What Conditions Can Animal Laser Therapy Treat?

by | Mar 11, 2024 | Medical & Veterinary Equipment Blog

As human healthcare and medical treatments have evolved, so has veterinary healthcare. Animal laser therapy is a newer treatment option that many veterinary clinics are considering adding to their service offerings.

Animal laser therapy is designed to be a non-invasive, painless treatment option that has the potential to treat a wide variety of ailments and conditions. With the power of laser light, veterinarians can reduce inflammation in painful areas, which can help speed up the healing process and ease the animal’s pain. Here are just a handful of conditions and situations that may be alleviated with animal laser therapy:

  • Muscle Sprains – Muscle sprains and strains are common in animals, whether the pet in question is a talented athlete or a slightly clumsy couch potato. Animal laser therapy can effectively target the affected muscle and help ease the discomfort and pain your client’s furry friend is experiencing.
  • Osteoarthritis – This degenerative joint disease is very common in older animals, causing stiff and painful joints. Animal laser therapy can help improve joint mobility and help elderly pets move with less pain.
  • Cuts and Wounds – Whether a pet just underwent surgery or accidentally scratched themselves while playing outside, it’s important to properly treat wounds to reduce the chances of infection or scars. Laser therapy can be used on cuts or abrasions to help encourage healthy tissue to regrow and ease any pain or discomfort in the area.
  • Tendon Injuries – Pulling or injuring a tendon can impact your pet’s mobility and cause a lot of pain. In addition to other treatments, laser therapy can help stimulate the production of collagen around the tendon and help speed up the recovery process.
