We took our best friend Trouble, a 16-year-old Cockapoo, to see Dr. Carol in late August 2019. At that time, he suffered from pneumonia on and off for a year. His coughing was a huge issue. He was getting more ill by the day and we knew we were close to losing him. He was bed-ridden, had to be carried everywhere, and was no longer mentally engaged. He was giving up. After some research, I found Dr. Carol Osborne, who combines the best of all medicine, in an integrated approach, tailored to each client. I reached out to the office to see if we could do a consultation, expecting to have to wait six months. Sam called me right away and was able to get us in to see Dr. Carol within a few days!

We were asked to bring our records, food, and medication with us. Trouble had two types of bacterial infection in his lungs. Too tough for a general antibiotic to remove.

Over a period of six months, Dr. Carol worked with us to change his diet and supplements (including her own patented ones which are amazing!). She used a conservative and incremental approach. He also developed seizures during the decline. It was terrifying! She (and Sam) spent countless hours outside of our visits researching ways to help Trouble overcome his illness. She reached out for additional consults from specialists all over. She works tirelessly for her clients; she even said she had dreams about him. There were ups and downs along the way, as he was quite ill. Dr. Carol took a kind, loving, and calm approach to help us manage the situation confidently. She had us document all of Trouble’s coughs, behavior, food/supplement schedule, seizures (every detail), poo, and more. Each evening, we sent an update and each morning, she replied with advice and encouragement.

Over time, we added a couple injectable supplements to his visits for fluid. At six months, Trouble is nearly himself again! He is walking around with attitude, telling us exactly what he wants and when he wants it. He loves to hide his bone and give lots of kisses again. Our little boy is back! We could not have done it without the love, encouragement, and true partnership of Dr. Carol and the team. We have our boy and will be grateful for every single day they gave us!

Trouble, a 16-year-old Cockapoo,

Dr. Carol is wonderful! What she has done for our sheltie Nico is absolutely amazing! She is very patient, explains everything she does, and answers every question. Dr. Carol is genuine. She listened to my concerns and from the very first visit, I knew immediately that she would do everything she could to help Nico. Prior to seeing Dr. Carol, Nico had been limping for more than a year and a half. His vet treated him for arthritis by giving him medication for pain and for inflammation. Unfortunately, there was no change. We tried different amounts and changed the frequency of the medications, but still no improvement. Being told that Nico seemed to be aging quickly and to limit his activity etc…It left us feeling hopeless, not knowing what else we could do for Nico. We wanted to find someone who would be able to make him comfortable, and if possible, treat him with a natural, holistic approach, to give him a better quality of life. Nico had low energy, no longer playful, and spent most of the day lying down.

That’s when we found Dr. Carol. We live an hour away and the drive is well worth it. We would go to any lengths to have Dr. Carol take care of Nico! The supplements Dr. Carol has given Nico have definitely helped. He’s more energetic, and very playful with our other sheltie Roxy. We are so happy to say that we have our Nico back.
