What is Laser Therapy for Pets

Cold laser or low level laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses infrared light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. 

What Is Laser Therapy Used For?

Berea KY pet laser therapy can treat acute and chronic injuries, sprains, strains, arthritis, swelling around disc problems and muscular and skeletal abnormalities.  It also is used after surgery and for wound healing.

Is Laser Therapy Safe

Laser therapy is non-invasive, requires no sedation or shaving of the skin.  It doesn’t burn and is completely safe with no side effects.  Unlike hot laser therapy, it doesn’t affect deep tissue, but treats the surface of the skin.  Most pets that receive laser therapy enjoy the treatment and it makes them feel good.  Because it is safe and requires no sedation, it can be administered 3 times a day if necessary and beneficial.

How Long Does Laser Therapy Last

Once it is determined your pet will benefit from laser therapy, a schedule will be set up.  Usually your pet will be seen 2-3 times a week and then taper off depending on how they are responding and the benefits you see.  Sometimes booster appointments are necessary to maintain the benefits.  The sessions themselves can last anywhere from 10 to 20 min at each site.

Is Pet Laser Therapy in Berea KY Right For Your Pet?

If your pet is suffering from limited mobility or pain, you can ask about pet laser therapy at your next appointment or call to schedule an appointment.  Your veterinarian will do a full physical exam, which may include X-Rays.  Once a diagnosis is made, your veterinarian can determine if laser therapy is an option.  The diagnosis will also determine how often your pet will need laser therapy and the course of treatment.
