Dog Laser Therapy in Leesburg, VA

Laser Therapy for Dogs and Cats

Pet laser therapy is a wholly non-invasive procedure that uses light energy to stimulate cell production and hasten healing. The laser emits photons of light on the affected area, which penetrate deep into the tissue and create a photochemical reaction that has many benefits.

Laser therapy helps to:

  • Increase circulation
  • Reduce inflammation and joint swelling
  • Release muscle tension and reduce stress
  • Increase the flow of nutrients to muscles
  • Enhance muscle tone and range of motion
  • Increase the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers

Laser therapy is useful in treating a variety of conditions including:

  • Joint injuries
  • Fractures
  • Strains and sprains
  • Wounds
  • Post-surgical pain and rehabilitation
  • Arthritis
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Nerve injuries

Animal Massage and Reiki

Our holistic pet care therapies are performed by a licensed veterinary technician who is trained in both animal massage and Reiki. Both of these therapies are considered complementary, meaning they do not replace conventional medicine, but simply aid in the process of healing. Animal massage and Reiki help to relax, rejuvenate, and accelerate your pet’s self-healing ability through the reduction of stress which can slow healing.

Just as with human massage, animal massage aids in:

  • Relaxing muscles
  • Increasing circulation
  • Extending the range of motion

Reiki is the channeling of universal energy through the practitioner to the recipient. There is no physical contact between the practitioner and your pet, but the effects are still felt. Reiki is used to help:

  • Calm your pet which facilitates healing of sick or injured animals
  • Reduce aggression or other behavioral problems
  • Recovery from mental or physical traumas
  • Support the dying process

Each holistic pet care therapy will be administered on a different timeline for every pet, depending on their condition, injury, or sickness. Please call us today to learn more about our holistic pet care and whether these complementary therapies are right for your pet!
