What conditions can laser therapy treat in pets?
Whether used on its own or as an addition to a comprehensive treatment plan, laser therapy is an effective treatment for:
- Arthritis, Hip Dysplasia and other types of joint diseases
- Chronic pain
- Skin conditions
- Sprains and fractures
- Recovery after surgery or injury
- Anxiety and other behaviour problems
- Dental issues (e.g. gingivitis, healing from extractions)
How many treatments will my pet need?
Many patients see immediate results even after their first session. However, most patients need a series of sessions to get the full benefit. Your veterinarian will recommend the best number and frequency of treatments for your pet.
How does laser therapy work?
The laser sends a concentrated beam of light that triggers all types of reactions or photostimulation within your pet’s body. These reactions cause several types of benefits like the release of pain minimizing chemicals, reduced inflammation, as well as increased circulation and cell repair/healing.
