Natural pain remedies assist active dog.
Molly is a large mix breed dog who came to me at the ripe old age of 13. Being an extremely athletic girl, several years ago she severely pulled, and tore, most of her tendons in both back legs on separate occasions.
Molly received excellent treatment and care from our vets and specialists, and she recovered well. But as she got older, she began to show increasing signs of disability and pain in those back legs. In addition, her back paws were contracting again, and clenching into a ball- she was almost walking on her toes. We had to be constantly vigilant, because in an alarmingly short time, this would sometimes cause her claws to rub and scrape against her pads and between her toes, until the flesh was raw.
As a result of all this, she was taking the bulk of her weight onto her front legs. This, in turn, resulted in arthritis in her front elbows and other joints, plus soreness and stiffness in her neck and shoulders.
She became despondent, and appeared depressed. Everything was a painful effort. Mona Vale Vets came to the rescue again, and “Molly’s Team” was put into action. Not only did our girl benefit from comprehensive veterinary care from the surgery, but also Chiropractic and Myofunctional Therapy (Dr Alison Halloway, and vet nurse , Bec Harvey, respectively), but they recommended Patty Walcott of “Healthy Pets Naturally”.
Patty and our vets work well together, and their respective treatments are very complimentary.
Patty looked at Molly holistically, and addressed her issues on every level, externally and internally, from changing her diet to be more natural, through to Transfer Factor for the immune system, supplements for her joints, to photonic therapy sessions, and more – and it is all natural.
Thanks to “Molly’s Team”, we now have our girl back – yes, still older, but interested in life again, keen to go to the park, always up for a (gentle) ball game, and her spirits are high.
Patty’s concern (and indeed the Team’s concern) for Molly continues to be exemplary, frequently calling to check on her progress and well-being, and forever exploring and researching the latest treatments from around the world.
We are most fortunate, and deeply grateful to have such a gifted and caring practitioner in our midst.
