Pet Laser Therapy for Pain Management

Pet laser therapy offers pets a safer pain management option. It is entirely non-invasive and drug-free, meaning there is no risk of side effects. At our two Boynton Beach locations, we use pet laser therapy frequently for post-operative recovery, arthritis, skin conditions, and more.

How Does it Work?

Therapeutic lasers promote healing on a cellular level. The laser light penetrates deep into the tissue, stimulating cell productivity. With increased energy, cells are able to repair damaged tissue faster and decrease inflammation. Furthermore, the laser encourages the production of the body’s natural pain killers, which helps to alleviate your pet’s discomfort.

When Do We Use Our Therapeutic Laser?

Pet laser therapy is a versatile pain management modality that can help pets with a wide range of conditions. Some of the most common conditions we use our laser for include:

How Frequently Will My Pet Need Laser Therapy?

Your veterinarian will develop a unique treatment plan for your pet depending on their condition and response to treatment. Generally, acute conditions such as post-operative recovery and wound healing need only one or two sessions to see improvement. Meanwhile, more chronic conditions such as arthritis require one or two sessions a week until improvement is seen. Then, we’ll be able to taper off treatments to once every two weeks, once a month, etc.
