Do you know the Top Human Medications Toxic to Pets?

As pet parents we may be aware of poisons lurking under our sinks, but we may not realize that some of the biggest culprits are sitting in a drawer or in our medicine cabinets. Pets ingesting over-the-counter and prescription medications are common accidents. Here is a list of the top 10 human medications that most often poison our furry friends.
  • Pain Relievers (Ibuprofen, Naproxen , Acetaminophen)
  • Antidepressants (Zoloft, Cymbalta, Effexor)
  • ADD/ADHD medications (Ritalin, Vyvanse)
  • Sleep aids (Klonopin, Ambien, Lunesta)
  • Muscle Relaxants (Lioresal, Flexeril)
  • Heart Medications (Cartia, Cardizem)
If you suspect your pet has ingested any of these items (or any other items), please have the bottles available when you call us.

Laser Therapy for pets


 
The laser energy increases circulation which draws water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This initiates increasing cellular function and health which gives an optimal healing environment. As the injured area returns to normal, the pain is relieved and function is restored.
The treatments are cumulative in nature and last 3-8 minutes per site and require no anesthesia.  The frequency of visits varies with your pet’s condition. A sample schedule would be three times a week for the first week, twice the second week, and once the third week. Some patients will have a positive response in just one treatment, while others should see improvements in the second week.

Call us today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Williams or Dr. Janosco and learn more about how Laser Therapy can help promote healing, quicken recovery time, increase flexibility, and relieve joint pain.
