What Is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is an FDA-approved treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the body’s natural healing ability. This typically results in a soothing sensation similar to a massage, which often leaves pets feeling very relaxed. Some even fall asleep during treatment. We apply the laser light using a hand piece, with the light safely penetrating the skin, causing an increase in blood flow and oxygen. This can result in less pain, inflammation, and stiffness, and fewer muscle spasms.
About the Treatment Session
Unlike other treatment options, laser therapy requires no surgery, sedation, or medication. The only requirement is for protective eyewear to be worn for anyone in close proximity to the laser. Most treatment sessions last around 10 minutes, but some may be longer, depending on the condition being treated. We are happy to report that most pets experience immediate pain relief and positive results within minutes of treatment at our hospital.
What Laser Therapy Treats
Over the years, laser therapy has been proven in clinical trials to relieve pain from a variety of conditions in pets. Our K-laser therapy unit is commonly used to treat arthritis, but it can also be used to treat more than a dozen other conditions all over the body, such as:
- Chronic pain
