Laser Therapy

Does your animal friend suffer from chronic pain? Has a recent surgery or injury slowed your normally active companion down?

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment option that uses the power of light to stimulate the body’s natural healing and pain control response. Through this innovative technology, your loved one can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility, and quicker recovery periods. Laser therapy can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods.

Benefits of Laser Therapy
  • Anti-inflammation – decreases swelling from bruising/inflammation
  • Anti-Pain – blocks pain by decreasing nerve sensitivity
  • Accelerates tissue repair, cell growth, and nerve function
  • Improves circulation
  • Accelerates healing and reduces scarring
