On geriatric care…

Amber is a Lhasa Apso who is 14 ½ years old now, but you would never know it, except that she can’t jump over the 36″ doggie gate now as she used to do.  She runs and plays with her toys and is remarkably happy and without any obvious aches and pains that would plague a person of her relative age.  Her blood work and other tests confirm her good health—even her heart is working well, unusual for a dog her age (even if she doesn’t think she’s [...]

On Malignant Cancer…

Dear Dr. Moorehead, Our dog Bella is now 11 years old.  A few months ago we didn’t think she would see another month. Bella had a malignant melanoma in her mouth.  With surgery and medication [nutrition] Bella has rebounded to her old self.  Thanks to Dr. Moorehead Bella is cancer free and healthy.  Lots of care and determination alone with love and tenderness by Dr. Moorehead and his wonderful staff have made a difference.  A big difference! It’s so nice to see Bella chasing the occasional squirrel or [...]

On liver challenges

I cannot express how grateful I am that I found Dr. Moorehead and his staff. My cat Butters was diagnosed with a failing liver by 2 different veterinarians. In essence they both told me that the best option I had was to take Butters to a specialist or Athens Vet school and have a feeding tube inserted and force feed my cat without a guarantee for his survival. A friend said it was too bad there were no holistic vets to consult to get another opinion as opposed [...]

On Leg Weakness…

To Everyone at Main Street Veterinarians, I’m pleased to inform you that Daisy recovery is going very well and my wife and I are very thankful that we had found your clinic. On August 1st, 2008 my wife and I began noticing that our dog Daisy who’s only 4 years of age was not being as playful as she is normally. Then on August 4th, we had both noticed that Daisy was losing her ability to stand on both her hind legs. Panicking that she may have digested [...]

On skin, gastrointestinal issues and heartworm treatment

Dear Dr. Moorehead, We would like to thank Dr. Morehead for the caring and attention he gives to our pet dog, Stuart, a 7 year old Great Dane/Great Pyrenees mix. We rescued Stuart about 5 years ago.  Within the first year we learned he had heartworms.  Dr. Moorehead treated his condition with Nutrition Response Testing and Stuart totally recovered. Since that time, Stuart has suffered from two severe conditions that Dr. Morehead successfully diagnosed and treated with Nutrition Response testing. Without the help of Dr. Moorehead and his [...]

On Chronic Itchy Feet and Skin

After jokingly saying to my Naturopath that I wished she could treat my dog, she referred me to Dr. Moorehead at MainStreet Veterinarians stating that he basically does the same work she does, only with animals. I was so excited to hear this! Our 7 ½-year-old black Labrador, Gracie, has had a history of obsessive paw licking and chewing that seemed to stem from both environmental issues as well as anxiety, and she had a couch-potato personality. Even though she has been on a clean, raw diet since [...]

On skin allergies and digestion

My now 14 month old Goldendoodle, Copper, had frequent unexplained digestive issues as a puppy. At times his stools would be loose with occasional diarrhea. I switched him to grain free kibble but his bowel issues continued. Then following his heart worm medication at 8 months, he suffered from watery stools for a week. To add to that, he developed a flea problem following being boarded during our vacation and ended up with inflamed skin. He would scratch and bite his skin all day, making himself and the [...]

On longevity and a higher quality of life…

Dear Dr. Moorehead: Thank you very much for caring for my aging friend, Mocha. I brought her to your office because she couldn’t lift her tail, was in pain and scared of everything since the house was hit by a tornado last March. You suggested trying an alternative therapy program using nutritional supplements

On Skin Allergies…

When Dr. Moorehead first did the “arm thing” (NRT) to diagnose medical problems, my initial thought was, “It may be time to look for another vet.” Well, two puppies, many supplements, and years later, I am a believer. My latest success story involves KaCe, my mixed terrier who looks just like Benji. She had been scratching incessantly and, literally, chewing the area near her tail. Dr. Moorehead indicated that 9 out of 10 times the cause for this behavior was fleas. I knew she was the 1 out [...]

On HGE (Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis)

In November 2015 Dixie, one of our pets, developed HGE and was so very sick.  I’d never heard of HGE and shortly thereafter learned that many dogs do not survive it.   It comes on so quickly I suspect some pass away before even being diagnosed.  If your furry child begins vomiting with diarrhea pay close attention.  If the frequency increases over a 7-10 hour period, get to your Vet immediately.  With HGE, administering IV fluids is critical to the survival of your pet. This purpose of this communication [...]

On venomous insect bites…

Dear Dr. Moorehead and Staff: I want to thank you for your outstanding care for my black lab mix, Ellie. Eleven months ago, when I brought Ellie into your office for an infected anal gland, I had no idea that we were about to embark on such a long, hard journey to recovery. Within a couple of days from that visit, her other anal gland became infected, her jaw in the left side of her head started swelling on top, and the flesh on top of her head [...]

On skin allergies

My blue (gray) Pit Bull, Minnie, began seeing Dr. Moorehead over a year ago. Minnie was only a few months out of the shelter and began developing pretty severe “hot spots” on her neck. Not long after, she started to get strange bumps all over her body. The bumps were sometimes hard and pink; others were filled with white fluid. Sometimes they would break open and bleed, and other times they’d just disappear after a few weeks. She would also go through periods of extreme shedding (she has [...]

On Cushing’s disease

Over a year and a half ago our dog, Simon, a 70 lb Yellow Lab mix, was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease. When the vet gave us the prognosis of Simon’s living 6 more months and needing chemotherapy (which was supposed to be painful), we were at a loss. We did not want to put Simon, who was 13 at the time, through that pain, especially when the chemo would only add 2-4 additional months to his life. It was then that we decided to see what holistic options [...]

On Epilepsy…

Dear Dr. Moorehead and MainStreet Veterinarians of Stone Mountain’s friends; This letter is a testimonial to your skills in treating our dog Sukha who was having seizures. You speculated that Sukha’s thyroid was under active and that a combination of natural medicines and conventional medication might be beneficial. I was skeptical. Epilepsy was in this dog’s history. However, I trusted your judgment and you were right. First we had several months of treatment with many natural medicines and one standard medication. Slowly Sukha’s thyroid function improved. He has [...]

Nutrition Response Testing

Dr. Moorehead is truly a gifted veterinarian. He is extremely knowledgeable about holistic as well as allopathic solutions for animals. I am so very appreciative and thankful for his expert care regarding my three felines and one canine. My testimony is about Brandy, my canine whom I rescued two years ago. I adopted Brandy, a 6 year old part Chow and part Lab rescue dog who was about to be euthanized. With her previous owner, Brandy had never had her shots nor had she been spayed. I later [...]

On feline heartworm disease and aortic tromboembolism

One morning I woke up to find that Little Mama, the sweet stray cat I’d recently taken in, wasn’t dashing towards the food bowl with my other cat the second I emerged from the bathroom. Mystified, I saw her lying on the kitchen floor, looking wan and disinterested. I called out to her, but, when she eventually tried to move, her back legs wouldn’t support her and she’d just plop down again onto the tile. I was concerned, thinking she may have injured her legs jumping or running [...]

On Liver Disease…

Wilbur is my lovable, goofy, seven year old Basset hound.  When he leaned up against me one morning, and I noticed his stomach was yellowish, I immediately took him to the vet.  They ran some blood tests on him and I was told he had very serious liver infection.  Several of his enzymes levels were extremely elevated.  I was shocked, as he had exhibited no signs of being sick.  A liver biopsy was suggested to determine the cause and a way to “save” him. Dr, Moorehead did his [...]

On cat with AIDS…

Dear Dr. Moorehead and staff, Thank you all so much for your care and concern during Blackjack’s recent illness. When we took Blackjack to your office a month ago he was an extremely sick cat. He was severely dehydrated and had not eaten in days. He was throwing up constantly and totally listless. He finally positioned himself in a hole under the house and would not come out no matter what we tried. His poor little sad eyes said it all. His condition was so dire that we [...]

On Cushing’s Disease…

MainStreet Veterinarians [Dr. Moorehead] saves another life… Amelia is a 12-year old Shih Tzu who thinks she is a big dog and still a teenager. A year ago she had an elevated liver enzyme level (alkaline phosphates) that her (previous) vet said was something we’d have to keep an eye on. Six months later, it had risen to over 4,000, where 200 or under is normal. Her cortisol level was also elevated about 10 times the normal level. She looked sad, unhappy, and uncomfortable. I was told that [...]

On Environmental Allergies…

I took my dog Sophie to main street because she was having ulcers on her front pads. My vet did not know what it was and pretty much sent us on our way.Dr. Moorehead was our hero. He did some homeopathic (NRT) testing on her and it ended up she was allergic to my cleaning products, some food, sugar, and certain treats. Gave me some medication (nutrition) to detox her and stop itching and in 2 weeks she was heeled. I couldn’t believe it. Since then she still [...]
