Cold laser treatments?

south central, WI(Zone 5a)

Toy poodle Moka (the fullback of the football toy poodle league) is having back issues again. We had her on Metacam with some progress..but today, being day 2 without..tail down, which is one of her signals that things are hurting a bit. She is back on her Dasaquin (sp?) which helps on a sustained level..but .....The vet suggested series of 4 shots (don't remem the name) or cold laser treatment.
Would like to know if anyone has had this done for a dog..with lower back issues......doubt that vet will want her on another run of Metacam, so it's probably choice of shots or laser.
Could use any feedback.

If the shots are Adequin, it worked very well for my cat. After a loading dose of close together shots, I give her a shot every week and it helps her arthritis pain so much. For a cat the shot is just under the skin and I do it when she is eating and it doesn't phase her.

Thanks, will check with the vet Monday when we take Pippin in to have her stitches out. I give Pippin insulin, so if Adequin is the med, I can do under skin for Moka.
Her back still is giving her problems and I don't know if Metacam would be used as a daily med.
I am glad that your kitty is doing well on the med. Will keep posted.

Got the OK to keep Metacam for use PRN for Moka..we are all happy with that. Pippin thrilled to have her Victorian collar off!!! and stitches out.
