    RESULTS

    Kimberly quickly added the Vitamin B supplement into Rodrigo's diet and found the source of the boron. It was the dish soap! Rodrigo has stopped chewing and itching. His diarrhea has stopped too. He has more energy overall. 
    "I changed the dish detergent I used to clean the dog dishes and I added more heart meat which I now alternate with a Vitamin B complex supplement" - Kimberly
    Kimberly has done such a great job with her dog's diet that we awarded her with the Healthy Dog Award. Congratulations Kimberly!
