Therapeutic Laser is a non-invasive, drug free, surgery free, and pain free treatment. Also referred to as cold laser, therapeutic laser uses beams of light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. Following treatment, pets experience less pain and swelling of the affected area, allowing for an increase in range of motion, mobility, and healing. Subsequent laser therapy sessions increase these benefits for your pet if used in rapid succession initially.
Therapeutic laser can be used for many ailments in both dogs and cats. Treatment is ideal for pets that have:
• Muscle, joint, tendon or ligament injuries
• Back pain
• Post-operative incisions or traumatic wounds
• Nerve damage
What Can I Expect with Therapeutic Laser?
Once your veterinarian has recommended Therapeutic Laser for your pet, treatment may be performed by your veterinarian or a veterinary technician. The laser is applied directly to the surface of the skin or held directly above in cases where the pet may experience pain from direct contact. Treatments should be a few times a week at first, and then gradually tapering off once relief is seen. Each session typically lasts about 20 minutes and owners are encouraged to stay with their pet to decrease anxiety and maximize comfort during treatment. There are currently no known side effects of Therapeutic Laser treatments.
