The therapy is non-invasive and pain free. A comforting, pleasant warming sensation is felt at the treatment site. No restraint is required and patients are able to rest on their bed during treatment, an orthopaedic bed is provided for patients treated in practice, which will be cleaned after each use.
Owners can stay with their animals during treatment.
K-Laser treatments are cumulative in nature. The length and frequency of treatments varies with your pet’s condition. Even though improvements may be seen after the first visit, most patients require several treatment for greatest benefit.
There are no known side effects to K-Laser therapy.
Each treatment area usually takes 3-5 minutes, we may treat multiple areas to get the best results. An example of this would be for arthritis of the elbow we would also recommend to treat the shoulder, neck/back and opposite limb.
Each patient will have a tailored treatment schedule recommended and quoted based on their condition prior to treatment. Some flexibility from the recommended treatment schedule is possible while still maintaining the benefits of the treatment.
An increasing number of insurers are covering K-Laser therapy, it is recommended that insured clients contact their provider (specifying that the animal will be having K-LASER treatment) to check coverage.
