This sounds bad but it depends on which horse.

I have paid for 2 treatments beyond insur. coverage

4/21/2011 11:29:05 AM

Most people don't have insurance. I still like Acuscope therapy

I'd pay a moderate cost, but ONLY if this is a proven treatment.

4/20/2011 11:18:35 PM

if more than one treatment is needed any cost more than $60 per would be outside my reach

4/20/2011 1:27:43 PM

None

I use shockwave frequently especially for soreness before an actual injury happens.

4/20/2011 12:11:08 AM

I would not choose this treatment.

4/19/2011 9:21:18 PM

I found the average to be $250 per treatment by vets qualified to administer this type of treatement

4/19/2011 8:55:11 PM

wouldnt spend more than 1K total

4/19/2011 8:04:11 PM

have in the past and will do again, if recommended

4/19/2011 6:28:15 PM

I wouldn't pay anything I don't really think that its necessay!

4/19/2011 5:37:36 PM

moot point. Studies are scewed to exclude all but the most elementary problem thus getting approval

4/19/2011 2:26:51 PM

I would choose the conservative amount first, would want to see proof of effectiveness for my horse
