It isn't always as successful as hoped, but Noel's result rate is generally excellent. And if you check the link to the website I put here, you'll see he has colaborated with the USA. It might be worth looking into. As he works with referrals, maybe your vet might be willing to contact him and see if anything can be arranged, even between countries?
