Pet Laser Therapy in Park Ridge, NJ

Dog and cat laser therapy has long been used in human medicine to facilitate healing and decrease pain in Park Ridge, NJ. In veterinary medicine, it works in the same way, allowing pets recovering from surgery or dealing with chronic conditions such as arthritis to experience drug-free pain relief. At Park Ridge Animal Hospital, we’re excited to offer pet laser therapy for our patients.

Pet Laser Therapy

Dog and cat laser therapy uses photobiomodulation (a fancy term for light energy) to stimulate cells in damaged tissue. These energized cells work faster toward healing and also aid in triggering physiological effects that reduce pain and inflammation, increase blood circulation, and initiate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. Contact us to find out if laser therapy is right for your dog or cat at: (201) 391-9494.

Conditions Treated With Laser Therapy

Pet laser therapy is useful for a wide range of conditions. These include:

  • Arthritis
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Joint injuries
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Post-operative recovery
  • Wound healing
  • Ear infections
  • Skin conditions
  • Swollen glands
  • And more

Treatment Session Frequency & Length

Depending on your pet’s condition, sessions could range anywhere from about 10-30 minutes. Additionally, the frequency of treatment will vary. Post-operatively, we always use the laser to promote faster healing, and generally, the one session will do. However, for more chronic conditions such as arthritis, you pet may require 2-3 treatments a week. Over time, though, those sessions will taper off to once a week, then once every two weeks, and so on. The treatment plan depends heavily on your dog or cat’s response to treatment.
