Laser Therapy

What Is Laser Therapy?

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. 

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

Some of the 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
  • Arthritis
