Laser Therapy for Cats and Dogs
Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free and pain-free way to relieve pain in cats and dogs. This new technology helps your best friend get relief from everyday aches and pains and to recover from trauma. Cats and dogs benefit from laser therapy with reduced pain and inflammation and have increased mobility and range of motion. It’s a therapy used to treat multiple injuries and ailments in cats and dogs, including arthritis, muscle sprains, fractures, joint injuries, wounds and nerve injury.
It’s not uncommon for cats or dogs to develop arthritis as they age. Arthritic pain is often experienced in the hips, knee joints, backbone and shoulder. Symptoms often include limping, abnormal gait, stiffness, pain when handled, withdrawal and licking the painful joint. Laser therapy can help your pet live more comfortably when suffering from arthritis.
The cold laser in laser therapy utilizes a concentrated beam of light to stimulate damaged cells to generate more energy. It works on a cellular level to increase cellular function. The increased cellular activity helps alleviate chronic pain, reduce swelling, ramps of circulation, releases endorphins and speeds up healing and recovery. Treatments in laser therapy are performed by a trained technician, and pet owners can remain with their pet. The laser is directly applied to the affected area of your pet. Typically, multiple treatments are required during the first two weeks of treatment. Improvement is gradual with each laser therapy treatment. After the initial set of treatment, future treatments are spread out until your pet reaches a level of pain reduction.
