Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"I have used BIOLASE's EPIC V-Series diode laser for a variety of
veterinary dental and non-dental surgeries on just about every
imaginable animal, including all of the major primates, all of the
big cats, a variety of bears, and most of the marine mammals," said
Dr. David Fagan, founder of the Colyer Institute. "I've also used
BIOLASE's WaterLase all-tissue laser on the teeth, tusks, and related
bones of the face in most of these same species. BIOLASE's technology
is integral to my ability to successfully treat exotic animals at
zoos, universities and institutes around the world."
There are approximately 70,000 veterinarians and nearly 34,000
veterinary clinics in North America. This market segment is expected
to increase 35 percent over the next 10 years. There are also more
than 100,000 veterinarians and 30,000 veterinary clinics in Europe.
Further, according to research from the Freedonia Group, a leading
international business research company, consumer spending on
domesticated animals in the U.S. alone is forecast to reach $44
billion in 2014.
Federico Pignatelli, Chairman and CEO, stated, "We are proud to
support Dr. Fagan and his work with the Colyer Institute treating
exotic animals. It is truly fascinating to see the pictures or videos
of him performing surgeries at zoos and wild animal parks on exotic
animals ranging from apes and leopards to walruses and dolphins. It
is also remarkable to see the dramatic effects on animals from the
pain relief provided by our diode and WaterLase laser technology
because there is no placebo effect."
