Laser Pain Management

Pet Laser Therapy at TLC Animal Hospital

Animals sometimes experience health problems that cause ongoing pain or skin problems that are slow to respond to standard treatments. Laser therapy is a new technology that can relieve these problems without harsh drugs or invasive procedures. At TLC Animal Hospital, we provide laser therapy for pets that suffer from a variety of conditions. 

Laser Therapy

How Laser Therapy Works

Laser treatment uses a high-energy beam of light to facilitate healing in the deep layers of tissue. It is the same technology used in laser eye surgery and other procedures but at a much lower frequency. The low frequency stimulates the production of healing biochemicals under the skin in a process called photobiomodulation. Laser therapy is used to reduce pain, improve circulation and facilitate healing. In addition, the therapy helps to reduce inflammation and relaxes muscles.

Laser Therapy Can Help Many Conditions

Our veterinarians use laser therapy to help a broad range of veterinary issues. The technology can help wounds to heal faster after surgery. It hastens healing in injured tendons and ligaments. Laser therapy reduces pain and stiffness from arthritis. Laser therapy is also used to heal chronic skin conditions.

A Typical Laser Therapy Session

During a laser therapy session, your pet will lay comfortably on a padded table or blanket on the floor. The affected area of the body may need to be shaved in order to reach the tissues accurately, but this is not always the case. Sedatives to relax the animal for treatment are generally not needed. Our vets use a hand-held device that is passed over the surface of the affected area for a pre-determined period of time. Usually, several sessions are needed for the full effect of the therapy. Your pet can continue normal activities after a session without any side effects.

    The best exotic vet in town. Took one of my guinea pigs to a vet here and was so happy with the customer service and knowledge. It’s just a shame I didn’t hear about this place sooner when my other guinea pig had ringworm. Just got a puppy and will be calling to make an appointment for him, I know he will get the best care here.
