The day I reached out to Dr. North was the turning point in Buc-ee’s health!

Buc-ee is our 5-year-old Border Collie mix who has suffered from “tummy troubles” since he was 5 months old. In the Fall of 2018, he became severely ill with vomiting and diarrhea that required hospitalization. I sought out the care of a veterinary internal medicine specialist when he failed to improve. It was determined he suffered from Inflammatory Bowel Disease, endoscopy revealing gastric ulcers, and small bowel inflammation. He was a very sick dog! Changing his diet to a strictly limited homemade one, and an array of medications brought some improvement, but still, he was far from “well” and badly underweight, often re-lapsing.  I knew there had to be a better way to improve his quality of life and lessen the use of medication that was resulting in other complications. I had read about Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and was intrigued, and researched all I could on it. The day I reached out to Dr. North was the turning point in Buc-ee’s health! Through her skilled knowledge of acupuncture, and the simple addition of supplements and essential oils, Buc-ee was returning to a healthy state quickly! He gained weight as his body was finally able to be nourished, and he was able to come off all his medications. I am enormously thankful to Dr. North for bringing this holistic approach to veterinary care. Buc-ee is as healthy as he is today because of her!
