Dog Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy for Dogs

Laser therapy is a form of treatment used for both acute and chronic concerns. Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free and non-invasive treatment to reduce pain and inflammation while increasing the speed of healing.

What is therapeutic laser therapy for dogs and what are the benefits?


Therapeutic laser therapy can be used for acute conditions, such as:
• Wounds
• Allergies
• Infections
• Cuts/bites
• Inflammation
• Sprains/strains/fractures
• Post-surgical healing and pain relief

Therapeutic laser therapy can also be used for chronic conditions, such as:
• Degenerative joint disease,
• Inflammatory bowel disease,
• Periodontal disease,
• Lick granulomas,
• Hip dysplasia,
• Feline acne,
• Tendonitis,
• Arthritis,
• Otitis

Are lasers dangerous for dogs and are there any side effects?


Properly administered, laser therapy is very safe. The laser light is delivered through a non-invasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth. Each treatment generally takes several minutes only.

What kind of lasers are used on pets?


Class IV Deep Tissue laser therapy.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Thursday, March 26, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 604-463-7100. We will bring your pet into the hospital for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet to your car and take care of any needed medications and payment.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time. However, if you're unsure whether your pet needs medical attention, please call us to discuss your situation.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Sunday to Saturday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the Online Store, please visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

7. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
