Pet Laser Therapy at Cocoa Beach
Island Animal Hospital is pleased to offer laser therapy to our patients at our Cocoa Beach location. Dr. Sobrino is certified in veterinary rehabilitation and will be the veterinarian to offer this service to pets who need it. Pet laser therapy is a therapeutic approach to treating pain, inflammation, edema, wounds, and much more. It is entirely non-invasive and pain-free, with no known side effects, making it a great alternative or complement to prescription pain medications. Our laser from Cutting Edge Laser Technologies uses the Multiwave Locked System (MLS) that goes beyond traditional low-level light therapy without the concerns associated with high power laser therapy.

Pet Laser Therapy Treatment Plans
Pet laser treatment plans will fluctuate from pet to pet, depending on their response to treatment and their condition. Some pets will show immediate results after one session, yet this is not always the case. We recommend doing treatments in a group of six. The timeframe for these six sessions will vary. They could be daily, twice a week, once a week, etc. Additionally, the treatment could last anywhere from one to ten minutes. It all depends on your individual pet’s needs. Dr. Sobrino will work closely with you to develop the appropriate treatment plan for your pet. The first session will consist of a consultation with our veterinarian and following sessions will be performed by a trained technician.
How Laser Therapy Works
The key element of pet laser therapy is that it uses light energy to facilitate the body’s natural healing processes. Light particles penetrate deep into your pet’s damaged tissue to stimulate a wealth of biological processes including cell production, blood circulation, and more. Our MLS laser is the most advanced laser on the market. It harnesses the latest technology to improve upon traditional Class IV lasers and deliver unparalleled therapeutic effects.
How You Can Take Advantage of Our Laser Therapy Services
Laser therapy is a versatile service that aids in the healing and recovery from many conditions. You can take advantage of the service by:
- Adding it to any surgical procedure to accelerate recovery
- Purchasing a single treatment
- Investing in a package of six treatments (in which you get one session for free)
All patients looking to undergo pet laser therapy treatment require a veterinary exam within 60 days of the referral. If you’ve had an exam in that timeframe, Dr. Sobrino will offer a courtesy exam. If not, you will need to pay a medical exam fee.
