The following is a partial transcript of the video.
Leslie Gallagher McMahon, CCMT, CCRT: I feel like an awful lot of veterinary practices have purchased a laser and nobody in their practice knows how to use it. And that's always super concerning to me because to understand how to use a laser is a lot more than a 15 minute instruction by the company that sold you the laser. We learn about it in rehab school, but even what we are taught in rehab school isn't enough. And I get notes from other clinics that they're doing laser and that it maybe wasn't effective. And I feel really strongly that people need to take courses in how to use a laser and there's a couple of really good ones out there that I'll talk about.
I want people to be able to educate their clients that they don't have to euthanize their dog when the dog goes down. That's probably my biggest one. Because I also hear that a lot. I want technicians and veterinarians to be able to say to their clients, there's another option here. We may not be able to help your dog but I know somebody who can.
