Pets suffering from chronic illnesses and injuries benefit from Laser Therapy, because it provides drug-free, pain-free relief. Laser Therapy also reduces inflammation and speeds the healing process.

Pleasant Hills Pet Hospital now offers Therapeutic Laser treatments for our patients. This cutting-edge technology is non-invasive and can be used to accelerate healing for a variety of chronic conditions, such as arthritis. The laser stimulates damaged tissue to regenerate more quickly. It also decreases pain and inflammation by reducing pain signals and increasing local endorphins to make pets comfortable.

Canine Laser Therapy at Pleasant Hills Pet HospitalOften used on arthritic or senior pets, Laser Therapy helps keep pets more comfortable and improves mobility. Arthritis can negatively affect the lifestyle of an older dog or cat, because it limits the senior pet's ability to interact in routine family life. Results are typically seen after 3-4 treatments. Even if other systemic problems are present, such as poor kidney function or metabolic conditions, Laser Therapy is safe for pets.

Laser Therapy treatments can aid in surgical healing and skin infections. Patients undergoing routine surgery will have faster healing times for their incisions and less inflammation. Pets with skin infections will benefit since the therapeutic laser increases blood flow to the damaged area of skin and stimulates the cells to heal.
