Southside Animal Hospital

Now Offering Pet Laser Therapy

Nashville pet owners – Southside Animal Hospital offers pet laser therapy, a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that helps to reduce inflammation, decrease pain and aid in healing.

Pet Laser Therapy is Commonly Used to Treat:

  • Inflammation and pain after surgery (soft tissue and orthopedic)

  • Muscle strains/sprains

  • Chronic osteoarthritic conditions and arthritis

  • Joint or disc disease

  • Skin conditions (hot spots, lick granulomas, infections)

  • Wounds, bites and burns

How Does Pet Laser Therapy Work?

The laser emits light energy (photons) into the tissues, which causes chemical changes to the cells. Those chemical changes cause energy production and stimulation of the cellular tissue, resulting in increased blood flow to areas of injury, increased lymphatic drainage and ultimately decreased inflammation and pain.

What Happens During Pet Laser Therapy?

Laser treatment is administered through a non-invasive handheld device. Treatment times are typically less than 5 minutes. There is no clipping of fur, no painful manipulations and no known side effects of treatment. Southside Animal Hospital veterinarians and vet staff and your pet will wear protective eyewear during treatments.
