No Limp or Stiffness in Gracie’s Leg!

Gracie Mitchell

Gracie is a 6 year old Golden Retriever/Labrador X that had suffered from a limp in her back leg since she was a 6 month old puppy. Gracie had also suffered from trembling and weakness in the same leg. This problem was diagnosed as arthritis and lack of joint mobility by a veterinarian. In the past, Gracie had been given omega 3 fish oils, glucosamine and chondroitin with no success. Gracies owners then contacted Sara for advice.

After an online assessment of Gracie’s health was completed, Sara prescribed some naturopathic formulas for her treatment.

2 weeks into Gracie’s treatment, we received this email from her owners:

“I wanted to let you know that Gracie is doing well. We do not expect the limp to remedy quickly (due to her having it since she was 6 months old) but she has sparked up tremendously and looks a lot happier, resting with “Emma,” the labrador and playing like a puppy again. Her fur seems softer and she has a shine in her eyes again. Other people have noticed also. The best part is that we have no trouble adding the supplements to her food. I was expecting a battle but she happily eats it”.

6 weeks into treatment we received this email from Gracie’s owners:

“I am happy to report that the limp is nowhere near as pronounced as before and there are times when Gracie is walking normally again. For the past 10 days or so she has been spontaneously jumping in and out of the van and has been taking longer walks and runs around the lake. We are now confident that in due course the leg will not be the chronic source of pain for her anymore”.

10 weeks after Gracie started treatment:

“Our dog walking friends took them out on Sunday and they were gone a full 45 minutes and Gracie was still tugging the lead when they got back. For the first time ever, they were worn out before the dogs were. Johnny had not seen them for a while and could not get over the difference. The best part is that the next day there was no limp or stiffness visible in Gracie’s leg at all.”

Recurrent Ear Infection
“Elroy is our kelpie cross Labrador that had suffered repeated bouts of ear infection for over 2 years before contacting Sara Rooney. Before that, Elroy had completed 9 courses of antibiotics with little or no effect. His ears were causing him and us a lot of stress. We emailed Sara to see if she could help us. After assessing his problem, Elroy was placed on a treatment program. His response was dramatic. We couldn’t believe he could respond so quickly to any treatment let alone all natural ones. We were given powders and liquids to put in his food and given instructions on diet changes. We have maintained the diet and some of the treatments that were recommended – to avoid any more infections. That was a year ago and no more ear infections! An added bonus is Elroy’s coat has never looked so good and he doesn’t smell anymore.”

Inflammatory Skin Condition in Dog
“Missy had suffered from itchy skin ever since we could remember. She is an 8 yo, West Highland Terrier and she is part of the family. We had tried so many different preparations from a number of different vets that we had lost count of all of them. Some worked temporarily but never for long and some had pretty bad side effects. Out of desperation we eventually sought alternatives.
Sara put Missy on a special diet and prescribed a number of different supplements for her. After about 4 weeks, we were amazed at the difference in her skin, her itchiness and her behaviour – probably because she was a lot happier. After about 3 months she continued to improve. That was about 18 months ago and Missy hardly ever scratches herself anymore as long as we keep her on her preventative treatment program. Seeing the discomfort it caused her before – we wouldn’t dream of changing a thing!”

Anxiety Disorder in Dog

Angus Lapidge

“Just a quick note to let you know that everything is going really well with Angus. We have been on your treatment plan for four weeks now and he has had no anxiety ‘episodes’ and he seems less anxious with some things. I must thank you also as Angus and I had our first pass at our Open Obedience Trial (you need 3 passes to gain a title of CDX) after we have been trialling for 2 years – it was very exciting. Thanks again!”

4 weeks on Your Treatment and Piper was a Different Dog!
“Just a few words to let you know how much you have helped Piper and us! Piper was really ill for about 7 months and no-one could figure out what was wrong with him. The vet took about 20 blood tests in the end and X-rayed just about his whole body! Still no answers! You solved the riddle immediately!! As soon as we read your advice the light bulb went on and we had all the answers we had been searching for! Even our vet was impressed and admitted he had learned something!

4 weeks on your treatment and Piper was a different dog. No more symptoms at all and back to his normal obnoxious (but lovely) self. We can’t thank you enough”.

From depressed to playful & very, very happy
“Muffy is a purebred Maltese who suffered red tear-stained eyes and repeated occurrences of vomiting, diarrhoea and gastric pain. He had been depressed and tired for a few months culminating in another one of these episodes. Muffy is like a new dog. He is playful, full of energy and very, very happy. Thank you so much Sara. If it weren’t for you, Muffy would not be the new boy he is and be able to play like a puppy with his new brother Sammy.”

Puzzle Finally Solved
“Sara, I can’t thank you enough for helping Emmy. She continuously suffered from itchy skin and ear infections before using your advice.

The puzzle is finally solved and so are all her problems!
Thank you so much Sara.”

“I’m not exaggerating when I say that this book (& Sara’s advice) has saved Igor’s life! After many months of tests, Igor was diagnosed with SLE (auto-immune disease) and the vets put him on cortisone and told us that’s all they could offer him.

They warned us that he will not see old age and that autoimmune diseases were common in bull mastiffs – not very helpful or positive advice. The vets also didn’t know ‘why’ Igor got the disease – maybe they should read this book then they might learn something!

To look at Igor now – You would never know he had been so ill!
His skin is now excellent and he is 100% symptom-free.
Every dog owner in the world should read this book! ”

Jim Bower, Bathurst, NSW. Australia

Never before have I read a book that offers so much information that can truly help dogs. I have bought many books over the years about natural healing but they all just offer basic advice on treating different disorders. This is entirely different! Sure it offers treatment advice for various problems but more importantly it provides real answers about the actual causes of disease – not just feeble advice on how to treat the symptoms. It will be my “No. 1” reference book from now on! This book totally changes the way I look at disease altogether – I can’t wait for Sara to write more books on health!

“Our 6 yo boxer, Milly, was diagnosed with a candida infection which had ‘No known cause’ – and this book explains exactly how she got it! We then followed the diet and treatment advice given in the book and Milly’s candida is now totally gone! No more itching! Her skin is now beautiful; her energy has returned; and best of all she is happy again. We now understand what we need to feed our dogs; what supplements we need to give them both and how we can prevent a whole host of other problems from developing. “Heal Your Dog Naturally” delivered everything we needed to know and more! Thank You Sooo Much Sara!”

Our Beautiful Boy Is Happy Again!
“Clive was suffering from severe arthritis and his vet had him on pain killers and anti-inflammatory medications and said he needed to be on these for the rest of his life.
NOT GOOD ENOUGH! We wanted other answers.
We wanted to know ‘What’ was causing his arthritis – not just ply him with pain killers for the rest of his days. He’s way too precious for that. This book gave us all the answers and, better still – provided us with a successful treatment plan that DOESN”T cause more problems than what it treats.
We can’t thank Sara enough for what she has done for Clive. No more pain. No more digestive problems and way more energy! Our beautiful boy is happy again!”

Thyroid condition in Wolfhound
“Sara Rooney has saved my dog from inevitable death. I had her to a number of vets, including specialist vets which all cost me a fortune for nothing. None of them had any idea what was causing her symptoms and she was slowly dying. Sara organized a hair analysis and requested magnified photos of her eyes. To be honest, at first I wondered if it was just throwing more money to the wind but her analysis of Penny’s case was spot on. She picked up things that no one else had ever picked up and her treatments worked wonderfully. Admittedly Penny needed to take a fair few things at first – but she was in a really bad way. Her thyroid problems had got to the stage they were affecting her heart & kidneys. Now she will be on a maintenance treatment for her thyroid for the rest of her life probably but at least it is all natural so I don’t mind at all. I will never take Penny back to a vet ever again (unless she needs emergency surgery or something!) and will only ever consult Sara on Penny’s health problems. We also now use Sara’s recommended natural worming program and the homoeopathic treatments she prescribes for disease prevention. So Penny is now an All Natural dog! No more toxic wormers or vaccines ever again. ”

Osteo arthritis in dog
“Herman was in a bad way when I contacted Sara Rooney. Herman is my Schnauzer and was in a dreadful amount of pain. The vet had diagnosed osteoarthritis and had him on 2 different drugs but they weren’t really helping plus the possible side effects of their use worried me. I emailed Sara to get her advice. I’m SO glad I did as it has made Herman’s life bearable and almost pain-free. The only time he seems to have any problems now is if he tries to climb up into the back of my truck – so I lift him up instead. His energy levels have returned to when he was a pup again! Herman only required some minor dietary changes and some natural liquids and powders mixed in with his food each day. I have even started taking the treatments myself as I have my own arthritic problems in my knees (old sporting injuries) and am getting great results. Herman and I can now grow old together – pain free! ”
