Colorado Springs Veterinary Surgery and Rehab Center is proud to offer laser therapy for pets. Laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain-free, and drug-free treatment that is beneficial for animals experiencing pain and discomfort. At Colorado Springs Veterinary Surgery and Rehab Center, our team uses therapeutic laser to treat a variety of acute and chronic medical conditions including:
- Post-surgical trauma
- Muscle injuries
- Ear infections
- Wounds and lacerations
- Arthritis and joint disease
How Laser Therapy Works
Laser therapy uses deep-penetrating light energy to activate a biological response that stimulates nerve cells and improves blood circulation. This process helps your pet’s body heal itself naturally. We use a sterile, handheld wand during the treatment, which emits a gentle, warm sensation that soothes your pet and helps them relax. The innovative treatment also releases endorphin molecules which help with pain relief.
Just like veterinary acupuncture, therapeutic laser has no side effects and is an effective alternative to drug therapy for pets who don’t respond well to medications. Our team will tailor each laser therapy session to your pet’s specific health needs. Depending on your pet’s medical status, each therapy session will take about 5-10 minutes to complete. Many pets show positive improvement after the first week of treatment.
If your pet is having trouble recovering from surgery, experiencing mobility issues, or suffering from chronic pain, please bring them to Colorado Springs Veterinary Surgery and Rehab Center for a laser therapy session. The treatment can significantly improve their overall quality of life.
