TREATMENT PROGRAMS – Get Your Dog Moving Again!
=> Reduce inflammation
=> Reduce or eliminate pain temporarily
=> Accelerate wound closure and reduce injury pain
PROGRAM 1: INFLAMMATION AND PAIN
This program should be used twice daily on all forms of inflammation caused by osteo-arthritis (hip, elbow, knee dysplasia), swelling of the tendons, patellar luxation, sprain of the carpus, etc.
Protocol twice a day: Select the appropriate brush, depending on whether your pet has long or medium-length hair. A brush is not necessary for dogs with very short hair, unless you want to give a soothing massage to your best friend.
The brushes should separate the hair above the area to be treated and allow for more photons to reach the skin. Move the Dog Med Laser gently side to side until the laser turns off.
PROGRAM 2: TEMPORARY PAIN REDUCTION OR ELIMINATION
The 635 nm photons delivered by the Dog Med Laser are a safe and efficient alternative to pain medication in reducing or eliminating pain for a maximum of 12 hours. This works best on chronic or acute pain. If nerves are damaged, pain reduction may be difficult to achieve.
PROGRAM 3: ACCELERATION OF WOUND CLOSURE
The photons delivered by the Dog Med Laser stimulate the cells to multiply faster, stimulate macrophages to clean the wound, and – as a secondary positive effect – reduce wound pain. The acceleration of wound closure reduces infection risks and the time your pet must wear the collar of shame. Dogs will love that!
Protocol twice a day: You can apply the Dog Med Laser directly over an open wound, or you can apply the laser over dressing. Please check if the red laser beams are visible through the clean dressing prior to applying. If you see red light passing through the dressing, photons will reach your pet’s wound. If you see nothing it means that the dressing is too thick or made of opaque material.
