    How's sweet Sarah doing?

    Grandma and I were discussing this situation on Saturday - I think it was - and she wanted to know exactly what they were doing. Lasers are amazing things. Grandma has a long history working in healthcare - but not veterinary care. She's wondering what happens during these treatments...how long does it take? Does it hurt? What exactly are they doing in there? Do they see the break and then laser it with an xray or how? There's more questions from her - but I'll stop now.

    Hang in there my Gastronomical Goddess! Bea and Bo send big slobbery smooches to Sarah.

    Laser therapy is very invasive... it is like a deep tissue/muscle massage just done with a wand that has a red light on the end. Banks has been going for about 6/7 months and it has done wonders for her movement. She has infused discs in her spine and HD... her treatments last for about an hour .. her spine, lower back, and each hip all are focused on with the laser. She started out going a few times a week, which worked up to once a month or as we see she needs more. Not too expensive, but well worth the money to see her run and play.

    well sarahs treatments are not as intense as banks are. she only gets 10 minutes at a time. honestly i dont know what they are doing to her as i havent had a chance to ask. she goes back n in 10 minutes they bring her out then she comes home and sleeps alot. honestly im trying to get her yeast and food issues under control at the same time so im sure at some point i will have more to say about what it being done to her.

    @2BullyMama - ouch. Sounds like it hurts. Do you have to carry her in there? It also sounds like it works wonders. When Mable was going for her "tummy drainings" she was always such a good sport about it. She knew what was coming and she cheerfully walked into the vet and off with the nurse every time.

    @cowsmom - I need to talk to you about that yeast. I think I have a "situation" in Bea's tail pocket....
    Glad it's helping Sarah. The sleeping is probably from all the "activity" that she's not used to when she visits the vet.

    I never understand how people can just ignore when their pets are in pain. But thank goodness Sarah has you now and that is wonderful she is doing better with the laser treatments. Hugs to you and Sarah!

    No, no pain at all. I meant to type NON-invasive.... it is like a massage. Banks is great about it... she LOVES everyone at the vet and she just sits/lays there while they do what they need to
