Veterinary laser therapy, also known as cold laser therapy, is a non-invasive, pain-free, and drug-free treatment used to treat a wide variety of conditions. It is often performed in conjunction with other treatments and uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and blood circulation. We commonly recommend laser therapy for patients who are healing from surgery or wounds.
During laser therapy, a process known as photobiomodulation triggers a biological cascade of events that decreases pain and inflammation while increasing cellular metabolism. This treatment aids in tissue repair by triggering muscle relaxation and endorphin release. It also triggers vasodilation for pain control.
Laser therapy produces a gentle warming sensation that is not painful to your pet. We make patients as comfortable as possible during treatment by laying down a warm blanket and delivering the treatment in a quiet area. Many patients feel so relaxed during laser therapy that they lie down and fall asleep.
