In June of 2008, I pulled a dog named “Kane” out of a high kill shelter. He was around 2 years old. I took him immediately to my vets and was told he had 3rd stage heartworms. He was malnourished and was 20 pounds underweight. I could tell he had given up. The vet gave him less than a 2% chance to live. I renamed him “Phoenix”, telling him he would rise up out of the ashes and live.
Move ahead 9 months. Phoenix fought long and hard and made it. For almost 2 years he seemed to thrive. Phoenix had energy and was a feisty little dog of about 4 years old. But the cost to his immune system with the heartworm treatments, 2 years prior had taken its toll, and he began to not want to eat and became lethargic. I noticed patches of his hair began to get a scaly, almost greasy like substance by the root shaft and then would fall out. He would tear at his skin until it looked like it was on fire.
I took him to a holistic vet, who diagnosed Phoenix with Leaky Gut Syndrome. Her diagnosis spot on, but her method of treatment ( hot laser treatments) about killed him. I decided no one loved Phoenix as much as me. If he had a chance to live, I would have to find it. I stayed up all night researching online everything I could find on Leaky Gut. Around 4 A.M., I came across photos of a dog whose skin and fur looked like Phoenix’s. I read the whole article and realized it was an ad for a product named Nzymes. I went into the skin and coat pages and saw there were 5 steps to using this treatment effectively.
I had already changed his diet to Orijen 6 fish, so step one complete. The next was a recommendation to get Phoenix on a good skin care treatment in order to treat the skin and coat along with the internal treatment of the Nzymes kit. I selected the Nzymes full kit treatment, then went to one of the suggested skin care treatments which was Dermagic, and ordered their full kit. Just a few days later both the Nzymes kit and the Dermagic kit arrived, and I followed Your instructions exactly to the letter.
When I had ordered the products I was told by a representative that Phoenix would get worse before he got better, but to continue the regimen like the instructions said, and it would work! Within 2 weeks Phoenix began to heal. It did get worse before it got better, and I utilized a cone on him as was one of the suggested steps, but each day after the 2-week mark, he showed improvement!
Today his skin is pink and healthy. His appetite is great and he is youthful and playful! Plus look at his beautiful coat! I owe his life to the Nzymes Company!
July 2016 was the month I lost my mom; but July 2016, was also the month that Nzymes began to save Phoenix’s life! Had I not have found their ad, my life today would have been so different! The combination of the treatment all worked together to give Phoenix the best quality of life, and I will be forever grateful!
