Pet Laser Therapy in Racine, WA
What Is Laser Treatment?
Pet laser therapy, performed with other treatment protocols, can’t promote healing through photobiostimulation. By releasing endorphins, this treatment encourages injured cells to heal faster. We offer laser therapy for cats and dogs.
Laser Therapy for Cats
There are three ways laser therapy can help your cat, as follows:
- Vasodilation: Laser therapy for cats reduces inflammation by activating the lymphatic system to drain swollen areas. This may result in relief from inflammation and bruising caused by swollen tissue.
- Nerve cell stimulation: The treatment also may block pain signals from the brain and help your cat stay pain free.
Increased endorphin production: Endorphins are natural painkilling compounds that leave your pet happier and more comfortable.
Benefits of Cat Laser Therapy
There are many benefits to cat laser therapy beyond pain relief. Your cat may experience increased metabolic activity, which can restore energy levels. Additionally, improved nerve function, faster wound healing, and reduced fibrous tissue formation are other benefits of cat laser therapy.
By accelerating tissue repair, pet laser therapy can help your cat overcome chronic or acute conditions. We commonly use laser therapy to treat the following feline conditions:
- Muscle and tendon injuries
- Soft tissue trauma
- Back pain
- Neuromuscular disease
- Ear Infections
Your older cats can especially benefit from laser therapy. As pets age, they often develop musculoskeletal ailments. Suppose you notice a decrease in normal activity, limping, poor grooming habits, and slowness to get up. In that case, you may want to make an appointment to discuss pet laser therapy with our vet.
Laser Treatment for Dogs
Laser treatment for dogs and cats may leave behind a faint tingling sensation. However, your pet will not be in pain. Just like cats, dogs can also benefit from pet laser therapy.
