Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it.

Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation," which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation and increased healing speed.

How it works

The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive handpick to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Most treatments take a matter of minutes.

What are the costs?

Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition. Therefore, treatments will vary in time, complexity and cost.

Laser therapy can be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by your veterinarian.
