Following your recommendation, I stopped giving him any canned dog food and now have him on a diet of dried dog food in the morning and freshly prepared food in the evenings to include either carrots or spinach. He was put on strong medication by his vet and the combination of the medication and change in diet produced good overall results. His coat has returned to fullness and silkiness, his thirst has lessened, he pants less, and his stomach has gone down although it will swell again after several days of not taking the medication. I also gave him your superfoods supplement you mailed me. He hesitated a bit as he can be a bit finicky. I saw how slow transition is better for finicky eaters.
Within the last two weeks I decided to try your superfoods supplement mixture again; this time Scruffs was more accepting and has eaten it with his evening meals without problems. For the first four or so days of using the mixture I did not notice any change. However, I have noticed an improvement since then: namely, his stomach swelling has reduced. The change was so surprising that this week I decided not to give him his medication and see if the stomach swelling remained under control and for the most part it has! (I have been giving him about 1 teaspoon a day.) I probably will resume his medication but am excited about the results from the supplement.
Because I am happy with the initial results from adding the supplement. I want another jar. I will keep you updated on Scruffs status as well.
