Recovery from paralysisJingo was a miracle dog who recovered from paralysis in 2014 and continues to thrive today. He was sent home from UC Davis after they decided he was not a candidate for surgery. Still unable to walk, his prognosis for recovery was guarded. He started having acupuncture treatments and after just a few sessions, he started walking again. Jingo continues to visit for acupuncture, massage, and exercise therapy sessions to help maintain his strength and mobility.
End of Life CareBunny started coming to see us after conventional medicine failed to provide her with improvement in her mobility. Her Mom was concerned her decline might mean the end was near. When she started coming to Heal, she could only take a few steps before collapsing on to her head or falling over because of hind end weakness. But after several patient weeks of acupuncture, food therapy, and herbal medicine, she was running again. Bunny lived another happy and mobile two years with an amazing quality of life before she faced some other serious medical issues. We miss her sweet little pug face and challenging wiggly acupuncture sessions.
