    A friend has just sent me this article on ME in animals. My dog Poppy was diagnosed with 'doggy ME' by the vet and she was very poorly for 14 years. I know a documentary has been broadcast on the TV about the disease in horses too. (Just as long as it is not admitted that the humans get it too as the information is then restricted by a D Rating). At least these somatising animals :angel: receive treatment and some recover. What will the Wessely school make of their aberrent illness beliefs? Will research on CBT for cats be funded by the MRC?

    It's been a long time since Walter Tarello did this work. Some Human CFS and ME patients went to see him for treatment as well in Italy.

    I'm Italian, I tried to contact dr. Tarello by email
    but he did not answer; now lives and works in Dubai, his therapy
    I think it was based on arsenic.
    I have had 5 pets, two cats and three dogs, all in my opinion
    have contracted ME, the last dog died a year ago had developed
    a diffuse peritonitis probably after being sterilized five years earlier.
    I did do an autopsy just nell'ambulatorio Regional Veterinary Perugia
    (the city of dr. Tarello)
