Laser therapy is drug-free, non-invasive and painless procedure for your pet. At Sarasota Animal Medical Center we have been using cold laser therapy for over five years with very good success.
Therapy lasers have been scientifically proven to be successful in relieving post-surgical pain, as well as many acute and chronic conditions. With veterinary cold laser therapy, we are able to manage pain, speed the recovery of wound-healing, and treat muscle, tendon and ligament injuries.
Cold laser therapy has been in use in the human medical field for over 30 years and is finally being used more routinely in veterinary medicine. It is a very safe and effective tool to use on animals and is completely painless.
Cold laser therapy works by stimulating cells to increase circulation, decrease swelling, and speed healing of damaged tissues. The laser also stimulates the release of endorphins, which cause a decrease in pain for pets and people alike.
We frequently combine laser therapy with acupuncture and/or veterinary orthopedic manipulation to successfully treat a variety of conditions including arthritis, neck and back injuries, and knee injuries.
