Spring Branch Veterinary Hospital offers our patients Companion Laser Therapy! Laser Therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols. Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition being treated and your pet’s unique health status. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to pain treatment.
Applications for Laser Therapy include:
- Treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, and hip dysplasia
- General pain management (sprains, strains, and stiffness)
- Back pain
- Post-surgical pain
- Skin issues (hot spots, lick granulomas, and infections)
- Dental procedures
- Fractures and wounds (bites, abrasions, burns, and lesions)
- Ear infections
How does Laser Therapy really work?
Laser Therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body for about 3 to 8 minutes and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process.

What can my pet expect during a Laser Therapy session?
Simply put, it provides relief. As the laser is administered, your pet will relax and enjoy the treatment. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experiences will dissipate.
