The Companion Therapy Laser has been part of pain management and healing at Pet Dominion for several years here in Rockville, MD. It is a dual beam class IV laser that uses gentle therapeutic laser light to increase cellular energy and health to a damaged area. This dramatically speeds healing time and reduces pain and swelling.
This laser is used successfully in the management of chronic pain and stiffness due to arthritis or joint injury. Our vets recommend laser therapy following routine surgeries such as spays and neuters as well as most other soft tissue and orthopedic procedures. We can also use it following the extraction of a tooth. The laser stimulates the immune system, nerve regeneration, and cell reproduction and growth. It is non-invasive, painless and has no side effects. Each treatment lasts between 3 and 8 minutes.
