Yogi, a scrappy Jack Russell terrier, has a pain in the neck and hasn't walked for weeks.
Nikita is a fifteen-year-old seal point Himalayan cat who has lost all interest in eating.
And then there's Angel, a curious cockatoo whose bacterial infections defy every antibiotic known to science.
Meet just a few of the remarkable, real-life characters in The Last Chance Dog, a collection of heartwarming, entertaining, and instructive tales as told by Donna Kelleher, one of the country's most esteemed holistic veterinarians. Here she recounts a series of complex and compelling cases, taking us through the intuitive art of diagnosing animals and curing them with safe, natural remedies -- such as acupuncture, herbal treatments, and chiropractic adjustments -- when conventional veterinary medicine has failed. In The Last Chance Dog, Kelleher offers advice on everything from vaccinations and pet-food shopping to affordable, easy-to-administer treatments for allergies, digestive problems, urinary tract infections, pain, hot spots, itchy skin, fear, and anxiety. Inspirational and nothing short of miraculous, the stories of ailing and recovering animals -- and the people who love them -- are as unforgettable as they are true.
