Laser Therapy for Pets

Laser therapy has many benefits over traditional pain and mobility treatments. Cold laser therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery. Not only does it have fewer side effects and risks, but it is quick and convenient. In fact, most treated pets feel better in 12 to 24 hours after treatment.

The versatility of our cold laser therapy allows a doctor to treat sore muscles and joints, degenerative joint conditions, neurological pain, chronic non-healing wounds as well as anti-inflammatory conditions.

Laser Acupuncture for Pets

Laser acupuncture uses light wave technology to activate the acupuncture and acupressure points in your pets body. Our specially designed system penetrates into the tissue to provide pain relief, decrease tension, and increase flexibility while improving blood flow and increasing lymphatic drainage. Laser acupuncture sessions are non-invasive and relaxing for your pet and help provide optimal health in cases ranging from arthritis and stiffness to post-surgical rehabilitation and other trauma.

Benefits of Laser Therapy

Laser Treatment is beneficial for arthritis, bursitis, bite wounds, decubital ulcers, lick granulomas, acute and chronic joint problems, spondylosis, myositis, tendonitis, burns, degenerative myelopathy, edema, post surgical edema, fibrocartilaginous emboli (FCE), fractures, intervertebral disc disease (VDD), hot spots, hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD) mastitis, pneumonia, post-op laminectomy, sesamoiditis, hip dysplasia and sports medicine iliopsoas.

Our class IV deep tissue laser uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called “photo-bio-modulation.” This response leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed. Laser therapy is a painless and non-invasive treatment that 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. On a cellular level, the infrared laser light increases metabolic activity within the cell, which improves the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health. There are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of laser therapy. Since there is no sedation or patient restraint required, a pet’s experience is usually pleasant and comforting.

Our doctors will formulate a unique plan based on your pet’s diagnosis and needs. Plans vary with the number of treatments and length of each session, and are often coupled with rehabilitation for the best possible outcome.
