Therese Persdotter has a masters degree in social science from Hawaii Pacific University and Malmö University. During her studies in Hawaii, she was an active member and advocate of human rights issues. Back in Sweden 2006, she became the proud owner of a Brussels Griffon toy breed male. After a limping incident it turned out patella surgery was necessary, and corrections were made on both knees. After having had the dog on NSAID (Metacam) for several weeks, acute internal bleeding and shock almost caused his death. After this incident, his liver test values were elevated and immune related issues arose such as IBD, chronic ear infections, bleeding tonsils, eye infection, allergic skin infection and also arthritis. After several rounds of antibiotic, the dog didn't improve and that's when Therese started seeking answers within the natural health field.
This was 2009, and also the last time this dog had a vaccine booster. Today, by strengthening the immune system and keeping the dog free from harmful steroids, chemicals, vaccinations and low grade pet food, the dog is doing much better and improving.
Natural pet health practitioners are scarce in Sweden, but there is a growing need out there. Therese Persdotter is presently enrolled in an online course in Basic Canine Nutrition and seeks to follow with a course in Animal Herbalism. She is also currently writing on an article for The National Health Federation, Sweden, where she seeks in accordance with PWA, to bring attention to the practice of annual booster vaccinations, contrary to new guidelines still happening in Swedish vet clinics. Also raise concerns to its potential long term side effects and inform pet owners about the protocol of titer testing.
