Breed: Spitz mix
Age: 11 yrs.
Problems: Epilepsy - Shedding - Underweight
We adopted Biscut 7 years ago from the animal shelter in Honolulu. The vet told us she was probably 4 years old at that time. She was very thin and seemed frail. Later that evening we learned of her epilepsy, as she had a seizure. It wasn't a 'Grand Mall' type seizure but still, a scary surprise. The vet suggested medicine for the epilepsy but he also said that the medication could cause side effects and possible kidney problems. We decided that the severity of the seizures wasn't worth risk of her health. From that point on Biscut had at least one (1) seizure each month.
Biscut shed all the time. We thought it was normal because of the heat in Hawaii. Later, living in San Diego, we found it was a year-round problem. You couldn't hold her or pet her without getting white hair all over you.
We've began giving her Pet Wafers in 1996 and I must say that the results have been amazing. She stopped shedding completely and has had only one mild seizure in the last 3 1/2 years. Her energy level is greatly improved and she is healthier than ever. Pet Wafers has really helped her.
