How Laser Therapy Works

Laser therapy utilizes light energy to stimulate blood flow and increase circulation, promoting tissue healing and reducing inflammation. Unlike surgical lasers, cold laser therapy delivers different wavelengths of light to target specific areas without cutting tissue. This innovative technique may even be used in conjunction with acupuncture, providing pain relief without the need for needles.

Customized Treatment Plans

Our veterinarians will assess your pet’s pain management needs and create a customized treatment plan tailored to their individual condition. While laser therapy is generally safe and effective for most pets, it may not be recommended for those with certain conditions, such as cancer. Treatment plans typically consist of eight to ten sessions, with sessions scheduled two to three times weekly initially, tapering down to weekly appointments as needed.

Comfortable Treatment Sessions

During laser therapy sessions, pets can relax on a comfortable surface while the laser is applied to the affected areas. Treatment durations vary depending on the size of the pet and the severity of their condition, ranging from 8 to 30 minutes per session. Pet owners may be present during treatment sessions, provided they wear special goggles to protect their eyes from the laser light.

Benefits of Laser Therapy

Laser therapy offers numerous benefits beyond pain management for pets. In addition to relieving arthritis pain, it can aid in wound healing, treat skin disorders like lick granulomas, and promote faster recovery from surgical incisions. Pets undergoing orthopedic surgery may experience accelerated healing and reduced postoperative pain with the help of laser therapy.
