Laser Therapy:

Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared modality that reduces inflammation and that results in pain reduction. Laser Therapy is effective in treating acute pain, chronic conditions, and post-operative pain. Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Treatments to deeper tissues are administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Typically, even chronic patients exhibit improvement after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Laser therapy utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Despite short treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment.

As with people, the phrase "you are what you eat" pertains to pets too.  The quality of the diet you choose for your pet will set the stage for his/her immediate and future health. Not only does a premium diet offer a healthy skin and coat on the outside, but also aids healthy organ function on the inside.  Our staff will help you to decide the best diet for your cat or dog based on breed, age and medical conditions to which your pet may be predisposed.  At Maple Tree Veterinary Hospital, we have available a full line of regular and prescription nutritional formulas to satisfy your pet's health needs.

Preventive Medicine
The doctor and staff at Maple Tree Veterinary Hospital are focused on preventing what diseases are preventable.  Maintaining a health vaccine schedule and parasite testing is important. Your pet's individual lifestyle will be evaluated and vaccine needs tailored to fit the lifestyle.  The most important part of preventive visits is the comprehensive annual physical examination (for pets 7 years and older every 6 months).  With pets aging approximately 7 years to our 1 year, our professional staff will pay close attention to changes and certain conditions and address them before they become problems.

We offer the latest, state of the art digital radiography and consultations by board certified radiologists when needed. Radiology or X-rays help our veterinarians evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems.
