Local Veterinarian Unveils New Therapy Laser Center
ROCKVILLE CENTER, NY
Animal Medical Hospital, at 779 Peninsula Boulevard in Hempstead
and Whitestone Veterinary Care in Whitestone Queens announces the immediate offering of laser therapy to pet owners in the
Nassau County metropolitan area. The addition is part of Animal Medical
Hospital's and Whitestone Veterinary Care's continued investment in advanced technologies and
progressive procedures in veterinary medicine.
Lasers have been
used in human medicine for over 30 years, but the latest technologies in
laser therapy are just beginning to appear in the veterinary field as
doctors and animal lovers learn more about the benefits they can
provide. Research indicates that the family pet is increasingly treated
as a member of the family, and maintaining a quality of life for that
pet is very important to the owner. Dr. Douglas Wyler, owner of Animal
Medical Hospital for over 35 years, has seen the ongoing evolution of
the human-animal bond.
"More and more, our clients are demanding the highest levels of care for their pets," states Dr. Wyler. "Laser
therapy provides us with an opportunity to meet the needs of our
patients, and offer the highest levels of care possible." Laser
therapy has several benefits over traditional pain and mobility
treatments. These include no toxic side effects, very rapid
disappearance of pain, even pain of neurological origin. In addition it
is very cost effective. During therapy, the laser system synchronizes
energy frequencies delivering superior results in less time.
versatility of the laser allows a doctor to treat sore muscles and
joints, degenerative joint conditions, neurological pain, chronic
non-healing wounds as well as most inflammatory conditions, including
severe chronic ear infections.
Dr. Wyler summarizes, "We
pride ourselves on staying on the leading edge of technology and
medicine, and educating our clients on the various levels of care
available. Laser therapy is the future of veterinary medicine, and we
feel our clients deserve to have that option when choosing the best care
for their pet."

"Buddy ... who for years suffered
from polyarthritis. By January, his condition had gotten so bad that
she was considering putting him down. This is the same Buddy that had flunked acupuncture and had become
so high-strung and crabby that he only let Dr. Miller Becnel even
consider treating him with her new LiteCure laser if the beam came from
afar, and then only when his favorite technician eased him into
was until Buddy felt the warmth in his joints and learned to associate
the intense light with waves of relief. More than three months into
his treatment, he has regained mobility and a level of comfort Dr.
Miller Becnel thought might be unreachable."
trusty 135-pound German shepherd, Rex, has suffered from a limp and
joint pain for the past two years. This man's best friend, 70 in dog
years, 10 in people years, needed treatment for his arthritic pain. But
rather than opting for traditional pills or surgery, Dougherty tried a
new, seemingly magical, laser therapy that the local veterinary
clinic, Village Animal Clinic in North Palm Beach, Fla., was offering to arthritic dog and cats.
"Rex was always a very active dog, but he started exhibiting some problems with his shoulders," said Dougherty,
who owns three other dogs. "He probably has about two years left, and
we didn't want to take out six months of his life for surgery, so we
Dougherty said that Rex's limp and overall activity and happiness improved almost immediately after the first laser treatment.
"We used to say that Rex
was like the old man on the hill," said Dougherty. "He'd point out the
distraction and then the younger ones would go after it. But now, he's
back and a part of the gang."
A study by Colorado State University veterinarians and partners at
the Fort Collins Veterinary Emergency and Reha-bilitation Hospital is
looking into the possibility that using laser therapy may decrease the
length of time a dog stays in a veterinary clinic after a snake bite.
Rattlesnake venom causes pain, swelling and a low blood platelet
count, which can prevent blood from clotting. Laser therapy, also known
as low-level light therapy, speeds the cellular repair process and
metabolism within cells, may reduce pain and swelling from bites and
help impacted tissue heal more quickly.
