What is Laser Therapy?
Using a CO2 laser for surgical procedures reduces the pain, bleeding and swelling for your pet. The laser seals off blood vessels, nerve endings and lymphatics, which results in less bleeding, inflammation and pain at the surgical site. Less inflammation and pain improves your pet's recovery time.
Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive form of treatment which stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control response. It can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods. Using a small, handheld device, the doctor applies a low level laser to the area on question, stimulating normal cellular function. This results in faster wound healing and enhanced pain relief. Best of all, because laser therapy requires no medication or surgery, there are no harmful side effects.
