Those who are following me on Facebook and Instagram, you may have already known that I’m a certified cold laser practitioner now!
Why Laser Now?
In the last 7 years, I was trying to convey the message that:
- massage is more effective when the dog is younger and healthier
- maintenance and preventative care along with core training will make a big difference in the dog’s golden years
I still feel strongly about maintenance regardless of how young your dog is.
In reality, there are so many dogs that have chronic (opting out of surgery, etc.) and/or geriatric conditions that cause them to live with pain…
Effectively Reduce Inflammation and Pain
The device I use is a Class III laser that has 830 nano meter wave length and can be used for various applications with absolutely no side effects like synthetic medication has.
It does not generate heat and your pet basically does not feel anything at the time of treatment.
Cold laser may be used for:
- Acute shoulder lameness
- ACL strain
- Chronic renal failure
- Hip dysplasia
- Hot spots
- Lumbar pain
- Post-op incision treatment
- Lick granuloma
- Luxating patella
So, I thought why not try cold laser if I can make dogs feel more comfortable more efficiently!
If Your Dog is…
- not comfortable being touched
- a senior that cannot tolerate a 60 min. massage
Cold laser may be the perfect option to help him/her feel better with less time and stress!
Cats are welcome, too!
My soon to be 16-yr-old kitty, Angel has chronic kidney failure.
She has had very little appetite lately and spoon-feeding was the only way to get her to eat.
After applying cold later once over the kidneys, she started eating on her own and she even asks for food now!
So if you have a senior cat with chronic renal issues, cold laser may be an option!
