Pixel's amazing recovery.....

Emergency vet treatment required....and then there was EMMETT !

Pixel's amazing recovery.....

My dog, Pixel, had been at the emergency vet for nearly 48hrs as the result of an obstruction in her stomach that involved surgery. She had not eaten in nearly 60 hours.


I came into the vet with bbq chicken and her favourite treat in the hope that she would eat and I could take her home.

She was not interested in the food at all. She would pick it up and drop it. I tried different ways for ten minutes in the rom and I managed to get her to eat half a pea size piece of cabanossi and she looked really uncomfortable swallowing.


The nurse came back and I said her throat seemed sore and that she didn't like swallowing. The nurse didn't seem to think there was a reason she should be.


When the nurse left the room I did the neck release, the jaw/tongue and the double release. I figured at this point I had nothing to lose.

She is a dog that is usually quite reactive to treatment but I got very little response from her until the third move on the jaw/tongue. She just paused still for what seemed like an eternity.

Three minutes later she was eating without a problem at all and in perfect timing for the vet to walk in and see she was eating and actively seeking food. She wasn't allowed home if she wasn't eating.


I started EMMETT 4 Dogs to be able to treat my dogs mostly for dog sports, but I never realised just how much I would use it in so many scenarios.
