Laser Therapy for Cats


What is laser therapy and how does it work?

Help your pet heal with therapy laser. Drug-Free. Surgery Free. Relief for your pet. Therapy Lasers have been scientifically proven and successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions.

Laser therapy is a safe and painless way to stimulate healing, decrease inflammation and pain through the use of class IV, low level, cold light laser. Laser therapy is used at Petroglyph Animal Hospital to help in the treatment of a variety of conditions including wounds, back pain, muscle pain, and osteoarthritis. Lasers can also be used post-operatively on incisions to speed the healing process. The short duration treatments, usually 3-10 minutes for a single area, are usually readily accepted by our patients. They may feel a slight warmth or tingly sensation that may even become soothing.

Some common uses:

  • Wounds
  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Otitis (ear infections)
  • Cuts / Bites
  • Inflammations
  • Sprains, Strains & Fractures
  • Post-Surgical Healing / Pain Relief

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 250-754-8822. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday: 8:45 am - 5:00 pm. Saturday: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
