Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy for Dogs

January 18, 2022

Did you know that Animal Care Center offers cold laser therapy for dogs?

This non-invasive, gentle treatment provides pain relief for canine arthritis, hip dysplasia, and many other conditions by reducing inflammation. If your dog is recovering from a surgery or injury, or suffering from chronic pain, cold laser therapy could help.

What Is Cold Laser Therapy for Dogs?

Cold laser therapy uses light to increase blood circulation and stimulate cell regeneration. Commonly referred to as low-level laser therapy, or class IV laser therapy, this medical procedure can successfully treat chronic pain and promote wound healing in dogs with tendon or soft tissue injuries.

Cold laser therapy uses a beam of light to penetrate the skin and stimulate healing. The laser emits light at a pre-programmed frequency to reduce inflammation and treat issues like arthritis, hip dysplasia, joint pain, and more. Cold lasers are extremely versatile and offer a completely painless, non-invasive way to heal damaged tissues.

Cold laser therapy can be used to treat:

  • Acute injuries, sprains, and strains
  • Canine arthritis
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Spinal disk swelling
  • Muscular abnormalities
  • Nerve tissue regeneration after surgical procedures

Is Cold Laser Therapy Scary for Dogs?

Most dogs enjoy the treatment and find it relaxing. The results of the treatment can be seen almost instantly! Because cold laser therapy does not require your dog to be shaved or sedated at all, it can be performed as often as needed. Cold laser therapy is a 100% pain-free, gentle treatment option for many dogs.
