What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is an advanced method of alternative medicine that applies a cold laser light to a particular area(s) of concern with a patient. Laser therapy involves the use of laser light which then penetrates deep down into the animal’s tissue. Various chemical reactions occur on a cellular level which promotes healing, inhibits inflammatory responses, and also acts as a powerful analgesic.
 
What is laser therapy used for?
 
Laser is beneficial for treating both acute and chronic inflammatory processes in the body. Laser is often utilized for many various injuries or conditions including, but not limited to, post-surgical procedures on incision sites, ear infections and even osteoarthritis. The most successful beneficiaries of laser treatment are candidates who are able to comply with treatment requirements and those who may not tolerate oral medications as well. Laser therapy, if administered appropriately, can be a wonderful tool to help our furry companions.
 
Laser Therapy can be used to treat many conditions including: 

Acute Conditions:

What to expect:
 
Laser is a treatment that must be accumulative to be fully appreciated. This means that multiple sessions should be done in the first few weeks, with gradually increasing the time between each session. Laser treatment varies in time length but is a fairly quick and non-invasive procedure. Most pets generally tolerate laser and enjoy coming back for repeated sessions!
