Laser Therapy Reduces Pain and Speeds Healing
College Park Animal Hospital is excited to offer our clients Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, and drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols.

Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.

Pain relief is provided in just a few minutes of therapy and that alone improves the quality of life for your pet.
