Pet Laser Therapy in Abilene, TX

Pain management is vital to the health and wellbeing of your pet. When a dog or cat experiences pain, especially chronic pain, it can limit their activity, reduce their appetite, and make them depressed. At Dearing Veterinary Clinic, we offer a variety of options to keep your pet as pain-free as possible. This includes laser therapy, a non-invasive modality for dogs and cats that uses infrared light energy to alleviate pain and accelerate the healing of bruised and damaged tissues. Using laser therapy as a standalone treatment or integrating it into your pet’s current treatment plan can give them the relief they need to live a healthier and more comfortable life.

How Does Laser Treatment Work?

Laser therapy uses light to heal tissue and provide pain relief. It does this by sending concentrated infrared light particles deep into the tissue, where they interact with the body’s cells and get metabolized. This process, called photobiomodulation, increases cell activity and stimulates cell repair.

How Effective is Laser Therapy for Dogs and Cats?

Our therapeutic laser is highly effective in the treatment of pain, injury, and surgical sites. However, every pet is different, and may respond differently to treatment. The type of condition they have can also determine the efficacy of their treatment. Acute injuries and pain typically require fewer treatments to yield results, but chronic pain, illness, and injury usually require multiple treatment sessions to get the best results.
