What is Pet Laser Therapy?
posted: Oct. 07, 2021.
At Hillview Veterinary Clinic/Bed and Biscuit, we have been sharing the benefits of pet laser therapy with residents of Reynoldsburg, OH for many years. Pet laser therapy may be an option when you are looking to help your pet recover from injury. It will also reduce inflammation in your pet’s body. When you first visit our office, our veterinarian will assess your pet’s condition to determine how it will benefit from pet laser therapy.
Veterinarians commonly use lasers in the red or near-infrared spectrum. The class of lasers that are in the higher wavelengths target the bones and the muscles. Animal doctors sometimes use wavelengths in the lower green, blue, or violet spectrum. Therapeutic lasers provide benefits because they alter the cells and tissues of the body. Lasers stimulate cellular activity, promoting regeneration and circulation.
This kind of therapy is non-invasive and it causes your pet no pain. It's a matter of moving the laser over the problem area. Most sessions last less than 10 minutes, although our veterinarian may recommend multiple sessions depending on what condition brought your pet in for treatment.
Lightwave Therapy for Injuries and More
Therapeutic lasers can treat pet injuries including cuts, scrapes, and fractures. Pet laser therapy can also heal injuries of the tendons and ligaments. Following laser treatment, your pet is likely to experience less swelling, less pain, and faster healing. This treatment may also be used to ease the pain related to dental procedures, general surgery, ear infections, arthritis, degenerative joint disease, and hip dysplasia.
