Pet Laser Therapy
A non-invasive holistic treatment.
Lehigh Valley Animal Hospital now proudly offers cold laser therapy at both of our convenient locations. Also known as low-level light therapy, the specific wavelengths of laser light facilitate circulation and healing by stimulating light-sensitive elements within soft tissue cells. Increased circulation reduces inflammation and pain, decreases healing time, and can treat a vast array of conditions.
How does pet laser therapy work?
Laser therapy uses deep penetrating beams of the light to alter cells and the tissue that surrounds them. When the light penetrates the body’s cellular components, it stimulates the targeted cells and promotes healing. Perhaps most importantly, though, laser therapy is entirely painless.
Whether your dog is struggling with post-surgical pain or they’re simply getting older, laser therapy can help them live their very best life. Treatments are relatively quick and can be easily integrated with traditional medical procedures and other holistic practices like acupuncture, reiki, and hydrotherapy.
What conditions can laser therapy treat?
Laser therapy can help treat a number of chronic and acute conditions in dogs including:
- Arthritis and inflammation
- Lacerations and burns
- Hip dysplasia and osteoarthritis
- Skin conditions and infections
- Fractures, sprains, and strains
- Gingivitis and tooth extraction pain
- Wound healing and post-surgical pain relief
