Shumai is a Survivor!

Our dog, Shumai, a 13-year-old Shih Tzu rescue, was diagnosed with Polycythemia Vera, a rare blood cancer back in March. There is really only one form of chemotherapy treatment. She rejected the treatment, lost most of her hair, and lost a significant portion of her body weight as she refused to eat pretty much anything... except her Fresh is Best Duck Heart Bites. In addition, she developed vestibular disease which also affected her appetite due to the nausea from the vertigo-like symptoms. While it has been a long and trying 7 months as we have dialed in a treatment to which she has responded and she now is showing many signs of recovery, we very much believe that without the steady food source from her Duck Heart Bites, she may not have survived. She now eats a high protein diet with regularity and the duck hearts remain a key part of her diet. She has put on a lot of the weight she has lost and has regrown most of her hair. We just wanted to send a heartfelt thank you for your high quality product and genuinely believe it was critical in helping our dog (and ourselves) through a very difficult year. Thank you!
