The most effective treatment is physical rehabilitation when your loyal companion is in pain due to injury or surgery. Rehabilitation treats orthopedic injuries, neurological issues, surgical wounds, and other physical injuries. At Dundas Euclid Animal Hospital, we offer a wide range of rehabilitation services, including laser therapy, that help improve mobility, reduce pain and inflammation, and speed up post-op recovery.

Are there any risks related to physical rehabilitation?
Physical rehabilitation is considered very safe. There can be complications only when it is performed incorrectly. Dundas Euclid Animal Hospital has board-certified veterinary therapists who are experienced and skilled at conducting therapy sessions, including cold and hot laser therapies.
How does laser therapy work?
In laser therapy, a device emitting lasers is placed on the affected area penetrating the skin. The laser causes photobiomodulation; in simple terms, it alters cellular and tissue physiology and stimulates the release of endorphins which promote repair and growth.
