Laser Therapy for Pets

Effective and safe treatment used to reduce pain or inflammation in cats and dogs.

Laser therapy is a healing treatment that is used in veterinary medicine. It can be used to treat a number of health issues but is especially used for pain, inflammation and wound healing. Laser therapy is a great treatment option because it is drug-free, non-invasive and can be used in conjunction with other treatments.

How does laser therapy work?

This treatment uses light energy to penetrate deep tissues inside the body. We use a handheld device which emits light energy at different frequencies allowing it to reach below the skin. It is a non-invasive procedure that will stimulate cell regeneration which in turn speeds up recovery and increases blood circulation. Laser therapy is often recommended to reduce pain and inflammation, increase joint flexibility and for faster recovery from wounds/injuries.
