TC has already received 3 acupuncture sessions and is responding well
Read about Orange Boy who made a miraculous recovery after only 4 sessions of acupuncture: http://meowies.multiply.com/tag/orange-boy
Penny took in a sick cat several weeks ago. It’s a young tabby (male) called Nick. According to Penny his backside is always wet. sometimes he can’t urinate (he was hospitalized and catheterized before). He goes to the litter-box but sometimes the urine just flows out. What is hard on Penny is cleaning the poo very frequently. He has no control.
One day about a week ago, Penny asked for advise suspecting blockage. We met and the bladder was easily emptied (no blockage)… however his breathing was not normal so we still brought him to the vet.
He was hospitalized one day for observation and the vet suspected FIP. I had been telling Penny to go for acupuncture if it is a spinal cord – nerve injury…but of course with FIP there is no hope.
Today Penny called to say “What if the vet is wrong? I want to give this boy another chance. He is eating well and is lively…running about”
Penny went to see the vet at Mt. Pleasant Hospital for consultation before being referred to Dr. Oh. The vet said there were no FIP symptoms… most likely to be a spinal cord injury at the lower back (he felt a gap), probably due to a fall from height.
So far so good… but unlike my Orange Boy this cat was totally uncooperative… he escaped, pulled out the needles… Dr. Oh tried 3 times then gave up… prescribing Chinese medicine instead.
Not much hope of recovery for Panda… his urine is still dark brown.
I have just totaled up all of Orange Boy’s medical bills.
4 consultations, 1 x-ray, 1 catheterization, various medications, 12 bladder expressions and 4 acupuncture sessions came up to a total of $924,-
The whole amount has been covered by sponsorship! My very kind neighbour M. has paid for almost half of the expenses, then there was J.M. who kindly sponsored twice, the $168.- surplus from Boy Boy’s account were transfered into OB’s account, and sponsorship was also received from CWS and W.K. The total amount of sponsorship was $1.074,-. The $150,-surplus will be used for follow up treatment, if needed.
A big Thank You to all who helped Orange Boy and especially to Dr. Oh whose acupuncture sessions worked such a miracle!
Dr. Oh will be away for a month. He advised me to put a heat pack on his lower back twice a day for 20mins and I will also continue using the electro-magnetic devise. Orange Boy was also checked by the vet today as his tummy was quite bloated…. The vet couldn’t find the cause of it and dewormed him…just in case.
He was not very cooperative during the acupuncture session today…growled a lot.
Well, he is peeing on his own now and it is clearly the result of the acupuncture treatment. His hind legs are also no longer weak and he can now jump onto chairs and tables. Dr. Oh is also confident that he will regain the control of his bowels in time.
