Elderly boy Cash is a 10 year old rescue Giant Schnauzer with such a dedicated owner who only wants the best for him as he suffers from such bad arthritis in his hindlegs. I met her over a Zoom teleconsult to discuss all her concerns with Cash.

She is a long distance trail runner and was a dedicated vegan herself until she chose to feed Cash a raw food diet thinking it would be what was best for him. Interestingly, she said that as she was buying in all this meat for him, she began to eat it again too and she noticed that suddenly she was not able to cover the long distances that she was used to running as she had so much less energy eating meat again.

Here is her story about her very loved Cash –

“He holds his weight off his back left leg more and more these days as he has arthritis in his left hip. We decided to give him the Librela injection, starting August 2021, but stopped after 6 months as it didn’t seem to be so effective after a while.

He had 12 sessions of physio in March and April this year, with water treadmill therapy, infrared and electrical stimulation. It made a slight difference, but not enough to warrant the cost!

Since we adopted him 6 years ago, I assumed meat was the healthiest choice, so he has been eating, in chronological order, from a butcher or supermarket: chicken carcasses, lamb skirt, beef, chicken, whole rabbit, sardines and raw eggs. I tried to cut down on the meat and replace 1/3 of his meal with raw finely chopped veggies mixed with sardines and eggs, he didn’t like it much!

I did this for 6 months. Then tried raw frozen menus for 4 months. He didn’t enjoy these very much.
He seems to really enjoy his vegan meals right from the start.
I have been introducing your homemade supplemented vegan meals to him for the last month, but still mixed with his normal whole rabbit meals. But he hasn’t had rabbit for the last 4 days now.

Normally he has not wanted to walk for more than 10 – 15 minutes at a time. But this morning for the first time in many months, he chose to keep walking and we walked for around 40 mins!
We were amazed, and VERY VERY happy!”

Such wonderful feedback about sweet rescue boy Cash and yes his Mum is definitely back on a vegan diet too!!
