Cold laser therapy uses a low-level laser beam to trigger cell regeneration. A laser is nothing more than a beam of light travelling at a specific frequency. When it reaches your pet's cells, it initiates a chain of chemical reactions called photomodulation.
This process stimulates circulation, reduces inflammation, and releases endorphins - the body's natural pain reliever. Many pet owners notice a positive change in their pet's demeanor after just one or two treatments.
By reducing pain, cold laser therapy helps your pet feel much more comfortable in his or her day-to-day life. You will likely notice your pet's energy level and happiness increase!
Therapeutic laser treatment is non-invasive, safe, and painless to your pet. In fact, the laser releases endorphins that make most pets feel instant enjoyment and relaxation. So much so that some pets fall asleep during their therapy sessions!
Your veterinarian will move the laser wand over the area that needs treatment. One session lasts three to forty-five minutes, depending on your pet's condition and the areas that need the most attention. Pets typically start with treatments three times a week. As healing progresses, treatments become less frequent.
If your pet is suffering from arthritis, recovering from a wound, or dealing with the everyday aches and pains of aging, laser therapy could greatly improve your pet’s quality of life.
