Our ten-year-old lab was declining in health. Our primary veterinarian wasn’t able to provide a diagnosis, and arranged a consult with the vet school. The vet school suspected possible early renal disease-labwork indicated anemia, glucose and protein in his urine, and he also presented with conjunctivitis. He was drinking water excessively and urinating frequently. His fur was dull and thinning, with some obvious bare spots. We were eventually referred to Dr. Laura who met with us and prescribed a customized, homemade diet to replace the prescription food which he had been on for nearly a year for weight management. Within weeks, the results were dramatic. His fur was growing back in shiny and thick and his subsequent lab results were all within the normal range. Fluid intake returned to normal as did his potty habits. Banks just turned thirteen last month and he continues to thrive on his homemade diet! We credit Dr. Laura for saving his life and are forever grateful.
