This low level light therapy is painless to the pet and can be performed on an outpatient basis during a brief appointment even with pet owners viewing the laser treatment of their pet. It does not require the use of drugs or anesthesia to be given. Many times treated pets feel better within 12-24 hours after treatment.
It can be difficult to know if your pet is in pain sometimes due to their stoic nature. If you have noticed that your feline or canine friend is slowing down, having problems getting in and out of cars, slow to go up or down the stairway or furniture, having problems reaching the litter box, or if they seem to be isolating themselves from the family, pain may be the cause. The therapy laser can be used often as an alternative to pain control medication or together with pain medication to help control pain.
