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 started slowly decaying. Despite your efforts, her response to steroids, antibiotics and other medications was not very promising. My subsequent trip to the UGA Veterinary Hospital was not very positive either. Without saying it, they basically told me to have her euthanized. Thankfully, upon hearing this, you suggested trying an alternative therapy program using nutritional supplements [NRT].
Ellie’s response to the nutritional therapy over the next several months was amazing. The swelling in her jaw went down, her energy level increased, her fevers subsided and the skin on top of her gradually grew back along with a little bit of hair (I never knew I would be so happy to have a bold headed dog!). I am convinced that Ellie would no longer be with us had you not suggested the alternative therapy to treat her. Thank you for not giving up on her.
