It produces a photochemical, non-thermal and photomechanical effect. Laser therapy uses cutting-edge technology to treat a variety of ailments including arthritis, skin conditions, wound healing, gingivitis, hip dysplasia and degenerative joint disease.

How is laser therapy applied to pet?

Laser Therapy contains directing a beam of laser light over the pet’s skin, straight above the area where the pet has some discomfort, inflammation, or injury. Not like a surgical laser, Therapy Lasers do not cut or burn tissue, they stimulate tissue to heal. The beam of laser light travels over the area for several minutes, the length of time varies with the size of the pet and the size of the treatment area. The therapy can take as little as eight to 10 minutes on a small dog or cat, or about a half hour for bigger animals with more therapeutic areas. During this time the pet will be really relaxed and calm.
