We like to see results from our efforts at Wilkinson Veterinary Clinic and we like to see them fast.

Laser Therapy is an easy, non-invasive treatment to many different problems. Due to the positive effects of the laser, the animal will need less medication which translates into even more positive effects.

There are no known negative side effects to this treatment. The laser requires no clipping or sedation so you don’t need to worry about doing therapy before, after or even during shows and performances. Treatment time is short and lasts 6 to 10 minutes.

Over 40 years of laser therapy have been scientifically proven by many scientists and many of the world’s top universities. Only recently have lasers this strong been available to the general public. Now you are able to provide your animal with treatment that very few humans even have access to.


Laser Therapy

The laser emitted by our machine penetrates deep into the animal’s body and speeds up the metabolism of the cell. The energy of the laser is absorbed by various chemicals in the body. The energy is converted to soothing heat.

The laser also stimulates the energy-producing part of the cell (mitochondria) to produce chemical energy (ATP). The laser also causes the cell to release a chemical called Nitric Oxide (NO) and other reactive oxygen species (ROS). NO and ROS are powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial compounds. They also act to improve blood flow.

Laser Therapy Can Help:

  • Reduce Inflammation and Scarring
  • Decrease Arthritis Pain
  • Speed up Healing and Reduce Down Time
  • Fight Infection
  • Reduce Pain
  • Decrease Swelling
  • Increase Blood Flow
  • Improve Normal Function


Shockwave Therapy

We seek out creative, new therapies to avoid invasive surgery. Alternative therapies like shockwave relieve pain without the damaging effects of surgery to treat many common issues.

An acoustic wave is created using our shockwave machine. These waves travel into the tissue and stimulate blood flow, metabolism, and bone growth. The treatment last for about 10 minutes and is an out-patient procedure with little to no negative side-effects. Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive alternative to surgery in many cases.

What is Shockwave Therapy Used For in Veterinary Medicine?

Our team uses Shockwave Therapy to treat problems such as joint pain/arthritis, muscle pain, stress fractures, tendon and ligament injuries, and other non-healing wounds.

At Wilkinson Veterinary Clinic, we do our best to avoid surgical intervention at all cost if possible. Our veterinarian believes that when non-invasive treatment is an option it can be better than surgery because we are able to eliminate many of the cons that are inherent with surgical procedures such as infection and healing time.

Shockwave therapy is very successful at reducing pain and healing time associated with both age and trauma.


Plason Therapy

Plason is the name of a machine that is able to convert a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen to a gas called nitric oxide. The name plason comes from the word plasma.

Nitrogen and Oxygen are both found in the air we breathe. This machine is able to convert those gasses into a usable form that is capable of assisting the body with the normal healing process.

“What does Plason do, and how does it work?”

Nitric Oxide (NO) is a compound that the body produces naturally to:

  • Fight infection
  • Kill bacteria
  • Increase blood flow to a target/injured area
  • Regulate blood pressure
  • Stimulate the brain
  • Protect the heart
  • Regulate nervous activity
  • Activate white blood cells that kill bacteria

The Plason produces NO, which we can use directly on wounds and other problem areas. By applying NO directly to wounds, we have seen remarkable success with difficult infections, large swellings, and even allergies.

Plason Therapy Sound Too Good to Be True?

Put our words to the test. This non-surgical and non-invasive treatment lasts 5 to 7 minutes, depending on the size of the affected area, and results can be as soon as the same day. Our veterinarians suggest multiple treatments in an effort to provide continuous support throughout the body’s healing process.

The beneficial effects of Nitric Oxide that have been discussed are supported by the research of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine winners Robert F. Furchgott, Louis J. Ignarro and Ferid Murad.
