Abstract
Bowed tendons in the horse can greatly hinder it's racing career. A pulsed, 904 nm, infrared GaAs laser, peak power 2 watts, averaging .4 mW, 10 diodes per head, was used in reducing the area of the bowed tendon. This treatment proved to capacitate the horse for better race performance. Before application of the laser the wound area was shaved. A cast of playdoe was formed over the affected area. The cast was then removed and spread over a sheet of paper which consisted of a drawing of a grid in square centimeters. The squares were then counted.
