Just like humans, our pets, cats, and dogs are all prone to pain, suffering, and injuries. It's important to get them the care they need so they can heal and begin to improve their quality of life. If your pet has been struggling to recover from a previous injury, has had pain that lasts for more than a couple of weeks and doesn't seem to go away, or has changes in behavior, these could all be signs that they're in need of laser therapy treatment.
At Animal Hospital of Union Grove serving Union Grove, WI, we're here to help our pet owners get the care they need for their pets. We offer laser therapy, and believe that its benefits are some of the best for your pet, whether they're in need of pain management or need treatment for other conditions.

What Is Pet Laser Therapy?
Just like humans, lasers can help penetrate the skin into your pet's sore and injured muscles and help them heal. These lasers aim photons directly at injured cells and tissues in your pet's skin and underneath.
These lasers then help encourage cell reproduction, growth, natural healing, circulation, and even a decrease in inflammation.
It can help provide an easy, non-invasive way for your pet to experience pain relief fast.
How Does it Help?
Laser therapy can help treat a variety of conditions that might be causing pain for your pet. These include conditions such as:
- Chronic inflammation
- Previous injuries such as from an accident or from a fight
- Post surgery treatment, since your pet is vulnerable and weak right after surgery
- Skin conditions such as rashes
In addition, this type of laser therapy can help repair cells at a deeper level, making it an option for rehabilitation for your pet from rashes and other skin conditions.
