Pet laser therapy is a safe, noninvasive, and pain-free method of treatment for your pet. The photons of the laser initiate a photo-chemical response that blocks nerve impulses, accelerates tissue repair, increases circulation, and reduces swelling. This response leads to a reduction in pain and discomfort, speeds healing, and increases mobility and motion in joints.
