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.
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.
