Leslie Gallagher McMahon, CCMT, CCRT: So we use laser on probably most of our clients. I think it's the rare dog—I mean just the dogs with cancer that we don't laser, but we mostly use it for pain relief. And in any of the post-op dogs, we use it for tissue healing. You can also use it for otitis media, you can use your ear infections, you can use it for skin infections. But that tends not to be our focus here. What our number one concern of our clients here is pain management. So rehab is laser is always going to be addressing the pain that these dogs are either the geriatrics that have severe osteoarthritis or the dogs recovering from surgery that have an awful lot of pain of post-op pain. So laser has been just miraculous in healing for us to get these dogs better. It's really been a game-changer.
