Some like it hot; some not.
We apply hot or cold elements to the body to relieve pain or improve your pet’s health. Hot water, ultrasound, heating pads or ice packs, and aquatic therapy are commonly used.
Superficial heating of an area increases blood flow, reduces pain, relaxes muscles and treats muscle spasms. Special hot packs or infrared heat lamps are often used.
Cold (cryo) therapy provides pain relief, reduces swelling and hemorrhage, and decreases muscle spasms.
