When her beloved 11-year old Ragdoll cat was diagnosed with bone cancer a few months ago, Sue was heartbroken. The options that the vet provided to prolong the kitty’s life were daunting and involved radiation and chemo.
“They did not seem like options to us as we didn’t want to put him through all of that,”
says this mom who lives in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Sue did not want to give up on her feline companion and went online to see if there was anything else she could do to help her boy with cancer. She came across Life Gold and decided to give it to try.
“I am so glad we did,”
she reports after giving the kitty the treatment.
“Our little boy who we thought would not be here for Christmas has actually been doing wonderfully. There are absolutely no signs of him suffering with cancer that we thought would take him within a couple months.”
In a short period of time, the 22-pound kitty gained weight, regained his appetite, and is now more playful than before. The kitty is very much part of the family, and it was very special for Sue and her partner to be able to celebrate Christmas with their adorable kitty. “He seems to be healthy and very happy in every way,” says mom.
