LASER THERAPY FOR PETS in Hingham, MA

Laser Therapy for Pets in Hingham, MA

What if there was a treatment for inflammation and pain in pets that didn’t come with the risk of side effects? At Old Derby Animal Hospital, we offer just such a treatment with pet laser therapy. Our Class IV therapeutic laser helps dogs and cats heal naturally without the need for invasive surgery or medications. Laser therapy is extremely safe for virtually every pet, and it can help treat a wide range of conditions.

What Takes Place During Laser Therapy Treatment?

It almost seems too simple—how can infrared light particles help an animal heal? The key to success can be found in your pet’s cells, which absorb and metabolize light energy (photons). This energy increases cell regeneration and accelerates the repair of damaged soft tissue cells. Concentrating low-level light energy on bruised or damaged areas kickstarts the body’s natural healing abilities in a process called photobiomodulation.
