Portia...Puppy to Adult
Portia is a 15 Month Wheaten Terrier. Portia has just made the transition from Valp Lamm & Ris (puppy) to Lamm & Ris adult recipe. Portia loves Husse, she started out on a lower grade food and her mother found Husse at a community event and learned how easy it is to make a healthy lifestyle for her.
“Portia has a much better coat that has a shinier look rather than her old matte look. Portia has even been better in her overall behavior, she is more fun and loving, nothing is better than when I rub the back of her head and I stop, she grabs my arm and pulls it so I can continue. Portia is our little angel and Husse has only made her more of an angel. Every morning she brings me her husse bowl and is ready for more Lamm & Ris.” ~ Lisa
I recently had a voice message (that I will save forever) stating that this caller had a Bull Dog and Husse saved his life. The bull dog was suffering from a condition that was causing pustules and sores all over this poor guys body. His owner described his feet as “club feet” the sores were so bad he could not walk on his feet. The dog was in such miserable pain the owner considered putting him to sleep because the dog was just in agony and nothing was working to make him better. Then a friend gave her a bag of this dog food she had never heard of called “Husse Optimal”. Amazingly she started to see improvements in the sores, slowly they were clearing up and even his feet were beginning to be tolerable. Today “Biggy Smalls” runs to his owner Rhonda and she says it makes her cry almost every time. Rhonda now believes that Biggy has a high intolerance for artificial colors and flavors. When he eats other commercial foods it is as though his system is trying to expel the unnatural dyes etc and these sores form. This picture of him today (almost completely healed) came with the attached testimonial.
“Optimal completely saved and transformed my Bull Dogs life. Biggy’s feet were hard, and calloused from the sores he had all over his body. He was in so much agony most of the time and he could barely stand to walk on his “club feet”. I got this bag of Optimal and it just all started to change. The sores began to heal, even on his feet. His coat got soft and shiny and his face showed that he was not miserable anymore. Now this guy runs across the yard to me and it makes me cry because he is so far from where he was.”
Sparkles was born in 2004.
In 2008 when Lani was volunteering at rescue event, she discovered that they were looking for someone to take Sparkles "just for the night" because Sparkles was just found on the street and there was no room in any of the shelters.
Right away Lani and her husband thought Sparkles was a great dog and decided to adopt her.
The vet said she was in fine health: no worms, etc. and the rescue group had her spayed.
However, in 2011, Sparkles began limping. Lani took her to the vet and it was discovered that Sparkles had Valley Fever and began medication right away. She was recovering from the Valley Fever after a few months on the medication, however, her limping got worse. After an x-ray, it was discovered that Sparkles had a mass in her back leg joint. The vet recommended having her leg amputated and after great consideration, Lani decided that was the best thing for Sparkles.
Unfortunately, Lani and her husband felt so bad for Sparkles after this horrific procedure that they began “sneaking” her treats and she gained ten pounds...she went from 30 pounds to 40 pounds. It was increasingly difficult for Sparkles to get around because of the weight gain and losing a leg. She just couldn’t get the weight off because she couldn’t move around well.
Sparkles tried two different kinds of diet food prescribed by the vet...the first one she wouldn't even eat and the second one did nothing to help her lose weight.
Lani says, “Fortunately for Sparkles we found Husse Optimal Light! She began to lose weight almost right away, which made it easier for her to get around on her three legs. Her coat improved and she loved the taste. She would start barking at dinner time for her Husse! Which she has never done!”
