What is laser therapy?

The therapeutic laser is a small, handheld device that emits a high intensity beam of light. This light – or laser – targets specific areas of the body, both internal and external, that have experienced injury or trauma, triggering the body’s natural healing mechanism. Laser therapy is painless, non-invasive and drug-free, yet it has been proven to be highly effective in reducing pain and inflammation, improving mobility and speeding the healing process following injury or surgery.

What can laser therapy be used to treat?

The therapeutic laser can be used to manage a wide variety of ailments and injuries in pets, including but not limited to:

  • Acute and chronic pain
  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Sprains/strains
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Dermatological conditions
  • Lick granulomas
  • Geriatric care
  • Wounds
  • Cuts or Bites
  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Dental conditions
  • Fractures
  • Post-surgical healing and pain

How many treatments will my pet need?

While the results of laser therapy can often be seen after just one treatment, the number and frequency of sessions your pet will need to achieve optimum results will depend on a number of unique factors. Once the doctor has had the opportunity to examine your pet and evaluate his or her specific needs, you will receive a personalized treatment recommendation.

If your pet is experiencing pain, recently underwent surgery or sustained an injury, or just seems to be having difficulty getting around, laser therapy may be just what he or she needs to live a happier, more comfortable life. Give us a call today to learn more!
