Due to legal limitations, we are unable to diagnose or provide recommendations about a pet without an exam; therefore, phone consults are limited to veterinarians only. You can find a holistic veterinarian near you on the AHVMA.ORG. Dr. Roman can work with them on any of their patient cases.
MASH receives a number of requests to consult on SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome) cases. Though MASH has had success improving the health of SARDS patients, MASH has not success reversed the the disease. Our focus is building the immune system and our hope is that we someday find a way to catch the condition before it happens.
If your pet has been diagnosed with SARDS, try and find a veterinarian who is willing to look outside the box. AHVMA.ORG has a list of integrative veterinarians in your area that will focus on the alternative therapies to strengthen your pet's immune system and improve their health. Dr. Roman can be scheduled to consult with you or your veterinarian on your pet's case, but without a physical exam, no specific recommendations can be provided.
Plechner’s website offers a full explanation about adrenal medulla deficiency. With this immune endocrine imbalance, the IGA, IgG, and IgM all are weak. This weakness reduces the gut’s ability to absorb nutrients. According to Dr. Plechner, if the IGA is below fifty-eight, then animals cannot absorb their nutrients efficiently. And with the lack of an ability to take in the correct balance of nutrients, the animal’s ability to stay healthy is reduced. Over many months or years, the immune system progressively becomes more compromised. By balancing the gut with the right nutrients, MBRT, and giving the patient the added thyroid and/or adrenal support it needs, the immunoglobulins will become more normal and absorption of nutrients can occur. The laboratory evaluation for Plechner Syndrome can be done at Veterinary Diagnostic Services in Texas, and will give your practitioner the values.
