Pet Laser Therapy In San Jose, CA
If your pet is in pain with inflammation or a wound, we offer an excellent non-invasive treatment option. Pet laser therapy provides a scientifically proven successful treatment for post-surgical procedures and painful physical conditions. Instead of treating pain with nerve blocks and opioids, pet laser therapy is an alternative treatment with proven results. Cold laser therapy for dogs and cats helps provide long-term pain relief. The treatment is drug-free, non-invasive, and doesn’t have side effects. Contact us for more information.
What Is Pet Laser Therapy?
Pet laser therapy is administered through a handheld laser device controlled by our trained technicians. The laser is set to a specific wavelength frequency depending on your pet’s coat color, condition, and thickness. It’s then held over the problem area, emitting painless laser light that penetrates deep into the tissue of your pet. Laser light therapy stimulates blood circulation to reduce inflammation, boosts endorphins to fight pain naturally, and increases cell production for faster healing. Most sessions last from about ten minutes to 30 minutes.
Pet Conditions and Injuries
Pet laser therapy helps boost the recovery process for many conditions and injuries, including:
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Post-Surgical Pain
- Ear Infections
- Gastrointestinal Issues
- Chronic Pain
- Tissue Damage
- Hip Dysplasia
- Cystitis (Chronic Bladder Infection)
What Should I Expect During My Pet’s Laser Therapy?
Pet laser therapy treatment appointments are quick and simple. Once our technician applies the cold laser light to your pet’s targeted area, you may even notice signs of immediate relief from your pet. Cold therapy treatments are relaxing and calming to most pets. We understand all pets are different, so the duration of each treatment will differ. Depending on your cat or dog’s physical condition, the duration of the treatment sessions will vary. The laser does not hurt your animal, so it should feel calm and secure.
How Many Sessions Will My Pet Need?
You may see results following your pet’s first cold laser therapy treatment. The number of sessions your pet will need depends on their personalized condition. Pets with chronic issues may not see results for a few treatments. Laser pet therapy is cumulative, meaning you’ll start to see results that last for more extended periods of time. We treat each pet with a customized pet laser treatment plan to ensure optimal results.
How Do I Know If Laser Therapy Is Working?
Your pet can’t talk, but they can communicate with you to tell you if laser therapy is working in other ways. You may notice an arthritic dog or cat moves around easier or can get up faster. If your pet has laser treatment for ear infections, you may notice inflammation and redness disappear in the ears. If your pet has therapy for wounds, you’ll visibly notice the wound getting smaller.
