How Does Pet Laser Therapy Work?

Laser therapy is a safe, non-invasive, and drug-free procedure that works to reduce inflammation and pain, and accelerate cell growth and tissue repair. Treatment can also reduce the formation of scar tissue, improve circulation, and help the immune system fight off infection in the event of a traumatic injury.

During laser therapy treatment, the area in need of healing is exposed to concentrated, low-level infrared light. The light energy penetrates through soft tissues and deep into the muscle tissue to stimulate cellular energy and cell repair.

Laser therapy can be used to relieve and treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Soft-tissue and orthopedic surgery (post-operative pain management)
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Degenerative disc/degenerative joint disease
  • Back pain
  • Hot spots
  • Muscle spasms
  • Lick granulomas
  • Open wounds
  • Ear infections

What to Expect for Your Pet’s Laser Therapy Session

All pets react differently to treatment, so the success of your pet’s laser therapy treatment may vary. While some pets respond well after their initial session, others may need to undergo multiple sessions to see significant results. Your pet should complete the number of sessions recommended by your veterinarian to prevent pain and other symptoms from reoccurring. Rest assured, your dog or cat will not experience any discomfort during this procedure. They may even find the warmth of the laser light relaxing. For safety purposes, everyone present for treatment, including your pet, must wear protective goggles.
