How it works

K-LASER therapy does not treat conditions, it stimulates the body’s inherent healing mechanisms via a process called photobiomodulation. Through a combination of different wavelengths, power and frequency of laser light K-LASER is able to achieve improved healing times, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been utilised in human and animal medicine for many decades, however recent technical advances in laser miniaturisation has allowed laser therapy to be used for a wider range of patients.

Class IV K Laser

The probe is held over the area being treated and the light omitted is painless so enjoyable for the animal. 

Treatment times vary in length depending upon the condition and the size of your animal, but the majority are less than 8 minutes. Often improvement can be seen after the first visit, however Class IV Laser Therapy treatment is cumulative in nature so for most conditions patients will require several repeat treatments for greatest benefit. The schedule of treatments will vary depending upon the condition but this is an example plan often used:

  • Three treatments in the first week

  • Two in the second week

  • One in the third week

  • Monthly booster sessions as needed
