Pet Laser THerapy A Safer Way to Heal

Whether you’re concerned about your pet being in pain after a surgery or due to arthritis, Back Bay Veterinary Clinic can offer an additional layer of relief to their pain control regimen. Pet laser therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that soothes inflammation and pain from the inside out. It also helps injured skin and muscle tissue heal faster. We can apply laser treatments to a wide variety of health conditions to pets of virtually any age and size.

How Our Laser Helps Us Treat Your Pet

Pet laser therapy is a very gentle treatment that creates a calming effect with the warmth it generates, and it doesn't require medications, sedation, or surgery. Using only a beam of infrared light, the laser heals the body at the cellular level, repairing damaged cells and boosting cell activity in injured areas.

If your pet has a chronic problem, they will probably need multiple treatments to see improvement. Acute conditions may only need one treatment.

4 Major Benefits of Laser Therapy Treatment

There are four important ways that pet laser therapy can benefit our patients:

  • Increases blood circulation
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Reduces pain over time
  • Helps damaged and/or infected tissue heal faster

As a result of these benefits, your pet may also feel more energized from their treatment. Overall, their quality of life can be significantly improved.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Pet laser therapy does not cause any side effects in our patients. Because your pet does not need medication or sedation to receive this treatment, there are no risks to their health.
