Lilly’s Story is about Dog Paralysis & Recovery
- Timeframe: Jan. 16, 2007
- Breed: Lab/Walker-Hound Mix
- Issues: Paralysis, IVDD/DDD, Bladder Infection, Despondent
Lilly is the mixed-breed dog in the Video presented below, which is our first customer-provided recovery Video. Her story – of recovery from dog paralysis – is somewhat unique, especially considering that her ‘pet parent’ Shannon started the Video-tape (in those days of VCR tapes) before using any product! Lilly had been immobile (hind leg paralysis) for a week, during which time Shannon found NZYMES online and decided it was worth a try. Thanks to Shannon’s extra efforts, you can also LISTEN to Shannon discuss these matters verbally.
Upon arrival of products, she began recording the video before opening the shipment from NZYMES. This was obviously a remarkable act of faith; she was not disappointed. Please keep in mind that dogs know nothing about a “placebo effect”; they either feel better and become more capable, or they don’t. In Lilly’s case, she began to respond very quickly. This is not ‘always’ the case, considering a vast variety of possible causes of dog paralysis. As the Video opens, and Ms. Hersey begins, she remarks that “the Doctor’s diagnosis was Degenerative Disc Disease”, which essentially is the same as IVDD – or Intervertebral Disc Disease. Whichever name a Vet wants to label the issue, it’s all about the ‘discs’ between the Vertebrae degrading over time – and either collapsing on their own, or being easily subject to injury from certain motions or sudden jolts, like a fall.
Dog Paralysis Recovery is Possible with the Right Support
For problems like DDD, IVDD, or paralysis in general, we recommend either our Antioxidant Treats OR our Sprouted Granules. Due to Lilly’s size, the Granules were a better value and were ORDERED (a FREE bottle of the Treats was also delivered, as it was our standard practice back in those years). As the days progressed, you can see how her body was making the most of the “live-food” nutrition found in these supplements. This Video is a testament to the body’s own natural abilities to overcome such challenges posed by paralysis, regardless of the cause, when provided with the special resources delivered daily by the Treats or Granules. We cannot say that success (a return to acceptable mobility) will be seen in every case, but our history shows such success at least 90% of the time. While it is largely unknown how much progress the body could ever make to reverse actual degradation of DISCS, what we DO KNOW is that in an overwhelming majority of affected pets do respond positively, and become mobile, within early days or weeks (occasionally months) of getting started on our super-nutritional support (examples below). In the case of NZYMES, these products help to harness the body’s own Antioxidant Enzyme potential. Enzymes like Super-Oxide Dismutase, Catalase, Glutathione Peroxidase and others are front-line soldiers in these natural processes. They are produced by the body itself, but their production hinges in a large part on the diet. That is why introducing the Treats or Granules to the diet can have such a profound effect. What the body does with this nutritional support is what you are about to witness with the video.
