Class IV Therapy LASER is Here!!

We are proud to offer Class IV therapy LASER as our newest service in 2011. Heartland added the most powerful 12 Watt LASER on the market to improve care for your pet!

k laserThe therapy LASER emits light in infra-red wavelength in a very concentrated beam that can penetrate up to 5cm deep.  Light at that spectrum speeds cell activity and healing, opens blood vessels and lymphatics, and decreases inflammatory chemicals and free-radicals. 

Therapy LASER is useful for treating many medical and surgical conditions to reduce medications, speed healing, bring down swelling and inflammation, and to increase comfort.

Case Studies:  Molly,  a 4 year old female Newfoundland with severe hip problems from a birth defect. 
She had surgery on one hip and has arthritis.  She lays a lot and is on many medications to help her get up and move. molly dog

We started her on a twice weekly deep hip therapy protocol and the results are amazing.  Within a day she was up and moving more, within a week chasing the ball she hasn't touched for a year, and within 3 weeks, off all her Rx medications.

Molly's Mom says "I Can't believe she is the same dog.  She has so much energy now and can do things she hasn't been able to do for a few years!  Thank you for giving my dog back to us!"
