Ridge’s Success Story

Ridge the golden retriever successfully treated with acupuncture, happily playing with balls.

“Ridge, my 13-year-old gorgeous Golden Retriever, had begun demonstrating trouble getting up and walking around. I sought out Dr. Jessie for acupuncture treatment to see if we could help his arthritis and difficulty moving. Dr. Jessie’s treatments, along with physical therapy exercises and massage, helped my baby walk (and run!) around the house and yard! He now plays with his ball and his younger brother more, and is back to his old self.
The biggest change I saw with my boy is that now he will try and get up on the bed with us – before we started his treatments, he could barely stand up without our help. I’m so happy to have our dog back!”

Cooper’s Success Story

Successfully treated Cooper the dog with Chinese herbs

“I wanted to reflect on how finding Dr. Dreyfuss, a Veterinarian whose expertise in Animal Acupuncture as well as traditional western veterinary medicine, has been a Godsend to me.

I have long believed in treating my 4 legged ‘children’ through Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), and, when necessary, integrate ‘regular’ western veterinary medicine treatment, for the past 25 years with the many rescue dogs I’ve adopted. I believe in TCVM because its goal is to treat the ’cause’ of the illness and address the symptoms.

She has succeeded in helping Cooper, my “Everglades Rescue” mixed breed canine, with his severe, intermittent, skin problems. He’s had 4 treatments and he is 85% better, and has not had the severe breakouts over his belly and thighs since he’s started with the treatments. He also is on Chinese Herbs, which augment the efficacy of his acupuncture treatments, and receives a VERY high quality diet.

I cannot say enough about how impressed I am with her veterinary abilities. I find myself recommending her to all my friends who have pets with ongoing problems. I have no doubts that others will experience her just as I have – offering a cost effective alternative, as well as holistic lifestyle advice, to assist in getting critters back to health and stay in optimal health throughout their lives.”

Dante’s Success Story

Dante the dog was successfully treated with physical therapy and is smiling happily at the camera.

“Dante started having arthritis/mobility issues around age 12. His hips were noticeably inflamed. And one of his shoulders was worse than the other, so he limped everywhere. It took us 30 minutes to get around the block for our morning walk, and he moved as little as possible during the day.

He was clearly suffering, and the oral anti-inflammatory Rimadyl and weight loss plan didn’t really help. Plus, we were nervous about using the Rimadyl long-term. On bad days, I couldn’t help but think that the end was in sight.

Just as I was giving up hope on helping Dante improve in a way that was safe and effective, I heard about Dr. Dreyfuss through a friend.
During our first session, Jessie worked her acupuncture magic and also took the time to show me some physical therapy moves that I could do with Dante. In particular, we changed our feeding routine to involve some simple rehab exercises. It took Dante a few days to acclimate to the new routine, but by the end of the first week, his hips were definitely less inflamed, he was limping less than he had been in years, and he seemed much more comfortable during walks.

After a few more weeks of the new routine and sessions with Jessie, I couldn’t believe how much Dante had improved. Hip inflammation was minimal. On some walks, he didn’t limp at all – one of my neighbors thought I had gotten a new dog! Dante spins in circles excitedly when I come home, like he used to do when he was a much younger dog. The dog that I had known for so many years is back, and every day that I get to spend with him is a gift.

I’m so glad I called Jessie and let her work with Dante. Highly recommended – if your dog is suffering, give her a call.”
