Cold Laser Therapy

VCA Desert Inn Animal Hospital’s commitment to providing state-of-the-art technology motivated us to provide laser therapy options for our clients. Our K-Laser is used to accelerate healing in pets that have been injured, are fighting infection, or are recovering from surgery.

How does laser therapy work?

Laser therapy works by using specific wavelengths of light on the affected tissue, which then encourages the body’s cells to divide quicker. The treatments result in increased oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area, which provides the perfect healing environment.

What are the benefits of using laser therapy?

The benefits of laser therapy are well documented in scientific studies and the therapy has been used in human medicine for many years, especially in the treatment of sports-related injuries. Some of the benefits of treatment in the veterinary field include:

  • Increased circulation
  • Release of endorphins - the body’s own natural pain killers
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Relief from muscle spasms
  • Increased mobility
  • Shorter healing time

What pet conditions benefit from laser therapy?

There are thousands of published studies documenting the effectiveness of laser therapy for many clinical conditions. Some of the conditions that VCA Desert Inn Animal Hospital uses laser therapy to treat include:

  • Pet arthritis
  • Tendon diseases
  • Sprains
  • Puncture wounds
  • Post-traumatic injury
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Neck and back pain
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Burn treatment
  • Chronic wounds
  • Post-orthopedic surgical recovery

K-laser treatments take very little time, are completely painless and non-invasive, and produce excellent results. For pets needing multiple treatments, we offer packages for reduced rates—contact VCA Desert Inn Animal Hospital for more pricing or general information.
