Diagnosis: Zoe Has a New Lease on Life
“Zoe “Woofy Girl” is 9 years old. In the fall of 2015, she started experiencing some sudden symptoms. She had a loss of appetite, extremely fast weight loss, coughing/gagging, lethargy, dazed eyes, and loss of bowels/bladder.
We took Zoe to Dr. Mike right away, and he quickly diagnosed her with Addison’s Disease. Although we did have to wait for the official results through blood tests, he was quick to recognize all of her symptoms and began treatment immediately. Without such a fast and critical response, Zoe may not be with us today.
Dr. Mike saw Zoe for 3 consecutive days and gave her IV fluids to keep her hydrated. During this time, we waited for the official test results, which ultimately confirmed Dr. Mike’s diagnosis. Without Dr. Mike’s intuitiveness, Zoe may not have survived.
Zoe now takes steroids every other day and has a shot every 26 days to keep her disease under control.
Today, she is back to herself again. She is active and playful and loves to lick everyone. She is the heart of our home, and we are so thankful she is still with us!”
