almost 2 years ago my chihuahua mix, AL B (named after my dad ALbert Baker) escaped out fenced property to defend me from a pibull. the pit was on our property on a 20+ feet extended leash (illegal in california) but the owner was too far away to control him. he tore a hole in AL B’s trachea, fractured his hyoid bone and did nerve and muscle damage to his neck. we rushed AL B to the ER and they didnt expect him to live. he had difficulty eating so i put feels good, soul food, gut sense and green min in goats milk for days. he finally recovered but with some permanent damage that we treat on a daily basis. he continues to protect me every day…

10 years ago, on-line searching for a forever friend on Pet-finder, I noticed the most precious black lab puppy. I clicked on the page and read there were some 5-6 puppies rescued but the ferral mom and one puppy escaped rescue. I had to go visit, but a large snow storm was predicted to arrive the day we were scheduled to meet them. The organization allowed us to go the day prior due to the forecast. There the puppies were, all freshly bathed and eager to play. I chose Mia because she was lower key than the most aggressive one, but not submissive. She walked over to me and curled up in my lap and I new then that it was going to be a beautiful friendship. She and I attended puppy socialization classes and teenage obedience classes to which she graduated top of the class! From puppy breath to stiff hips, she has been the most loyal, loveable friend anyone could ask for. With age comes lumps and bumps…she has several lypomas (benign fatty skin tumors) but one bump felt much harder. I had it checked by our vet and it was reported as malignant (cancerous). I made the informed decision to have it surgically removed and tested. I also noticed the same week that she had some loose bowel movements, which turned into vomiting and severe diarrhea over the next days. The vet x-rayed her to rule out an obstruction… it was normal. They then did an ultrasound of her abdomen which revealed multiple lesions in her liver, spleen and left adrenal gland. The vet told me it was cancer (not having done any histological testing on said lesions). I now have to make the decision to either put her down or help heal her. Obviously, it was the latter!! I have never used Dr. Dobias’ Essentials, but am praying that this will help my sweet girl get rid of these tumors that are making her so sick. I can not imagine my days without my best friend.

Mischa is my daughter and means the world to me. She was recently diagnosed with Addison’s disease and I’m trying everything I can to make her last years comfortable and meaningful. She had a rough start in life coming from a puppy mill and she deserves the very best in life. I love her so much and will be devastated when it’s her time to go.

Maya is a 9 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback/terrier mix. She is the love of our life. Recently after an xray, I found out that she has extreme inflammation and arthritis along her spine. The vet said it was the worse he has seen in his 20 year career. He didnt know how she was walking. The vet is only offering pain killers. I need to do something else! Please help.
Maya is everything to us because she is pure love and such joy.

My Lucy Lou just turned 17 yrs old this month. This little fur girl has showed me & my husband a love that we never thought in a million years could have. We stumbled upon her at 9 weeks old at a park 1 month after we married. This couple was walking with this cute Shihtzu and we were instantly drawn to her and asked if we could pet their puppy. After talking we gave them our contact info as they were going to call us with the name of the person that they had gotten Lucy as we were interested maybe getting a Shihtzu from the same breeder. Few weeks past they called and they had discuss that having 2 dogs & traveling would be a little more difficult for them than they thought. They remembered how much we were loving on their puppy. They thought hard about the situation and called us to see if we wanted to adopt Lucy from them. I mean I was in tears because it was like that day in the park just walking noticing this cute puppy that she was put in our path for a reason. We could not have children so she was brought into our lives at the perfect time. The rest is history she is really our furbaby and I don’t know what I would do without her in our lives. She is the only living creature that I have ever nurtured and I wish she could live 100 more years! I’m thankful that we have had her this long she has changed our lives forever.

Surprises come in all different packages,that’s our girl Rowan to a tee. She came to us from a lovely lady via FB pet site, as I had been looking far and wide for a smaller dog. In our neck of the woods there was no such to be found. I tried very hard to adopt, only to have been either late or just unlucky. Year and a half and out of the blue a lady got a hold of me, that’s when this tiny ball red ball came into my life. Yorkie cross poodle, a charming little flame of happiness and a character to brighten anyone’s day. She fit right into our lives like a missing jigsaw puzzle. She’s by my side as we do everything together, bike ride, motorcycle ride, hike, shop, and travel. She is an intelligent lil’ girl and pretty much pipes into my feelings, she knows how to soothe an anxious soul. We have effortlessly finished three class of doggo training classes and will proceed to agility and intermediate training classes. This little spark has brought a bright ball of light to my life and has lifted my spirits in a healthier way. I had suffered from anxiety and could not focus in the busy world, workplace was chaotic and caused stress in my life. I had workplace injury and decided to leave due to my health, was the best move last year. Right timing for a little spirit to enter my life and that’s just what the universe prevailed. Eight months later, almost stress free, anxiousness has merely balanced itself out due to the furry little company I keep. There is so much having lil’ Rowan in my life that life would be less without her. Her eyes hold so much wisdom, that I feel she is an old soul that has been here before, now only to offer balance to another old soul like me. My companion, my friend, my scholar, my link in life.

One morning in October 2017, I was reviewing animal rescue pages, and saw a picture of a beautiful 5 years young, Olde English Bulldogge requiring rescuing. I told my wife Alesha about this dog I saw and she made some calls to the rescue agency while I was at work. That evening, the agency brought the dog over for a meet & greet, and we knew that Hera had just come home. She was so friendly and so excited, we wondered how such a dog could end up in a rescue agency. We would find out later how much socialization she lacked with other dogs, and bursts of aggressive displays towards certain breeds. But we both knew there was a gentle Goddess in her, just waiting to shine. Alesha has spent so much time with her, improving on displays in social settings. Hera is so very happy , and bounding with zeal now, which helps because we all like to play in the river! Her past is a chapter gone-by, and we look forward to our future adventures together.

Hope came to us in March 2014 her previous owner had set her on fire.She survived after spending 39 days in a 24hr emergency clinic. Followed by 6 months of bandage changes at her regular veterinarian.Hope inspired many to never give up on life.Although a cruel evil human intentionally hurt her she never showed a mean side. She openly trusted everyone involved in her care.She was burned over 90% of her body.She continues to inspire many. She remained healthy until October 3rd 2018 when she spiked a fever. She was taken to emergency clinic and spent several days trying to determine cause of fever. Finally after numerous tests she was diagnosed with auto immune disease and immune mediated arthritis. She has currently been switched to a raw diet and many vitamins and supplements.We have done hyperbaric sessions which have helped a alot.She does go to work with me daily which I work for a veterinarian 25 years now. I am constantly searching for the best vitamins and supplements available to help Hope.I have just ordered your recommendations.Look forward to trying.

My dog, Bear, is the epitome of resilience & forgiveness. He has taught me how to be a better person. He had a very rough start to his life & came to me at 5 months old when his family no longer wanted him. It was clear there was something wrong physically, so after many tests, he was diagnosed with Centro-nuclear myopathy. With good food, love, and patience, he has gained weight & learned to walk. He can now walk 1/4 mile without collapsing. He has the absolute best temperament that a human could ask for. He’s loving and wants to be close. He accepts other dogs, and cats, and all people. He is especially curious about little humans who meet him at eye level. His level of tolerance & forgiveness is beyond measure. He’s a gem. I won the lottery with him and I thank the universe every single day for this dog called Bear.

I have always loved animals and dogs are at the top of my list. A few years ago I was blessed to have a dog of my own when a friend was looking for someone to adopt one of their mini dachshund puppies. I never imagined how great it felt to raise a puppy. She was fuzz free, sweet, intelligent and super adorable. Bailey grew so fast and we thought we could adopt another puppy if there is someone looking for a new home for their puppy. Indeed there was someone who wanted their shar-pei puppy adopted. We thought about it and decided to take her in thinking that it would be as easy as our first. Saki was brought to us in a box, shivering, and skeleton thin. We imagined a cute, fluffy, energetic bundle of joy and instead, we got the complete opposite. We thought she was not going to make it. Early the following day we took her to the vet and found out how sick she was. Underweight, malnourished and nearly dehydrated she also has demodectic mange, digestive issues, ear infection and most of all trauma. As days pass we noticed that her trauma affected her a lot physically, emotionally and mentally. I would say that Saki is a dog with special needs. Yes, we adopted a dog with special needs. Every day seems like a new day with her. Within the day she gets to know us and the following day she does not recognize us. This went on for several months. I also had sleepless nights while staying up with her because of her anxiety. She is mostly awake 24/7. She suddenly growls or barks at nothing or run and leap from one place to another as if someone was going to attack her. She does not know how to play with Bailey. She slips when she runs and hits the wall because she doesn’t know how to stop when she’s about to hit something. The vet told us that her digestive issues and skin problems will be for the rest of her life and that her trauma may never be healed. It was tiring, it was frustrating and heartbreaking to see her and what she is going through every day. There are times when I want to give up but seeing Bailey trying to comfort Saki, trying to be patient with her and looking sad whenever Saki was feeling anxious gave me strength, patience, and perseverance to take care of Saki. When she was about 5 months old, she accidentally licked a poisonous frog. Her mouth started foaming, she was shivering and was having difficulty breathing. She never wanted to be held or touched, but that night I told might self I am going to get her even if she bites me, I will save her. Saki is now 2 years old, she still has her skin disease, she stinks so bad and she hates taking a bath but she knows her name, she knows who we are, she knows how to play and understands basic commands, she guards the house well and is not scared from guests, she is very careful with our new shih-tzu puppy (Brandy) and truly loyal to me. She is like my shadow, my tail, my stalker. She would wait for me and would not sleep until I sleep and continues to love me in spite of all the reprimanding she gets from me. It is not easy to raise her, but I can never imagine abandoning her. A dog with special needs has a special way of showing its love.

Jack came to us in September 2012, five months after we lost our first golden whom we had raised from a puppy. When Jack came to us through Golden Rescue he was almost 5 years old and was obviously very loved and well trained because he was and is a very polite boy. He is now 11 years old and just showing signs of arthritis .. until he sees a cat or has to have a chat with a neighbour dog. He has been my constant companion since I lost my husband in December and we have helped each other through our grief. Jack isn’t a cuddler but he’s always ready for some fusses and kisses and I love him more than I can say

I would love to add to her care as a friendly neighborly bonus.

Byron is one of those special souls that you only meet once in a great while. Since he was a puppy, he has never stopped wagging his tail or lovingly moving in close for a hug, When it comes to temperament, he certainly is the best. Byron is about to be four, and he still maintains that same sweet personality. Raised around other dogs and cats, he sure loves the bond he creates between him and his animal companions. When I first got Byron, I knew is was going to be the biggest commitment because he was the first dog that I had on my own. Before then, I lived at my parents’ house and shared dogs with four other people. I knew that getting Byron was going to mean learning true responsibility. I had to make a lot of sacrifices to ensure that his needs came first, and that meant not going out for long periods of time, making the best choices for his health and well-being, and fulfilling his emotional and social needs as well. What I gained in return is an unconditional bond that I doubt I will ever have again in my lifetime. I got a dog that loves me on my best and worst days, a dog that never gives me less than 100 percent, and a dog that cares more about my needs than his own. That, to me, is greater than any relationship I could imagine.

Our Westie Morgan has been so special to us, we had a one year old Westie named Bailey, and decided she needed a friend, I actually was connected to a rescue down south regarding an older Westie, but after reviewing my application, they didn’t think he’d be a good fit. They had actually taken in a very small 5 1/2 month old puppy that had been a Christmas present for 3 little kids, and need,es to say, besides being traumatized and abused by making her stay in her kennel for 12+ hours a day, her tail had been pulled and likely broke, since it can’t curve up over her back. We were so excited to get her, despite some issues she needed to get over and the challenge of potty training, since she was abused for going potty in the house. She settled in pretty quick, and in a week our older Westie finally excepted her. Flash forward 12 years. We had to put our older Westie down in November if 2017 due to complications of a brain tumor, I sure wish we would discovered you earlier. Now this last February 15th one week after getting home from a 6 week cross country trip with Morgan, i discovered a very small lump on her abdomen. The vet took a bunch of blood tests and it came back as a mast cell tumor. Since her liver enzymes were well over 100 points above normal, and she was running a slight temp, they put her on two different antibiotics, Benadryl and Denamarin for her liver. at her recheck 3 weeks later the tumor had shrunk and her liver enzymes were almost normal. 3 weeks later, I noticed that the lump had grown slightly larger, and within less than a week it had quadrupled in size and started bleeding. She was back at the vet last Friday to determine the next step,we also discussed thyroid issues since she has continued to gain weight despite being put Wellness Senior. She’s now scheduled for surgery May 6th.2019

Rowdy. Rowdy is quite simply, the furry light of my life. 8 years ago, I got sober. 7 years ago, I was in the market for a dog. I went to one of our local rescue groups (Austin Pets Alive!) and the first puppy I saw was Rowdy. I fell in love that day. I didn’t bother looking at any other dogs. Rowdy was an 8 week old puppy being fostered. He and his siblings had been tied up in pillowcases and thrown out of a moving vehicle on a busy freeway in San Antonio. I knew right then and there I would spoil this little furball and make up for the rough start he had in life.

My dog, Tucker means so much to me that I adopted my 2nd dog, Cooper so Tucker would have a companion. Both dogs mean so much to me that I make them their own food every week, I add fresh parsley and curcumin for health benefits. I only use all natural products on them; their shampoo is free of any harmful chemicals and I only use flea and tick collars that have essential oils and natural repellents in them, I never use chemical on them. I have a personal mobile groomer that comes to my home so they don’t have to suffer the stressful ness of going to a pet store to be groomed by strangers. I walk them several times a week, brush their teeth and make sure they have clean blankets on their beds. They also sleep in bed with me and my husband, that’s how much I love them, I take care of them like they are my own children.

My Chocolate Lab, Hannah, came to me when she was a yr old. She had been living in a backyard w/another smaller dog. I was still a little bummed having lost my Black Lab, Sasha, less than a yr before. Hannah has been renamed Hannah Banana by all those around town who know & love her. She has been a true life saver for me as I’m prone to depression & she certainly keeps me laughing & entertained. She has always been full of energy & healthy but recently was diagnosed with GOLPP but it doesn’t seem to keep her down. She was losing mobility in her rear legs so I began giving her CBD oil which has made a huge difference. She is pure love in a big brown body. I thank God every day for bringing her into my life.

Cowboy is my 13 yr old Jack Russell. He is my emotional support animal and has also been my best friend. I got him from a friend shortly after my Mother had passed. I was working with my friend and her husband at the time, helping out with their Jack russell ranch. I really did not want a dog of my own at that time, but when he was born Aug 26 2005….Well lets just say it was meant to be. He has a lot of color on his body, and that is not something breeders necessarily want. He was the smallest, most colorful and the last one born in a litter of 6. When he was cleaned up, I said awe he is the cutest Jack russell ever, my friend jokingly said that one he looks like a cow. ( because of all the color on his body) So I instantly began to look out for this lil guy. He has been my travel companion, hiking buddy, emotional support and all around best friend. I have had many family members and close friends die over these past 13 yrs and he has always been there for me, and we get through things together. He had an episode with a desert toad out in Az when he was 5, thought I was going to loose him then, but a great vet saved his life and our adventures continue. He is an amazing animal and friend. He is my Cowboy I also call him lil man.

Missy, Yorkie, all her life has been on gut sense.. her guts and intestines I think are in perfect health, she has never thrown up or had the other end acting up, never. Has had a sad but blessed life… she had a hip removal when she was 11 months old, lots of pain and slow recovery, caged up for 6 weeks while healing. She was such a brave little girl. Everything was good after about 6 months. Then when she was about 5 years old she suddenly was in major pain, no warning, pain meds, caged again for 4 weeks, still in pain. We got a scan done and found out she had IVDD.. she has had a spine operation but left her with nerve damage, so both her back legs are now very weak, I am thinking of a doggie wheel chair for her. Today I just ordered and recieved, Greenmin, and Soul Mate for her, I can hardly wait to see what this does for her hair and joints. Thanks you so much Dr. Dobias for having such wonderful products, I will certainly let you know how she does with her new additions to her diet. Thanks Jackie
Missy is everything to us, she has been through so much in her short life, 6 years old. At 11 months we found out her hip needed to be removed as the blood supply stopped going up to the ball of the hip. Very long painful recovery, but she did it. And learnt how to walk again. Then almost 2 years ago she developed IVDD another very painful ordeal for her.. she had spine surgery which left her with nerve damage. She now is almost pain free but I have to be very careful, no stairs, no jumping, no playing with other dogs… no running down the hall to play fetch with her ball.. I just want my girl to be happy and healthy and I am positive with your product it will improve her life, she already has been on gut sense for all of her life. I love her to pieces.. she is with me all the time, and even goes to work with me…. pick Missy she is the one.

Bubba is my 100 pound teddy bear that I rescued off the streets a couple of years ago. At first I was weary of him because he would growl at me when I would speak or try to approach him. I couldn’t bear to see him sleeping in the street so finally one rainy day I got him to eat and he realized I meant him no harm. I put him on my back porch because someone had called the pound to come pick him up. I couldn’t take him inside my house since I had 2 small dogs and didn’t know how they would get along or if he was healthy. I took him to the vet the following Monday and got afull check up and clean bill of health and got a bath and he has been with me ever since. He stays inside and thinks he is a lap dog. He loves to snuggle and wouldn’t hurt a fly even though his bark sounds otherwise. He is strictly a mamas boy. We don’t know his back story all I know is he is between 8 and 10 yrs old now and he didn’t,t know what a ball or toy of any kind was. Now his life is full of naps, treats,hugs and kisses and Nilla Waffers (his fav)

Cai is the name of my sweet 8 year old German Shepherd / Retriever mix. I had never felt joy or purpose like I do now until Cai entered my life. I will do anything for him. He is loved by each person he comes to have a relationship with. He is very gentle, patient and all around a sweet old soul. I call him my sunshine. He has been through some hard times. Together, we have been through a MCT diagnosis & removal. We overcame HGE together. Now we are entering his golden years with a partial CCL tear. Cai is also arthritic. In general, he is his happiest with time in nature, days spent chasing the ball, getting a sand bath at the beach and curled up on his bed with me. He has always allowed me to take care of him; he is even sweet and patient when he is at his most vulnerable. He has taught me the value of slowing down and appreciating life in each moment. Entering this new phase, I want to help support him with detoxing and showing up with the best investment I can as his owner. Recently, we have had some elevations in his liver. I know any time with him is the most precious gift. I would love to continue to support him with the best. He is my world and I cherish being his mom everyday. Thank you for letting me share this with you all! <3

Chanel was bought from a breeder but she came “defected” as per the vet. As much as I loved her, my mom was determined to send her back because she knew that the vet expense and emotional stress was going to be overwhelming. She is correct, not only did Chanel have a hernia but she had them on both sides. One morning my mom was determined to return Chanel 6 hours drive away but mom wanted to give her a bath and send Chanel on her merry way. As she spoke to the breeder while bathing Chanel she knew that the breeder had no use for her and Chanel took a deep look into my mother’s eyes that in a brief moment my mom was unable to let Chanel go. She cried while speaking to the breeder and advised that she was already part of the family. Yes Chanel has many health issues but she is one of us. Her defectiveness, destroying acts and loveable, sweet loving kisses keeps reminding us that she is part of our family. As much money as my mom has spent on her, she will live a loving life. Chanel has shown us to be humble and it doesn’t matter where you came from or where you go, you are perfect just the way you are.
