Cat and Dog Laser Therapy in Staten Island, NY

Laser therapy is a painless, safe, and non-invasive treatment we can provide to help increase healing and pain relief in dogs and cats. Many pain-relieving options for pets involve medication, which could put your companion at risk for side-effects or interfere with any medication they are currently taking. Laser therapy gives us an extremely low-risk option to offer your pet, so they have an opportunity to experience greater relief and healing and have a better quality of life going forward.

How Does Laser Therapy Work on Dogs and Cats?

Since laser therapy is non-invasive, you might be wondering how it can improve your pet’s ability to heal and find relief from pain. Simply put, our laser uses photons, which are absorbed into the skin, muscle, and bone. Our Class IV therapeutic laser uses concentrated photon beams to stimulate cellular activity, which generates the desired healing and pain-relieving effects. This process is completely pain-free for your pet; in many cases, it can actually be quite comfortable!

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Laser therapy sessions can take as little as 5 to 10 minutes per treatment, and some of our dog and cat patients may see improvement after 3 to 5 sessions. Acute conditions, such as surface injuries and surgical incisions, might require just one treatment, but chronic issues typically require more sessions for maximum pain relief and healing.
