Laser Therapy for Dogs & Cats in Herndon
Cold laser therapy for dogs and cats is a noninvasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cells and increase blood circulation. At the correct laser wavelength, pain signals are reduced and nerve sensitivity decreases. The procedure also releases endorphins, or natural painkillers, but it is not recommended for animals that have cancer because the device can stimulate blood flow to cancer cells.

The procedure is based on the idea that light is absorbed into the cells. The process, known as photo-biotherapy, stimulates protein synthesis and cell metabolism, which improves cell health and functionality.
Pet laser therapy can take as little as eight to 10 minutes on a small dog or cat, or about a half hour for bigger dogs with more arthritic areas.
Pet laser therapy can be useful in healing and reducing pain in pets with:
- tendon/ligament injury
- post surgery/dental
- degenerative disk and joint diseases
