TYPE : German Shepherd
ISSUE : Bladder Issue
Some more hope on the canine front, this time with this very loveable German Shepherd.
He had been experiencing issues with his bladder on more or less a weekly basis for a number of years. After a number of visits, expensive visits, to the Vet unfortunately the last appointment (approximately 3 months ago) was extremely sad news not only for Squaddie but also his owner and his family in that it had been suggested that if he was to experience this again it would be kinder to put the animal down.
The owner, as you can imagine was distraught at this news and asked us to look in to him in the hope that we could come up with something. We scanned him and his chemical balance and quickly
realised that he had a reaction or intolerance to certain foods and liquids. We immediately created a diet sheet specifically for his own needs and asked the owners to keep him out of all the drawers that he could open, as well as keep him off all the foods listed under negatives. The only irritant for the owner is that they had to buy a child lock so that this very clever 4 legged canine couldn't open the drawers to steal his desire as a treat ad lib!
The owner has very kindly forwarded a sentence in the hope that her dogs story will give others the chance of this form of treatment, before they might have to be put to sleep.
" squaddie is now 3yrs old. he has suffered with bladder problems since young. the outlook wasnt good. however, Judi recommended a complete change of diet. following the diet, squaddie has only had 1 setback. he is a different dog. i cant thank judi enough", if you are struggling, give your animal this chance"
