Cold Laser Therapy

Veterinary laser therapy is an innovative treatment that has gained popularity in recent years as veterinarians discover its benefits for pets. Used similarly to acupuncture, massage therapy, and other alternative therapies, laser treatment can be used in conjunction with or in place of medication to manage pain, inflammation, and wound healing.

Therapeutic lasers use light waves of a specific wavelength to cause photobiomodulation, or the alteration of cellular and tissue physiology. Light absorbed by cellular components stimulates electrons and activates cells to promote growth, proliferation, migration, and repair.

Laser therapy is used for many veterinary medical conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Surgical incisions
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Traumatic injuries like lacerations
  • Skin infections
  • Lick granulomas
  • Cystitis (inflammation of the bladder due to stones, infection or FLUTD
    disease in cats)
  • Anal gland infections

When is Pet Therapy Necessary?

Pet Therapy is beneficial for a variety of situations, including post-surgery recovery, chronic pain management, mobility issues, and age-related conditions. If you notice changes in your pet’s behavior, reduced mobility, or signs of discomfort, it may be an opportune time to explore the benefits of Pet Therapy.

With Pet Therapy, we aim to enhance their quality of life, promoting both physical and emotional wellness. Experience the transformative power of Pet Therapy at Loving Family Animal Hospital in Aurora, CO, and let us contribute to the joy and vitality of your furry companion.

During a treatment session, the handheld laser wand is slowly moved back and forth over the damaged tissue, producing a warm, pleasant sensation that most pets seem to enjoy and find relaxing. Sessions usually last 15 to 30 minutes, with the number of sessions and frequency of treatments dependent on the injury. Chronic conditions may be treated weekly, whereas surgical incisions and open wounds often require daily treatment.
