When I got my dog from the local shelter, I never anticipated he would have food allergies and, likely, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The result was, he couldn't eat regular dog food. It made him sick, resulting in vomiting and diarrhoea. His appetite waned, and he began losing weight. Euthanasia became a likely prospect, since he was suffering and there seemed no treatment that would correct the problem. Even my vets were stymied. Then I came across Freshpet's ad and decided to try their food. The Vital food seemed appropriate and since I started him on it, he absolutely has thrived. Almost overnight, his appetite improved and his stools went from soupy to solid. It was nothing short of miraculous. Thanks Freshpet for saving my dog from a fate worse than death.
