We found a dog while on vaca in Puerto Rico Dec 2019. . She was diagnosed with ehrlichia by a veg there. We assumed we’d bring her home with antibiotics and she’d be fine but she continued to worsen. After being home in the US for 2 months- her CBC # had gone from 20 to 10. She had NO red blood cells. After 2 months of steroids. and antibiotics and a cost of about $2,000, the vets at emergency care told us they could do nothing more. She had chronic ehrlichia and would die at any moment. It was a waiting game.
I researched tirelessly on the internet and Dr. Khalsa’s name kept coming up. I contacted her on a whim and she answered my email within 24 hours. After just 7 days on Dr K‘s treatment, ((which cost a fraction of what we had already spent with specialists who could do nothing), our dog’s CBC went up to 20. It’s been 6 months and our dog’s bloodwork just came back completely normal. Dr. K.did the impossible for us and saved our dog from an ‘incurable,’ chronic disease. If any of our story sounds familiar, don’t hesitate.... Dr.K is unique and absolutely knows what she’s doing.
We are so happy that we consulted with Dr Khalsa concerning our retired wire hair dachshund show dog. Captain had been having bad skin problems for several years. When on meds it seem to clear up. When off meds for a while the infection would come back. Finally we said “enough is enough” and decided to consult with Dr Khalsa. She had treated several of our dogs for various reasons when she was in PA. Which was a one hour drive for us. She diagnosed him with Malassegia and prescribed Biopharma Formula 9, which required vaccinations for 5 days in a row and 2 days off until the big vial was finished. She said it was “like a miracle” and it was!!! Captain’s skin is now in great condition and has been for the last year. Can’t thank Dr Khalsa enough for all she has done for our dogs. We recommend Dr Khalsa to anyone looking for needed help with their animals! Pat and Gina
Ardi did really well on the Allergy Elimination 4 Pets treatment! Overall, I’ve never seen him as playful and peppy as he is currently. Ardi continues to surprise us with things he will do that before I would never imagine him doing, such as interacting with other dogs, enjoying long walks, and being more playful and engaging. His energy level is so much better. We noticed this spring, summer, and fall that he had significantly fewer reactions to things in the environment and they were manageable rather than completely out of control. No extremely raw skin or severe redness, just a little itchy at times but nothing like in the past. Acupuncture and chiropractic have been a great support as well. Nate and I are both very pleased with where he’s at and definitely think the treatments were a HUGE benefit to his health. I don’t think we would be where we are at today without them.
My name is Wendy and I am sharing my experience so I can give others hope.
I rescued a kitten we called Teddy. Teddy is currently 17 months old. Unfortunately, Teddy has been sickly since he’s 12 weeks old. The first illness at 12 weeks presented with lethargy and a high fever which required an emergency vet visit. Upon arrival they examined and x-rayed Teddy, and found sediment in his colon which they told me was possibly litter. He got fluids and antibiotics and his fever resolved and upon re-x-ray The sediment was gone.
Since that time Teddy had been sick. He constantly had loose stool, Partially formed sometimes mushy sometimes with blood. He’s had high fevers and lethargy with a greasy coat. He had the energy of an old cat not a kitten. Spending a lot of his time sleeping. When his brother Kitty Who’s the same age would try to get him to play Teddy would just decline and curl up in a ball. It was sad.
He spent his first year going to the vet every 3 to 4 months with these episodes. He could run a fever of 105, and his white cell count is at its highest was at 60,000.
They retested him for all the major cat diseases and he also had extensive studies on stool and urine, with all his tests coming back negative. He would stay hospitalized on IV fluids and antibiotics for 3 to 5 days.
He’s been Prescribed Clavamox, Amoxicillin, and Veraflox, with these treatments his fever will subside and he would be sent home with no clear answers. He would be good for a few months meaning no fevers and a bit more energy and then sick again.
It was noted that during his last episode and round of testing he showed low thyroid function which they explained indicated an early sign his system was declining.
My vet felt it may be FIP or a form of cancer, or Some type of immune problem which they did
not know how to treat or cure other than steroids and palliative care.
They informed me that I should be prepared that Teddy world not live very long.
Doing my own research online I was lucky enough to come across a post by someone who said they had a cat with FIP who was successfully treated by a doctor named Deva Khalsa. I thought to myself I have nothing to lose, so I did some research on her and I only saw positive reviews. Plus, I watched her videos and read some of her articles, I felt she was highly credible so I contacted her. At that first phone call I felt very hopeless, however, I will tell you that Dr.Khalsa was warm, down to earth, hopeful and very caring. She laid out a treatment plan for Teddy that made sense to me and we began treatment.
She put him on stem cell treatments which required injections. I’m a nurse but I’ve never injected a cat before it was a bit challenging. I will tell you Teddy did not like the injections. When I first started them he seem to get worse, more-lethargic and decreased or poor appetite and I think he found the injections painful which may have been more on the technique or lack of. I went back to Dr. Khelsa feeling defeated, she supported and guided me through, changing the treatment plan a bit and we persisted.
Teddy had a total of 15 shots inside 30 days. We broke the shots up into every second or third day which Teddy tolerated better. We completed the treatment plan.
I will tell you that I’ve never seen my cat healthier. He has incredible energy, He acts like the kitten he is. Jumping and running around with his brother kitty like an acrobat. His stools are normal For the first time in his life. He has a great appetite and looks beautiful. I can’t express how happy it makes me to see this little guy well.
It’s been over a month since his last injection and three months since his last hospitalization. I feel strongly that we saved Teddy’s life.
I am so grateful to Dr. Khalsa. She had hope and a plan for me when my own vets with whom I spent thousands of dollars had no clue. I can’t recommend Dr Deva Khalsa enough.
