Pet Laser Therapy
Oral medication does not have to be the only treatment option if your pet has a painful and/or slow-healing condition. At OrlandoVets, we know that many different factors must be considered before settling on a treatment plan for your pet. Laser therapy is one option that has proven to be versatile and successful in treating a wide range of acute and chronic physical conditions in dogs and cats.

Can My Pet’s Condition Be Treated?
If your pet is in pain, we can help. Pain can have a deteriorating effect on your pet’s quality of life, but they don’t have to spend their days in constant discomfort. We use our Companion therapy laser to improve many conditions with little to no risk of side effects:
- Degenerative disk disease
- Muscle spasms
- Ligament injuries
- Lick granulomas
- Skin wounds and infections
- Surgical incisions (post-op)
- Recovery from orthopedic injury or surgery
Will My Pet Need More Than One Treatment?
If your pet is recovering from a soft tissue surgery, they will likely need only one laser therapy treatment. However, pets suffering from long-term problems such as arthritis or hip dysplasia will need more. Chronic issues are usually deep-rooted, so more time is needed to treat them.
What Makes Laser Therapy Effective?
Laser light does more than generate warmth. It aids in the repair of damaged cells, increases cellular activity, and yields many benefits including:
- Reduced inflammation
- Increased blood circulation
- Tissue regeneration (faster healing)
- Reduced pain
When light particles are absorbed into the body’s cells, this kickstarts a process that increases cellular function, energy storage, and regeneration. Overall, pet laser therapy has an overwhelmingly positive effect on the body and enables it to heal without the use of drugs, sedation, or invasive surgery.
