I allowed the vet to do this multiple times after a neuter, the incision healed very nicely within a week, and I noticed that he never tried going for the incision after the second session, so I am sure it does something good.

Sessions were only $15 for 90 seconds a piece.

Jax showed significant improvement for her knee in the 6 visits. And my friend's lab with ED showed significant improvement.

There are no Con's. That's the great part. Non invasive, no side affects, costs the same as pain pills and anti inflammatories after the "loading" treatments.

I have been using this therapy on my working German Shepherds for years. Any type of wound to speed healing, as well as muscle pulls. One of them just had a bad otitis and we lasered 2 times before we started putting in meds and he was much more comfortable and didnt resist the meds. My vet has a class IV and I have them use it anytime they can. Even on the cats. There are therapy lasers that are class 3B but the treatment time to get the same response is much longer. My vet upgraded to the IV and it cut treatment time in half.

Rafi messed up his neck and back so badly that he could barely walk. I took him to the chiropractor and he did laser therapy and Rafi walked out of there a new dog!

However, the success of the therapy has a lot to with the practitioner. I would go to a rehab vet or a chiropractor to have it done and not a regular vet's office, unless they have a lot of training and experience using the modality.
