Meet Corey, a wonderful Golden Retriever who has just celebrated her 14th birthday. Corey was diagnosed with kidney disease in March of 2013. Although kidney disease is a serious condition, with dietary modification, acupuncture and herbal medicine Corey's kidney values have remained stable and she is still feeling good, even competing in an obedience competition for veteran dogs! She has a great quality of life and still takes walks of over an hour with her human and canine family!
Corey is also receiving acupuncture and herbal medicine for her arthritis and hindlimb weakness and other issues, including hemorrhagic pericardial effusion (bleeding around the heart). Chinese herbal medicine can be very effective to treat bleeding disorders. Here she is relaxing during her acupuncture treatment, which she receives every 2 weeks to maintain her condition.
