Black Labrador Retriever Receiving MLS Laser Therapy TreatmentOver the past two decades, laser therapy has seen considerable growth in human and animal medicine providing a conservative approach to pain and inflammation. The MLS Therapy Laser, offered exclusively by Cutting Edge, is an advanced Class IV laser technology that uses a patented emission system to synchronize two specific wavelengths of photon energy known for their antiphlogistic, antiedemic, analgesic and regenerative/reparative effects.

This therapy offers a solution to patients unable to tolerate conventional analgesic pharmacotherapy as well as those who did not see desired effects with medication alone. MLS Laser Therapy can also be used in conjunction with pharmaceutical analgesics as well as other therapeutic modalities common in veterinary medicine, such as electrotherapy and magnetotherapy, to further improve outcomes.

Through this long-term partnership, Cutting Edge and CRI hope to leverage their unique strengths and competencies to provide comprehensive high-quality continuing education opportunities that elevate the field of canine rehabilitation.


Cutting Edge Laser Technologies is focused on providing non-pharmacological and non-invasive solutions for pain management, wound healing, post-surgical recovery, and tissue regeneration. Since their founding in 2021, the Cutting Edge mission has remained the same: provide high-value medical equipment to medical and veterinary professionals that elevate the quality of care while improving their bottom line.
