As some of you may know, we have vets from all over the country who use MBRT for their patients. Here is an email we received from Dr. Lucas with Frankie's story.
Frankie, an 11 month old S/F was adopted from a shelter with a past history of hypertrophic osteodystrophy at 9 weeks of age and then severe anxiety that led to snapping at the toddlers in the home. Despite being adopted by a fear-free certified vet tech and seeing a behaviorist, Frankie was relegated to a separate bedroom in the home and put on gabapentin, fluoxetine and clonidine. When I adopted her at 5 months of age, I switched her from Science Diet to raw food and CBD and was able to wean her off the meds. Then about 3 weeks ago she developed an intense phobia of riding on the expressway (we were not in an accident, but maybe the construction noise?) She was distressed to the point of defecating in the car, too!
With Dr. Roman being the sole practitioner, for the time being we have decided
to mostly return to curbside. Very few exceptions will be made, on a case by case basis.
Recently, we have had more than a few people argue our mask policy.
This policy is put in place for the safety of our staff. We have a couple of staff
members who are immune-compromised. We take pride in the fact that we
provide a safe work environment for our staff. By not wearing a mask,
it makes some staff members feel unsafe. If our staff gets sick, we run the risk of
having to close our doors, making it impossible for us to service our clients and
their pets. We realize this may be inconvenient, but please keep in mind
the health and well-being of those around you.
We are here to help your pets. During your appointments, please keep the conversations about your pet's health and medical needs.

There are many natural alternatives that deter external parasites, like fleas and ticks, and are safe for your pet. We have an array of options at our clinic, including:
It’s important to routinely check your pets for ticks
Ticks can carry Lyme and other tick borne diseases. They are not always easy to spot, so during the peak of tick season it’s important to check your pets at least twice a day. Peak season is beginning now and lasts until late fall.
We are so excited to present Dr. Roman's peer reviewed article in the IVC Journal. Read on to learn how ozone therapy can treat infections in animals.

While novel to most of the conventional medical community, ozone therapy has been extensively researched, taught, and used clinically world-wide for over 30 years. Ozone therapy is uniquely applicable to pandemic conditions.
