Pet Laser Therapy at Northridge Animal Medical Center

As your trusted veterinarians, our team at Northridge Animal Medical Center is here to provide your pets with the highest standard of veterinary care. We understand that nobody wants to see their pet in pain, yet many conditions (such as arthritis) can cause dogs and cats alike to suffer from extreme pain and discomfort on a daily basis. In our office, we’re happy to offer laser therapy as one of our many services to help your pet find relief from pain.

What is Laser Therapy?

Multiwave Locked System (MLS) laser therapy is a treatment used to treat pain and inflammation in pets using therapeutic wavelengths and energetic synergy. Specifically, this treatment utilizes special lasers to gently and carefully penetrate tissue several centimeters and treat symptoms without the use of more invasive treatments or surgeries. The light from this specialized laser can be adjusted to different wavelengths to relieve pain, improve blood circulation, and even release endorphins in pets.

MLS laser therapy treatments can be performed on both dogs and cats, and are generally performed in sessions of as little as 10 minutes at a time (though larger animals may require longer treatments).

Benefits of Laser Therapy for Dogs and Cats

There are a number of benefits of using laser therapy to treat various medical conditions in dogs and cats. Perhaps the greatest benefit is that the treatment sessions are non-invasive, which drastically reduces any risk of side effects or complications that would otherwise be present with surgeries and other treatments.

Furthermore, laser therapy can be extremely effective in helping pets find relief from pain, in addition to reducing inflammation and releasing “feel-good” hormones in the bloodstream that can help your pet cope with and manage various medical conditions. Laser therapy has also been found to stimulate protein synthesis and cell growth, which is ideal for healing.

Common Conditions Treated by Laser Therapy

There are many medical conditions that can be treated with MLS laser therapy, such as:

  • Arthritis – Laser therapy can be used to reduce inflammation in the joints, providing relief from pain.
  • Back Pain – Laser therapy can treat pain through inflammation reduction.
  • Knee Pain – Most knee pain is caused by joint inflammation, so symptoms can be relieved by reducing inflammation with laser therapy.
  • Hip Dysplasia – Therapy reduces pain by treating inflammation and promoting new cell growth, thus relieving hip pain.
  • Torn Cruciate Ligament – Laser therapy can be used to stimulate new cell growth and promote healing.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update

Dear NAMC Family:

With COVID-19 in the forefront of everyone's minds, we would like to update you on measures that we are taking to help keep us all (two-legged and four-legged) healthy and cared for.

As safety is our top priority, Northridge Animal Medical Center is strongly recommending that clients not attend their pets' appointments and adhere to our new Drop-Off Policy.

For drop-off, please call us as you are arriving in our rear parking lot and an attendant will take your pet in for you. For pick-up, please arrive five minutes prior to the end of your pet's appointment or at the time specified by our team, pick up at our rear entrance and an attendant will bring your pet to your car. Of course you may also wait for us to finish our evaluation and call you with our findings and treatment plans.

Our phone number is (818) 886-1216.

Please specify your concerns and share updates about your pet on the Drop-Off Form provided. You can also email us with your pet’s concerns. Updates following treatment will be emailed to you or shared over the phone. We also may email you images or videos as a visual aid when needed or required.

In addition to the above logistical changes, we have already implemented enhanced sanitation measures within the building, including:

  • Additional hand sanitizing stations throughout facility
  • Disinfection of facility several times daily
  • Educating employees on best practices to avoid spread of pathogens

COVID-19 IS NOT TRANSMITTED THROUGH PETS, SO LET'S KEEP GIVING THEM LOVE AND KEEPING THEM HEALTHY.

We appreciate you so much. Thank you for bearing with us as we move forward.

Lots of well wishes,

Dr. Frank Marco and the Northridge Animal Medical Center Team
