We are now using K-Laser

In addition to accupuncture, we are offering K-Laser treatments for your pet.  We are using the K-Laser to help our clients pets with many different conditions to bring them pain relief, reduction in swelling and faster healing times.

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy, or “photobiomodulation”, is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970’s. Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is being used extensively in the United States.

Laser Therapeutic Effects

During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.

Does it hurt? What does a treatment feel like?

There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally the patient feels mild, soothing warmth, or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.

Employee Award of the Month 

The employee receiving the award of the month for July is Buffy Livingston! Buffy has been one of our awesome technicians since 2011. She started as a veterinary assistant and moved to our technician team when she received her license. She is a great technician and works well with our team. Buffy attended Argosy University Twin Cities for Veterinary Technology. She is a team player, as she offers to cover other team member’s shifts when needed. She adjusts to client and patient needs. Buffy is also very helpful to the doctors in the evenings when caring for hospitalized pets.

When she isn’t working hard at Mountain View Veterinary Hospital, Buffy enjoys watching movies, putting puzzles together, board games and reading. Her favorite restaurant is Olive Garden and she enjoys being anywhere with friends or family. She also enjoys being in Minnesota, her home state. She is owned by one cat; who lives up to his name, Razorfang the Fierce.



Mountain View Veterinary Hospital would like to thank Jack Marshall. Jack built the hospital with his wife, Dr. Rhonda Snyder. This hospital would not be as awesome as it is without Jack. He spends tireless hours building, remodeling, painting and fixing a variety of things in the hospital. He took time away from his wife and kids while working full time at the Point Defiance Zoo. Now that he has retired, he has devoted his time to provide Mountain View Veterinary Hospital with much needed maintenance. Jack has shown us all what true work ethic is. Because of his hard work, and with the support of their family, whether born to them or hired by them, the dream of helping animals has become a reality.
