Canine Light Therapy Helps with Arthritis and Joint Pain
When your best buddy is in pain, what do you do?
Our dogs are members of our family and whether our wonderful friends are competitors or companions, we want them to be as happy and healthy as possible. If you are like us, your dog doesn't live outside tethered to a rope, your dog lives in the house with you, eats in the kitchen, watches tv with you and is part of the family. What do you do when your best friend gets injured or is getting older and you see a little limp or trouble getting up? You want the best quality of life for your faithful friend, afterall, your pup has given you unconditional love. Your veterinarian may suggest one of the many drugs out there, Rimadyl or Previcox or a variety of other anti inflammatories and they are great short term, but most come with unpleasant side effects.
Canine Light Therapy can help, and you can treat your buddy in the comfort of your home!
Canine Light Therapy Pads Are Effective, Safe and Affordable!
Yes, they really work. There are over 1000 independent research studies that prove light therapy is helpful for a wide variety of medical conditions. You can scroll down and find links to two studies that show light therapy will provide pain relief and reduce joint inflammation caused by Arthritis. Canine Light Therapy pads provide the same deep-red and near-infrared energy that are used in those studies and provide the same kind of pain relief and reduced inflammation; just look at the two happy customers below.
Canine Light Therapy Pads Are Affordable
Canine Light Therapy pads cost much less than lasers or even a regimen of laser treatments. A laser will cost you several thousand dollars; laser treatments cost $50 to $100 each and a typical regimen is once or twice per week. The Canine Light Therapy pads start at a couple hundred dollars and will provide thousands of treatments.
Canine Light Therapy Pads Are Easy to Use
Just lay the Canine Light Therapy pad on your dog or wrap it around the leg and plug it in. There are no settings, dials, or switches. The pad will shut off automatically after the full treatment time of 15 minutes. Then simply remove the pad and unplug it. It is just that easy; anyone can do it.
Canine Light Therapy Pads Are Convenient
Use Canine Light Therapy pads at home; it simply can't be more convenient. There is no need to load your dog into the car, drive to the laser treatment, wait your turn, pay for the treatment, load your dog back in the car and drive home. Just use your Canine Light Therapy pad at home where your dog is more relaxed, more comfortable, and you can avoid the extra stress on the joints caused by getting in and out of the car.
Canine Light Therapy Pads Are Safe
Canine Light Therapy pads are very powerful but very safe. You do NOT need safety goggles or special training that you would need with lasers. An improperly used laser can damage tissue or delay the healing process in what is called the "laser inhibition response". Canine Light Therapy pads will not damage tissue and there is NO risk of the "laser inhibition response".
Our dogs are part of our family, no one wants to see loved ones suffering or in pain. Now you can help your buddy feel better by treating your dog in the comfort of your own home, order your Canine Light Therapy pad today. We offer a 30 day money back guarantee with our light therapy pads.

Research: "Effect of light-emitting diode (LED) therapy on the development of osteoarthritis (OA) in a rabbit model"
by Yasushi Oshima, Richard D. Coutts, Neil M. Badlani, Robert M. Healey, Toshikazu Kubo, David Amiel
"Conclusions: There was general preservation of the articular surface and decreased levels of inflammation in the osteoarthritic joints with the application of LED therapy."
Research: "Biphasic Dose Response in Low Level Light Therapy"

This is a wonderful paper which goes into depth in discussion and explanation of the mechanisms of
light for healing and pain relief.
"The use of low levels of visible or near infrared light for reducing pain, inflammation and edema, promoting healing of wounds, deeper tissues and nerves, and preventing cell death and tissue damage has been known for over forty years since the invention of lasers."
"Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is the application of light (usually a low power laser or LED in the range of 1mW – 500mW) to a pathology to promote tissue regeneration, reduce inflammation and relieve pain. The light is typically of narrow spectral width in the red or near infrared (NIR) spectrum (600nm – 1000nm), with a power density (irradiance) between 1mw-5W/cm2. It is typically applied to the injury for a minute or so, a few times a week for several weeks. Unlike other medical laser pro- cedures, LLLT is not an ablative or thermal mechanism, but rather a pho- tochemical effect comparable to photosynthesis in plants whereby the light is absorbed and exerts a chemical change."
I bought the medium sized pad at the Houston World Series of Dog Shows. I've been using it on my dog who has IMPA (Immune-mediated polyarthritis). She is moving better, and most dramatic, she has gotten off my bed unaided at least 3 times in these last two weeks. It has been months since that has happened, except maybe the day after we see our vet chiropractor. Today Candy had her regular appointment at the vet chiro. I brought the pad to show off and Dr. Robin already knew about it. She found Candy much looser, and her head and neck were in much better alignment than usual.
Candy asks for the light pad at times, but she also tells me when she’s had enough. She is so smart! Our vet chiro, is very pleased with Candy's progress since we've been using the light. Now to be fair and honest, I have to admit we're also doing core exercises, but the combination is working synergistically. Candy is so much better and happier! She may not want to walk farther - it is Houston and therefore, very humid! But she is happier and moves so much better. I am so very thankful that we met and that light therapy is now a part of our daily routine. And the best is the intangible -- she's happier. Thank you, from both of us!

Katie is a Labrador Retriever who was rescued from New Orleans following hurricane Katrina. She recently suffered medical problems that cause her to have joint pain and she is losing her vision. She is an all around athlete who enjoys agility, dock diving, and flyball.
Katie continues to play flyball with her teammates on the Queen City Road Runners flyball club. Her pain is managed using light therapy. I use the Canine Light Therapy pad each evening after racing with great results.
Thanks, Deb Y.
