At Mills Animal Hospital, we understand that pets can suffer from debilitating pain just like people can, and relieving it is essential to their quality of life. That’s why we provide various animal rehabilitation treatment options, including holistic injections.

Cat and Dog Laser Therapy

Laser therapy, also known as photobiomodulation therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that works wonders for dogs and cats of all ages. It harnesses the power of light energy to target affected areas, significantly reducing inflammation and pain while accelerating the healing process. This therapy is particularly beneficial for pets recovering from injuries, or surgeries, or managing chronic conditions like arthritis. Sessions are quick and stress-free, making it an ideal option for pet health and comfort.

The effectiveness of laser therapy is evident in its ability to stimulate cellular regeneration and improve circulation, leading to quicker tissue repair and relief from discomfort. Pet owners often report seeing noticeable improvements in their pets' mobility and energy levels after just a few treatments.

This treatment utilizes your pet's natural healing capabilities to aid recovery from various conditions and injuries.

How Do Holistic Injections Work?

Holistic injection therapy involves utilizing a sample of your pet's blood, which is processed to concentrate essential healing elements. This concentrated solution is then injected directly into the affected area, harnessing the body's innate healing mechanisms. Through the release of growth factors and proteins, these injections stimulate tissue repair and reduce inflammation, offering a safe and effective treatment option for many pets with minimal risk of side effects.
