What is Veterinary Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy for dogs and cats uses a low-intensity laser or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help relieve pain, stimulate and enhance cell function, and improve healing.
Cold laser therapy can significantly help reduce swelling and inflammation in your pet and can relieve pain by reducing damage to muscles immediately after an injury, surgery, or heavy exercise. In addition, cold therapy will decrease muscle spasms and lead to faster healing.
Veterinary cold laser therapy can also benefit pets suffering from arthritis or chronic muscle and joint pain.
