    My 10 yr old Jack Russel with CHF was given 2 years to live when she was 8 is but we found a vet who prescribed this and some supplements and she is her old self again (wanting to play all the time!) we love her and we love this food! Also, she is allergic to most of the foods we’ve ever tried – she would get itchy and turn pink. She loves this food, she gobbles it up and no itchies. We hope they never stop making it!!
