Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment designed to reduce pain and inflammation, and to help accelerate the healing process. Laser therapy is performed via a handpiece that emits a therapeutic infrared light in a fast, drug and pain-free treatment that is tolerated well by most pets. There is no clipping or shaving required for the treatment area.
When your pet arrives for therapy they will be situated in a comfortable position and may be fitted with laser-safe goggles. Your practitioner will also provide you with laser-safe eyewear to wear during the treatment session.
During a treatment session, the handheld laser is slowly moved back and forth over the treatment area, producing a warm, pleasant sensation that most pets seem to enjoy and find relaxing. Treatments take approximately 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area and the condition being treated.
Some conditions require several treatment sessions for optimal outcomes. When your pet’s condition is evaluated, our practitioner will discuss your pets treatment recommendations with you. Chronic conditions may be treated weekly, whereas surgical incisions and open wounds may require daily treatment.
