Hey Dr. Downing,

We are wondering what you think of alternative pain management modalities, such as cold laser, acupuncture, Assisi loop, stem cell injections, etc. We tried all of these and found that none of them seemed to work for our dogs, who were all experiencing chronic pain due, in large part, to arthritis.

I wonder if these modalities work better with acute pain vs the kind of chronic pain that can result from being a long-term tripawd?

thank you!

Awesome, We are so glad.  Barley’s left hind leg was amputated 14 days ago, we’ve been leash walking in yard for potty breaks. She’s able to relieve herself now with minimal leash help.  She’s off the gabapentin 300mg BID, and on Carprofen 75 mg BID. She’s an 11 YO happy 75# girl. She is doing well, eating well. Chemo started yesterday. So far no V/D. She’s perky and circles a little before she settles, but seems comfortable.  What is fair for getting her out if she is ready. We drove her to park today and let her out for 10 min as that made her happy.

Oh no! I’m so sorry. We did ask your question though, so when the webinar is posted live you will get to hear her response. We apologize for the technical glitch!
