Charlie's Story

Charlie's Story

"Nearly in tears, defeated, and hopeless I sat down with Isabelle for Charlie's consultation.

It started about 2 years ago. Charlie, then 6 yrs old, began having diarrhea frequently, and increasingly in my home while I was away. At first it seemed to be linked to him getting into the garbage and other sources of food not meant for dogs. He had periods where he would seem to be OK, followed by horrible bouts of diarrhea. Within the past 2 years I had taken him to the vet on 3 separate occasions-never getting a diagnosis, simply receiving antibiotics/probiotics and sent on my way. This would work for the duration of treatment but soon after he would become sick again. I tried many different kibbles thinking he had a certain meat allergy-still sick. Finally I began cooking home made meals which he tolerated, but he started becoming aggressive and his scavenging for food became unbearable. I felt I no longer had a relationship with my dog, I was angry at him even though I knew it wasn’t his fault. Nearly everyday I was coming home to garbage’s torn apart, which soon turned into him even trying to eat empty plastic bags and cardboard boxes in dire search of the nutrition he so desired. This of course lead to more diarrhea. Meal prepping for him and myself became too much and his behaviours were out of control. I reached out to a local forum and HoliRaw Nutrition by Isabelle was highly recommended. With nothing left to lose I anxiously awaited my consultation.

Isabelle was extremely reassuring that his gut health would improve with a raw diet. It was a rough start and I was very sceptical. At first, he didn’t want to eat the raw food and went on a hunger strike for nearly 3days-I was losing hope once again. Isabelle suggested feeding him the raw food frozen, and to my surprise he finally began to eat! In about 2 weeks time he was no longer having diarrhea, his aggression went away, and his scavenging was ever decreasing! As a loving and devoted pet owner I finally felt like I was providing him with the nutrition he needed to live a long, healthy and happy life!

My biggest regret- wishing I had made the switch earlier. Now at 8 years old, Charlie is the happiest and healthiest he has ever been and I have Isabelle to thank for that. I strongly recommend putting all your faith in Isabelle and making the switch! I think it just may have saved his life."
