Laser Therapy

At TangleWilde Veterinary Clinic, one of our top priorities is improving and maintaining quality of life for each of our pet patients. We’re happy to offer cats and dogs treatment with cold laser therapy, an integral part of our pain management, post-surgical, and wellness care programs.
Safe for long-term use and effective right away, laser therapy is a scientifically proven, non-invasive, pain-free, drug-free side effect-free treatment modality. It’s most commonly used to reduce pain, decrease inflammation, and accelerate healing. Cold laser therapy treatment applications, however, are nearly limitless, as cold laser therapy has been scientifically proven to improve most conditions related to chronic pain, inflammatory diseases, injuries, and surgical wounds.

What Is Cold Laser Therapy and How Does It Work?

Cold laser therapy uses laser light at a specific wavelength to trigger healing at the cellular level. A special laser device delivers cold laser light deep into a pet patient’s soft tissues. When the light reaches your pet’s soft tissue cells, it triggers a biological response within the cells. Photo-stimulated tissue cells release chemicals that accelerate the healing process and cellular regeneration.
Cold laser light triggers vasodilation, increasing circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids, which not only decreases inflammation, swelling, and pain, but also facilitates the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to aid in cellular function and healing. In addition, cold laser light provides analgesic pain relief by blocking nerve signals and reducing sensitivity. The stimulation of pressure points also provides relief from musculoskeletal pain.

Can Laser Therapy Help My Pet?

Pets suffering from a range of diseases, chronic and acute conditions, infections, injuries, and more can benefit from laser therapy. Some of the most common conditions managed with laser therapy include:
  • Arthritis
  • Joint disease
  • Allergy-related inflammation
  • Post-surgical pain management
  • Injury recovery
  • Gastrointestinal problems

What to Expect During Your Pet's Laser Therapy Session

Non-invasive and pain-free, laser therapy appointments are simple. Our veterinarian will apply cold laser light to the targeted area of your pet’s body. Most pets experience immediate relief and become very relaxed during treatment sessions.
Since every pet is different, the duration of your pet’s treatment sessions and frequency of appointments will depend specifically on your cat or dog’s condition and response to treatment. Some pets do well after just one laser therapy session, while others with chronic conditions tend to benefit from regular appointments and ongoing care.
