It can be tough as our pets get older. We all want out four legged friends to have the best quality of life possible, and good, pain free mobility is a big part of that. That’s why Fisher Glen Animal Hospital is proud to announce we now offer cold laser therapy for senior pets!

What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold laser therapy has been used since the early 1970’s. It is a simple and painless procedure that is similar to shining a flashlight close to the skin. There is no sensation or pain involved. The process involves application of a low power red light (red and near infrared light) that directs biostimulative light energy to the body’s cells. The cells then convert this into chemical energy to promote natural healing and pain relief, reducing your pet’s discomfort.

There have been many studies and much research done on the subject, and to date there have been no adverse side effects found from cold laser therapy.

What Does it Do?

In addition to reducing inflammation and improving soft tissue healing in wounds, tendons and muscles, the procedure also acts as an analgesia, reducing both acute and chronic pain.

What Results Can I Expect?

After trying cold laser therapy, many people report that their pets are acting much younger, that they are better about to stand and walk by themselves and are even climbing the stairs again, things they hadn’t seen in years! While of course no health care device or effect can be guaranteed, the results have been very promising. If you would like more information or to book a session for your pet, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us today!

As veterinarians, it’s something we hear all the time. People want to know what’s the best way to get a scared cat to the vet, or how to get a skittish cat in their carrier. They worry about their furry little friends, because trips to the vet can often result in fear and aggressive behaviours.

Here at Fisher Glen Animal Hospital, we know that the right clinic can make all the difference in your pet’s experience. Transporting cats in particular can be extra stressful, and we want to give your cats as calm and relaxing an experience as possible. Do not hesitate to let us know if we can help you prepare for your visit in any way! In certain cases we may even recommend a light cat sedative that you can give to your pet at home before you leave the house.

Now with all that in mind, here are some tips on getting your cat to the vet!

Getting Your Cat Into Their Carrier

Make sure that you select a roomy, sturdy, well-ventilated carrier, and only EVER one cat per carrier! Ideally the top should come off as well as having a front door. Try to keep the cat carrier out at home somewhere where your cat likes to spend time, with some cozy blankets or clothing items that smell like you, so they consider it a comforting place. It can really help to alleviate the stressful process of getting a scared cat into a carrier when it’s a common-place environment for them. Leaving treats or toys in the carrier helps too!

We actually have one cat who likes to just hang out in his carrier from time to time! As we all know, one of a kitty’s greatest joys in life is finding new and interesting places to nap. Ours has taken to dozing off in his carrier during the day, in between his frequent naps in random drawers and cardboard boxes, of course!

When it comes to transporting the cat carrier, always carry it with your arms underneath so that it’s stable, and not swinging around like a ride at the fair.

Travelling With Your Cat: The Car Trip To The Vet

How to transport a cat by car is another question we often hear from pet owners. Cats are very sensitive to noise, and car trips tend to be much more stressful for them than for their canine counterparts. However, classical music (at a low volume) seems to agree with them in the car. Cover the carrier with a towel that smells like them, and you can also use cat “happy” pheromone spray to make the car trip less stressful. Do not feed them for a few hours before leaving, to help with car sickness, and to make them more likely to accept our treats!

Once at the clinic put them in the cat waiting area in the special pod that we have built for them, facing outdoors so they can see what is going on, but not the dogs. We also make every effort possible to see them in our cat exam room, which has lots of extra accommodations to make them feel more comfortable.

Returning Home

It is not unusual for your cat to need to decompress a bit when they arrive home. Let them exit the carrier at their own speed, and if you have other pets you may want to keep them separate for a short period. Rubbing your cat with your scent or the scent of the other cats may help take away the “vet smell,” and speed reintegration into the family.
