Today Jazz and I made the trek west today and had the consult with the homeopathic vet. It feels like I am starting fresh with treating Jazz, so I just felt a fresh thread was warranted, continued from here: http://germanshepherdhome.net/forum/ubbt...ways#Post275297

Turns out that we aren't starting with homeopathics, but, as always with this vet, very pleased with everything she picked up.

I guess the good news, from her veiwpoint, is that all of these issues seems to stem from the same imbalance, and she's fairly confident that we'll be able to get her past all of this, with some work, and this shouldn't turn into a lifetime of chronic disease. So nice to hear that.

Interesting, and I should have thought of this, but one of the emotions of the kidneys is fear ("... The emotions of the kidneys are fear and willpower. When the energy of the kidneys is weak, a person lives more in fear and acts with less determination than that of a person with stronger Kidney Qi. When the energy of the kidneys is strong, the person makes bold decisions and follows through with a strong mindset." http://moveyourqi.com/water.html ). So it might make some energetic sense that her panic attacks improve with her urinary symptoms on antibiotics.

The vet is going to focus on spleen, stomach and pancreas. We have a couple of herbals to try that I have to order (hopefully she isn't allergic), and she received an acupuncture treatment, which I think she responded really well to. The vet found a place in her back (related to stomach points) that were pretty blocked, and found sensitive areas in her low back. I have found these before and have tried to work on them, but they needed something more than I could do. Disappointed that the holistic vet that I've sorta been working with here in town never even bothered to do a similar evaluation.

In about 3 weeks, I am going to attend a seminar with Jazz that will help teach us tools to help access some of her emotional issues through body work. I don't quite understand it and how it's done in dogs, it's called psychomotor therapy, and this is about the only link that I can find: http://www.goodtherapy.org/Psychomotor.html I know that this vet has practiced this since I first took Indy to her (2001?), and I've always been curious about it, so I guess now is the time to learn. She and another person are conducting the class.

I guess I will be making more long distance trips in the future, it's about a 2 1/2 hour drive, but there are things that I'm supposed to learn here.

She is so cute. There is a book, it is all about problems with our bodies and what causes them, like kidneys and fear, lungs and not being able to let go of anger. I can't remember the name, but it could help just to read it.

Not sure if that is the one recommended to me, but it seems very similar.

She is very cute. And although I am interested to see how this works out I have a hard time with a lot of woowoo stuff.

Lisa, wow, sounds like a new adventure in gaining knowledge for you and Jazzy. The "energy" evaluations is very fascinating to me. The stomach and digestive system also is connected to fear and will be affected by being fearful or letting stress get out of control. I am interested to hear from you how your training will go. Anything you could share would be appreciated.

She is so adorable. How did she do with the needles? Was she calm through the process?

I am glad you found a Vet who seems to be more knowledgable in how to treat Jazzy. What a relief that this is not going to be a chronic issue. So, there is an end to this.

Thanks for the update.

This homeopath is clearly someone you have confidence in and if she can recommend a program that you and Jazz carry out, I think the exercise itself can be curative-whatever its principle. I couldn't make heads or tails of the link-but you will determine in the real world how it works out with Miss Jazmine.

She is such a doll.

You did just get a new car didn't you, so you're equipped for long drives smile.

Kathy - To put some of this in perspective, as a chemist, here's my take on it.

There's plenty of evidence out there that there are chemicals released in our bodies (dogs, too) that are associated with what we consider emotional responses. For example take a look at this article: Chemistry of Fear

Those chemicals ultimately have to be processed in the body somewhere and the liver and kidneys are the bodies first line of defense. So I think there is some scientific basis for the supposition presented by the vet.

What Johanna said makes perfect sense, the doctor had said the same thing about my daughter regarding her autoimmune illness.

Love the last pic of Jazz. wub
