Pet Laser Therapy Treatment
Our animal hospital in West Knoxville offers cutting-edge pet laser therapy to help heal injuries and treat painful conditions. Pain management is one of our highest priorities when treating pets, because pain can have a severe effect on their well-being. By alleviating pain, your pet can enjoy a better quality of life and spend more time with you.
How Our Therapeutic Laser Works
Laser therapy involves using concentrated light beams at specific frequencies to repair damaged cells and improve healing. The laser light is emitted through a handheld “wand” device, which is gently massaged over areas needing treatment. The laser emanates a subtle warmth that can be very soothing for pets. When applied, the light particles safely penetrate the soft tissues and interact with muscle and connective tissue at the cellular level in a process known as “photobiomodulation.”
The primary goal of pet laser therapy is to repair damaged tissue, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve blood circulation.
