DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR – CRYING IN PAIN
Prior Diagnosis – Cortisone injections, vet did not know what was wrong
We have a 16 year old puss called Gemma (or Gemmy!) who has had a rough life before we finally enticed her into our home over a number of months. She had been living on the street in a gutter, suffering the elements of winter and summer and not cared for by her previous owners.
She was 8 when I took her in and now she is a sprightly 16 year old with the energy of a kitten (when she is awake that is). She does not trust humans much, but still she brings us a lot of joy, even with her attitude and aloofness.
The last 18 months or so, she would start ‘crying’ as if in pain, whether it is arthritis or nerve problems. I went to a number of traditional Vets who really did not know what was wrong, and basically suggested Cortisone. In my heart I did not want to put her through that, as I did not want her to experience the side effects.
I had heard of Doc Jamieson a number of years ago, and thought I would give him a go. I ‘googled’ him and made contact. Doc came as soon as he could and drove all the way from Gympie and we are at Ferny Grove! His genuine concern for animals is so apparent, I knew that she was in good hands, when he worked on her. Gemmy has had a number of chiropractic treatments done on her by Doc, and even though she doesn’t relish the ‘session’ she always seems to be feeling much better.
I have no doubt that what Doc does assists her old bones and nerves, She is a very contented cat now and is again able to skit up and down the stairs, through the lounge and around the rumpus room, with so much energy thanks to Doc.
Thanks so much Doc for your love and commitment to our lovely animals of the world. Keep up the good work.
