What Can be Treated with Pet Laser Therapy?

There aren’t many conditions* in dogs and cats that cannot be improved in some way with laser therapy. Some common indications include:

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative disc or joint disease
  • Sprains
  • Bone fractures
  • Lick granulomas
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Surgical sites
  • Ear infections
  • Inflammation anywhere on the body
  • Gingivitis
  • …and more

*We do have to make an exception for cancer or potentially cancerous conditions, which can be worsened with laser therapy. In those cases, we would need to find another treatment option.

How the Procedure Works

The laser therapy procedure is straightforward, and can even prove relaxing for your pet. We take a hand-held device that gently emits low-frequency infrared light and carefully massage it over the area needing treatment. The light particles penetrate deep into the damaged tissue, invigorating the body’s cells and increasing cell repair and production.

This process:

  • Increases blood flow and circulation
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Soothes away pain
  • Improves mobility in stiff, painful joints

Every laser treatment is calibrated according to each individual pet’s needs. We take into account their age, size, condition, and skin/coat color to ensure the light particles penetrate sufficiently to have an effect.

Signs Your Pet is in Pain and Might Benefit from Laser Therapy

Dogs and cats are skilled at hiding signs of pain--it comes naturally to them. Look for these signs to determine whether a checkup and laser therapy treatment might be necessary:

  • Sleeping more
  • Eating less
  • Less social and playful than usual
  • Avoids running and jumping, going up stairs
  • Moves gingerly
  • Slow to stand/lie down
  • Repeatedly licks at a certain spot
  • Limping

Call (330) 262-3465 if your pet is showing signs of pain. We might be able to prescribe laser therapy to relieve their discomfort and improve their quality of life.
