Laser therapy is one of our animal hospital’s most cutting-edge treatment options for pets in pain. Until recently, senior pet owners in particular often faced difficult decisions for pets in pain. Sometimes the choice was to weigh the possible dangers and expenses of pet surgery against the heart-breaking possibility of euthanasia. But our Berkeley veterinarian has good news: for many pets (especially senior pets and pets with health problems) laser therapy can give them a new lease on life—with less pain, better function and more energy. Cold laser has been used to alleviate pain from pet arthritis and severe dental problems to skin problems and other painful, inflammatory conditions.
Several things make cold laser therapy a great alternative for many pets. First of all, unlike pet surgery, laser therapy is entirely non-invasive. There are no drugs or anesthesia needed, making it a safe option for at-risk pets. It is also less expensive than surgery, and you can stay right there with your pet through the entire treatment.
