A veterinarian on our veterinary team can use this type of therapy for inflammatory conditions. It can be used along with regular medical treatments to provide pain relief to conditions like arthritis and injuries to tendons and soft tissue. It might also be used to help treat wounds to help them heal better. If you think your pet might benefit from cold laser therapy, call our animal hospital in Northwood, NH, to see a veterinarian on our veterinary team.

Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is largely safe for pets, and it can be an effective treatment. It can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, injuries, and diseases. This type of therapy can help allow the pet's muscles to relax. It can help make the pet heal faster by building up blood flow. If a pet has swelling and redness, this treatment can be effective for both. Your pet won't need to be sedated to get this therapy and won't have to take any medications as a part of it. Your pet also won't have to lose any fur to get this treatment.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
This treatment uses light from a laser. This light is at a very low level. The photons in the light can be used for healing in many areas of the body. This treatment is easy for the pet to receive, and there are few side effects. In fact, it often has a relaxing effect on pets. A member of our team can provide this treatment to pets in a short session. A member of our veterinary team will take a handheld laser and wave it over the area that is injured. Everyone will wear protective glasses to protect their eyes during these treatments. If you have more questions about cold laser therapy, calls us.
