Pet Laser Therapy
Looking for a way to provide much-needed pain relief for your pet without relying on medication? Consider Companion® laser therapy here at 24/7 Animal Hospital of Orlando. Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free alternative to treating various conditions in animals without side effects. Pet laser therapy can provide relief for more than a dozen physical conditions and nervous system disorders.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Companion® pet laser therapy uses an intense beam of light to penetrate the skin, causing a chemical reaction in the body. This increases cell activity and helps weakened or injured cells repair themselves.
What’s Involved in a Treatment Session?
Laser therapy is one of the safest, least-invasive treatments available for pain management. Each session involves moving a laser therapy probe over the target area, creating a warm, soothing sensation. Some pets even fall asleep during treatment. Sedation is typically not required, but anyone near the laser light (including your pet) should wear protective goggles.
How Soon Will My Pet Experience Relief?
Many pets with acute conditions experience pain relief soon after the treatment session ends. However, longer or more frequent treatment sessions may be necessary for chronic conditions.
