Laser Therapy for Pets
Laser therapy is a modern form of treatment used in veterinary medicine. The procedure is pain-free, drug-free and non-invasive, which makes it a great option for healing while on medications. Laser therapy has been proven to reduce pain, inflammation, swelling and stimulate tissue repair. Most pets experience improvements after their first session. At our clinic, we use advanced technology to perform laser therapy on your loyal companion.
How does laser therapy work?
Laser therapy promotes healing from within. Lights are directed at different parts of the pet’s body at different wavelengths. These lights are absorbed by cells which stimulate growth and repair. The higher the wavelength, the deeper the beams are able to penetrate.
During the session, pets become relaxed and enjoy the treatment. It brings almost immediate pain relief and comfort. Each session may last from 15-30 minutes. Your veterinarian will determine how many sessions your pet needs. If you have more questions about laser therapy, reach out to us at 519.641.8383.
