Many pets have a number of problems that need laser treatments. Whether it’s arthritis due to old age, or dead tail disease (limber tail), many pets show a remarkable improvement with their condition after laser surgery and laser treatments. This can diminish, if not eliminate, the need to continually prescribe your pet painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications. If your dog or cat is expressing an unusual level of lethargy or is protective about their hips and other joints, you should schedule a visit with our veterinarian to see if they would benefit from these treatments.
Cold Laser Therapy
A non-invasive holistic treatment.
How does pet laser therapy work?
Laser therapy uses deep penetrating beams of the light to alter cells and the tissue that surrounds them. When the light penetrates the body’s cellular components, it stimulates the targeted cells and promotes healing. Perhaps most importantly, though, laser therapy is entirely painless.
Whether your dog is struggling with post-surgical pain or they’re simply getting older, laser therapy can help them live their very best life. Treatments are relatively quick and can be easily integrated with traditional medical procedures and other holistic practices like acupuncture, reiki, and hydrotherapy.
What conditions can laser therapy treat?
Laser therapy can help treat a number of chronic and acute conditions in dogs including:
- Arthritis and inflammation
- Lacerations and burns
- Hip dysplasia and osteoarthritis
- Skin conditions and infections
- Fractures, sprains, and strains
- Gingivitis and tooth extraction pain
- Wound healing and post-surgical pain relief
