Sophie was adopted as a rescue dog when she was a just over a year old. We were her third
placement. She was deemed spiteful and destructive. After a week, I knew that we had a very
special girl. She was just too smart and needed a job. Sophie quickly became my right hand. She
kept all our other dogs in line and is a natural at tracking, quickly finding one of our escapee
pets. She became our dog ambassador, always friendly and polite, our in house puppy trainer.
Actually, Sophie would have been a great service dog since she was able to open doors, cabinets
and crates. She is truly my heart dog, a once in a life-timer.
Last January she was scheduled for a routine dental cleaning. Since she was already 10 years
old blood work and x-rays were recommended pre-operatively. I received a call to immediately
come pick her up. I was devastated to be told that the x-rays showed a substantial lesion. The
following day, I brought her to see an oncologist. He found 2 more lesions in her lungs. He
believed that these were not the primary tumor and that it spread from somewhere else. He
suggested an MRI to locate the primary tumor and treat it with the appropriate chemotherapy.
She was not a surgical candidate with a metastasized lesion. He told us 3 months without any
treatment and 6 months with aggressive treatment (chemo and radiation). We decided to love
her, pamper her and not pursue conventional treatment.
Within a week of diagnosis, I changed her diet to grain free kibble and began her on K9
Immunity. It has now been almost a year and she is still doing wonderfully. Sophie has
dedicated the past summer to hiking and training a new poodle puppy. She has an occasional
cough, but has not shown any signs of illness. I love to watch her frolic with the puppy. I can
only attribute her wellness to K9 Immunity and kibble. I am so glad that we found out about K9
