Laser therapy is a non-invasive, medication-free treatment we can use to supplement your pet’s pain management or post-op recovery. This remarkable therapy uses concentrated, low-level infrared light to effectively relieve pain and heal injured tissues from the inside out. What’s more, laser therapy for dogs and cats is extremely safe and stress-free for our patients; our doctors and staff in Whittlesea perform these treatments on a daily basis to help pets heal and achieve a better quality of life.
Applications for Pet Laser Therapy
Laser therapy for dogs and cats is an excellent healing tool that we can use for a variety of conditions and situations.
Use of our therapeutic laser right after surgery and possibly a few times in the following weeks can greatly reduce a pet’s healing time. This is especially true for major soft tissue or orthopaedic surgeries, which usually take longer to recover from. Applying the laser to surgical incisions further reduces inflammation and swelling around the site, and accelerates tissue healing.
Treatment of Open Wounds
Certain wounds cannot be sutured and in these cases, we employ laser therapy to help the healing process along. With regular follow-ups to clean and check the wound, we can also take a few minutes to treat your pet’s injury with our laser.
Managing Skin Conditions
Our laser has also proven to be exceptional in the treatment of various skin disorders, including:
- Lacerations and abrasions
- Lick granulomas
- Infectious dermatitis
- Ear infections
- Hot spots
- Insect bites or stings
- Bacterial skin infections
Joint Pain and Rehabilitation
Another notable benefit of laser therapy for dogs and cats is its ability to help reduce inflammation in the joints and assist in physical rehabilitation. It can:
- Improve range of motion and mobility
- Reduce acute and chronic pain
- Give older, arthritic pets a much better quality of life
- Help pets build strength and endurance
- Reduce swelling and inflammation following injury or surgery
