Slide Addressing Pain Pain can be difficult to live with, especially if it limits basic functions and leaves your pet in a state of constant discomfort. What’s more, they will likely try to carry on as normal, regardless of their pain. This can lead to further problems that become harder to treat, and may even shorten your pet’s life. Laser Therapy is a drug-free pain control modality that can significantly reduce your pet's pain and reverse these issues. The treatment uses light energy to heal damaged tissues and reduce inflammation. We have invested in this technology because we believe your pet deserves a pain-free life.

Slide Is My Pet a Candidate for Laser Therapy? There are no side effects associated with laser therapy, and it will not interfere with your pet’s medication (if they are currently taking medication). In addition, we consider laser therapy to be an ideal treatment for using in conjunction with other treatments to boost your pet’s pain relief and/or improve healing.

The following conditions can be treated with laser therapy:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Sprains, strains, and fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Lick granulomas
  • Post-surgical pain (especially for orthopedic procedures)
  • Infections
  • Dental disease
  • Tendonitis
  • …and more
Laser therapy is not available for pets with cancer or potentially cancerous growths. These problems can actually be worsened by exposure to the infrared laser light.

How long does treatment take?

Your pet’s laser therapy treatment is determined by several factors, including:

  • Whether their condition is acute or chronic
  • The severity of the condition
  • How well they respond to treatment
  • Their size, age, species, and skin and coat coloration

An individual treatment can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. For chronic issues, we generally need to see pets over the course of several weeks or even months to properly treat their condition. Acute conditions can often be improved with just one treatment!
