D. How did you know the MLS® Laser Therapy?
R. Two years ago, in Udine, I visited an exhibition dedicated to cats. ASAveterinary was present with its own stand where I stopped to ask for more information in order to deepen the method of application and indications on its use in small animals and in horses.
D. Why did you decide to equip your Surgery of the Therapy?
R. Always in Udine, during the exhibition, I also attended a conference where the theme was deepen making me more and more sure of the usefulness of MLS®. I had already had news about it so I decided to visit the company website for further details. The combination of these circumstances convinced me of its usefulness for my profession.
D. Based on your experience, what adjectives would you choose to define the MLS® Laser Therapy?
R. Easy to apply, effective in the treatment of various diseases and in tune with the needs of the animal’s owner.
D. Mphi Vet: what are the strengths of the device for MLS® use?
R. When the patient is an animal we must rely on therapies and devices that are primarily comfortable to use and not complicated. The MLS® device has both of these features: easy to carry is also valuable for interventions outside of the Surgery and intuitive in the use, it makes easy the therapy usage.
D. Compared to the clinical cases treated, in what circumstances the use of MLS® has been particularly appropriate?
R. The cases are various, but two examples in particular encode the effectiveness of the therapy: in just 15 days of MLS® therapy, a wiener dog crushed by a car saw the complete healing of the wound following the surgical operation for removal a considerable amount of skin in the abdomen area. The second case involves a donkey with a strong osteoarthritis of the hip that prevented the movement: 6 sessions of Laser Therapy have allowed him to walk again. Periodically we repeat the treatment to support it.
D. How do the owners perceive the use of Laser Therapy?
R. Very well: no doubts or hesitation when I suggest it to the owners because they can quickly see their pet recover to a better quality of life, and thanks to no side effects, it doesn't cause pain.
D. Compared to protocols available, which one do you use mostly?
R. I use very often the protocol "acute inflammation" in dogs, while in the horses I resort more frequently to programs dedicated to "edema" and "back pain".
