Midnight's Laser Therapy

Since Midnight's diagnosis of athritis in his back and tail, we have decided to take Dr. Ostrich's recommendation to put him on Laser Therapy as an alternative to pain medication and/or periodic shots.

Yesterday morning was Midight's first Laser Therapy session with his technician, Danielle. She allowed us to be in the room with him while she treated him and she explained to us all about Laser Therapy, what is is, what it actually does, and the beneftit of this kind of treatment. She also told us that they have worked on hundreds of dogs so far but Midnight is their very first cat to be treated there. 

All of us, Midnight included, had to wear safety googles to protect our eyes. The entire session lasted only about 10 minutes and our baby was an absolute trooper as usual. Danielle said it feels like a warm message and took a pic of him afterwards. She told us she was going to hang it up in the office lobby for all to see. She even printed off a color copy for us to take home ...

Eagle's Peak Therapist Danielle works on Midnight's arthritic back using Laser Therapy techniques.

So far, Midnight is responding to the therapy fairly well ... only 5 more to go! 


  1. Kim, mom and I loved this post! Midnight is such a sweetheart! We really hope this all works out for him ;o) He looks so cute in his googles ;o) Mom was wondering, do they have this for people?? She would love to do it for her athritis! Big Hugs ;o)

    1. Stacy, as a matter of fact, the Laser Therapy treatments were used for people first, but they also found that it works on animals as well! It is actually used for a number of ailments including inflamation, joint and spine problems. :)

  2. I have to tell my mom! We should have this in Canada! Thanks Kim ;o)
