|Rock, our schmeagle beagle, with Suga in the background.|
I am happy to report that since my last post about Rock, he has had a couple weeks of continued acupuncture and cold laser therapy and he seems to be feeling better.
I have very seldom used our blog to recommend a person (I stick to restaurants!) but I just have to let you all know about Rock's acupuncturist, Dr. Nancy Tharp. For a couple of reasons. First, many of our readers asked. Also, she has totally changed Rock's direction from being close to euthanasia to walking around and in a lot less pain.
For those of you who are reading about Rock for the first time, he is the senior of our family, almost 18 years old. When we got back from vacation he was struggling to walk. Our vet highly recommended Dr. Tharp and a few days later she was in our living room giving Rock treatments.
She does house calls!
Yes, we are still living in the reality that Rock is an old guy. With Dr. Tharp's treatments, I honestly think we can keep Rock in a lot less pain, with the ability to walk, as he lives his last months or year (years would be wonderful of course!).
For those of you in the Denver area who asked, here is Dr. Tharp's information:
Nancy Tharp, DVM, CVA
She does acupuncture and Class IV Laser Therapy. Rock is getting both.
We have really been grateful to Dr. Tharp, and we both very much like her. If you have a companion animal in a similar situation as our Rock is and are in the Denver area, give her a ring.
Thanks for reading, and thank you so much to all of you who have sent love to Rock!
