Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), is an innovative and non-invasive treatment option that has gained popularity in veterinary medicine for its numerous applications in both dogs and cats. This cutting-edge therapy involves the use of low-intensity laser light to stimulate healing and reduce pain and inflammation.
By targeting specific areas of the body, cold laser therapy has been found effective in treating a wide range of conditions, including musculoskeletal injuries, arthritis, wound healing, and even neurological disorders. With its ability to promote tissue repair and enhance overall well-being, cold laser therapy offers a gentle and drug-free approach to pain control, wound healing, ear infections and other common conditions effecting the health and quality of life for our beloved four-legged companions.

How many treatments will my pet need with laser therapy?
The number of treatments required for laser therapy can vary depending on various factors, including the specific condition being treated, the severity of the condition, and the individual response of your pet. Typically, a course of laser therapy consists of multiple sessions scheduled over a period of time. In general, acute conditions may require fewer treatments, while chronic conditions may necessitate a more extended treatment plan.
Typical packages are:
- Post-operative pain - standard 1 treatment, immediately post-op
- Infected or traumatic wound - 3-6 treatments over 2 weeks
- Chronic pain or arthritis - initial 3 treatments followed by weekly to biweekly maintenance, dependent on response.
During the initial consultation your veterinarian will evaluate your pet's condition and develop a customized treatment plan. Our veterinarians will consider factors such as the size and age of your pet, the area to be treated, and the desired outcome. They will also monitor your pet's progress throughout the treatment process and may make adjustments to the treatment plan if necessary.
