What are the Benefits of Veterinary Laser Therapy? 

If you could take a pill, undergo a painful procedure, or have a laser beam applied to a topical injury to manage pain, which treatment would you choose? If you opted for the pain-free laser procedure, think about it: Wouldn't your pet do the same? Cold laser treatment for dogs allows us to control pain and stress in pets, which is especially important as they age. 

Laser therapy is a non-invasive way to promote healing, injury recovery, and pain management in dogs. With regular treatments, your pet will enjoy decreased inflammation and pain. Better still, you won't need to convince your cat or dog to swallow a pill.  

As we apply the laser beam to your dog or cat, the light will pass through the skin and into the cells that are injured. Light from the laser boosts circulation, cleans out toxins, and initiates the recovery process. Treatments run 3 to 8 minutes on average. 

While all of this good stuff is occurring inside your pet's body, your dog won't feel anything from the treatment. Most pets relax and allow us to administer the laser therapy. Because treatment is relaxing and not painful, your pet won't undergo additional stress. 

When to Try Cold Laser Treatment for Dogs

We have successfully used cold laser therapy to treat a range of chronic and acute health conditions in dogs. The staff at our veterinary hospital in Winston-Salem might recommend this therapy for management of chronic pain associated with aging, arthritis, hip dysplasia, muscle sprains, and muscle strains. 

Dogs recovering from joint injuries, orthopedic problems, dog bites, or other wounds also benefit from laser therapy to promote healing. We have even used veterinary laser therapy to treat ear infections!
