laser therapy

innovation pain relief for pets

drug free. surgery free. worry free.

Our innovative laser therapy helps your pet recover faster than ever before, so they are back to themselves in no time. The pain free treatment lasts between four and eight minutes and uses infrared light to reduce inflammation, increase healing and significantly reduce pain. Your pet will feel the benefits after just one session, however getting them fully back to themselves may require several treatments.

Pain free

Thousands of clinical studies have proven that laser therapy is effective, safe and causes no side effects. Which is great news for vets and your pet. It gives us a really powerful tool to help reduce pain and gives your pet renewed energy and freedom of movement, so they can get up to mischief again much sooner. The best part is, it doesn’t require them to be restrained or sedated, in fact they often find it comforting as a slight warming sensation works its wonders on the affected area.

The science

During laser therapy, infrared light interacts with tissues at the cellular level, increasing blood circulation and metabolic activity within the cell. This improves the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane and increases the production of cellular energy, causing increased tissue repair. It sounds like magic doesn’t it? When you see your pet happy again, it feels magical too.

FAQs

Has laser therapy been scientifically proven?

Yes, there are thousands of published studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness of laser therapy and it has been used safely for over 20 years.

Will it hurt my pet?

There is little sensation during treatment. Occasionally the treated area may feel sensitive for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment. Cuddles can take care of that though.

Yes, laser therapy is often used alongside other forms of therapy including massage and physiotherapy. It can also be safely combined with any type of medication.
