Veterinary care has come a long way in the past 20 years. Pets are treated with significantly more respect than in past generations, and treating and managing pain is high on the list of priorities.

Have you ever considered that pain can be managed without drugs or surgery?
At All Creatures Vet Hospital of Brooklyn we are a Companion Animal Laser Therapy Pain Relief Center.
Drug Free. Surgery Free. Relief for your pet.
How does it work?
Laser light is delivered to the affected area by a non-invasive hand- piece. This Class IV laser light induces a biological response within the cells called “photo-bio-modulation” which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed. During treatment your pet may feel gentle soothing warmth.
What does it treat?
Many common chronic and acute conditions can be helped with Laser therapy.
To name a few:
-Degenerative Joint Disease
-Post Surgical Healing and Pain Relief
What are the treatment protocols?
Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition. Upon an initial Veterinary assessment, a plan will be created which will vary in time, complexity and cost. Often times, laser can also be used to enhance other treatment plans recommended by the Veterinarian.
What is your favorite thing about performing laser therapy?
