Bellaire Laser Therapy for Pets

Class IV Laser Therapy Promotes Healing

As a part of our pain management program at Southwest Animal Clinic, we are happy to offer Class IV laser therapy for your pets. Laser therapy is a great option outside of traditional drug regimens. It has been shown to promote healing in many parts of the body, reduce inflammation, and mitigate pain.

Class IV lasers are the highest-powered lasers available for pain management and treatments, which means your pet will spend less time under the beam than with other laser treatments. If your pet has a condition that requires ongoing pain management, or if they’ve recently suffered an injury or had surgery, laser therapy at Southwest Animal Clinic might be right for you.

How Laser Therapy Works

By using light energy, therapeutic lasers stimulate faster healing in the targeted areas of the body. A single wavelength of concentrated light penetrates the body’s tissues to cause change at the cellular level, giving your pet’s cells a boost while they heal their body.

Laser therapy is completely pain-free and non-invasive, a huge benefit to a pet who might already be suffering from pain. It’s also a great option for pets with limitations as to what kind of pain treatment they can receive.

Laser therapy can help treat the following conditions:

  • Broken bones
  • Degenerative bone disease
  • Dental procedures
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Lick granuloma
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sprains
  • Wounds

Any of the above conditions are great candidates for laser therapy. If your pet is suffering from any of these conditions, our Bellaire veterinary team may recommend laser therapy as another option for your pet. Because laser therapy is safe to use in conjunction with other treatments, like medicine, you should consider using laser therapy as an addition to your pet’s pain management program. Additionally, if you find that other forms of pain management aren’t enough, laser therapy can be a great addition and provide relief to your pet.

What Happens During My Pet’s Laser Therapy Session?

We’ll have your pet lie down and get comfortable before we begin the session. You’re welcome to stay in the room while we treat your pet, especially if it keeps your pet comfortable. Everyone in the room will need to wear goggles to protect your eyes – yes, even your pet! We use a handheld device to direct the laser at the part of the body that needs the treatment for three to eight minutes. There’s no recovery time involved with laser therapy, so you and your pet can go home right after the procedure.

If your pet needs pain relief, don’t wait. Call (713) 903-8818 or contact us online so that you can get your pet feeling better faster.

Happy, Healthy Pets
