Acupuncture For Pets

Dr Liz Fernandez DVM, CVA

Reverend Maggie Urpin

"Approximately 8 months ago, my female Lab/Chow mix, Heide, was diagnosed with skin cancer. Her skin was flaking and no matter what I tried, I couldn't get rid of it. I finally took her to a dermatologist, who took a biopsy and found cancer. Her suggestion was to put her on Lomustine (a chemotherapy drug) and she told me that Heide would probably only have a few short, uncomfortable months to live.
At that time I turned to my friend Dr Liz and she immediately changed Heidi's diet to one of fish, carrots, and garlic, (which she loves by the way). She then started a regimen of acupuncture and Chinese herbs to help improve her life. Needless to say, it all worked beautifully. Dr Liz comes in every other week and does acupuncture and Heide acts like a puppy again. She is thriving and the cancer is in check.
I'd like to take a moment to talk about Dr Liz. She's one of those rare people that radiates love and compassion. The animals love her and know that their unconditional love is returned. For example, I have another Lab and he hides when anyone comes into the house. The first time Dr. Liz walked into my house, he immediately walked over to her and nuzzled her hand to be pet; that spoke volumes to me. Her presence is one of calm and peace. She does everything she can to help her patients. She has integrity and a passion for her work that is rare these days. I trust her with the care of my dogs.
I thank God daily for having Dr Liz in my life."
