Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a drug free, surgery free therapy option providing advanced pain relief for both dogs and cats. The laser treatment, done in our office, can relieve pain, reduce swelling and increase range of motion.

What is Laser Therapy?

Class IV K-Lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. These include increased circulation, decreased swelling, reduction of pain and enhanced tissue repair. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970’s and was cleared by the United Stated Food and Drug Administration in 2002.

Therapeutic Effects

The painless application of laser energy promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is restored.

What to Expect

There is no patient sedation or restraint required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting to them. The laser therapy treatments are cumulative in nature. The length and frequency of treatments varies with your pet’s condition. Even though improvement may be seen after the first visit, most patients require several treatments (3 to 8) for greatest benefit. Most sites require 3-8 minutes per treatment.
