The Laser Therapy Experience

Non-Invasive and Painless

Laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that does not require sedation or anesthesia. Pets experience the therapy as a painless and gentle treatment, making it a stress-free experience for them.

Customized Treatment Plans

The experienced veterinarians at Northpointe Animal Hospital tailor laser therapy treatment plans to meet the specific needs of each pet. The duration and frequency of sessions are determined based on the pet’s condition and response to therapy.

No Downtime

One of the key advantages of laser therapy is that there is no downtime. Pets can resume their normal activities immediately after a session, contributing to their overall well-being.

Understanding Laser Therapy

Laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes low-level light to stimulate cellular activity. The therapeutic light penetrates the tissues, promoting healing at the cellular level. This process has been proven to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and enhance the natural healing processes in pets.

How Laser Therapy Works

Laser therapy at Northpointe Animal Hospital involves the use of a specialized handheld device that emits low-level light. The therapeutic light penetrates deep into the tissues, stimulating cellular activity and promoting the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. This process not only reduces inflammation and pain but also enhances the overall healing response.

Conditions Addressed by Laser Therapy

Arthritis and Joint Pain

Laser therapy is particularly beneficial for addressing arthritis and joint pain in pets. The therapeutic light helps reduce inflammation in the joints, offering relief from discomfort and improving mobility.

Wound Healing

Laser therapy accelerates the healing of wounds and incisions by promoting cellular regeneration. This is especially valuable for post-surgical recovery or injuries requiring prompt healing.

Muscle and Soft Tissue Injuries

Pets experiencing muscle strains or soft tissue injuries can benefit from laser therapy. The treatment enhances blood circulation, reducing swelling and expediting the healing process.

Dermatological Conditions

Laser therapy can effectively address various dermatological conditions in pets, including hot spots, infections, and allergic reactions. The therapeutic light promotes skin healing and soothes discomfort.
