What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold laser therapy uses a low-intensity laser or LEDs (light emitting diodes) to help relieve your pet's pain and enhance their cell function and improve healing.

Our vets are passionate about providing the highest quality treatment for your pet and cold laser therapy provides a safe, non-invasive, effective way of alleviating pain and encouraging your pet's return to their normal, healthy selves. 

A wide variety of conditions have been shown to improve with the use of laser therapy including muscle spasms, arthritis symptoms and joint pain.

The Cold Laser Therapy Treatment Process

Cold laser therapy involves treating your pet by moving a handheld laser wand back and forth over the affected part of your pet's body, whether that be from an injury or some other health issue.

Your pet will feel a pleasant and warm sensation in the area being treated and will probably find it enjoyable and relaxing. Cold laser therapy sessions generally last around twenty minutes. The number and frequency of these treatments will depend on your pet's specific healthcare needs. 

Uses for Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy has a wide range of uses and is highly effective when used in conjunction with traditional medications and other veterinary treatments. 

Laser therapy encourages cell regeneration and increases circulation, benefiting the following conditions and procedures:

  • Wounds
  • Strains & Sprains
  • Bone Fractures
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Post-Surgical Recovery
  • Inflammation
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Lick Granuloma
  • Dental Procedures

Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy

Therapeutic laser treatments offer a wide variety of benefits to your pet. When your companion receives a low-intensity laser treatment, the specific wavelength of the light prompts the alteration of the physiology of their cells and tissues. 

  • Reduces edema (swelling)
  • Increases wound healing
  • Accelerates mitochondrial cell metabolism
  • Reduces inflammation and associated pain
  • Enhances neovascularization
  • Increases blood perfusion
  • Encourages bone healing
