LASER THERAPY

Companion Jump Start Program

WHAT IS LASER THERAPY?

Laser therapy is a noninvasive treatment designed to reduce pain and inflammation, and to speed healing. This treatment is quickly becoming standard of care in both human and veterinary medicine. Our staff members administer laser therapy via a handpiece that emits this therapeutic infrared light in a fast, drug-free, and soothing treatment. The light can treat surface problems such as wounds, as well as deeper structures, penetrating through fur, skin, and fat if necessary to reach damaged tissue. The therapeutic infrared light targets the mitochondria in damaged cells and stimulates them to regenerate and stimulates them to return to optimal function. This regenerative process is called photobiomodulation (PBM). PBM does not impact normal cells, but can help damaged cells to recover from injury faster. Laser therapy can be utilized as an adjunct to existing treatments, often reducing or replacing the need for pain medications.

WHAT ARE TREATMENTS LIKE?

Laser therapy treatments are fast and pain-free, making them well-tolerated by most pets. There is no clipping or shaving required for the treatment area. When your pet arrives for therapy they will be situated in a comfortable position, and may be outfitted with laser-safe doggles. You will also receive laser-safe eyewear to wear during treatment if you remain with your pet during therapy. Treatments take approximately 5 – 10 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area and the condition being treated. During this treatment your pet will experience a soothing warmth that often relaxes patients, and sometimes makes them go to sleep! Some conditions require several treatment sessions for optimal outcomes. When your pet’s condition is evaluated your veterinarian will discuss their recommendations with you.

Danette Roberts

Dr. Mom

Hi, my name is Danette and I am a mother, wife, friend and veterinarian. When I graduated from vet school my son was 3 years old. I carried him onto the stage as I accepted my diploma, from that day on he called me Dr. Mom. That became my nick name and my friends and family have called me that ever since.

I have been a veterinarian in the Spokane and Post Falls area for the past 20 years. I graduated from WSU college of Veterinary medicine in 1999. I received a bachelor’s in animal nutrition in 1995 and an associate’s in Veterinary Technology in 1989. I have wanted to be a veterinarian since I was about 4 years old. As a child I was the kid who brought home the injured bird or the baby bunny and would attempt to nurse them back to life. Fortunately, my success rate has greatly improved since those early days. Along the way I have never veered from my goals. As a kid I showed my dog (Lady), rabbits, my pony (Cody) and my horse (Targa) in 4-H. I learned at a young age the sacrifices it takes to care for animals and the joys and heart break that go along with it.

I love what I do and am very compassionate about my clients and their beloved pets. My goal is to treat each one of my clients and patients as an individual and provide the care that they and their furry friends need. I believe that honesty and open communication is very important.

I am excited to offer my services, knowledge, kindness, honesty and support to my clients and their beloved pets for many more years to come.

Sincerely,
Danette Roberts DVM

How often should my pet receive a dental exam?

We recommend having your animals teeth examined and cleaned one to two times a year. This keeps good attention to one’s dental condition and keep your animals stinky breath under reasonable control.

Do you board animals at your clinic?

At this time we don’t have any boarding facilities.

Should my pet be spayed/neutered? What is the best age for this?

Spaying and Neutering limits the chances of reproductive cancer, as well as removes an animals ability to reproduce. Common practice is to have this operation done as early as 6-9 months; however, it can be done at most ages.

My pet has surgery tomorrow, is there anything I should or shouldn't do?

We recommend that you withhold food to your pet for 12 hours prior to surgery. Additionally, the morning of their surgery, try to limit their stress and exertion. Following surgery, we will prescribe medicine and directions as needed.
