Low Level Laser Therapy
We are equipped to administer “Cold Laser Therapy” that can provide many benefits to all pets. This revolutionary, drug-free, pain-free, non-invasive treatment can speed healing, decrease pain, reduce inflammation, and make your pet feel better!
Depending on the condition, treatment procedures will last on average 10-15 minutes but, based on the size of the area, depth of penetration needed and condition being treated, times may vary. Most pets will notice a warm, soothing feeling and may experience reduced muscle tention and inflammation, improving range of motion.
Treatments are performed by positioning the laser hand-piece directly above the skin and surrounding the area to produce results quickly. For most acute conditions, 5 to 6 treatments are all that is needed. Chronic conditions take a bit longer and may require 6 to 12 treatments. While these are averages, each animal is unique and healing times varies by animal and condition. For those with life-long conditions, your veterinarian may recommend one or two follow-up treatments each month.
Laser therapy has been in use for over thirty years around the world with almost no side effects reported. The animal can immediately resume normal activity but should avoid over exertion for a few day.
