If you’re not familiar with the process of pet cold laser therapy, then it may sound like an intimidating treatment. We understand the hesitation, especially when it comes to caring for your dogs, cats or other pets. The truth is cold laser therapy is a quick, safe and effective way to provide pain relief.
It does not require any type of invasive surgery or medication. Cold laser therapy is meant to kick start the healing process while also relieving pain symptoms.
How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?
Unlike with other surgeries, the lasers used in this therapy are not meant for cutting. Instead, the lasers foster non-thermal photons of light which can stimulate the cells when applied to your pet’s body.
These photons trigger the healing properties in the tissue, promoting cell regeneration and collagen production. In just a short session, your pet will feel relaxed as their pain symptoms will dissipate.
The best part is cold laser therapy keeps helping even after treatment. It boosts the body’s natural healing process while alleviating pain at the same time.
What are the Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy?
The overarching argument in favor of cold laser therapy is it actually will encourage the natural healing process instead of only masking the pain symptoms. Pet owners which have have tried cold laser therapy have reported the recovery time for their pets is a lot quicker when compared to more invasive surgeries.
