Susie’s Story

Just a note to thank you for coming up with your Freshpet dog food (chunky beef flavor). We have a 15 yer old toy poodle that has been suffering with irritable bowel syndrome for most of her life. She will eat ok for a while and then she just stops eating, has problems with her bowels, begins to throw up a thick white mucus and then her intestines begin to make noises that can be heard across the room. The only answer the vet has was to give her peptomisol. After almost a day after giving her the pepto, she will finally begin to eat again. Sometimes, if we just left her alone for a while without anything, she would eventually get better and begin to eat. This got to a point where this was happening about every week or 10 days. We finally went to another vet who changed her food from Science Diet canned C/D to Royal Canine canned for sensitive stomachs and then also gave us a steroid liquid which we would give her 1/2 cc when her stomach started to make the noise and she would stop eating. This would work in about 3 hours and she was fine until until she stopped eating again which has gotten to be about once a week now. We would put pieces of beef roast on the canned food and she might eat the meat but not the canned meat. And the steroid got to a point where she would eat great for about a week and then we would have to give it to her again to get her to eat. We became desperate since she was loosing weight (from 11 lbs down to 9 lbs). I had seen your product in the refrigerator at our Ingles Market here in Hiawassee so I suggested to my wife that we try it to see if she would eat that. I got a 1.5 lb package of the chunky beef about a month ago to try her. And praise the Lord, she loves it and has not had another episode of not eating in at least a month when before getting your food, as I said, we were having to give her the steroid at least once a week. Praise God for you and your food. She is getting to a point where she begs for your food at each meal. The only problem is that she does not have many teeth anymore so that when she eats, her saliva runs out of her mouth and is staining the fur around her mouth a deep brown color but we can live with this just as long as she is eating so well and not having the noisy intestines any more. Very truly yours Ward K. Woolley
