Dr. Carol – what can I say…you’re truly a blessing!!! My 8 year old Lab, Harley got very sick. My dog wasn’t eating and I had to take a water bowl to her to get her to drink. She had zero energy and her breathing was weird and she had urinated all over the kitchen floor one night. I thought her breathing seemed a bit labored, in the end I would find out it was because my dog was in pain.
Anyway, I spent $1,200 at the emergency vet. They weren’t finding anything. They called in a ‘specialist’ to look at her and he duplicated some of the lab tests as he wanted to have them sent to a different lab. All the tests came back pointing to problems with my dog’s pancreas. The next step would have been to do an expensive ultra sound to ‘try’ to figure out what to do next. I contacted Dr. Carol as I knew her PAAWS products had helped my mom’s dog a few years back. I sent her a copy of Harley’s lab results. She looked them over and offered her advice free of charge. She saved me the expense of the ultra sound. She instructed me to feed Harley a home-made pet diet made of brown rice, boiled chicken, peas and sent me some of her pet products (Probiotics and Digest-Zymes) to sprinkle on her food.
I wasn’t sure if Harley would eat it because she tends to be a bit picky. She not only ate Dr. Carol’s home-made diet, she was wanting MORE. I took a sigh of relief (that she was eating)!! Harley has also started on the PAAWS product and she LOVES them!!! Just before Harley got sick, I had recently opened a new bag of Iams Healthy Naturals (lamb meal and rice).
I asked Dr. Carol if she thought Harley got sick due to the Iams dog food. She believed the food was the culprit. I’ve always thought I was doing right by my pets to feed them what I thought was to be a ‘premium dog food. [This was before Iams announced the FDA recall of their dog food.] Dr. Carol has been educating me on what is and isn’t healthy. It would seem the healthiest pet food we can feed our furry family members is fresh home-made pet food meals we prepare for them ourselves. It is less expensive, nutritious and my dog loves it. Balancing out Harley’s meals with the PAAWS vitamins is easy and now thankx to Dr. Carol’s excellent advice and great pet products my dog won’t become a diabetic.
I’ve been cooking Harley’s food for the past week and using Dr. Carol’s products. I can honestly say that Harley is much better than she was prior to getting sick and it has only been a week. I’m excited to see such great results in such a short period of time.
My 8 year old Lab is acting like a puppy again!!! What could be more exciting? I can’t thank you enough, Dr. Carol! You were so generous with your time with the e-mail correspondence and the phone calls. You and your PAAWS products are just awesome!!
