Companion Laser Therapy


Class IV Laser Therapy is an advancement in companion animal medicine that Heritage Animal Hospital implemented as a routine standard of care in 2014.  We were among one of the first practices in the area to provide this therapy to our patients.  This therapy provides an additional treatment to manage pain and accelerate healing. It is a wonderful adjuvant to medical and surgical case management.


Laser Therapy uses a beam of red laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it.  Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called “photo-bio-modulation,” which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed.  The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive handpiece to treat the affected area.  Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth.  Most treatments only take a matter of minutes.
