The scientific explanation is that the biochemical effect of the low-level light increases the production of cellular energy and thus promotes cellular regeneration, production of collagen for tissue repair, and vascular dilation and synthesis for better circulation. Light from the low-level laser also encourages production of the body’s natural pain-relievers.
Chasing Dreams uses 2 different kinds of lasers — a Class IIIb and a Class IV Companion Laser. These lasers are of different strength and are used for different situations.
Any animals involved in competition, sports, or other physically demanding activities are the most common candidates for low-level laser therapy. Horses and sled dogs are among those most frequently benefiting from this form of therapy, as their lifestyles make them more prone to injury.
Cold laser therapy has a cumulative effect, so for best results treatments should be done at a frequency we can determine in our initial evaluation with your pet. And when properly administered by a trained professional (like us!) it is very safe (we won’t use it where a pet is pregnant or suffering from cancer).
However, Photonic Therapy has become highly sought out by cat and dog owners because of the tremendous injury repair benefits it provides. It is also easily tolerated when performed in combination with other modalities, such as massage.
