If your dog has Kidney Disease we want to help!

We have helped thousands of dogs return to great health from various stages of canine kidney failure. The majority of people end up finding us when their dogs are in total kidney failure, the prognosis is poor at best and the usual advice from their vet is euthanasia.

Many of these animals have made extraordinary recoveries and have gone on to live long happy lives. We have also seen dogs in early stage kidney failure benefit greatly as well. It does not matter what stage your dog is at, the sooner you start doing everything you can to naturally support his body in the healing process, the better his chances will be for recovery.

Canine Kidney Disease comes in various forms, we have seen dogs recover from the following ailments:

  • Acute Kidney Failure
  • Chronic Kidney Failure
  • Congenital Kidney Disease
  • Glomerulonephritis
  • Kidney Failure due to Lyme and other tick born diseases.

Canine kidney disease is a devastating and aggressive disease. While it is commonly seen in elderly dogs and thought to be part of the aging process, more and more we are seeing younger dogs being affected. Canine kidney disease is considered irreversible and canine kidney failure is usually considered fatal by conventional veterinary medicine.

Conventional treatment focuses on treating symptoms and managing the disease with fluid therapy, drugs and prescription low protein/low phosphorus commercially prepared diets. In some cases, this can prolong the life of the animal but will never repair the damaged kidneys.

It is no surprise that treating symptoms does not restore health. Conventional treatment does nothing to support the body in healing so how can we expect our dogs to recover by only doing conventional things?

The Canine Kidney Health program comes in where conventional treatment leaves off. Our program focuses on nourishing the cells of the body by giving them the support they need in the form of herbs and a natural whole foods diet. The herbs in our formulae help to support the kidneys function, cleanse impurities from the blood and aid in repairing damaged and diseased cells within the body.

Every living being has the ability to heal itself of any disease if given the chance. Your dog’s body has a blue print for how to repair itself from injury and disease. Since the body is so full of intricate inner workings it only makes sense that the body itself has the ability to heal from within, pharmaceutical drugs and processed foods in the long run just add more toxins to the body therefore debilitating the body even more, further compromising the healing process.

"The Doctors thought Candi was not going to make it"
Hi Amanda,

Paul and Eleanor Rhodes here, I just want to let you know how Candi is doing. Out of the clear blue our Candi 4 1/2 yrs. old got sick. Took her to our vet 18 miles away, he said it was her kidneys and he needed to keep her overnight to give her IV'S. Went back next morning Candi was no better, so our vet said that his wife was to go to the hospital the next day for tests and he would like for us to take her to Springfield, MO. to Bradford Animal Hospital 70 miles from our home. We took her straight there that day. That same day is when we ordered the program from you which we received in a couple of days. Candi was in hospital for 6 days, was on medication in her IV's the whole time. The Doctor called, said she had a lot of blood in her urine but was somewhat better but Candi would not eat. He told me to come get her and he thought she would do better at home. She went from 11.8 lbs. to 7 1/2 lbs in that week. The Doctor put her on medication for 6 more days and told me to take her back to my own vet after all medication was taken to have blood workup again. We did this and Candi's numbers were not good. The Doctor put her on more meds and said to bring her back in 2 weeks to get blood workup again. I chose not to do 6 more days of meds and stopped them and decided to put Candi on the program at that time. In just one week I have seen a big difference in Candi. She was so much better. After 2 weeks on the program she has gained 2 lbs. back. We took her back to the Doctor for the blood test to see if the numbers had changed. In just 13 days on the program Candi's number had changed. Bun--78 to 42 and Creatinine 2.6 to 1.3. The rest of the numbers were all normal and back to 9 1/2 lbs. This has been a miracle and even my wife's Sunday school kids have been praying for Candi's recovery. The Doctors thought Candi was not going to make it and thought Candi was an interesting case and they thought she was terminal. This is her last week on the drops, food, coconut and hydrotherapy and she is 100% well. So we just want to THANK YOU so very much. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Will surely recommend you to anyone that would need your services.

The kidneys play just as important a role in cleaning your dog’s blood as the liver. When the kidneys are healthy they take on the job of filtering blood plasma, they return good clean blood to the body and create urine to expel the waste. They also regulate the acid/alkaline balance, as well as the water and electrolytes of the blood. In natural healing not only do we focus on the problem area (in this case the kidneys) we also make sure the rest of the body is working properly.

There are many reasons why our pets get sick, probably thousands of reasons. The hundreds of chemicals we use for food production, lawn care, plastics, the air we breathe, vaccines etc. These toxins all get ingested into our pets’ bodies and can lead to liver disease, heart disease, kidney disease and cancer among many other serious and life threatening illnesses.

You see, a healthy pet’s body doesn’t just say “hey, let’s start making a disease” it’s all the toxic waste the body is trying to expel that gets trapped within that starts the disease process.

The first step you must take in the fight against canine kidney disease is stop giving your dog toxins. Feed a home prepared whole food diet. Commercial pet food, dry or canned, WILL NOT DO even if it’s the newest, best, number one, organic or human grade food, it is simply too processed. Feeding your dog whole foods that you have prepared will ensure there are no hidden toxic ingredients that will harm your loved one. Our Diet page offers low protein/low phosphorus recipes that you can lovingly prepare for your best friend.

The only full recoveries of any canine disease we have seen have been realized in dogs that were fed exclusively home prepared meals as required in all of our natural healing programs.

"My regular vet was pleasantly surprised"
August 17/07

My dog Blackie is a 14 year old Cocker spaniel. I adopted her 8 years ago. She is blind and over the time I have had her, her only health issue has been an issue with inflammatory bowls. Other than that and more recently some hip issues, she has been healthy. About four months ago she rather quickly became ill--not eating, throwing up. I took her to the emergency room where she was diagnosed with kidney failure. Her creatinine number was 6.1 and her BUN,216. She was hospitalized and placed on fluids and antibiotics--the latter in case the issue was an infection. I was told if after 48 hours the numbers dropped by 50% it would be a good sign. Unfortunately, They did not--only about 25%. I was sent home with aluminum hydroxide (a phosphorus binder) and fluids to give to her under the skin and told to get and give her azodyl. Although not said bluntly, I felt the message was: there is little that can be done and this is palliative care. The first day she was home I felt powerless, hopeless. That night I prayed and when I got up the next day I was resolved not to surrender without a fight. I went to the Web and found CannineKidneyHealth.Com. I called, I listened. Hope was restored. I immediately moved her to the recommended organic diet and distilled water--and was happy when she ate it and kept it down. I ordered the greens and the drops. I took the program to my holistic vet, and he told me he was familiar with the Dr.'s who had put it together and approved me putting her on the program. One week later, her numbers were: creatinine 1.46 and BUN 103. My regular vet was pleasantly surprised. About three weeks later her creatinine was 1.1 and her BUN was 81. Her phosphorus was also within normal limits--a little on the high end but normal, and that is where they have remained. The numbers are only part of the good story: She is more alert and active than in several years. Her bowls are normal--which seems to be a byproduct of the new diet. I have given her the aluminum hydroxide, the fluids and the azodyl too, and for good measure I have had acupuncture and given her Chinese herbs recommended by my holistic vet, but I am absolutely sure that the improvement has been primarily do to the Canine Kidney Health program. I know she cannot live forever--none of us can--but I am sure that I am going to have for a lot longer than I would have had I not found CanineKidneyHealth.com

Thank you Skye!

Just wanted to let you know latest on Blackie------had blood work done on Saturday results are essentially same on creatinine and phosphorous--both normal. Good news on BUN---went down 35 points from 80 to 55. I have been doing the hydro twice daily and it seems to be working.

The following are additional steps we strongly recommend to give your pet the very best chance at recovery.

Step 1:
Pure drinking water, be it through carbon filter, reverse osmosis, distilled etc. Clean filtered water is essential. Tap water is full of poisons. Why make your dog’s kidneys work harder having to filter more poisons from their blood. Distilled water also aids in flushing toxins from the system.

Step 2: Plant based vitamins and minerals from grasses, sea vegetables and seaweeds known as superfoods. In the right combinations these superfoods contain every possible nutrient, amino acid, vitamin, mineral, etc. This will ensure your pet’s body is getting all the nutrients it will need to start repairing itself from and fighting against disease. Synthetic vitamins and minerals don’t cut it, they are made from dirt, stones, clam shells and even chemicals. They are poorly absorbable and can be toxic. Synthetic substances will put unnecessary strain on your pet’s system. If you can obtain a nutrient from a natural source that should be your first choice. We were given plants to convert inorganic non-absorbable earth minerals into highly absorbable organic nutrients that animals can digest.

Step 3: Specific herbs to not only help the kidneys repair but to cleanse your dog's blood, strengthening his immune system and to clean and repair the liver. The liver and kidneys are your dog’s filtration system, when one is diseased or not working properly it puts more strain on the other organ which may lead to it becoming compromised as well, recirculating toxins within the body causing disease.

Step 4: Hydrotherapy, this therapy utilizes alternating hot and cold water on the affected area, which promotes rapid healing. This therapy has been used for centuries in Europe to heal every kind of disease. Recently in America body builders and athletes have found hydrotherapy beneficial in repairing torn and injured muscles more quickly by bringing more blood, oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. We have seen hydrotherapy alone heal a dog from chronic sinus infection, repair torn ligaments, rebuild heart muscle and remove lumps and bumps.

Step 5: Exercise, this is something many neglect when their animal is sick. Often exercise is only seen as something necessary for keeping fit or to lose weight. Many don't realize that exercise not only stimulates circulation and strengthens muscles it also strengthens your dog's organs, intestines and stomach and creates wonderful healing chemicals within the body. Of course common sense must be used if your dog is extremely sick and you should always start off slowly with short walks and build up day by day.

The Canine Kidney Health program uses an array of therapies, herbs and whole foods to restore your loved one to good health. No one therapy is more important than another. This program is a life change for your dog and will offer his best chance at recovery.

"Renal failure as I have found out, is not a death sentence for our beloved pets. Five Leaf Pet Pharmacy has made my dog whole again."
July 7, 2006

May I take this opportunity to recommend the Canine Kidney Health Products that Five Leaf Pet Pharmacy provided to me when my 5 year old chocolate lab “Love” was diagnosed with renal failure in February 2006. The prognosis for her recovery was not good. Because of this I got on the internet and came across the Five Leaf program. Desperate to do anything I could, I called Five Leaf and ordered the products.

Her condition has improved greatly. In fact, she is more active than she has been in years.

Renal failure as I have found out, is not a death sentence for our beloved pets. Five Leaf Pet Pharmacy has made my dog whole again.

Thank you so much!!!!

Dogs of any age are capable of recovery, a large majority of the dogs who have seen wonderful results by following our program are elderly dogs who are in their mid to late teens so don't let your dog's age deter you from giving them their best possible chance at having many more happy years with your family.

The sooner you start doing everything you can to support your dog's body in the healing process, the better his chances will be for recovery.

It is essential to work with your Veterinarian to monitor you dog's recovery and supply you with tools to keep your dog hydrated. If your Vet has not already suggested fluid therapy ask them about administering subcutaneous fluids at home. We highly recommend you do everything you can to ensure your dog stays as hydrated as possible while on the program, as it has proven to make a big difference in the results seen. Your Vet can show you how to administer the fluids and supply you with all you will need to do so. This is common practice, so you should not have trouble finding a Veterinarian to help you.

If you ask the right questions, your Veterinarian can be a wealth of knowledge. Try to educate yourself on the stages and symptoms of canine kidney disease. Symptoms of this aggressive disease can be varied and wide spread. The more you know the better prepared you will be to manage your dog's situation. 

Your vet can run blood work once you have completed the 3 weeks and this will tell you if you need to repeat the program or if your dogs values are in normal range in which case continuing with a healthy lifestyle including natural whole food nutrition will keep him healthy.

On a routine visit to the veterinarian, my wife and I discovered that our beloved lab mix Winnie had elevated BUN and Creatinine levels. Our vet recommended a canine internal medicine specialist. My lovely wife returned from the specialist in tears, as she had been informed that Winnie was in complete kidney failure and likely had less than 6 months to live. The internal medicine specialist said that Winnie had lost function of one kidney and the other’s ability to operate up to her body’s needs was quickly deteriorating....  In a frantic couple of days, we researched possible solutions. Everything seemed both incredibly invasive for Winnie, and upon discovering the Five Leaf Pharmacy website, we were very intrigued, although somewhat skeptical of the therapy program that was laid out. Maintaining a cautious attitude, we purchased our first kit and scheduled an appointment with the internal medicine specialist that would follow the first cycle....  The fear, the doubts, and the questions all went away after Winnie’s first trip back to the specialist following her first cycle of the program. Her BUN plummeted back into the normal range, down from the mid 80s to the 23, and her Creatinine decreased to 2.1, down from 2.7!!! We immediately ordered another cycle to keep the Creatinine falling, and it did! The BUN remained constant and the Creatinine fell to a lowly 1.4! Winnie was BACK!!!!...* read more >>

I have just received my lab results for my golden retriever, Brandy. It has been 3 weeks since we began the program of the food and herbal treatments recommended by the Five Leaf Pet Pharmacy. I must say I never thought I would make it 3 weeks! It was my last chance to treat Brandy for her kidney disease. I was willing to dedicate the 3 weeks required, at sometimes wondering if perhaps I was just looking for a remedy that would help, any remedy, when I came upon www.caninekidneyhealth.com. I was doubtful, I was skeptic. I was desperate. I called. Skye was the person I spoke with. I decided to "go for it"  So............ here are the results......... Brandy's Bun is 22- normal, Brandy's Creatinine is 0.8- normal, Brandy's Phosphorus is 4.4- normal, Skye said to dance for joy! I was still skeptical when she said celebrate! Her tests are great! You have your dog back!!! It was hard for me to believe, but, I am so, so, greatful. thank you, thank you, thank you. Marcia Martin and of course Brandy.
