Exactly one year ago, my cat Tosca was desperately ill. The vet told me she had complete renal failure and would have to be put down. Her blood test results were off the charts. She was just shy of her third birthday, and only a month earlier had seemed totally fine.
I was having my own health crisis, and so boarded her at the clinic for a couple days until I could get things tended to and think straight again. Luckily, during that time she improved just a little, so I decided to see if I could nurse her back to health.
The vet wanted me to give her intravenous fluid, which was a hopeless cause. Try holding a cat still for 10 minutes with a needle stuck in it! She nibbled at the special food from the vet but wouldn’t eat much. I was frantic for her to eat, since she’d lost so much weight. I tried every trick I could think of to increase her food and water consumption.
My sister told me about your product, so I decided to give it a try. When the package arrived I thought it smelled awful, but as soon as I opened the bag, Tosca wanted to take a look. I said to myself, no cat will ever eat something with pumpkin in it, but she was actually licking it plain from the can. I can’t describe the happiness and relief I felt when she actually ate some of the finished product. For months I had to literally hand feed, but she kept getting better.
At our checkup a few weeks later, the vet was really surprised, and said keep on doing whatever I was doing. His only reservation was cooking the meat rather than using it raw. When we went back in March he was literally shocked when he walked into the room. He didn’t even draw blood because he said he could see she was fine.
Today, she looks like the healthiest cat around – sleek, great muscle tone, soft, glossy fur, energetic – and is a happy cat. I’d like to thank you for making the special kidney support food. Without it I’m not sure she’d still be around. Now I have hope that she’ll live a normal life.
