Hospital News

Laser therapy

We are pleased to announce that we are now performing therapy laser treatments. Therapy lasers are used for a number of ailments such as, arthritis management, post-op pain reduction and healing, torn ACL's, lick granulomas, and much more! Please call the office if you have questions or would like to schedule a treatment.  Here is what a few of our furry friends "parents" are saying:

 

"I was at a point with my dog’s chronic back pain that I felt traditional medications were simply not enough to offer the kind of quality of life I wanted for her.   I chose to add laser therapy at Bluffs Animal Hospital to her treatment plan and have been thrilled with the changes.  I have noticed more energy, much more puppy-like play, more engagement in social situations, and have even been able to decrease the dose of most of her medications.  She even started playing with some of her toys that she hasn’t played with in a long time!  I feel the laser has given my dog back some of the life she deserves."

 

"Since I began laser therapy for our giant breed dog we have noticed some very positive changes.  She had been afflicted with hip and elbow arthritis for some time.  She is much more comfortable in her rear legs, enjoys walking with me much more than she used to, and seems to be generally enjoying life more.
 
"We started laser therapy for our dog’s knees about three weeks ago.  We have been managing his arthritis with traditional medications on a regular basis for the past few years, but were interested in a therapy that would have the potential to help him gain as much comfort and mobility as possible.  Since we have started the laser therapy at Bluffs Animal Hospital we have noticed that he is stronger, seems much happier, acts like a puppy again, enjoys swimming for a longer period of time, and even occasionally jumps!  We have been very pleased with the benefits of laser therapy."
 
"Laser therapy at Bluffs Animal Hospital has been a wonderful addition to our dog’s overall care.  Since starting the laser therapy for arthritis we have noticed an increase in his activity level and more pep in his step.   We are excited to see him going up and down the stairs with much more ease and seems to experience less pain, getting up after sleeping with less effort.  We have been able to decrease the amount of medications we are administering and feel we have given him a great boost in his quality of life."
 
Digital x-ray system
We have upgraded to a digital x-ray system which has numerous benefits for both you and your pets.  Our digital x-rays allow you and your doctor to see much greater viewing detail in your pets' x-rays, aiding in diagnostic acumen.  The instant processing of x-rays is easier on your pet, as well as your valued time spent at our hospital.  Also, if needed, we can quickly burn your pets' images on a CD for you to take with you, or we can email them to a specialist for further review and aid with diagnosing.
