Mike & Lesley B., Novato

Our 3 year-old rescued Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Lillie, has two subluxated patellas and three fused vertebrae. Given her young age, we wanted to be proactive with her care and also try a holistic approach using conservative management before surgery became our only option. Heather came along at just the right time. Her focused and hands-on approach has resulted in improvements in Lillie’s mobility. In addition, as responsible owners, we truly appreciate her extensive knowledge regarding dietary improvements and suggestions for alternatives to surgery. We completely changed Lillie’s diet (& the cats as well!) based on Heather’s recommendations and, as she said it would, Lillie’s chronic weeping eyes – a bane for all Cavaliers – disappeared within the week. Heather is now our trusted second medical opinion!
