The current use of both surgical and therapeutic lasers in veterinary medicine has multiplied exponentially just in the last few years. Unfortunately, many veterinarians, technicians or laser therapists have had little or no training concerning their safe use.
There are standards established by the American National Standard Institute, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery which contain enforceable guidelines for the safe use of lasers in veterinary practice and research.
We recommend very strongly that each practice develop safe protocols for the use of their laser equipment and appoint a Veterinary Medical Laser Safety Officer on the staff to insure compliance with the current standards of safe use.
