Is your pet in pain? Did he or she recently undergo surgery or suffer an injury?
For decades now, doctors of both human and animal medicine have been leveraging the power of laser technology as a drug-free, non-invasive way to treat a wide variety of ailments and injuries in patients. Laser therapy uses light technology to painlessly penetrate areas of the body that have been injured or are experiencing pain. As part of our commitment to always offering the best available options in animal health care, Del Mar Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer therapeutic laser treatments.
What is laser therapy?
During a laser therapy session, the doctor uses a small, handheld device, which emits an intense beam of light. The laser causes a cellular response in the area of the body being targeted, which triggers natural healing and pain-relief. This therapy option can be used to effectively manage pain, improve mobility and speed the healing process following surgery or injury.
Will laser therapy hurt my pet?
The laser produces absolutely no sensation when applied to the body, making it a completely painless procedure. In fact, most patients find the process to be incredibly relaxing. This is a great alternative to other, more invasive treatment options, such as surgery. It can also produce amazing results after just a few treatments.
How much does laser therapy cost?
Just as every pet is unique, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to laser therapy. Therefore, the cost, duration, and length of each treatment plan will vary based on each specific situation. Once your pet has been evaluated, we will provide you with a detailed treatment plan recommendation, which will include all the information you need to make an informed decision.
