Laser Therapy

Oak tree vets were the first veterinary practice in Scotland to invest in a class IV therapeutic laser


Laser therapy is a relatively new form of treatment and is becoming an increasingly popular way to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is a fast and effective way to ease pain and improve mobility by removing or reducing the need for medication and surgery.

If you are looking for a treatment that could speed up your pet’s recovery from surgery or a traumatic injury, or to ease their pain, then you have come to the right place. Laser therapy not only provides relief from aches and pains, but everyday disorders such as painful lick granulomas and chronic ear infections can be quickly improved.

The laser produces a powerful beam of infrared laser light that penetrates deep into your pet’s tissues. Within your pet’s body cells are components called mitochondria; the special frequency of the laser has been chosen to stimulate these mitochondria. The mitochondria are the “power stations” of the cells and the light energises the cells, enabling them to function better and improve the condition of local tissues, encouraging rapid healing of the affected area. The new technology means deeper penetration of the laser beam within shorter treatment sessions. The class IV therapeutic laser is the perfect treatment to ease your pet’s pain and improve recovery rates for a variety of medical conditions.
