What Does Pet Laser Therapy Do?
Our therapeutic laser is a handheld device that emits different frequencies of laser light. The concentrated light penetrates deep into your pet’s tissue and causes physiological changes on the cellular level.
These physiological changes include:
- Increased blood circulation which reduces inflammation
- Release of endorphins which provide pain relief
- Increased cell productivity which speeds healing
What Happens at a Laser Therapy Session?
Cold laser therapy for dogs and cats is a non-invasive procedure, and many pets will happily accept the treatment with no need for sedatives. Our trained technicians begin by making sure your pet is as comfortable as possible. We’ll adjust the laser to the correct frequency, and then hold the device over your pet’s problem area.
How Long Does a Session Last?
The length of time for each session will vary based on your pet’s condition, but sessions usually range from about 10 – 30 minutes. For acute conditions, one session is generally enough to offer your pet relief and speed the healing process. However, for more chronic conditions, your pet may need 2-3 sessions per week until we see improvements. Since the benefits of laser therapy are cumulative, we’ll be able to reduce the number of sessions to once a week, once every two weeks, and so on.
