Dr Deva is at the top of her profession. She has been on the cutting edge of advance veteranarin medicine long before other Dr's even knew what natural medicine was. She is holistic through and through. Her recognition from the profession is very impressive. That speaks volumes! Dr Cathy, AP
It was a miracle Dr. Khalsa saved my Home Depot from FIP. It's been 1 1/2 years since she was cured and now my 15 year old cat sometimes acts like a kitten again. She also cured my cat Marmalade from cancer. He had a cancerous tumor in his mouth and with her help its gone. I will be forever grateful to her for saving my pets. I thank her everyday for the I have with them.
I've had Duncan for 9 years and adopted him when he was about 4. That means he would have been about 13 years-old when I found out that his kidneys were failing. He was drinking an awful lot of water and getting pickier about his food so I brought him right in for blood tests. I was told things were not good by my local veterinarian.
I think of Duncan as my soulmate cat and he's my constant companion. I was really upset, I didn't want to lose him.
A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Khalsa and told me she was the best. After sending all the blood tests and medical records to Dr. Khalsa, I had my consult.
Dr. Khalsa reviewed his records in detail and explained things to me so I really understood what was going on. I felt really comfortable working with her.
After one month of the prescribed Rx, I went in for a recheck blood test and Duncan's kidney enzymes were almost normal! Before this, they were two times higher than normal levels. On the next follow up test, Duncan's blood test was well within the normal range.
For the program; Dr. Khalsa had added some nutritional supplements to Duncan's diet and I put a transdermal creme on his ear- which he did not mind at all. Duncan also was given a homeopathic preparation to take twice a day.
Now, Duncan is eating well, playing and feeling awfully good. Dr. Khalsa told me to expect this improvement to last a long time. Needless to say, I am overjoyed.
My 4-year old Chocolate Lab had never been right. He'd had on and off bloody diarrhea along with itching and licking since he was the age of about 9 months. Morris had been to 5 different veterinarians, including an internist and a dermatologist. Diet and medication was changed many times but nothing was really working. Apoquel helped with the itching but his diarrhea stayed pretty much the same. Then I read the article Dr. Khalsa wrote for Dog's Naturally magazine on the web explaining how Apoquel really worked. After reading how Apoquel worked I wanted Morris off of that drug ASAP. I researched Dr. Khalsa and read many of her articles and contacted her for a consultation. After speaking to her, I felt I finally understood what was happening with Morris. Dr. Khalsa prescribed some homeopathic remedies and an herbal detox along with the Allergy Elimination 4 Pets program, which I did all at home. The program took less than 2 months and the results amazed me. After Morris had problems for over 75 % of his life, he was now a healthy dog who did not itch and had normal poops! It's been one year since she treated Morris and he is doing great. I just called Dr. Khalsa for a check-up consult just to go over what he really needs as far as vaccines and flea/tick prevention so that he stays healthy. Morris also had a mild ear infection and her advice cleared it up quickly and now I know exactly what to do if it ever happens again.
Our experience in working with Dr. Khalsa started with our Miniature Dachshund, Star, four years ago. Star was diagnosed with Lymphoma and had been given Chemotherapy for eight months. We were told by our Oncologist that Star would not go into remission and they had done all they could for her. I started looking for alternative treatments for Star’s Lymphoma and read an article in Dogs Naturally Magazine that Dr. Khalsa wrote regarding a Labrador Retriever that she treated for another disease. That article intrigued our family so I set up our first phone consultation with Dr. Khalsa. Star is thirteen years old now and we believe that Dr. Khalsa is primarily responsible for her prolonged life. Star plays fetch and acts like she is much younger than she is.
Since we had such great success with Star and Dr. Khalsa’s Holistic approach to her wellbeing, we have consulted with Dr. Khalsa regarding some of our other dogs, with similar positive results. Dr. Khalsa and our local vet work together through me using both Holistic and Western Veterinary medicine. My family trusts Dr. Khalsa to guide us through the best treatment for our dogs; recommending only the necessary test for a proper diagnosis and treatment using Holistic Remedies, Chinese herbs, and Western Medicine.
Dr. Khalsa’s perspective has changed the overall health of our dogs. We have also saved money by following her advice and not using unnecessary treatments, products, or tests on our family pets. More importantly, by using the healthiest alternatives to protect and treat our dogs, with Dr. Khalsa’s guidance, we feel that they have the best chance for healthy and happy lives.
