Testimonial by: Beth D.

Sam is an older beagle at nearly 13 years old. In late December, we noticed she was feeling bad, which we attributed to her age and arthritis in her knees and hips. Bad quickly went to worse where she was unable to walk. At our first vet appointment it was determined that Sam had some how managed to injure her neck, and then after a few additional vet visits we learned she had likely damaged her spine around her neck area. We were given a series of options that were all equally bad, but the vet called back and suggested we try Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee came out immediately. (Dr. Lee had filled in at our vet clinic and was aware of how bad Sam’s condition had become.) After a series of visits which included acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy, exercise, and physical therapy, Sam has gone back to being her goofy and happy old lady self. Dr. Lee worked closely with my husband, and we began combining what she was doing with Sam with at-home exercises, massage, and acupressure activities. I’m happy to report that Sam can turn her head to the right (a huge improvement), she has become more stable when she walks, and we can now touch her neck without her becoming completely distressed. Dr. Lee has been patient, kind, and very understanding when it comes to Sam’s needs. I highly recommend her, and we will continue seeing her. Sam personally gives her two paws up.
