   Testimonial:
  HOW BELLY LIFTS SAVED MADAM’S LIFE
Testimonial By: Ansie Lofthouse        Publish Date: 2005-10-01

Dear Eugenie

I promised you the story of Madam and how Belly Lifts saved her life:
During December 2000 (26th of December to be exact) Madam, our then 5 year old, much loved Doberman bitch, managed to recover from a corner in the garage an old cow hoof. As pups both the girls loved playing with these horrible things and rooting around the garden for them. The hoof had gone “crispy” with old age and she managed to swallow it whole. We never saw any of this happening! A few days later Madam started vomiting and went off her food. Grant (husband) had put down snail repellent and Stan Krawitz (our vet) thought that she might have ingested this poison. She slowly deteriorated despite Stan’s best efforts.
 
After about 5 days we knew that Madam was dying. Stan decided to check her tummy once more. He had done x-rays but the hoof would obviously not show up on an x-ray. In desperation her fed her a Barium meal and did another x-ray and there it was – the dreaded truth. Madam had a bowel obstruction. This was on New Years eve! Stan put her on a drip and then sent her home for the day while we had to decide about surgery or not!
 
I decided to try T Touch and do belly lifts with a towel. After about five “rounds” working from the chest back towards the hind legs Madam suddenly trotted off and squatted for a bowel movement. After straining a bit, out popped 3 huge chunks of cow hoof and Madam was fine! Belly lifts saved my darling girl from surgery – perhaps even death!
 
I am now hoping for another miracle with Eve. Hold thumbs!
Regards,
Ansie Lofthouse
