Pet Laser Therapy in Johnson City

Pet laser therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that uses light energy to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. We’ll explore the benefits of veterinary laser therapy and how it can improve the lives of our beloved pets.

What Is Pet Laser Therapy?

Veterinary laser therapy, also known as pet laser therapy, is a non-invasive, highly effective treatment that can greatly reduce pain and promote healing. It can be added to treatment protocols for a wide variety of ailments easily and without affecting other medications or procedures.

How Does it Work?

Low-level laser light stimulates cellular activity and promotes healing. The laser light is applied directly to the affected area, penetrating deep into the tissue to reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, and promote tissue repair. This makes veterinary laser therapy an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including arthritis wounds, and post-surgical pain.

What to Expect During a Pet Laser Therapy Session

During a veterinary laser therapy session, your pet will be placed in a comfortable position, and the laser will be directed at the affected area. The laser will be moved around the area in a circular motion, and the treatment will typically last between 5-10 minutes per site.

Most pets will feel a warm, soothing sensation during the treatment, and many will even fall asleep. The number of sessions required will depend on the condition being treated, but most pets will start to see improvements after just a few sessions.

The effects of the treatment are often immediately apparent. Owners often report that their pet’s mobility and comfort greatly increase even on the same day as the treatment once they arrive home.

Is Pet Laser Therapy Right for My Pet?

Veterinary laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for most pets. However, it may not be suitable for pets with certain conditions, such as cancer or pregnancy. It's always best to consult with your veterinarian to determine if laser therapy is the right choice for your pet.
