Does Pet Laser Therapy hurt my pet? What does a treatment feel like?
There is little or no sensation during pet laser therapy. Occasionally the pet feels mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
Are there any side effects or associated risks?
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take?
The typical treatment is 3 to 9 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
How often should my pet be treated?
Acute conditions may be treated daily or several times weekly, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, tapering to once a week or once every other week, with improvement.
How many treatments does it take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions 1 to 6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 10 to 15 (or more) treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
How long before the results are felt?
You may notice improvement in your pet’s condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not notice improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often noticeable after 3 or 4 sessions.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?
Yes! Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of therapy, and even following surgery. Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
