About Larchmont Animal Clinic

Beyond providing routine diagnostic services, the Larchmont Animal Clinic utilizes the latest in digital x-ray and radiologic imaging technology. The facility has been certified by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) for more than 26 years, a distinction that sets the organization apart from much of its competition.

About Veterinary Laser Therapy

Accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), Larchmont Animal Clinic upholds a dedication to offering its patients innovative and high-quality care. Toward this end, Larchmont Animal Clinic has introduced the Companion Therapy Laser.

Veterinary laser therapy offers veterinarians and pet owners with a noninvasive, drug-free option for infection and pain control. It may serve as a replacement for traditional therapies or as a supplemental treatment, depending on the pet's needs. Many pets and their owners have found it effective in treating the pain of degenerative joint disease, tendonitis, arthritis, and traumatic injury. Veterinarians also have used it for general and postsurgical pain management, as well as for dermatological and inflammatory conditions.

Laser therapy works via the transmission of non-thermal light photons. Over the course of several minutes, the body absorbs these cells and injured tissue becomes stimulated. This stimulation results in an increased metabolism that speeds circulation, lowers inflammation, and speeds the healing process. A pet will often relax during the treatment, as a human would during massage, and may appear more at ease or energetic as the pain control affects his or her daily life.
