Discover laser therapy – a noninvasive treatment meticulously designed to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate the healing process. Embraced as a standard of care in both human and veterinary medicine, our dedicated staff at Vegas Valley Pet Hospital administers this cutting-edge therapy through a handpiece emitting therapeutic infrared light. This drug-free and soothing treatment can address surface wounds and delve into deeper structures, effortlessly penetrating fur, skin, and fat to reach damaged tissue.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
The therapeutic infrared light zeroes in on the mitochondria in damaged cells, sparking a regenerative process known as photobiomodulation (PBM). This stimulation encourages cells to regenerate and return to optimal function, hastening the recovery from injury.
Benefits of Laser Therapy
- Reduces pain and inflammation
- Speeds up the healing process
- Noninvasive and drug-free
- Complements existing treatments
- Often reduces or replaces the need for pain medications
What to Expect During Treatment
Laser therapy sessions are fast, pain-free, and well-tolerated by most pets. There's no need for clipping or shaving the treatment area. When your pet arrives for therapy, they'll be placed in a comfortable position and may wear laser-safe doggles. If you choose to stay with your pet during treatment, you'll receive laser-safe eyewear.
Sessions typically last 5 - 10 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and the condition being addressed. During treatment, your pet will experience a comforting warmth, often inducing relaxation and, occasionally, even sleep.
