Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to veterinary medicine.
At Holistic Veterinary Care, we use the GradyVet P-3000 class 3b laser. This is a noninvasive, coherent light laser, also known as a “cold laser.” Unlike surgical or class 4 lasers that produce heat and thermo-destructive laser energy, class 3b lasers produce no harm to cells or tissues. Cold laser therapy has demonstrated medical efficacy and safety through clinical studies for over 30 years.
Cold laser uses a beam of light to stimulate damaged cells to produce more energy. The overall cellular function is increased, allowing for rapid absorption of nutrients, elimination of wastes, and reproduction of new cells. The new cellular activity aids in:
Through research, it has been shown that many acute and chronic conditions can be improved, or in some cases, resolved with cold laser therapy. Specific examples of conditions include:

Depending on the severity and duration of the presenting condition, the number of cold laser therapy sessions for your pet will vary. Some pets experience relief after the first treatment!
There are no known side effects from administration of cold laser therapy.
