Our clinic has offered Laser Therapy for the past 5 years. We recommend laser therapy for our arthritic patients & some have seen vast improvement for their pet…even to the point of stopping oral medications. We also use the laser therapy for wound care & each surgery performed at our clinic receives a laser therapy treatment (at no additional charge) after the surgery is performed.
The cold laser therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cells and increase blood circulation. At the correct laser wavelength, pain signals are reduced and nerve sensitivity decreases. The procedure also releases endorphins or natural painkillers, but it is not recommended for animals that have cancer because the device can stimulate blood flow to cancer cells.
The procedure is based on the idea that light is absorbed into the cells. The process, known as photo-biotherapy, stimulates protein synthesis and cell metabolism, which improves cell health and functionality. The therapy can take as little as eight to 10 minutes on a small dog or cat, or about a half hour for bigger dogs with more arthritic areas
