At Spring House Animal Hospital, our veterinarians use veterinary cold laser therapy as a non-invasive treatment option for painful inflammatory conditions in cats and dogs in Ambler.
Veterinary Therapeutic Laser Therapy
With veterinary therapeutic laser therapy, we leverage a low-intensity laser or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to help relieve pain, stimulate and enhance the function of cells, and improve healing.
This type of therapy is pain-free and drug-free. It can be performed in conjunction with other treatments. A typical session usually lasts between 5 and 20 minutes.
Numerous conditions have been shown to improve when laser therapy is used. These include muscle spasms, arthritis symptoms, and muscle and joint pain.
