Life with my two dogs was always amazing. Recently, we lost one of our buddies. That’s where it all started. My dog constantly cried and I was completely clueless. The team at Mango Clinic worked out a great treatment plan and now my dog is now coming back to his playful old self.
I knew rescue dogs weren’t the friendliest, but this one had terrible anxiety. I didn’t know much about his past but vets and behaviorists at Mango Clinic were keen on helping us. I talked to them about starting medication and weaning him off it. It was a smooth journey that gave me a happy best friend.
Tried every remedy in the book; herbal supplements, oils, foods, TV. But my doggo’s separation anxiety didn’t go away. I couldn’t be more thankful to therapists at Mango Clinic for giving me my life back. My Labrador now eats, sleeps, and plays, and I get to go out with friends again!
