What can laser therapy do for your pets
Laser is being used in many veterinary practices who are seeing amazing results in a range of conditions from wounds, post operative healing and musculoskeletal disorders. As laser is totally non invasive most pets and horses relax into the sessions very qiuckly and many fall asleep while it is taking place!
Laser therapy can effectively reduce pain and inflammation associated with a variety of acute and chronic conditions, including:

Laser can be beneficial for so many conditions including wounds, read our case studies below.
Max underwent a a partial tail ampututation but got infected post operatively. He was on antibiotics, daily dressing changes and in a lot of discomfort. A decision was made for him to have all of his tail ampututated something which his owners where not keen on. Both his vet and owners where keen to try laser, Max had two treatments each consisting of around 2 minutes. After the first treatment the tail was not as inflammed and after the 2nd treatment he was much more comfortable. After 6 weeks his hair was growing back rapidly! Overall happy dog and very happy ownes and vet!
Bryan sustained a severe wound to his hindleg, after several attempts to heal using antibiotics and dressing changes he was referred to us via his owners vet, he was already struggling with the wound and it was clear he was uncomfortable and his owner was becoming more and more frustrated. A treatment plan was devised and he had laser twice a week with dressing changes. He had a total of 12 sessions and the wound healed up beautifully, he has less scar tissue, pain free and most importantly his owner and vet are very happy.

“Chloe our mature Irish Setter is having laser therapy. We are all very pleased with the results to date.
Paul and Lorraine have been wonderful with Chloe and very reassuring with us.
Their work is very professional and carried out in a relaxed manner
They have made Chloe feel very relaxed. Chloe is a dog that gets very stressed going to a vet practice.
So top marks
“We can not thank Lorraine and Paul enough . Our dog suffered a stroke in September He had laser therapy for a couple of months it worked wonders and he loved it .”
“Michael our 11 year old Affenpinscher started with a foreleg lameness which despite X-rays, anti inflammatory & pain killers did not improve at all.
He was a miserable dog wanting to keep away from his kennel mates in case he got hurt. He has just finished 4 weeks of laser treatment and what a different dog he is, His tail is up & wagging showing that he feels much better.
Although he isn’t 100% sound yet we hope with a continued weekly maintenance treatment that he eventually goes sound!”
“Lorraine and Paul started treating my horse charlie in October. He had been in and out of work for 18 months with a tendon injury behind but had also started to experience arthritic change in his shoulder that was causing him discomfort under saddle.
From the first treatment I could see a marked difference, swelling that the vet had said would be permanent had reduced considerably.
He completed his initial course and we were able to start hacking out and getting him fit and for the first time he was remaining sound!!
8 months on charlie is now on maintenance treatment which he receives every six weeks and on Sunday 10/06/2018 I was actually able to go out and compete winning the class, I can honestly say that without Paul and lorraine treating him this wouldn’t have been possible.
2 such lovely people who me and charlie can’t be more grateful to have met, who offer an affordable treatment that actually works.
If anyone is reading this wondering if it will work for their horse please give it a go you will not regret it.”
“ asked Lorraine to come and use her laser therapy on my 5 year old, TB x ID, dressage horse after the dozy sod slipped in him stable and pulled his shoulder. On Sunday 28th he was visibly lame, Lol came on the Monday and did the first treatment and buy the Tuesday he was barely uneven never mind slightly lame. He had his second treatment today, Thursday 1st June, and he is looking great again.
I can’t recommend this treatment enough for any soft tissue issues. It’s a fraction of the cost of the vet and works in a fraction on the time as well.”
“Hector our horse had laser therapy for a nasty wound to his leg. Fantastic service from such caring, empathic people. So easy to talk to and superb with our horse. Would highly recommend. Laser was brilliant would highly recommend”
“My dog Max had to have an emergency tail amputation which then got infected. Lorraine came out after the op to change the dressing then again at a later date to use laser therapy. The results were amazing after just two sessions max’s tail was healed and hair was regrowing. It was quick and hassel free and I can not emphasise the stress it saved both us and Max. I will def use again if required and recommend to anybody!”
“Floyd our 5 year old Labrador X has chronic arthritis and elbow dysplasia and a few months ago his pain got dramatically worse. Floyd very quickly was unable to go on walks at all and all exercise around the house was kept to a bare minimum. Floyd was put on metacam (anti inflammatory and pain relief) and 3 a day of pardale(highest dose-pain relief) by our vet, but was still unable to go on walks. Even though we tried to entertain him with countless mental stimulation exercises, he needed to get his normal routine of off the lead walks in the countryside back.
Lol and Paul have been our saviours in regards to Floyd starting to get his happiness back. After just 3 sessions with laser therapy, Floyd’s intense swelling around one of his elbows has completely gone, he is now able to hold something between his paws when lay down (he stopped doing this when in pain), we have reduced his pardale to two a day and he has come off metacam altogether! We are now at the stage where Floyd is having 10-15 minutes walks on the lead each day!We had come round to the idea of Floyd having surgery and/or being on medication for the rest of his life, but our outlook for the future is bright and the hope is to be completely off any medication. We can’t thank you enough for helping Floyd and also being so accommodating and coming to our house because of Floyds needs. X”
“We can not thank and recommend Vet nurse Direct enough. Lol & Paul came and gave our dog Candi laser therapy. Candi is a10 year old Boston Terrier that has been diagnosed with serious breathing problems and has an ongoing spinal condition. Due to her age it was decided ivasive tests would be in fair on Candi and to manage her pain with medication. On speaking to Lol she explained the benefits of lazer we felt anything was worth a try. Now after 4 sessions Candi is acting like a young dog again she is bearing weight on both her back legs using her pads and her breathing is calm and relaxed. It’s like a miracle has occurred. Lol and Paul have been so caring with Candi. Thank you so much we feel you have giving us more time with Candi :-)
“Lorraine and Paul are a lovely couple who have completed my 6 year old female boxer.
Georgie was diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis in her knee. She’s been on metacalm and supplements with no improvement.
She has completed her 6 course treatment of laser and has a spring in her step. She is so much happier and enjoying longer walks again
Lorraine n Paul”
