Laser Therapy for Dogs

Laser therapy is a drug-free noninvasive procedure to reduce pain and inflammation and speed healing. It has been proven to assist with post-surgical pain management and many acute and chronic conditions.

What is therapeutic laser therapy for dogs and what are the benefits?


Therapeutic laser or cold laser therapy is a very safe procedure used in dogs to assist with healing and pain management. It can be used to treat arthritis, lick granulomas and speed post-surgical healing.

Are lasers dangerous for dogs and are there any side effects?


Laser therapy is very safe. All staff performing the procedure are trained in safe use of the laser machine and your dog will be wearing protective goggles that keep their eyes protected from the rays emitted by the laser. There is no harm in the laser touching your dog’s skin directly, however, some temporary soreness can be felt in the area treated after treatment.

What kind of lasers are used on pets?


Here at Sunrise Animal Hospital, cold laser is used.
