Dr. Shawn Messonnier, owner of Paws & Claws Holistic Pet Hospital, in Plano, is offering a new blood test for early kidney disease. It measures dimethylated arginine and allows diagnosis of kidney disorders up to two years prior to current blood tests, meaning pets can be treated with herbs and homeopathics long before kidney damage becomes severe and irreversible.
Also, a new holistic treatment is available for dogs with cancerous tumors that involves using the pet’s own cancer cells to make a “vaccine” which stimulates an immune response unique to the pet’s tumor. This treatment can replace chemotherapy and radiation for many pets, and is combined with herbs, homeopathics and autosanguis detoxification to get the maximum and long-lasting immune response. The new test and treatment integrate nicely into a holistic health care plan.
