The first time Lena was introduced to feeding RAW was at a UKC Weight
Pull competition by her friend Lori, many years ago. At that
time, Lori had 3 gorgeous red-nose pit bulls; Rocko, Tara and Fury. The
first thing that stood out to Lena was their coats, very shiny and smooth. It was very hard to believe that their healthy coats
were only one small benefit of feeding the RAW diet.
When Lena rescued Diesel, he had severe allergies and would spend
hours biting and gnawing at his skin until it was bleeding. Prescribed
Meds, baths and crèmes were all a temporary, minor relief. His coat was
very dull, the shedding continued all year round with uncontrollable
dandruff and he was always uncomfortable and in pain. A permanent solution was needed.
At first, the idea of feeding raw bones seemed outrageous. Could he choke? Would Lena’s picky puppy even try it? Lori brought a few chicken backs over for Diesel to try and sure enough he chomped them down with pleasure.
That night Lena spent hours researching
all about feeding RAW. She decided to give it a try under guidance of
her friend Lori. Within two weeks she noticed results. Diesel was no
longer producing disgusting, huge piles of putrid waste. His stool
volume was much smaller, almost odorless and crumbled like sand within hours. His
natural energy level increased and within 2-3 weeks his coat was
beginning to glisten like Lori’s dogs had. Because of the RAW bones,
his teeth became pearly white and there was no need for dental
cleanings. He lost the unhealthy fat around his ribs; he rarely had any
eye discharge and his allergies were slowly improving.
Lena continued to feed Diesel RAW (because let's be honest, once you see such incredible results after struggles with conventional medicine you just cannot fathom switching back), nothing prepared her
for the day his Veterinarian called. His vet was very concerned as it had been almost a year since Diesel had been in the office.
The RAW diet had cured his allergies and he no longer itched or scooted
his behind; he was spending all that time being a dog, playing with toys
and bothering the birds outside.
Diesel competed in the canine sport of UKC Weight Pull and had won many titles. His most weight pulled to date was 5,300lbs. Yes, you read that right, over 2 tons! Diesel was not an amazing athlete because of the RAW Diet, but we truly believe that the RAW Diet had provided Diesel an opportunity to be healthy enough to be so GREAT at his favorite sport and any other daily activity/challenge he encountered.
A few years later little Kilo came into Lena’s life. Kilo was a 4 week old, sick, little puppy. At the time, Lena had no idea what to feed a puppy that age. She immediately pulled a Chicken Back out of the freezer and let it thaw. She put the Chicken Back into a zip lock bag and beat it with a hammer until the meat was mushy, but still held together by the bone. She placed it on a towel outside and watched Kilo hungrily ripped little chunks off as if she has never seen food before, this behavior has continued into her adult life.
Since then, Lena has had the opportunity to help many struggling with
allergies and other minor health issues. She has watched many dogs
benefit from their renewed lifestyle and decided to dedicate her
business to RAW and helping pets and their owners get the most out of
one life time.
“It’s very hard to believe someone
else’s promise alone, but it’s amazing when you begin to see the results
with your own eyes in a matter of 1-2 weeks. RAW diet has completely
changed Diesels life and the lives of many of my clients. Not everyone
comes to me because their fury babies have some sort of a medical
condition; most just want a healthy immune system and longer life
expectancy for their furry best friends. Thanks to this diet, I have not
only managed to keep two very beautiful, healthy and happy dogs, but
saved thousands of dollars in medical expenses and have many clients who
have similar miracle stories to tell about feeding RAW. I hope
everyone sees the amazing benefits. Seeing is the key to believing!”
