What Is Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold laser uses low-level, non-heating light energy to stimulate healing processes at a cellular level. Generally, a number of sessions are required for the full effect. The process involves the use of a hand-held device. The technology can be used to help pets heal from a variety of veterinary care situations.

Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy offers faster healing for wounds after surgery or from accidents that have caused soft tissue injury. It can reduce scarring from wounds, and improve nerve function in affected areas. Cold laser can also reduce pain, which can be helpful for animals that have impaired liver function, which limits their ability to take pain medications, and for cats that generally do not tolerate most pain-relieving drugs.

What to Expect During Cold Laser Therapy for Your Pet

Your pet will be taken by our veterinarian into a therapy room, a relaxed atmosphere for the procedure. A hand-held device is passed over the skin of the affected area, so the energy can penetrate the layers of skin, activating healing processes far below the surface. After the procedure, your pet will be able to continue normal activities in greater comfort.
