Paralyzed And Now Walking

Re: Paralyzed and now Walking


Hello and Good morning fellow readers.

It’s a little gloomy and foggy here, although I am sure those of you in Southern California would like to have some of this weather.

I am hoping that those of you who live there are safe – including your pets.

At first he was sore

I mentioned in yesterday’s newsletter a dog (called Cheech) who was partially paralyzed.

He was first seen on Sunday with difficulty moving – his back was very sore.

X-Rays revealed a wedged Vertebrae – suggestive of a prolapsed disc.

He had no neurological deficits – meaning all tests for his reflexes were normal.

He was sent home with an anti-inflammatory, instructions for rest and massage of the sore area.


BUT… he deteriorated.

In fact he became partially paralyzed.

So when I saw him yesterday morning, he could NOT stand.

He had delayed reflexes – he Knuckled on his right and left rear legs.

His spine was being compressed by the prolapsing disc, resulting in partial paralysis.

He could NOT urinate on his own.

WHAT to do?

At this point you start to think about surgery- a referral back surgery.

His owner wanted to try a few conservative things first.

1. A urinary catheter, so he could pass urine and NOT damage his bladder.

2. An inject-able anti-inflammatory/pain reliever. I gave him an injection of something similar he had the previous day.

3. Acupressure. He was an ideal case to try this out on.

I performed 4 acupressure treatments.

I made contact over the sore point (L5-L6) the lower lumbar spine, just in front of the start of the pelvis – and 2 additional acupressure points:

GV4, and GV20 – The same points that I teach in the Acupressure Video.

It’s at http://www.theonlinevet.com

And what happened to Cheech?

Up and WALKING the next day.

He urinated on his own.

Yes he is still stiff and painful, but the Knuckling was GONE.

IN fact he went home with one VERY elated owner yesterday – and I gave his owner specifics on how to perform Acupressure at home.

Did this happen because of Acupressure?

Maybe- or maybe not.

But that is the FASTEST recovery from a spinal injury that I have ever seen.

And I have seen many in 15 years.

Will I use Acupressure again?

    I think you need to read this as I some of your language disturbing to me as a Pet Owner and sometimes Breeder.

    Thanks to Charlotte McGowan for the message below “Watch Your Language”
    which is especially appropriate right now for Texas. HSUS and Texas Humane
    Legislation Network (assisted by all Texas “animal rights” groups) have a
    publicity campaign in full swing to get a “Puppy Mill” Bill passed by our
    state legislature during the upcoming session. The HSUS media campaign had
    already begun nationwide with “Baby,” the three-legged dog supposedly
    rescued from a puppy mill. To the extremists anyone who breeds dogs is a
    “puppy mill.” They work in incremental steps to end all use and interaction
    with animals until their goal is eventually accomplished. We hope you’ll
    read Charlotte’s message carefully and tell your friends. Charlotte is an
    AKC judge and exhibitor.

    From Charlotte McGowan:
    I would like to make some observations about language. The animal rights
    people want to change language to help them in their quest to give animals
    legal standing and we are helping them. Time to stop.

    Adopting – this is a term used for humans. We don’t adopt animals. Sorry,
    rescues don’t offer dogs for adoption either. They offer them for placement.
    They re-home them. But they aren’t adopted. If money changes hands, they
    sell them. A shelter here in Mass grosses over $700,000 a year selling
    imported shelter strays, mutts and feral street dogs. They go for $350 a
    pop. They don’t rescue in my opinion, they keep product in the store! They
    have a big so-called not for profit 501(c)3 business. If we start calling it
    like it is (and I do) believe me you are going to feel so much better. Now
    if a purebred rescue collects money from someone for a dog, they are taking
    money as a placement or re-homing fee or they are asking to be reimbursed
    for expenses related to the re-homing. If you need it to be warmer and
    fuzzier, it is humane re-homing. Let’s drop adoption. Animal rights people
    love us if we help them. Let’s stop helping them.

    Fostering – This is a term used for children taken by the state and put in
    the care of people not their parents. We don’t foster dogs. We provide
    temporary care for displaced dogs. Sorry if you find that awkward but we can
    all benefit by retraining ourselves.

    Guardian – legal term used for the legally responsible person caring for a
    minor child or incapacitated person. I think we get this one. We have to
    fight Guardian language in animal ordinances tooth and nail because a
    guardian takes away ownership from the owner. If you own a dog it is yours.
    If you are a guardian, you are not an owner. You are a person or entity with
    legal care responsibility. If dogs have guardians instead of owners, we no
    longer have ownership rights.

    Puppy Mill- There is no such thing. Puppy mill is a slur, like the “n…..”
    word. Let’s stop using it. We hate substandard kennels. We want all dogs to
    be kept well. Well kept dogs are well kept dogs whether they are in kennels
    or in homes. It isn’t about how many dogs there are it is about how well
    they are kept. HSU$ calls all farms factory farms. When have you ever heard
    them talk about or care about family farms? Now they call all breeders
    puppy mills. They try to mumble in a remote footnote that there might be
    some good breeders but for them it is all about shelters and if not shelters
    rescues. Do you get it? They use language to slander all animal use and all
    dog breeders. Their mumbled lip service doesn’t fly with me.

    Rescue – what is a rescue? To me, IMHO, it is taking on the care and
    rehoming of a dog in a true need situation. This includes when the owners
    are incapacitated or die, have to go into a care facility like a nursing
    home, lose their home, etc. When some one just wants to dump a dog because
    they are tired of it, that’s a disposal job. I am not nice to such people.
    When purebred rescues go into auctions and buy dogs I call that just plain
    dumb. That is assisting and supporting commercial breeders. Some people may
    not agree but supporting this sort of thing does absolutely nothing for
    purebred dogs.

    Words that do not belong in the language at all – furbabies, furkids, fur
    children. All of these terms make animals into children who (gasp) need
    guardians, adoption and fostering.

    So I hope you watch your language!

    Does Ms. McGowan breed dogs by any chance or is she strictly a judge and pet owner. If anyone has any info that would be great.

    Charlotte McGowan is a lobbyist for the AKC and supports their puppy mill breeding division. The AKC makes its primary income from puppy mills and lobbies for them.

    Do a net search for “Patti Strand” on sourcewatch. She was/is chair of the opuppy mill division and McGowan’s partner.
