Sadie is one of those sweet and playful pups that you fall in love with at first sight. I met Melisa, Jordan and Sadie during one of our events at the Dallas Farmers Market. They were very concerned about Sadie's allergies and I could tell why after I saw her red and flaky belly skin. Her quality of life was deteriorated and her family was mortified. I knew that Real Food for Dogs could help to bring back her gorgeous coat and heal her skin, and so it did. This is the story of Sadie's allergies that her family has shared with us. Enjoy!
"Sadie is a five year old Boston Terrier but she will be turning six this coming May. I first saw Sadie when she was a tiny puppy in late June 2012 and I fell in love with her instantly. She is super cuddly and loves curling up with anyone who is willing to sit down with her. She is also super playful and continuously has her toys scattered all over the house. I read something once that said "owning a Boston Terrier is like having a toddler around..but forever" and this couldn't be more true. Our little Sadie means the world to us!
Her allergies started getting really bad when we moved to Dallas, TX in May of 2013. First it began with her just being super itchy and then it quickly progressed to her losing lots of her hair. When we took her to the vet they told us she could be allergic to anything from the carpet in our apartment to something she's eating to something in her environment.
We were super frustrated and hated seeing her look so miserable and not being able to find a solution. We first switched her food to an "organic dog food" that we purchased in a pet store hoping it would help but unfortunately after doing tons of research myself, I discovered that there wasn't any type of regulation as to what companies were even putting in their dog food. So even though you may be buying "organic dog food" it could be full of the exact same junk all of the other dog foods had: gluten, sugar, and so many unknown fillers.
When we bought our house on the North East side of Dallas we began to frequent the Dallas Farmers Market Sunday mornings and that's where we first came across Real Food For Dogs and met Gisselle. From the moment we started talking with Gisselle about Sadie we could tell she truly cared about our dog like we did and she was more than willing to help us get her allergies under control. The first thing she did was set up an appointment with us so she could meet Sadie and evaluate the severity of her allergies. By meeting Sadie and looking at how her allergies were affecting her she was able to custom tailor her food to better suit her current needs.
Sadie absolutely loves her new food. She never leaves even the tiniest crumb in her bowl. Her hair has completely grown back now bringing back her brindle color that we love so much. Her coat is super soft and shiny and she just looks so much healthier overall.
We absolutely love Gisselle! She is always so sweet to work with and truly cares about all of her dogs! Sadie is such a happy and healthy little dog thanks to Gisselle and she is truly living her best little spoiled puppy life!"
