How is it performed?

Before initiating Local Gold Treatment, the pet has to be examined. This examination can be made by a local vet or at the Goldtreat Clinic. By clinical and radiographic examinations a diagnosis compatible with this form of treatment should me made.
The treatment itself is performed under general anaesthesia and in sterile aseptic conditions. The Berlock® implants are placed in the tissue through a special needle into precise locations surrounding the painful joint, where they will remain permanently. Following the treatment, there will be no surgical wound, removing the need for suture removal. The animal can return home as soon as it has recovered from the anaesthesia.
After the implant is finished, a radiograph is made, and a copy handed out to the pet owner.
