About 80 percent of animals show marked improvement post treatment. There are no negative side effects as one might experience with surgery or drug therapy.

Once I had a weanling ship in with an enormous ulcerated area on the lateral aspect of each hock that were non healing lesions. The sores had been treated topically and with various laser therapies to no avail. I used shockwave therapy and the margins started to close in almost immediately. They eventually healed and the filly went on to win as a two year old.
