I have a 5 year old Shih Tzu, Bob, who was a puppy mill rescue. He had been crated for the first 3 years of his life. When I first brought Bob home with me he had no muscle tone and no energy. No matter what I have fed him – even trying to make food from scratch – nothing would help his energy level. Bob comes to work with me every day. He would spend most of the day sleeping. I would end up having to carry him out in the evening to go home because he was too exhausted to walk on his own.
Taking Bob for walks generally meant carrying Bob back home because he could not go far without tiring. I started him on Verve a month ago, and I cannot believe that this is the same dog. His energy level has steadily increased. His eyes are bright and he just looks healthier. Most importantly, he just looks happier. Other staff members at work are amazed at the transformation. Not only does Bob love the Verve, but I had to stop serving it to him on a paper plate because he would eat the food and then proceed to eat the plate. I cannot thank you enough. Now I just need to find something for my energy level, so that I can keep up with him. -Pam Ball and Bob
