We took Zoey to the vet because she was limping very poorly and could not put weight on the left leg. On August 3, 2021, Zoey was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer on her upper left leg). When I received the news, it felt like my world came tumbling down. I was devastated, angry, and sad. I didn’t know what to do. The vet told me I had to amputate her leg and start on chemo and radiation ASAP! If I decide not to move forward with this, Zoey will only have 2 to 3 months to live. I felt helpless and pressured to do something that I wasn’t comfortable with. So I started to do my research on Osterocoma to educate myself about the situation better so I could make an informed decision and learn about the holistic approach. I did a google search, and that’s when I found Healing Paws Center.
I read the raving reviews and looked at their website to see what services they offer to pets with cancer. I loved what I read, so I decided to make a call. I loved the customer service. They listened to my concerns, and I felt very comfortable bringing Zoey to them. Long story short, my and husband and I agreed that amputating Zoey’s leg was not an option for us because she is a large breed that weighs 126 lbs.
We changed her diet from kibbles to raw, and she also takes Chinese meds, CBD oil, herbs like kelp, turmeric, and spirulina powders in her food. And thanks to the care and magic hands at Healing Paws Center, Zoey has been able to put her weight on her left leg and walk without hopping on three legs like in the past it was so bad that we had to put her in a wagon to take her out to the back yard to use the bathroom. She still limps a bit, but it’s way better than before because now she can put her paw down and walk.
Zoey’s treatment at Healing Paws Center is acupuncture and ozone therapy once a week. At home, I give Zoey a spa day every day, which consists of massaging her left leg with her favorite pet massager from Paw Wave and listening to spa music. With many prayers, keeping the faith, and thanks to the excellent staff and doctors like Dr. Gersten, and Dr. Jessie, Zoey is walking better, being good-spirited, and still alive.
I highly recommend Healing Paws Center because they genuinely care for Zoey, and she is in good hands with them. We are so delighted with Zoey’s progress, and I highly recommend they care for your pet! Thank you so much, everyone, at Healing Paws Center, for caring for Zoey and loving her so much as we do.
