Healing Laser Therapy for Your Cat
The Cat Clinic of Iowa City is committed to providing the best veterinary care to maintain a long and healthy life for your feline companion. Our cat-focused veterinary services include laser therapy - a non-invasive and pain-free treatment that provides pain relief, reduces inflammation, and promotes a faster rate of healing.
Laser therapy has no known side effects and can be used in conjunction with other medical treatments. This innovative therapy uses deep-penetrating light energy to activate a cellular response that stimulates nerve cells and releases endorphins to relieve pain.
The treatment usually takes a few minutes to complete and doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort. Your cat will experience a warm, relaxing sensation from the laser therapy wand and remain comfortable during the entire session. In addition to almost-immediate pain relief, laser therapy stimulates cell growth and nerve function which help your cat’s body heal itself faster.
At the Cat Clinic of Iowa City, we use laser therapy to treat acute and chronic conditions:
- Open wounds
- Muscle and ligament injuries
- Ear infections
- Skin problems
- Degenerative joint disease
- Post-surgical trauma
Senior cats can especially benefit from laser therapy treatments. Older cats often experience painful health complications as they age, and laser therapy is a drug-free alternative to surgery that reduces pain and inflammation from arthritis and joint disease. The therapy can also help improve your cat’s overall mobility and function.
