Laser Therapy Treatment

 

 

Twin Peaks Veterinary Center is proud to offer laser therapy for painless, non-invasive, and fast relief from a wide variety of veterinary conditions.

A laser therapy session generally lasts around 2 to 4 minutes. During the session, your pet rests in a comfortable position. One of our veterinary technicians will hold a wand-like device over the target treatment area. Laser beams are emitted from the head of the device and sent deep into the injured tissues.

While you can expect to see positive benefits even after just one session, we often recommend multiple sessions for maximal outcomes depending on your pet’s specific needs. Pet parents frequently tell us that over time their animals need less or even no pain medication, and exhibit greater function and quality of life overall.

Class IV (Laser Treatment)

Twin Peaks Veterinary Center is proud to offer Class IV Companion Laser Therapy to our patients. Laser therapy is a safe, painless, and progressive option for the treatment of pain and inflammation in pets. The laser uses specific wavelengths of light to reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and stimulate healing cells.

Laser therapy is fast, usually taking somewhere between 2 and 4 minutes. Therapy is painless, and sometimes even enjoyable, as we often have a warm, comforting sensation at the site of the treatment. There are absolutely no known negative side effects to using the laser. Most patients see results after the first one to three treatments. In many cases, we are able to reduce or eliminate completely, the need for additional pain medications.
Understanding Laser Therapy

Class IV laser therapy (also known as cold laser therapy) is an advanced therapeutic technology used on humans and animals. It works by directing light beams at certain tissues in the body. By interacting with these tissues, laser therapy speeds up cellular metabolism, enhances cellular re-organization and repair, and increases local circulation.

Class IV laser therapy is non-thermal, so it doesn’t produce any heat. It’s virtually painless and side effect free.

The Benefits of Pet Laser Therapy for Your Cat or Dog

Thanks to its ability to affect a variety of metabolically- and hormonally-driven biological processes, laser therapy helps your injured dog or cat by:

  • Reducing swelling
  • Decreasing inflammation
  • Decreasing pain
  • Controlling scar tissue formation
  • Accelerating the rate of tissue healing

Conditions Treated with Laser Therapy

The type of laser used in this technique has a long wavelength and a low frequency. This allows it to deeply penetrate tissues at and below skin level. Our team uses laser therapy to help pets recovering from:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Ligament sprains
  • Hot spots and other inflammatory skin lesions
  • Ear infections
  • Post-surgical pain
