What is Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy is a non-invasive treatment using specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the bodies natural ability to heal. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased swelling.

Laser Therapy has been widely utilised in the human field by physiotherapists,chiropractors, doctors & nurses since the 1970s and has recently been approved by NICE. We were so impressed with the results of our trials that we were the second veterinary practice in Wiltshire to make it available for your pets in July 2015

How does it work?

During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.

The laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.

Will it hurt my pet?

There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally, your pet may feel a little warm & sleepy.
The sleepiness may last for a day, especially after the first treatment, due to relaxation and increased healing.

What if my pet is on medication?

Laser Therapy is a safe procedure which may be used in conjunction with conventional and alternative medicine.
Laser Therapy may help to minimise the requirement for other medications. This can be especially useful if medications are producing undesirable side effects.

How long will it take?

Each area to be treated will last between 2 and 7 minutes, depending on the size and depth of the tissues being treated.

Multiple areas are often treated in one session. Although improvement may be seen after the first visit, for most conditions, particularly those involving muscular skeletal areas, improvement can take 3 sessions and is cumulative. See the K Laser website www.myklaserpet.com

All our family would like to thank all the staff involved for looking after our cat Marble during her Laser sessions!

A 10 yr old injury finally healed up in such an awkward place under her arm! Btw, Marble is the grand old age of 16! I’d say she’s used up a fair quota of her 9 lives! Lol x
