Cold laser treatment for your poodle and other pets

There is an innovative treatment that can be very effective in treating certain injuries and conditions for pets.  Cold laser treatment for your poodle and other pets (also called Veterinary Low Level Laser) has been known to be tremendously beneficial in treating animals with any kind of muscular and skeletal issues.

Cold Laser Treatment for Poodle

Cold laser therapy can reduce pain, improve nerve function and help to speed the healing process of damaged muscle tissue and helps to reduce inflammation.  When the special light is applied to the animal, it penetrates all the way to the mitochondria of the cells and begins to repair the areas which are injured and not functioning properly.  It has been used to great effect on back, neck, spine and joint issues and helps spread the healing to other parts of the body.

When one of my cats’ front paw had become lame and paralyzed, I took him to our vet, who uses this treatment in her practice.  Dr. Jill Elliot used the cold laser treatment on Frosty and within the first couple of days after the initial session, his paw had begun to be completely restored, and he was able to walk again without any problems.  Chiropractors have been using this technique for decades, but it has only been used by veterinarians in recent years in their practice.  Many, if not, most veterinarians do not use this or do not know about cold laser therapy for poodles, cats and other pets.

The following is from and explains exactly what this treatment is.


L.A.S.E.R. stands for Light Amplification Stimulated Emission Rays, a way of directing highly concentrated coherent light of a concise wave length to the muscles, tissues, organs, connective tissue, formed elements of the blood, living matrix of the body, to direct all aspects of healing, growth, regulations of metabolism and general cell survival. This happens normally in our animal’s bodies but poor diet, disease, toxins, genetics and aging take hold, the communications (the mitochondria in the cells) begin to fail as the tissues change and break down to the DNA.


The low level (cold) laser allows us to “dial up” and “dial into” the body’s natural communication process. This artificial production of the cell’s natural wavelength and frequency gives us the ability to emulate the exact methodology that cells would use to heal themselves. 

Depending on the severity of the problem a series of 4 -12 treatments is suggested. The first four treatments usually occur within the first few days (2 a day at least one hour apart). After there are once a day treatments scheduled over the following three weeks. These treatments are cumulative so the faster they get done the quicker the results are seen. However, due to scheduling concerns you can spread out visits.
