Two years ago our Golden Retriever, Mabel, was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma, an aggressive form of cancer found after the sudden rupture of a tumor in her spleen. After emergency surgery and several days in the ICU she was discharged with the devastating prognosis of only 3-6 months expected survival. We were so sad at the thought of her suffering any more and the idea of treating her with chemotherapy just didn’t feel right. I am so glad I trusted my instincts because a few days later I was referred to Dr. Eleanor Thompson by another Goldie owner whose own dog was treated successfully by Dr. Thompson using holistic practices. Dr. Thompson carefully reviewed Mabel’s case and worked with me to put in place a plan to treat Mabel with diet and the use of supplements, herbs and acupuncture. She was so encouraging, patient and generous with her time and knowledge as I learned about how to care for Mabel and implement the plan. She continues to be supportive, responsive and amazingly dedicated to Mabel’s continued good health and as a result Mabel is a two-year cancer survivor. She has not just survived however, she has thrived! Mabel is happy, healthy and has a tremendous quality of life. Our entire family is beyond grateful for what Dr. Thompson has done for us and Mabel.
