Laser Therapy

Safer Pain Relief with Laser Therapy for Dogs & Cats

Laser therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that uses red and near-infrared light to stimulate pain relief and healing in dogs and cats. Sometimes called cold laser therapy, it actually generates warmth that helps pets relax during their therapy. Pain relief with laser therapy is often a popular option, especially for pets who are unable to take traditional pain medication due to certain illnesses or contraindications with other medications. At Pennsylvania Veterinary Care, we put a strong emphasis on pain relief in dogs and cats. With laser therapy and our other regenerative medicine options, we hope to make pain relief safer and longer-lasting for our furry friends

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy uses a process called photobiomodulation. This long word refers to the use of light energy to stimulate certain physiological changes that facilitate faster healing and pain relief. The laser is a small hand-held device that we hold over your pet’s affected area for a certain amount of time. The light penetrates deep into the damaged tissue and causes:

  • Increased cell production that helps to speed up healing
  • A release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain killers
  • Increased blood circulation, which helps to reduce inflammation
