Buddy's Story

If you have a pet, you'll know what it's like, they're like little kids.  Dogs are very much in the 'now' they live for the moment and connect to humans with their hearts.  My heart bled for Buddy as I watched him struggle with his leg he had obviously hurt jumping off of the sofa.  This is the story of Buddy's path through pain to peace.  How I recognised diet and nutrition (in particular Laminine), would provide the ingredients to get him back to health.


Vet Number 1 

She was a very pragmatic and matter-of-fact professional but, within five minutes of plonking Buddy's shivering body on the cold metal table and without asking me, she injected him with something.  

     "What was that?"  I asked, concerned.

     "It's for his bones," she said.  But she hadn't even examined him.  When I asked for a blood test before anything else was done, she said it didn't matter.

His Troubles Begin

Immediately after his injection, he got worse.  Though he wasn't limping anymore, he was most certainly crunched over every time he walked, and looked as though his stomach was in pain.  This normally healthy dog who ran everywhere, wouldn't even go out the front door.  So, I did an internet search to find another vet.  Very highly rated, very well recommended and was only 10 miles away.  Off we went.

 Vet Number 2

    Before I even let Buddy near her, I had a list of questions, for instance: 

     “What role does diet play?" and "Should I cook his food myself?” 

     I explained I’d watched a few YouTube videos that showed the contents of dog food tins and since there was no nutrition in them, it seemed logical to me that cooking the food myself would be a good start to get him back to health.  As I talked, I realised I had said the wrong thing.  In that moment, I thought she was going to throw us out. This vet claimed to be the best in the area.  "I know about dogs," she said and that the pills were guaranteed to stop his condition.  But she never told me what his condition was, except perhaps a tick bite which she couldn't guarantee.  She also said that he was an 'old dog' and that I should put him down, which she could do then and there.  

    What?

    Of course not.  She didn't even know what was wrong with him!

    Her next suggestion was to take him to the vet hospital.  She said their diagnosis would also probably be to put him down and she didn't want me to waste time, money and my dog's pain, so she could do it there and then.

     I looked down at Buddy's eyes pleading with me.  Money?  Over those eyes?  Time?  Over that 13 years we had together?  His pain?  She had given him some painkillers so wouldn't that be enough to tide him over until I found out what it was?  Let's face it, we don't put old people down just because they're old, so I couldn't see why we should do that to an animal who has been with us for over a decade.

     So, I drove 20 miles to a vet hospital.  They would have better equipment and have more in-depth knowledge.  I was convinced they would get to the route of the problem.  I would be able to get a blood test there too.


Vet Number 3 

She felt Buddy's body, ordered an x-ray, for which she plonked him (with no care for his pain) on his back on the metal table and began to shave his belly.  When, I was called back into the clinician's room with a petrified, trembling Buddy, she showed me the x-ray, pointed out some spots on his liver and said:  "He's old.  I can kill him now.  Or I can kill him on Monday.  It's up to you."  Tears in my eyes, a lump in my throat, I took the painkillers she offered, which she said would last 24 hours, and took him home.  

   

Meeting Joe Bodemann

     At this point, it may seem as though I have a 'downer' on vets.  I haven't.  I know the vast majority of vets do care.  They start off caring.  Then their workload gets so big that they feel overwhelmed and have to 'block themselves off'.  It's natural.  I have to do this as a psychotherapist so that I can conserve my energy to help more on the path to healing.  But, I've found that if a professional is willing to explore all options instead of just 'giving up' at the first hurdle, that displays empathy.

     Luckily, at the advice of a German friend, I did find in Vet Number 4 - one that did care.  One who exemplified all that I was looking for to help my faithful companion.  

     Joe Bodemann.  

     Joe is a big German man with a big heart.  He plays with tigers in his own fantastic zoo.  

     For one final time, I took a chance and drove Bud the 15 miles to see him.

     When he 'inspected' him, it was not in a cold clinical area, but in something akin to a large living room with lots of bottles on display.  He sat with Bud, allowing him to wander around freely.  He watched him for about 15 minutes.  Then scratched his head and stroked Bud in a friendly way.  He looked from behind his mane of wild blonde curls, and spoke to Bud in a kindly way.

     This was a man who cared.

     Before he did anything to Bud, he told me what he needed to do, then asked my permission to do it.

     The result was that Joe asked me to leave Bud with him.  For a week.

     Nervous, because of our previous experience, Joe took me and Bud on a walk around the pet hospital he had set-up in a separate building.  The room was a nice one.  Large, like a child's bedroom.  He would be in it on his own and other dogs would be easily visible through a child-glass door separating their rooms.  He could have his own bed, but would be free to sleep on the comfy sofas and look out the window whenever he wished.  And I would need to leave something of mine with him, so that he could smell me there.

     I took Bud home that night and prepared him for his 'hospital stay'.  He was there a week and I was able to visit whenever I wished.  And I did.  Every day.  Unannounced.  I was free to come and go and visit him whenever I wished. With that reasurance, I left him in, what I instinctively knew, were capable hands.

Finally, after a week of visits, I took him home from Joe Bodemann's hospital.  He was a different dog.  More lucid in his movements, more awake in his eyes, lless pain.  Joe told me to keep up with the vitamin tablets until they were finished, and to change his diet.  

     Joe, the lion-man, had saved my Bud.

At first, the road was an uneasy one.  I had to learn what was good for a dog like Bud to eat.  Raw meat would be too acidic and organ meats too strong.  So, I kept with turkey and chicken breast, beef and lamb.  I could give him garlic, but not onion.  I could give him brocoli, but not sprouts.  Carrots had to be boiled until his stomach was able to cope with the texture again.  I fried nothing.  All of it was boiled, blended and frozen.  I couldn't give him rice, because dogs don't eat rice in the wild.  But I could bake some rice and carrot biscuits, which he gobbled up.  Better, and more nutritious, than Smackos any day!

     I was also able to give him additional nutrients in the form of Laminine.  I had been taking it myself for over year to help with my own lack of nutrients and depression after a painful break-up and, as my own body, mind and emotions had become more balanced as a result of it, I knew it could be given to animals (horses, cats, dogs - even lions and tigers come to that!) so I thought Buddy might benefit from it 

     After a few days of mixing the Laminine in with his food, he perked up and became more alert, responsive and eager to get involved in life.  Naturally skeptical, I decided not to give him it for a week, just to see if it really made a difference.   After a couple of days, I most certainly noticed a difference.  He was less interested in sniffing and less inquisitive with his surroundings, preferring to lay down even when he heard a cat outside (which was unlike him!).  He whimpered, laboured in his breathing and was disinterested in playing or even going outside.  As soon as I returned it to his diet again, after a couple of days, he would go back to being the happy Bud I knew.

  

  

     To be able to question, is a valuable trait.  Starting along this path with a sick animal who I cared about very much, was frightening, expensive (over £3,000), frustrating and made me feel weak and vulnerable.  

     Being the spiritual person I am, I can look back over this adventure with my best pal as a challenge that we overcame.  Through this painful exercise, I was forced to learn a lot, very quickly.  I trust that Buddy's story and what this site is able to offer you, is of value.  If you decide to try the Laminine, I would love to hear your story of success.

It is a requirement for me to advise you to go to your vet if your dog, cat or horse is ill.  

However, please don't give up on them upon the first piece of advice you get.  They love you and wouldn't give up on you, but their lives are literally in your hands.  They need you to try every option for them.  

Laminine is one option.  Given my experience and Bud's experience with it, I can't recommend it enough.  

It's a great back-up to good nutritious food and, if you do have to rely on tins or dried food for your pet, then it's a good balancer.

Sign-up with me and you'll get Laminine at a wholesele price.  You don't need to order anymore if you don't think it's as effective as I say it is.
