Animal lovers understand that pets are a part of the family. When they become sick or injured, it can be just as nerve wracking as if it were a parent, child, or sibling who is suffering. On top of that, our furry friends can’t use words to tell us what is wrong; it can be incredibly distressing to see them in pain and not know how to help.

Fortunately, there are veterinarians who are amazing at what they do. Dr. Ava Frick, the leading authority in veterinary microcurrent therapy and the Veterinary Medical Director for Electromedical Products International, Inc. (EPI), is one of those shining stars. One grateful pet owner recently wrote the following the letter to express her appreciation for the skills of Dr. Frick.

I want to give you my heartfelt thanks for helping Mopsy.  I truly believe that if not for your interventions, she would no longer be with us. 

Anyone who reads this and sees the attached and untouched pictures will see the bad shape she was in when I found her one morning.  She was completely flaccid on the ground with no response on any of her paws. 

Dr. Frick offers the best of two worlds by combining traditional and complementary veterinary medicine.  Because of this, Mopsy received a steroid shot to immediately reduce inflammation, along with Alpha-Stim®, which provides microcurrent electrical therapy. The latter is well researched and used in both veterinary and human applications with many VA hospitals using the device. Within 24 hours Mopsy could stand, and within a few more days was her happy self.  

I am so thankful that a friend introduced me to this smart, compassionate human being who loves animals and wants the best for them.  I believe we meet people, if we are open to it, at the right time and who can change the course of one’s life, be it human or animal.  Dr. Frick is such a person.

Dr. Frick has long understood the healing powers of Alpha-Stim to treat acute, post-traumatic, and chronic pain in animals of all kinds. Alpha-Stim is an FDA cleared medical device that uses microcurrent electrical therapy (MET) to deliver relief directly to the site of your pet’s pain via two Smart Probes. Treatments are quick and painless, yet relief is long-lasting and often immediate. And since Alpha-Stim is not a drug, there is no risk of lasting side effects in your pet.

The story of Mopsy’s recovery is heartwarming and wonderful – but it’s not the only time Alpha-Stim has changed an animal’s life for the better! One senior dog, once paralyzed, returned to normal function with the help of Alpha-Stim; other testimonials from grateful pet owners abound as well, and it was even featured on ABC News.
