Providing Effective Healing with Pet Laser Therapy
Does your pet have trouble taking medications, or do they simply need something more to relieve their pain and help them regain their zest for life? Texoma Veterinary Hospital is extremely proud to offer cold laser therapy as a treatment option for dogs and cats of all ages. Pet laser therapy uses soothing warmth and the healing power of light energy to restore comfort and mobility in our patients.
A Step-by-Step of How It Works
Pet laser therapy heals at the cellular level. This means that during treatment, light energy is absorbed and “metabolized” by the cells of your pet’s muscles and connective tissue.
During this process:
- The handheld device connected to our laser system directs pulses of light energy at the affected area.
- Light particles safely penetrate the skin and go deep into the muscles and tendons where damage is present.
- The cells absorb and metabolize these light particles, producing the energy needed to generate new, healthy cells.
What Can Laser Therapy Achieve?
The most notable benefits of laser therapy include:
- Pain and swelling reduction
- Increase in tissue repair and cell growth
- Greatly increases new capillary formation, helping wounds heal faster
- Stimulates trigger points in the muscles to relieve pain
- Improves nerve function
Acute and Chronic Conditions that Benefit from Laser Treatment
Our therapeutic laser is a great tool for treating a variety of problems, including:
- Lick granulomas
- Degenerative disc disease
- Back pain
- Ligament injuries
- Surgical incisions
- Soft tissue injuries

- ...and much more
Virtually any situation where your pet is experiencing pain, swelling, and difficulty healing can be effectively managed with our laser technology.
Will My Pet Need Multiple Treatments?
Whether or not your pet needs multiple treatments depends on the condition that is ailing them. Chronic issues have had time to progress and will likely require several treatment sessions. Acute issues, on the other hand, may take only one session to treat. When you consult with your veterinarian about your pet’s needs, they’ll let you know what to expect.
