Holistic Success for Unusual Illness

Julian was very ill. He had numerous symptoms for months that no veterinarian was able to diagnose: lethargy, limp tail, an open wound and labored breathing. Julian even saw a specialist who could not diagnose him. His owners spent about $2500 for his medications while trying to get a diagnosis.  That diagnosis, Rift Valley Fever, was unexpected and difficult to treat.

Rift Valley Fever is a fungal disease that is prevalent in desert type regions. Not many veterinarians in the Midwest know about the disease or how to treat it.  In fact, it was Julian’s breeder in Arizona who suggested RVF as a possibility, leading to his diagnosis. Dr. Carlson saw Julian in Dec 2014 when the Akita was on numerous conventional medications.  Dr. Carlson suggested custom holistic testing which showed several specific findings that supported RVF.  He prescribed two herbal remedies  and custom homeopathic drops for Julian.

Within 3 months of herbal and homeopathic therapy, Julian was off all of his conventional medications, including anti-fungal medications.  His last holistic test was completely balanced; Julian now takes no medication and is like a new dog.  “Dr. Carlson truly cured him of his fungal disease. We wouldn’t have the happy, healthy dog we do today, if it weren’t for Dr. Carlson,” said his owners, Jackie & Brian.
