We received this email from a very grateful guardian and felt we needed to share it with everyone. There are many lessons to be learned by reading Dana and Fifi’s story.
Dear Dr. Harvey,
I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you thank you for all of your help. When I first got my little Fifi 6 months ago (she is a 4.5 lb pomeranian) she was in bad shape. Fifi is a retired show dog who I got from a breeder. I thought that by getting a dog from a breeder that I could rest assured that this dog was free from any ailments and illnesses. However, I was very wrong. Despite getting a letter from the breeder’s vet assuring that Fifi was very healthy, when I took her to my own vet it was quite a different story.
To my surprise, Fifi had kidney disease and was spilling large amounts of protein in her urine. She also had high blood pressure, a thyroid condition, an enlarged heart and an ear infection.
My heart sank when she said, “This is serious. Fifi is a very, very sick dog. If you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars in her treatments then you might as well just return her to the breeder.” I didn’t want to give up on Fifi; I knew there was something I could do. Immediately I got on the internet and began researching natural remedies for her many illnesses.
Six months later since we have been giving her the Dr. Harvey’s food, Fifi has improved tremendously! All of her kidney lab test results are within healthy rage, her blood pressure is normal, and her chest x-rays show no sign of an enlarged heart. Additionally, she has never had another ear infection. I still have to give her medication to control her blood pressure and thyroid, but besides that the Dr. Harvey’s diet IS her primary medicine
I am completely impressed by the company. Dr. Harvey has always been there for any questions I have had. Unfortunately, my vet does not agree with me feeding her Dr. Harvey’s diet and wants me to give her the special canned kidney dog food. After talking to Dr. Harvey I learned that feeding that food to my dog is the WORST thing you can do.
After all her lab results came back normal, however, there wasn’t very much that she could argue; the proof was in the test results. I also want to say thank you to Dr. Harvey for the continued support. In addition to support on how to feed the food specifically for my dog’s conditions, he also gave other holistic remedies to try.
I am blown away by this company. Never did I imagine that I would be speaking to the doctor himself who created this wonderful food. I know he is an extremely busy man, but whenever I speak to him, he treats Fifi’s health with the utmost concern and care.
I can’t thank Dr. Harvey and the entire company enough! I will feed this food to my dog for the rest of her life. :)
Dana (Fifi’s Mom) and Fifi
