Does your pet need relief for their chronic arthritis pain? Can they use some extra help with healing after a major surgery? Laser therapy for dogs and cats is a versatile and drug-free modality that can be safely integrated into your pet’s care. Laser treatment works well in conjunction with other therapies, including medication, and can help to produce even greater effects to maximize your pet’s healing and recovery.

At Broad Ripple Animal Clinic, we want dogs and cats to enjoy pain-free lives as much as possible. Laser therapy can play an important role in restoring your pet to a happier, healthier state.

If your pet is experiencing pain and needs help finding relief, contact us today at (317) 257-5334.

How Does Laser Therapy Work on Dogs and Cats?

Laser treatment works on dogs and cats the same way it works on humans; using low-level infrared light energy to induce healing.

During treatment, we use a handheld device that emits infrared light at a low frequency. This emitted light is absorbed into the skin and muscle tissue, where the tissue’s cells metabolize the light particles. Known as “photobiomodulation,” this process increases the activity and repair of tissue cells.

Is Laser Therapy Uncomfortable for Pets?

Our therapeutic laser does not cause any discomfort for our patients. We calibrate the amount of light your pet will receive during treatment, and our team is well-trained in using the laser equipment. Your pet can expect a subtle, soothing warmth while they are being treated; many patients enjoy this and will calmly sit or lay during their treatment.
