In 2008 our 8 year old whippet, Zoe, woke up yelping and was obviously in tremendous pain. After several minutes she stopped yelping but was clearly still in an extremely distressed state. When there appeared to be no improvement after 30 minutes we called the vet. The vet asked numerous questions and decided we should bring her in to see him. He checked her over and found nothing obvious. She was given a needle and stayed under observation for several hours.
The next day ‘she still wasn’t talking to the vet’ so he decided to X-ray her neck and spine and to do some blood tests. Zoe was given Amoxyclav and Rimadyl. No abnormalities were detected in the X-rays or blood tests and it was found that her major organs were functioning as normal.
Later that week Zoe developed a limp which appeared to come from her right shoulder. An X-ray of shoulder and her elbow again showed nothing abnormal.
That weekend Zoe was off her food and both days she just kept moving to shaded areas to lie down. During this period she also yelped occasionally, as if she had hurt herself. We had no idea what to do next until someone mentioned a “” who “did a lot of work with animals”.
We tracked down and in communication with him via email he said the problem would without a doubt be a pinched nerve. The following weekend we took Zoe to see him. Over a period of 3 days he did three treatments. Zoe appeared much improved at the end of her treatment and continued to improve until she was back to normal and has enjoyed perfect health since then.
also gave us lots of helpful information as especially correct sizes for doggy doors. I’m not sure what the outcome would have been for Zoe had we not been fortunate enough to hear of . This is no reflection on the vet, he did everything he knew of to help her but she needed ‘s expertise to make her right and he did that with his amazing technique, without X-rays and medication. We will be eternally grateful to him for his help which has ensured Zoe enjoys a high quality of life.
