Veterinary care has improved a lot over the decades. Today, many vets use laser therapy to provide pain relief and other non-invasive treatment options for pets dealing with chronic pain and serious injuries.

Understanding Pet Laser Therapy

Laser therapy uses a light to target a specific part of your pet's body. When the laser reaches part of the body, it releases endorphins, thus relieving pain at the site. Laser therapy also reduces inflammation and promotes blood circulation to the targeted area. Cells regenerate faster, which speeds up healing.

Pet laser therapy is not painful. In fact, it will be a very comfortable procedure for your pet. The most uncomfortable part of the treatment is holding still while the laser treatment is applied.

Conditions Treated by Laser Therapy

Many geriatric pets and those who have been injured can benefit from laser therapy. These are some of the conditions that a vet can treat with laser therapy:

  • muscle injury
  • sprains and strains
  • back pain
  • post-surgery recovery
  • wound recovery
  • arthritis
  • joint pain
  • ear infections

Even if your pet's ailments are not on this list, it is important you talk to a veterinarian. A vet can help you determine if your pet is a good candidate for treatment or if laser therapy should be paired with another form of treatment for faster healing.

What Happens during Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a quick procedure for your pet. The veterinarian will use a handheld device to apply the laser to the desired area. This procedure takes just a few minutes, usually around ten. You may be asked to hold your pet to help it be more comfortable during the treatment. Ten minutes can feel like a long time for an animal to hold one pose.
