I thought I would share this lovely email from a new customer which I received last night as it shows just how much of a positive impact changing to a really good food can make for a dog…
I requested a sample of your food after seeing an advert and it arrrived today, thank you, it was very generous. Now, I know I cannot give proper feed back just yet, but I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Pets Kitchen. Alfie, my 6 year old Westie, is such a picky eater- every day I have such a battle to get food inside of him, he refuses pretty much every dog food I offer him, from the most expensive to the cheapest and everything in between, he has even been known to turn his nose up at a bowl ful of roast chicken, he quite simply will not eat, and has no medical reason not to (believe me, he’s had every vet test going!), he just isn’t a dog that enjoys food.
So, because of the fact he doesn’t really eat anything, he doesn’t have a regular food as such, so there was nothing to introduce the Jack & Joes kibble slowly to, so this evening I just emptied portion from the sample bag into his bowl as a trial. Alfie came over and gave it a sniff but to be completely honest, I was expecting him to walk away again like he normally does. But oh no, he took a piece carefully from his bowl and took it over the back door mat to crunch, then returned to his bowl to get another piece and continued this way until he was half way through, however, he soon decieded the food was too tasty to eat so slowly and stood at his bowl and proceeded to eat the rest of it- one mouthful after the other, and then throughly licked the bowl clean for a few minutes afterwards- just to make sure he hadn’t missed any!
I was so happy I could have cried!! I know that sounds a little dramatic but Alfie’s eating habits really have to be seen to be believed, he just doesn’t eat at all really, and this evening, that bowl of Joe & Jacks was honestly the first whole meal I have seen him eat in one go since he was a puppy, and he turned 6 years old last week. It is utterly soul destroying to have a dog that will not eat and it was such a relief today to see him eat with such enthusiam, I’m absolutely delighted I’ve f ound a food that he will at least give the time of day!
I know it is early days, but I feel the end of my daily ongoing battle just to get something inside of him, may well be drawing near.
I understand you probably have better things to be doing than reading an e-mail from a lady who gets reduced to tears at the sight of her dog eating a whole bowl of food (!!!), but I just can’t thank Pets Kitchen enough.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for producing such a wonderful food. I cannot explain the weight that has been lifted.
Very kindest regards,
