What Is Laser Therapy, and How Can It Help Your Pet?

Laser Therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to:

  • Reduce pain
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Accelerate healing

Laser Therapy is used to:

  • Reduce pain and discomfort
  • Speed up healing
  • Increase joint mobility

How does Laser Therapy work?

  • Photons of laser light penetrate deep into tissue.
  • These photons are absorbed in the cells, which initiates a photo-chemical response.

This response in the cells blocks nerve impulses, accelerates tissue repair, increases circulation, and reduces swelling.

 When do pets benefit from Laser Therapy?

If your pet is in pain, experiencing inflammation, or has a wound, they may benefit from laser therapy. This includes patients suffering from aches and pains (including from old age), patients who have just had a surgical procedure, or patients who have an open wound or recent injury.

Laser therapy can be used for…

  • Arthritis, no matter how chronic or severe
  • Wounds including bites, burns, scrapes, and cuts
  • Hip Dysplasia and Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD) or other joint conditions
  • Accelerating the healing process and reducing pain and inflammation after surgeries, including spays, neuters, declaws, tumor removals, and emergency cases

Laser therapy can also be used for…

  • Dental procedures
  • Ear Infections
  • Skin infections and allergies
  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Bruising and swelling
  • Many other conditions (ask us if your pet can benefit)

What role does laser therapy play in a treatment plan?

Laser therapy can be used in conjunction with other treatment programs to enhance results, shorten healing time, and reduce your pet’s discomfort.

Many conditions readily respond to this non-­invasive therapy, making it an ideal first step in the patient’s treatment program.

Custom Treatment Plans

Our laser treatment program is unique to each pet. The number and frequency of treatments will be determined by your veterinarian based on your pet’s medical condition and needs.

Most treatment sessions take only a matter of minutes.
