At Southglen Veterinary Hospital, we are always in search of the best and most advanced technologies to provide superior care for your pets. This is especially true any time that your pets may be feeling pain or discomfort. Through the use of low-light laser therapy, we can provide your pets with a non-invasive, pain-free and prescription drug-free treatment method that can be used for a variety of different conditions. Safe and effective, pet laser therapy can also be used in conjunction with existing treatment methods to help promote faster healing.
Pet laser therapy works by transmitting deep-penetrating light into the soft tissues of the body to encourage a chain of natural chemical reactions. This process is known as photobiostimulation and is safe to use on pets of all ages. Through this process, the body is encouraged to release endorphins, which quickly act to relieve pain and stimulate injured cells throughout the targeted treatment area, promoting faster healing.
Typically, most treatment sites require anywhere from 3 to 8 minutes with the laser. While most pets see improvement after their first laser therapy appointment, the severity of their condition will determine how often laser treatment will be necessary. Additional benefits of laser therapy include rapid cell regeneration, increased blood circulation and reduced inflammation.
Pet laser therapy is so safe and effective that we can use it to treat a wide range of common veterinary health concerns, including:
Many of our laser therapy patients suffer from common musculoskeletal conditions like chronic back pain, and disc disorders. If you notice that your pet seems to be in pain or uncomfortable when completing everyday tasks like grooming, getting up and down stairs or lying down properly —it may be time for a checkup.
One of the greatest benefits of this advanced treatment option is the fact that pets will experience little to no side effects. Because we use low-light or “cold” lasers, your pet will not feel any heat or pain from the treatment. And no recovery time means that they can go about their regular business immediately after their appointment.
