Dear Dr. Moorehead,
When our 11 year old German Sheppard howled in pain every rime he moved, or every time we slightly touched him, I thought for sure he had ruptured a disc in his back. You could see the pain in his eyes. He was very weak, barely able to support his own weight and would let out the most blood curdling screams I’ve ever heard. We rushed him to see Dr. Moorehead. We were surprised when Dr. Moorehead said it wasn’t his back. Instead, he prescribed a number of nutritional supplements and sent us back home. At first I think both my husband and I thought, you’ve got to be kidding me. Our baby is really sick. I don’t think nutrients are going to fix it. Still, Dr. Moorehead has always been our Vet, and even though we have never had to deal with anything too serious, we wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt.
We follow up with Dr. Moorehead the following week, but there has been no change. In fact, 8 VER LONG weeks passed and still no real improvement. At times it even seemed to get worse, or at the very least, we would switch one set of problems for another. We spent so much time at the Dr.’s office we began to refer to our appointments as Tuesday’s with Moorehead!
It’s safe to say by this time we were exhausted, very frustrated and beginning to no longer believe he could heal. We began to think we might have to put our Sheppard down, and we were not even ready to consider that. Dr. Moorehead assured us that every day our baby was getting stronger and soon we would see a difference.
Despite our doubts, we continued to follow the nutritional program prescribed. I guess another 3 weeks passed, when one morning I was awakened by something I had not experienced in a very long timeÂ…My beautiful German Sheppard waking me up with a kiss. Not only had he gotten with no yelling, but he was able to lift his head up to the bed to say good morning for the very first time in 3 months. My husband put it best when he said, “it was like a light switch being turned on and suddenly we had our dog back.”
Complete and total healing came back after that and he is like a new dog. He runs and plays, and barks like he is half his age. The light, the joy, and the sparkle in his eyes is back. We wouldn’t have believe it if we hadn’t lived through the experience ourselves. We have become true believers in the life-saving benefits of NRT, and we couldn’t be more grateful to Dr. Moorehead and his staff for their special knowledge, their persistence, and loving care of our animal companions.
Warm regards, C and B
