Laser Therapy

Drug Free. Surgery Free. Pain Relief for Your Pet.

The miracles of modern technology – What is Laser Therapy?

Our class IV Companion therapy laser is the most powerful currently available for veterinary use. It uses a non-invasive, painless beam of laser light to penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy produces a response in cells called “photo-biomodulation”, and leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed. It is very safe.

How It’s Done….

We use a painless hand piece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth but no sedation or shaving is required. Most treatments take a matter of minutes. Treatments can be done as a single treatment or in a series of treatments depending on the condition.

Alone or together….
Laser therapy can be used alone or along with other therapies, often reducing the need for drugs. It offers significant results in most cases, helping to restore mobility & function.

What are the Costs?

Cost varies with the number of treatments needed for a particular condition. Some conditions are managed with a single treatment while others may require a longer series of treatments over time. We have packages which help to make longer term protocols cost effective. Ask us for an estimate for laser therapy for your pet.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Results vary depending on the condition but in some cases improvement can be seen within 24 hours. In more chronic cases, results may take longer. Some animals may act relaxed after therapy and some with chronic arthritis may have increased activity at first which might make them seem a bit sore for a day or two.
