Western North Carolina is a place with people who love their dogs and pets.  Whether you were in Asheville, Hendersonville, Weaverville, Mars Hill, or Arden, wherever you go, it is common to find people with their pets out and about. We have thousands of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, so it is no surprise that people love to go places with their furry friends and family. However, your dog or cat will age more quickly than you want them to. As they move into adulthood and their senior years, they will likely begin showing signs of pain and discomfort. Their pain may make you feel helpless, but there are potential solutions to help them feel better.

One such option offered by the expert team at Avery Creek Pet Hospital is cold laser therapy. While the term laser therapy may sound scary or disconcerting, it is a safe and non-invasive method of helping your dog or cat feel better and find relief from pain. Here is what you should know about cold laser therapy.

How Laser Therapy Can Help Your Pet Find Pain Relief

Laser therapy is meant to help jumpstart the very natural process of photobiomodulation. Photobiomodulation refers to a chemical reaction that helps release endorphins to relieve pain in your dog and increase the rate at which cells are generated to promote healing. This is a helpful treatment your trusted veterinarian may recommend for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Your dog is dealing with arthritis or hip dysplasia 
  • Your dog is limping or sitting in an unusual manner due to pain
  • Your dog has incurred a serious injury
  • Your dog is recovering from a surgery
  • Your dog has pain in their jaws or gum or dealing with gingivitis 
  • Your dog has recurring ear infections 
  • Your dog is suffering from a degenerative disc disorder

Laser therapy is absolutely safe and scientifically proven to help reduce pain. It can be an excellent option your vet may recommend.
