What Is PetLight Therapy

The PetLight system is the veterinary version of LightMD’s patented light therapy system. Approved by the FDA in 2015, for human therapeutic use, the PetLight system is non-invasive and stimulates the body’s natural healing response using flexible polymeric pads containing hundreds of solid-state superluminous diodes.

Our Science

Thousands of studies to date prove that living cells are able to absorb light in the red and infrared spectrum and convert it into usable energy.

This reaction produces a cascade of cellular activity and dramatically increases metabolism, which drives the appropriate healing response and reduces recovery time.

Testimonials

We are grateful for PetLight and I have already referred two friends. They even works on little guys (like chinchillas and guinea pigs).
Chris L.

Our 19 year old cats are grooming themselves again, jumping onto chairs and couches, and otherwise acting like kittens after PetLight treatments. What a difference!
Darlene M.
Palo Alto, CA
My dog has not looked this good in years. In a few short weeks, PetLight has brought back the lightness and balance in her step. Suffice it to say, I'm extremely impressed - and grateful.
Jessie G.
Menlo Park, CA
I couldn't believe how quickly Momo recovered. He literally went from a bad limp to jumping again overnight after just one PetLight treatment.
Jinnie Y.
I would estimate that my dog's back pain was reduced 80% within the first week.

I highly recommend you contact PetLight if your dog is having any muscle or skeletal problems. Bob is a happy camper and so are we!
Rachel H.

I would do anything for my old girl, but the cost for the two visits was FAR less expensive than seeing the vet, having x-rays taken, blood drawn, and medication prescribed.

What Is PetLight Therapy?

The PetLight system is the Veterinary version of LightMD’s patented light therapy system. Approved by the FDA in 2015, for human therapeutic use, the PetLight system is non-invasive and stimulates the body’s natural healing response using flexible polymeric pads containing hundreds of solid-state superluminous diodes. PetLight’s efficacy comes from LightMD’s patented high output superluminous diode (SLD) system that is designed to provide the highest light output with built in safeguards to insure safe application of the photonic energy.

PetLight Effects

Using PetLight, patients can expect the following effects:

  • Increased circulation by increasing the formation of new capillaries, which are additional blood vessels that replaced damaged ones. New capillaries speed up the healing process by carrying more oxygen as well as more nutrients needed for healing and they can also carry more waste products away.
  • Stimulation of collagen production. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. Collagen is the essential protein used to repair damaged tissue and to replace old tissue. It is this substance that holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity. By increasing collagen production less scar tissue is formed at the damaged site.
  • Reduction in swelling through accelerated blood flow and lymphatic evacuation.
  • Pain Relief through release of natural analgesics within the body.

Our Science

The body is fully capable of healing itself when injuries occur. We’ve all experienced the different stages of healing and it can be a slow and painful process. Light therapy intervention significantly accelerates this healing process and reduces pain and inflammation. Thousands of studies to date prove that living cells are able to absorb light in the red and infrared spectrum and convert it into usable energy. This reaction produces a cascade of cellular activity and dramatically increases metabolism, which drives the appropriate healing response and reduces recovery time.

Increased Cellular Activity through ATP Generation

Light therapy can stimulate the release of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP). ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. Increases in ATP allow cells to accept nutrients faster and get rid waste products faster by increasing the energy level in the cell. All food turns into ATP before the cells utilize it. ATP provides the chemical energy that drives the chemical reactions of the cell.

Pain Relief

The photons of light energy enter the body as negative ions. This calls upon the body to send positive ions like calcium among others to go to the area being treated. These ions assist in firing the nerves, thereby relieving pain. Light therapy is successfully used in pain therapy, dermatology and rheumatology with excellent therapeutic effects in the treatment of shoulder humerus periarthritis, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Stimulates acetylcholine release and other parasympathetic effects.
