Laser therapy for dogs employs deep penetrating light to promote a chain reaction known as photobiostimulation. This process helps relieve pain through the release of endorphins, and it stimulates cells to heal at an accelerated rate.
Although improvement is often seen after the first visit, your pet’s condition will influence how often, and long laser therapy is necessary. Treatments vary in length, but most sites require 3 to 8 minutes. Laser treatment are cumulative, so each additional treatment facilitates a greater improvement in your dogs condition. The length and frequency of treatments vary by condition, so allow us to help devise a sufficient laser treatment schedule for your companion.
