Thunder is a 13 ½ year-old American Eskimo with two passions – car rides and walks. Until five years ago, I’d often say he’d happily walk to Africa if I’d let him lead me there on his leash. Then he slowed down dramatically. Thunder was diagnosed with arthritis. Even with medication, it reached a point where he’d have a hard time making it around the block.
My how times change with a lot of prayer and a wonderful vet. Dr. Tracy Radcliffe examined every inch of Thunder and made treatment decisions that have vastly improved our lives. Thunder is still on medication. However, I noticed an improvement, particularly in the limping and his ultra-sensitive back, after acupuncture treatments. He improved even more after a few sessions on the magnetic therapy bed.
To helplessly watch one’s four-legged baby suffer is a terrible thing. I am so very grateful to Dr. Radcliffe for making my boy feel so much better.
I believe Thunder is also grateful. This is the first doctor’s office I haven’t had to push, pull or carry him into. He appreciates her gentle, caring nature and the way she talks to him. He happily trots in, like he knows we are both in good hands.
