Pet Laser Therapy
Pet Laser Therapy has been providing beneficial effects on pets for decades and is being offered by more and more veterinary hospitals every year, including Angel Animal Hospital. We use Companion Therapy Laser, the #1 laser therapy unit in the veterinary market, as a pain management tool for our patients. This FDA-approved modality uses an intense beam of light to safely, painlessly penetrate tissue to stimulate healing without the need for physical tools or medication. It is commonly used after surgery and for general pain relief for pets of all ages and health conditions.
About the Pet Laser Therapy Session
During a standard laser therapy treatment at Angel Animal Hospital, the only requirement is for your pet and anyone in close proximity to the laser to wear protective eyewear. There is no need for sedation or clipping. One of our trained veterinarians will then deliver the laser light using a non-invasive device, which creates a deep, soothing sensation for your pet. This usually leaves pets in a state of relaxation and can even cause pets to fall asleep. In some cases, pain relief occurs in a matter of seconds. However, in other cases, relief may take longer or require more treatment sessions.
