What are the key benefits?

  • Faster recovery and repair

  • Fast reduction in pain level

  • Fast reduction in swelling

Can Laser Therapy help my dog?

Laser therapy can be used across a diverse and wide range of ages and conditions:

  • Soft tissue injuries including muscle and ligament strains and sprains

  • Tendon dysfunction - tendonitis and tendinopathies

  • Joint pain caused by overuse, osteoarthritis or orthopaedic conditions

  • Sporting injuries - agility, flyball or canicross issues

  • Chronic musculoskeletal pain 

  • Inflammation and swelling from acute injuries or long term conditions such as osteoarthritis

  • Nerve related pain

  • Post operative recovery including fractures to decrease healing and improve recovery times

The clinic offers treatment with a K-Laser Class IV laser which significantly cuts down the treatment time - a single joint can be treated in around 2.5 minutes depending on the size of the dog and colour of their coat.
