Therapeutic Laser

We are happy to be able offer your pets healing laser therapy, a new and exciting alternative to traditional therapy for arthritis and joint pain. Our K Laser Class 4 therapeutic laser provides the benefits of oral or injectable medications for pets in pain without many of the commonly associated side effects.

While no treatment is always successful when dealing with chronic ailments, our experience with laser therapy has been overwhelmingly positive. Many of our patients are now significantly improved without the use of non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs.

Laser treatment is suitable for dogs and cats, is free from side effects and produces a mild soothing heat over the treatment area. The science behind this modality is well established. In summary, the laser light is able to penetrate deeply into the tissue and provide energy that stimulates cellular respiration to promote healing. The light energy also affects nerves directly reducing the transmission of pain signals to the central nervous system. The net result is increased rate of healing and decreased pain. A pretty good combination!!

After an initial consultation with a veterinarian to plan therapy, treatments are completed by our staff of laser certified technicians and typically take less than 10 minutes. Most pets benefit from the therapy within the first 2-3 sessions scheduled in the first week of treatment. Thereafter, sessions are reduced in frequency to a maintenance schedule based on the duration of benefit for your pet, usually every 2-4 weeks.

The cost of laser treatment depends on the number of joints requiring treatment. Please see the laser information sheet for a detailed price list.

Please contact our office if you are interested in scheduling a laser consult or have any questions regarding treatment. We look forward to helping you and your pet discover the benefits of healing laser soon!
