Wauchope Team

Welcome to Wauchope Veterinary Clinic

We are honoured that yet again our Veterinary Colleagues, this time the amazing team at Wauchope Veterinary Clinic, have chosen to switch to our Vets1laser laser therapy machine to continue on their veterinary medical laser journey. Wauchope Vet Clinic’s dedicated staff will now be able to add another point of difference-in this instance Laser/PBM therapy-to the already excellent care and range of services they provide to companion animals in the Wauchope/Port Macquarie area.


Welcome to Sugarloaf Animal Hospital

A huge thanks to all the amazing team, led by Simon and Dr Katie, at Sugarloaf Animal Hospital, West Wallsend of their time and collegiality during our training and installation on Wednesday. It was lovely to deliver a training lecture amongst such an engaged, curious and committed Veterinary team. We look forward to hearing of some wonderful treatment outcomes using the Vets1laser. Thanks to the dedication of this caring Sugarloaf Vet team, Companion and Pocket Pet owners of the West Wallsend and Newcastle area are able to easily access the opportunity to add in a new safe, drug-free, medical therapy to assist their beloved pet on the road to recovery from any illness, great or small.

Hoppy Rabbits

Welcome to Dr Mae of Hoppy Housecalls, Canberra

A big welcome to the amazing Dr Mae Hingee of ‘Hoppy Housecalls’ Canberra, who has chosen our Vets1laser medical therapy machine with which to continue her photobiomodulation journey. We are delighted to have such a knowledgeable and dedicated vet as Dr Mae chose our Vets1laser company for her medical Laser/PBM therapy needs. The rabbit owners of Canberra are indeed very lucky to have such a dedicated rabbit Vet amongst them and will no doubt soon see firsthand, the wonderful drug-free medical benefits that Dr Hingee’s therapy machine will deliver for their own pets.

What Happens If The Safety Glasses Not Tolerated?


What happens when the animal patient won’t tolerate the safety googles or are just too tiny for even the cat googles?
Covering their eyes with your hand is not a valid Plan B as depending on the power used, enough light to damage their eyes can still pass through your hand.
Dr Aine has done some experiments with safety physicists to narrow down what common materials might be used to reduce the ocular risk to the veterinary patient. The results of that work will be available next week to our Vets1laser clients on our website in the library section under Treatment Tips so make sure to look out for the new treatment tip post.

A Warm Welcome & Congratulations

A Warm Welcome and  Congratulations.

Welcome to our newest Vets1Laser users : Bomaderry Veterinary Hospital & Four Paws Rebab Centre. The dedicated Veterinary and Rehab Centre staff offer an extra-ordinary range of veterinary services for their local area. We were delighted and honoured when their team, already seasoned laser therapists, chose our Vets1laser machines to facilitate their team’s onward journey with all things veterinary laser/pbmt 

Congratulations also to Dr David for celebrating his 2nd anniversary of using our Vets1laser machine at his own practice, by purchasing an additional machine to deal with the increased demand from his successful implementation of Laser/PBM therapy into his veterinary practice

Kudos to waterwalkies for committing to a Laser Safe Work Zone

When it comes to Laser/pbm therapy-All That Glitters is Not Good.

Top marks to the team at waterwalkies and their detailed commitment to creating a Laser Safety Zone for their treatment sessions. It has been a joy to train this team of focused professionals to implement laser/pbm therapy into their treatment sessions. You don’t have to know much about laser safety to see the quantum safety differences in waterwalkies setup compared to so many other laser therapy images posted on various social media.


Yes, there is an Optimal Time: Mornings.

However, that doesn’t mean that Laser/PBM therapy sessions scheduled for other times of the day won’t work. You will get efficacy from PBM applied any time of the day so continue to schedule appointment times as it suits you and the client.

However, if you have the luxury of booking treatment sessions in a Morning slot, then do so in preference for two particular reasons.

                1)Morning sessions are preferred if this is the First time the animal is having laser. This is simply so as to have the full working day to find out if this particular patient gets a strong ergogenic response to the treatment.

If so then that animal will be a bundle of energy and sleep will be the last thing on their mind. This means the pet and the owner might very well have a sleepless night if the pet decides come bedtime, that it is still time to play and play and not sleep. 

Therefore on the occasions that you can’t schedule a morning appointment, be sure to cheerfully alert the client that the pet could be active for longer than normal. Most clients if prewarned are then fine if they are up all night with a super active happy pet. 

This ergogenic effect doesn’t always occur, some animals in fact are the opposite and want to sleep around the clock. Again clients should be pre-warned that this can happen so that they don’t panic after hours at a pet who just wants to stay curled up in bed after a laser treatment.

                2) Mitochondria are ‘Morning’ Workers.

Mitochondria are the main targets for Red-NIR wavelengths so it makes sense to treat when the target is most responsive. Some studies indicate that early morning, or at a minimum within 8 hours of awakening, is the time when mitochondria have spare capacity and are most sensitive to having improvements in the function of cytochrome C complex and ATP production. 

At the start of the day, ATP levels are high which results in a homeostatic reduction in complex activity as demand is low, with mitochondria only needed to top up the system which has not been drained by previous activity. Later when respiration increases, complex activity is elevated as ATP levels declined due to consumption. Mitochondria later in the day have reduced spare capacity to respond as daily activity has increased their workload.

 So where possible-Choose Morning Treatment Times.
