Therapeutic Laser for Your Dog or Cat

In 2002, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) cleared veterinary therapeutic laser as a pain management treatment, and the veterinarians and staff of Godspeed Animal Care in Williamsburg, Virginia, have been using the Companion Laser ever since. Because therapeutic laser treatments reduce inflammation and pain, laser therapy is ideal for rehabilitation and post-operative recovery, aiding incision site healing and treating hot spots and sore muscles.

During your dog or cat’s wellness examination, the veterinarian might recommend non-invasive therapeutic laser treatments for your pet particularly if your dog or cat is suffering from arthritis or other chronic pain. You can make the first laser appointment at this time. Keep in mind that you are able to be with your animal throughout the procedure if you’d like.

During the quick and painless therapeutic laser treatment, our veterinarian simply runs the laser over your dog or cat’s affected area for several minutes. The light from the laser stimulates your pet’s cells, which hastens the healing process. Even though the procedure doesn’t take long, healing continues for up to 24 hours after the treatment. The only side effect of therapeutic laser treatments is a happy pet.

Generally, more than one treatment is necessary, particularly for those animals with chronic pain. Godspeed Animal Care’s veterinarians counsel you regarding the amount of treatments they recommend. To keep the costs of these procedures down, we offer our clients affordable therapeutic laser packages.

Best Vet and Pet Resort in Hampton Roads. I live 45 minutes away and only take my dog here. They are always so friendly and definitely take care of your pet! I always feel like Butter is getting taken care of when I am gone. I highly recommend both Godspeed Animal Care and St. Francis Pet Resort!
