Eliminating or minimizing your pet’s discomfort is one of our medical team’s top priorities. To that end, we have invested in a therapeutic laser, which we use to stimulate and accelerate the healing of damaged cells relating to many conditions, including arthritis, acute and chronic pain, infection, injuries, sprains & strains, inflammation, edema and wound healing. Almost any medical condition can be improved by laser therapy.
During each painless, noninvasive treatment, the energy from the laser increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. In addition, it can accelerate tissue repair and cell growth, improve circulation and nerve function, reduce scar tissue formation and help the immune system fend off infection. Laser therapy causes no adverse effects on healthy cells. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved, allowing your pet to quickly return to his or her normal activities.

What to expect
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy uses stem cells from your pet’s body to repair and regenerate damaged tissues. Stem cells have the unique ability to mature into cells with specialized functions, which makes them extremely valuable for repairing certain body tissues damaged by injury or disease. Stem cell therapy is most commonly used to treat osteoarthritis in dogs and cats, but clinical research continues to explore other uses for stem cells, including repairing bone, ligament, and spinal cord injuries and treating kidney and liver disease.
To make this promising and exciting treatment available to your pet, Dr. Jessen has been certified to perform stem cell therapy. The decision to use stem cell therapy is based on your pet’s specific condition, age, breed, previous treatment and response, severity and duration, and anesthesia/sedation risk. A full examination and consultation are necessary before proceeding with this innovative medical treatment.
