Laser Therapy

This procedure is a non-invasive treatment and helps in faster healing and reduces scarring.

A Highly Effective and Safe Tool

Laser therapy is a powerful, safe and effective tool that we can use to help our patients enjoy happier, more comfortable lives. This innovative treatment option has been proven to be highly effective in reducing pain and inflammation, improving mobility and speeding the healing and recovery process following surgery or injury. Raintree Pet Resort + Medical Center is proud to offer laser therapy as part of our commitment to providing our clients with the best available options for their animal family members.

What is veterinary laser therapy?

The therapeutic laser uses an intense beam of light to penetrate areas of the body that have experienced injury, trauma or chronic pain. When the laser comes into contact with the target area, the body responds by increasing blood flow and releasing natural healing and pain control hormones. Laser therapy is a noninvasive way to improve the healing process by accelerating tissue repair, improving circulation, and reducing inflammation. This promotes faster healing and reduces scarring.

Laser therapy is a particularly attractive option for animals that may be sensitive to medication, because it is completely drug-free and non-invasive.

    What can I expect if I bring my pet in for laser therapy?

    Our laser treatments are delivered in a quiet, comfortable environment where your pet will feel safe and at ease. Laser therapy does not cause any pain, so you needn’t worry about whether your loved one will be uncomfortable during a treatment session. In fact, the process can be quite relaxing – so much so that some animals have been known to take a peaceful nap during a session.

    Treatment programs are tailored to each individual pet’s medical condition. The number and frequency of treatments will be based on your pet’s needs and response. Our professionally trained staff will customize a treatment plan specifically for your companion. Most treatments take only minutes to complete, yet results can often be seen almost immediately.
