On September 26th, 2006, I took our 7 ½ year old Keeshond, Tova, to our veterinarian due to some changes I had noticed in her
skin and coat, as well as in her overall health which did not seem up to par. The vet tested Tova for all the conditions that are normally
manifested by her skin and coat symptoms as well as a full battery of blood and urine tests.
While the test results did not show anything regarding her skin and coat, the urine test revealed that she was “in the early
stages of chronic kidney failure”. On the vet’s recommendation, we proceeded with a three-day I-V hydration treatment. During that time I
researched treatments on-line, and found the kidney treatment of the Five Leaf Pet Pharmacy. My husband and I agreed to try to Five Leaf
We had just begun the treatment (drops, diet, exercise and hydrotherapy) when the vet wanted to re-test Tova following her
hydration treatments. The results showed that Tova‘s levels had increased for the worse, but the vet did not share the actual results with
me so as to keep me from “panicking”. While continuing the Five Leaf treatment, we had Tova’s teeth cleaned since they were quite bad.
During the cleaning, the vet extracted one of her teeth as it had been fractured and was decaying.
Following the completion of the Five Leaf treatment, we had Tova tested again. The results were all perfectly
NORMAL! On seeing Tova, the vet was quite impressed with how well she looked and acted, commenting on the fact that Tova
looks “years younger”, and no longer has a “stressed” look.
It has now been 3½ months and Tova is doing very well. We have kept her on the diet prescribed by the Five Leaf Pet Pharmacy
and have noticed other benefits. Since she was a puppy, Tova has never had much interest in eating and for the past 1½ years the vet has
had Tova on Pepcid tablets to help with her digestive system. I took her off the tablets when beginning the Five Leaf Pet Pharmacy
treatment and have not needed to place Tova on them again. She LOVES the Five Leaf diet and eats her food without coaxing, and at record
My husband and I are so grateful to Amanda and the Five Leaf Pet Pharmacy for all their help and their overall care and
concern for canine heath. We have recommended the Five Leaf Pet Pharmacy to our veterinarian and to others and do so whole-heartedly!
Amanda, I may not have elaborated enough on Kodi's main problem that you fixed. Bob laughed & said, she didn't need an
autobiography! LOL So, I have to tell you that when she was diagnosed with cirhosis of the liver & kidney failure, after seeing blood
on her bottom. I was scared to death. She then was operated on a spot inside her colon, which Doc thought was the problem, but it wasn't,
he said it was much worse. That's where the other diagnosis came in. Doc I'm sure knew that she didn't have long to live, so he told us to
feed her anything she wanted, just to try & keep some weight on her & keep her alive, but it only gave her diarhrea and was getting
so skinny. We knew that she was so close to death. That's when we found Amanda! Thank God!!! She wouldn't respond to my Mom, stay in a
corner, and didn't interact with us. Oh, but now, I want to HUG Amanda for helping my "kid" have the best time of her life!!! Thanks!!!

My Princess Jr. Kodi was abandoned by her mother at birth, so she had no immune system. I got her at about 5-6 weeks. I
immediately fell in love with her. she soon became being called my "million dollar dog." She had so many things wrong with her. I will try
to condense her story because it's quite long. She lost her back left leg at the age of 2 because of a trap! Then at the same age she got
pancreatitis...my own fault, I was so uninformed, I didn't feed her pork, but, I put pork juice on her food...which sent her into
pancreatitis, and she almost died, Doc said there was one anitbiotic left..as he called it, the big gun, and if it didn't work, then she
wouldn't make it.
One of the next things she got was sweatgland cancer, I found a lump on her front right hand, and since she only had the 3
legs I just couldn't see her trying to make it with only two legs, but...we do have it on video of her walking with the two, because when
Doc did a biopsy, it was wrapped up & she won't use it if it's wrapped up! So, she walked with 2 opposite legs. We were then referred
to U of I in Champaign and got radiation for a month, and after 2 yrs of checkups she got a clean bill of health. She became the Ramada
Then she got Cirrhosis of the liver at the age of 16 and also was into kidney failure, she was operating on 1/2 of one
kidney. My perfect Vet that loved her so much since she was born, he said to give her anything she wants to eat and that was that. I know
it killed him, knowing that medicine had taken her as far as it could. Looking back I realized that he knew that she didn't have long. But
of course, she's my kid, so we went out on a limb, and thank God found Amanda's website. I cannot tell you how much she's improved, well
maybe I can by saying my Vet now is giving Amanda's website to his clients. That says a lot, my Kodi's enzyme levels has made a believer
out of him. This last time my Vet said, first off he wished his bloodwork was that good. Also he said that they were as close to percfect
as they can get. I can tell you that it has taken her back to where she was 5 years ago. Now looking back, we see how sick she was, but we
chocked it up to age.
Amanda's treatments have brought her back to a "kid". I also learned the first time you put the food in front of them, the
pureed vegetables, that they may not eat it the first time, but the 2nd time I've put it in front of 4 dogs, that they ate it that time.
(enzyme levels follow).... Her enzyes were as follows, her two liver enzymes right before we started the treatment were : ALKP-1499 &
ALT-off the chart too high to register after 1 month of Amanda's treatments: ALKP-158 & ALT-148 2nd month after treatment: ALKP-129
& ALT-148 The 2 kidney enzymes: before treatment: BUN-36 & Creatinine-1.8 1 month after treatment: BUN-34 & Creatinine-1.3 2nd
month after treatment: BUN-24 & Creatinine-1.4
We can't thank you enough for our Kodi's health! You've taken off at least 5 years of her life, she's went back to when
she was almost a baby! We saw a change in her almost since day one of your treatment. We are amazed at her every day! I wish I could hug
you, you have given me back my "canine kid." She's doing so wonderful, you have made me a firm believer in herbal treatments, at least for
Thank YOU SO much for giving me my 16 year old dog back to when she was SO young! Not to mention from something that was
life threatening, and that our Vet had pretty much given up on her because modern medicine had taken her as far as it
Thank YOU Amanda!!!! Shordy, Bob, and most of all Kodi Ramsey

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 reccommend you to anyone that would need your services.

For 13 years we have takin the best of care i believed of the best dog ever,Taz. At the age of 10 was couging or choking
when he lay a certain way. We as always, trying to take the best of care, took him to our vet. Heart disease was the diagnosis. Of course
whatever it takes meds meds and more meds. I have to say i always hated to see all the stuff he took salix 3 a day, enalapril 2 a day, 2 a
day tussigon, 1 a day thyrossin all taking their toll on his kidneys. Not to mention all of the steroids he has been given for the allergies
over the years.
All seemed to be stable till Sept of 05. We left for a vacation for 4 days and as always we left Taz in grandma's hands. Well my wife called to
check on things each day. Well Taz wasn't eating but thats how he has always protested our leaving him for any log time. He was only drinking
alot of water. So we were already coming home we got the usual happy greeting from Taz. So we started to see if he would eat and he acted like he
wanted to but as soon as he did eat a little up it came. This scared us, this is not Taz. So after a few more days and again going to the vet we
were told kidney disease after a blood test. We were told the heart disease was under control but the kidney disease WILL KILL him.
This absolutely crushed us we again decided as long as he is not suffering we'll do it. So fluids daily till he started eatin again. So in Nov he
was back to eatin and actin a little better. The hole time we were prayin for him to make it till each of our Bdays in Nov then before Xmas it
happened again. We was told that we had to go back to fluids every day. Well we tried this but nothing they tried was working. We were losing him
so i started checkin the net for k9 kidney disease and found this site claiming to reverse the disease. Skeptical to say the least but kept it in
mind. After a few days the vet was leaving the next day for vac says to us if you need us we'll be ready to help. Meaning put Taz down knowin
it's close to time since he has went from 16lbs to 11.9. This told us what we were thinkin already but could't say.
So when we got home i told my wife we had to try this treatment or thats it. I could not put my best friend through much
more. We agreed that if this did not work we would have tried everything. So i spoke to Amanda and filled her in on Tazz's condition. I
asked if it was too late and she replied if he's breathing it's never too late to try. So we ordered everything and began treatment,
Taz still didn't eat so we would force feed him. After each week he would act a little better but not eat, i felt almost like he forgot
how. So one day while force feeding him i said Tazz if you don't start eatin on your own we are startin to lose hope in
That next day i returned home from pickin up a fast food meal at Mcd's. Well Taz went nuts on the smell, well if he would
take any thing he could have it. He inhaled my sandwich we were so happy to see this. Hope had returned w/ the name of Amanda Banting
my dogs guardian angel because hope was gone my dog was gone till we tried this life changing, eyeopening treatment .
Taz has been doin great and the other day the vet said he looked 5yrs younger. She cannot explain Tazz's recovery but as
of now he is off all prescription meds unbelievable as the vet said after we broke that news after the 5 yr comment. She said oh my, i
must keep an eye on his heart my wife said not really he's been off of them for months, her jaw dropped. The sad thing is are all the
people we see come in and out of the vet and with the same problems without ever even the word of this alternative treatment
So if anyone me or my wife can get through to PLEASE BELIEVE IN AMANDA SHE WILL DO NOTHING BUT HELP YOU GIVE YOUR FAMILY
MEMBER A CHANCE.
Sincerely ,Keith Kim and Tazz, 14 and still goin strong.*

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
Thank you so much!!!!

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
bout 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.

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.

Hi Amanda, It’s Tim and Heather Leonardi, proud customers of Five
Leaf Pharmacy. You said to send you a testimonial once Winnie was all back to normal, and that glorious day arrived just a few short
weeks ago! Here is a synopsis of our story, we hope that it will serve as some small measure of thanks for keeping our Winnie a healthy,
happy dog for years to come!!!
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. My wife has had Winnie for several years, and when we began dating and got married I too fell in love with this
wonderful dog just as she had years prior. While we were both very distraught, we were determined not to just sit and wait for what the
specialist seemed to think was Winnie’s eventual demise.
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.
Our first surprise came when Winnie absolutely LOVED the bean, vegetable and tofu mixture that constituted
her daily diet. We piled her into the tub twice a day for hydrotherapy, and although she was a much bigger fan of the warm minute than the
cold, she was a great dog through the whole process. Her energy level rose, especially after a walk or run, showing an exercise recovery time
more akin to a puppy than a full grown dog. Although these were great signs, and we tried to maintain a positive attitude, we still harbored
some fear for Winnie’s health and questions whether or not the Five Leaf program would be the answer for Winnie.
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!!!!
Winnie is currently still on the bean, tofu, and veggie mix and loving it three times a day. Her best
friend (besides my wife), Bear, our little beagle mix sometimes gets to lick her bowl and he seems to love the stuff too! We’re keeping her
on the maintenance program and some dog greens and monitoring her kidneys closely. We are big believers in your program and hope that others
will find you and be just as successful as we were in bringing back our beloved dog from the brink. Winnie is a happy, healthy dog again:
running around, playing with Bear and our cats, and winning over everyone’s heart that she comes in contact with! We couldn’t be happier:
with Winnie as our dog or the wonderful program that you have at Five Leaf Pharmacies. Feel free to use this or paraphrase it in any way, but
please accept it as our sincere thanks for the role you played in saving our pet.
