Laser Therapy for Pets involves the use of a laser light applied directly to the affected areas. It’s a non-invasive, painless form of therapy that works to heal compromised tissue, increase blood circulation, and helps to manage pain. Each session takes between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on the animal’s size and medical condition. Laser Therapy offers the following benefits:
- Reduces pain
- Loosens muscles
- Increases blood circulation
- Stimulates and improves cellular function
- Facilitates protein synthesis
- Releases endorphins
At Greenbriar Veterinary Hospital, Laser Therapy will be utilized with many of our post-op and neurologic patients along with several other forms of therapy.
Canine Cold Laser Therapy
Canine Cold Laser Therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Treatments to deeper tissues are administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Typically, even chronic patients exhibit improvement after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Laser therapy utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Despite short treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment.
Here at Greenbriar, we use the Companion Class IV Laser as well as the K Laser. Companion therapy lasers are the most popular among veterinarians. Laser therapy is a clinically proven modality in both human and veterinary medicine. LiteCure, the parent company of Companion, is the leader in scientific research and education.
Laser Therapy services are now offered in packages with discounted pricing.
