Light therapy has been approved for use on humans for several years. Now, thanks to breakthroughs in science and medical technology, this innovative therapy option is also available for use on our four-legged family members. V.E.T. Care Hospital is happy to offer fluorescent light therapy as part of our comprehensive suite of services.

What is fluorescent light therapy?

Fluorescent light therapy is applied topically using a handheld device, which emits low-energy light. This creates a natural response within the body that helps to speed up the growth and regeneration of cells. Best of all, it is extremely quick and completely painless.

Fluorescent light therapy has been clinically proven to shorten and improve the healing process – in many cases, faster and more completely than traditional laser therapy. Faster healing means less time in a bandage, cone or e-collar.

What can light therapy treat?

Fluorescent light therapy can be used to address a number of dermatological conditions. The most common uses of light therapy include:

  • Surgical incisions 
  • Skin legions
  • Perianal fistulas
  • Interdigital furunculosis
  • Superficial and deep pyoderma 

If your pet recently underwent a surgical procedure or suffers from any of the conditions listed above, fluorescent light therapy may be the ideal solution.
