He had some issues with fainting.
His fainting was like paralyzing in his front legs.

He runs, plays, barks all day.
He did not faint again.
He is awkward, he plays and pops on the furniture.
He was always careless.
He is very possessive with everything.
Even with his place on the couch.
One day he started limping and seemed unable to.
I thought that it was because it rained outside. But on the walk he was really better.
But he couldn’t get on the couch. He seemed to be suffering a lot.
Then I hugged him and take him to bed.
His attitude was "help me, I can’t climb on the couch".
That day before he started limping I was hugged by a family member.
When he followed the conventional treatment, his hair was very cloudy.
Now it's very shiny without anything changed.
It is incredible. You feel that his perception has risen sharply.
I tell him "I'll lie down and when it's time for the dinner ,
you'll come and wake me“.
He came. He shook me. It was unbelievable.
He is like a small child. He has crazy a energy. He runs up and down.
Compared to the other family dog that Charlie is one year older,
the other looks like “grandpa”.
Charlie is like an alien. He is young again.
A friend asked me
- What is Charlie doing?
- He is another dog. He is the dog that I forgot I had.
The vet has been saying for a long time that he has improved a lot.
His hair is very good.
He finds that he has done so many conventional treatments
Ηis internal organs have not been affected, are clean.
He used to get colic when he took supplement of iron.
Now, no diarrhea or convulsions.
His intestines, which used to be heard, has stopped.
It is obvious that he has improved.
Everyone sees it.
A few days later:
His hematocrit is at 39.
I took him to the vet. All the previous times, his hind legs were shaking
during the examination.
This time he lay down comfortable and relaxed.
He put on the holder
without turning his head and he didn't seem to be scared.
Review from the Owner:
When Charlie fell ill with Leishmaniasis 6 years ago I was scared and prepared for the
worst...chemical therapies one after the other only managed to sustain the dog for small
periods of time before he fell ill again, with the disease getting more and more aggressive. Just
before Christmas I was told it was back again (hemolysis causing severe anemia) for the 5th
time and with Charlie's oldish age (11 years) it would be even harder for him to survive the
therapy. I was devastated!!! This is when Margarita (Mrs Nomikou) came in to our life...So
approachable (even from the 1st phone call) and full of positive energy she clicked immediately with
both me and foremost with Charlie!! Charlie started with the therapy she advised immediately and
from day 4 the change was obvious! He was happier, stronger, his fur fuller, his eyes brighter
and his appetite improved. 4 whole months have passed and the dog is unrecognizable!! He
looks and acts like a young Charlie and most importantly after 4 months the anemia has also
started to improve in digits (the last test finally gave a hematocrit within the normal range). I
have to stress that Margarita was there whenever we needed her, eager to listen and help throughout
the way. More so, all this went on during the stressful coronavirus outbreak where Mrs Nomikou never
stopped being there through Skype to assist us when needed. I know that Charlie still has along
way to go but I now feel confident that he will have good life quality and above all I am grateful
for Margarita having crossed my and Charlie's path!!!
