I discovered there is something that is very close to the magic wand from Star Trek! It is a cold laser unit. Yes, laser like they shoot into space, or use to cut things . . . except it is cold, and it will not burn.
If you are science-minded, this device “shoots a laser directly into the body’s cells stimulating enzyme release from the mitochondria that enhances and accelerates healing . . . both decreasing healing time as well as jump starting the healing of chronic conditions where the body has stopped producing these enzymes due to the length of the condition.”
When I heard about it, I knew you would want our animals to have it.
This little girl is wearing “Doggles” while undergoing laser therapy for a painful spinal issue.
The “Doggles,” doggie goggles, are to protect their eyes from the laser which will permanently blind anyone looking directly at it. Our staff wears the goggles as well. The nurse holds a little hood over the cat’s face so she is protected.
Our chief veterinarian, Dr. Brown, is very excited about the possibilities . . .and he says that major veterinary universities are using this cold laser now, including our own U C Davis, where we began the world’s first kidney dialysis program for animals about 25-years-ago. (That program changed dialysis protocols for humans the first three years it was in use!)
We have a unique situation here at DELTA Rescue. . . the only one in the world like it. Our animals are with us from rescue til death. Our medical records are complete with EKG, ultrasound, X-rays, blood tests, etc. Some day our records will be entered into a super computer in some university and new medical discoveries will be made based on our work in this lifetime.
The unit we need is seen here. The unit is light and portable and can be carried in a sling, and I can’t wait for us to use it on our horses! Because each of our horses suffered some sort of abuse before being abandoned, back and leg issues are common in our herd. We are hopeful that the laser will jump start our horses’ bodies into healing these chronic conditions.
We need at least two of these units at a cost of $60,000. One unit is for surgery where all animals with incisions will be treated for post op pain and more rapid healing. The second unit is for our animals with chronic conditions who will be treated three times a week.
