They could never really explain it when we would ask her veterinarian. We switched to Steves Real Food frozen chicken approximately one year ago. Later, upon talking to other Steve Real Food customers, we were told that she probably had an allergy to all something that was in the typical dog foods.
We always used a very good brand, but it still had something that she was allergic to. She is 15 going on 16 now and not only LOVES her Steves food, but her health is just amazing to us since we changed her diet. Here is an e-mail that comes to us from Pahrump, Nevada.
Taylor is participating in our veterinary feeding trial. We have given Taylor 60 days worth of free food while he is being supervised by his veterinarian for arthritis. Henseler last Saturday. Energy level is increased. Now, this could be related to the weight loss Taylor has lost about 5 lbs since starting the diet …but, what does it matter!!?? I was not able to help him lose the pounds while he was eating kibble.
His winter coat is completely shedded out and is a gorgeous, shiny, silky, summer coat. When I mentioned this to Dr. Henseler told me, that is WAS a big deal because our weather was so goofy this spring that many of the dogs she was seeing — STILL had their rough winter coats. Limping is decreased. I am fully aware that I may never be able to get rid of the limp completely after all, he is almost But, I am happy that it is lessened. Henseler would like to do a blood panel at our next visit June 26th just to make sure everything is in line…he had a blood panel done about a year and a half ago, so she has a pretty good baseline to compare.
I see no problem with that. Here is a letter that came to us from Longwood, Florida. I thought you might be interested to know about our little Rescued Sheltie named Hope that has been eating your food for about 2 months now. Hope is a 16 yr. She has basically lost one eye due to head trauma and is dying of kidney failure….. I immediately went up and purchased 4 of the 10 lb. After almost a month on the food, I took her back up to our Vet and had her kidney levels re-checked.
Great Dane. Well he sure as heck shows fear in my neighborhood when little kids bounce and scream in their normal play and I will never allow them to bum, rush my dog as is their wont to do oftentimes. As many cat owners on this site are having this same problem, and I am going to point them in your direction! Note to everyone — no matter what the bible says, animals are not here for us to use and abuse. Check out these Instagram accounts to fawn over pics of these dogs with a noble past.
Please keep in mind according to Dr. BUN levels can change according to what a dog eats, the time the dog eats, etc. Her Creatinine and Phosphorus have virtually returned to normal!!!!!!!!
The dog is coming out of kidney failure and my Vet wanted to know if I was doing anything different than I had been over the past few months. I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to all of you.
This little girl deserves every bit of happiness that we can give her. Her life has been miserable for a very long time and I firmly believe that without your food, her life would be MUCH shorter. She had been given less than 6 months to live in December of Here is a letter that came to us from Eagle, Wisconsin. We have a 5 year old Bichon Frise who has had 3 surgeries for bladder stones.
Two of those operations were within 6 months of each other.
These surgeries, on top of being very expensive, were very hard on the dog. The recovery was difficult for us all. I went to my local pet food store, Petilicious, and the owner, Dave Krause recommended your food. It has been 2 years and she is stone free. Thanks very much for making such a fine product. Be sure to let me know if you ever decide to NOT manufacture this food. I need to be prepared! I would like to share the story of one of my recent foster dogs, Mambo.
The poor little mite, only a year old, was hunched over in agony. A 3-inch section of tissue protruded from his bottom, and every few moments, he strained and screamed in pain. He underwent the necessary surgery and I took him home the next day. After four weeks, I began to experiment with his diet, to see if I could get him on a more manageable potty schedule. I tried canned food — he gained weight, but he still pooped times per day, including during the night, and there was a great deal of straining involved.
I also tried a dehydrated formula, but it was very high in carbs, mostly potato, and this boy was an active one-year-old, and needed to put on lean muscle. Finally, my thoughts turned to raw. I had several criteria in mind as I searched for a suitable product. The food could not contain ingredients which the allergy test indicated that Mambo might be sensitive to including pumpkin. It had to contain high-quality, preferably human-grade proteins, organs, fish oils for omega-3 fatty acids, and vegetables and flaxseed for fiber.
It had to be reasonably priced. Finally, It had to be easy to use — no frozen chubs that required power tools to cut into meal-sized portions. I bought a 5-lb bag of the Turducken formula, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. I was not disappointed.
Mambo loved it. More importantly, I noticed that almost immediately, his poops improved in diameter, frequency and consistency, and he had an easier time passing them. Because of his special needs due to the fact that he had very little rectum remaining, I added a few things to his meals — a little baked sweet potato and extra ground flaxseed for additional fiber, and goat milk yogurt for probiotics. It was not long before Mambo had improved to the point that he could be adopted.
This is the true story of a special journey. She came into the world on a farm with her greatest loss, her mother. The three premature kittens were true survivors. Before they should have been able to try out their wobbly legs, they made it to a place in the field where their cries could be heard by a farmer. My friend Wendy has a passion for rescuing.
She is a veterinarian at that clinic where the farmer brought the three kittens. Since they needed 24 hour care, Wendy brought them home.
They were full of everything life threatening, i. Wendy and her daughter Nicole gave all they could to help the three kittens survive. Emmie was the littlest and the sickest. She weighed in at. They were a mess. All of the kittens had Rhinotraceitis one of the respiratory diseases the distemper vaccine prevents. Every morning Wendy told me she expected to come downstairs to find them dead. Bathing was frequent. This is about where I came in. I had lost my two cats within the previous 6 months and decided due to financial concerns, not to adopt another cat.
Wendy was trying to get the kittens adopted but they were passing the respiratory illness back and forth. I offered to foster whichever one was most ready to be separated. Ironically it was Emmie.
Who could have known the road ahead! Emmie arrived in my apartment on Labor Day of She was 2 months old and weighed 2. Who can take in a kitten like Emmie and then give her back! I had no clue what I was getting myself into but I knew there was a major learning curve ahead and I was not on the high end of it!

Emmie was sneeze free for about 2 days but then the symptoms came back full blown. At a veterinary visit I learned cats do get post nasal drip coughs! Who knew??? After 5 rounds of antibiotics with no success, my veterinarian suggested essential oil diffuser therapy. I felt horrible. I would put her in the bathroom for one hour three times a day, which was difficult since I work in an office 45 minutes from my house. She showed some improvement but not enough to call her close to being cured. So we sought out a holistic veterinarian next and went the route of supplements and specific foods.
She got better but not close to cured. My 2 cats are now 10 years old yet they are playful and alert.
