Dog Arthritis & Heart Disease. Dear Dr. Carol, Here is a picture of my beautiful lhasa apso Samson. When he was 13 months old, I found him wandering loose with no collar in a park. He was skin and bones, covered with poop, and we later found out he had heartworm disease. We almost lost him to the heartworm, but 13 years later he is still here with me. He has recently been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and his arthritis, complicated by several attacks from a larger dog that injured his neck, has left him in daily pain. He takes so many pills I can barely get them all into him.
When he’s been lying down and stands up, he cries out in pain. Since I have started using PAAWS, I have been able to reduce his medications (and continue to do so) and as a result he has much more energy and barely ever cries out. I’m looking forward to seeing what further progress he makes as I continue with the product. I will soon start my 12 year old shi tzu on PAAWS vitamins too. I’m very pleased with the product and with the personal assistance Dr. Carol has provided me on multiple occasions.
