How does it work?
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. At the skin surface, non-thermal photons of light are administered deep into the body using a silent hand held probe. The injured cells are stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism and they release ATP energy that is needed to repair and rejuvenate injured tissue.

What will my pet experience during a laser therapy session?
Your pet will relax and enjoy the treatment. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to remain comfortable. Remember, there is no frightening sound or vibration felt, only the soothing warmth of the laser probe. Your pet won’t even know that regenerative energy is being delivered deep into their painful or inflamed areas.
What are some signs that my pet might need laser therapy?
- Abnormal sitting or lying posture
- Circling multiple times before laying down
- Whining, groaning, or other vocalizations
- Limping or weakness
