I brought Scooter to see Dr. Heather a few months ago. Scooter’s rear legs were getting weaker and more painful for him because of knee issues. He is only three years old, so he was probably born with bad joint problems. Dr. Heather suggested a series of Laser treatments after trying conventional acupuncture. Scooter would not tolerate the needles, it was hard to get him to hold still long enough, as well, he’d pull the needles out first chance he got. That’s when Dr. Heather started Laser treatment in place of needles for acupuncture. Scooter was okay with that treatment, so we started a series of this type of therapy. Also he was started on a herb mixture to help with his pain.
After a couple of weeks, Scooter was starting to visibly look less weak in his rear legs, less limping, and a bit more active. We started to reduce the frequency of the treatments, and he’s maintained his improvements. I believe the strength in his legs is getting better. He’s more stable on slippery surfaces.
I believe this treatment was a good choice for Scooter. We’ll work towards a once a month maintenance. Scooter seems to of reacted well to this therapy. Thank you, Dr. Heather!
