Cold Laser Therapy
What is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is an innovative therapeutic treatment that has become increasingly popular as veterinarians have discovered its efficacy in helping dogs and cats recover from injury and illness.
Our vets are passionate about providing the highest quality treatment for your pet and cold laser therapy provides a safe, non-invasive, and effective way of alleviating pain and encouraging your pet's return to their normal, healthy selves.
At Sweetwater Veterinary Clinic our team of veterinary professionals has found cold laser therapy to be an effective way to reduce inflammation in some pets and soothe pain associated with a variety of joint and muscle conditions including arthritis.
Uses for Veterinary Laser Therapy
Pet laser therapy has a wide variety of uses and is particularly effective when it is combined with other traditional medications and veterinary treatment procedures.
Cold laser therapy for dogs and cats works by promoting circulation and encouraging cell regeneration, which can prove beneficial for the following procedures and conditions:
- Strains & Sprains
- Bone Fractures
- Dental Procedures
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Lick Granuloma
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Post-Surgical Recovery
Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
Veterinary cold laser therapy may provide various health benefits to pets. When your dog or cat receives low-intensity laser therapy, the wavelengths of light prompt an alteration of the physiology of their cells and tissues, called photobiomodulation.
Some of the benefits of cold laser therapy include:
- Encourages bone healing
- Increases wound healing
- Enhances neovascularization
- Accelerates mitochondrial cell metabolism
- Reduces inflammation and associated pain
- Increases blood perfusion
- Reduces edema (swelling)
