What Is Laser Therapy for Pets?
When it comes to pain relief, it can be a frustrating cycle of trial and error to figure out how to treat an animal. Laser therapy has been shown to have a somewhat high rate of success. Since it doesn't cause more pain and it's a relatively simple procedure, there is nothing to lose by giving it a try.
This therapy causes the pet's body to heal from the inside out. It works by exposing your pet to low-level laser light for approximately 3 to 8 minutes. The light stimulates your pet's cells, leading to accelerated healing, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and pain relief.
Ways Laser Therapy Can Help
At our Nashville veterinary clinic, we offer laser therapy to promote healing for many ailments. These include the following:
- Pain management for stiffness, strains, sprains, and more
- Treatment of hip dysplasia, arthritis, and degenerative joint disease
- Pain treatment after surgery such as spaying, neutering, and declawing
- Skin issues such as infections, hot spots, and lick granulomas
- Dental work
- Ear infection issues
- Lesions, bites, abrasions, and fractures
Good Candidates for Laser Therapy Services
We can often predict which ailments and diseases will be improved through the use of laser therapy. For instance, many older animals that have musculoskeletal issues will experience some degree of relief when given laser therapy. If your pet doesn't wag his or her tail, doesn't appear to have an appetite, limps, has an abnormal lying or sitting posture, trembles, doesn't groom as much, and you see other signs of discomfort and pain, he or she is likely to be an ideal laser therapy candidate.
