Today Winchester had his holistic vet appointment. Today also marks a week since he has been home. He has gained a pound back. No regurgitation on food or water, though he still has a cough sometimes. The office is a country office, but with zen music and a diffuser with essential oils in the examine room. He tasted their refreshing bowl of water several times. He also had his eye on a pillow. He thought that it was for him. Lol 😆 The Dr went over all the medication that the hospital put him on. 3 he has finished. She wants me to finish all his prescriptions and if I see any problems, to call the vet that gave me the medications. Since we got home today, he is now down to 3 medications. She reviewed his supplements that I was giving and wants me to slowly add them back. He hasn't been on them for 2 weeks. She was very impressed with everything I had him on, but added a Chinese herbal blend. The Dr wants me to start him back on the Nuvet Wafers first. Impressive that a holistic vet approves these. They are very happy with his diet. Primal and Stella and Chewy's are their favorites. They also recommend Honest Kitchen. They said to keep on the rabbit for now.
Big shout out to my friend, Kelly at Mydogfoo.com they said keep with the Sniffy Whiffy and already knew all about your company! 😍
After going over his case, the Dr said that if he was my dog, I would start him on acupuncture. She went on to say that it would help with all the inflammation problems. The vestibular, pancreatitis, and pneumonia. So, that is what I did.
He had a few needles inserted in spcial points on his body. He shook and the one on his neck flew out. They put a leash on him and kept him calm for 10 min while the needles did their work. She said he responded well and wants to see him for a coule more treatments. He goes back on Monday and then 2 weeks after that. Evaluation after those visits. They dont know how many treatments he will need until at least 3 visits.
They say that he will probably go home and sleep. Its been a busy day for him, so I hope he gets some rest.
Thanks everyone again for your continued prayers and support.
I almost forgot! I asked what was in that diffuser because I finally could breathe the whole time I was there. She laughed and told me...."Clear the Air" from Now! I need to get some of that!
