Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a noninvasive way to promote healing and alleviate pain by stimulating the release of endorphins and promoting vasodilation and lymphatic flow. This activity brings more blood to the area of concern and flushes out inflammatory mediators and swelling, which allows for accelerated tissue repair. Laser is very versatile and can be used to improve the rate of healing at a surgery site or wound, it can be used to manage chronic pain like arthritis, as well as other inflammatory diseases like stomatitis. Laser therapy is a valuable pain management tool for cats, especially, who have few long term pain control options. Multiple sessions are often recommended for chronic conditions or poorly healing wounds.
