Companion Therapy Laser System
The Henrietta Animal Hospital is proud to introduce the Companion Therapy Laser System; a revolutionary new approach to treating pain and inflammation in our companion animals. We are the first hospital in the Rochester area to make the Companion Therapy Laser System available to our patients.
The Companion Therapy Laser System can:
Quickly improve the life of your pet without expensive prescriptions or surgery.
Get your companion back to feeling like themselves again.
Provide the deepest penetrating Class IV vet laser on the market.
Any pet that is in pain or discomfort is a candidate for relief with a therapy laser.
A relatively new branch of medicine, the Class IV laser delivers a large amount of light energy into the pet’s body. When the light interacts with damaged cells, healing is accelerated and pain is dramatically reduced. As our pets age, recover from trauma or surgery, or simply need relief from everyday aches and pains, this advanced technology can offer a drug-free, surgery-free, and pain-free treatment alternative.
Laser Energy Heals Pets
To some, the word “Laser” suggests missile defense systems and warring science-fiction space ships. Others think of laser light shows at rock concerts. Still others may think of some lasers’ capability to cut and weld steel, or to scan the bar code on products at the grocery store, or to print a crisp image on paper.
Not only can lasers perform all of these tasks, they also have created remarkable medical breakthroughs, such as their use for vision correction and precision surgery. Our Class IV Therapy Laser has the proven ability to reduce pain, speed healing, and to reduce inflammation.

Veterinarians are applying this technology every day to treat their patients that are in pain, or that have an injury or a wound that they would like to heal more quickly. For pets who have had surgery, or who have had a traumatic injury, the laser is used to speed healing. For surgical patients, this is a simple, quick treatment immediately after surgery along the incision.
Laser therapy is an excellent way to assist older pets who often have aches or pains and have decreased mobility. Chronic conditions and degenerative joint diseases such as arthritis respond exceptionally well to laser treatment. More severe cases often require a series of treatments to realize the full benefits of laser therapy. Laser treatments are drug free, non invasive and have no side effects. This is extremely important with patients who may suffer side-effects from medications.
Laser Therapy for Pets
Acute conditions may require more than a single treatment, but also respond well to laser therapy. Because laser therapy can be administered without touching the painful area, veterinarians are able to provide immediate pain relief and edema control to very sensitive tissues.
Laser therapy also reduces inflammation by increasing vasodilation, activating the lymphatic drainage system, and reducing pro-inflammatory mediators. As a result, inflammation, erythema, bruising, and edema are all reduced when treated with laser. This is especially important for conditions where anti-inflammatory medications are risky for the patient because of the patient’s age, liver health, or species. Laser therapy is a drug-free treatment modality that can often replace or enhance other treatment plans recommended by your veterinarian.

Thank you so much,
There are thousands of reports of pets who were lame and inactive who return to normal, or almost normal function after laser therapy. More chronic or severe cases may require multiple treatment sessions for full benefit.
