Our therapeutic laser allows us to address many different physical conditions in dogs cats of virtually all ages and sizes.

How Laser Therapy Procedures Work

No sedation is necessary for pets undergoing laser therapy, and the treatment is also drug-free. We use a hand-held device that emits low-level infrared light over the affected area. The light particles safely penetrate through the skin and deeper muscle tissue, where they stimulate cell activity and accelerate the healing process. The procedure is completely painless and only takes 5-20 minutes, depending on the condition being treated.

While the actual process that takes place at the cellular level during treatment seems complex, the procedure itself is quite simple. For some pets, it can even be relaxing!

Conditions We can Improve with Laser Therapy
