WE PROUDLY SUPPORT
the miracle dog
Kodi has had a challenging life journey when it comes to his health.
At age 1, Kodi was diagnosed with seizures for nine months.
Unfortunately, no specialist could help him. We conducted lots of research into treatment, remedies, and diet changes. Finally, this change proved effective as Kodi’s seizures ceased.
When Kodi was 8, he was diagnosed with Mast Cell cancer.
Kodi attended countless Veterinary and Oncology appointments, surgeries, and multiple CT scans. Oncologists’ gave Kodi 9 months to live. Kodi’s vet Frank, of East St.Alban’s Vet Clinic, believed otherwise. Frank helped and supported us through this challenging period.
In 2018, Kodi started a new diet. Since starting that diet….. 14.11 year old Kodi, chooses to still be with us today.
Kodi was in remission for 5 years….. Aug 2023, a grade 2 Mast cell tumor was removed. October 2023, Kodi had a challenging period… we thought it was time…. But…… Miracle boy Kodi, fights and does it again…
