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. Peggy Herrera has been treating our family for the last 25 years. By our family, we mean exactly that; our cats and dogs are members of our family. Dr. Herrera has seen us through the glorious puppy and kitten years, the usual bumps and scrapes of mid-life, and the difficult, heartrending decisions at the end of our beloved pets lives. We are so grateful to Dr. Herrera for all the excellent care and guidance she has given us over the last 25 years and will continue to trust her judgment long into the future. Thank you. -Regina and Brian Kelberg
