Cold Laser Therapy
Veterinary cold laser therapy, often referred to as low level laser therapy, is a noninvasive means of pet pain management and wound healing for dogs and cats. Cold laser therapy can be used in conjunction with veterinary acupuncture (a method of pain management using needles), as both methods encourage cell rejuvenation and excite circulation. A penetrating light beam shines from the laser wand that is directed to the problem area; the light then comfortably stimulates cell regeneration and blood flow.
Often relaxing and soothing to the pet, such treatment has proven to be rather enjoyable for our patients. And contrary to common misconception, shaving your pet’s shiny fur coat is not necessary when receiving cold laser therapy—unless, of course, Fido and Tiger are seeking fresh, trendsetting hairstyles for the summer!
