Laser Therapy for Dogs and Cats in Greensboro
Pain management is critical to any pet’s care when they’re being treated for a serious injury or undergoing a major surgery. Laser therapy is especially beneficial to our patients because it doesn’t carry the risk of side effects that medications do, and is completely non-invasive. At Happy Tails Emergency Veterinary Clinic in Greensboro, NC, we offer laser therapy for dogs and cats as an additional option for pain control, but it also increases healing while decreasing inflammation, swelling, and bleeding.
If your pet needs immediate care don’t hesitate to call us.
How Does It Work?
Laser therapy does not cut like a surgical laser or cause any discomfort or harm to the skin. Instead, the device emits low infrared light that penetrates deep into muscle tissue and absorbs into the body’s cells, inducing a healing effect. Cell activity increases and the healing process accelerates. Pets undergoing laser therapy treatment can experience:
- Improved blood circulation
- Decreased pain, swelling, and inflammation
- Less bleeding (from an injury or surgery)
- Better mobility and more energy
