The Importance of Pain Management

Pain management is an important part of veterinary medicine. Pain in cats and dogs not only causes discomfort, but can also affect your pet’s ability to heal. It triggers the release of cortisol, a stress hormone that inhibits the body’s ability to health itself. Laser therapy reverses this trend by delivering pain relief and encouraging faster healing.

What Conditions Can We Use Pet Laser Therapy For?

Laser therapy is highly versatile and can be used for a wide variety of conditions. The only time we can’t use the laser is if a pet has cancer, or is suspected to have cancer, as the laser could inadvertently trigger cancer cell growth.

Conditions we use laser therapy for include:

  • Arthritis
  • Old age aches and pains
  • Post-operative recovery
  • Wound healing
  • Hot spots
  • Lick granulomas
  • Ear infections
  • Joint injuries
  • Orthopedic issues
  • And so much more

How Does Laser Therapy for Pets Work?

The laser is a handheld device that our technicians hold over your pet’s problem area. The laser emits concentrated light energy that penetrates deep into your pet’s tissue and stimulates physiological change at the cellular level. This process is called photobiomodulation, and its benefits include:

  • Reduced pain, due to a release of endorphins
  • Decreased inflammation due to increased blood circulation
  • Speedier healing due to an increase in cell production
