K-LASER therapy is the painless application of laser energy which promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area.
This helps to create an optimal healing environment which can help to reduce inflammation, swelling, stiffness and pain.
The therapy can be used for a wide range of conditions but is particularly useful in helping to treat osteoarthritis and joint pain. Does it hurt? What can I expect from a treatment session? There is little or no sensation felt during treatment so there is no need for your pet to be sedated or restrained in anyway. Occasionally pets feel a mild, soothing warm or tingling but previous treatments have shown that pets often find the experience pleasant and comforting.
This type of treatment has been used for several decades by healthcare providers all over the world and very few side effects have been reported in this time. On occasion, some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days as the healing response is more active after treatment. How frequently will my pet need laser therapy and what does it cost? The frequency of treatment depends on your pet’s individual condition and current level of pain. Acute conditions may only require 1 or 2 treatments whilst chronic cases may require many more. Your pet may feel an improvement in their condition after the first treatment whilst others will start to feel the benefit after a few sessions. Your vet will be able to assess your pet’s condition and will discuss their individual treatment plan with you. As KLASER therapy is recognised as a vet prescribed treatment sessions are therefore fully redeemable under most standard animal insurance policies.
