About a month ago my little girl became extremely sick with no warning signs, after visiting our local vet we discovered she was suffering from an inflamed liver, her kidney levels were extremely high, and she was suffering from pancreatitis. We were told to prepare for the worst being that she is 10 years old and most likely would not recover.
After spending three days at the vets on IV fluid and medications we were allowed to bring her home but on a NF kibble diet and a ton of supplements and antibiotics. Things seemed better for a few days, but she refused to eat the hard-dry RX formula of food. For years we have fed her nothing but Blue Buffalo as I always had the perception that they were a quality food.
After a few days of being home she started to relapse and started vomiting every time she ate and again we were told to keep feeding her the Rx diet and to prepare for the worst. I did not want to give up on my little girl, but I did not want to see her in pain either, after days of research I happened to come upon Dr. Harvey’s website.
I spent hours going over reviews on Amazon and Facebook and in a leap of faith I placed an order for Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health Miracle Dog Food. It has been three weeks and I am happy to say that I have my little girl back, better than ever. She is her normal spunky self again thanks to Dr. Harvey’s. I cannot begin to thank you for saving my Baby Girl. I truly believe if it was not for this amazing food she would not be with us today. We will continue on this diet and at this point we have stopped all the supplements the vet recommended and switched to Dr. Harvey’s Kidney Health Supplement along with the Canine Health Miracle Dog Food.
I am happy to report that she is back to her old self with even more spunk then before. We have even stopped all the kidney treatments that the vet had her on and switched her to Dr. Harvey’s Kidney Supplement and she has done extremely well. Thank You again for helping my little girl. Attached are a few pictures of my Baby Girl.
Baby Girl is a 10-year-old Doxin-West Highland mix, and we look forward to many happy years to come.
Thank You Dr. Harvey,
Timothy W. Gutliph
UPDATE We have had great success when the Kidney Health Supplement is added to this fresh diet.
I wanted you to know about the journey of my silly St. Bernard, Dora the Explorer, who has a funny smaller nostril on one side. At only 18 months old, I thought the elective surgery to open it up so she could breathe better (and so I would not have to pick so many boogers!) would be a great idea. I asked the Vet to do the pre-surgery blood work so I would “have a base line.” Before I even got home, I received a call stating that she has “early renal failure.” To say I was shocked is an understatement. Of course, she still has her tiny nostril, as a side note!
The Vet immediately put her on fluids to cleanse her kidneys and recommended I put her on the Hills Prescription Diet immediately to help her kidneys. I did that and in the meantime, I began researching canine kidney disease. All roads led me to Dr. Harvey! I called him. He requested the test results so we could discuss her best nutritional options. Of course, I was impressed that he called me, he wanted to see the results (not just sell a product) and then took time more than once to fine tune her diet!
He recommended that I read and learn. I did! He told me to study Rehmannia. I slowly moved Dora off the Hills and onto the Canine Health Diet with cooked protein, wild Salmon Oil, and Rehmannia capsules in the doses Dr. Harvey recommended for her weight and test results. After 30 days, all measures but her Creatinine came into the normal range. That measure went up just a little. At that point, Dr. Harvey recommended I study Raw Green Tripe and start to feed that to Dora as well. I have added that into a mostly raw diet switching here and there since it is quite expensive. A few weeks later, his Kidney Health Supplement which contains Rehmannia, was available. I switched her from the capsules to that powder.
At our Vet appointment today, my Vet was amazed that ALL of her numbers are now in the NORMAL zone and he actually asked me what I as feeding her. Many measures were high in August. Creatinine was a little higher in October (everything else normal.) It is now November and everything is normal! I will continue to do what I am doing and praise God and Dr. Harvey for their love and concern for our pet! Dora seems happy, healthy, energetic, and more! She runs the hills on our property nearly daily and puts on way more miles on our hikes than I do! Thank you!
Sincerely, Jenny Lance and Dora
