Cold Laser Therapy for Cats & Dogs

Cold laser therapy for dogs and cats uses a low-intensity laser or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help relieve pain, stimulate and enhance cell function, and improve healing.

These laser treatments use light waves of a specific wavelength to cause an alteration of cellular and tissue physiology. Light absorbed by the cell's components stimulates electrons and encourages the cells to promote growth, proliferation, migration, and repair.

Different laser beams reach different cells and promote healing in different ways. Lasers with lower wavelengths are absorbed by superficial tissue, such as the skin, whereas beams of higher wavelengths (such as red or near-infrared) penetrate deeper to muscles and bones.
