Q. What is Companion Laser Therapy?
A. It is a form of pain management that gives off a laser beam that is directed at the problem site. This beam of light stimulates the tissue and skin cells to grow healthy tissue.
Q. Will my pet need anesthesia?
A. No. Most animals relax while getting their treatment.
Q. How is it given to my pet?
A. The pet lies on the floor, and we do the rest. It is a wand that we take and wave it continually over the problem area for a determined amount of time.
Q. What are the benefits?
A. This technology is the latest for animals that have joint and soft tissue problems. It can dramatically shorten the amount healing time after a surgery or procedure. The treatment may reduce or eliminate the need for injections or oral medications.
Q. What if my pet has a chronic condition?
A. Laser therapy for chronic conditions can require multiple (6-12) treatments to get your pet to a very comfortable situation. Maintenance treatments are then required every 3 to 4 weeks afterwards to maintain the reduced pain and/or mobility.
Q. Will it hurt my pet?
A. No. The laser produces a slightly warm feeling in the inflamed tissue.
Q. How long does it take?
A. Usually one treatment can take anywhere from 3 to 7 minutes.
Q. Do I need to do anything at home?
A. No. Some pets do respond positively to one treatment. The treated site feels better 12 to 24 hours after treatment.
Q. Is it safe?
A. We understand that your pets are your family. We would never subject your family members to anything harmful. Laser therapy has had FDA clearance for over 6 years and is not only used in animal heath but human health as well.
