Red Light Therapy is Great for Dogs and Cats!

Celluma Red Light Therapy for dogs, cats, horses, and even humans, is an interesting and potentially beneficial treatment option for the entire family.

The Origin of LED Technology

Low-level light therapy or LED light therapy originated as part of NASA space research for bone atrophy mitigation for astronauts. This technology has since found many applications in medical and veterinary care.

A Non-Invasive Treatment Option

Celluma Light Therapy is a non-invasive, non-toxic treatment that uses low-level light therapy to stimulate cells in the body, thus promoting natural healing and pain relief. It involves the use of specific wavelengths of light that penetrate the skin and stimulate energy levels in the tissues.

Benefits for Pets

Success Story

A dog was bit by a deadly black widow spider. The veterinarian removed all the necrotic tissue and used about 75 sutures to close the deep wound.  The dog owner used her Celluma over the dog’s wound for 6 weeks and the dog’s wound was almost fully recovered.

Clinical Evidence

In research conducted at the Beckman LASER Institute at the University of California, Irvine, Celluma was clinically proven to speed the rate of wound closure equaling or outperforming cold LASERs. Red light therapy has been shown to accelerate tissue repair, decrease wound size and accelerate wound closure, as well as reduce the pain associated with the healing process.

Celluma LED therapy is an excellent option for pet owners looking for a safe and effective non-invasive treatment for a variety of conditions.
