Laser Therapy for Dogs and Cats: Pain Relief for Your Pet

At Companion Animal Hospital River North, we’re proud to offer therapeutic laser treatment to provide pain relief for dogs and cats. For painful and/or slow-healing conditions, laser therapy is a painless, noninvasive option for reducing pain and inflammation and accelerating healing. The laser energy we use stimulates the body’s own healing abilities by boosting cellular activity and generating a deep warming sensation that soothes your pet.

What it Can Be Used For

With pet laser therapy we can treat a multitude of conditions, but especially:

  • Acute and chronic pain
  • Virtually any kind of inflammation
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Lick granulomas
  • Post-surgical sites
  • Muscle spasms

Laser therapy is highly beneficial to pets that are recovering from surgery and need additional treatment to help them heal and have as little pain as possible.

Why You Should Consider Laser Therapy for Your Pet

The therapeutic laser treatment we provide requires no drugs or sedation, making it an excellent option for pets that do not respond well to medication. Additionally, our laser generates a soothing warming sensation on contact that can be very comforting and enjoyable for pets experiencing acute or chronic pain.
