    the following web page is a list of the registered Holistic vets in Australia.

    ArkOz Animal Health - Holistic Vets - Queensland Australia

    there is one Holistic vet near the sunshine coast at Coolum, however they have just started to practice holistic veternary and so may not have the knowledge bank built up in Holistic remedies that someone practicing for a while would have. most of the Holitic vets are based back towards Brisbane in areas such as Mansfield - about 1 hour 15. mins from caloundra. Browns plains and Alexandra headlands - about 1 1/2 hours from Caloundra.

    If these areas are to far away for you, give some of them a call as i am sure they will know someone closer to you or someone that has the knowledge in your particular type of problem that they can recommend that may not be listed on this page.

    I hope everything goes well

    Thanks Nic,

    Yes that's my baby in the picture, when she was healthy earlier this summer. She really is a beautiful girl inside and out. Even if the worst does happen and we lose her I will be eternally grateful for the wonderful 5/6 years we had together, I couldn't have asked for a better dog. She is the first dog I have owned and she really did make everything easy for me, until now of course but that's so not her fault.

    I have found a homeopathic ( not sure how that differs from holistic) vet very close to us. Thanks for the link Dobbiegirl. I am going to give him a call on Monday.

    Will keep you posted

    holistic vets would be ones who use both traditional medicine and natural therapies (with a focus on the traditional) and a homeopathic vet would...well...this is the dictionary definition of homeopathy

    "A system for treating disease based on the administration of minute doses of a drug that in massive amounts produces symptoms in healthy individuals similar to those of the disease itself."

    reference: dictionary.com

    Depending on what state you live in you have other options too.

    I did some research on homeopaths (10 yrs ago) its based in science and can work it is a legal way to immunise children without them being exposed to all the crap in innoculations.
    They can explaine it to you if they cant dont go.
    Goodluck

    Oh yes i understand with all my heart

    Alternative methods have great benefits...I understand this is more neurological, though alternative methods may support you both.

    Acupunture may help...Prehaps some remedies? Page Coulson is simply amazing in her devotion for animals. I have her gorgeous remedy here for all stressed out newbies and it's benefits go beyond words.

    I am thinking of you both and sending huge positive energy and love

    Sweet dreams,

    Hi

    These situations are never easy, and my thoughts are with you. I went through a slightly similiar experience when I was 12 years old. My old boy Jake, who was a Lab x Kelpie, grew up with me. One day I noticed he wasn't himself, and he was hiding under the house a lot, which was something he never did. Slowly, I noticed his tummy was getting bigger and bigger, and when he rolled on his side to get a belly rub, he was in so much pain he couldn't get up again

    We took him to the Vet and they said he had a twisted stomach and arthritis in his back legs. The twisted stomach had caused major bloating, which was beyond being able to fix. He gave us antibiotics and other tablets to ease the pain. I was in year 6 at the time, and I hated going to school and leaving him at home. I told mum to give him a chance, and not to take him back to the Vet. I strictly told her not to let the Vet's put him too sleep. Being 12, I didn't fully understand how selfish I was being by keeping him here. He was clearly in a lot of pain, and I didn't want him to go. Looking back, I wish I had made the decision sooner to put him to give him his wings, because I know the pain he was suffering, I could see it in his eyes

    I still regret not letting him go sooner. I really hope Holly gets better, especially being so young. It's not fair, and it makes you wonder, "why me? why my dog?" but they say things happen for a reason.

    What ever decision you make, I am sure everyone in your family, and every one on here will give their full support. I know I do

    Just remember, even if the worst does happen, Holly won't leave you. Being your first dog, she has left a special footprint on your heart, and she will live on inside you, forever

    Take care, and all the best. Give yourself and Holly a hug from me

    xxxxx
