My 14 y/o Pomeranian went into heart failure seven months ago. He needed CPR and a vent. He is doing fantastic now. The most trying thing when nursing him back to health was he would no longer eat his usual food that he loved -- Merrick. He wouldn't eat anything!! I tried everything. Cooking burger. Cooking chicken. Every kind of dog food in the Concord Pet Store. I kept throwing out so much food b/c he wouldn't touch it. I was at the end of my rope and literally as a last straw, I grabbed a bag of VITAL Complete Meal. I never noticed it before in the store. I figured, "What do I have to lose?" My dog LOVES it. He can't get enough of it. I am so happy that he is eating. And eating well! I believe that part of the reason that he is doing so well is b/c he is eating your food. It has been two months and he is still begging for it!
