Mattie & Sadie

Posted on March 9, 2013

We have two dogs, Mattie is 11 and Sadie is 12 years old.  Mattie had to have CCL surgery last July as she could no longer walk.  The surgery went well.  I asked the surgeon if she needed physical therapy afterwards to build back her muscles.  He said that she did not need it, and was 100% ok.  During the 2 month healing phase, after the surgery, Mattie did not want to be left behind on walks so we drastically shortened the length of Sadie's walks to get back to Mattie.  What a HUGE mistake!  Soon thereafter Sadie started falling down a lot and losing her footing.  She also started

Heartfelt Testimonial

Posted on November 8, 2011

Dear Dr. Royal and Superstar Staff, Thank you for all the love and care that you gave to Eli.  I wish we met earlier so Eli could have benefitted more from everything you do. You are all so wonderful. I got my first glimpse of this after Eli's endoscopy. I was pleasantly surprised to receive follow-up calls from both you and Dr. Harris over the weekend.  I continued to be impressed as other staff members called to check-up on Eli throughout the week. I was also always blown-away whenever Alex, Kate, Tash, Veronica, Zoe or Jessica would say “I heard Eli is having issue

Madison (Maddie)

Posted on January 15, 2011

Madison and I first met Dr. Barb Royal the summer of 2003. Madison had been having trouble getting up from the floor at the age of 6yrs old. Our previous vet had taken x-rays of her hips and diagnosed that she had no hip dysplasia (but didn't diagnose what the cause was) and prescribed daily doses of Rimadyl. I found this unacceptable and was searching for a better option.

Emma

Posted on January 15, 2011

"...It was time to try a different strategy. This time Emma saw Dr Royal and the staff at the clinic as a patient. Both of us were impressed and and soothed by the treatment. Emma spent a lot of time with Dr Royal and got a new lease on dog life. Eating natural carnivore food was tasty, plentiful, and made a tremendous difference. In 6months no more ear issues..."

Miss MoneyPenny

Posted on January 15, 2011

"MoneyPenny is over 14 years old  and had been challenged with her rear hips and legs. She could not hold herself  up when squatting, had enormous difficulty getting up from a laying down position and was unable to jump up on the bed. However, after her first acupuncture treatment, she was able to jump into the car, jump on the bed and sofa and was walking like a puppy again. Remarkable."

Rex

Posted on January 15, 2011

"Rex began seeing Dr. Royal over two years ago, when he was 13. His arthritis had reached the point where we noticed he was no longer running, and occasionally he would even limp. Dr. Barb put Rex on a course of acupuncture and underwater treadmill therapy. We saw results literally within two weeks -- he began running again, and his whole demeanor changed. He sprung back to life..."

Yin

Posted on January 15, 2011

"...I had taken her to three vets over a three month period and gotten as many diagnoses. Treatments changed with each new theory and she continued to go downhill fast...I sat down at my computer and googled 'Cat+Acupuncture+Chicago.'  I saw Dr. Royal in a YouTube video doing cat acupuncture. Her depth and connection comes through in that video and I knew she was the healer I was looking for...Today Yin is back to normal weight, appetite and activity. We still see the doctor for an acupucture tune up every few weeks. I am so grateful to have met Barb and to have my sweet pea under her care."

Harp

Posted on January 15, 2011

"...After just a couple of weeks of the therapy, Harp began to use the leg more and more and rebuild the muscles. Six months later, after a regular course of this therapy, we are amazed and happy to say that Harp is walking normally and even running on the leg again. We are extremely grateful to Dr. Royal and all the wonderful staff at The Royal Treatment!"

"Molly is our beloved golden retriever, she is 10 years old.  In January, 2009 we brought her to Royal Treatment, to improve the quality of her life.  She has several fused vertebrae, lumbar arthritis and other minor issues.  She immediately began acupuncture and the underwater treadmill...She just loves her sessions at Royal Treatment.  She knows exactly where we are when I turn the corner onto Rockwell and is quite excited to get in the door..."
