How Does Pet Laser Therapy Work?

When we talk about laser therapy, we're talking about a different type of laser than the cutting laser used in surgical procedures. This technique is often referred to as low-level or "cold" laser therapy because it emits a much lower frequency of amplified light than a surgical laser. This beam passes right through an animal's skin without causing any damage or pain. Beneath the skin, the beam's energy stimulates the tissues in need of treatment to produce more ATP. ATP is a kind of "fuel" used by cells to repair and regenerate them; the more ATP the tissues have, the faster and more completely they can heal.

Pet laser therapy also reduces pain. The energy of the laser beam warms and soothes muscles, which can ease or prevent painful tightness and spasms. It also increases blood flow to the treatment site, enabling inflammatory substances to exit the tissues more efficiently even as the blood brings healing nourishment to the cells. 

Drug-Free Pain Relief, Chronic Pain Management, and Rehabilitation

Pet laser therapy is a highly versatile form of treatment, with multiple applications. Our East Islip veterinarian prescribes it for pain relief and rehabilitation in many kinds of acute injuries, including strains, sprains, nerve damage, post-operative pain, and fractures. The sheer safety and convenience of laser therapy also make a great tool for chronic pain management, especially in pets who cannot tolerate pain medications. We may prescribe it for the management of conditions such as osteoarthritis, chronic neuropathy, periodontal disease, recurring ear infections, hip dysplasia and other problems.

A typical pet laser therapy session lasts 10 to 20 minutes, making it easy to schedule. No shaving, anesthesia or other extensive preparations are required; you pet simply sits or lies quietly while we administer the soothing, healing laser. In fact, many pets genuinely enjoy the warmth and relaxation conveyed by the laser's energy -- and they definitely enjoy the healing and pain relief benefits they get from their sessions.

Testimonial

  • "I can not say enough about these wonderful people. Dr. Reda is the most compassionate veterinarian I have ever met. My beloved dog passed from cancer, but they were there every step of the way with any questions or concerns, even when they were oh vacation and I was totally distraught about it, they made sure to address my concerns and never made me feel like I was crazy. There should be more people like Dr. Reda and his staff in this business. I am forever grateful for all of you."

Dr. Reda is simply a wonderful veterinarian. I appreciate his well-informed, holistic approach to treatment. He & his staff take the time to give me plenty of information and answer all my questions, while doing everything they can to minimize any distress and discomfort my cats experienced during the visit.
