Kristine’s Story about Emma

Gary Remes with Emma, April 2017

Update on Emma:
Emma was able to enjoy life for 2-1/2 more years, after almost being put down three times. She enjoyed her life till the last minute, active and playing outdoors. Kristine was happy to have Emma with her for an extra two and a half years. And now Kristine has a new dog named Riley, who I also work with – see Riley’s story coming soon!

Here’s Kristine’s story:

“In April 2017, my senior dog Emma fell on something and hurt her leg. She couldn’t walk at all, let alone back to the house. This happened in addition to her other already existing degenerative senior issues. At the time, I had a partially torn rotator cuff and bicep tendon and could not carry her. She was in serious pain and bad shape.

“Over the next couple of days, I both made and cancelled three appointments to have her euthanized. As a last ditch effort, I decided to bring her to Gary to see if he could help, since he has been such a lifesaver for my own medical issues.

“I had to have someone physically carry Emma to his office. The 1.5 hour visit was worth it. Emma LOVED Gary. He has the ability to aid and communicate with animals through touch on a level I cannot. Having him work on her gave me a ton of information about how she was feeling and where her worst pain points were. Seeing her gaze at him, and watching their non-verbal communication through body language, expressions, and touch gave me tremendous joy, as Emma understood he was trying to alleviate her pain. The visit was truly amazing.

“After the appointment, Emma walked out of his office on her own – and at a pace! She was extremely happy, and seeing the change in her mobility level was astonishing. It is now January 2018 and Emma is still with me – happy and having great mobility. We continue to visit Gary to keep her loose and moving.

“Although Gary’s focus is mainly on humans, I would highly recommend him to work on your dog as well. Having seen the outcome, and knowing how much I care for Emma, it was more than worth the money spent.

“Thanks, Gary!”
