Laser Therapy

Over the past several decades, great strides have been made in terms of both the technologies and the treatment options that are available in veterinary medicine. One such advanced treatment option is laser therapy. This innovative treatment modality can be used to treat a broad spectrum of medical conditions and can assist with rehabilitation efforts. Carlsbad Animal Hospital is proud to offer this advanced treatment option to better serve our clients and the animals that they love.

What Is Laser Therapy?

The therapeutic laser is a small, handheld device that emits an intense beam of light to painlessly target certain areas of the body that are experiencing pain or have suffered some type of trauma. The results of laser therapy are often quite dramatic, effectively reducing pain and increasing the speed and efficiency with which healing takes place following injury or surgery. It is painless, non-invasive and offers a solution to a variety of ailments without the need for drugs.

What Can Laser Therapy Be Used To Treat?

It seems we’re discovering new and exciting uses for laser therapy every day. Currently, we can use the therapeutic laser to treat any of the following problems and conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Allergies
  • Infections


  • Inflammation
  • Geriatric Care

How Many Treatments Will My Pet Need?

While the results of laser therapy can often be seen after just one treatment, the number of sessions your pet will require in order to achieve optimum results will ultimately depend on what condition is being treated and your pet’s individual needs. Our experienced doctors at Carlsbad Animal Hospital can advise you on your pet’s specific treatment protocol after a thorough evaluation.

If your pet is in pain from a recent surgery or injury, or suffers from any of the above listed medical conditions, we encourage you to discuss with us whether laser therapy would be a good option for helping them heal and live a more comfortable life. Call us today.
