“Laser Therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation for pain conditions such as fractures, wounds, post-surgery pain, post-dentals, arthritis, hip dysplasia or degenerative joint disease, among others painful conditions,” says Spinosa. “Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours, and can work in conjunction with regular treatment protocols by your favorite veterinarian in Gainesville or Newberry.”


Dr. Spinosa obtained a bachelor’s degree in animal sciences in 2001 from the University of Florida College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and a doctorate in veterinary medicine in 2005 at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. She enjoys all aspects of veterinary work with a special interest in acupuncture, feline medicine and dermatology.


They accept Trupanion pet insurance, which offers 90 percent coverage with unlimited payouts, and many breed hereditary and congenital conditions are covered. “The thing that clients like most is that they are the only pet insurance company that pays the vet directly, so you are not involved in some lengthy claims process with paperwork,” says Spinosa.
