WHAT IS CLASS IV LASER THERAPY?

Class IV LASER therapy is a non-invasive modality that initiates numerous physiological and biological processes. It is highly supported through years of peer-reviewed scientific research in both the veterinary field and humans. It works through the application of red and infrared light, through various wavelengths, over any anatomical area. This results in beneficial therapeutic outcomes including, but not limited to the alleviation of pain or inflammation, immunomodulation and promotion of wound healing and tissue regeneration in both acute and chornic conditions.

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE AND HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE ANY BENEFITS?

All your pet will feel during their LASER session is a soothing, pleasant warmth. Infact they tend to enjoy it so much they end up falling asleep. 

Typically the theraupeutic effects are seen quickly and clients often report of seeing improvments after a couple of sessions, or even one. 

Treatments to each area are around 5-10 minutes depending on the anatomical area being treated, the condition, the size of the animal and the colour/thickness of the coat.
