I have a 15 1/2 year old dachshund going thru kidney failure. Back in April I thought I was losing her and she wouldn't eat a thing. I decided to try Vital and she ate it and a week later had perked up. I've continued to feed her the Vital and she is doing well on it still a few months later. I know it won't cure her but she's eating twice a day and it's the only thing she will eat. Thank you Fresh Pet for renewing an old dog!
