What is laser therapy and how does it work?

Laser therapy provides non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, and drug-free treatment that is used to treat a variety of conditions.

Laser treatment for dogs employs deep-penetrating light to promote a chain of chemical reactions known as photobiostimulation. This process helps relieve pain through the release of endorphins, and it stimulates injured cells to heal at an accelerated pace.

What conditions can be treated with laser therapy?

  • Ear Infections
  • Gingivitis
  • Arthritis/hip dysplasia
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Muscle, ligament and tendon injuries
  • Post-surgical and soft tissue trauma
  • Hot Spots and open wounds
  • and more!

What to expect:

Laser treatments last between 3-10 minutes. During that time a technician places the laser wand directly over the affected area. Easy as that!

Is laser therapy painful?

Not at all! Your dog won’t feel any pain from the treatment session.

Are there any side effects?

At this time no side effects are known. Laser therapy is seen as a safe and effective way to treat many conditions.
