Therapeutic laser treatments are one of the many rehabilitation services available to our patients. Laser treatments are a safe and non-invasive way to stimulate your pet’s recovery. The laser’s light penetrates your pet’s skin and tissues, naturally speeding up your pet’s healing process.
How can laser therapy alleviate my pet’s pain?
Laser therapy can be helpful for various conditions, from post-operative recovery to chronic health issues. Our team will evaluate your pet to determine if the treatment is the right fit for them. Some conditions it can treat include arthritis, surgical incisions, and injuries (both acute and chronic). The laser helps:
- Increase blood flow
- Reduce inflammation
- Relieve pain in injured bones, muscles, and tendons
- Provide long-term pain management
Is the treatment painful?
The treatment is painless, and many pets find it relaxing. The laser includes a handheld device that we slowly run along the targeted area of your pet’s body. The light comes out in small bursts, so we can monitor your pet’s response to treatment and make adjustments if necessary. We’ll determine the number of treatments your pet needs based on their condition. For example, if your pet has a chronic condition like arthritis, they could require more long-term treatments for the results to take their full effect. You could start to notice your pet having an easier time moving around or climbing stairs after consistent treatments. If you have questions about laser therapy, please contact us at 613-258-5745.
