Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free therapeutic option for your pet.

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.

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.
