What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Veterinary cold laser therapy uses a low-intensity laser or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help stimulate and enhance cell function, relieve pain and improve healing in cats and dogs. 

Many uncomfortable and even inflammatory conditions have been shown to improve with the application of laser therapy including arthritis symptoms, joint or muscle pain and muscle spasms. 

For animals that are unable to receive conventional forms of medical treatment - or certain forms of treatment - cold laser therapy may be a suitable alternative.

If your pet has sustained an injury, undergone orthopedic surgery or suffers from a painful condition, they may be a candidate for this sugar-free, drug-free treatment that is typically low-risk when administered by a trained professional.
