Pet Laser Therapy
Pet Laser Therapy has been scientifically and FDA-cleared to be effective in treating post-surgical pain and many chronic and acute conditions. It is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and speed healing for your pet.
Class IV deep tissue pet laser treatment uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. The laser energy generates a biological response in the cells called “photo-bio-modulation”, which leads to reducing the pain and inflammation in pets as well as decreasing tissue chemicals that stimulate pain. Pet laser treatment also enhances healing by increasing blood flow through the smaller blood vessels, increases growth factors, and stimulates cellular activity.

How Pet Laser Therapy Works?
The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive hand-piece that treats the affected area and your pet will begin to feel a calm and comforting warmth. Many pets relax as the laser is administered, much like you would when undergoing a good massage. The relief of pain is almost immediate which allows your furry friend to be free from anxiety and feel more relaxed.
Treatments to deeper tissues are administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Typically, even chronic pet patients show improvement after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Pet Laser therapy utilizes the body’s healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Despite short treatment times, laser therapy continues to reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment.
How often will my pet need Pet Laser Therapy and how many treatments can I expect?
Most pets receiving pet laser therapy are treated two to five times per week for several weeks. Acute issues are commonly treated more frequently but over a shorter timeframe, while chronic conditions tend to be treated less frequently but, for a longer time period.
