What is Cold Laser Therapy?

Cold laser therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy (LLLT), is an advanced, non-invasive treatment that harnesses the power of low-intensity laser light to promote healing and relieve pain. This gentle and highly effective therapy is particularly beneficial for avian and exotic pets.

Cold laser therapy stimulates the body’s natural healing processes at the cellular level. The laser light penetrates the skin, targeting the affected areas, and triggers biochemical reactions that reduce inflammation, increase blood circulation, and accelerate tissue repair. This results in pain relief and faster recovery without surgery or medication.

Why is Cold Laser Therapy Essential for Your Avian or Exotic Pet?

Pain Management: Avian and exotic pets often hide their pain well, making it challenging to recognize their discomfort. Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive method to manage and alleviate pain caused by various conditions, including arthritis, soft tissue injuries, and post-surgery discomfort.

Faster Healing: Cold laser therapy enhances the body’s natural healing processes, promoting faster recovery. Laser therapy can be used for chronic wound healing, skin conditions, bites and burns. This is especially crucial for these unique pets as they may have specific vulnerabilities that require special care.

Minimized Stress: Many avian and exotic pets are highly sensitive to the stress associated with traditional treatments. Cold laser therapy is gentle and stress-free, ensuring your pet’s comfort during the entire process.

Reduced Need for Medications: With cold laser therapy, you can sometimes reduce the need for medications. At Griffin Avian and Exotic Veterinary Hospital we often use cold laser therapy in combination with medication.
