"Sassy" - I am so happy that we didn't wait to do the laser treatments for Sassy. I was hesitant at first because it is a new treatment, you're not sure you can justify spending the money. Sassy is 15 and is like a puppy again after 4 sessions. She has not had Rimadyl (pain medication) for a week and is not grumpy with the other dogs!
