The Good Doctor, veterinarian to our dogs, horses, and cattle has acquired a Class 4 Therapy Laser. Today, Craig, from Companion Therapy Laser, arrived to train The Good Doctor and his staff. In need of dogs with challenging conditions that the laser may help heal, I had volunteered Lucas.
Protective goggles and glasses had to be worn in case of inadvertent direct eye contact with the laser. Lucas became his patient self, tolerant of most of our actions, though a squeaky yap from the back kennels would upset him and his session.
His paw was treated like a lick granuloma, even though it’s not caused by Lucas licking at it.
We then then gave his nerve damaged shoulder a treatment.
Honestly, there’s not an area of his body that probably wouldn’t be helped with the therapy laser. His paw with its open sore, the nerve damaged left leg, the right leg that takes the load and stress, both hind legs that wobble from his rebuilt pelvis.
