Pet Laser Therapy for Soothing Relief
Pet laser therapy offers effective, drug-free pain relief for many medical issues. Furthermore, laser therapy is an excellent option for your pet after surgery because it hastens the recovery process. Since it uses the regenerative properties of your pet’s own body, it helps treat a number of chronic and acute conditions. Lake Shore Pet Hospital is pleased to offer this cutting-edge treatment option to Pasadena and area communities.
We use Class IV K-laser therapy. Learn more and watch their Veterinary Client Education Video!
How Laser Therapy Works
First used as a sport’s injury treatment, pet laser therapy has been shown to reduce both pain and inflammation. When red and near-infrared light penetrate past skin and fur, cellular renewal and circulation are increased. Consequently, damaged areas heal as water, oxygen, and nutrients are absorbed. Since the warm light is soothing and because it releases feel-good hormones, your pet may begin to look forward to therapy sessions.
The duration and frequency of sessions vary because they depend on your pet and their issue. So, we may prescribe a single session or ask to see your pet up to three days per week. Similarly, the duration of sessions will vary depending on how thick their skin and fur is. Post-surgical recovery treatment can be scheduled directly after your pet's procedure.
Helping a Variety of Conditions
Because laser therapy heals from the inside out, the conditions it can treat are potentially endless. Most commonly, it’s used to soothe post-surgical incisions, chronic or painful conditions. Consider bringing a senior pet in to see us regularly for soothing relief. Due to their tendency to have achy joints and arthritis, they may especially benefit from its restorative effects.
Painful conditions K-laser therapy has been shown to manage:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Atopic dermatitis
- Ear infections
- And more…
