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.

Conditions Treated With Laser Therapy
Pet laser therapy is useful for a wide range of conditions. These include:
- 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.
