Donna Y. & Hydie

We have had Hydie 11 years this August. She has been a blessing in our lives and friends and family. At the beginning of April, she had a hard time going up and down steps so I had my husband build a ramp. She did pretty good going up and down for a couple of weeks then gave up as she could hardly walk. I took her to our vet on April 14th. He did an exam and X-rays, gave her an injection of dexamethasone and 10mg of prednisone. I gave her the meds as prescribed and took her back to the vet on the 30th. He did an exam and gave her an injection of vetalog and clavamox. I have been carrying her around for 2 weeks. My heart broke as she couldn’t walk at all. I took her for a walk every day in a doggy stroller. I heard about acupuncture for animals and called everyone listed. All were filled up for a month or more. Out of desperation I begged to bring her in to the Wellness Center and got an appointment that week. As soon as I met Dr. Fong, I knew she was in good hands and I had hope. After her first appointment, she was able to walk slowly for a short period of time. After the second treatment, she was walking more and was happier than she had been in a month. After 4 treatments, she ran in to his office. She is walking every day as she used to, to the park and back. A little slower but doing the same distance she always did. We started treatment once a week and now down to once every 3 weeks. I think we are probably done with treatments soon. Thank you Dr. Fong. Hydie and I will miss you.
