Continuing to be a leader in the use of new technology, Oconee Veterinary Hospital has recently acquired a new FDA approved Class IV Therapy Laser unit, manufactured specifically for use in companion animals.
Widely used in human rehabilitation programs and by professional sports trainers, Class IV Laser Therapy alleviates pain, reduces inflammation and accelerates healing. Deep penetrating photons of light from the laser influence cell chemistry and metabolism in a variety of beneficial ways. Best of all, treatment with a Class IV Therapy Laser is completely painless.
What Could be Causing Your Pet’s Allergy?
Food Allergies – Many pet foods are made with hormones, preservatives, and traces of pesticides. Corn and grain are common fillers and can cause allergies for many pets.
Airborne allergens – Allergens can be detrimental to your pet’s skin. Even common household toxins such as cleaners and air fresheners affect your pet’s health.
Outdoor Allergens – Pesticides, fertilizers, bacteria and viruses can weaken your pet’s immune system and make them susceptible to allergic reactions.
Other Common Allergens – Fleas, mites, ticks, ringworm, and lice may cause your pet allergic irritations.

Dr. Bangle’s interest in canine physical rehabilitation stems from his desire to learn all he can about exercise physiology and mechanisms of recovery. He became determined to pursue training in this area after once having a 15 year old Chocolate lab, Emily, who was diagnosed with debilitating arthritis. He felt more could have been done to improve her quality of life. He also owned a Dachshund, Lucy, who had a diagnosis of an acute neurological condition that proper rehabilitation could have assisted in recovery. Read more about it!
Dr. Bangle is a member of the AVMA, GVMA, and has completed course work from the University Of Tennessee College Of Veterinary Medicine in Canine Rehabilitation.
