"Coco had had trouble with her tummy since she has been little. She came to me as a miniature Yorkshire Terrier and the breeder told me she was 13 weeks old. After discussions with the vet he thought that she was actually 7 around weeks old. As they were selling her as miniature, and she clearly isn't, they think the paperwork was either fake or that she was possibly even from a puppy farm and may have been taken from her Mum too early
We've been backwards and forwards to the vets since she was tiny with frequent sickness and diarrhoea and was diagnosed with severe pancreatitis in 2014. She was given multiple course of antibiotics, antacid tablets, anti sickness injections and stomach binding pastes.
Coco was never a big eater and we tried her on various foods with little success.
After the diagnosis the vet told me to leave her on a prescription diet purchased from the surgery. I was concerned about the low quality ingredients but if that was what the vet recommended it had to be right didn't it?? We were constantly topping up her meals with chicken or potato to encourage her to eat and even then, threw away more than she actually ate.
After the final straw of 3 ten day courses of antibiotics in the space of two months I started looking into an alternative diet. One evening the Pure Facebook page came up on my timeline and I sent a message to the team asking for some advise.
The same week I purchased a box of Terrific Turkey, sensitive from Pets at Home and to be honest, I've tried so many foods I wasn't sure what to expect. She enjoyed the food as soon as I started to introduce it and I'm happy to say that, almost two weeks later, we haven't had any poorly tummies and she has eaten every meal.
I would recommend anyone with a fussy eater or a dog with gastrointestinal issues to give this a try. She's now sleeping better and her fur is much shinier too"
