Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Did they perform any diagnostics before the laser treatments?

Have any pain medications been tried? Others like muscle relaxers?

What breed is he and how old?
