Collection: PETS

              

Light therapy is well documented to be therapeutically effective for humans but can it work on animals? 

The answer is YES! In the same way that many people are shifting towards non-invasive, holistic treatments for illness, animal owners are increasingly open to alternative therapies for their beloved pets. Just like us, animals are prone to inflammation, breaks, sprains, cuts, and pain. Trips to the vet and consequent dressings and surgeries can be extremely costly and distressing for a pet. For larger animals such as horses, small injuries can mean they are out of work for months. 

Light therapy is a very effective and safe treatment for pain and inflammation due to the ability to penetrate deep through the layers of the skin, to the muscles and bones. Red and near-infrared light wavelengths keep joints, muscles and tissue healthy by promoting cellular regeneration and reducing inflammation. Enhancing and improving circulation in the skin and other parts of the body, it can bring oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues, promoting healing. It helps ease pain, relieve inflammation, and protect against oxidative stress.

Many of our Light Therapy products have USB connections which make them portable when used with a power bank and can be placed on difficult to reach areas and secured with Velcro straps- very useful when using on animals that find it difficult to stay still.

PETS & SMALL ANIMALS

Most pets appear comfortable around red and near-infrared light wavelengths, especially if their devoted owners are providing them with lots of attention and love during their treatment. Our furry friends can benefit from the therapeutic effects of light therapy and experience a better quality of life with improved pain management leading to increased comfort and mobility.

Furry animals benefit from being slightly closer to the light source because their fur can hinder the penetration of the wavelengths through to the skin.

Animals such as dogs see a more limited colour range than humans so are not visually sensitive to red or near-infrared light.

Light therapy is used on a number of ailments including:

  • Joint pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sore muscles
  • Wounds and cuts
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Ligament and tendon injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Pain
  • Muscle regeneration
