How Pet Laser Therapy Can Help Your Pet's Rehabilitation

Many of the medical therapies that have proven effective in humans have been adopted for our pets, and laser therapy is no exception. Valley Animal Rehabilitation in Clifton is proud to offer laser therapy for pet rehabilitation to our community.

How Laser Therapy Works for Pet Rehab

Rather than just letting the slow process of healing happen naturally, pet rehabilitation can be assisted by laser therapy. This form of therapy encourages blood flow and new cell growth at the site of the laser. Pets may also experience reductions in pain and inflammation, improving their quality of life after laser therapy. A handheld laser device is held over your pet's body at the location that requires healing. This laser causes no discomfort to your pet and laser therapy does not cause any known side effects. Each session takes just a few minutes to complete.

Conditions Treated with Laser Therapy

Laser therapy may be appropriate if your pet has a muscle or ligament injury, back pain, ear infections, gingivitis, hot spots, arthritis, or degenerative disc disease. Pets who have recently undergone surgery may also benefit from laser therapy. Noticeable signs of pain, including limping, licking, scratching, low energy, or whining, might indicate that your pet has a condition that can be treated with laser therapy.

How Many Laser Therapy Sessions Are Needed?

The answer to this question depends on your pet's ailment. Wounds and other acute injuries may improve with as few as one or two laser therapy treatment sessions. However, other conditions may require long-term treatment. For example, pets with arthritis or hip dysplasia may visit us twice a week for laser therapy sessions. We will look for signs of improvement, which may be noticeable after just one session, and update the treatment plan as necessary.
