My time this week

My time for the past week and a half has been spent with taking the dog to the vet for laser treatments!

Bandit is a 12 1/2 year old golden retriever. We thought he has was having difficulties walking and wasn't like his old self. A visit to the vet revealed good and bad news. The good news - his hips are fine and there is no cancer. The bad news - bone spurs growing on his spine. These are very painful and can affect movement.

We opted to give him laser  treatments which

  Helps remove damaged tissue,
Releases endorphins for natural pain relief,
Lessens inflammation,
Stimulates protein development, and
Boosts cell metabolism.

So far it does seem to be helping! Although he is not always too sure about the goggles!!!

Yes, Bandit doesn't realize how dashing he looks in his gogglies. I sure hope he is feeling better. I know how they become members of our family. You are taking such good care of him...
