Maddie is a 10- to 12-year-old German shepherd mix who lost her owner to covid. The family didn’t want to keep her. Upon her arrival we learned she had cataracts that hindered her vision and, upon her first wellness check appointment, we learned she had inoperable cancerous tumors.

We put Maddie on pain meds provided by the vet; we also put her on our daily supplements and vitamins that all our dogs receive and have seen a great improvement in Maddie’s general health. She is more active and even her coat looks better due to our daily supplements. She plays with her toys (and everyone else’s, because she steals everyone’s toys!). Maddie loves to load up in the truck and go to town, where she demands all in her vicinity pet her and love on her.

You can meet Maddie here.
