Laser Therapy for Pets

Laser Therapy for Pets

Laser therapy is a common treatment used in pets for alleviating pain and distress. Our hospital is happy to provide this effective and pain free treatment to your fur friends. This form of treatment is favoured as it is minimally invasive, does not require surgery and is drug free.

What conditions can laser therapy treat in pets?

At Valley Veterinary Services we may recommend laser therapy if your pet has any of the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Surgical wound healing
  • Nerve function and reconstruction
  • Strains and sprains
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Kidney stones
  • Feline acne
  • Hair loss
  • Allergies

  • How is laser therapy performed in pets?

    Laser therapy uses cold or low-level light beams aimed at targeted regions of your pet’s body. The light is used at varying frequencies to replenish energy in the cell, reduce inflammation and decrease pain transmission. Laser therapy is often referred to as a jumpstart to healing in the body.

    Is laser therapy painful for pets?

    The procedure is completely painless. Our veterinarians can work with you to determine how many treatments your pet needs. Your pets will receive the best care as their health is our top priority. To protect pets we usually provide protective sunglasses during the procedure. We encourage you to call us at 604-858-6560 for more information about laser therapy for your pet.

Dear Clients,

Our first and foremost priority remains the health and safety of our clients and staff, while maintaining our high standard of quality veterinary patient care. We have all experienced the unpredictability of this pandemic and feel strongly that adopting a cautious strategy is in the best interest of keeping everyone as safe as possible.

Our plan going forward will be to start slowly.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time. However, if you’re unsure whether your pet needs medical attention, please call us to discuss your situation.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday to Friday: 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Saturday: 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Sunday: Closed

4. Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the “Online Consultation” link.

We will continue to keep you advised of each step of our process as we move forward to a tentative full reopening in a few short weeks. We are so excited to start this reopening plan and can't wait to welcome ALL of you back into the clinic.
