“My 4 yr old dog Iggy had Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia which is a condition where the
immune system destroys the blood platelets. Iggy had developed Cushings disease as a
result of the steroids used in the initial treatment. She was also not allowed to have
the usual vaccinations in case it 'set off' the immune system again.
The vets had offered
to put Iggy down as they had nothing else to offer her, after her third relapse I was
getting worried about the high cost of maintaining her on the medication and the long
term problems that exposure to steroids can cause .
I took her to see Carolyn-Rae after she had relapsed for the third time. She was not
well and I felt she needed more than what the high doses of steroids and
immuno-suppressant's were providing. After only a few sessions Iggy's blood count started
to get higher. As the sessions continued the blood count increased to the point where
she could be completely off the steroids and able to reduce her other medications.
The prognosis for Iggy after her third relapse was not good but through BodyTalk &
Accunect sessions with Carolyn-Rae we had a much healthier, happy dog again. We are very
grateful for what Carolyn-Rae was able to do for us and the effectiveness of the
therapies she offers.”
