Thors Raw Success
A big thank you goes out to Denis and team for helping us and explaining the raw diet to us and all the benefits of it when we were at our wits end!
Meet Thor who was raised by myself from 3 days old after being rejected by his mum, because of the lack of essential milk from his mum his immune system is a bit comprised and his tummy is a bit more sensitive than your average puppy!
We spent countless months and $$$ trying to get his allergies under control with antibiotics, prednisone, anti-itch shampoo, anti-itch sprays, special flea treatments and many vet visits but nothing worked. His skin was still red and constantly itchy, he was still getting sores. I was certain his allergy was environment, never for a second did I think his food would contribute so much (in my mind I was spending $170 a month on "the good stuff" there's no way it could be that) but after speaking with Denis we went out on a limb and changed to raw diet and we wouldn't ever go back! The photo speaks for itself I'd say. Photos are about 3 months apart, left one was taken just before we started feeding raw and the right one was taken today. Another bonus for us is, it's also cheaper to feed!!! So a big, big thank you from Thor and myself, I recommend feeding raw to everyone I know with dogs and send them in your direction!!
Molly's New Lease on Life
Molly is a 13 year old border collie that has grown up as a town dog, a family pet. We have known her all her life however she only came to live with us 6 months ago. When she arrived her diet was a well-known and regarded bagged dry-food product; 2 scoops twice a day. Her demeanor was that of an old dog, disengaged somewhat. Her coat had no luster, was overweight, somewhat barrel-ish and she has a bit of arthritis making her weak in the legs.
When the bag ran out, we decided to change her diet to a raw meat diet and added 2 dog biscuits to each serving. She gulps the Beef Blend in a single mouthful and leaves the biscuits to eat later or not at all; she has been spotted burying them. To me she is not interested in the biscuits. In contrast she acts like a puppy when it is time for her meat. Our fridge is beside a glass door where she can see the food come out; her whole-body twists and turns in excitement and anticipation.
Molly has turned into an alert interactive dog behaving like she is much younger with energy to burn. As a result we walk her regularly and her legs have strengthened, she can almost jump into the back of our station wagon on her own. She pulls on her lead eager to head off. Her coat is thick and lustrous. Her weight has dropped to a healthy level for an old dog. Molly seems happy and content.
