Low Level Laser Therapy for Veterinarians
VetLase 500

What is D3LT?

Deep Low Level Laser Treatment (D3LT) is a cold laser treatment that heals deeply through absorption and penetration of the light energy to the area treated.

VetLase 500 uses a patented D3LT wavelength of 1350nm which has the greatest absorption to the injured cells, therefore balancing the cells back to normalcy.

D3LT is the highest wavelength available for any low level laser equipment. Low level laser therapy for veterinary use with the VetLase 500 helps healing through absorption and penetration.

Is use of D3LT safe?

Low level laser therapy with the VetLase 500's use of the patented D3LT wavelength is one of the safest and most effective systems for bone and soft tissue healing available.

D3LT is under 1 watt, therefore it is safe through absorption of the 1350nm. The VetLase 500 is non-thermal, painless, and non-invasive.

What does the VetLase 500 accomplish that other veterinary lasers do not?

Due to the absorption of the patented wavelengths of VetLase 500 (100% at the cell), healing of injuries is much faster. This allows a shorter recovery time, including more rapid repair of deep soft tissue and open wounds to the bone without proud flesh formation.

The VetLase 500 has proven to reduce scar tissue and heal injuries that could be career ending for competitive animals as well as injuries that might have caused professional animals or family pets to be euthanized.

What can you treat with the VetLase 500 that other veterinary lasers cannot?

The VetLase 500 can treat through the hoof wall, which is thick and normally does not allow light energy to be absorbed.

VetLase treats laminitis and granulation of the hoof itself, which causes lameness issues and sore feet. The VetLase 500 can also be used safely directly on the spine and will treat infections that are open or closed.

Our system also heals deep tissue, such as scar tissue in horses and dogs, and OCD lesions in dogs, horses, and other family pets. In addition, the VetLase 500 treats periodontal problems.

Can the VetLase 500 treat deep muscle injuries?

The VetLase 500 has been proven effective for deep muscle injuries such as:

  • Deep suspensory
  • Deep hamstring and hip
  • Cervical issues
  • Soft tissue along and over the spine
  • Sacroiliac injuries
  • Lameness

How easy is the VetLase 500 to use?

Along with your VetLase 500 unit, you will receive a training manual and supporting DVD which includes the proper protocol and point placement for success and easy use.

You will be personally taught and certified in the use of the VetLase 500 technology and the ease of treating the animal properly.

Are the results permanent?
The healing of tissue is permanent because cells are treated which had become imbalanced from injury and affected soft tissue (and at times the bone). As your competitive animal/pet continues to function, these issues will become less and less problematic because the VetLase treatment balances cells back to normal which heals wounds and eliminates lameness issues and muscular soreness.

What is the power of most laser therapy devices on the market?

Class 3b range from 5 to 500 milliwatts, and Class 4 lasers are greater than 1000 milliwatts. Anything over 500 milliwatts can be dangerous, due to the greater potential to "burn" tissue.

What is the wavelength of the VetLase 500?

The VetLase 500 has a patented wavelength of 1350nm which produces quicker results and can treat areas other lasers cannot. This is due to the absorption rate of 100% at the cellular level. Cellular change means permanent change for spinal, muscle and lameness issues, as well as hoof and OCD.

Can the VetLase 500 be used in the treatment of laminitis?

The treatment of laminitis is possible because the 1350nm wavelength absorbs into the hoof, therefore, laminitis does not have to turn into a full blown founder.

Can the VetLase 500 be used to treat scar tissue?

The VetLase 500 can dissipate scar tissue completely, including proud flesh and scarring from a surgical procedure.

Are trainers and pet owners able to use the VetLase 500?

With the purchase of a VetLase 500 unit, you will receive personalized training along with the training manual and DVD. It is best to have the injury diagnosed by a veterinarian before proceeding with any treatment for your animal. Once diagnosed, you will know the specific area to administer effective treatment.

What about physical rehabilitation?

Depending on the severity of the injury and/or condition, after the therapist uses the VetLase 500 to treat the injury, additional rehabilitation therapy may be required. This may be active or passive. They may also recommend exercises to do at home, so that you have an active role in your pet’s rehabilitation.

If my pet has been diagnosed with a back injury can VetLase 500 help?

VetLase has had great success in the treatment and healing of spinal injuries in dogs, cats, and horses.

Can you treat acute and chronic otitis?

VetLase has had success healing otitis in dogs and cats. Since the VetLase 500 also treats fungal infections, we have been able to successfully treat the underlying yeast infection commonly associated with otitis.

Can you treat hot spots and lick granulomas?
After the veterinarian has found the cause of the problem, the VetLase 500 can be used to heal these skin conditions.

What if my dog or cat has IBS?

VetLase has had great success in treating this condition and other digestive problems.

I already have ultrasound and electric muscle stimulation machines, why should purchase a VetLase unit?

VetLase 500, which uses D3LT, can in most cases treat animal injuries and issues in ways that ultrasound and electric stimulation cannot. You cannot use electrical stimulation or ultrasound over the hoof or spine. They also cannot be used for lameness issues such as bowed tendons. The VetLase 500 is non-thermal, painless and non-invasive.

Are there any drug interactions with laser therapy?

You should wait at least seven days after steroid treatment. Over stimulation of the cell from combining the two may result in less than optimal results.

What are the contraindications to Laser?

The laser should not be used directly over the eyes, a gravid uterus, a known cancerous tumor, or over thyroid tissue.

Is this just an expensive infrared heat lamp?

No. D3LT is the most monochromatic due to its wavelength. Therefore, absorption to the cell and a permanent change will occur with use of the VetLase 500's 1350nm wavelength treatments.

Do you have any payment options if we'd like a VetLase 500 unit?

We offer lease and financing options for veterinary practices.
