What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, non-invasive treatment that can help:

  • Reduce pain
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Speed Healing

Our Class IV Deep Tissue Laser uses a beam of laser light to penetrate tissue without damaging it. The energy from the laser beam causes a response in the tissue called “photo-bio-modulation”. This response leads to the reduced pain, inflammation and the increased healing speed.

Does Laser Therapy Hurt?

Absolutely not! The laser therapy treatment is done with a hand-held device that may cause a slight warming sensation in the area it is treating. Many animals actually relax during their treatment because it feels so good.

What Can Laser Therapy Be Used For?

We can use laser therapy in any condition that causes pain and inflammation or where we want healing to occur more quickly. Examples include:

  • Wounds
  • Allergic skin reactions
  • Infections
  • Cuts or Bites
  • Inflammations
  • After we have extracted teeth
  • Post-surgical incisions
  • Sprains, strains and broken bones
  • Arthritis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Periodontal disease
  • Lick Granulomas
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Feline Acne
  • Ear infections
  • And so much more!

As you can see, laser therapy can be used to help so many patients feel less pain and heal faster than they normally would from surgeries or injuries.
