We had a German Shepard named Kelcee that stole our hearts when we rescued her from the German Shepard rescue in Las Vegas. She was standing with each front leg in a bucket of water trying to cool off in the heat of summer. There were over 200 dogs, all outside in over 100-degree temperatures. It was hard to choose since we wanted to take them all. Kelcee was smart, gentle and calm.
As time went on, we all gave her love and attention to earn her trust. She decided my husband was her human and she attached herself to him. We took her everywhere with us. We got her trained & she was a very well behaved dog. She also had some health issues we had to learn about. Over time vets were starting to give up on her. We wouldn’t give up until we found a way to make her comfortable.
Kelcee had many food "allergies" that we later learned to be food sensitivities that cause an allergic response. Due to the food sensitivities, she was constantly itching and licking her paws to the point of creating bald spots. Her skin was always bright red and her coat was course with flaky skin. When we would pet her, you could see her skin crawl. Since none of the professionals we went to had any answers for us to correct the problems, she was prescribed a cocktail of meds that would only mask the symptoms and shut down the immune system. After a short period of time, those medications cut Kelcee's life short.
We lost Kelcee to cushings disease and kidney failure on Sept 15, 2018. She was believed to be 10-12 years old. We loved her like we love our children. We spent many days and many dollars on getting her help, treatments and keeping her comfortable. She lived the best life we could give her with the guidance we had. We now know that we could have given her a healthy life through nutrition and natural supplements had we known then what we know now. Nutrition and natural healing are the root to optimal health.
Because of Kelcee, and all the people that we met along the way, we were inspired to help the dogs and cats that suffer with ailments. We decided to get more education on food and supplements so that we can help the dogs out there like Kelcee. We take great pride in finding the right pet food to keep your fur baby healthy and happy. We want to make the cat’s and dog’s world a better place!
