Marley is my 8 year old three-legged boxer. When he was 7 he developed a large tumour in his front paw which led to the amputation. He was always fed on raw Mountain Dog Food, however around 4 months post surgery he started having digestional problems, and was losing weight very rapidly.
Mulitple trips to the vet and thousands of dollars later they discovered that he has a severe vitamin B12 deficiency. I started cooking his dog food, a recipe that included mainly porc, potatoes and supplements. This seemed to work well for the time being, however just a few months ago it started acting up again. I tried feeding him porc exclusively, which showed no improvement, and then just potatoes, to see if he was intolerant to the food. Potatoes seemed to calm his stomach, and then I tried pure rice for a few days which really did the trick.
I asked my vet if i should change recipes, however she encouraged me to slowly reintroduce his old diet back into his system. Within 2 days he was back to and upset stomach, which is what prompted me to try vegan food.
I found this website and thought that I had nothing to lose. I received my bag, and within 2 days of freeding the Maximum Life Evolution food his stomach was completely fine. I’m on my third 40 lbs bag and everything is going perfectly! :)
