Reggie (11) is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that started on a raw food diet 3.5 years old.
Reggie is a participant in the Long Living Pets Raw feeding Study.
“Was a healthy active little boy and then developed chronic pancreatitis at age 3.5. After the second flare, we switched to raw food. No flare-ups since. His weight went from 24 lbs to under 11 lbs at height of his battle with pancreatitis. He recovered and has sent competed at Masters level in agility, rally, is an active Dog Scout, and is a certified therapy dog. He has been diagnosed within last year with a grade 3-4 heart murmur. I feed home mix raw using Chinese principles of cooling and warming foods to balance his diet. Since the diagnosis of his murmur, we have made his protein mix heavier on the organ meat to build up his balance for his heart and liver.”
I posting this to share that this serious condition can also be resolved with a raw food diet. I have seen this before. Most vets will be against this approach some even claim it will kill the dog. I’m not saying you should do this, I’m just sharing. Please do your own research. You will not find many stories like this because few dare to try. To me personally, feeding raw makes total sense I that would be my approach if any of my pets came down with this. But then again I already feed raw and I have not seen this condition in a raw fed dog.
This is one of my favorite stories since this dog, in my opinion, will not be alive today if not switched to a raw food diet
