New York, NY – July 5, 2011 –Babette Gladstein, VMD, is proud to become Manhattan’s first veterinarian to offer K-Laser’s, Class IV, dual wavelength device, a new FDA-cleared device – the latest implementation of a tool that has been changing animal care. Dr. Gladstein is well-known for holistic and traditional therapies treating chronic pain, acute injuries and many other veterinary conditions, and is now using a Class IV therapy laser. It is a high-energy laser and penetrates deeply into the body to diminish pain and stimulate healing.
K-Laser is a high-power, dual-wavelength therapy laser that can provide immediate relief from chronic pain. It penetrates approximately 4cm and is 16 times more powerful than any Class 3B Laser. This laser has shown excellent results on surgical incisions and wounds. The higher power of Class IV Lasers delivers a therapeutic dosage of laser energy and relieves pain on the spot.

“I am committed to providing the very best in veterinary care to my patients,” says Babette Gladstein, VMD. “The K-Laser will provide a pain-free, drug-free, surgery-free treatment for many ailments in our pets, from hastening healing to alleviating chronic pain. Animals enjoy the treatment and no sedation is necessary.“
It is estimated that over 20% of pets suffer with pain due to arthritis caused by hip dysplasia, knee and back pain, spondylosis, traumatic injury, etc. Non-steroid anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), like Metcam, Rimadyl and Deramax have provided significant relief, but long-term use of these drugs can have some undesirable side effects. In addition, some animals are NSAID-intolerant. Cats are particularly sensitive to medications. K-Laser provides a safe solution for them.
K-Laser was FDA approved for humans in 2005 and used on animals for over 5 years. An estimated 25,000 dogs, cats and horses have benefited from the therapy. Treatments last 3-6 minutes per site and are comfortable for the patient. Typically six treatments are recommended.
Dr. Gladstein’s regenerative medical practice offers acupuncture, Prolotherapy, ultrasound, chiropractic care, electric stimulation, massage and other drug less treatments to keep pets feeling happy and healthy, naturally. Dr. Gladstein is available for house calls in the tri-state area.
Dr. Gladstein will also supervise the use of another Class IV laser at the New York Humane Society where she performs pro-bono rehabilitation and regenerative medicine therapies.
