What is LASER Therapy?

LASER therapy is a noninvasive procedure using red and near-infrared light to increase blood circulation and stimulate cell regeneration. Following surgery, LASER therapy may be used to regenerate your pet’s nerve tissue. LASER therapy can also be used to treat chronic injuries, sprains, arthritis, acute injuries, swelling, muscular-skeletal abnormalities, anal gland infections, ear infections, and more. The effects of LASER therapy can last for several months for some pets.

How LASER Therapy Works

LASER therapy is used to heal and stimulate cell regeneration post-surgery or as a treatment for some acute and chronic injuries and chronic illnesses. LASER therapy is a covered cost under some accident-illness pet insurance plans. When shopping for a pet insurance plan, consider looking for an accident-illness plan that covers LASER surgery as it can be a valuable way to provide pain relief and treat specific injuries and illnesses.

Key Takeaways

  • Using red and near-infrared light, LASER therapy stimulates cell regeneration and blood circulation.
  • LASER therapy is noninvasive and can be used to relieve pain and treat injuries and illnesses.
