“When I got my dachshund Sheila, she was approximately 2 years old. She had probably been owned those first two years by an elderly person who wasn’t able to get out to take her out for a walk. She was quite overweight, had bad teeth and pancreatitis. She seemed to be used to eating very poor quality food.
One night I came home from work very late and she was dragging her back legs. She liked to get up on the back of the couch and must have jumped off, possibly in reaction to a dog outside in her yard, and injured her spine. As a result of the injury, she was also unable to control her elimination.
If I hadn’t found Eve, chances are that I probably wouldn’t have my dog Sheila right now. Veterinarians told me ‘there’s no hope’ and to ‘consider euthanasia.’ One vet said, ‘You can do all the massage therapy in the world that you want, don’t think that this dog will ever walk again.’ ”With Eve’s help, Sheila is now fully recovered.
