I can't thank you enough for changing my precious dog Barclay's life. He has been on your food for almost 8 weeks. Barclay, a now 12 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, eats preference for breakfast and force for dinner. This has been truly life changing for him and I believe your food is the reason why my boy celebrated his birthday this week.

The first 11 years of his life I cooked him homemade dog food and would have gladly continued doing so. Then, in December 2010, Barclay developed a bladder and kidney infection of both ecoli and cetamonis. Through ultrasound in April of last year, when the vet learned of the extent of his kidney damage from this dangerous bacteria, she explained that he could no longer digest the high protein diet that he was on and that he would instead have to go on a prescription diet. She said that he could not live any other way and that this was not an option. He was on antibiotics for 17 months and this prescription food for 11 month. We watched Barclay steadily decline. His personality had always been playful and happy and he was becoming sluggish and exhausted. A dog who could always walk for miles and could climb big hills couldn't make it to the end of our driveway. A 19 pound dog gained 6 pounds eating hardly any food. Finally, I felt I had nothing left to lose. My trainer at the gym has used your food for his yellow Lab for several years and with his encouragement I decided I might as well try.

Barclay is like a new dog. He can go on his old walks. He is playful and rolls over. Most amazingly, however, is that after 17 months of treatment he finally got rid of the severe infection. This cannot be a coincidence. We are so thankful and we attribute all of this success to the high quality of your excellent food. Barclay has also lost all of his excessive weight. Thank you so much for making such a wonderful product, we will be forever grateful.
