Summerhill Equine Veterinary Partnership LLP

“...we need two machines to do the work the lasers have generated in our 4-vet ambulatory equine practice. The K-Lasers have been mostly used for wounds especially where underlying tendons and ligaments are also injured, splints, and back pain that has not responded to routine treatments. Where there is a need for speed and quality of healing the clients are happy to pay for the extra help given by the K-Laser and where other modalities have failed at times the K-Laser has been a great help. The machine is portable, easy and quick to use and seems to penetrate tissue well. I wouldn’t want to be without one in my car” - June 2018

Luton Vets4Pets

“The introduction into the practice has been an easy and straight forward transition and clients have seen and are grateful of the positive results. The team has been amazed by the effects of the K-Laser on wound healing, leading us to change our consent forms to an opt out option rather than an opt in to reflect this. Nurses were able to see obvious differences in those that had received K-Laser treatment in comparison to those who had not. All equipment received from the start was appropriate, although we quickly required a K-Laser stand to keep everything together and safe from damage. The K-Laser is permanently out on the side in the preparation area due to its continuous use by all team members.

The K-Laser is very straight forward to use with the multitude of programmed settings suitable for varying sizes, species, areas and conditions for treatment. As we continue using the K-Laser I can see that there may be a requirement for staff to learn more about it, but I have seen that there is a course available by an external provider in collaboration with VBS that may be appropriate.

Training at instalment was excellent for all with regards to the various uses and science behind the K-Laser. On-line modular training allowed all users of the K-Laser to ensure that they were aware of health and safety implications. Practical elements of training have been provided when Stephen has been in the practice. Local laser safety rules were provided as a template to ensure health and safety protocols were followed so that all that was required by the practice was the completion of a risk assessment.

I have worked alongside Stephen for a number of years and his compassion for alternative treatment options and his expansive knowledge of the science behind his reasoning shines through in his treatment of all of his patients. VBS Direct provides an excellent level of service and outstanding understanding of the K-Laser and the practical implications for its use. K-Laser has become a major part of the vet and nurse clinics.”

Cardiff Bay Vets4Pets

”We have been using the K-laser at our Vets4Pets branch in Cardiff Bay for several months and within a very short time were exceeding expectations both in terms of profit and efficacy of treatment outcomes. We had trialled a competitor laser which, admittedly, was lower in price to purchase, but the K-Laser soon proved its worth in its speed of treatments and clinical outcomes. Crucially, the K-Laser scientific papers and proof of dosage accuracy, coupled with the ongoing training and marketing support from VBS, has enabled us to become a competent, efficient laser therapy clinic earning healthy revenue as a K-Laser provider. We are delighted with the customer feedback and patient outcomes and continue to draw new customers from the surrounding area, as well as building on the relationship with our existing client base, through this therapy.”

Clerkenwell Animal Hospital

“It wasn’t that I wasn’t expecting to see results, it was the fact that the results were happing more quickly than I expected…. We book them as 15 minute appoints…You really do build up a bond with owners because you’re spending that time with them…. You’ve got the opportunity to discuss other ways you can help them or ways in which they can benefit from any other services we offer….It’s got everyone working together.”
Debbie Cornish, Veterinary nurse, Clerkenwell Animal Hospital, London England

Molesey Veterinary Centre

“What amazed me was the return on investment and goodwill from clients whose pets were undergoing laser therapy. Right from the beginning we were seeing on average 6 cases per day and turning over close to £1000 every week. This is new money coming into the practice and differentiates us from the surrounding veterinary practices.”

"Apart from the initial consultation and follow up assessment near the end, this is an entirely nurse lead team. My highly qualified nurses are able to spend time with each patient and see the improvements with the owners over the sessions, this has benefits for all aspects of the services we offer small animal clients."
Darren Partridge MRCVS, owner of Molesey Veterinary Centre

Video Testimonial from Oundle Vets

Oundle Vets have been using a K-Series therapeutic laser since July 2012. This video gives a vet nurses perspective on using the K-series laser in practice. It highlights the benefits class 4 laser therapy brings to the pets, client relationships and practice as a whole.

Clerkenwell Animal Hospital

“We have had a number of successes that can only be put down to the influence of the K-laser. They include: a rapid resolution of a difficult infected, non-union plated forelimb fracture referred from another practice, improve recovery times after TPLO surgery, significant pain reduction and lameness in animals with elbow arthritis or degenerative joint disease where NSAIDS have ceased to be effective, and impression wound healing where significant skin loss occurred after a dog attack meant that a large area of secondary intention healing needed to take place.”
Mark Lindfield MRCVS, owner of Clerkenwell Animal Hospital, London, England

Northlands Vet Hospital

“When discussing laser therapy, the first thing that impressed me was the amount of enthusiasm the clients showed. All have been intrigued with this treatment modality. I was a little concerned initially about owner compliance, especially during the start of treatment, but all seemed more than willing to return for successive treatments. After each animal had the first few sessions, the results became apparent. They were good! Not only from a post-surgical pain/inflammation viewpoint, but also from animals which have been struggling with osteoarthritis for a long while. The most successful case so far is a 5 year old Lab which has been struggling with OA due to bilateral elbow dysplasia since only a few months old… it’s had every form of treatment to date, with only mildly satisfactory results. Since starting laser therapy, the dog is now able to get up without difficulty, exercise well, and bound around like its been wanting to do for years. My other main experience involves using laser therapy for delayed/non-union fractures. When these animals were diagnosed with delayed/non-unions, laser therapy was started, and 3-4 weeks further on, healing was evident in all but one case without further surgical intervention. I’m thrilled with the results this piece of technology has given us so far.”
Shaun Smith BVetMed, CertSAS, MRCVS, Northlands Vet Hospital

Village Vets, North Wales

 “Great results, love the machine and working with clients. Well over 50+ individual cases treated in 3 months, delivered 335 sessions so far, all cases had a good response, some more than others, overall 95% of cases had a significant improvement. It is used on a daily basis, some days up to 12 sessions, other days 2 or 3. We charge £29.00 per sessions. Client compliance is fantastic, also got new clients. We are doing a clinical study on wounds, with phenomenal results: one dog had his paw sliced over a piece of glass, wound 4-5cm long, 1.5cm wide, 1 cm deep, stitched twice, it wasn't healing: after 5 applications the wound was completely gone! We use it mostly on osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal injuries, cruciate operations, hip dysplasia. Most of cases can reduce medications and even come off completely.”
Mr. James Bigglestone MRCVS and Miss Jo Williams RVN, Village Vets, North Wales.

Lester Pet Care

“We use it at least 2 - 4 times per day: arthritis, back, hips, cruciate ligament in a dogs, musculo- skeletal injuries, pre/post orthopaedic cases, a cat with broken jaw that improved immediately after laser therapy, elderly dogs with osteoarthritis alongside with acupuncture (pet are more lively if they had laser + acupuncture, than acupuncture alone). Some reactions are instant: Hayley's dog stopped limping after the first application. Everybody notices improvements after the course of 6 apps. Client compliance is very good, we have new clients coming in by word of mouth having met patients we have treated.”
Lisbeth Lester MRCVS, Lester Pet Care, Wigan, Lancashire.

All Pets Vet Care, Milford Haven

AllPetsVetCare219x150.jpg“This absolutely amazing little machine (and it is indeed quite small) is delivering the most fantastic results in the treatment of loads of different conditions. We had arthritic dogs who could not move around pain free even on two different painkillers now being able to jump up again and cats finally being able to venture out into the garden again. It helps against skin infections, speeds up wound and fracture healing, can be used for cats with chronic gingivitis and a whole range of other problems!

The animals don't require sedation for it, all it involves is running the laser over the area for several minutes. For most conditions a series of between 4 and 6 treatments are advisable, in some chronic cases a regular "top-up" may be needed. We have lots of happy pets and happy owners - it's so nice to see those results!”
Billa Schleicher MRCVS, All Pets Vet Care, Milford Haven, Wales.

Alphavet
Abbeydale Vets

 “We have treated an enormous amount of patients with all the clients liking the laser technique and enjoying being part of the therapy process. I have seen numerous cases post surgically that are walking and exercising far quicker than I would have seen previously over the years – the joints appear less inflammed and painful after operations, and the animal’s demeanour improved. It combines well with the general physiotherapy that we can advise customers to do on their pets. We have also seen significant improvements in chronic moist eczemas, gingivitis and a whole range of other acute and chronic conditions. We are very happy with how well the machine has fitted into our practice, it is going extremely well.”
Martin Gabbutt MRCVS, Abbeydale Vets, Blackburn, Lancashire.

Oundle Vets

OundleVets125x199.jpg“We are really enjoying having the K-Laser in our hospital for wounds and post-surgical use. Over 2/3rds of our operations are having it as standard treatment, including all our neuters, as we offer it at a very competitive price. We, and the owners are seeing improvements across the board, and our owners are spreading the word about the laser and its effects, so recruiting new cases is easy. On chronic wounds and lick granulomas we have had great results and owners are so relieved to have a treatment option after years of struggling to cope. Also lacerations and nasty abscesses, and especially cut pads we have had fantastic results with complete healing in 2 ½ to 3 weeks instead of the usual 5-6 week period. This reduces a lot of stress for us and the owners.

OundleVets177x131.jpgOwner compliance is really good, we have a client whose dog falls asleep after 30 seconds of the laser, this gives us an opportunity to really talk to the owners about general pet health and build a good relationship. It is good as a nurse to have something that is quite tangible to work with that we can go back to the vets and report on the progress of cases, the vets are always really happy with how it is going”
Jennie Tansley RVN, Oundle Vets, Northamptonshire

Manor Farm Veterinary Surgery

"I have become increasingly interested and excited about the K laser. I believe it to be the treatment of the future and its many benefits are being discovered almost daily. Laser energy increases circulation, drawing blood & nutrients to the area, where the laser then stimulates the release of oxygen to the damaged tissues, creating an optimal healing environment. The laser also increases energy at the cellular level and reduces pain and inflammation by a direct effect on the nerves."

"We are proud to be one of the very few vets in the whole of the South West to offer this treatment and have made it surprisingly affordable. It is a huge success with our clients, especially for helping to treat arthritis and speeding up healing after surgery."

Margaret Collins MRCVS, Manor Farm Veterinary Surgery

Medivet Forest Lodge Veterinary Centre

ForestRow141x226.jpg "We did a young German shepherd with severe hip dysplasia. After 3 – 4 sessions we saw an amazing improvement, you honestly could not say he had hip dysplasia. This young dog had hip bone architecture changes that should have resulted in surgery. There was a bad dog bite case that we gave daily wound K-Laser sessions for five days, the wound healed very nicely without any signs of infection.”
Alex Selles Llorens MRCVS, 
Medivet Forest Lodge Veterinary Centre, Forest Row, East Sussex.

Queens Park Vets, West London

“We tried another less expensive Class 3b brand of laser therapy but found the results in cases of osteoarthritis were not nearly as impressive as those with the K - laser. We made the leap and brought the more expensive unit because we have confidence in the efficacy of the K laser, we have not looked back”
Stewart Halperin MRCVS, Owner of Queens Park Vets, West London

Chiswick Pet Care Clinic

“We trialled a class IIIB laser and were not convinced it was helping animals with DJD. The K-Laser is so user friendly that all the veterinary staff can administer doses and we have seen great results in NSAID dose reduction in our chronic DJD cases. The owners are really behind it. I really appreciate the impact it has in wound healing as well. A useful piece of kit for our clinic.”
James Bennett MRCVS, Head Vet at Chiswick Pet Care Clinic

Glasgow University Physio Department

We have had the klaser for approx. 2 years at GUVS and we use it on every patient we see through the physiotherapy / hydrotherapy service as all patients present with some element of pain / inflammation. We have had very good results for tendon (luxating patella) and ligament injuries (partial CCL tears) which were managed conservatively and did not require surgery. Previously when the partial CCL patients were rested then exercise was reintroduced the partial tear almost always became a full tear. The Klaser reduces inflammation (effusion) associated with the ligament injury and reduces scar tissue and the ligament heals with good fibre alignment giving strength and flexibility so much less likely to re injure the ligament. I think for the tendonitis type problems (lux patella) the laser acts in a similar way to cortisone injections. Once the inflammation around the tendon is controlled with the laser the tendon tracking is improved and the patella is stabilised.

We also use the laser a lot for chronic condition such as Hip Dysplasia in my previous experience of these cases the HD would tend to remain the same and the progression of secondary arthritis was reduced with physio and hydro alone. Now I am finding with the addition of K-Laser therapy the patients are regaining almost 100% range of motion in the hip joint which was previously reduced to around 60% I also strongly recommend these patients also have a good joint supplement.

Post-surgery the K-Laser is very good at enhancing wound healing. Again, if scar tissue is a problem over a joint surgery the laser is very good at minimising this. The cost of the laser treatment is absorbed into the physio / hydro session. However sometimes we see patients who only receive K-Laser treatment at this is priced at £15. If you explain the benefits of the laser therapy to your clients I am sure they will accept it. If you are using it on all your post-surgical patients, you could just incorporate it into the surgery price.
