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.
