Laser Therapy

Does your animal family member suffer from chronic pain? Has a recent surgery or injury slowed your normally active pet down?

Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment modality that uses light to stimulate the body’s natural healing and pain control response. Through this innovative technology, your best friend can enjoy decreased pain, enhanced mobility and shorter recovery periods. It can be used as a standalone therapy or as a complement to other treatment methods.
