Diane Dahltorp on Daisy and Duchess’s laser treatments:

“Laser treatments have done wonders for my two 12 year old shelties. Daisy was unable to jump up on the couch and chairs and began dragging her hind legs. Dr. Livingston took x-rays and suggested a series of 6 laser treatments. After the 1st treatment, I saw improvement. After the 6th treatment, Daisy showed no signs of limping and was back to her active self. Her sister, Duchass, had trouble getting up after lying down, limped upon standing up, and didn’t want to walk as far as we used to. Dr. Livingston took x-rays and identified a hip problem and again suggested the 6 laser treatments. I quickly agreed after seeing how much it helped Daisy. Duchess’s progress was slower but there was noticeable improvement after the 6th treatment. We continued periodic treatments as a preventative measure. The laser treatments are painless and quick, taking less than 15 minutes for my dogs’ problems. I highly recommend the K-Laser treatments.”
