What Is Laser Therapy?

Commonly used in physical therapy and rehabilitation, laser therapy involves a low-level radiation output that allows the veterinarian to pinpoint energy precisely where it’s needed most. The dual function laser offers the most advanced platform for photobiomodulation treatments and, the first of its kind, photo thermal therapy for low-grade mast cell tumors.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

Laser therapy's goal is to accelerate your pet's healing process so that they may recover quickly. Using a process called photobiomodulation (PBM), this low-level laser energy transmits light energy from the laser to the cells of injured tissue. Ultimately, this process results in decreased pain and decreased inflammation.

What are the Benefits of Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a doctor-prescribed, form of treatment which effectively treats a wide variety of conditions including pre-surgical, post-surgical, acute, and chronic disease states. Benefits of laser therapy include increased local blood stimulation, increased nutrient levels in the affected area, boosted collagen production, accelerated formation of new blood vessels, and production of endorphins— all things that help your pet’s injury or wound heal faster and feel less painful along the way.

How Often will my Pet Need Treatments?

Generally, the frequency of treatments depends on the type and severity of the injury or condition. At Indian Tree Animal Hospital, we generally recommend two or three laser treatments per week for a few weeks to then determine if any further treatment is needed. It's best to consult with your veterinarian about your pet's condition for an accurate timeline of treatment.
