Here's what to know about pet laser therapy at our animal hospital.

What Is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is cleared by the FDA as a treatment option for both humans and pets. This therapy is designed to reduce inflammation in your pet's body, which leads to a reduction in pain, as well. It works well for the pain a pet may feel after an operation or other procedure. But that's not the only way it can be used. Laser therapy is also an effective option for treating chronic pain or acute pain experienced after an accident or other injury. The entire goal of laser therapy is to help your pet feel better faster.

What Are the Benefits?

There are a lot of benefits to laser therapy when it comes to helping your pet feel better and be healthier. Some of the biggest and most important benefits of this treatment include:

  • Well-tolerated by the majority of animals it's approved for
  • Doesn't have any known side effects to worry about
  • Provides strong relief for swelling, pain, and inflammation
  • Doesn't require your pet to be sedated
  • Very versatile and can be used for treating osteoarthritis and a number of other health conditions
  • Works for dermatological conditions, as well as for post-operative pain and chronic otitis

Is Laser Therapy Safe?

Laser therapy is completely safe and effective for the majority of pets. If your pet is a good candidate for laser therapy, our vets will work with you to plan out the number of treatment sessions your pet needs. Typically, most pets with chronic conditions need between three and six treatments to see a noticeable difference. For pets with acute pain the number of treatment sessions may be different. It's often based on what is specifically causing the pain. Some conditions take longer to treat than others will.
