"We're new to town and read the reviews for Dr Price and decided to Windmill a go. So happy we did! Their whole office from the front desk to the treatment and meeting Dr Price was 5 Star all the way! I know our babies will be well taken care of! I even had a technician help me out to the car which made my day as I had my hands FULL! Would recommend to anyone! "

"This is the best vet in Abilene! I have tried countless other veterinary clinics and Windmill out-does them all. They value my pet and my experience more than my money, and they are always showing care and compassion to both my dog and me. They even call after every appointment, just to check-up and make sure we're doing okay! AMAZING service and incredible people!"

Therapeutic Laser Treatments

back to services

LASER THERAPY REDUCES PAIN AND SPEEDS HEALING

WINDMILL ANIMAL HOSPITAL is excited to offer our clients Companion Laser Therapy.  Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols.  Relief of pain and/or improvement is often noticed within hours, depending on the condition and your pet's unique health status.  Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.

Applications for laser therapy include:

•    treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, and hip dysplasia
•    general pain management (sprains, strains, and stiffness)
•    post-surgical pain (spays, neuters, declaws, orthopedic procedures, etc.)
•    skin problems (hot spots, lick granulomas, pyodermas)
•    dental procedures (gingivitis, extractions, gingival surgery)
•    fractures and traumatic wounds (bites, abrasions, burns, rattlesnake strikes, and other lesions)
•    ear infections (external and middle ear infections)



 

How does it work?

Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within.  Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body for about 3 to 8 minutes, and are absorbed by the injured cells.  The cells are then stimulated by the energy provided by the photons, and respond with a higher rate of metabolism.  This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.  Laser therapy helps the pet get better, faster.

What can my pet expect during a laser therapy treatment session?

Simply put, it provides relief.  As the laser is administered, your pet will relax and enjoy the treatment.  The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experiences will dissipate.  Occasionally, angry cats will start to purr, and dogs will actually fall asleep during their therapy session.  Frequently, after therapy, we hear:  "He's acting like a puppy again" or "She can actually jump onto the chair again."  Pain relief is provided in just a few minutes of therapy, and that alone improves the quality of life for your pet.



 

What are the signs that my pet can benefit from Companion Laser Therapy?

Many of our laser therapy patients are older animals with musculoskeletal ailments.  Some signs that your senior companion is experiencing pain or discomfort are:
•    abnormal sitting or lying posture
•    circling multiple times before lying down
•    restlessness--won't stay in one place or position to sleep
•    whining, groaning, or other vocalizations
•    limping, inability to get up or lie down
•    lack of grooming
•    won't wag tail
•    licking or biting areas
•    lack of appetite
•    trembling
