Peanut is an 8 year old Beagle. She was keeping her left rear leg drawn up and she was in a lot of pain. Her tail was tucked tightly between her legs. I took her to my regular vet who put Peanut on pain meds and referred her to a “specialist”.
The specialist advised me that Peanut probably had cancer of the sciatic nerve in that leg. The two courses of treatment were: 1) keep her on pain meds until she could not function any longer and then put her down, or, 2) amputate the leg.
A friend of mine had taken her elderly dog, Alf, to Main Street Veterinarians of Stone Mountain and her dog had wonderful results and lived a happy life for quite some time. So I took Peanut to see Dr. Moorehead at MainStreet Veterinarians.
I have to admit I was skeptical about the Nutritional Response testing of Peanut’s health, but the diagnosis made sense to me. Peanut went on Dr. Moorehead’s nutritional program. Within a week, I saw some improvement.
After two weeks she was keeping her rear leg on the ground and she had little pain. After three weeks, she was a happier dog, and her tail was coming out from its tucked position. She was able to climb stairs (though slowly) and I was even seeing her tail wag.
We began reducing her pain meds as Peanut was doing very well. After four weeks she was able to take long walks again, and the tail was straight out and wagging. I observed something special. Usually Peanut is scratching at the door of the vet’s treatment room to get out.
Here, she lies calmly on the floor. Evidently Peanut is very happy at MainStreet Veterinarians, and is comfortable with Dr. Moorehead and all the staff.
Many Thanks, SC.
