Pet Laser Therapy at Aliso Beach Animal Clinic
Vets use laser therapy to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and treat various conditions in pets. Is your pet suffering from a painful condition that has greatly interfered with its life? At Aliso Beach Animal Clinic in Laguna Beach, CA, we offer laser therapy to alleviate pain and treat various issues affecting pets. When you bring your animal to us, we examine it to identify the root cause of the condition and determine whether or not laser therapy will help.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy works by directing infrared radiation to damaged or diseased tissues and accelerating the body's ability to heal naturally. There are two types of laser therapy: cold laser therapy and hot laser therapy. Cold laser therapy is used to treat the skin's surface, while hot laser therapy treats deeper tissues. This treatment method does not have any adverse side effects, unlike other methods such as using medication and surgery. Pets also do not need sedation or recovery time after laser therapy. We combine laser therapy with other treatment options to ensure a pet has an optimal recovery.
Benefits of Laser Therapy for Pets
Our vets understand that laser therapy for pets is one of the best ways to provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, and promote the body's natural healing process. Laser therapy is often used to treat pets with arthritis, injuries, or other chronic problems. Like humans, animals suffer from a wide range of aches and pains as they age. Laser therapy can help treat these geriatric issues.
Conditions Treated Using Laser Therapy
Some of the most common conditions treated using pet laser therapy include:
- Traumatic injuries
- Chronic arthritis
- Ligament and tendon injuries
- Surgical incisions
What to Expect During a Laser Therapy Session
During a laser therapy session, the pet lies on a flat surface. Our vet then holds a handheld k-laser wand and moves it back and forth over the affected tissue. A session usually lasts for 30 minutes and is a relaxing experience for your pet. How many sessions your pet needs will depend on the type and severity of the condition being treated.
