Frequently asked questions

What is Laser Therapy for animals?

Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free and drug-free treatment that is used to treat a variety of conditions, and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatments. Laser treatment for animals employs deep-penetrating light to promote a chain of chemical reactions known as photo-biostimulation. This process helps relieve pain through the release of endorphins, and it stimulates injured cells to heal at an accelerated pace.

What is the time lenght of a Laser Therapy?

Treatments vary in length, but most sessions require 8 to 20 minutes. Laser treatments for animals are cumulative, so each additional treatment facilitates a greater improvement in your pet's condition. The length and frequency of treatments vary by condition, so allow me to help devise a sufficient laser treatment schedule for your pet.

What Can I Expect At My Pet's Laser Therapy Appointment?

The therapist will hold the laser wand directly over the affected area for somewhere between 3 and 10 minutes. There is no pain associated with the treatment and most pets will relax during this time. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety he or she initially experiences will quickly dissipate. Occasionally, some pets actually fall asleep during their therapy sessions.

Is Laser Treatment Painful Or Uncomfortable?

Laser treatment is totally pain free and very comforting. As the laser is administered, your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth, tingling, or no sensation at all. For many, laser therapy is very relaxing. As areas of pain or inflammation become more comfortable, any anxiety and tension your pet may be experiencing tends to quickly dissipate.

Are There Any Side Effects Of Laser Therapy ?

Laser treatment has no known side effects, and is considered both safe and effective across the veterinary/ animal alternative therapies industry.

Laser Therapy To Recover From Injury Or Surgery

Laser therapy is a very helpful tool during postoperative recovery. In minor cases, laser therapy alone may be enough to alleviate pain and stimulate the healing process. Because it works directly on injured or affected areas, laser treatments can help speed up healing, strengthen muscle and tissue, improve mobility and enhance your pet's overall quality of life almost immediately.

Laser Therapy For Pain Relief?

Laser therapy reduces pain by reducing inflammation through "vasodilation" (the opening of blood vessels) and also by activating the lymphatic drainage system, thus draining swollen areas. The result is a reduction in swelling which reduces pain. The lasers also stimulate nerve cells that block pain signals from being transmitted to the brain, thereby decreasing nerve sensitivity. Because there is less inflammation, less swelling and an interruption of pain signals to the brain, the pet will experience less pain. Laser treatments also stimulate the production of high levels of naturally-produced endorphins which further counteract your pet's pain.

Do I have to inform my Vet about our therapies?

Yes, officialy you should inform your veterinarian about our therapies.

What is the holistic approach?

The practice of holistic therapy is about understanding the patient as a whole system. The treatment through natural remedies such as flower therapy and homeopathy allows this approach, which, ultimately, is definitely complementary to traditionally applied veterinary medicine. The goal of alternative therapy is not only to take care of a disease, but also to prevent the rest of the body from becoming ill.

What kind of holistic therapy do you offer?

I offer bach Remedies for animals. The idea behind Bach flower treatments is similar to homeopathy. But fewer materials are used and we do not work directly on physical symptoms, but rather on emotions. Bach believed that healing negative emotions helped the body heal. His system contains 38 treatments. In flower therapy we do not treat the symptom eg. Fear, aggression, but THE CAUSE behind the symptom. The combinations are many and often complex. Flower therapy is a deeply holistic treatment. When done correctly, it will show wonderful results.
