Laser therapy is the stimulation of tissue to promote healing in animals. There are two basic kinds of laser therapy: cold and hot. We’re going to look at both types and how they’re used to treat different conditions.
A little scratching here and there is to be expected from our canine companions, but at what point should you be concerned? If your pet’s itching, scratching and even biting himself to such an extent that he’s pulled out fur and his legs are so raw that it’s only a matter of time before he tears through his own skin, then it may be a sign of something more serious than your everyday annoying itch. Food allergies could be to blame.
Normally, your first assumption when you see your dog scratching is that he is under assault by fleas; but sometimes, there’s more going on than just your typical flea infestation. Hot spots are uncomfortable patches that dogs lick or scratch incessantly.
If your pup runs circles around you one day and is lame the next, he may have an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury. ACL injuries occur frequently in canines, with estimates of over 1 million dogs suffering ACL injuries per year.
Caring for your puppy’s health
Bringing your puppy home for the first time is a brilliant feeling; there’s the excitement, the anticipation, the trepidation and, of course, the love. The trepidation is justified because raising a puppy is a huge responsibility and maintaining puppy health is not joke.
Caring for your kitten
Kittens are little more than balls of fluff when you bring them home, they’re ineffably cute but they’re also vulnerable and need a great deal of care to maintain kitten health and ensure their happiness well into adulthood.
Caring for Senior Pets
Our furry companions need extra special care as they age, just like people do. They become more vulnerable to illness and injury and they may develop chronic conditions, like heart conditions or hip dysplasia, which require ongoing medical treatment or a special diet.
