Laser Therapy for Dogs

Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules that cause different biological effects including increasing the healing process. We use the Therapeutic laser on all orthopedic procedures, this machine is also used for chronic and acute pain, reoccurring cystitis and wound healing. We have found the therapeutic laser to be very successful in the treatment of spinal injuries and arthritis.

What is therapeutic laser therapy for dogs and what are the benefits?


Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light. Laser light is a very special kind of light. Unlike most light sources, it is tuned to very specific wavelengths. Our Veterinarians and Registered Veterinary Technicians have been trained in order to safely use the Therapeutic Laser and to provide the most effective treatments. Laser Therapy has shown great success and benefits when treating some of the following conditions: osteoarthritis, back pain/injury, hip or elbow dysplasia, post-operative wound healing, trauma or injury (eg. sprains/strains, cruciate ligament tears), reoccurring cystitis.

Are lasers dangerous for dogs and are there any side effects?


Laser Therapy is a very safe form of physiotherapy that can be used on cats and dogs. There are little to no side effects documented with regards to use of the laser.
