Hi Dr. Harvey’s, We wanted to reach out to you to let you know our story and our journey with Captain and his diabetes.
Our dog Captain is a 10 year old Miniature Schnauzer who become diabetic just over a year ago. Our early start was with the prescription dog food our Vet recommended for Diabetic Canines. It did not take long to realize his glucose numbers were not stabilizing, in fact they got worse.
We realized they got worse because the ingredients for this food contain foods that convert to sugar. Shame on the food company. We went to a animal nutritionist in New Jersey and she started us on the path of a custom home made meal plan for Captain. His number improved but we weren’t satisfied. My wife is extremely smart and, in my opinion truly understands more that even I give her credit for sometimes. Pam started tinkering with the meal plan and soon his numbers greatly improved. She so smart.
However, we were pointed in the direction of Dr. Harvey for his solution by our groomer, Chris, from The Good Life Mobile Dog Grooming in Nanuet, New York. She was the one who introduced us to your products. We are very grateful to her for this recommendation! She is the best and most knowledgeable groomer ever! Keeping up with home based created food and securing fresh ingredients all the time is a bit trying for our family. However, we won’t compromise on what Captain needs. People that know us will tell you when it comes to Captain we say “Whatever it takes”. We long ago always knew that a dog should be eating what a dog should be eating and the commercial dog foods are garbage.
When we ordered our first order of Paradigm we couldn’t wait until we got it. It helped us be able to feed Captain a bit easier with the very ingredients we were feeding him ourselves. (Somewhat). In addition, it has come to light that we may be over do it with protein. As I understand it can lead to a whole new set of issues. It is our hope that Paradigm will be our Miracle…because we deserve one.
Captain is now on the Paradigm food and he adjusted his intake and this was able to stabilize his glucose numbers.
He is doing just fine!
OK I will get off my soapbox,
Pam & Fred Ostrofsky
PS sorry for the long winded email. So many pet parents don’t understand the feeding revolution.
All of the pups in this beautiful family of Italian Greyhounds are benefiting from Dr. Harvey’s foods. They wanted to let us know and to share their enthusiasm for their new diet!
Dear Dr. Harvey’s,
Soda Pop loves his new food! He has actually slowed down on gulping his food. He wants to savor every bite! You would never know that he has eaten out of his bowl it is so clean from him licking. I tell Soda he can’t lick the color off!! Lol
I have ordered a bag of Paradigm but haven’t received it yet. Also I ordered the grain-free Veg-to-Bowl for our other 3 Iggys. They really like it too.
Please keep Soda Pop in your prayers that he has beaten the Mast Cell monster. With the help of Paradigm, I know his chances have increased!
Thank you for checking in! We couldn’t be happier with the way Louis is doing since we’ve made the switch to Dr. Harvey’s! I was skeptical at first because we have tried SO many different food options and so many medicines and Louis would still always have diarrhea.
I was beginning to think we’d never have a solution and he would just have to be on antibiotics long term which i definitely did not want to do.
It has been a month since we started him on Dr. Harvey’s and (knock on wood) he has had solid stool ever since!! It is such a relief not having to worry about it everyday and I can tell he is feeling so much happier and healthier. He has gained the weight that he lost and barks at me the whole time I’m preparing the food he loves it so much!
Thank you, thank you is all I can say! I’m telling all of my dog-mom and dad friends that they need to make the switch to Dr. Harvey’s. I could never go back to commercial after seeing how much healthier Louis is on Dr. Harvey’s!
My Very Best,
Hi Dr. Harvey’s,
I obtained Daisy, a 12 year old Lhasa Apso, as a rescue. When she came to me, she was blind and deaf and covered with sores from her untreated medical conditions. In addition to medical treatment, I knew a most critical component in her recovery pull be getting her on a very healthy food regimen. I was already familiar with Dr. Harvey’s quality, since I have been feeding it to my bird for many years as recommended by our vet.
It was a logical step to put Daisy on Dr. Harvey’s to optimize her chances of recovery. She loves the food! Three months later, through a combination of good veterinary care and excellent nutrition, Daisy is a hearing, seeing, and very healthy member of our family! She has no skin problems, no digestive issues, and is growing a beautiful coat! A week ago, Daisy’s former owner came to see her in a attempt to take her back. However, once she saw Daisy’s improved condition and healthy regiment, she realized that Daisy was in good hands, and did what was best for her pup-signed her over to me and Dr. Harvey’s all-natural diet!
With proper medical care and Dr. Harvey’s great nutrition, we expect to have Daisy around for many more years.
Linda Widdowson and Daisy
