Heartworm Causes

When a mosquito bites a dog with heartworm, it ingests the microfilaria, or baby heartworms, along with the dog’s blood. These microfilariae mature over the course of about a week within the mosquito, transforming into a larval form of the heartworm. After the larval form is achieved, the mosquito passes it along to other dogs that it bites. 

Without the intermediary step of the mosquito, heartworm disease would not spread. Because of the parasite’s reliance on mosquitoes, the disease spreads particularly rapidly during the summertime, when temperatures are warmer.

Laser Therapy Treatment Programs
 

How does laser therapy work?
The laser beam stimulates the cells and tissue to be healthy. It also reduces inflammation so that healing can begin. By reducing inflammation, the laser is also a great tool for helping to minimize the pain of many chronic conditions, like arthritis. 

What will my animal feel when receiving the laser treatments? 
Laser therapy is a painless application of healing light. Your animal might feel a slight tingling as the light enters the tissue and cells, but it is very minimal if at all. 

How long will each treatment take? 
The treatment time depends on how chronic the condition is and the depth the laser light needs to reach to be effective. However, almost all treatments will be between two and ten minutes. 

 

How many treatments will my animal need? 
The number of treatments can vary greatly based on the condition, but many pet owners notice a positive difference within three or four treatments. 

What are the cost of the treatments?
Talk to your veterinary staff as cost can vary depending on if you purchase a package of multiple treatments, or would prefer to pay per treatment, but treatments are reasonable in cost. 

Are the results guaranteed? 
We are not able to guarantee the results on every animal. However, laser therapy has been proven to be effective in clinical studies and in rehab settings in both human medical and veterinary medical. There are over thirty years of research which supports the efficacy of this holistic treatment.

Preventing and Treating Hot Spots

Acute moist dermatitis, more commonly known as hot spots, occurs due to a bacterial infection on your pet’s skin. Your dog or cat will naturally bite, chew, lick or scratch his skin in response to an irritant. Unfortunately for your pet, this tends to increase rather than decrease his discomfort. Anal gland disease, allergies to fleas or food ingredients, mange, tick bites, and inadequate grooming are the primary causes of hot spots in companion animals.
