    Hi,

    We adopted a six year old Golden Retriever this year and his health seemed fine-energetic, playful, etc. When I noticed he wasn’t eating for a couple of days and laying around, I took him to the Vet thinking it was a stomach bug or something. The Vet, after seeing his heart rate (250) said our dog is very sick. He suspected heart worms and renal failure, and did a blood test which confirmed it. He suggested we put him to sleep, but I said to try something, so he put him on an IV since Friday morning to see if he could flush out the toxins and get his kidneys functioning better. Today when we visited, the Vet said he will do another blood test in the morning (monday) to see if there is any improvement, but that the dog is vomiting and not putting out enough urine. Our dog got up when he saw my son this morning while visiting, wagged his tail and so he appears to still have spunk and fight in him.

    The Vet told my husband that we should put him to sleep, maybe take him home for one day, to have a last day together, then bring him back to put him out of what’s coming (an agonizing death).

    So, I’m here out of desperation really, trying to learn if there is ANY alternative treatment which could possibly save his life that we could try when we take him home tomorrow.

    Please, please answer asap, and let me know what you think.
    Thank you!

    There’s always a lot that can be done beyond strictly conventional care. Without a diagnosis however, it is impossible to say what and how. Heartworm disease is definitely treatable and if the kidney failure is due to the heartworms then perhaps that would then improve as well.

    If you want to go further I would first advise consulting an internal medical specialist [url]http://www.acvim.org/Specialist/Search.aspx[/url] to see if there is more that can be done conventionally. At the same time I would advise consulting a vet homeopath [url]http://www.theavh.org/referral/index.php[/url] for internal curative treatment.

    Good luck.

    Dr. Jeff

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
