Pet Laser Therapy
Non-invasive, safe and painless form of therapy.
Therapeutic laser treatments is one of the many non-conventional treatment options we offer at Mars Hill Animal Hospital. Laser therapy is the application of Laser Radiation to stimulate healing and reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment that uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissues, inducing a biological response in the cells called photo-bio-modulation.
Laser Therapy treatment is facilitated by a certified technician using a handpiece that emits the laser light. Both the patient and the technician wear protective glasses that block indirect laser light. Many of our patients that are regularly treated with laser therapy enjoy the soothing warmth the laser emits as well as the one on one care and time with our staff.
How does pet laser therapy work?
Laser therapy uses deep penetrating beams of the light to alter cells and the tissue that surrounds them. When the light penetrates the body’s cellular components, it stimulates the targeted cells and promotes healing. Perhaps most importantly, though, laser therapy is entirely painless.
Whether your dog is struggling with post-surgical pain or they’re simply getting older, laser therapy can help them live their very best life. Treatments are relatively quick and can be easily integrated with traditional medical procedures and other holistic practices like acupuncture, reiki, and hydrotherapy.
