Laser Therapy for Dogs and Cats in Dyer
Laser therapy for dogs and cats is an innovative technology that helps reduce pain and improve quality of life. It uses concentrated light energy to energize cells deep in damaged tissue. With faster-acting cells, your pet experiences less pain and a faster recovery. The best part is that laser therapy has zero side effects. At Dyer Animal Clinic, we’re proud to provide pain relief for dogs and cats using the Companion Laser Therapy System.
What Laser Therapy Does for Your Pet
Due to its non-invasive nature, laser therapy is effective for a wide range of conditions. It helps to address the following:
- Post-surgical recovery
- Wound healing
- Hip dysplasia symptoms
- Degenerative joint disease
- And just about any ache or pain your pet experiences
Laser therapy for dogs and cats acts the same for each condition. The energized cells help to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, reduce pain, and thereby speed up recovery.
The Timeline for Treatment
Pet laser therapy is cumulative. Each following session has a greater and longer-lasting benefit. However, the timeline varies depending on your pet’s condition. For instance, one session after a minor surgery may be all that’s needed to stimulate faster healing. Meanwhile, a degenerative condition like arthritis will need multiple sessions in order to continually reduce pain. Typically, we’ll start with a more intense schedule of every other day and then begin to lengthen it out to twice a week, then once a week, every two weeks, etc. Our veterinarians will work with you and your pet to establish the most efficient schedule for you.
