I hope you find Karlene before you’re at the end of your rope so you and your pet don’t have the struggle like we did. Our beloved German Shepard, Pilot, was ill for almost a year before we took him to Animas Animals for alternative care. At 4 years of age, he was weak in the hind end and struggled to get up. We visited local veterinarians and were referred to specialists where blood values, x-rays, and MRI results were inconclusive. $8000 later, Pilot was taking numerous pain medications and anti fungal drugs. He became increasingly depressed and his movement had not improved. He screamed in pain when he opened his mouth. After the first visit with Karlene, Pilot had 20% improvement in mobility and depression. She treated Pilot with electroacupuncture (that he absolutely loves). We gradually eliminated the drugs and used Chinese herbal formulas instead. His depression was gone. 36 hours after I started giving a third Chinese herbal, the tide changed! He was up and moving around!!! Pilot had been in pain for almost a year and after 6 weeks under Karlene’s care he was a changed dog. Pilot looks forward to our visits, he can hardly contain his excitement in the car when we get to her office, and when she puts the needles in, he lays down and takes a peaceful nap that makes me so jealous!
