Animal Care Center and K-9 Rehabilitation treat patients with the alternative therapeutic option for pets in pain: cold laser therapy. Whether recovering from an injury, surgery, or the results of aging, your animal companion may benefit from this revolutionary approach to veterinary medicine. We offer the only FDA-approved cold laser for treating pain and inflammation in our patients.
Laser Therapy For Pets
Laser therapy is used to reduce inflammation with resulting pain relief. This modality is effective in treating acute pain from chronic conditions and is often used for post-operative pain management after orthopedic surgeries.
Laser therapy actually stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are applied to the injured area and absorbed by the cells. The stimulated cells respond by raising the rate of metabolism. This stimulation increases circulation, an anti-inflammatory reaction, which results in relief from pain and accelerated healing.
What is the Process?
Laser therapy utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. The treatment is safe, painless, and fast: Laser therapy to deep tissue is administered in about 10 minutes. During the treatment, pets seem to relax and even enjoy the process. Any anxiety dissipates and some pets even fall asleep. The rapid relief from pain results in the patient’s relaxation and comfort.
Many patients exhibit improvement after just a few sessions. The treatments initiate a healing process that continues to reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after the session.
