Meet Sandy....Never Too Late!

Dr. Pink Pinkerton, herbalist extraordiniare is please to introduce the beautiful Sandy and her friend. Sandy is a very old dog that has been on medicine for seizures for many many years.

Dr. Pink thinks it great that Dana (her person) after all these many years is trying to have her live the rest of her 17 years free of drugs.

Dr. Pink would like to post this wonderful news about Sandy and her seizures!

R Sandy's progress!

Hi Holly!

Almost a wk has passed without Phenobarbital and Sandy is hanging tough. She has occaisional head shakes just like she did while she was on that drug, but she's maintaining well and I believe the seizures have reduced some! She has not had any of the full-body or frontal body tremors since her switch to Calm & here's hoping!

Another benefit seems to be that she's regaining night time control of her bladder, at least thus far, and I can tell you that is huge for her and for me, a 51 yr old single parent of an 18 yr. old Westie girl. I have a neuro disorder and the better off she is, the better we all three do with our daily care routines. Her little sister Lucie is happier too since Sandy is now more alert and willing to take part in play time!

Best of luck to you and your pursuits!

Dana (Mom of the oldest Westie I know!)

Gussie's Fatty Lump Story.....

Dr. Pink Pinkerton and Nurse Daisy are always please when we receive updates from our customers.

This is a very interesting story, because no matter what the outcome of the purchase of our Dissolve formula, there is always a positive comment and result.

Gussie's lump was actually a little more advanced....they're waiting for the lab results. But as Dr. Pink would like to point out....Look at how much better Gussie is feeling.

Dr. Pink thinks its because this formula has qualities that act as an anti-inflammatory.

Dr Pink is please that Carol sent us these wonderful pictures of her beautiful Gussie!

Subject: Update on Gussie

Hi Holly!

Despite the Dissolve and a change to a grain free diet (too new to make a difference), Gussie's growth continued to increase in size. We made a decision last weekend to contact the vet and schedule surgical removal. The same day I made those arrangements, the lump got skinned (like we use to do to our knees) on her walk. It had also started becoming an irregular shape, like a roast looks when tied with string.

It was removed today and specimens sent to UM in Columbia for analysis. Dr. Lang, our new vet, did laser surgery (the old vet wasn't equipped for that) and said there had been more than fatty tissue in it. Gussie is recuperating at home tonight after coming through everything just fine.

Once she is eating again, we will resume the Dissolve All Over along with her Grain Free diet. What would be an appropriate maintenance dosage for her? Her weight fluctuates between 55 & 60 pounds.

We found Halo at our local Petco stores, but kept looking and found Natural Balance from Dick Van Patton. They have 2 flavors of Grain Free food ... we chose Sweet Potato & Venison. Gussie LOVES it!! Her coat has become VERY soft as well.

So far, in addition to a livelier dog (remember, her dob is 9/14/95), her ears have become a lot less waxy. We used to have to clean them at least twice a week (5-6 cotton swabs per ear) with a fizzing solution ... now we are going 7-10 days and even then only using 2 cotton swabs per ear - maximum.

We are hoping that the change in diet and continuing the Dissolve will keep her from developing additional lumps.

I've attached a few pictures for you, #923 was taken about the time we first noticed the lump in March '08 (back right paw); #958 was taken about 3 months later; and #596 is so you can see her right-side-up.

Thanks for helping us find a way to make her very-later years more enjoyable!

Very gratefully yours,
Carol & Doug Dorr

Meet Enchantee....One of our favorite stories

Dr. pink Pinkerton and I received a 9-11 call from Robin, Enchantee's person (mom). She was in tears because everyone was telling her to put down this beautiful girl who is 15 years old.

Enchantee had developed a cough that could not be stopped, she was in the emergency room and still they could do nothing for her.

That is when the team got the phone call asking for something for her baby, she was not ready to let her go....Bowser said Dr. Pink Pinkerton, lets get this stuff out Federal Express so we can help this beauty that is in distress.

The PawHealer never knows if we can help...we just use our best judgment and pick the pattern that the cough fits into....and we cross our tails and toes and fingers. In the case of Enchantee, we felt that because she had hind leg weakness, it was a case of Kidney Not Grasping the Qi....

Guess what....IT WORKED for Enchantee and she is 15 years old and she is now now not coughing.

This is the note we recieved;

Hi, Holly!

Thank you for asking for a picture of Enchantee'. Here is a picture of her before she lost her jaw to cancer. I will to up load a current photo of her and send it to you asap.

In addition to less coughing, she also has a lot more energy. Probably more than she has ever had since she had to have her jaw removed two years ago. This stuff is magic! She is 15 and acting like she is 5!

We cannot thank you enough for your help with our "daughter!"
