Pet Cold Laser Therapy

At Mobility Matters Pet Rehabilitation in Oakville, ON, we offer pet cold laser therapy as a non-invasive and effective treatment option for various conditions affecting your furry companion’s well-being.

Understanding Pet Cold Laser Therapy

Pet cold laser therapy utilizes non-invasive infrared light directed to tissues beneath the skin to promote healing, reduce pain, and enhance blood flow. During the procedure, a probe is gently held at the skin level, allowing the light to penetrate and stimulate the cells through a process called Photobiomodulation. This stimulates the mitochondria within the cells, triggering the production of ATP, which in turn enhances blood flow and accelerates the healing process.

Benefits of Pet Cold Laser Therapy

  • Pain Reduction: One of the primary benefits of cold laser therapy is its ability to alleviate pain in pets suffering from various conditions such as arthritis, soft tissue injuries, and post-operative discomfort.
  • Accelerated Healing: By promoting increased blood flow and cellular activity, cold laser therapy aids in the regeneration of tissues, leading to faster healing times for injuries or surgical wounds.
  • Non-Invasive and Painless: Unlike some traditional treatment methods, cold laser therapy is non-invasive and painless for pets. The gentle warmth from the laser is often soothing, and pets may even learn to enjoy their therapy sessions.

What to Expect During a Pet Cold Laser Therapy Session

During a cold laser therapy session at Mobility Matters Pet Rehabilitation, your pet will experience gentle warmth from the laser probe as it is applied to the affected area. The procedure is painless, and many pets find it relaxing. 

The Cumulative Benefits of Pet Cold Laser Therapy

It’s important to note that the results of cold laser therapy are cumulative. While some pets may experience immediate relief after their first session, most will require regular treatments to achieve optimal results. Typically, weekly to twice-weekly sessions are recommended to see the full benefits of cold laser therapy for your pet.
