Laser therapy helps your pet feel better.
We think you should have as many alternatives as possible for caring for your beloved companion. We’re delighted to provide laser therapy as part of our comprehensive range of services. The laser treatment applies painless, thermic light waves to regions of the body that are painful or have experienced trauma. The brain releases endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers. The endorphin pathway is triggered when you do something enjoyable. As a result, your loved one will feel less pain, be more mobile and have shorter rehabilitation periods.
What is veterinary laser therapy?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless treatment that activates the body’s natural healing and pain management mechanisms. It may be utilized as a standalone therapy or as an addition to other therapies. The doctor applies a low-level laser to the region in question, which stimulates normal cellular function, resulting in faster wound healing and enhanced pain relief. Furthermore, because laser therapy has no medication or surgery requirements, there are no harmful side effects.

How many sessions will my pet need?
Every pet is unique; therefore, the response to laser therapy will be as well. Treatment approaches vary based on your companion’s condition and a variety of other criteria. Positive effects may be seen after just one treatment for some patients. Others might require a more long-term approach to achieve their goals. Once we’ve had the chance to assess your animal buddy’s situation, we’ll provide you with an individual therapy suggestion.
