My Best Friend Was Diagnosed with Acute Renal Failure

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

It is sad to say how many cases like this that we hear about. We are happy that Mason is doing better and that his guardians wanted to pay it forward. At their request, we are sharing Mason’s story, in hopes of helping other dogs who may be suffering with the same condition.

Dear Dr. Harvey,

We Spoke On The Phone-It Was So Refreshing

We have spoken a few times over the phone, which I can’t tell you how refreshing that is in a world of automated customer service.

We Were Prepared for the Worst

When I first called you back in February 2012, my best friend Mason, a 5-year old Boxer-Lab mix was suffering from Acute Renal Failure. His kidneys were functioning at 20% and we were preparing for the worst.

With the exception of working from home, the signs were so subtle, I would have never known anything was up with him until it was too late. I took him to multiple vets, all prescribing medications, fluids, etc. None of which were working. We had been feeding him a premium kibble food, a choice that runs over $80 a bag and seemingly has a short ingredient list (compared to other store-bought pet foods).

Thank You So Much

We found your product through a magazine article and I immediately called and you answered! Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me about what you thought was going on with Mason on a nutritional level. Helping me plan his meals with highly digestible protein sources and fats I could control have seemingly saved, or at least
extended his life.

It’s A Miracle!

One year later his kidneys are functioning at 46%! A MIRACLE considering the permanent damage to his constitution. We have kept on a mixture of The Canine Health Formula and Veg-to-Bowl and I continually make small adjustments to the quantities to help him maintain an ideal weight without being too hungry or too full.

Again, I can’t thank you enough for saving our family member and hopefully the people we’ve hooked on the brand help pay this forward to their animals and back to you. Thank you for what you do.

With gratitude,

Mason & The Wimmers
