Our initial expectations were low, but by the second treatment we saw clear signs of improvement. After a few treatments Jake rose more easily to his feet, played like a puppy with our 3-year old Lab, loped comfortably around the pasture with our horse and sheep and resumed his normal healthy appetite. His ears hardly ever required cleaning and the bald spot nearly filled in. Dr. Lanphear's kind and gentle nature also immediately won over Jake, who had always been afraid of visiting a veterinary clinic. He had even refused treats while at the clinic, but readily accepted them from Dr. Lanphear. It was wonderful watching him relax at the onset of each treatment session as he settled into a nap for the duration. After treatment he was full of energy and enthusiasm, prompting play and begging for walks along the trails.
Acupuncture has given Jake much greater comfort and quality of life. As he approaches 15 years of life and remains free of daily medications, and I am amazed to see his playful puppy spirit shine through in spite of his distinguished grey hair. I highly recommend Dr. Lanphear to you, dear dog owners, for the sake of your best friend.
