Laser TherapyTherapeutic Care for Your Pet

At Meridian Animal Hospital, we believe in using some of the most advanced medical treatments to care for your pet. Whether your pet has recently undergone surgery or constantly suffers from joint pain, our laser therapy can alleviate discomfort. Therapeutic lasers have been scientifically proven to accomplish reduction of inflammation, relief of pain, and accelerated healing time.

Meridian Animal Hospital has the highest level of therapeutic laser available for your animal companion. The 15 watt Lite Cure Companion Laser is one of the best tools for therapeutic animal care. Class IV therapy lasers project a beam of laser light that penetrates deeply into tissues through hair, skin, and blood. These penetrating packets of laser light induce chemical changes in the cells of muscle, nerve, and bone. This process is called photo-bio-modulation and can often bring great relief to small animals.
