All about laser therapy
We are proud to offer our patients laser therapy, also referred to as cold laser or therapeutic laser. Laser therapy is the use of a cold laser that works to stimulate blood circulation and cell regeneration at the targeted areas it is used on. This stimulation of circulation and cell production helps to promote faster healing times for our sweet patients. Laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, and is most often used after surgical procedures to allow your pet to recover as quickly as possible.
Why we use laser therapy
The great thing about laser therapy is that it can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions. Laser therapy does not have any known side effects and is considered safe for use on pets and humans too! Some conditions that are benefited by laser therapy are:
- Post dental extraction
- Post surgery
- Muscle weakness or pain
- Disc disease
- Soft tissue injuries
- Hot spots
- Skeletal injury
When should laser therapy be used?
Anytime! Laser therapy is excellent when used along or in conjunction with other treatments including rehabilitation, chiropractic, and acupuncture, along with more traditional treatments for pain such as medication. We recommend laser therapy after the majority of surgical procedures and for the treatment of pain.
We offer packages and single-session treatments of laser therapy. This incredible treatment can also be added on to other appointments. If you have questions or would like to schedule your pet for a laser therapy session, please contact our client care team!
