Laser therapy, or photobiomodulation, is a light therapy that helps reduce inflammation, decrease pain, increase circulation, and decrease healing time. A laser light is used to penetrate deep into tissues to stimulate on the cellular level to produce ATP, which is an energy source that cells use to accelerate the healing process and most treatments take less than 5 minutes.
Laser therapy is a pain-free and drug-free option for many conditions including wounds, sprains, strains, hot spots, arthritis, lick granulomas, and ear infections. Laser therapy has also been a proven treatment for post-surgical pain that will help keep your pet comfortable while recovering from surgery. Laser therapy can also be used on pets that have done strenuous activity, like hunting, swimming, or agility, to alleviate any soreness.
Most pets enjoy their treatments since it feels like a warm massage. Some owners may see results as soon as 24 hours after the first treatment but it may take 2-8 treatments for owners to notice a significant change.
