KayaOther (dog) — Age 6
Kaya is our 6 year old Bernese Mountain Dog who has suffered with digestive issues her whole life :( Last year she was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, after months and months of diarrhea and losing weight. After much research, we put her on a raw food diet. For a while Kaya's immune system was able to handle the raw food, but within 8 months, her IBD had flared up again, and she dropped from 90 to 78 pounds. After putting her on a bland (and not in any way nutritious diet (rice and pumpkin) while she stabilized, I came across the Honest Kitchen. Wow! For a dog owner that has tried every high-quality food out there, and never had lengthy success with it, I would highly recommend the Honest Kitchen - Preference Base Mix. It has transformed our Kaya into a dog whose IBD is under control. She has an abundance of energy - people ask all the time if she is a puppy! - and most wonderful of all - she has not had one loose bowel movement since she started on it 3 months ago! We add cooked (boiled) chicken to this base, and alternate with other protein meat choices. Kaya loves the taste of the food, and stalks us around the kitchen while we are getting her meals ready! Thank you so much for creating such a quality food. We hope Kaya continues to thrive in her "senior" years, free of steroids and any medications, and this wholesome Honest Kitchen food to keep her healthy!
