How Does Pet Laser Therapy Work
Laser therapy does not require anesthesia or any shaving of your pet’s fur. The laser light is delivered through a non-invasive hand piece held to the affected area, and your pet will feel gentle and soothing warmth. The reduction in pain your pet will feel is almost immediate. Based upon the type of condition being treated, multiple laser therapy sessions may be needed.
What You Can Expect Post Laser Therapy Treatment
Laser therapy does not require any post treatment restrictions. Many pet owners see a change in activity level when their pet comes home. In some pets, the reduction of pain allows them to resume their favorite activities and they have more energy. Alternatively, some pets appear more relaxed, especially if your pet’s pain has been affecting his or her sleeping habits.
