Laser therapy can treat conditions such as:
- Cuts or bites

- Elderly pets
- Hip dysplasia
Laser therapy has applications all over the body ꟷ the list above is just a small sample of what laser therapy can help treat!

How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy works by using a single wavelength of concentrated light energy to target healing in certain parts of the body. The laser penetrates the body’s tissues to effectuate change at the cellular level, heightening metabolism to promote the healing of the cells of your pet’s body.
Laser therapy is completely pain-free and non-invasive. If your pet has limitations about what kind of medications they can tolerate for pain relief, laser therapy can be a great treatment option. It can also be added into a current treatment plan.
What to Expect During Your Pet’s Laser Therapy Session
When you bring your pet into Veterinary Emergency & Surgery Hospital for their laser therapy appointment, a member of our Exeter veterinary team will have your pet lie down and get comfortable. You’re welcome to stay in the room with your pet as we treat them, though every living creature in the room must wear protective goggles ꟷ yes, even your pet! This is because the laser can damage eye tissues if the eyes are not properly protected. Our Exeter veterinarians will use a handheld device to point the laser at the part of the body needing treatment. A laser therapy session can last as little as 5 minutes, and up to 10 minutes. This speedy treatment has no down time, so your pet can go home with your right after their session.
Your pet could experience immediate relief following their laser therapy session. Some pets require additional treatments before you see results, depending on the severity or complexity of their condition.
If your pet has recently had surgery, or is suffering from a chronic condition, laser therapy is a great alternative to conventional medical treatments.
If you have additional questions about how laser therapy can benefit your pet, please give us a call at (603) 642-9111 or contact us online today.
