At Wellesley Animal Hospital, we proudly offer therapeutic laser treatment to our patients. It is a modern and effective healing treatment that can be combined with other therapies and medication to help pets recover faster.
How does laser therapy work?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. Laser therapy treats the skin's surface using a light beam that travels at a specific frequency, generating warmth and penetrating a pet's tissue. The treatment will have the following benefits:
- Reduced inflammation and pain
- Increased joint flexibility
- Faster recovery from injuries and wounds
When is laser therapy recommended?
Laser therapy is recommended for pets with chronic pain or to assist with recovery. Here are some health conditions that can be treated with laser therapy:
- Acute and Chronic Pain
- Tendonitis (Tendinitis) and Soft Tissue Inflammation
- Back Injuries
- IVDD and Neurogenic pain
- Gingivostomatitis (mouth)
- Postoperative Orthopedics and other surgeries
- Wound Healing (cuts/bites)
How safe are lasers for my pet?
This form of treatment is entirely safe for your pet. Most pets react well and relax as they feel immediate relief. We ensure your pet is protected during the treatment. Each session only takes a few minutes, and most pets show significant improvement after.
