Laser Therapy for Pets
In recent years, laser therapy has become one of the mainstays of treatments that are available for dogs, cats and other pets. It can be used to treat different types of conditions and as part of a system of rehabilitation therapies, in combination with other treatments. Laser therapy is an excellent treatment option that is both pharmaceutical- and surgery-free, with virtually no downtime.
How is laser therapy used in dogs/cats/pets?
Most commonly, laser therapy is used as part of a pet’s rehabilitation or recovery care from an injury or surgical procedure. For example, if your pet experiences a knee injury and then undergoes a surgical procedure in order to correct the damage that has been caused, laser therapy may be prescribed to help them through their recovery stage. Laser therapy can also reduce pain and inflammation in pets who are diagnosed with arthritis and dermatitis. Laser, along with massages and physical therapy, can encourage healing, muscle mass rebuilding and flexibility in the affected areas.
Is laser therapy safe for pets?
Yes. Laser therapy is a 100% pain-free and non-invasive treatment option. We provide protective gear such as eye goggles to ensure your pet’s safety and comfort. Typically, your pet will lie down on a comfortable pad/bed and the duration of the treatment depends on the size of the affected area.
How much does laser therapy cost?
The exact price of your pet’s laser therapy will depend on several factors such as the length of their treatment and whether it is administered in conjunction with other therapies.
