Laser Therapy for Dogs & Cats in Westside Atlanta, GA

Pain for dogs and cats is so much more than just uncomfortable. It causes stress, which in turn slows the healing process, meaning your pet is in pain for longer. At The Village Vets of Westside, we use the latest technology and best practices available to relieve pain. While pain medications are extremely effective and safe for short-term use, there is a risk of side effects with long-term use. Enter laser therapy. Laser therapy is a drug-free, non-invasive pain management modality that pets of any age can benefit from, and there are no side effects, no matter how long your pet receives the therapy. We’re pleased to be able to offer this innovative technology to pets of Westside Atlanta, GA!

How Laser Therapy Works

Laser therapy is performed with a handheld device that emits concentrated light energy. This light energy penetrates deep into your pet’s tissue and stimulates cell production, increases circulation, and triggers endorphin relief, all of which result in a reduction in pain and faster healing. A laser therapy session can last from about 5 minutes for post-surgical recovery or minor wound healing, to about 30 minutes for chronic conditions such as arthritis.

The frequency of sessions also varies from about one or two sessions to multiple sessions per week for an extended period of time. Since laser therapy is cumulative, your pet will see longer lasting relief between sessions, so we’ll be able to lessen the number of times they see us to once a week, once every two weeks, and so on.
