Maddie was receiving laser therapy as part of post cruciate repair rehabilitation. During this laser treatment a mass was found on Maddie’s ventral neck. A FNAB of the mass was taken, which confirmed it was an abscess. Despite antibiotic treatment the mass did not resolve. The abscess was lanced and investigated under anaesthetic and an organic foreign body (7mm piece of wood) was removed. Due to the position of the wound a seroma formed which, despite bandaging and lancing, continued to grow. Laser therapy was then started to help reduce the swelling, treat any possible infection, and encourage wound healing.
The wound was kept clean and open to aid drainage. Maddie received MLS® laser treatments for 12 days, with the following protocols:
The owner is very happy with the results and continues to use MLS® laser treatments to manage Maddie’s post op cruciate repair.
