What is laser therapy?
Class IV laser therapy uses a beam of laser light to penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy has been used for decades in human physical therapy, as it induces a biological response in the cells called “photo-bio-modulation,” leading to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and faster healing.
The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive hand piece, so is not a stressful experience to most patients. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth to the treated area but it does not cause any discomfort. Most sessions take only a matter of minutes with the pet resting on your lap or on a soft bed.
This therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain, as well as a broad range of acute or chronic issues, including:
Acute Conditions Chronic Conditions
Wounds Degenerative Joint Disease
Allergies Arthritis and Geriatric Care
Infections Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Cuts/bites Periodontal Disease
Inflammation/swelling Lick Granulomas
Tooth extraction pain relief Hip Dysplasia
Sprains/strains & fractures Feline Acne
Post-surgical healing & pain relief…and more. Otitis (ear infection)… and more.
Treatment protocols will be unique to each patient and condition, therefore treatments may vary in time, complexity, and cost depending on the needs of your pet. Laser therapy can be used on its own, or to enhance other treatment plans recommended by our doctors.
