I would like to share a story with you. I am sure you receive hundreds just like it, but, bad things always get stated. Good things, not nearly enough.
After loosing almost all of my pets to the tainted pet food, I went looking for a special needs, senior(my own disabilities do not allow me to lift anything heavier;), under 10 lbs, little dog. It took 7 months to finally get one. She was almost dead from parasites. So thin and so ill. She would not eat or drink. Long story short, she was a product of a puppy mill and human abuse. OK, got her healthy, but, never found anything she could really tolerate as far as food went. For two years it was a huge struggle. Nothing I purchased or even cooked for her was really agreeing with her. She would break into bouts of Pancreatitis. I carried her antibiotics with me as I never knew when an attack would occur. Two years ago June, I moved to Atlanta GA from NY. During Christmas, my little one went into a full blown pancreas attack. I thought it would kill her. I took her right into the emergency vet. He told me that little ones like her needed to be fed the best dog food sold. Also, that because of her poor breeding, she genetically could not produce the enzymes she needed to digest as she should. Her history with me was one of constant upset tummies, throwing up, just so sad. He told me a new pet food and supply store had opened up across the way. He said to go there and buy the best food I could find, which he felt, was Natural Balance. As my pup is allergic to beef, chicken, duck, and almost all grains, he said your product came in Bison and Venison. I thanked him, and off we went to find the store. Long story shortened, I purchased my first cans of Venison and Sweet Potato, and the rest is history.;) Except for one time, when they ran out of Venison and Sweet Potato, and could not get it in, she has been the picture of health. As long as she eats Natural Balance Venison and Sweet Potato, she is perfect. When they were out, I tried, I think Wellness?...it was the only other venison food product there, that was high end. She had to eat something. Well, one meal of it and she went into an attack. What I am trying to say, is I am one of your products biggest fans. I tell everyone who asks me what I feed her, the above story. She is living proof of what QUALITY pet food can do. I have attached two photos for you. One is taken two weeks after I got her. (She looks awful I know. But, you should have seen her before). Please do not be upset by her crippled leg. It was not treated correctly for the injury. Truth be, she was not treated at all. It stems from the abuse of her former owners, who purchased her as a fashion accessory. Her other front leg is all steel plate and screws. Same issue. That is why no one wanted her. Oh, yes, she is not a senior. She had just turned two when I adopted her from the rescue.
This is what your food can do. My little one is alive and thriving because of your outstanding product.
I have never written a letter like this before. I hope it is OK. I just think your company deserves to know, even though she is just a dot in the hundreds of animals who eat your products, she is alive because of your extremely high quality products. From one extremely grateful dog owner, Thank You for caring to produce such a good and SAFE pet food! Best Always.Eve P
