Pain Relief For Dogs & Cats IN NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA

When it comes to providing pain relief for dogs and cats, advances in veterinary medicine have come a long way. Alternatives to pain medications are now boundless and one such option we champion is pet laser therapy. It's a proven treatment that relieves pain and speeds up healing. Blue Cross Pet Hospital in North Hollywood has this innovative therapy available for all of our patients to enjoy.

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy uses concentrated light energy to energize cells in damaged tissue which promotes faster healing. The light energy penetrates deep into the tissue, increasing blood circulation and reducing inflammation and pain. Our skilled technicians operate our pet laser therapy equipment, which includes a handheld device that emits light energy. Our technicians wear protective eyewear, and depending on the location of the treatment and your pet’s curiousness, we have protective eyewear for them, too.

Conditions Treated with Pet Laser Therapy

Laser therapy can help treat a wide range of conditions. We often use it for post-surgery recovery, injury treatment, as well as for relief from chronic conditions. Conditions we may use pet laser therapy for include:

  • Wound healing
  • Sprains, fractures, and breaks
  • Gingivitis
  • Arthritis
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Lick granulomas
  • Hip dysplasia
  • And more

Session Length and Frequency

A typical session can last anywhere from about 5-30 minutes. Both the duration and number of sessions depend on your pet’s condition. Wound repair and post-surgical recovery, for instance, may only require one session for your pet to reap the benefits. Meanwhile, more chronic conditions such as arthritis may need regular sessions once or twice a week. Please make an appointment with our team so that we can discuss your pet’s options and what sort of treatment plan will suit you best.
