Vets on Parker offer laser therapy (photobiomodulation), a non-invasive procedure in which light technology is used to stimulate (and, in some cases, inhibit) cell function in cats, dogs and other pets. The laser helps stimulate the nerves and tissues to treat chronic and acute pain and creates the following benefits:

  • Reduction in inflammation and swelling
  • Natural pain relief
  • Speeds up the healing process by accelerating tissue repair, cell growth and nerve cell regeneration
  • Reduces scar tissue formation
  • Improves immune response to infections

At Vets on Parker, we use laser therapy in our post-operative care for pain management and faster healing and recovery in cats, dogs, rabbits and other pets. We also use it for treating:

  • Osteoarthritis, injuries or degenerative joint disease
  • Burns, hotspots, scars, skin or ear infections and skin disease
  • Oral pain associated with stomatitis
  • And much more

If you think your pet might benefit from laser therapy, please book an appointment with one of our vets.


At Vets on Parker, we recommend Laser Therapy after orthopaedic procedures to help reduce the inflammation and pain associated with the surgery and speed up your pet’s recovery. Many owners comment on how quickly their pet returns to normal function after receiving laser therapy in the weeks following the procedure.

Yes, in fact, we encourage it. Our nurses perform the laser treatment with the owners present. Everyone, including your furry friend, just needs to wear protective eyewear during the treatment.

Laser therapy does not cause any pain. Your pet will only feel mild warmth and sometimes a tingling sensation.

Laser therapy is generally considered safe for dogs and other pets when administered by a qualified veterinary professional. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-level laser light to stimulate healing. However, pet owners should always consult with their veterinarian to determine the best course of treatment for their individual dog’s needs.

  • Whilst most owners understand the impact of their pet's oral health on their general health and quality of life, many may still need clarification on the practical ways to achieve excellent pet dental hygiene.
