We have a puppy that has been having seizures since 2 1/2 months old. We went through several vets trying to find out what was wrong. The first few didn't explain anything and told us to put him down. We finally found one who got us a diagnosis: Meningoencephalitis and an auto-immune disorder that was explained to us as similar to Lupus in a human. After several vet visits, visits to a specialist, more medication than any living being should have in a lifetime and more than $12,000 later, we were referred to Dr.s Steve and Karen Marsden. We found them just in the knick of time. Our baby had suffered severe joint damage, stunted growth, internal bleeding resulting in a blood transfusion (in which he almost died)and other issues caused by all the harsh medications. Dr. Marsden cared about our boy and told us during the first meeting we had with him that he was going to get him off all the harsh medications and "introduce" us to our puppy. We didn't know anything about his personality because he was a drugged out, zombie of a puppy from 3 months to 9 months old. Dr. Marsden did what he said. He introduced us to our baby! He still has several issues and most likely will for the rest of his life (whatever time he may have), but at least he's now happy, playful and enjoying life. He's off of everything but the phenobarbitol (which he's being weaned off now) and is only taking herbs and homeopathic treatment. You wouldn't believe it's the same dog! I really can't thank them enough for all the loving care they have given to our baby, and us. You may pay a bit more, but it's worth every penny and then some. I would also like to say that the receptionists and support staff are the most loving, caring people we have dealt with in any clinic we have been to! Thank you Edmonton Holistic Vet clinic!!
