Pain Relief for Dogs and Cats with Laser Therapy
Is your pet experiencing pain from arthritis or any other debilitating condition? If so, Animal Medical Center of Chandler can provide pain relief for dogs and cats with laser therapy. Because we’re an AAHA-accredited animal hospital, you can be confident in the high level of service that your pet receives while in our care. This applies to our K-Laser therapy service as well. With laser therapy, our goal is to treat pets’ discomfort as effectively and efficiently as possible, so they can return to a healthy, pain-free life.
What Is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is an FDA-approved treatment modality that uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the body’s natural healing ability. This typically results in a soothing sensation comparable to a massage, which often leaves pets feeling very relaxed. Some even fall asleep during treatment. The laser light is applied using a hand piece, which safely penetrates the skin, causing an increase in blood flow and oxygen. As a result, pets can experience a reduction in pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, and stiffness.
About the Treatment Session
Unlike other treatment options, laser therapy requires no surgery, sedation, or medication of any kind. 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
- Otitis (ears)
- Feline asthma
- Hip dysplasia
- Lick granulomas
