Cold Laser Therapy

Reduce Pain, Reduce Inflammation, Restore Mobility

Cold laser therapy, or Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), is an FDA-approved treatment that uses low levels of light to stimulate healing. The treatment utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process.

  • Helps generate new and healthy cells tissue
  • May significantly reduce bone pain
  • Reduce inflammation and swelling

Cold Laser Therapy is a valuable pain management tool, particularly for older dogs with arthritis who are starting to lose the use of their back legs or those with compromised livers that prevent them from being able to take pain medication. It is a great option for cats as well since there are fewer pain control options considered safe for them.
