Class IV Therapeutic Laser for Pets

Clinical studies and real-world use over several decades have proven that laser therapy is effective in treating acute pain, chronic conditions, and post-operative pain by alleviating pain and inflammation, reducing swelling, and by stimulating nerve regeneration and cells involved in tissue repair.

Benefits of Class IV Laser Therapy:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Reduces Pain and has an analgesic effect.
  • Accelerates tissue repair and healthy cell growth.
  • Improves Vascular activity.
  • Increases Metabolic Activity.
  • Activates Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points.
  • Reduces fibrous tissue formation.
  • Improves nerve function.
  • Improves immunoregulation.
  • Promotes faster wound healing.

Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Treatments to deeper tissues are administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Protective eyewear is worn by provider and clients, and protective eyewear or dark cloth is worn by patients during treatment. For chronic conditions, it usually takes a minimum of 3-5 treatments and may require 6-12 treatments before patients exhibit improvement. A maintenance program will be required for pets with chronic to maintain benefits achieved.  Laser therapy utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Despite short treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment.

The laser light is delivered through a non-invasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet will feel gentle and soothing warmth. As the laser is administered, many pets will relax, much like you would while experiencing a good massage. There are no known side effects with this treatment.

The therapy laser system sends photons, or packets of light energy, deep into tissue without damaging it. These photons are absorbed within the mitochondria of the cells and induce a chemical change called “photo-bio-modulation”.   This light energy then inspires production of ATP in the cell.  ATP is the fuel, or energy, cells need for repair and rejuvenation.  Impaired or injured cells do not make this fuel at an optimal rate.  Increased ATP production leads to healthier cells, healthier tissue, and healthier animals.
