How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body for about 3 to 8 minutes and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.
What Can My Pet Expect During a Laser Therapy Treatment Session?
Simply put, your pet can expect relief. As the laser is administered, your pet will relax and enjoy the treatment. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experiences will dissipate.
Occasionally, angry cats will start to purr and canine companions will actually fall asleep during their therapy session. Frequently, after therapy, we hear: “He’s acting like a puppy again” or “She can actually sleep through the night.” Pain relief is provided in just a few minutes of therapy and that alone improves the quality of life for your companion. We provide eye protection for both you and your pet during each treatment.
