Scar treatment post surgery - Veterinary laser therapy
Male elephant. age 5 years
Laser therapy in veterinary medicine is common since many years but the treatment of an elephant is not the "daily bread" of the average veterinarian. Our customer, Dr. Hollenbach, was prepared for this challenge and he performed the vet laser therapy (LLLT) probably for the first time on an elephant. The vet therapy was required because of obstruction of the urethral system caused by scars and infection after surgery. The vet laser therapy was successful and led relieve and to complete healing.
