Many dogs feel better immediately, especially those recovering from a painful surgical procedure. In fact, laser therapy can be done on a surgical wound before the animal even awakens from surgery. In this way, the treatment functions as an ideal companion to surgery since it works directly on the affected area to accelerate healing, fortify muscle and tissue and improve a dog’s mobility.
Still, a dog’s condition dictates how many laser therapy treatments will be advisable. In other words, the more serious the malady, the more treatments are generally necessary. Here, too, laser therapy provides some inherent promise: Since the treatments are cumulative in nature, a dog’s condition generally improves with each procedure.
