At The Veterinary Clinic, your pets are part of our family too. We believe they deserve every possible chance at health and happiness, especially if they’re living with pain or mobility problems. That’s why our vets stay up-to-date on the latest advances in diagnosis, treatment, and pain therapy for pets, including an innovative therapeutic technique called cold laser therapy. If your dog or cat is experiencing pain, inflammation, or slow healing of any kind, they may be a good candidate for this therapeutic technique.
Also known as low-level laser therapy, cold laser therapy is a non-invasive way to harness the healing power of laser light. At low levels, laser light provides just enough stimulating energy to increase blood flow, encourage the production of pain-killing chemicals, and promote the creation of new tissue cells.
So, what does that mean for your pet? During a pet cold laser therapy session, your dog or cat’s laser therapy technician will use a handheld device to send light rays directly into the affected body part. For example, when a dog receives cold laser therapy for knee pain, the laser wand is held directly over their knee. Sessions may last anywhere from three to ten minutes, depending on your pet’s unique treatment needs.
Pets of all ages and backgrounds benefit from cold laser therapy because this all-natural therapy option provides relief from many different symptoms and conditions. At The Veterinary Clinic, we use pet cold laser therapy to provide some of the following benefits for our feline and canine patients:
Of course, these benefits can be applied to many different injuries, conditions, and causes of chronic or acute pain. If your pet’s in pain for any reason, we recommend a consultation with our laser therapy vet. Here are some of the most common conditions that our veterinary team uses cold laser therapy to treat:
