What is Cold Laser Therapy?

What if there was an effective, non-invasive, and drug-free way to treat joint issues like arthritis, tendon and ligament injuries, surgical wounds, and a host of other conditions in your dog?  What if there is a treatment that has absolutely no pain and that they may even like? What about Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold Laser Therapy (CLT) is a relatively new practice in the United States but is gaining popularity as more veterinarians see results. Effective in decreasing inflammation, alleviating chronic or acute pain, and stimulating healing, CLT may be just the thing to help your dog feel better and heal faster.


CLT is also known as LASER LIGHT THERAPY!

How does laser therapy affect tissue?

Therapeutic lasers use light waves of a specific wavelength to cause photobiomodulation, or the alteration of cellular and tissue pathology.  Light absorbed by cellular components stimulates electrons and activates cells to promote growth, proliferation, migration, and repair.  

Laser beams of lower wavelengths are absorbed by superficial tissue, such as skin, whereas beams of higher wavelengths penetrate deeper to muscles and bones.

Laser therapy helps tissue repair by causing the following:

  • Endorphin release
  • Vasodilation, which increases blood flow to bring in oxygen and cells involved in the healing process
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Faster healing and repair



What medical conditions can benefit from Cold Laser Therapy?



  • Chronic arthritis
  • Surgical incisions
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Anal gland infections
  • Burns
  • Chronic pain conditions
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Dental Treatments
  • Ear infections
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Injuries affecting the ligaments, muscles, and tendons
  • Skin lesions and wounds
  • Pets with liver disease who cannot take medications
  • Cats, for whom only a few pain-control medications are approved
  • Older pets with diminished organ function
  • Surgical patients to aid in pain relief and reduce time with postoperative healing

How are laser treatments administered?

During a treatment session, the handheld laser wand is slowly moved back and forth over the damaged tissue, producing a warm, pleasant sensation that most pets seem to enjoy and find relaxing.  Sessions usually last 15 to 30 minutes, with the number of sessions and frequency of treatments dependent on the injury.  Chronic conditions may be treated weekly, whereas surgical incisions and open wounds often require daily treatments.


How many sessions of CLT will my pet need?

Every pet is different and therefore each treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each animal. This means that precisely how many sessions of this non-invasive and painless procedure your furry friend will need will depend on their individual circumstances including the severity of their health problem. Our expert veterinary team will be able to give you an estimation as to how many sessions your pet will need when you bring them to their consultation, but it is important to bear in mind that this number could change.

Each session is entirely painless, straightforward, and requires zero downtime, meaning that you can take your pet home and carry on with life as normal following their treatment.

From Our Visitors

I moved from out of state where my dog was getting laser therapy treatments.  I was so excited to find a veterinarian that would continue therapy on my dog!  Jojo’s arthritis continues to improve and he is not needing as many pain meds.  He is so much more comfortable after getting the laser therapy!
