One Shot Over the Line, Sweet Jesus
I went through this exact thing with my lab, Chuck, my ❤ dog. He was diagnosed in August 2012 with LP then DM 2 months later. Acupuncture and water therapy gave me 8 months I don’t think I would have had. When he could no longer move his back end without help, I let him go. He was 13. My heart is still broken. –Cindi, in our comments
What Cindi is speaking of is getting her 13 year old vaccinated (he was “due,” according to her vet).
LP? Laryngeal paralysis. Lost his normal voice, and Chuck’s breathing got noisy.
DM? Degenerative myelitis. Basically, paralyzed from the waist down.
I hear variations of this way more often than I’d like.
They make me cringe.
- Cringe for your animals getting steamrolled by conventional vets.
- Cringe for you, following Dr. WhiteCoat’s instructions and seeing your animal fall apart.
- Cringe for my profession who, if they don’t know better, are causing harm.
- Cringe even more for my colleagues who DO know better but let the siren song of easy income entice them to vaccine injure your seniors.
