If your pet suffers from arthritis or any kind of pain, pet laser therapy can help ease their discomfort. With laser therapy, your pet can receive fast treatment and pain relief without drugs or invasive procedures.
Laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of symptoms including:
• Arthritis pain
• Inflammatory conditions
• Muscular skeletal conditions
• Degenerative joint disease
• Post-operative and wound healing
• Intervertebral disc disease
• Ear infections
• Lick granulomas
How Does Pet Laser Therapy Work?
The laser emits light energy (photons) into the tissues, which causes chemical changes to the cells. Those chemical changes cause energy production and stimulation of the cellular tissue, resulting in increased blood flow to areas of injury, increased lymphatic drainage and ultimately decreased inflammation and pain.
What Happens During Pet Laser Therapy?
Laser treatment is administered through a non-invasive handheld device. Treatment times are typically less than 5 minutes. There is no clipping of fur, no painful manipulations and no known side effects of treatment. Our veterinarians and vet staff and your pet will wear protective eyewear during treatments.
