Pet Laser Therapy

Reduce Pain and Speed Healing on Cats and Dogs

Cold Laser Therapy is a Non-Invasive and Drug-Free Effective Treatment for Cats and Dogs

At Home Animal Hospital is excited to offer our clients Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols. Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet’s unique health status. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.

Applications for laser therapy on pets include:

Treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, or hip dysplasia General pain management (sprains, strains, and stiffness) Post-surgery pain (spays, neuters, declaws, and other surgeries) Skin problems (hot spots, lick granulomas, infections) Dental procedures Fractures and wounds (bites, abrasions, burns, and lesions) Ear infections

How does cold laser will work on my pet?

Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body for about 3 to 8 minutes and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.

What can my pet expect during a laser therapy treatment session?

Simply put, it provides relief. As the laser is administered, your pet will relax and enjoy the treatment. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experiences will dissipate.

Occasionally, angry cats will start to purr and dogs will actually fall asleep during their therapy session. Frequently, after therapy, we hear: “He’s acting like a puppy again” or “She can actually jump onto the chair again”. Pain relief is provided in just a few minutes of therapy and that alone improves the quality of life for your pet.

What are the signs or conditions that my pet can benefit from Companion Laser Therapy?

Whining, groaning or other vocalizations
