How Does Laser Therapy for Dogs and Cats Work?
Laser therapy is completely non-invasive. When the laser light penetrates deep into your pet’s tissue, it causes them no harm or discomfort. In simple terms, laser therapy uses light particles which interact with your pet’s cells. Damaged cells are able to be repaired, and this sets the healing process in motion.
During a laser procedure, will be required to stand or lay down as needed so we can treat the affected area. Your veterinarian will have a handheld device that is connected to a small computer. This computer allows us to calibrate your pet’s treatment according to their needs, so they receive the correct “dose” of light. During the procedure, the handheld device, which emits the light particles, will be carefully and slowly massaged over the affected area for a specific amount of time.
