Photobiomodulation for Pets
PBM therapy for pets works the same way as the therapy does in humans. It improves tissue repair, reduces pain, and reduces inflammation. These all affect your pet’s physical and mental health and left unchecked, can lead to many other chronic conditions.
Studies have shown that applying red LED and near infrared light to an inflamed area can make a significant difference in reducing inflammatory numbers in the blood after only 30 minutes. Best of all, the high intensity single point lasers can release trigger points and treat acupuncture points instead of using needles.
Total You Health uses a Veterinary Portable Thor PBM system and uses company protocols for conditions that affect pet clients. It can help with muscle, tendon, and ligament injuries, pain management from trauma and post-surgical wounds, inflammation and swelling, wound healing, degenerative disc disease and more.
Anti-inflammatory drugs do not heal, cannot be used before a competition, and often have side effects. PBM is best delivered as soon as an injury occurs but is helpful at any point in the recovery process.
There are over 1,000 laboratory and clinical trials published in medical journals proving that PBM can heal soft and hard tissue, but also offer pain relief and rapidly resolve inflammation without the side effects of drug therapies and for less cost.
Photobiomodulation therapy is applied to our equine clients by thoroughly trained Total You Health employees. For over seven years, Linda Bailey has been using PBM on human and pet clients with significant results.
What our clients say
I recently added a mini Australian Shepherd to my family named Twoey. He received his second round of vaccinations as well as a Bordetella injection at the beginning of June. That evening he was very lethargic and did not want to get up off the floor. Twoey is usually a very hyper puppy and follows me everywhere so the fact that I had to use treats just to get him to get up and move made me a bit worried. He was also very sore from his injection sites and would cry if I accidentally touched them. I reached out to Linda and she had me come over so she could use the Thor DDV veterinary spot treatment on Twoey. She treated all around where he had received his injections. When Twoey and I got home I could already see a difference. He walked me all over the yard and a little bit later he had a burst of energy and wanted to play. The next morning he was his usual hyper self and did not seem to be sore at all. He was chasing me and my brother all over the house. I am so grateful we were able to get in to see Linda and have Twoey receive a treatment. I am already planning on having him receive another treatment after his next round of vaccinations.

"I am so grateful to have Total You Health and PBM therapy available in our area! The staff is very knowledgeable, professional and truly wants the best outcome for you. This therapy has been extremely effective in treating my joint inflammation and general aches and pains due to arthritis and Lymes disease. I researched medical evidence and discovered all the benefits of PMB treatments as a pro-active means of treating illness before it develops such as dementia and Alzheimer's. I want to stay ahead of any health issues that may arise and feel PBM therapy is one of the most natural and effective approaches I can take to maintain my health.
The real proof and beauty of this noninvasive form of treatment came from my canine! Chloe, is an 11 year old golden retriever. She suffered from severe arthritis with joint pain that limited her mobility and mood. She was always very willing but unable to play or walk without obvious pain. She has gone thru many different trials of medications, exercises and even acupuncture to help reduce her pain. All methods did help somewhat but nothing has been as effective as PBM therapy. I inquired with Linda to see if she would do a PBM treatment on Chloe. Linda was eager to give it a try and the results have been amazing! After only 3 treatments, Chloe is once again playful, able to chase squirrels and go for a daily walk! The real truth comes from Chloe's happy tail thumping , gentle nudges and kisses she gives Linda and staff while undergoing treatment. "
