Slide What Conditions Can Laser Therapy Help? What Is Pet Laser Therapy? Laser therapy for dogs and cats is useful for many different conditions. Some of the most common include:
  • Treatment of degenerative joint disease
  • Reduce discomfort and increase mobility
  • Improves nerve function
  • Accelerates tissue repair and wound healing
  • Heal chronic skin conditions
  • Decreasing inflammation
  • Relieves pain
  • Improves pet’s quality of life
Laser therapy involves the use of a low frequency of laser light to promote biological changes in the deep layers of the skin, encouraging healing. The device includes both a mechanism to produce and control the frequency of the laser light and a hand-held wand, which is used to pass over the surface of the body. The low frequency of the laser produces a reaction called “photobiomodulation,” which releases healing and pain-relieving chemicals in tissues. This reaction can help animals that are experiencing a variety of health issues.

Many animals find the process very relaxing and will sleep during the procedure. Your pet will lie down on a table or a blanket on the floor for the laser treatment. A hand-held device is passed over the surface of the skin for several minutes. The animal does not feel any pain or discomfort. In addition, there are no side effects from laser therapy. Usually, several sessions are recommended to provide maximum benefit.
