Laser therapy is an exciting nonsurgical and drug free way to treat pain and inflammation. Laser therapy works by using a beam of laser light over the affected area to deeply penetrate the tissue and create a biological response that speeds healing. Pets generally enjoy laser therapy because it provides soothing warmth to the painful area, and all they need to do is relax on a padded surface. We find that laser therapy can be effective with a wide range of acute and chronic ailments. Sometimes it is used on its own, and sometimes it works best in conjunction with other treatments. Your veterinarian will be happy to discuss this option with you when it may be appropriate for your pet.
