What are Cold Lasers?
Cold laser therapy uses light-emitting diodes (also called LEDs) or low-intensity lasers to stimulate and enhance cell growth, to improve healing and to relieve your pet's pain.
The variety of light which is emitted by a laser is what determines the depth of the tissue which it affects. The higher the wavelength (such as purple, green, or blue light), the deeper into your pet's tissues they penetrate. Inversely, lower wavelengths (like red) will be absorbed by your pet's skin.
The number and frequency of these treatments will depend on your pet's specific healthcare needs.
