Pet Laser Therapy Offers a Drug-Free Alternative to Pain Management
Does your pet have arthritis or any other debilitating condition? If so, we can help. Greenland Veterinary Hospital is proud to use Companion® laser therapy, the latest in chronic pain and inflammation treatment.
How Laser Therapy Helps Your Pet
Laser therapy provides a non-invasive way to treat pain and inflammation while restoring mobility and function for your four-legged friend. It can also heal cells to help your pet recover faster, easier, and with less pain. It works by using concentrated light energy harnessed in a handheld device. Our trained technicians hold the device over your pet’s affected area and the light penetrates deep into their tissue. There, it activates cellular production and other physiological effects that help to speed up healing and reduce pain and inflammation.

Frequency of Treatment
The length and frequency of each treatment with vary based on several factors including your pet’s condition, their coat color and thickness, and their response to treatment. A typical session lasts from 10-30 min. Chronic conditions generally need longer and more frequent sessions to see results, while injuries, wounds, and post-surgical recovery only need one or two shorter sessions. We’ll talk with you in-depth about your pet’s treatment plan so you can know what to expect.
