Tookie – “I met Charles and his Team at the Pet Expo in Costa Mesa during the Spring of 2017. After speaking with him about right:ratio, I decided to “enter” my oldest Border Collie Mix (age 12 1/2) Tookie into their data base. Tookie has always been super healthy – which has really come in handy as he is terrified to go to the vet and reacts aggressively when there. I have to double muzzle him and it always stresses me out so much to have to take him in for even routine vaccinations…Sadly on or around July 1, 2018, Tookie showed his first signs of aging (he still looks fantastic!). Overnight, he started to have trouble walking, getting up and was even starting to fall down a little bit. After a few days seeing him having trouble (this was also during one of our Los Angeles heat waves), I fired up the computer and ordered Tookie’s first batch of right:ratio.
I’m not going to tell the details of July 9th, when I stayed home with him because I thought that Monday was going to be his last day with me – because it’s too painful to revisit; but it was not a good day for me (lots of crying and comforting).
He had been on the right:ratio for about 2 days at that point. You can’t imagine how thrilled I was on Day 5 when I could tell it had kicked in for him. A few days later – well, I was ecstatic – because my baby was running around like a puppy! We had to remind him to slow down! We bought those interlocking rubber floor pads from Costco to put all around the house for two reasons. First, if he were to fall, he would not hurt himself, but also slippery floors can be very difficult for arthritic dogs to get up from. They can get splayed out and literally cannot get themselves up.
After work on July 31, 2018 (a day I did not think he would be here for), I took my beloved Tookie to the McDonalds drive through for his 14th birthday. He ordered a cheeseburger and a medium fry (shared a little with me) and we had a blast!
Today is December 7, 2018, and my baby is still thriving….I believe once a dog reaches the golden age of 14 every day you get with them after that is a gift. Thanks to right:ratio, my gifts keep coming. Thank you Charles and Team!”
