We strive to do whatever it takes to keep pets happy and healthy. To make that happen, we sometimes need to go beyond routine wellness exams and vaccinations and provide specialized care to help promote healing, ease pain, and enhance comfort. In many of these situations, we rely on the high-tech healing powers of a cold laser. We are thrilled to provide pet laser therapy at select easyvet locations and are excited to share more information about this incredible technology with our clients.
What is laser therapy for pets?
Unlike the cutting lasers that are sometimes used during surgery, the cold laser device used in laser therapy uses light to reduce pain and inflammation and stimulate healing. A focused beam of low-frequency triggers cellular processes deep below the surface of the skin. The process is pain-free and non-invasive and, in addition to boosting the body’s natural healing processes, it causes the release of calming hormones known as endorphins.
