A BIG shout out to Dr. Carol and her wonderful staff, especially Hallie. Our Golden is just over 13 yrs old, and developed a growth on his mouth/gums. I wish I would have found Dr. Carol years ago, but am so grateful for her compassion, holistic practice, and above and beyond customer service! The herbs/supplements she provided have helped tremendously, and she calls to make sure we understand the tests, and check on Kramer! We want him to be comfortable in his golden years with gentle healing…and she works with us and our beliefs. Highly recommend Dr. Carol!!


Dr.Carol, I just wanted to send thanks for all you guys have done at Chagrin Falls Pet Clinic! From fixing Daisy when I really thought she was not going to make it, to doing checkups on Orwell. I really appreciate everything you guys do. I cannot thank you enough, everyone is so wonderful there! It made me feel confident in the care my animals receive there, ever since the first time I brought in Daisy. That day was by far was one of the scariest and you guys made me feel better by the time I was leaving. Thank you again and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

We searched on line to find an intigrative veterinarian to treat one of our cats who was suffering complications from diabetes. His skin had become so severely infected that we knew time was running out for him. Our vet did not know what to do for him anymore. We were so fortunate to find Dr. Carol an hour from our home. Spuds improvement was remarkable. Dr. Carol treated him very aggressively, and within a few months, his skin is cleared up, his diabetes is under control, and we have our happy kitty back. We have since taken another one of our cats who has an ongoing autoimmune disorder, and one of our dogs that suffered a disc injury. We have experienced fantastic results with them as well. We would give 10 stars if we could. Dr. Carol and Halle are the best.

About 3 months ago, my dog, Burner, and I met Dr. Carol. I had been considering surgery for my dog’s ACL (knee) problem and, just couldn’t subject him to all that it would entail. He’d already been in a knee brace for a month. So, I set out, on the internet, to find a solution. I was looking for a little hope. That’s when I started seeing all kinds of references to Dr. Carol. It appeared this Vet had some interesting ways of dealing with all kinds of pet related medical & whole life issues. And, she was just a car ride away. So, I packed up the boy and set out in search of that hope. The hope that he would have a somewhat normal life, that he would walk, play with his friends, visit his Gramma, enjoy his ball game, just be himself. He had been miserable since June, since the “incident” that lamed him. Upon our arrival, Dr. Carol & Halley got right down to business. They gated him and examined him thoroughly and Dr. assessed his condition. After awhile (seemed like forever) she said “we can help him”. Hope bloomed right in front of me. She had me put him on a special diet, to which we will always adhere, and she sent us home with supplements and holistic oil, for swelling (no more Rimadyl or Deramaxx, EVER!!!). She showed me some different massage techniques and, specific instructions on what the next month of his life would be like (first month of 3).

My gratitude for restoring my boy, Burner, to his happy, playful self and, giving Rayne her youth back! I’ve NEVER seen anything like these two. After the method that you had me employ, it only took 3 months for the boy to get sound on his knee. He can play in his yard, again. And, the gray that covered the girl’s muzzle, has been banished by her beautiful black!!! I feel empowered with the knowledge that you gave me, to help them live their best lives in the long run. But, most of all Dr. Carol, I want to thank you for restoring my hope.

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate? Which ones are necessary? How often should they be given? When I received my annual list of vaccinations from my traditional vet for my baby boy Jackson (2yr old Doxie mix) I knew I needed to reach out to ask for help in understanding which vaccinations were right for us. Today, I saw Dr.Carol Osbourne. Dr. Carol took the time to explain each of the vaccinations, the value of each based on my pets lifestyle, the difference between 1yr vaccinations vs new 3yr (or longer) vaccinations, the value of titer testing, and which vaccinations could cause dangerous side effects. This was just what I was looking for! I feel confident in my decision for the vaccinations that I chose. Thank you Dr Carol!

I took my put bull mix rescue dog to Dr. Carol for a recurring rash outbreak on her chest which barely had any hair on it and was always reddened. My traditional vet treated her repeatedly with antibiotics and steroid injections. It never seemed to completely go away. I finally got “desperate” and searched for a veterinarian with a different philosophy. Ella got a thorough and unhurried examination by Dr Carol and one of the first questions she asked me was “What are you feeding her”? I thought I had her on a good quality, grain free food. But Dr Carol encouraged me to try a raw diet. I was reluctant at first; Ella is a picky eater, and it was more expensive. But she was invited to sample the food right there in the office, and she gobbled it up! Next we had instructions to bathe her with specific ingredients one time, and we started her on vitamins. Well, what a difference these changes have made. It’s been just over six months and she looks like a different dog- one with beautiful white hair on her chest and the problem has not recurred once. And she is no longer picky! She loves the SOJOS food and all the vegetables she gets as added “treats”. I am so glad I found Dr. Carol; I really appreciate her natural and sensible approach to canine health and how she is available if I have questions. It’s nice to once again have confidence in my dogs health care provider!

Arwen and Aragorn, It is hard to believe that this video shows our 10 year old female German shepherd, Arwen who has been given back the energy and health she enjoyed as a puppy. As you can see, she is running with the same fluid and joyful demeanor of a much younger dog and this is the direct result of the work of Dr. CarolOsborne and her daughter Halle at the Chagrin Falls Vet Clinic. When we first took our two German Shepherds to her, we had tried a number of conventional vets and while there was nothing apparently wrong with Arwen and conventional vets gave her a clean bill of health, it was obvious to us that she was no longer able to easily jump in and out of our car, jump on our bed or bound effortlessly up and down stairs and she tired noticeably on long walks. She had trouble sleeping through the night and was restless and easily alarmed.


Arwen had always been fa
irly trim for a large dog, normally weighing about 85 pounds which the vets told us was just fine. She had gained weight due in part to being less active and was 90 pounds when we first took her to see Dr. Carol. After a thorough examination and blood work, Dr.Carol amazed us by saying that if we gave her 6 months, we would have a new dog! By changing Arwen’s diet and adding daily supplements to help balance her metabolism, the Arwen today that you see in the video is a happy, active, healthy 71 pounds and able to run and jump at will. She sleeps much better and is not restless or easily agitated and just much more pleasant to have around. I should mention that all this took far less than 6 months.

Hard to believe but the evidence is clear. We actually took Aragorn, our twelve year old male German shepherd, Arwen’s half-brother to Dr. Carol first as he was really struggling with the mobility in his hind quarters and we had been given various potential diagnosis’ for his condition, ranging from hip dysplasia and arthritis to degenerative neuropathy. While it was evident that something was seriously wrong with Aragorn, following the same plan of adjusting his diet and adding supplements, Aragorn’s quality of life showed a dramatic positive increase.

Aragorn was always significantly larger than Arwen, normally weighing just over 100lbs and had recently started to hit 105lbs. As Dr. Carol balanced him out, his weight dropped to 87lbs, and his ability to walk and even run, go up and down stairs and get in and out of the car returned in proportion to his weight loss. Unfortunately, it was discovered by Dr. Carol that the cause of all this was due to a fast growing tumor which conventional vets completely missed. Dr. Carol and her daughter Halle were very kind and helped us with the decision to allow Aragorn to pass on in the same manner as he had lived his life. German Shepherds are a warrior breed, with an innate desire to serve their pack and suffer greatly when unable to do so.


Through their efforts, Aragorn was able to enjoy a new quality of life for his remaining time with us and when the time came, he passed peacefully. Regardless of what type of dog you have or what age they are, we encourage you to invest in their future health and well-being by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Carol at the clinic as soon as possible, like us, you will amazed and thrilled with the results and your dog will thank you. Best regards, Bill and Janet Kilcullen

My name is Billy Bower. I had been going to a regular veterinarian all my life. I was very scratchy , itchy and could not lose weight. They could not figure out what was wrong with me. Finally my sister Vicky took me to see Dr. Carol Osborne, she diagnosed me with Hypothyroidism and put me on Thyroid Medication, a special diet & her special vitamins and I am already feeling better. It has only been a week and I have lost one pound and are feeling much better and looking forward to my full recovery!

Billy Bower

Dr. Carol is extremely helpful, patient and kind. She is thorough, detailed, focused and she really understands animals. Her holistic approach is very well balanced. She is passionate about her work and her love of animals is very apparent. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer all of my friends and family to her practice. Your furry friends will be in the best of hands! Thank you Dr. Carol Love, Praise and Herbie the Dachshund

Our two four legged kids, Sassy and Bentley have a new lease on life thanks to Dr. Carol. The change was noticeable within only 2 weeks of our initial visit. Our pups didn’t appear over weight to us, just a little “thick” but Dr. Carol clearly let us know that bringing them both to a healthier weight would do wonders for both of them.

Our older guy, Bentley is 9 years old and was starting to have some dementia type symptoms. He was standing and just staring off into space and would go out and tinkle on the driveway rather than go to the grass, he just wasn’t our same vibrant and playful boy – he seemed distant and sad. Bentley weighed around 100 pounds at our initial visit and is now a healthy 87 pounds. Dr. Carol had us change his diet (I felt horrible as I thought the raw diet and grain free kibble we were feeding were quality, I was so wrong).

Their coats should have been an indicator now that I think about it. They were always getting dander shortly after bathing them, which I did regularly. Now that we are feeding a true healthy diet and one that accommodates each dog: Sassy was having some stomach upset on raw so we feed her cooked chicken and Bentley remains on the raw Stella and Chewy’s along with added veggies and in addition to Dr. Carol’s Health and Wellness AM and PM Complex. They now have mental clarity, their coats are clean and dander free and they are SO soft! In fact our family couldn’t stop commenting on how silky Bentley felt when they were petting him this past Christmas Eve. I shared with them our story and they got to see what we are feeding them when it came to the dog’s dinner time – they were amazed! And this is the first time ever, that Sassy has a waist! She has lost around 8 pounds. Having a pet with a healthy weight, just like us, makes such a difference.

Dr. Carol and Halle, her daughter and wonderful assistant, make you feel welcome and are always happy to answer your questions when you are at the office. Dr. Carol will also call to follow up and see how things are going at home and will answer any questions you have. I am very proactive in our dog’s health and wellness – kind of a passion of mine and Dr. Carol has never made me feel like I am overstepping my boundaries with my questions or concerns. In fact she actually works with me and has made me feel more a part of our pups “wellness team” which is such a blessing to me. I don’t want to leave out this very important part: Bentley started having some issues with increased water consumption and with that he became a frequent flyer to having to go out every other hour. This made for some very rough nights. But yet, he kept testing negative for a urinary tract infection and his blood work came back perfect too. Dr. Carol went above and beyond to look into all the possibilities of why this was happening and did in fact find the problem. She is a stone turner and we are so blessed to have her in our back yard!

Thank you Dr Carol for all you do for us and our pets – we know we are always in the best of hands. Mary Z. Streetsboro, OH

Dr. Carol has been a God send to me and Mandy, my 12-year-old Rat Terrier. A year ago, Mandy was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and protein losing protein losing nephropathy (PLN). I consulted with several vets to see what we could do for Mandy. Everyone told me the same thing: It’s a progressive disease. There’s nothing we can do to cure it. Put her on a low-protein diet and treat her symptoms.

Then, Hallelujah, I found Dr. Carol. She’s the only vet who gave me hope that Mandy could be stabilized and perhaps Mandy could live several more years with me. She’s the only one who said, “Mandy can get better.” Dr. Carol took great interest in Mandy, her condition, and finding ways to overcome her nausea, her loss of appetite, and numerous other symptoms. She combined conventional medicine with non-mainstream medicine. She checked with me regularly to see how Mandy was doing. (How many vets do that?)

After a few months with Dr. Carol, Mandy is now better. No more vomiting. Improved appetite. Good energy. And Mandy’s BUN and creatinine numbers have come way down. Thank you, Dr. Carol. You are one in a million. If it weren’t for you, I don’t know if Mandy would still be alive today. Your fan and grateful forever, Kay Van Hoesen

Dr. Carol has done an amazing job with both of my dogs! She’s caring, compassionate and “all about the animals”. If you expect the type of vet that gives a shot and sends you on your way, this isn’t the place for you or your pet. She spends a lot of time with the animals and educates you about what she’s doing and why; how you can better take care of your pet. She is very open and experienced in alternative medicine and her follow-up phone calls for even a routine exam were a pleasant surprise. I am very impressed!

Carol G & her dogs Oz & Holly

Dr. Carol is fabulous! She is the most knowledgeable veterinarian I have ever been to. She saved my dog’s life after another vet incorrectly diagnosed his condition. Dr. Carol used her wealth of knowledge to correctly diagnose his condition and by using a combination of homeopathic and traditional medical practices returned him to the happy, healthy dog he always was. She is thorough, compassionate and caring. My dog knows he has a friend in Dr. Carol.

A Peke Pup, (of Purple Peke), and I met Dr Caro yesterday. She is an amazing, passionate person who takes time to explain things to you in a simple, straight forward way you can understand. She offers alternatives with no pressure in what decision you will ultimately make regarding the care for your pet. Dr Carol believes in natural care for pets and is very knowledgeable. Her book, Dr. Carol’s Naturally Healthy Dogs is a great read in easy to understand language. The Peke Pups have found their new medical advisor. If you are seeking alternatives to mainstream vet care, The Peke Pups and Mom recommend Dr Chagrin Falls Veterinary Center & Pet Clinic with Dr. Carol Osborne

Holly & Buki

Dr. Osborne treated my 13 week female American Eskimo puppy Indie Mo after she was severely mauled and repeatedly bitten by another dog. She stitched her up and treated her wounds and prescribed a diet to help heal her wounds and injuries which resulted in a full recovery. Now she is Indie Mo’s permanent vet. you couldn’t find a more compassionate or knowledgeable vet on the planet in my opinion.

Barry & his dog Indie Mo!!

I have a 7 yo. dachshund who IS part of our family, just like your beloved pets. We try to provide the best health care for him and promptly attend to any problems he may encounter. He has had ongoing skin issues for about 5 years, itching, infections etc. I have had him to 4 vet clinics up to this summer without any solutions. One even told me that dachshunds just itch and get infections, and to just live with it! My neighbor told me about Dr. Carol Osborne and her Chagrin Falls Veterinary Center. I called and made an appointment for Rusty. She assessed him and asked many questions about his food, his meds etc and what type care he had received in the past. After testing it was discovered he had Cushings Disease, which is not uncommon for dogs in the 6 to 8 year range. She changed his heartworm meds from the brand most advertised in most vet offices and also the most expensive to a simple liquid I put on his skin once a month. I picked up some Paaws vitamins from her and began feeding him a food she sold in her clinic; however took her advice and cook chicken and vegetables for him. I cook once every 10 days to 2 weeks in the crock pot and freeze his food then parcel it out for him at mealtime. If I am in a hurry, then he gets the dry bag food. He loves the food and is eating 2 to 3 times what he was before and is Loosing weight, which was one of his issues. I give him his meds for the Cushings plus his vitamins and you can NOT believe the change in this dog. Recently I took him in for an ear infection, which he seldom ever gets. She treated him right away. The next day she called to check up on him. This is something she does a lot. This vet REALLY CARES about your pet. I will never take him anywhere else. Dr. Osborne has been a Godsend to us and as for Rusty, well, he is a brand new dog. His fur is smooth like rabbit fur, his yeast infections are gone, he’s loosing weight and his skin is clearing up and he rarely itches himself anymore. I challenge you to find a better, more caring veterinarian anywhere. I seriously do not think you will find one. Thank you Dr. Carol !!!

Daniel Brown & Rusty


I started Shana on your product on October first and have truly noticed improvements. When we spoke on the phone back then you suggested an automatic reorder program. How does that work?

Thank you for your assistance.



I had Amos neutered last November and he’s put on pounds ever since, despite less feed. I had him on NSAIDs for pain relief and all he would do then is sleep. I started him on your products, cut back on the NSAIDs and Amos is now on the move. On our two short walks daily, he’ll sniff around and stuff while I go on ahead. Then he RUNS to catch up with me. He runs on ahead, voluntarily! Hopefully, he can lose enough weight to eliminate the NSAIDs altogether. I’m tempted to try your product myself, but I’m no liver lover. Amos, however, will almost start drooling when I shake the bottle.




I am not sure if you remember me, my name is Linda and we talked previously about my dog Bayer who has Addisons Disease. We have been using your vitamins for the past several weeks and it seems that Bayer’s spirits are up and he is a bit calmer in the evening. However, his back end is still quite weak. Do you have any other suggestions that would help increase his strength? Our vet has reduced Bayer’s Prednisone down to twice a week, because of the weight he has put on.


Heidi & Schatzie

I agree wholeheartedly with the testimonials. YOUR product is a truly beneficial product for any owner of a pet that they think the world of and want their pet to have a happy lengthily life for as long as possible. Yes, the dog on my e-mail message is cute and I wouldn’t mind having another pet, however she was not one of my girls. Unfortunately they did not have any schnauzers that I could use. I have two schnauzers: Heidi, (Black) and Schatzie (Salt & Pepper). They’re our little girls and we want them around and in good health for as long as possible. Schatzie is diabetic and before taking your supplement her appetite was not so good. Now she eats her food and then licks Heidi’s bowl. She’s just 17 pounds- just a little thing.

P.S. While we were out East visiting our daughter, my husband spread the PAAWS-VITALIFE word to any and all dog owners we met. Give them your card and told them that your product is terrific and that they should think of trying the product.

Carol and Fred


I just wanted you to know that I giving my dog Toby the PAAWS-Vitalife AM/PM formula with a little peanut butter and he is now “gobbling” it up! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that earlier!!! He has been on the full dosage of the AM/PM for -4 days now and I really think he feels better. He has more energy and his Appetite has improved tremendously. I’ll wait for a few more weeks to make sure, after that, if I still feel is has improved, I will let you know. Thanks again for following up with the phone call last week. I appreciate your concern.



I am sending you an update on how PAAWS-Vitalife has helped our dog, Chica. This dog does have Cushings, as well as thyroid problems. Her undercoat is about all the hair she has… and her back legs cannot jump up the way they once did. He is able to go up and down steps, and I am sure that is thanks to your tablets… I have discontinued Derma and am using Vitalife instead. My dog is better with it than without but considering she has Cushings I think she is doing the best she can.

Thank you for your explanation on the AM/PM… Our Chica has been taking PAAWS-Vitalife for some time now. It has enabled her to keep climbing stairs and basically keep walking around! She has plenty of zest for life, and lots of enthusiasm, thanks to PAAWS-Vitalife.



Thank you Dr. Carol. I received my order of PAAWS-Vitalife today in the mail. Rachel is such a finicky eater. I have to boil chicken for her and grind it. She eats it sparingly. I discovered that anything in larger chunks will not digest. Ground food will. But, it has to taste good, too. We discovered an ulcer 2 months ago. She was very ill then and almost died. Last fall she had pancreatitis, then 2 months ago she quit eating, began throwing up, having black, tarry stools, and we found the ulcer. Then a couple of weeks later, a huge dog came into our yard, picked her up and shook her violently. She was not hurt badly, but one of the dog’s teeth did sink into he upper back. It didn’t hit an organ or a bone. She was very sore for days. Now, this has happened.

Additionally, I found a story on the Internet about a dog that was in Rachel’s condition, except he’d been given 48 hours to live. Long story short, the vet asked the owners if they thought their tap water was poisonous turns out it had high salt content which contributed to shutting down the dog’s kidneys. They put the dog on distilled water, he Iived past the 48 hours and lived 4 years longer. I rushed to my vet’s office and gave them the information and they admitted never having thought of it. They ran an electrolyte test and said that they weren’t out of whack, but there were a couple of other tests that showed that it was possible, though not conclusive, that perhaps this could be a contributing factor to Rachel’s situation. We put her on distilled water and Vitalife

The vet said that her tests were slightly better than before–not to get too excited, but they weren’t at all worse, and they were a tad better. The day before he had told me that it was almost hopeless. So, we decided to give her distilled water and Vitalife from now on just in case.

Thank you so much. I’ll keep you posted. If you have any other ideas don’t hesitate to advise me. Rachel is the most important thing in my life. I love her so much. She has been my constant companion for 11 years, and it’s absolutely killing me to see this happening to her.



Thanks Dr. Carol…You and your PAAWS-VitaLife product are awesome!!!! My dog Jagger is 14 years old now and somebody just asked me if he was a puppy!!! I just had to write to tell you that!



Update on my dog Walker:

We have decreased Walker to ½ the dose of Rimadyl (only 1 pill in the am and none in pm) for 7 days and he is doing fine. In fact, there seems to be an increase in his “puppy like” activity. He’s a little more frisky, wants to play more; he can get up from lying down just fine, and runs with ease.




Our dog Earl is not just a family pet, he is a family member. Earl is ten years old. Over the past few years has suffered from terrible allergies and has become increasingly sluggish. After talking to you, we realized the importance of adding high quality vitamins to his diet. However, because of his many allergies, I was hesitant about placing an order until I knew exactly what was in the vitalife formula. I called and left you a voice-mail describing my questions and concerns. I never expected that it would actually be you who would call me back. We had a great conversation and your knowledge of, and concern for, animals really impressed me! That combined with our assurance that the formula contained no poultry or rice convinced me to place an order. We noticed a difference in Earl after the first week. He has been taking PAAWS-VitaLife for one month now, and we’ve noticed great improvement. He exhibits more energy on his morning walks and at playtime. This is the first summer in about four years that he has not had to go for monthly allergy shots.

Earl is a very satisfied customer… so are we!

Thank you

My name is Debbie and I have been using your product for my 7 year old Vizsla, Janie. I just wanted to let you know, she is doing very well. We have been walking 2.5 miles every night and both she and my younger dog are really enjoying it!

Thanks so much



I have 2 Shih Tzu’s, 10 1/2 years old,and ordered your PAAWS-Vitalife AM / PM Wellness System, hoping to help my Shih Tzu that has Cushing’s Disease. I really was skeptical, but decided to try it. Well Dr. Carol, I am so glad I did, because I cannot believe the turn around in this dog. She is so frisky, even in the evening, and has more energy than the other dog. She also had flaky, dry skin, and now that has cleared up. So I have decided to put my second dog on this regiment. I really believe in your product and I know my second dog will benefit also.

The only other comment I have is to say “Thank You.”



My cat Dusty is now 21 years old and has been on your product for 2 years. He is doing wonderfully on your PAAWS-Vitalife product.

Thank you



Thank you for returning my call. “Winky” my cat is a twelve year old tabby. A picture of her is attached. We adopted her as a stray years ago and she had been injured. She lost her eye as a result of that injury, but has been healthy otherwise. She breaks out in hotspots once as year, and I wanted to try a vitamin/mineral supplement that mighty ease here comfort or prevent it totally. As you know I just placed my second order for Vitalife “Winky” is playful and energetic her hotspots have cleared up and she is happy.

Thank you Dr. Carol
