When my kitty Tippy was found, he weighed only 4 lbs. He was sick and frostbitten. The shelter wouldn't adopt him out because he was sick. A rescue took him, but in foster care he gained too much weight. When my husband and I adopted him, he weighed 18 lbs (8 lbs overweight). His joints were stiff, he had an upper respiratory condition, and various stress related issues. For the first year he lived with us, he was in and out of the vet. His health and weight issues only got worse, despite everything we did for him. I was in school at the time studying to become a dog trainer. The more I learned about canine and feline nutrition, the more I realized many of Tippy's issues could be helped by a biologically appropriate diet. I chose Freshpet as his new food because it was fresh, had limited ingredients, and was affordable. In the first week, Tippy was more active and interested in playing. He also had fewer hyperesthesia episodes. It has been four months since Tippy has been on this food and I am very pleased with the results. His overall health is improved, including his hyperesthesia and upper respiratory. His newfound willingness to play and interact is aiding in his weight loss program. He has not had any blockages since starting this food, which was a frequent issue before. He seems happier and much more comfortable since beginning this food. I now own a professional dog training company specializing in the rehabilitation of aggression and fear. I recommend Freshpet to all of my clients, as diet has a great influence over behavior. My clients have all been as pleased as I am with the results of this food. It will be a long road to recovery for Tippy, but with Freshpet, exercise, and love, he'll get there! www.blueskycanine.com
