Laser therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative for managing pain. Laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA for use in the veterinary field and is proven safe and effective for treating many debilitating painful conditions.
Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues that are exposed to the laser. Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology. Photons of laser energy penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. As a result of exposure to the laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair themselves faster. As inflammation is reduced pain subsides very quickly. In simple terms, laser energy kick-starts the healing process, thereby speeding recovery.
Get your loved one back to pain-free health more quickly with laser therapy!
What is a laser?

What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.
How does it work?
Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.

MLS Stands for Multiwave Locked System. MLS is the name of the technology that utilizes the patented combination of wavelengths.
Is MLS Laser Therapy approved by the FDA?
The FDA has cleared the use of MLS Laser Therapy and it is also patented via the U.S. Patent Office.
What can be expected during a treatment?
MLS Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that can last a few seconds to many minutes, depending on the condition and area being treated. Your pet may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application, but it is common to have no sensation during the treatment. Your pet should not feel any heat during the treatment, which is unique to MLS Laser Therapy.
What can be expected after the treatment?
Most pets experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments. The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as the treatment plan progresses. It is important that once your pet starts receiving laser therapy that the entire course of treatments is completed, as recommended by your veterinarian.
