Your pet will find this type of therapy relaxing, as the specialized frequencies of light help to produce endorphins which can act as pain killers and stress-reducers. A typical treatment can last between 3 - 20 minutes, depending on the size of your pet and the location and intensity of your pet’s pain or inflammation.
Laser therapy does not require sedation or shaving your pet’s fur, meaning that your pet can have multiple treatments within a single day or week. According to the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation, there are no adverse side effects, as this specialized laser therapy does not burn or cut your pet’s skin.
A veterinarian will examine your pet, take x-rays if necessary, and prescribe a treatment plan individualized to your pet’s needs. Help your pet get back to his happy, healthy self quickly with laser therapy!
