The beneficial effects of laser light on tissue were first recognized almost 40 years ago.  Thousands of studies have been done since then documenting the positive effects this therapy has on different types of disorders.

Patient Demonstration and Success Stories

What can be treated with laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a sterile, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment.  Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply suffering from painful arthritis issues, the laser has been shown to provide relief and speed healing. It is used to treat a variety of conditions including but not limited to:

  • Acute Conditions
  • Wounds
  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Cuts/ Bites
  • Inflammations
  • Tooth Extraction Pain Relief
  • Sprains, Strains & Fractures
  • Post-Surgical Healing / Pain Relief
  • Chronic Conditions
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Periodontal Disease
  • Lick Granulomas
  • Geriatric Care
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Feline Acne
  • Tendonitis
  • Arthritis

What does a treatment involve?

Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition.  Therefore treatments will vary in time, complexity, and frequency.  When appropriate, laser therapy can be used as a complementary adjunct to other treatment plans.  Laser light is delivered through a non-invasive hand piece to treat the affected area.  Your pet will feel a gentle and soothing warmth.  As the laser is administered, many pets will relax, much like you would experiencing a good massage.  The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety initially experienced will dissipate.

What are the advantages of Laser Therapy?

  • Drug and surgery free
  • Extremely safe with no known side effects
  • Quick and convenient
  • No sedation or restraint required
  • Safe to combine with other medications or other treatments
  • Immediate results: Most treated pets feel better in 12 to 24 hours after treatment
  • Speeds the healing process

How does it work?

The Companion therapy laser system sends photons, or packets of light energy, deep into tissue without damaging it.  These photons are absorbed within the mitochondria of the cells and induce a chemical change called “photo-bio-modulation.”  This light energy then inspires production of ATP in the cell.  ATP is the fuel, or energy, cells need for repair and rejuvenation.  Impaired or injured cells do not make this fuel at an optimal rate.  Increased ATP production leads to healthier cells, healthier tissue, and healthier animals.
