Looking for a non-surgical treatment option to help your pet enjoy less pain and greater mobility? Shockwave therapy might be something to consider!

Shockwave therapy has been used in human medicine for many years with much success. Now, the same benefits of fast pain relief and restoration of healthy movement without the need for surgery or medications can be applied to our four-legged friends as well! Marina Village Veterinary is pleased to offer PulseVet shockwave technology to heal injured tissue, reduce lameness, increase mobility, and relieve pain in pets.

What is shockwave therapy?

Despite what its name implies, shockwave therapy does not involve the use of any type of electric shock. Instead, it uses high-energy sound waves that penetrate the surface of the body and naturally promote the regeneration of soft tissue, tendons, and bones. Shockwave therapy is non-invasive and completely painless, yet it can produce noticeable results in as few as one to three treatment sessions.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

  • Reduced inflammation and swelling
  • Increased blood flow
  • Improved wound healing
  • Reduced need for pharmaceuticals
  • Minimal to no side effects
  • Non-invasive
  • Short treatment times 
  • Quick results

What can shockwave therapy be used to treat?

At Marina Village Veterinary, we routinely use shock wave therapy to treat:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Hip and elbow dysplasia
  • Back pain
  • Wounds
  • Shoulder lameness
  • Bone fractures

How do sessions work and how many will my pet need?

Shockwave therapy treatments are relatively quick and easy, typically lasting no more than ten minutes or so. The number of sessions your pet will require to achieve optimal benefits will depend on a number of factors, such as the condition being addressed, it’s severity, and other considerations. Our team will evaluate your pet’s unique situation and provide you with a customized treatment recommendation.

We love this vet. Every time we went we were treated very warmly and there was a lot of love for our two dogs while we visited. We felt in good hands with the staff here. Highly recommend as a primary care provider for your pets.

These are exceptional people! I cannot say enough good things about this vet and everyone working there. They are kind, loving, compassionate, and the very best at what they do, we have never let our Beloved Pugs go in the back of any vet except this one. I fully and completely trust every one of the staff members.

I was in search of a veterinary for a bandage change for my fur baby being a bit hesitant about going anywhere else but where he was previously checked at when his incident happened. Went on google and Marina Village Veterinary came up as my first choice, gave them a call and the receptionist was really informative about being seen at their office. I went ahead and filled out a form on their online website, that same day I was called back from the office and was giving an appointment the following day as well as instructions as to how their appointments work, etc. As I came into the office I was greeted and got checked in quickly. Not to mention that both receptionist in the front desk were very nice and helpful; they even offered me something to drink. Hours later since I dropped off my fur baby, Dr. Ashley gave me a call being really explanatory, patient, caring, very helpful and informative about my fur babys situation and what are the following steps for his on going recovery. I am very delighted and appreciative with the service I have been provided since the first time I gave this place a call. 100% recommended, Thank you so much Marina Village Veterinary!🤍😊
