Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Therapy for Pets
Can it harm my pet?
No. In fact, most dogs enjoy their sessions because they get to just lay there and be a good boy while getting attention and seemingly petted by the laser device. There is no pain involved with laser therapy. While nothing invasive, laser therapy is highly effective, due to the ability of the lasers to penetrate the skin into damaged areas.
How does this therapy work?
The science behind this technology is that a concentrated beam is placed directly over the injury using an easy to control device at the hands of a veterinarian. When the laser light reaches the location photobiomodulation reduces pain signals, inflammation, and increases blood flow and circulation to the area.
How long does it take?
Each session takes anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes per session. The amount of sessions will depend on the injury and your pet's body's response to the treatment. You should see some positive results after session one.
What type of conditions does laser therapy treat?
Laser therapy is effective on many conditions and injuries. Whether the injury is acute or chronic or the pain is caused by a degenerative disease like arthritis the lasers work the same way to regenerate nerve tissue with a beam of light that penetrates into the damaged tissue.
