Pain Relief for Dogs & Cats
A pet owner never wants to see their best friend suffer, and you don’t have to! Our veterinary team provides comprehensive pain relief for dogs and cats at our Libertyville animal hospital to help your pet feel their best.

We provide a variety of pet pain management options, including medical intervention. Our veterinary team will work closely with you and your pet to determine the best option for your pet’s needs.
Laser Therapy as an Alternative to Medical Pet Pain Management
One of the incredible pet pain management options that we offer is the revolutionary pet laser therapy service. Laser therapy is an FDA-approved treatment modality which was first used in human medicine. This treatment option works by sending concentrated light waves directly into the affected area of the body, stimulating the cells in that area. A typical treatment lasts approximately 5-10 minutes and many patients begin to show signs of improvement after about 3-5 treatments.
Laser therapy is known for its success in helping patients feel better and it works by stimulating the body’s own healing ability, creating a very natural treatment option for pain and chronic conditions.
What Does Laser Therapy Do?
Laser therapy has been known to effectively treat the following concerns:
- Acute pain
- Pain associated with an injury
- Post-operative pain
- Relief of symptoms associated with a chronic condition
- …and more.
If your pet has begun to slow down or show less interest in things they used to enjoy, their comfort may be in question. We invite you to contact us to schedule an assessment with our team so that we can help you determine if pet pain management is necessary.
