The anal glands were a constant bother. Our regular vet kept giving us antibiotics because she said they were infected.
After three different antibiotics, I said enough is enough. I found Dr. Carrie Donahue, an acupuncturist vet. Dr. Carrie saw Nathan’s problem right away, gave him an acupuncture session and some herbs to decrease ‘heat’ in his body.
We started seeing changes right away and after a few weeks Nathan was fine.
I know it sounds a little odd to many of you. You probably have never been to an acupuncturist yourself.
But I like results and when I don’t see them, I look for other options. Thank goodness I did.
You might be wondering if I adjust my dog as well. The answer is yes. I do meningeal releases on Nathan and adjust his spine. He doesn’t mind at all. In fact, he’s usually quite playful afterwards since that’s what he thinks we’re doing anyway.

I like Dr. Carrie’s approach to animal health and wellness, plus she started using the same enzyme products I have in my office for her patients.
I’ve found different enzyme formulas especially useful for Nathan.
For example. You know how dogs eyes drain and get all goopy? That’s do to protein deficiencies either due to not eating enough protein or not digesting it well. Well Nathan has that problem. I give him one pill of IVD (one of the enzyme products) a day in his food and his eyes are great.
Dry eyes have another cause. Itchy skin another. Allergies another. Name any symptom and I can come up with a nutritional deficiency more than likely. So can Dr. Carrie.
