Laser therapy has helped countless humans find relief from aching joints, slow-healing wounds, and other conditions, and now it helps our pets, too! Dogs and cats alike can experience the soothing benefits of laser therapy, which uses low-level, infrared light energy to heal the body from within. At Daleville Animal Hospital, we use our therapeutic laser to help treat a wide range of conditions, and we work with every patient to create a treatment plan tailored specifically to their needs.
