Pet Laser Therapy from Our San Antonio Veterinarians

Laser Therapy for Pets Reduces Pain and Speeds Healing

Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, painless and drug-free treatment appropriate for a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols.

Improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet’s response. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds or simply aging, your pet can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.

Applications for Laser Therapy Include:

Treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, or hip dysplasia
General pain management (sprains, strains, and stiffness)
Post-surgical pain (spays, neuters, declaws, and other surgeries)
Skin problems (hot spots, lick granulomas, infections)
Dental procedures
Fractures and wounds (bites, abrasions, and lesions)
Ear infections

How does it work?

Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body for about 3 to 8 minutes and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.

What are the signs that my pet can benefit from Laser Therapy?

Many of our laser therapy patients are older animals with musculoskeletal ailments. Some signs that your senior companion is experiencing pain or discomfort are:

Abnormal sitting or lying posture
Circling multiple times before lying down
Whining, groaning or other vocalizations
Limping, unable to get up or lie down
Difficulty getting into car or down stairs
Lack of grooming
Won’t wag tail
Licking or biting area
Lack of appetite

How do I find out if it’s right for my pet?
If your cat or dog has limited mobility or suffers from chronic pain, laser therapy might help. Talk with us during your pet’s next physical exam - or schedule an appointment right now to discuss the treatment.

Is it really safe?
The FDA has approved class IV laser therapy for use in humans and animals. It is painless, non-invasive and non-addictive. Friendship takes appropriate precautions and provides specialized eyewear to protect the eyes of the patient, viewer and operator.
