Are you aware of cold laser therapy? Just like human beings, cats and dogs experience persistent back pain, arthritis, ear infections and muscle injuries which require urgent medical attention. We use laser therapy to treat these conditions as well as speed recovery from surgery.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is also called low-level therapy (LLLT). It involves applying light wavelengths to interact with injured tissue to enable the pet’s body to heal. We pass a laser over your pet’s skin to allow light energy to penetrate their tissue. The specific wavelengths of laser light interact with receptor on the cells to provide pain relief and promote healing in cats and dogs.
Cold Laser Therapy Procedure
Augusta Animal Clinic has a calm quiet room where your pet lies down on a mat very comfortably. We will treat the affected area with the laser wand which is soothing and comforting. Ordinarily, the session lasts from 5-30 minutes.
