Laser therapy

Laser therapy is the non-invasive use of light energy to generate a photo-chemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue.  

Laser creates pain relief, reduces inflammation and accelerates tissue repair.  It also stimulates cell growth and improves circulation.

Class IV lasers emits monochromatic red light at 980nm (nano metres) wavelength (red).

Super pulsed multi radiance lasers use red, infrared, ultraviolet and blue light at 3 wavelengths: 660nm, 875 nm and 905nm.  This achieves great tissue saturation with NO increase in thermal temperature (i.e. no tissue damage).

What does treatment involve?

It is generally very relaxing!  Your animal will sit or lie down quietly for 10-20 minutes while the treatment is administered.  Most animals really enjoy the treatment. 

Dr Kathy and Dr Caroline treat dogs and cats regularly with laser therapy, often in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.

What conditions can laser be used for?

Laser is useful in the treatment of a multitude of conditions, especially where there is inflammation or infection.  Here is a non-exhaustive list:

  • arthritis
  • hip dysplasia
  • spinal injury
  • ligament damage 
  • skin infections
  • wound healing (including post operative healing)
  • Westie lung disease (pulmonary fibrosis)
