Dr. Khalsa's profound wisdom and expert, intuitive care healed my sweet terrier Brady who was screaming in pain from slipped discs. We had been traumatized from a harrowing, extremely expensive and ultimately unnecessary path with an emergency vet/neurologist. Dr. Khalsa so quickly and efficiently informed and reassured me with some simple recommendations and Brady is enjoying a spectacular recovery. I can't imagine what we would've done if we hadn't found Dr. Khalsa. We're both healing thanks to her incredible care. I can never express the depth of my gratitude!
My boy Scarecrow is a 11 yr old Shih tzu. We have been dealing with allergies for many years. We have tried steriods, antibiotics, different types of foods nothing seemed to really make him better.
About 7 years ago, after doing my own research with allergies I decided to stop vaccinating and try natural remedies instead, I gave him immune support supplements he slowly started to get better but it was not enough to stop me for looking for better remedies for his condition. I knew, I needed to find someone who had the knowledge and experience to get his health and allergies under control. I scheduled a phone consult with Dr Khalsa, we started allergy elimination for pets and here we are today about half way through Scarecrow is scratching and licking less, his bald spots are growing hair back, he has packed on some weight, more active and happy.
I would have never thought we would be where we are today in two short months into our treatment plan.
Looking forward to seeing more and more positive improvements.
This is the first SPRING we are not consistently bathing, chewing and licking.
WE are eternally grateful for Dr Khalsa's advice and guidance.
Dr. Khalsa has been caring for and saving the lives of the many animals who I have shared my life with. She became a part of our lives many years ago when one of my rescued canines, Frank, had unexplainable seizures. Having heard of Dr.Khalsa and her work, I travelled from New York to Pennsylvania to seek her help with Frank. In a matter of one visit not only did she diagnose his seizures but she began treatment that would allow him to live for the next 10 years almost seizure free. Throughout the years I have presented Dr. Khalsa with some of the most complex, terminal, and unanswerable issues and she has always been my beacon of hope. She is one of THE most brilliant doctors that I have ever met - in both human and veterinary medicine. When she relocated her practice to Florida (and then New Zealand) I continued to seek her care via teleconferences and email with virtually no difference. I cannot thank her enough for all the support and care she has been over the many years and will continue to rely on her expertise for any and all animals in my care.
Dr. Khalsa has been the vet I consult with for my pets healthcare for at least 9 years now. I’m a chemical engineer who has a ton of questions and won’t accept anything but the best for my pets. During this time, I have found that Dr. Khalsa is an innovative and relentless healthcare provider whose compassionate equals her veterinary expertise - and who truly “gets” the love between a human and their fur babies.
Here are 3 instances of how Dr. Khalsa has greatly helped the health and well-being of my pets:
1) She first helped me when my 11 year old golden retriever, Murphy Brown, was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma and I decided chemo degraded her quality of life too much. Dr. Khalsa addressed her cancer by boosting her immune system through supplements, diet and various holistic remedies and Chinese herbs. Murphy ended up having as much energy as she did when she was a puppy and was able to swim about an hour each day until the last couple weeks of her life. We were both in tears the day I had to help my Murphy pass.
2) Upon getting another golden puppy, Macy Gray, I consulted with Dr. Khalsa before I even picked up Macy to ensure I did what was necessary to provide the best health for my new baby. Dr. Khalsa made sure I was feeding and supplementing Macy to best support her immune system and minimizing unnecessary vaccinations to help minimize her chances of cancer. Any questions I had, Dr. Khalsa was there to provide an answer - and a thorough explanation about why she chose that approach.
3) Dr. Khalsa has also helped my parents’ 13 year old dog, Livie, with her battle against an autoimmune condition, pemphigus foliaceus (PF) for the past 2-3 years. Conventional vets would have prescribed heavy dosages of steroids what would have eroded her immune system (and allow cancer run rampant) but Dr. Khalsa knows the best approach is not necessarily the easy or quick fix. Instead, she recommended heavy metal detoxification, stem cell therapy and Chinese herbs that have helped tremendously.
In summary, I believe Dr. Khalsa has helped me provide the best possible care to my pets – I only wish I could find someone I trust as much for my own health as I do Dr. Khalsa for my pets’ health.
Allergies are gone! After years of veterinary visits Gus is finally free of allergies and is healthy. I don't have to change foods and get into novel proteins. I don't need to medicate all the time. After 4 years of watching over Gus like a hawk ,I can finally relax. He's become a normal healthy and much more playful dog. He has not been this good since I adopted him from the SPCA 4 years ago. We are both very happy and grateful to Dr. Khalsa and her work..
I've known Dr. Khalsa for quite a few years. She has the largest repertoire of healing methods of any vet I know. In many cases where a conventional vet will say "Nothing can be done" she will offer numerous options. She adapts to whatever the situation calls for. I once rushed my dog to a vet when he had accidentally eaten poison. The vet said it was too late to help and we should just make him comfortable. I took that dog to Dr. Khalsa. She gave him the homeopathic remedy Gelsemium, then an IV of vitamin C, then she did acupuncture on his liver points. My beautiful dog recovered the same day and we had many more years. I've been a practicing homeopath for 30 years and have the highest regard for Dr. Khalsa.
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.
