Cat With An Injured Leg

Cat and dog laser therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment for healing wounds and relieving pain in pets. Pets are known to hide their pain out of instinct, but this doesn’t mean they aren’t suffering. That’s why we are dedicated to helping our patients enjoy pain-free lives as much as possible. We know how much it can make a difference for them and their families. If your pet is in pain they might become depressed, gain weight due to diminished activity, and develop other health conditions as a result. When that pain is treated, your pet can regain their zest for life and enjoy better health overall.

Get in touch with our clinic by calling (512) 847-5630 or requesting an appointment online. We’ll be happy to discuss laser therapy and other pain relief options for your pet.

Eating Less

Reluctant to play

Less sociable

Sleeping more often

Difficulty jumping

Slow getting up or lying down

Restless when trying to sleep

Licking or chewing at the same spot

Dr. Sheffield and his staff set a new "bar" for kindness, gentleness, and professionalism . I have been in veterinary practice for 37 years, and I am not easy to impress (or easy to please, for that matter!) I traveled 600 miles to bring my dogs to these fantastic folks and amazing facility. They have state of the art equipment, caring staff, very experienced veterinary professionals and a reasonable fee scale. I would not even consider taking my dogs anywhere else...ever.


How Does Cat and Dog Laser Therapy Work?

Laser therapy is much more soothing and gentler than it sounds. Treatment involves using a handheld device to expose an affected area (such as a wound, bruise, or inflammation) to low-level infrared light beams, which, when absorbed into your pet’s skin and muscle tissue, help those tissues heal and become less painful. Your pet’s tissue cells metabolize the light particles, which spurs repair and cell growth. It’s a remarkable process that accelerates tissue healing and pain relief, and all your pet needs to do is sit or lie down and relax during treatment.

Our laser equipment is calibrated to meet each patient’s unique needs, considering the depth and extent of their condition, their skin and coat color, body weight, and more.
