What is Laser Treatment for Pets?

Laser therapy is a type of treatment using a light -- a cold laser -- that is applied in a targeted area on your pet's skin. The laser light triggers the release of endorphins in your pet's cells, which in turn can reduce inflammation and relieve pain. The procedure works by improving blood circulation in the targeted area and stimulating cell regeneration. Faster cell regeneration means that your pet can recover from surgery or an injury or ailment much more quickly than normal.

Is Pet Laser Treatment Painful?

Not at all. If your pet feels any sensations during the treatment it will be similar to slight warming or a tingling sensation on the skin. Many pets are relaxed by this non-invasive procedure. There are also no known side effects of laser treatment, which makes it highly preferable when compared to pain relief medications. In many cases, laser therapy can be used all by itself as a means of rehabilitation for a pet. 

What Laser Treatment Can Be Utilized For?

There is a wide range of conditions that your veterinarian at Georgetown Animal Hospital can treat through laser therapy. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Injury to muscles, ligaments or tendons
  • Back pain
  • Ear infections
  • Post-surgical recovery for pain relief
  • Hot spots
  • Arthritis or joint problems
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Wound recovery

Laser Treatment Appointment

A laser therapy appointment with a veterinarian is very quick. The treatment itself involves the veterinarian applying the laser with a handheld device to the affected area. The light is applied for 3 to 10 minutes. Many pets feel immediate relief from pain when the laser is applied. It's not unusual for a pet to fall asleep during a laser treatment because they are fully relaxed by the sudden relief from pain.
