PetCentRx Case Study - Vim & Vigor Nutritional Supplements Proved Effective in Treating Malnourished Walker Coon Dog and Allergy-Induced Chewing in Jack Russell Terrier
A rescued stray two years ago, Annabelle, a Walker Coon Dog, was a “walking skeleton” when Molly J. of Dallas, TX found her. Known to be loving, eager to please, intelligent and skilled, Walkers are swift, energetic and have keen smelling sense and endurance. Annabelle, however, was presumably about one-year-old when Molly found her and “was just a mess.” “She had worms. Her appetite was nonexistent. And she suffered numerous medical problems because of malnutrition,” Molly said.
Molly’s senior dog, a 15-year-old Jack Russell Terrier, Gershwin, suffered from seasonal allergies and seizures. “His sneezing was compounded with the seizures. He lost his energy and interest in coming to work with me. Worst of all, his skin was irritated so he chewed the fur off his feet.” At the recommendation of Molly’s veterinarian, Dr. Shawn Messonnier of Paws & Claws Animal Hospital, she began treating Gershwin with vitamin supplements.
In addition to vitamins C and selenium, Molly was giving Annabelle and Gershwin each “a whole lot of different vitamins each day.” Through both Dr. Shawn and her pet food supplier, White Rock Pet Food, she learned about Pet-Togethers PetCentRx “Vim & Vigor.” “These are much more convenient for me to use and I keep a supply at home and at work. These are really wonderful vitamins for both my dogs. Annabelle now weighs 52 pounds and has a great attitude. Gershwin has really turned around and he’s as spunky as ever. People can’t believe he’s 15 and now he plays with Annabelle and jumps in my pool and swims. It’s worth it to me to have frisky, healthy, happy dogs.”
Dr. Shawn's Comments
Dogs, like Annabelle, that don’t receive adequate amounts of protein in their diet during the puppy years are more susceptible to stress and compromised immune systems. The loss of lean body mass can cause lost physical strength and reduced motor coordination. For older dogs, like Gershwin, that suffer from allergies, healthy supplements, such as whole food sources of vitamins and minerals, fatty acids and digestive enzymes, can improve digestion, minimize inflammation, and decrease harmful effects from cellular oxidation. Vim & Vigor’s calcium, phosphorus, copper, magnesium and Vitamin E among other enriching ingredients ensure pets get all essential nutrients daily.
