Laser therapy is a safe, drug free, noninvasive treatment that is highly effective in treating pain in both acute and chronic conditions. It uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissues without damaging them. The procedure induces a biological response in the animal’s cells which reduces the level of pain and inflammation, leading to faster healing. Most treatments only take a few minutes, and the process does not require sedation or drugs.
Treatments are a safe and relaxing experience for pets. During the procedure, the warmth of the laser provides pain relief and comfort, and many pets become so relaxed they even fall asleep!
Laser therapy has been successful in treating acute conditions such as wounds, allergies, and post-surgical pain relief. Degenerative joint disease, spinal disease, and hip dysplasia are some of the chronic conditions that see improvement when treated with therapeutic laser.
Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition. Treatments vary in time, complexity and costs. Generally, most pets experience an improvement in their condition within the first few treatments. Laser therapy can also be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by our veterinarians.
