I just wanted to add this in, regarding the comment about soy being bad for animals, Nzymes are entirely sprout-derived, it avoids trypsin inhibitors which are found in raw soybeans which can disrupt the digestive tract. Being made from sprouts, they are completely different from every other soy products which are made from the beans. If we had followed the traditional vets 'care' she would still be boxed up in her kennel. We took her back to the traditional vet yesterday to show them that Bella is walking, and they brought every staff member out to come and see her. They were all amazed at her success. I'm now working on compiling my video diary of her day to day improvements so that they can use her story to show to other patients in the same situation. They were the ones who suggested bringing her to the natural healing vet for treatment. Doing the alternative treatment absolutely played a big part in her recovery, I would recommend it to anyone. After Bella's last appt with the NH vet on Monday, we no longer need to take her back, unless something drastically changes. smile

Bella was on prednisone and robaxin after her injury. She got all the proper meds while at, and after the vet stay. She remained on them until and up day 10. I'm not product pitching, I have nothing to gain from doing that, all we know is what we were told by our natural healing vet. She told us that whatever we were doing, to keep on doing it because she was doing 'amazingly great'. To have her starting to walk so soon, 'something' comtributed to that, it cant be denied. When faced with such a traumatic event, and having listened to your dog screaming, and seeing her body all distorted, knowing you cannot afford the surgery, you'll do whatever you can. After reading all the success stories, I saw people saying 'I thought it was too good to be true' etc etc, only then to see and hear how their dogs had started to improve, I thought that ALL these people can't be wrong!!! And really, I could either have done nothing, or tried it. I mentioned I also have 3 other animals, two of them being a very senior dog and cat. The changes in those two, is crazy. Especially the 12 year old dog. He's running, jumping, playing, fighting and wants to go go go. Something we haven't seen in years. He has had arthritis for years, hindering his mobility. Not anymore. So, you can say 'product pitch' all you want, I'm telling you that this worked. No other changes to the dogs Zero G food diet, except the addition of Nzymes. Same as the cat. It's undeniable. I was in a very dark, despaired place after this happened to Bella, and I'm the type of person to not stop till I find answers. I needed to know we were going to do all we can, even though surgery was not able to be an option. And to have a dog who less than three weeks after her injury is walking and back to being herself? I know that what we did was the right thing. If you don't try, you won't know right? I'm the type of person that has to know, and even though it all sounds to good to be true, it is true. I found something that seemed hopeful,, and it worked. I'm a big skeptic too, but I know we did all we could for Bella, and to have her back, is wonderful. And that's all that matters. smile

This may sound silly, but 'tail pulls'. Grab your dog firmly at the base of the tail, and pull. Hold for ten seconds, release slowly, and repeat five times. Do this a few times a day. Doing so stimulates the nerve 'juices' in their spinal cord, and wakes up the neurones. By repeating the steps a few times, it creates 'ripples' in the spine of the dog, which rejuvenated 'dead' or weak spots. Also when petting your dog, 'rake' your fingers along their spinal cord, making sure to move positions to not keep only stimulating one spot. This also greatly helps keep everything in the dogs spine to be sensitive and cells alive. These are both life long exercises to do with/for your dog. I just learnt so much after recently having a paralyzed dog. After 2 weeks she was walking!! We used a natural vet, who practiced Chinese medicine therapy, including acupuncture and lazed therapy, and taught us really simple rehabilitation and lifelong tips for keeping her spine healthy. I also found a product online called Nzymes which has also very much contributed to her quick recovery. Check if your city has a natural healing vet, it works! smile

On December 1, 2012, at 1:15AM, our little Bella, a Pomeranian Japanese Chin dog (4 years old) suffered a spinal injury after chasing one of our cats. She was paralyzed. Within an hour we had her at the vet, only to be informed that this was not good. It appeared that she'd probably been born with a condition called IVDD, and this may have caused a disc rupture, or such sort of trauma to her spinal cord. Our options were surgery, however the MRI machine located in my city is broken. This would mean sending her out of province, or out of the country, to have this surgery performed. The cost of the surgery? A minimum of $4000. Being a family of five, with three small children, I am a stay-at-home mom, this was not an option. Or, we could euthanize her. This was something we couldn't even fathom. The other option was the 'conservative method' of rehabilitating her. She remained at the vet for 36 hours. During that time, our world was rocked. We couldnt believe how in a moment, everything changed for Bella. I couldn't sit still. I felt helpless. So sad for her. There HAD to be something else we could do for her?? After tearing the Internet apart, I was led to a product called Nzymes. I started reading, listening, and watching the stories of people and the results they had encountered with the product. Not only with paralysis, but many other health issues. Having a dog who desperately needed all the help she could get, I realized that I had nothing to lose but possibly everything to gain by trying this for Bella. It gave me hope.. I brought home a shell of a dog from the vet. It wasnt our Bella. Our hearts were broken. We felt such devastation. We knew this was going to be a long road. Bella had no movement or strength in her back end. She had no 'bathroom controls' either. But at least those worked. It would occur randomly. We were told to keep her in a crate for 6-8 weeks. No movement. For the first two days after bringing her home from the vet she just slept. On the third day home, 5th day after her injury, we took her to a Natural Healing Vet to start treatment and Rehab. She received Accupunture, and Lazer Therapy for half an hour. That day, the Nzymes arrived and we started her and our 3 other animals on the product. After that, she just started getting better and better everyday, and stronger. On day 13 after her injury, and day 9 of Nzymes, she took her first steps!!! And now, on the eve of week 3, I have a little dog walking everywhere!!! She looks a bit like a drunken sailer, but its just amazing!! To think she walked within 2 weeks of her paralysis? She also has full bathroom functions and control back, and lets us know when she wants out. We are so happy. 3 weeks ago, Bella was a limp rag doll. She couldn't stand on her back legs at all. If she did move, she could only pull herself along like a seal. There is so much more to tell about, but it would be a novel. smile We have our Bella back in everyway. After a total of 3 visits to the Natural Healing Vet, and Nzymes, I have a dog who's prognosis was not promising, but yet rose above it all. If I had listened to the traditional Vet, I would've left her in her kennel for the next 6 to 8 weeks. But I have learnt to not to let her waste and wither away, as we can clearly see she has it in her to heal and walk again. Her damage is done. Leaving her confined would only have broken her spirit even more, and weaken the strong muscles she has now. Conservative treatment has definitely been the best for our little one. We massage her and work her legs and muscles frequently during the day and keep her mobile, because we can and she wants to!!!! I never thought there was hope, but with the path we were lead down, everything we've done has contributed to her being back on her feet in such a short time. Anyone who is faced with this, please know there's Hope. We did everything right, even though we couldnt afford the surgery, but taking the 'natural' way with rehabilitation, and Nzymes all played a big part. We didn't give up, and we're so glad we didn't!!! smile
