WatchdogMary live with Dr. Ronald Hirschberg (Brockton Animal Hospital) demonstrating and talking about Photobiomodulation (laser therapy) for dogs.
Please note Ron is working with a LED probe for the demonstration, hence no need for laser safety glasses.

“The seminar last Sunday in Austin was excellent. I learned tons and am so excited to use my laser to it’s fullest capacity. I will be ordering the 810nm probe soon. I would very much like to attend another seminar so I can get more out of the volume of information presented. Thank you again!”

The picture below is of a cougar treated by exotic animal veterinarian Jenny Conrad. She reports that “Pirate had a seizure of unknown origin and fell off his perch. He’s not usually this approachable but he seemed to like his LLLT treatment and let us work on him for about an hour. He purred the whole time. He seems to be feeling better this afternoon”.
