|Lakotah, was diagnosed with severe osteochondrosis of the hocks at age 1.5 years (severe arthritis). It was heartbreaking to see my pup who desperately wanted to run on the beach suffer such pain as a result. Almost a year subsequent to that diagnosis she suffered from mange, coprophagia and a host of other issues. In an ongoing effort to help her arthritis I happened to discover what was in the commercial food I had been feeding both my girls. It was unsettling.
It didnt take me long to switch my dogs over to a home-cooked diet, but, co-incidentally, it wasnt until I did some further research and began to feed them a raw, grain-free diet that Lakotahs life improved dramatically. In fact, Lakotah can now run on the beach to her hearts content and all the way around she's a happier, healthier hound!
