Auggie

Auggie – Canine discoid lupus

“Auggie, our female German shepherd mix, was diagnosed with localized canine discoid lupus on the left portion of her nose in the fall of 2009 when she was eight years old. We followed our vet’s prescription of a combination of vitamin E, a topical corticosteroid and niacinamide for about a month with no noticeable improvement in her condition but some rash-like side effects from the treatment.

Knowing there was no cure for the condition, we realized we needed to find a way to manage the lupus over the course of her life and the vet’s options were not the way to go. After some research on lupus to understand what we were dealing with and searching for a treatment our girl could live with, we found Longlife Pet Supplements as a more homeopathic option. We placed our first order in Feb. 2010.

We followed Longlife’s suggested program for mild to medium ailments and saw marked improvement in her nose within the first three months. We nicknamed her The Miracle Nose as she basically “re-grew” the skin surface on her nostril and the severe crack that had developed in the flesh meshed and healed back together.

Auggie turned 12 in 2014 and Longlife with the Immune Booster Supplement has been part of her diet for five years. Although she does have mild flare-ups on her nose from time to time, Longlife has helped her to live symptom-free with no side effects whatsoever. The online ordering/shipping process is simple and customer service response from David is always immediate and accurate.

We love the fact that all ingredients are natural and that the product also seems to have effectively treated the mild arthritis that has cropped up in conjunction with the lupus. Our vet can’t believe how great her nose is doing and how active and vibrant she is for her age. She can easily keep up with her four-year-old brother on our daily romps and walks. We know Longlife has played a big part in her continued great health and life quality. We definitely recommend Longlife’s products and programs to anyone looking for a natural alternative treatment for their dog’s lupus and joint problems.”
