I could not be more thankful for a treat and food my dog likes; he is extremely picky! We had a routine checkup a year ago and they told me that Cheeks had the on-start stages of kidney failure. I was devastated and stopped all treats and food he was eating, and decided to make all his food. I also researched raw all natural diets and found Vital Essentials to supplement his new lifestyle. After a year of feeding him an all natural diet his kidney levels are back to normal and he is as healthy as ever. A raw all natural diet makes a huge difference and prolonged my pets life!
