Laser Therapy

Pet Laser Therapy in Chapel Hill

What can my pet expect during a laser therapy treatment session?

As the laser is administered, your pet will relax and enjoy the treatment. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experiences will dissipate.

Frequently, after therapy, we hear: “He’s acting like a puppy again” or “She can actually jump onto the chair again.”

Dogwood Veterinary Hospital & Pet Resort is excited to offer our clients Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive treatment which is used in a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols. Relief and improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet’s response. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your pet can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain, reducing inflammation, and accelerating the healing process.

Applications for laser therapy include:

  • Treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, or hip dysplasia
  • General pain management (sprains, strains, and stiffness)
  • Post-surgery pain (spays, neuters, declaws, and other surgeries)
  • Skin problems (hot spots, lick granulomas, infections)
  • Dental procedures
  • Fractures and wounds (bites, abrasions, and lesions)
  • Ear infections

How does it work?

Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.
