Red Light Therapy Benefits

I personally believe red light therapy devices are highly effective and an excellent treatment for A-L-L pets, and humans too. Healing Pets with Red Light Therapy is definitely a holistic practice I use frequently. Example: On 4/19/2023, my cat was bitten by a (bull?) snake. He could not use his leg and it was severely swollen, I thought he broke it. He would not let me touch it to look at it, so I thought to use my red light on his leg. His sessions were about 2-3 hours a day for 4 days. Today, he is outside and able to walk again and the swelling is completely gone, though I can see two big puncture marks on his leg that are nice in size and all the hair in that area of his leg is gone. The puncture marks look like a snake bite.

LED Light for Dogs

A 2017 study evaluated the effects of pre-operative red light therapy on dogs undergoing bone surgery. Twenty-seven dogs were divided into two groups, one group received the red light treatment pre-operatively, and the other group received a fake treatment. Eight weeks after treatment, a greater proportion of the dogs treated with light therapy had healed.
