Healthy, happy pet families
Pets: Donut and Mia
All 3 of my dogs have been on Big Dog since 8 weeks of age and absolutely thrived, but I noticed my Pomeranian, Donut, would get really bad indigestion and itchy, smelly skin, feet and ears. After some trial and error we figured out he is allergic to chicken! I switched him over to the Sensitive Skin, as I love that it’s chicken and beef free and made with fish. Combining the Sensitive Skin with the Big Dog Probiotic has done my little boy wonders and he’s living his very best, un-stinky life!
Pet: Chaos, Maltese cross
Matthew's story: One of my dogs, Chaos, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer growing on the right side of his muzzle, and by the time we got him in for surgery, he was given a pretty poor diagnosis. After a difficult surgery,followed by a few more surgeries, and a few days recovering and not eating, I had to find something he could chew with his new mouth, minus a lot of teeth.
I came across Big Dog at the local pet store, and it seemed to tick all the boxes. Big Dog was one of the first things Chaos even considered eating, and he’s loved it ever since. Besides a few weird looks at the dog park, Chaos has been 18 months’ cancer free, and is living his best life, although he does have trouble keeping his tongue in his mouth, I’ve been recommending Big Dog to friend and family ever since.
Pet: Parker, Toy Poodle
Wendy's story: My boy Parker has had shocking health issues. The vets thought he had Cushing’s Disease. After testing they said he did not, but could not tell me why he was losing hair, was pot-bellied and couldn’t hold his wee. He had really bad arthritis. And we thought about putting him to sleep. A friend suggested Big Dog maybe 6 month ago now and the change in our little guy is amazing. His hair grew back, he stopped sucking up water like he was dying of thirst, he doesn’t pee as often and his arthritis has improved about 50%. It has even stopped the thick, smelly tear staining. Parker is 14 now and I know for the time he has left, he will only be eating this. I just wish I had found it sooner. I feel it really saved Parker's life. He really is a changed dog.
Pets: Chelsea, Australian Cattle Dog and Max, American Staffordshire Terrier
Since changing from dry and processed food to Big Dog, our two dogs have been given fantastic health reports from the vet. Chelsea (Australian Cattle Dog) now has a beautiful thick coat, shiny eyes and fantastic teeth. Max (American Staffordshire Terrier) was diagnosed with a kidney problem and his levels were under normal since he was 5 months old. Since changing in the last 12 months and since his last test, his levels have come back to a mid-normal range. The vet could not believe how the levels improved in a dog of middle age. He wanted to know what I was feeding him and what was actually in the food. He also said his kidneys are obviously coping very well with the food and amount I am feeding him. I cannot stress to family and friends how good your products are. It just makes so much more sense than feeding them something that’s not natural. I am so glad we made the switch, as my dogs are a walking example of how changing to a raw diet actually improved their health. - Tania
Pet: Gary, Pug
Our pug, Gary, had been on a vet recommended kibble diet for all of his life, he also had a ‘seasonal itch’ and had steroids often for the itch. Our baby started to put on weight and eventually developed pancreatitis. He was put on a very strict kibble prescription diet, which gave him very little joy. He didn’t lose weight on the recommended feeding amount so we gradually reduced this and at half the recommended feeding amount we eventually saw him lose some weight (500g in a year). Thank Dog we heard about Big Dog Wellbeing! First of all, I have never seen Gary more excited for his meal, secondly he started losing weight and now maintains his ideal weight! He snores less, breathes easier, he has more energy and could walk for longer, we rarely have those dreaded anal glands issues that are common with pugs, and no more itchy skin since he started eating Big Dog 18 months ago. We’re so thrilled that we found Big Dog for our little man because it honestly makes him happy and keeps him healthy.
