Celtic SMR Ltd - MLS Class 4 therapeutic laser

MLS Class 4 therapeutic laser

MLS Class 4 therapeutic laser

ASA Laser, Europe's longest established therapeutic laser company, with over 30 years experience in the industry,  has launched the MLS Class 4 therapeutic laser system for companion animals, exotics and equines in the UK.

Your partner in pain management and wound healing: By modulating inflammatory mediators, the MLS laser system is an effective alternative to NSAIDs with strong analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.  It can be used for a wide range of clinical applications from musculoskeltetal conditions such as osteoarthritis and muscle damage to inflammatory skin condition from otitis externa to lick granulomas . For the biochemical and physiological mechanism please see the downloadable peer reviewed papers.

MLS laser therapy increases the speed of wound healing by modulating blood corticosterone and cytokine levels. It can be used to speed the healing rate in chronic ulcers and skin wounds (see downloadable peer reviewed papers).

With its pain management and wound healing properties it is routinely used by practices post operatively as an effective alternative to NSAIDs. It can be used for routine neutering operations as well as dramatically reducing pain and inflammation for more invasive orthopaedic procedures.

The patented MLS system delivers pulsed and continuous laser emissions synchronised for the optimal therapeutic effect with wavelengths of 808nm and 905nm . The MLS system now comes with the Ultra Power head delivering maximum therapeutic effect, with quicker treatment times. The advanced MLS laser technology allows true pulsed emissions to achieve peak power of 75 watts, without the risk of tissue damage.

Class 4 laser therapy vs. NSAIDs:  Many clients prefer the use of laser therapy compared to NSAID medication as there are no side effects and the anti-inflammatory and analgesic benefits are quickly seen. For most osteoarthritis cases receiving NSAIDs, after the initial laser therapy course of 6 treatments, the animal can either have the dose of NSAIDs significantly reduced or taken off medication altogether. Depending on the severity of the condition, maintenance of pain management usually requires once a month follow up treatments. The animal is more comfortable, so the owner is happy and client practice loyalty increased.

Most insurance companies accept laser therapy treatment costs

Practice Growth:  Practices benefit from using laser therapy, with increased client satisfaction and interaction with the nursing team. Laser therapy is a significant new revenue stream for practices and is an increasingly important factor in practice growth with fast return on investment.

Marketing laser therapy to your clients: CelticSMR will help practices market laser therapy to their clients and produce waiting room marketing material including a quarterly newsletter that can be personalised with the practice details to promote the benefits of laser therapy to clients. 

Get your nursing team involved: After the initial veterinary diagnosis, routine therapy is generally carried out by the nursing team, increasing interaction with clients and their pets and growing practice loyalty. CelticSMR`s unique modular on line CPD provides the opportunity to increase clinical knowledge as well as CPD  certification

CPD: CelticSMR have developed a full CPD programme to ensure laser equipment is used optimally and safely by all members of the practice team. The course is monthly and at the end of each article a clinical assessment is provided leading to certification that can be included as part of the RCVS CPD requirement.

CPD: 1 day workshops for equine and companion animals will be held. Training is provided by veterinary physiotherapists in the companion animal and equine fields.

Mandy Clarkson BVMS MRCVS

Kerry Seabrook RVN

Head Nurse, GP Vets Basingstoke

''We have been using our laser on arthritic dogs for a few months now. The results have all been excellent, we can see the change in our patients and owners are giving great feedback. The unit is very easy to use and feels nice and robust."

Dr Mark Collins BVSC MRCVS

Partner/Veterinary Surgeon, Vets4Pets Eastleigh



"The addition of laser clinics within our practice has been met with much enthusiasm from our clients. The ease of use, coupled with fantastic hands on training and support from Celtic SMR has meant that the clinics have been easy to set up and run. Both clients and staff are amazed at the results! It has made a great difference to many families who can see a significant difference in the well being of their beloved pet!"

Dr Chris Vogt  BSc BVSc BSAVA PGCert (SAS) MRCVS

Practice Principal and Veterinarian, Polsloe Veterinary Clinic and Cranbrook Veterinary Centre


"We have been using the MLS laser from Celtic SMR in our clinic for a couple of years now. We have mainly used it to aid the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis, back pain and ACL injuries. The most visible and dramatic results have come where we have used the laser to treat non-healing or slow healing open wounds. A dog had an ulcer on a pad for over 4 months, resisting all attempts to get it to heal. After three sessions with the MLS laser, the pad was healed.

We have had clients from other practices seek us out in order to receive treatment, and almost all clients who have started their pets on the treatment are very happy to keep booking repeat appointments. Over time this is likely to create an accumulating mass of business."

Agfa Digital Healthcare Testimonials

DR Testimonials:

"We installed the wireless AGFA DR radiography system at Three Counties Equine Hospital early this year, to replace our trusty old AGFA CR machine.

We X-ray a lot of distal limbs, heads, necks and backs. We have been impressed with the consistent and excellent image quality, and enjoy the time saving afforded by the sequence setup system in the software.

I would thoroughly recommend the AGFA DR system for equine radiography. " 

Mark Georgetti BVSc, Cert ES(Soft Tissue) MRCVS

Three Counties Equine Hospital, Gloucestershire 


''We are delighted with our new AGFA Musica DR machine. Lightweight, easy to use and pleasant on the eye, we have found this machine to not only produce high quality radiographs but also generate a buzz amongst our clients. Celtic SMR provided us with excellent advice and guidance with regards to finding the machine that was correct for our practice, and also provided excellent training and support in the running of the kit.''

Ashley Stewart BVetMed MRCVS

Evoultion Farm Vets, Bridgwater

"Having this portable xray machine in the car when we are already on calls seems to generate more work. People often have xrays done when they weren't initially planning to do so. The pictures are instantly produced for the client to see and, commonly, diagnoses can be made immediately and treatment plans discussed and decided upon during the same day. It has not only generated a buzz amongst our clients, but also amongst our vets!"


Evolution Farm Vets, Bridgwater


"Since purchasing the original Agfa cabled DR system a couple of years ago I have been consistently pleased with the quality of the radiographs and the robustness of the system.

When recently considering a wireless solution I wanted the same high quality image combined with a compact form for optimum portability and ease of use.

I can honestly say the AGFA DX-D 45C wireless DR system has ticked all the boxes - great image (actually seems better), super fast acquisition and reliable wireless technology. Very happy customer."

CR Testimonials:

''We have always maintained the highest imaging standards in our practice, and continued to hold onto the belief that our conventional films were as good as any digital imaging. When we were considering a swap to digital, we wanted to make sure we made the right choice. We researched the market, spoke to colleagues all over the country, and trialled several digital processors before choosing the AGFA system.

Since installation, we have seen a 50% increase in radiographic throughput and revenue generation for the practice. The imaging quality is excellent, our radiographic throughput time has reduced, and we haven't had to repeat an exposure. In terms of cost, convenience, time saving and improved diagnostics, the switch to CR has been a no brainer." 

Mark.A.D. Overend BVMS GP Cert(Cardio) MRCVS

Small Animal Director, Cain Veterinary Centre, Mid-Wales


"The purchase of our AGFA CR30X digital processor from Celtic SMR nearly two years ago is probably one of the best decisions we made and one of the most useful pieces of equipment in the practice. It takes up far less space than our old dark room and the staff enjoy using it so much they are more inclined to follow up investigative work. We achieve great quality diagnostic images every time.

The time taken to produce multiple images is greatly reduced freeing up time for other work and reducing the time animals are under anaesthetic/sedation. There are no chemicals to deal with so it is better for the environment, better for the staff and in addition there are no hard copy images to take up storage space for years. My only regret is that we did not purchase it sooner."
