COLD LASER THERAPY IS A FORM OF PHOTOTHERAPY PROVEN EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT AND STIMULATING TISSUE REPAIR.
While we wouldn't recommend laser therapy just because your pet would enjoy it, for a pet suffering from skin irritations or wounds or enduring painful mobility due to arthritis or accidental injury... it may just feel like a day at the spa. Cold laser therapy is non-invasive and relaxing for your pet.
Treatment time and lengths vary dependent upon the patient’s needs, and the response to treatment can also vary, but among pet parents and veterinarians alike, the verdict is in: Cold laser therapy is here to stay!
"This is important, exciting stuff,"
--Good Morning America's family doctor for pets
"Laser therapy is a very effective modality to speed and direct healing in dogs with painful arthritis, strains and sprains and other injuries or effects of aging."
-- Dr. Christine Zink, director of the department of molecular and comparative pathobiology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
After laser therapy, dog owners might see their dog go upstairs more often, play with a ball he's not picked up in months or go back to getting on the couch for his nightly snuggle with family members. And, when dogs have better mobility, medications can often be reduced. Laser therapy won't cause your dog any unwanted side effects. The laser used for this type of treatment will not burn your dog's skin
