Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is a completely safe, non-invasive, and pain-free treatment modality available for pets. Free from harmful side effects, cold laser therapy provides our patients with a safe alternative to long-term medication use and more! At Valencia Veterinary Center, we highly recommend cold laser therapy treatment sessions for pets who are recovering from surgery, healing from an injury, struggling with chronic pain, or suffering from either acute or chronic medical conditions.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is a holistic treatment that uses a 100% safe cold laser to improve patient outcomes. At a specific wavelength, cold laser light has been shown to activate tissues at the cellular level, triggering the release of enzymes that facilitate a healing response.
Does Cold Laser Therapy Really Work?
Although it might seem hard to believe, cold laser therapy treatment is truly effective. This time-tested therapy has been used medically since the 1970s, and countless credible clinical studies support its benefits.
The Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy for Pets
In addition to having no known side effects and being a scientifically-backed, viable alternative to surgery and medications, cold laser therapy has been shown to:
Canine Rehabilitation Treatment Modalities
Safe for ongoing, repeated use, cold laser therapy is the perfect long-term treatment option for pets suffering from chronic pain and musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis. It’s also incredibly useful for pets who are recovering from surgery or a traumatic injury, as it reduces pain and inflammation while accelerating the body’s healing response.
What to Expect During a Cold Laser Appointment
Cold laser therapy is non-invasive and pain-free, which means pets require zero sedation for these appointments. Before a cold laser therapy session, your pet will be fitted with special goggles to protect their eyes during the treatment session.
To administer treatment, our veterinarian will shine the cold laser onto the targeted location (for example, the joints, injury, or surgical site). Laser therapy appointments typically only require about 15 minutes to complete. Most pets become relaxed during their treatment sessions and experience immediate relief. Pets who return for multiple sessions will enjoy compounding benefits.
