Staff doing laser therapy on cat


A Class IV therapeutic laser has remarkable benefits for pets that may struggle with problems such as:

  • arthritis
  • tendon and ligament injuries
  • sore muscles and joints
  • neurological pain
  • inter-vertebral disk disease
  • chronic non-healing wounds
  • muscular-skeletal disorders
  • chronic ear and/or skin inflammation
  • chronic bladder inflammation in cats
  • many other conditions related to pain and/or inflammation
  • postoperative wound healing


How does it work?

The specific wavelengths of laser light energy interact with cells within the tissue to initiate processes that decrease pain, inflammation and edema.

Your dog or cat can be treated with laser therapy at any age.

  • treatments are quick, done in the exam room, usually last less than 10 minutes
