Pet Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy is a non-invasive therapeutic option that uses light to reach target tissue and has the potential to provide quick results.

Why is pet laser therapy?

Laser Therapy can be used to aid healing in a range of illnesses, including muscular pain, osteoarthritis, postoperative pain from incisions and wounds, and most musculoskeletal pain situations. Laser Therapy affects tissue molecules that cause pain, inflammation, and nerve conduction while also increasing microcirculation, cellular activity, and growth factors. As a result, healing and tissue function is improved, and discomfort is reduced.

How does laser therapy work?

The laser’s light is absorbed by certain elements (mitochondria) within each cell, causing each cell to produce additional energy or fuel (ATP). As a result of the increase in production, faster healing and a reduction in local inflammation occur.

What to expect

Both the technician and the pet will be wearing eye protection throughout each treatment. The treated spot may feel warm, and each ‘dosage’ lasts between 1 and 10 minutes, depending on the size of the pet and the sites being worked on. As pain and inflammation are reduced, you may notice an increase in activity or considerable relaxation at home. Depending on the intricacy and severity of the problem, some patients may see relief after just one session, while others may require more.
