Pet Laser Therapy

Is cold laser therapy really as effective as it is claimed to be? At Animal Medical Center of Austin, we have seen just how much laser therapy has helped our patients, which is why we are proud to offer it for healing and pain control. With laser therapy, we can more easily treat many acute and chronic conditions that can be uncomfortable, slow to heal, and likely to limit your pet’s quality of life.

What We Can Treat with Our Therapeutic Laser

Laser therapy can be integrated into treatment plans for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Skin injuries
  • Injuries to the tendons, muscles, or ligaments
  • Lick granulomas
  • Injuries to the nervous system
  • Trigger points
  • Arthritis
  • Intervertebral and cervical disc disease
  • Post-operative incisions
  • ...and more
How the Laser Works

Laser therapy works well with other forms of treatment, such as medication and physical therapy, to relieve pain and increase healing. 

To provide treatment, the laser device emits measured pulses of infrared light, which penetrate through the skin and deep into the muscle tissue. The light energy is absorbed into the cells that make up this tissue, causing chemical and physical changes that regenerate cells and repair damaged ones.

The Benefits of Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is non-invasive, drug-free, and painless with no side effects. It provides several major benefits for pets struggling daily with chronic pain, surgery recovery, or acute injury:

  • Decreases inflammation and swelling
  • Increases blood circulation to the affected area and throughout the entire body
  • Accelerates healing of bruised and damaged tissue
  • Reduces pain
  • Increases mobility in patients with stiff, achy joints
When Will I See Results?

Acute conditions are easier to treat. If your pet just had surgery or has a small laceration that needs extra help healing, one treatment of laser therapy may be enough. However, pets with chronic health problems will need to come in for multiple treatments, since their conditions have had more time to develop. Therefore, it will take longer to see results.

I love them!

I have been taking my pets to Animal Medical Center for a couple of years now. All of the techs are wonderful, and we love Dr. Loretta, Dr. Greg, and Dr. Newman. They have all been so wonderfully helpful and caring with my two geriatric dogs, my puppy who had swimmer syndrome and couldn’t walk at six weeks old (Dr. Newman worked a miracle), and my grumpy cat. They are affordable and have hours that accommodate my work schedule. I love them!
