[This is a case from a client of Dr. Vani Guttikonda of Los Alamitos]
Here is my story with my fifteen pound, 12 year old dog that was diagnosed 5 years ago with a tumor in her mouth that City of Angels radiated at that time. She suffered through the daily procedure so much so it burned her mouth and swallowing was a problem. They insisted it had to be done for a month no matter what and it would have a positive outcome. I did not think there was any other choice so I did it. The tumor did go away.
They assured me it would be good for 5 years but it came back in 3 years since it was aggressive, they radiated again, it came back LARGER in about 18 months. They told me there was no way they could radiate again so they would need to take her lower jaw off. They thought the operation may not work because the skin was damaged from radiation so they thought it was a high chance for infection and the sutures may not last. I was deeply distressed since they wanted to put her through this agony that may be in vain.
Pitcairn: I have added in the pictures and comments in this letter from the client, Teri Bernardi, so you can see how dramatic this was. My comments are colored blue.
Here is the tumor returning on 11/18/16.
By 12/7/16 it is obviously growing aggressively.
And just 10 days later, bigger yet!
On January 5, 2017 one sees this and wonders how this poor dog could eat!
I thought my only choice after getting a second opinion was to euthanize her which was breaking my heart. Dr. Rachel Jones another vet found out about what I was going through and suggested Dr Vani. I remember thinking it was ridiculous that homeopathy could help her as seriouslly ill that my dog was but I was desperate. I went to Dr Vani and the more she spoke, the more I knew this doctor was dedicated to saving her life. I wasn’t sold yet, but I liked Dr Vani’s commitment that I signed on thinking I would get a few extra months and I would be better prepared to let my pet go. Well, a miracle happened, the first few months my dog slept mostly with this large tumor hanging out of her mouth that people thought was her tongue, that was the size.
I have pictures that Dr Vani took that is the proof, well it’s been over 7 months and my dog is completely cured and happier than last few years. She is completely back, her energy, her personality, she has lost 5 teeth but THAT IS IT. She has her jaw, the tumor is gone, I am a TRUE BELIEVER now in this therapy and would choose this care over any other. I am indebted to her and want everyone to know about this for their pets. It is real!
Here is a picture showing the tumor regressing under homeopathic treatment. This was taken on March 7, 2017.
As the treatment continued, the tumor went away. This picture shows how it looks on May 5, 2017. You will see it is not a pretty mouth in the sense that several teeth are now gone but this is the outcome of the radiation that was done twice. I think it fair to say that if the homeopathic treatment had been done instead of radiation the mouth would have retained a much better look.
However the dog is free of the tumor and also of discomfort. A modern miracle!
And with more time this dead looking area of the teeth remnants from the radiation treatment – even this has healed very significantly. See how in the next picture the grayish area has now become a more normal flesh color. This picture from July 14, 2017.
As a side note I spent $15,000 for the two radiations and they wanted $8000 to take her jaw off.
