What is Laser Therapy?
The word laser is actually an acronym that stands for light amplification of stimulated emission of radiation. In practical terms, laser therapy has to do with using a focused beam of light to elicit healing in the body. Laser therapy has been successfully used on a variety of afflictions affecting humans, and now laser therapy is also available for your beloved pets.

What Medical Conditions Can Laser Therapy Treat For Pets?
All healing begins at a cellular level. doctorVet laser therapy uses near infrared light to provide increased blood flow and increased oxygen to cells, which results in cellular bio-stimulation. doctorVet treatments have been shown to increase activity and improve mobility. doctorVet is non-invasive, soothing to the patient, and can provide solutions for:
- CHRONIC and Acute PAIN MANAGEMENT
- WOULND HEALING
- POST SURGICAL HEALING
- ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY RECOVERY
- SOME CHRONIC INFECTIONS
- REDUCTION IN SWELLING
- RELIEF AND RECOVER FOR SPRAINS AND STRAINS
How many treatments are needed, and how long do they last?
The diagnosis and condition determines the number of treatments needed. For chronic pain conditions (arthritis, hip dysplasia, etc.) patients may receive 6 treatments over a 3 week period, then more infrequent visits for maintenance. Most sessions last less than 5 minutes per site treated.
