Here is Sid at approximately 39 lbs. He was quite inactive and diabetic requiring 2 injections of 6 units of insulin per day. Through a prescription weight loss diet and insulin, he lost approx. 8 lbs over 1 year, from 2013-2014.
Fast forward to 2015, when we realized that Sid had plateaued as no further weight had been lost. It was then we began to seek holistic care, thus discovering The Holistic Vet and Dr. Haghighat. It’s been about 6 months since our initial visit and we’re so grateful for the warm, loving care and suggested changes to his diet. During his visits at The Holistic Vet, Dr. Haghighat treated Sid with biopuncture (homeopathic injections) as well as acupuncture and an oral homeopathic remedy for Sid to rebalance his system. We are so happy to report that Sid is now completely off of insulin and his weight is down to 21.6 lbs – almost half the size he once was! As a result of the changes, Sid has become very active, even learning to play. He’s incredibly loving and wants to be with us all the time.
He’s not big on standing still for the camera, but here is a glimpse at his progress in March 2016!
