Veterinary Lasers for Dogs and Companion Pets
Broad (Tissue, Skeletal, Joint and Ligament) Therapy - Treating structural injuries and broad areas of damaged tissue is typically done with a large diameter emitter. Cold lasers for this application usually have a treatment diameter the size of dime to a silver dollar.
Power: The power controls the dosage and the dosage is the key to success. Too low a dosage and nothing happens. Too high and you get maximum pain relief but maybe not the optimum healing. Higher power lasers will provide a higher dosage in a reasonable amount of time and that will provide more noticeable results. Higher power laser do not push the energy deeper, only faster. Many smaller dosages can provide the same results as a few big doses and some practitioners think many smaller doses are actually better. Many pet owners do not have the patience to handle many smaller dosage so a more powerful system is required to provide more immediate results. (Read more about power requirements for lasers) We typically do not sell any system under 450 mW of power because lower power lasers deliver inconsistent results.
Wavelength: It is the wavelength that determines the depth of penetration (or the absorption rate of the light energy as it travels through of the tissue. Selecting the proper wavelength is critical to delivering consistent results. There is NOT one perfect wavelength for every application but studies show that 800 to 860nm is the best option for most therapies. For some applications (like superficial damage, abrasions, hoofs and cuts) Red (635nm) is the better wavelength. 905nm also provides good efficient energy transfer to the cells and deep penetration. In general, 980nm systems are extremely low efficiency therapy lasers. Most of the power at 980nm is absorbed by the water in the tissue. This will increase circulation in the area but 980nm systems are not the best option for many applications because any energy that is converted into heat is not converted in chemical energy which is the main goal of photobiomodulation.
Pulsing: In general, the consensus is that pulsing is better for most application and continuous wave is best for rebuilding nervous system damage (*See Study Here). Pulsing the laser adds additional benefits by stimulating the cells. In addition, pulsing the laser might keep the body from adapting to the input. The human body adapts to fixed inputs (like wearing clothes) and our bodies can react less continuous input over long periods of time. The same theory can be applied to lasers. This means that people with chronic problems that require long-term therapy might start to see declining results with a CW (Continuous Wave) fixed output laser. Based on current technology, we recommend buying a laser that does both pulsing and continuous wave output if it is within your budget. (Read More about pulsing and CW advantages)
For advanced users that will be treating a wide variety of conditions, a multiple wavelength, pulsing, and continuous laser with lots of power is the ultimate. If you just want a "point and shoot" laser, that will help your veterinary therapy without having to spend a lot of time on setup, buy the product with the most power that you can afford. If you must compromise focus on wavelengths, but make sure you get enough power. Consider pulsing as a second priority.
