How Does It Work?
Our laser therapy machine emits concentrated light energy from a hand-held device wielded by our trained technicians. They hold the device over your pet’s affected area for a predetermined period of time. The light waves permeate deep into the tissue where they energize healthy cells. With a renewed energy, these cells go to work repairing damaged tissue, increasing blood circulation, and reducing pain by triggering the body’s natural painkillers.
What Conditions Can It Treat?
We recommend pet laser therapy for many different conditions including:
- Post-surgical recovery
- Wound healing
- Intervertebral disc disease
- Joint or deep tissue injuries
- Hot spots
- Lick granulomas
- Skin Infections
- And more
Laser therapy is particularly useful for pets with certain conditions that make them unable to take traditional pain medications. With laser therapy, there are no risks for side-effects, so it can be used safely.
