We’ll be there when you need us.
Pet Laser Therapy
If your pet experiences a soft tissue injury, chronic pain, or a wound that needs some more help healing, our doctors may add Laser Therapy to your pet’s treatment plan. Therapeutic laser is the application of light energy to areas of the body to stimulate and accelerate healing. Therapeutic laser reduces pain by decreasing inflammation, as well as by decreasing tissue chemicals that stimulate pain and by affecting nerve conduction.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
The light from the laser is absorbed by specific elements within each cell (the mitochondria); in turn, each cell begins to produce more energy or fuel (ATP). This increase in production then promotes quicker healing and an improved reduction in local inflammation.
How Long is Treatment?
Treatment will vary per patient and is entirely dependent on the complexity or severity of the underlying condition(s).
What to Expect
During each treatment, both the technician and the pet will be wearing eye protection. There may be some warmth at the treated site, and each ‘dose’ lasts between 1 and 10 minutes, pending the size of the pet and the sites being worked on. You may see an increase in activity or marked relaxation at home as pain and inflammation are reduced. Results will vary per patient, with some experiencing relief after 1 session and others requiring more pending the complexity and severity of the condition.
