When he had his jaw broken (about a year before he began to see you), even though he’d healed very well indeed, better than my vets thought he would, he’d aged by about a year, he looked old and didn’t seem to be his old self at all.
He’d always come for a run with me, and he’d started to lag behind, I presumed it was because he’d aged, he was finding it hard to stay with me, especially towards the end of the run, he’d be well behind me, but he always wanted to come, he’d go all silly when he saw my get my gear on, and was so enthusiastic, that I couldn’t not take him so he did.
Another thing I’d noticed about 6 months after the accident, was that whenever he got off the sofa or stretched, his back end was very slightly wobbly, I thought the worst, that the kick to his head had affected his brain,and that he was losing the ability for his brain to send messages to his backend.
I took him to see my Vet, who took X-rays, as he found out he was stiff in his joints, so it was probably Arthritis, they all came back clear, so now I was extremely worried that it was his brain.
My Vet suggested that I take him to see Julia, and I cannot believe the change in him, after one session of Myotherapy, he trotted out of the room held his tail high,(which he hadn’t done for months),and hasn’t looked back since.
I was amazed at the way he responded after the first session, he was a different dog.
He has now regained the year he lost, plays like a 2 year old,and stays ahead of me on my runs, even at the end of them, he’s trotting along in front of me.
He’s the dog he was before the accident, and I’ll be forever grateful to Julia for all she’s done for my little Alfie.
We go for top-up treatments, as I want him to keep happy and healthy, it really is a miracle and Julia is an amazing girl, who has such a rapport with the dogs, she never puts pressure on them or forces them, if Alfie wants a wander than he can, all in all, it’s a nice relaxed time, with the most wonderful results.
Thankyou Julia,from Jenny and Alfie
