Cold Laser Therapy

Quicker healing and less pain with cold laser therapy

Walton Gwinnett Animal Clinic offers cold laser therapy treatment to increase healing and decrease pain for your pet.

The laser device emits measured pulses of infrared light, which penetrate through the skin and deep into the muscle tissue. The light energy is absorbed into the cells that make up this tissue, causing chemical and physical changes that regenerate cells and repair damaged ones.

We are proud to offer laser therapy for our patients because it is proven to make your pet more comfortable and speed healing after surgery, illness, or injury.

What can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can be integrated into your pet's treatment plan for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Skin or dermatologic injuries
  • Injuries to the tendons, muscles, or ligaments
  • Post-operative incisions
  • Lick granulomas
  • Nervous system injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Trigger points
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Cervical disc disease

Laser therapy is non-invasive, drug-free, and painless with no side effects. It provides several major benefits for pets struggling daily with chronic pain, surgery recovery, or acute injury:

  • Increases blood circulation to the affected area and throughout the entire body
  • Decreases inflammation and swelling
  • Accelerates healing of bruised and damaged tissue
  • Increases mobility in patients with stiff, achy joints
  • Reduces pain

When will your pet see results?

Acute conditions are easier to treat. If your pet just had surgery or has a small laceration that needs extra help healing, one treatment of laser therapy may be enough. However, pets with chronic health problems will need to come in for multiple treatments, since their conditions have had more time to develop. Therefore, it will take longer to see results.
