Is laser therapy right for your pet?
Dear Pet Owner,
We care about your pet and strive to bring you the best—yet affordable—technology. We are so excited to now offer cold laser therapy! Therapeutic cold laser treatments are painless and help our furry family members with various conditions.
Laser is an acronym for light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation. Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating illnesses. In short, laser therapy is a safe, non-invasive procedure that offers anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits with no side effects.
DOES THE TREATMENT HURT?
Laser therapy does not hurt, and most patients actually enjoy their treatment sessions. The only sensation that is felt is slight warmth as the laser goes over the skin.
THE BENEFITS OF LASER THERAPY INCLUDE:
• Reduction of inflammation
• Reduction of pain
• Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth
• Increased metabolic activity
• Improved nerve function
• Faster wound healing
• Reduction of fibrous tissue formation from cuts, burns, etc.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Laser therapy is a type of medical treatment that uses light to help the body heal itself. When cell function is impaired by injury or illness, laser light therapy can help to restore normal activity in cells and promote healing and reduce pain. A single treatment session takes 1-10 minutes based on therapeutic goals and no sedation is required.
IS IT RIGHT FOR YOUR PET?
Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds or surgery, or simply aging, this pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment can greatly improve your pet's quality of life.
