“The orthopedic doctor said Cassie was a good candidate for amputation. He said the arthritis in her elbow and shoulder were so severe she would never walk comfortably. Previcox helped her pain for awhile but she developed liver disease from the pain medication. The specialist felt there was no other option but surgery. We were willing to do that, if absolutely necessary, but decided to seek other options.

We decided to try acupuncture. Dr. Luther recommended injections with homeopathic medication around the arthritic joints. This helped her almost immediately and she now walks and runs like there is nothing wrong with her. She goes in every 2 months for the injections and she continues to run and play like a puppy!”

“In January 2010, the only option for my Golden was radiation treatments in Tampa for his mast cell tumor. (post op his sutures could not be removed because the tumors were growing too rapidly and would burst through the stitches) In preparation for the worst case scenario, I had previously read about such treatment and decided I could not put my senior dog through such a rigorous routine as he is too sensitive.

As I watched him play in our backyard with his chewed up soccer ball, I realized I could not give up on him as there was too much life left in him. That’s where my story begins, I will try to keep it brief. I read everything I could on home remedies etc. online. I did follow the ‘budwig’ diet for several months. I treated his suture site with vitamin E oil and prayed for healing. CJ now has a gray scar where the tumors were trying to burst forth. I also went to Holistic Pet Foods on SR 70 where I met Elizabeth and she recommended a raw, grain free, diet as well as seeing Dr. Anne Luther in Sarasota who is a holistic vet. (She is a God send when it comes to treating pets)
When Dr. Luther met CJ and examined him, she said, ‘There is no reason for this dog to die.’ He was treated with an injection into the mast cell site with Neoplasene. He has been on oral Neopasene and will continue for the rest of his days. Dr. Luther also suggested a Chinese herb formula, as well as immune support. She agreed with Elizabeth regarding the healthy diet. I also will no longer give my boys unnecessary vaccines.

Dr. Luther started out as a traditional vet. When she ran out of options treating animals, her staff suggested she send her clients to a holistic vet in the town where she then practiced. She said every time she did, the animals got better. This led her to further her knowledge of the holistic field and begin a holistic practice herself. I had nothing to lose and everything to gain, and thus far I have gained 16 more months with my boy. He will be 12 in July.
I am thankful for more time with my CJ.”

“Dr. Luther saved Diesel’s lifestyle–gave him back his spunk and vitality! I adopted a 6 year old chocolate Labrador retriever who had a 5 year history of recurring ear infections. Poor boy would constantly hold his head to the side, shake his head every 10 to 15 minutes and had lost all interest of playing. Diesel’s ears had been labeled chronic and the former owner had two previous vets who had done all they could.

New owner…new city…new vet — Dr. Luther has saved Diesels life! A combination of traditional medicine and herbs and the dog has his smiling, playful nature back! He is not only running, but actually initiating play and chasing balls again!

Thank you, Dr. Luther for your expertise and loving compassion!”

“We have 4 Jack Russell terriers: Ruth, Boaz, Rachel and Jacob. We brought them all home together when they were 8 weeks old. We immediately brought them in to see Dr Luther. Dr. Luther thought we were crazy, with 4 little puppies running around… She was right. After several days, Boaz starting showing puffy eyes. We came to find out that this was a reaction from puppy shots. This went away after several weeks, and he has been healthy ever since… Shot free. We have brought our Russells in for all kinds of things: spider bites, ear infections, allergies, etc and every time Dr Luther always diagnoses the issue properly and never over medicates our dogs. She knows that they are our babies, part of our family, and we are so grateful for that.

The beautiful display of love and affection Dr Luther shows for our dogs is not only wonderful, but so important to us.

Ruth just recently gave birth to 3 beautiful puppies, and Dr Luther was not only the first person we called, but she went over and above in taking care of both Ruth and the babies.”

“Copper wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for acupuncture.
My 18 year old Cockapoo, Copper, began receiving acupuncture treatments five or six years ago. He was having spasms in his hind end so my veterinarian in Indiana sent me to a veterinary specialist. The specialist wanted to do experimental surgery on him. I didn’t want to do that so I asked my regular veterinarian what other options I had and they recommended acupuncture. The spasms resolved with acupuncture and he is still doing well with regular acupuncture treatments.

When I first started seeing Dr. Anne Luther 3 years ago, Copper was on numerous medications for his heart. These medications had caused him to go into kidney failure. Dr. Luther recommended a cardiac ultrasound to evaluate the heart function. It was found that he really didn’t need to be on those drugs so she weaned him off of them. Instead he was placed on supplements for his heart which naturally help the heart function. He continues to do well and still doesn’t need to take any heart medications.

Copper also has Cushing’s Disease and he is doing very well on the medication. Dr. Luther was able to reduce his dose of medication by half, in order to avoid side effects, and he is still very well controlled with regular acupuncture treatments and holistic supplements.
Before we moved to Sarasota 3 years ago, I looked for a holistic vet before I even looked for doctors for myself and my family. I know that the acupuncture, herbs, and homeopathic treatments Copper has received have lengthened his life and improved the quality of his life. We think Dr. Luther and her staff are wonderful and I refer everyone to her.”

“It was so painful letting go of our little dog. He was our “baby” and we had enjoyed 18 wonderful years with him. But there came a time when his spark for life and his body’s ability to continue on finally failed him. He would lick our faces, and we could sense his misery as his quality of life was slipping away. We understood from numerous consultations with Dr. Anne Luther that this decline was not reversible. Finally, we accepted that it was time to say goodbye.

Dr. Luther and her assistants at the Sarasota Animal Medical Center couldn’t have been more sensitive and supportive. We sat cradling our little guy in a dimly lit room with a waterfall gurgling in the corner. It was a tranquil and tender parting, both for us and for him. We owe our thanks to them for helping us through this tremendously emotional experience . . . and also for the hugs.”

“We can’t say enough about Anne Luther and her staff at the Sarasota Animal Medical Center in Sarasota. Willie, our much loved Bichon Frise, was first treated for severe spinal arthritis by Dr. Luther. He was struggling to walk and was in obvious pain. We came to her for an alternative medical regimen, hoping a holistic approach could bring Willie relief without the unpleasant side effects sometimes experienced with drugs typically prescribed for this debilitating condition.

Dr. Luther started Willie on a regimen of weekly acupuncture and a new combination of meds, most of Chinese origin. We put our faith in her hands and hoped for the best.

From the beginning, we felt reassured and comfortable with the treatment plan. But most important, Willie felt comfortable. Maybe it was the rugs on the floor and cushy doggie bed, so that during acupuncture he could relax and rest in bed, cuddle on our laps, or nibble a doggy biscuit from the bowl. But his long-time fear of going to the doctor disappeared. Must have seemed like a home away from home for him. Kind of nice for all of us, really.

And every week, things just got better.

After only 2 sessions, we noticed that Willie was walking more easily. After 3 weeks, he no longer winced when we lifted him into our arms. And after 6 weeks of treatment, we had our dog back.”
