Laser Therapy Relieves Pet Pain & Enhances Healing

laser therapy

Recent technology offers new options for pain management and increased mobility in dogs and cats. Peninsula Center Pet Hospital provides therapeutic laser treatments for a variety of maladies and conditions.

What Is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is a treatment option that reduces inflammation and helps relieve pain in many patients, stimulating the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are directed to the inflamed area and absorbed by injured cells. These stimulated cells respond with increased circulation, reduced inflammation, accelerated healing, and relief from pain.

Treatments are safe and painless, lasting only a few minutes. In addition, laser therapy treatments actively reduce inflammation and pain for up to 24 hours.

Uses for Laser Therapy in Pets

Laser therapy uses the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. As an alternative or companion treatment to drug therapies, laser therapy is often effective in treating acute, chronic, and post-operative pain. Uses for this effective new therapy include:

  • Healing wounds
  • Enhanced healing of fractures
  • Rehabilitation from trauma or injury
  • Chronic pain

Both canine and feline patients respond positively to laser therapy. The majority experience relief, comfort, and improved quality of life.

Integrative Options for Pain Relief

Peninsula Center Pet Hospital performs laser therapy in our hospital. If the doctor believes additional options may benefit your pet, we are pleased to refer you to practitioners for services such as veterinary acupuncture.

Dr. Herrera and her staff have been so good to my grandmother and her dogs for the past 15 plus years. During the last days of one of her dogs, Dr. Peggy stayed with him even on the weekend before he passed to care for him and make him comfortable. And when grandma could no longer care for her last pup, Dr. Peggy kept him for her and adopted him out to a good home. There is not that many vets out there that would take the time to help an old lady find a loving home for their pet, but Dr. Peggy is special and cares about her patients. Dr. Herrera is TOPS in my book. Thanks for taking care of my grandma.
