I wanted to create a healing sanctuary for her that was filled with positivity. Once I started down that road, there was no return! Before I knew it, my whole house was re-decorated according to Feng Shui practices.
I also decided to treat and manage her GOLPP holistically rather than surgically. I didn't feel she was far enough advanced in the disease to warrant surgery. We've had pretty good success, so I wanted to share the things I've done to help anyone else who may not be ready for surgery.
First and foremost... the MOST important thing you can do to help your dog is BE POSITIVE! Even if you get a tragic diagnosis, do not worry or get upset. Yes, it's normal to feel that way, but your dog can feel you. So whatever emotion you emit is what will guide your dog.
