Our cocker spaniel mix Murphy, who we found as a stray almost 12 years ago, developed a severe cough in late 2017. We took him to a traditional vet who examined him, then took a few x-rays. He had a large mass in the lower lobe of his right lung. The vet gave us a few choices as to what to do with him. First choice was for surgery to remove the mass, second was to biopsy the mass. Both of these choices gave him a less than 50% chance of survival, and a probable life span of approximately 6 months. Her last suggestion was to visit Dr. Karlene Stange.
After our first visit, Murphy was already doing better! Dr. Karlene performed an acupuncture treatment and prescribed a combination of Chinese herbs. Since our first appointment, Murphy has steadily improved, and in fact, has the energy and enthusiasm he had years ago! Thank you Dr. Karlene for your knowledge, compassion, and skill with our sweet Murphy!
