vet laser treatment

An increasingly effective mode of treatment for pain management in the veterinary field, laser therapy continues to evolve as a rapid and economical form of treatment. As a non–pharmacological and non-invasive application, laser therapy can be used to quickly treat a range of ailments in animals. Clinical trials continue to demonstrate notable improvement across a broad range of common physiological strains and tears in animals.

The most advanced handheld laser

Released in early 2013, Laserex launched the highly anticipated Laser 3000 V3.2, the most advanced therapeutic laser ever developed in a hand held, high-powered unit. Specifically designed for use as an equine or greyhound therapy laser, the Laser 3000 was developed after a spike in demand for a high-powered portable unit with an ergonomic design. The Laser 3000 is the ideal choice for both owners and trainers looking for ongoing, effective and clinically proven treatment of their animals to ensure a speedy recovery.

Applications and recovery

Completely safe and easy to use, the Veterinary Laser 3000 can be used to manage a wide range of common injuries, such as damage to the tendons, the healing of bruises and contusions, ligament distress, stiffness and pain or arthritic conditions, fetlock and hock injury, back pain and tendonitis. It can also be applied to acupuncture points and will assist in cell rejuvenation. Using the infra-red wavelengths, the Laser 3000 has deep treatment capability and works by promoting faster healing and stimulation of the nerve function. Laser therapy is also known to restore metabolic function. Encouraging the release of endorphins, laser therapy increases vascular action while it decreases inflammation, and is often applied in order to bring mobility back into arthritic joints and tendons.

Proof is in the pudding

Clinical trials document significant benefit in the application of laser treatment, as reported in the trial of GaAIAs lasers to treat horse injuries. Nineteen horses with chronic inflammation of tendons and/or ligaments had not responded well to conventional treatment, were then treated using diode laser therapy without medication. With treatments applied once a day or once every two days, Of 19 cases, 12 (63.2%) were cured, five (26.3%) were improved and two (10.5%) were unchanged.
