Laser Treatment Update

Since Friday was Natasha’s monthly vet visit, we thought we would give you a quick laser treatment update.

Well, Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery might have been better, but I like coming to our vet.

ready for another month

Ready for another month of keeping The Herd in line.

After an initial several treatments over two weeks back in December, Natasha now goes for a laser treatment once a month to keep her arthritis under control. She is back to running, jumping, and playing, so we are big believers. If you know of a senior dog with arthritis, or a dog recovering from a muscular injury, we highly recommend talking to your vet about the applicability of laser treatment.

    Hello, I am the Spineless Bionic Hip/knee dog from Meeshka’s World. I get laser treatment and massage every other week. It works! Plus, I love the warmth of the laser, and the deep tissue massage, and the comfy bed and the treats I get during my spa time. I highly recommend it!

    I’m so glad to hear it’s helping the Queen. I’ve wondered about how effective it is… Perhaps we should look into it for R’s elbow? Thanks for the idea.

    I use 100% green lipped mussel in powder form added to food for arthritis mitigation in my dogs and for my cat, who has arthritis in one hip. He stopped limping when I started it. Laser is also an excellent addition.

    Kodi, Coco, and Lizzie (me too!) are leaping for joy! Nico……a rescued 10 year old wooly husky isn’t…..due to back problems. We’ve done the steroid thing which helps his back but the poor guy suffers from the side effects. Vet has now suggested laser and hearing the great results the Queen has had…..woo hoo!!!!!! Nico is next!. Can’t thank you enough!

    The Queens word is good enough for me. When the issue starts with my senior “Bear”, will certainly look into it.

    That’s great to hear. Our Maggie was born with hip dysplasia and now has arthritis, I will definitely be looking into this. Thanks for sharing!

    Mom sez: I talked to Ice’s “Dr. Trev” about using laser treatments on both Ice ‘n Ayla over a year ago, as they were both showing signs of arthritis (this was back before we lost our beloved Ayla to diabetes), and he assured me that that was next on his “wish list” for the Vet Clinic, as soon as he could afford it. So, we know it’s coming, at least. Good to know QNTE responds so well, hope the Iceman does, too.

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
