Last Chinese New Year I remember running around looking for vets to treat my pet’s health issue. The furry friend my daughter wanted for the past 5 years finally made into our home in November 2016 when he was just 3 months old.
In February 2017 he was down with high fever and we rushed him to Mandai Vet. They informed us that his blood counts were not so good. My dog eventually recovered from the fever but within weeks he started showing signs of fatigue. He was unable to sit and when he tried to sit he could not get up. He would always whine in pain to sit and get up. We had to always give him a push whenever he wishes to stand up.
First we took him to a vet at Bukit Batok where he was x-rayed but they could not diagnose anything. They only identified that he had a birth defect – hip dysplasia. That was the first time we knew he had a birth defect.
We brought him home and gave his medication. It did not help much because we still had to experience him crying to sit or sleep. As a first time owner of a pet we were unable to ignore his pain so we decided to take him to another vet. This vet said it was a spinal injury (slip disc condition) and wanted us to go for further assessment to see a Specialist at Thomson. We brought him to see the specialist and there they requested to take a spinal fluid test, MRI etc. – A BOMB in our Pockets.
On the day of his admission and 3 weeks of misery, we thought there will be a solution but there was not. The results again showed signs of hip dysplasia but even the specialist could not tell us why he was still showing signs of difficulty in movement and lack of energy. That night my daughter’s friend recommended Dr. Oh. We immediately wanted to try anything to get him well.
WE TOOK HIM FOR AN APPOINTMENT WITH. JUST 1 TREATMENT (ACUPUNCTURE) – IS GODSEND MIRACLE DOCTOR OF PETS!! THAT VERY DAY WHEN LUCKY RETURNED HOME HE WAS NORMAL. HE DID NOT MAKE A SINGLE NOISE TO GO INTO A LYING POSITION OR GET UP.
I AM NOT GOING TO LIE IT WAS BREATHTAKING AND AM VERY GRATEFUL TO
PET, LUCKY, AS IT IS, SAID THAT DOGS WILL KNOW THEIR OWNERS ANXIETY AND EMOTIONS…THAT IS WHY UNTIL TODAY WHEN HE SEES HE GOES FANATICAL WAGGING AND JUMPING (THANKFUL FOR MAKING HIM BETTER SO HIS OWNERS ARE OUT OF THEIR MISERY).
MY FAMILY IS ALL VERY THANKFUL TOFOR HIS POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND ENCOURAGEMENT WHEN TREATING LUCKY.
