Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
The diagnosis and condition determine the number of treatments needed to see and maintain positive results. Some acute conditions need 1 to 3 treatments. For chronic pain conditions (arthritis, hip dysplasia, etc.), we recommend six treatments over a 3-week period. Click on this link for common conditions and the number of treatments.
HOW LONG ARE THE TREATMENTS?
Most laser therapy treatments are 5 to 10 minutes per treatment site.
DOES IT HURT?
Patients enjoy the soothing warm feeling laser therapy provides during treatments. They often relax and fall asleep.
ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?
Typically no. Sometimes when older animals have multiple sites (hips, back, elbows) treated, they may return home and want to sleep.
WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE THAT THIS WORKS?
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost depends on the number of treatments per week and the time involved for each treatment site. For example, one site would be the left hip, and an additional site would be the knee. So the cost ranges from $45 for less than a twenty-minute session and $90 for a sixty-minute session with multiple sites. Please call us for more details.
