What is Pet Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy uses low dosage light energy to target damaged tissue which has been shown to relieve pain, stimulate and enhance cell function, and improve healing.
Several conditions have been shown to improve with the use of laser therapy including muscle and joint pain, arthritis symptoms, and muscle spasms.
Cold laser therapy produces a cumulative effect, so your vet will likely prescribe multiple treatment sessions. For the best results, these should be done at the frequency your veterinarian recommends.

Benefits of Laser Therapy
Safe, low-stress laser therapy can hold many potential benefits for pets, including a reduction in swelling, inflammation and pain.
At the same time, this treatment encourages bone healing, improves wound healing and increases blood perfusion. It also enhances neovascularization (the natural formation of new blood vessels).
During laser therapy sessions, muscles relax, blood vessels widen and endorphins are released. All of these work together to promote faster repair and healing of damaged tissue.
