Our therapy laser provides a deep-penetrating light that allows relief of pain by releasing endorphins and stimulation cells to heal faster. Your pet will relax and enjoy the pain-free treatments.

Pet Laser Therapy with Dog BuddyWhat Is Low Level Laser Therapy?

Low Level Laser Therapy is a form of phototherapy where monochromatic and coherent light is applied to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing. It is used to augment the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation, and provide pain relief. LLLT is non-invasive and does not require shaving the animal's fur. It is administered through a 9-diode applicator directly over the area of injury or pain. It is non-painful and there are currently no known negative side effects of treatment.

LLLT is a surgery-free, drug-free, non-invasive treatment to relieve pain. It accelerates the body's natural healing process. Low Level Laser Therapy is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute conditions, and post-surgical pain and inflammation in pets. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds or simply aging, laser therapy has been shown to provide relief and speed healing.
