K-Laser treatment arrives at Natterjacks!

We are absolutely thrilled to have added K-laser to our growing list of advanced rehabilitative and regenerative facilities here at Natterjacks.  Read on to find out how this remarkable new treatment may benefit your pet – you’ll soon be asking your doctor to send you for laser too!

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate tissues at the cellular level. It does this by increasing metabolic activity within the cells and improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane.  This increases production of cellular energy (ATP) and leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health. The results – which have been proven in thousands of recent studies – are improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.

Laser Therapeutic Effects

During each painless treatment, laser energy increases the local capillary microcirculation drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This accelerates healing and also reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.

Can it be used alongside my pet’s existing medication?

Yes, it absolutely should as it will make it more effective!  By increasing the blood flow to damaged cells and speeding up transport into the cells, the availability and effect of medications at the affected area is multiplied without increasing the risk of side effects elsewhere.  K-laser will therefore naturally enhance the effectiveness of treatments such as cartrophen, anti-flammatories, pain-killers or antibiotics and may allow use of a lower dose of certain drugs that carry a risk of side effects (such as some anti-inflammatory painkillers).  Furthermore, K laser will increase the effectiveness of other regenerative treatments such as Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma.

What does it cost?

As you would expect from us, we are offering the highest level K-laser Cube 4 treatment at ground-breakingly low prices, with treatment ranging from only £6-18 and discounts for complete courses.

Are all lasers the same?

No. The K-laser Cube 4 is the most advanced system available.  An internal computer allows us to vary wavelength, frequency, duration and power for each treatment and it is extremely powerful with consistently proven effects.  It is therefore currently the only laser treatment unit to be covered by pet insurance companies.

How many treatments are needed?

Treatment protocols vary with the condition and the regimes can be quite flexible depending on your diary and your pet’s needs.   Some minor wounds or incisions may only need 1 or 2 treatments. Other more serious wounds or long term/chronic orthopaedic problems will likely need an initial loading course of 3-6 treatments over a few weeks followed up with monthly top-ups (which could be combined with e.g. cartrophen injections). Laser is very safe and it is very difficult to overdose treatment – some very severe, acute conditions may benefit from daily or even twice daily treatment for a while to maximise the effect and therefore benefit of the laser treatment.

How long does treatment take?

Each session lasts only a few minutes and minimal restraint is needed – most pets enjoy the soothing warm feel of the laser and will be eager to return for more!
