About this item
This guide for veterinarians emphasizes day-to-day clinical applications of photobiomodulation and laser therapy in veterinary medicine, for uses such as pain management, wounds, physical and neurological conditions, injury and geriatric rehabilitation, and performance maintenance in horses and canine athletes. The first six chapters of the book provide a review of the history, theory, basic science, and safety of laser therapy, along with an overview of the use of laser physics in veterinary medicine and an explanation of basic principles of photobiomodulation and its effects at the cellular, tissue, and system levels. After these opening chapters, the next section on practical applications covers general principles of laser therapy, contraindications, special considerations, and precautions. Later sections describe clinical applications of laser therapy in various types of animals: dogs, cats, horses, reptiles, birds, small exotic animals, and food animals. The final section is devoted to integrating laser therapy into the veterinary clinic, with material on marketing, return on investment, and the role of veterinary technicians and nurses in laser therapy. The art program offers color and b&w clinical photos, medical images, illustrations, and diagrams on every page. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
