Geriatrx™ and Epigen™ Help Diabetic Cat Off of Insulin
"I just wanted you to know that I have been buying your cat food for about three years now. I have three cats, two of which are elderly. My stepson moved back in our house about 8 months ago with his two cats so there are three younger cats in the house; they are about 2 years old. My oldest cat, who is about 14, developed diabetes which is why I started using your food. Until then I had been feeding him one of the more expensive varieties of Science Diet®, thinking I was feeding one of the best quality pet foods, it certainly was expensive enough. When Candy had to go on insulin, I did my research and found Wysong and started feeding Geriatrx™ for the dry food. Since then he was been off of insulin a good deal of the time. His last episode of high blood sugar only lasted about 3 weeks and I was able to take him back off of the insulin. Since Epigen™ came out I have been feeding a variety of Geriatrx™ and Epigen™ and he has not had to be on insulin at all. I recently took the three younger cats for their annual checkup and vaccinations and the vet told me they were some of the cleanest and healthiest cats he has seen. I am on the board and deeply involved in a local no-kill animal adoption facility and know the vet very well so he didn't just say that to be nice, he said it because he felt that way about my cats.
Epigen™ Improves Life For Diabetic Pug
"I have recently purchased and began providing my 3-year-old Pug (weight 15.4kg) with Wysong Epigen™. She was diagnosed with diabetes in March 2012, and has been given Hills Science Diet w/d food until now. Prior to trying your food, she had skin lesions on her paws, her glucose was unstable, and behavior tired & sad. Since feeding her Wysong it's been immediate positive turn around. Blood tests are showing her insulin needs to be reduced now. Thank you in advance for your assistance."
