Cold Laser Therapy

Veterinary cold laser therapy uses a low-intensity laser or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help stimulate and enhance cell function, relieve pain and improve healing in cats and dogs. 

Many uncomfortable conditions have been shown to improve with the use of laser therapy including arthritis symptoms, muscle spasms and joint or muscle pain. 

If your pet has sustained an injury, undergone orthopedic surgery or suffers from a painful condition, they may be a candidate for this pain-free, sugar-free and drug-free treatment.

How Laser Treatments Work at Our Vet Hospital

To perform your pet's laser therapy treatment, the vet will slowly move the laser wand back and forth over your pet's painful or injured area, producing a warm, pleasant sensation that most cats and dogs seem to enjoy and find relaxing. 

Veterinary cold laser treatment sessions usually last 15 to 30 minutes each. The number of sessions recommended for your dog or cat will depend upon the type and severity of your pet's condition. Most vets recommend that chronic conditions be treated weekly, whereas surgical incisions and open wounds may benefit from daily treatments.
