helped with liver levels
Grady is a 14 year old 20 lb poodle/westie mix and the most handsome little guy you have ever seen! Shelter dog that we adopted when he was 6 and from day one was not a good eater. Over the years we tried everything and he either itched or had soft runny stools or didn't like the food. Always an issue but we tried various foods over the years but nothing ever worked really great. Eventually he really started to slow down - thought he was really on the way out, and was not eating at all...I mean thought he would starve to death - and during routine blood work before a teeth cleaning his ALP (one of the liver enzymes) level was over 1100, up from about 600 the year before. Was actually having seizures. Normal range is up to 212. He was tested for cushings the previous year becasuse 600 was so high but it came back negative. Vet put him on Denarmarin and and we researched foods and spoke to Volhard nutritionist Jen who spent a lot of time with us and gave great input. Ended putting him on NDF2 and after 6 weeks his levels came down to the 600 range again. Not sure if it was the NDF or the Denamarin, but the combination worked great. Best of all, he loved the food! eats it with no problem. We started with ground turkey (cooked, not raw) and will shift to or add chicken or fish occasionally to mix it up. Aside from eating better and improved liver levels he is MUCH MUCH better. Still sleeps a lot but he generally has MUCH more energy and is so much more alert. Probably not a stretch to say Volhard saved Grady's life and can absolutely say NDF2 improved and extended his life. Great product and expert advice!
