It provides a non-toxic, non-invasive, drug-free and painless treatment which is used to treat a variety of things including injuries, wounds, inflammation, arthritis, skin problems, and general pain. From speeding recovery post tooth-extraction to managing long term arthritis, laser therapy has its place, and your feline companion can benefit from this revolutionary approach to veterinary care.
Frequently Asked Questions
The laser is aimed at the body and produces non-thermal protons. The injured cells absorb these photons and are stimulated to increase their cell metabolism which results in an increase in circulation, decreased inflammation, pain relief, and faster healing time.
This depends on what we are treating with the laser. For surgical pain, we typically laser the incision area once immediately following surgery. For chronic arthritis, your cat may initially receive twice weekly treatments, then come in once a month for follow-up. If we are managing more acute injury or pain, your cat may benefit from 2-3 visits per week for 2-4 weeks. Each case is individual and will be tailored for your cat and you.
