Frequently Asked Questions

How does laser therapy work?

The laser beam stimulates the cells and tissues to be healthy.  It also reduces inflammation so that healing can begin.  By reducing inflammation, the laser is also a great tool for helping to minimize the pain of many chronic conditions, like arthritis.

What will my animal feel when receiving the laser treatments?

Laser therapy is a painless application of healing light.  Your animal might feel a slight tingling as the light enters the tissue and cells, but it is very minimal, if at all.

How long will each treatment take?

The treatment time depends on how chronic the condition is and the depth the laser light needs to reach to be effective.  However, almost all treatments will be between two and ten minutes.

How many treatments will my animal need?

The number of treatments can vary greatly based on the condition, but many pet owners notice a positive difference within three or four treatments.

What are the cost of the treatments?

Talk to our staff as cost can vary depending on if you purchase a package of multiple treatments or would prefer to pay per treatment and depending on how many sites we are treating on your pet.  However, our treatment prices are set to be reasonable.  

Are the results guaranteed?

We are not able to guarantee the results on every animal.  However, laser therapy has been proven to be effective in clinical studies and in rehab settings in both human medical and veterinary medical.  There are over thirty years of research which supports the efficacy of this holistic treatment.

May I stay with my pet during treatment?

Yes!  We are happy to allow you to stay with your pet if you prefer.  We will ask that your wear protective eye wear during the treatment, however, for you safety.

Can laser therapy be used with other treatment methods?

Absolutely! Laser therapy can be used alongside pain medications, prescriptions diets and natural supplements – in fact, the efficacy of laser therapy treatments may allow us to scale back on the use of pain medications.

Will you treat animals that are not current patients at Forest Park Veterinary Clinic?

We are happy to offer laser therapy treatments to pets who are not our regular patients, however we do require a thorough medical history and physical examination by one of our veterinarians. Depending on the presenting complaint, that may include x-rays. Please ask our medical staff for more details.
