Offering Laser Therapy for Dogs & Cats in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset
Laser therapy is an integrative modality that provides pain relief and increased healing to our animal patients. The procedure is non-invasive, drug-free, and quite comfortable, as it produces a subtle warmth while treatment is being administered. Pet laser therapy uses light at varying wavelengths to stimulate the body's own natural healing processes. This involves exposing the patient to different wavelengths of red and near-infrared light, which are absorbed through the skin and deep into muscle and bone tissue. The photons, or light particles, are metabolised by the body's cells, stimulating cell repair and production.
Many different physical conditions can be improved with the aid of this therapy, and in some cases, only one laser session is required to achieve the desired effects of reduced pain, reduced inflammation, accelerated healing, and increased circulation. Pets with chronic conditions, like arthritis or hip dysplasia, will need a series of appointments, as the results of laser therapy are cumulative and can provide greater relief with each subsequent treatment.
Schedule a consultation with us today to discuss whether laser therapy is a good option for your pet.
