Premium Pet Foods – Real Stories #1
Hearty Pet will be sharing stories from our customers about their decisions to buy premium pet foods and the results they have seen. The stories are truly inspiring. Enjoy the reading
To Whom it May Concern:
In March of 2004 we learned that one of our cats, Miss Weezer, had diabetes.
I read as much as I could about the disease in cats and came to the conclusion that, since cats are obligate carnivores, I would remove as many of the carbohydrates from her diet as possible. I started by cooking chicken, beef, fish for her and eventually found Wellness canned cat foods.
At that time, it was difficult to find premium (or any other) cat food with out grains or rice. Wellness fit the bill and it is a large part of her diet to this day. She especially likes Turkey and Salmon. We were able (with our vet’s supervision) to gradually reduce insulin over the years and, as of July 12, 2007, she is insulin free. If you’ve ever had a diabetic animal, you know that this is huge–not only for her, but us!
Our vet thinks that this development is, in large part, to her tightly controlled diet. Wellness cat food is a great product and I’m happy to have discovered it.
I also appreciate your fine customer service, quick shipping and great specials–including free shipping periodically. It has been a pleasure to do business with you and I hope to continue in the future.
I’m hopeful that this story will be helpful to other pet owners with diabetic animals.
Laura and Miss Weezer
