Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a rapidly growing adjunctive therapy in companion animal practice.

Low-level laser or cold laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation, thus helping damaged tissue to repair.

LLLT can be used to treat dogs with arthritis, tendon or soft tissue injuries, and to promote wound healing.

Most lasers are programmable to a range of frequencies in order to treat many different types of problems in dogs.
