Laser Therapy for Dogs and Cats in Avondale Estates, GA

Many pets experiencing acute or chronic pain will try to live with it as best they can, but they don’t have to suffer in silence. The Village Vets Avondale Estates offers various options for relieving acute and chronic pain in pets, and one of these options is laser therapy for dogs and cats. Laser therapy allows us to provide a more long-term pain relief treatment, one that won’t cause unpleasant side effects or prevent your pet from taking other, necessary medications. It is also non-invasive, using the latest technology to heal the body from the inside out using concentrated light waves.

How Pet Laser Therapy Heals

It might seem almost miraculous that light can be used to heal injuries and relieve pain. What happens when your pet undergoes laser therapy is a process called photobiomodulation. In simple terms, when low-level infrared light energy penetrates the skin and muscle tissue, it gets metabolized by the body’s cells. This increases cell repair and production, which:

  • Accelerates healing
  • Reduces inflammation and swelling
  • Relieves pain
  • Increases circulation
  • Energizes the body

Is Laser Therapy Uncomfortable for Pets?

Dogs and cats should not feel any discomfort during their laser treatment. If anything, the treatment should feel quite relaxing. Sometimes, pets even fall asleep during treatment! We’ll make sure your companion is at ease and comfortable during their session, so they’ll respond better to the therapy and hopefully experience better results!

Acute pain and conditions can often be treated sufficiently with just one laser therapy session, but chronic issues need more time to heal and improve. However, treatment is cumulative, which means that over time, your pet’s treatments should be less frequent.
