Thanks to Rhonda Chase for an update on Audry
"Audrey is a 14 year old jack russell. She is a rescue from a puppy farm and I adore her. She has been developing a hacking cough that worsened this last year. After a couple of different prognosis from different vets and couple of months on western meds, she was only getting worse. I finally decided I would look for some herbs on line and found PawHealer. While I do not expect that she will be cured, she is feeling much better and except late night and early morning, her coughing is much improved! Thanks PawHealer"
Rhonda contacted us via our Yin Yang Survey...and here is how she described the chief compliant:

There is not a day that doesn't go by that I don't think about all the various patterns of coughing that I see each and every day from hundreds of people when describing their dog's cough.. When I read her pattern description...there are many thoughts that go through my mind....
Adoption and rescue...i think of the wounded heart spirit...when heart qi is weak, the heart will not be nourished...hacking cough is dryness...dryness can be a result of blood not flowing properly...then I read "collapsed trachea"
That is a western diagnosis, however from my perspective it represents lung heat and sticky phlegm...
Thankfully, in most instances the Lung Qi Support for Phlegm Heat seems to help the majority of coughing dogs. However, that is for the more excess cough. To help with the enduring cough that Rhonda describes, we will need to do a formula for Heart Yang vacuity...

In Memory of Gator
"Oh Holly. I miss him so much. My balance is off. He had the love and positive effect on me. My yin-yang. I feel empty and sad. Thank you for thinking of me".
They say that death is actually the separation of yin and yang...
I think Michele is experiencing that sensation of separateness because of the unexpected passing of her beloved Gator.
Yin and Yang are mutually transforming, one cannot exist without the other.
While Michele will go on with her life, she hold a spot in her heart, which is a special space where Gator's spirit lives on, and that will be forever.
Good bye Sweet Gator....

Thanks for Monda for sharing Limo's Dissolve experience.
"Have been using Dissolve for five months. Limo has much more energy and can now jump upon the couch again. The little lumps are gone. The big one has moved down and back. Do give this product a try as we have seen good things. We recommend capsules - they are easier."
Notice she kept Limo on the Dissolve for a long period of time. I have many people who want to use one bottle and expect a magic bullet. Its not. There is work that goes with ridding a dog of lipomas. Diet is the first requirement. If your dog is overweight, get those pounds off. Lipomas are an excess yin substance. The body is not transforming all the food, thus the accumulation of phlegm/damp nodules known as Lipomas.
Unfortunately not every dog will respond to the lipoma aspect of the formula. However there are many side benefits. We invigorate the blood, which in most instances will enhance the dog's mobility. Those lumps and bumps obstruct the channels. So the herbs are helping move qi and blood which is always a good thing.

Coben my 8 year old Great Dane was urinating blood and the vet wanted to do a x-ray, possibly surgery for bladder stones. I contacted Paw Healer right away and they came up with the combination for correcting his crystals in the urine. In about 2 to 3 months Coben was free from the heat and pain and no longer urinating blood. Thank you for all your help! I've also tried some other herbs for Coben from Paw Healer and he does well with all!
Thanks for Pepper sharing Corben's story. Corben has a tendency towards damp-heat. It affects his bladder and ears..and Pepper stays on top of that problem by using herbs to clear heat.
Corben used Urinary Free the Flow for Blood/Stasis Heat....and happily he is a happy peeing dog!!!

Betty Spaghetti's Story
Herbs for a Pug's Eyes!
"We adopted Betty Spaghetti, an elderly pug, from a shelter in October of 2012. She'd obviously not been well cared for and among other physical problems her eyes were in bad shape. She had dry eye (KCS) which had been left untreated. She was almost blind with clouding in both eyes and severe scarring on one. I began giving her the Round Corneal Nebula (herbal formula) right away along with daily moisturizing drops. I think that Betty's vision has actually improved slightly. The miracle is that her vision didn't continue to worsen. I'm very grateful to Paw Healer for that. Betty lives the good life now."
Thanks to Karin for her kind words and her story about Betty and how she is working to perserve Betty's eyesight. I made a link so anybody interested can go look at the formulas. We have many different blends, they are not all on the website...
If your interested in a custom blend for your dog...e mail firstname.lastname@example.org or go to PawHealer.com and check out all of our herbal formulations made especially for the special dog.

Thanks to Cindy B for sharing Niki's picture and story of ccollapsedtrachea, here it is:
Nikki, my American Eskimo was diagnosed with Tracheal Collapse last year. I found Paw Healer on the computer, and ordered the product. Since using this my baby now sleeps all night without coughing, panting, jumping on and off the bed, and having to get water. We all sleep better now.
Pawhealer.com has been working with dogs diagnosed with a collasped trachea for many years now. From a TCM perspective this is a disease of phlegm and the heat which binds to that turbidity.
I don't think of a "collaspsed trachea"..when i design herbal formulas for dogs that chronically cough, i think about how to get rid of the damp/phlegm. In most instances it will be a formula to clear phlegm-heat in the lungs. However there are many many different patterns that can be assigned to dogs that have been diagnosed with a collapsed trachea.
Like I always tell people. There are no magic bullets..good food, good herbs, exercise, weight control and a great vet..create a synergistic effect. Its hard work, but worth it.
Lung Qi Support for Phlegm-Heat.

Thanks to Monica M for telling her story about Butkus...we received back a note from her that the tests for heartworm came back negative...
My mama gave me this combination of herbs and I am feeling much better. Not coughing and gagging nearly as much as before. She mixed with my food and I liked it. Thank you for making these herbs available to dogs and cats. Thanx, Butkus
