For some reason, my favorite pictures are the bad ones.
When Geordie got sick, a neighbor told us about Life Gold – Dog Cancer Support . Her dog had been diagnosed several months before and has been taking it ever since. At his latest check up, the vet said that the dog is doing great and to keep doing whatever it is the family has been doing.
I started Geordie on Life Gold as soon as I could have it delivered. At this point, I can’t testify to it altering the length of his life yet, but I feel confident in saying that it has significantly improved his quality of life.
Before his diagnosis, Geordie had been kind of laid back with lots of napping. The clue we had that something was wrong was that he would cough from time to time. Since giving him Life Gold, though, it is as if he is 5 years younger! He has taken up playing with toys again, and he even invites me to play chase with him. In the evenings, after Toby has gone to sleep, he drags his little brother out of bed and insists Toby play with him. This goes on every night! Plus, he barely coughs now.
I realize that Geordie’s cancer isn’t cured, but it is wonderful to see him living such a full and happy life. I wanted to share this in case someone reading has had a pet diagnosed with the dreaded “C” word. Life Gold isn’t expensive, and it might just help your dog to feel better and you both to be happier.
I forgot to mention one other thing I noticed about Geordie and Life Gold. Whenever he went for his chest X ray, the vet was a tiny bit concerned that he had lost 3/4 of a pound. For a while, he simply hadn’t been very interested in his food. After starting Life Gold, however, he developed a healthy appetite and has gained enough weight that he looks like a healthy terrier again.

I am SO happy Geordie is doing so well!
Geordie – your hair looks great!! You wake Toby up to play? This is great news!
I am thrilled Geordie is doing so well, too. I didn’t think I would be able to smile again after I got that bad news.
Ooh, bad timing about the great fur thing. Mom shaved us both last week. Maybe we’ll (not) cooperate, and she can get new pictures!
I am glad that you have found something that helps. What a joy.
Thank you. It is so nice to have my boy back!
I’m so glad to read about this! Winkie has been losing weight, not eating, feeling very lethargic. His first oncologist appointment is next week. So, we’re at the very beginning of our journey. We’ll definitely ask her about Life Gold, but I’ll probably order it in any case.
Winkie will appreciate having someone to compare notes with at Dogster!
We will keep Winkie in our prayers!
