Cold Laser Therapy: Advanced Healing for Your Pet

At Vet At Your Door, we're proud to offer Cold Laser Therapy, a cutting-edge treatment that provides pain relief and promotes healing in pets. This innovative therapy can be used independently or in conjunction with acupuncture and the benefits of western medicine to enhance treatment benefits. Oh, and the photo-ops are insane with these doggles (required for laser therapy) seen above on Harbor. 

What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold Laser Therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy, uses specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue, accelerating the healing process. It's a non-invasive, painless, and highly effective way to treat various conditions, including:

  • Inflammation Reduction: Ideal for treating conditions like arthritis and injuries.

  • Wound Healing: Speeds up the recovery of cuts, bites, or post-surgical wounds.

  • Pain Relief: A great option for pets suffering from chronic pain or recovering from injury.

  • Tissue Repair: Stimulates cell regeneration for faster healing.

Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
  • Non-Invasive Treatment: A safe alternative to surgery and medication.

  • No Discomfort: Completely painless, making it ideal for sensitive pets.

  • Quick Sessions: Treatments are fast, typically taking just a few minutes.

  • Versatile Use: Effective for a wide range of conditions.

Frequency of Cold Laser Therapy

The frequency of cold laser therapy sessions can vary depending on several factors, including the specific condition being treated, the severity of the condition, the pet's response to treatment, and the recommendations of the veterinarian. Generally, cold laser therapy treatments can range from:

  1. Acute Conditions: For acute conditions, like wounds or post-surgical healing, treatments might be more frequent initially. Sessions could occur as often as daily or every other day, then taper off as the pet shows improvement.

  2. Chronic Conditions: For chronic issues like arthritis or chronic pain, the initial treatment phase might include multiple sessions per week, gradually decreasing to maintenance sessions that might occur weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

  3. Response-Based Adjustments: The treatment schedule is often adjusted based on the pet's response to therapy. Some pets may show significant improvement quickly, while others might require more sessions to see benefits.

  4. Veterinarian's Assessment: Your vet will assess the pet's progress and make recommendations for ongoing treatment frequency.

It's important to follow the specific treatment plan recommended by your veterinarian, as we will tailor the therapy to best suit the individual needs of the pet. Regular assessments will help in determining the effectiveness of the treatment and any adjustments needed in the frequency of sessions.

Combining with Acupuncture

Sometimes, we combine Cold Laser Therapy with acupuncture for a synergistic effect. This combination can provide enhanced pain relief, reduce inflammation more effectively, and promote faster healing.

The 'One Team Approach' in Laser Therapy

As with all our services, our 'One Team Approach' plays a crucial role in Cold Laser Therapy. Your dedicated consistent team, consisting of a client liaison, technician, and doctor, will perform the first as well as recheck evaluations to assess improvement. The doctor will likely also utilize our amazing Tech Team to perform treatments between doctor visits, allowing you to keep costs lower while also keeping your doctor up to date on your pet's progress.
