The clinical case of a 2-year python affected by a severe stomatitis which underwent MLS® sessions highlights how laser therapy, an alternative intervention compared with those commonly used (irrigation, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medication), to tackle the pathology is able to produce a good result in limited timeframes.
Only 8 sessions with two distinct protocols (“infected wound” and “chronic inflammation”) over 23 days were needed before the snake showed clinical signs of a marked improvement, visible already after the first 3 sessions.
The study carried out therefore confirms that MLS® Laser Therapy is recommended to deal with particularly severe cases of stomatitis which generally require lengthy healing times.
