Not sure how laser therapy might benefit your dog, cat, or another animal? Let’s take a look at how laser therapy works and also what this veterinary treatment can be used to treat.

Here’s How Laser Therapy Works

A veterinarian can use a cold laser that penetrates deep beneath your pet’s skin. Specific wavelengths of light are used to stimulate cellular activity. While lasers may sound scary and like something out of a sci-fi movie, the lasers used to stimulate healing are both safe and effective.

Cells and the body as a whole have a remarkable ability to heal. That said, your pet’s body could use a helping hand to stimulate faster and potentially more effective healing. By applying the right wavelengths of light to a wound (such as a cut) it is sometimes possible to stimulate healing and recovery.

Laser light is also believed to provide pain relief. Fortunately, applying laser light is generally easy and each session typically lasts a matter of minutes. That said, you or your pet might benefit from multiple trips to an animal hospital for veterinary laser therapy treatment.

If you want to learn more about laser treatment, it’s wise to speak with a veterinarian who offers this service. We can fill you in on the benefits and also answer any concerns you might have.
