Dog Testimonial

Rinnie, a shepherd mix with hemangiosarcoma (most aggressive canine cancer where blood vessels finally hemorrhage and bleed out). Vets gave 60 days to live, see remarkable joyful journey to 7 more months:

This is a compilations of emails from Rinnie’s owners who I met frequently to work with them on buying Rinnie quality, happy, time with her family. Permission was given by the owners to share Rinnie’s journey to give other pet owners hope. – Nancy Seymour

DAY 17 on supplement:

Nancy,

Today is Day 37 since her surgery and Day 17 on your supplements.  Still on bottle one.  She seems long recovered from the surgery itself and presently shows no signs of the hemangiosarcoma, which is a blood vessel cancer, though she does have one small nodule on her leg that we noticed for the first time on Mother’s Day. She is high energy, taking long walks, running, playing with her toys, chasing birds, squirrels, etc., joyful and seems normal in every way. She is eating well and is usually very eager for the next meal.  No problems with acceptance of the supplement over/in her food–not having to pill-pocket as I thought we may. She looks beautiful and has her pre-surgery/pre-illness spark about her. So far, so good. 

Halfway through 2nd jar of supplement:

I was thinking about you earlier today. We are approaching half way on the second supplement bottle. I appreciated your earlier email and this one too. You are kind in checking up on us. Emotionally we are level now and not freaking out about Rinnie’s diagnosis. We’ve come to the conclusion that none of us has the guarantee of tomorrow, so just enjoy this day and hope for the best. We truly are enjoying her and each other. Rinnie is doing remarkably well. She seems very normal and energetic. Nothing seems wrong at all with her. I know I’m not supposed to be counting the days, but day 53 after the surgery is today and it seems that one lump on her rear leg/stomach area is the only change I have noticed at all and it seems stable, no changes in it.  She’s happy as can be. Just playful, joyful, her sweet and active self. My daughter bought me a little fold up water bowl to take on our walks that works great. We are making her come in more during the heat and keeping us all cool. Your tips are all good and appreciated. And yes, we love the Furminator too. Appreciate you Nancy. Thanks again for being such a kind person. 

5 month mark:

Hi Nancy,

Rinnie is doing well. It will be five months on Wednesday, Sept. 14th that she has survived. I have a senior physical scheduled with her Vet on Monday. She has had no problems whatsoever, eats well, plays, is active, just a delightful happy little friend. We are still on the product and will stay on it. I will be interested to see what the Vet has to say about Rinnie on Monday, as she and the Oncologist had said Rinnie’s life expectancy was two months without Chemo and about four months with and it will be five months Wednesday. While our Vet did say all this, she did say that the hemangiosarcoma was so aggressive that if she lived twelve months, it would mean they got it early enough to have gotten it all, which is very, very rare. I was reading your ingredient list on the jar.

 You must have worked your bottom off on that supplement ingredient list. Wow. So informative. I will go back to her vet in December when Rinnie needs her next required booster.  Since these immunizations depress immunity, we didn’t want to give it to Rinnie early.  While she was pleased, very happy that Rinnie had made it to five months without chemo when the Oncologist had projected two months without chemo, she wasn’t doing cartwheels, didn’t seem as optimistic as we are at all.  She said the two months was an average, some less, some more. She said that even if cancer had not spread before Rinnie’s surgery,  and was confined to the spleen and the spleen tumor, even if one or two or three cells alone were left in the blood, they would potentially grow and spread, as this is aggressive, very aggressive stuff.  She said that if Rinnie went two years, she might think they had it all and no cells were left, which would be unlikely.  She said they had this greyhound on supplements such as these and that nutrition would surely help and keep doing it for Rinnie, but most likely it is genetic and will show up at some point.

6½ month mark:

Nancy,

She is having more frequent interspersed good and bad days. Yesterday was bad but today good. Loving every day with her. Six and a half months now. Thanks so much for asking. Hope all is well with you. 

7 month mark:

Hi Nancy,

She saw the vet on monday. Had lost a little weight. Her breathing was heavier. Vet thinks cancer is progressing. Had a seizure on friday. Lost legs for short while but regained. Last week and this week could hardly keep any food down. Throwing up many times. Refused most food. Was pitiful. Refused supplement in anything even roast beef. We discontinued the supplement, tramadol, nausea medication everything and just make sure she has water and food out at all times. Thought we were losing her then yesterday and today have been beautiful. She is clear eyes, spunky, happy and eating a tiny bit, so up and down. 

Rinnie passes a few days later:

We did get your beautiful card and appreciate your sentiment, your concern for us. This week is better than last. This week we have gotten past our sorrow, pain so deep that we feared dying ourselves of broken hearts. It is easier, but not easy yet. She was our canine child. She will always be with us. Thank you for your product and buying time with our Rinnie and for your constant care and attention to help her and us. We strongly believe you bought us precious and quality time with her. You may use these letters to give other pet owners hope at what great nutrition can do under the worst of conditions.

blaze

BLAZE, a black & white Border Collie with an improved coat and quality of life:

When he was 10 years old, Blaze was diagnosed with advanced cancer of the nose and given 3-6 months to live. As of April, the cancer had spread to the bone between his nasal cavities and to the bone separating his nasal cavity from his brain. 

At the beginning of the fifth month after diagnosis, Blaze is still very energetic.  He loves to go for walks every night and can be hard to keep up with.  He will go for other walks during the day any time I think it is cool enough outside to go.  He still absolutely loves his meals, and his coat is still shinier than it has ever been. It is amazing to me that after this much time, he still feels so good and has so much energy. I feel that Nancy’s Superfoods Supplement has extended Blaze’s life and has certainly given him a better quality of life for his remaining time. It has also allowed us to enjoy a very beloved dog for longer than we would have been able to otherwise.

Processed with MOLDIV

My 12-year old dog, Emmy, is whipping cancer. She’s  transformed over the last four weeks. Here’s how we’re doing it.

After a kidney cancer diagnosis (Tubular adenocarcinoma of the kidney), and a less than one year survival prognosis — if we removed the kidney and followed with chemo — we decided to fight it with science and nutrition. The goal, no suffering, and good, happy days for as long as possible. So far, we’re winning. At diagnosis (4/12/16), Emmy had periodic vomiting, very little appetite, and lethargy. She was losing weight, was disengaged and mostly wanted to be alone, which is very unusual for my girl. I knew she didn’t feel good. Was she leaving? My first goal was to see if I could get her eating again.

 

The day after diagnosis I changed her diet from Simple Formula Wellness dog food (which I believe to be a high quality food) to an all human diet plus a superfood supplement. We started with scrambled eggs cooked in a tiny bit of coconut oil. She went for it. My friend and animal healer, Nancy Seymour, inventor of the superfood supplement I’m using, is using her years of nutrition experience and guiding me every step of the way. Her appetite immediately improved, but she was losing weight, down to 52 pounds. So we increased the carbs. I alternate oatmeal and brown rice at meals, always sweet potatoes, plus a small amount of protein. A snack can be cottage cheese mixed with canned pumpkin. Peanut butter on mashed banana. I make greek yogurt blueberry pops as a superfood treat. We limit the protein to no more than 20% of her diet so we don’t tax the kidneys. Anything that isn’t processed (meaning — you can see it in her poop!), I put in the blender. Easier to eat, easier for her body to digest. Every nutrient of the food is used by her system.
To be clear, this isn’t a table scraps diet. It’s a low salt, good oils (coconut and olive), good fats, good carbs and a controlled amount of protein. It took me about a week to get the hang of it. Our results so far: She’s jumping up and down when it’s time to eat. She rolls around in the backyard. We walk 2-3 times a day. That doesn’t look like a dog that’s dying to me. The cancer is still there, but she isn’t suffering. She’s happy, engaged and making the most of every day. It makes me think, if we can transform a dog with cancer in just a few weeks using whole foods and nutritional supplementation, shouldn’t we be considering that option for people in the same predicament?

Nancy, you have been such a gift to her and us for all these years. We are so grateful for you! 

#TeamEmmy

 Vet visit update: Dr. Wages: “When I saw you were coming in for a bump on her gum I thought what?! This dog is a miracle. She should’ve been dead a long time ago. She looks great. Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it. I don’t believe she is in any pain. She looks like an old dog, she doesn’t look like an old dog with cancer.” You should’ve seen Emmy dancing around, smiling, so chipper this morning!

Holiday update: Check out our video of Emmy enjoying Christmas!

Update: Emmy is now 13, who last April gave up eating and connecting with family. Shows what a great owner can go with nutrition coaching and my supplement. Still going and going. (Renal cancer tumor now size of an orange).

LUCKY, the puppy that was struggling with cancer and a poor quality of life:

Lucky was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her  front leg and vets suggested two months to live without chemo or an extra month or two with it. I decided to give her puppy kibble with your supplement. Her energy rose, she played, engaged with the family, and was clearly happy. She was has been this way now 17 months on this plan . Thank you so much for your help, care, and product.

UPDATE:  I hope that your business is going well. I’ve started my puppy Charlie on the supplement and plan to be a loyal customer forever! Thanks for all you helped us with for Lucky as we definitely got extra time with her because of you! Lucky died Feb 8th after her long battle with her osteosarcoma. She had stopped eating the weekend of Jan 30th, then the weekend she died she started spitting out her pain medicine. It was a hard decision but I ended up taking her to the pet emergency clinic about a mile from our home here in Durham and had her euthanized. The staff there were unbelievably kind and she had a peaceful death and I was with her.

Strangely, we had put in adoption papers at the animal shelter for Charlie (he’s about 8-9 months old) the weekend Lucky stopped eating and he came home with us the day before she died. I like to think she wanted it that way so we wouldn’t miss her so much.

I took some beautiful pictures of her that weekend, it was warm and sunny and she spent a lot of time outdoors. I’ll try to figure out how to email some of them to you.

Hope your business is going well. I plan to be a loyal customer forever! Thanks for all you helped us with for Lucky-we definitely got extra time with her because of you!

Cat Testimonials

Quincey, Hope, and Lilly:

My cats are all rescues and young and healthy.  I began with my first kitty, a male orange and white tabby named Quincey) on the supplement after I rescued him from a local hotel where he was living. He was about 10 months old and will be 7 in July, 2016.  I sprinkle it on his mostly dry grain free kibble with a small wet food topper. He inhales it.  Hope, my rescue black and white tuxedo, will be 3 years old August, 2016.  He has been on the supplement for 2.5 years, and he readily eats it the same way as Quincey.  Their coats are very shiny and healthy and full looking.  They have energy to play after meals yet are calm in nature.  They have never had a veterinarian illness and get their annual exams.

 

Lilly is my white kitty who was a rescue given to me by a foster.  She had been declawed and escaped from her home or was dumped. Lilly is my extreme finicky eater.  She came to me eating Friskies and Fancy Feast of which I would not tolerate that diet.  After a weaning her off that diet, she finally has found about 5 foods of grain free kibble she eats.  I do best with her on wet food and just a pinch mixed in.  I am trying a new process of gradually mixing it in her dry kibble.  Her coat is clean and no matting and she also has had no illnesses like my boys.  She will be 7 years July, 2016. 

 

Knowing that younger, healthy pets should be the very ones to begin my supplement, I give them half doses.  I want to give them the opportunity for a great quality of life with vitality, a great coat, and lifelong wellness.  I know as they approach 8-10 years, they will have great joint health and mobility.  I also know the immune support of all of the superfoods will make an enormous difference to their quality of life.

Jazz, a domestic cat with kidney failure and no energy:

Our cat, Jazz, is 15 years old. She has been suffering from kidney failure for the past year – her kidneys were operating at only 25%. She has been lethargic, not eating well, and drinking lots of water. We started her on your nutritional supplement about a month ago and noticed that she has become more energetic and her appetite has also really greatly improved.

Further, she was at the vet and they ran her tests again to check on the progression of her kidney function. The vet called us while we were on vacation to tell us that her kidney function was much improved.
