Veterinary Low Level (cold) Laser

Veterinary Low Level (cold) Laser is an innovative therapy that provides a soothing, analgesic effect on the body as well as reaching the cellular level. It relieves pain, improves nerve function, and vascularity. It can stop muscle spasms and speeds tissue repair increases the development of muscle tissue and collagen and reduces inflammation throughout the body. 

The Erchonia PL5 two-headed laser used at this practice is a superior cold laser. Its gentle light wave penetration stimulates the mitochondria of the cells to restore and repair the problem areas. In addition, the light waves aimed at one set of cells cause the cells receiving the treatment to communicate with the other cells in the body to expand the healing messages to all other cells needed to complete the process. 


Especially effective on all muscular skeletal problems (back and spine/neck/joint/TMJ/etc.) it also has an outstanding positive effect on acute (accidents/trauma/burns/pain from injuries/non-healing wounds, etc.)  and chronic diseases (kidney/liver/adrenal/cushings/allergies/diabetes/lung congestion/irritable bowel disease/constipation/etc.).


Many chiropractors that treat people have been using this technology for over 40 years. It is only in the last 12 years that veterinarians have started to use this technology in their everyday practice. Every month, veterinary journals expound success stories of speeded up cures for difficult veterinary cases with the addition of low level (cold) laser therapy to the treatment regime.


L.A.S.E.R. stands for Light Amplification Stimulated Emission Rays, a way of directing highly concentrated coherent light of a concise wavelength to the muscles, tissues, organs, connective tissue, formed elements of the blood, the living matrix of the body, to direct all aspects of healing, growth, regulations of metabolism and general cell survival. This happens normally in our animal’s bodies but poor diet, disease, toxins, genetics, and aging take hold, the communications (the mitochondria in the cells) begin to fail as the tissues change and break down to the DNA.


The low level (cold) laser allows us to “dial-up” and “dial into” the body’s natural communication process. This artificial production of the cell’s natural wavelength and frequency gives us the ability to emulate the exact methodology that cells would use to heal themselves.


Depending on the severity of the problem a series of 6 to 12 treatments is suggested. The first four treatments usually occur within the first 2 weeks (2 treatments the same day one hour apart). After that, once a week treatments scheduled over the following three weeks. These treatments are cumulative so the faster they get done the quicker the results are seen. However, due to scheduling concerns, you can spread out visits.

Miraculous Cures Using Low Level (cold) Laser (LLLT)

Mimi, a 10 year old female spayed cat had been diagnosed with diabetes. She was being treated with 2 units on insulin twice a day for the last 4 years. After a series of twelve LLLT treatments Mimi no longer had signs of diabetes. There was no sugar in her urine and her blood glucose readings were in the normal range. Her owner stopped giving her insulin shots. It’s been at least 6 months since she was treated and is still free from diabetes.


Mimi’s housemate, Doris, an 8 year old female spayed cat, had just been diagnosed with diabetes when we started Mimi’s treatments. Her owner elected to just do LLLT therapy and never had to start Doris on insulin. Doris also is free from that disease.


Blossom, a 6 year old female cat, was suffering from chronic terrible allergies. His owner had been seeing a conventional veterinarian who has given Buffy steroid injections and antibiotics in the past to control this condition. The owner, tired of these conventional treatments that needed frequent repetitions and wasn’t curing the problem, brought Blossom to Dr. Elliot. Blossom's face was hairless with scabs and bumps on her head and face.  Her face was a deep dark pink color a sign of inflammation and seemed very uncomfortable. His owner reported she was constantly itching at home. After the first treatment the owner sent me an e-mail with the heading “Blossom Loves Laser”. Apparently that evening the dark pink had turned to normal pink color and the itchy behavior was 85% resolved without any other treatment. The cat will be returning for the total series of twelve treatments after which full resolution of this problem is likely.

Dr. Elliot extensively studied with Dr. Inman to master her treatment of dogs, cats and horses using the laser and activator (VOM) for a variety of conditions. See the links to videos that Dr. Inman produced for your education and benefit.
