What Is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a pain-free, non-invasive treatment option for many different conditions. The frequency and duration of your pet's treatments will vary based on the personalized plan our doctors recommend for your pet.

Laser therapy allows us to apply concentrated light energy to a specific area, which increases blood flow, reduces inflammation, and stimulates cells to regenerate. This results in decreased pain and swelling, with shortened healing time. 

Some conditions that can benefit from laser therapy include:

Surgeries including spay, neuter, and lump removal

Orthopedic surgeries including cranial cruciate ligament repairs

Gingivitis and tooth extractions


Intervertebral disk disease or back injuries

Skin disorders

Acute and chronic ear infections
