During laser therapy, the treatment can have relaxing benefits on the patient. Often, the animal may enjoy the warming sensation; some cats even purr during their laser therapy session.
A beam of light is focused on a patient’s area of concern for several minutes at a time. The most common patients of laser therapy are usually older cats and dogs who may suffer from conditions such as arthritis, ACL tears, inflammation, post-surgical pain, wounds, teeth pain, and degenerative disc disease.
Laser Therapy is effective to help with most sources of pain, as it uses the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. Pet owners typically see an improvement in their pet’s behavior just after one laser therapy session.
