Laser therapy involves the use of non-thermal light photons, administered on the pet’s body for up to eight minutes. The laser is absorbed by affected cells, which are stimulated to an increased metabolic rate. The results of a treatment session include lessened inflammation and improved circulation. In addition, the laser provides pain relief and helps speed up the healing process.
In a testimonial featured on the clinic’s website, one pet owner describes how his labradoodle, Amelie, had been limping in recent weeks. Under recommendation of a Larchmont veterinarian, Amelie started a series of therapy laser sessions. An improvement in the limp was noticeable after only a few sessions and daily pain killers proved to be no longer necessary.
