I don't think my "Miracle Cat" would be alive without Tripsy. Over six years ago, Sammy had what was called a saddle thrombus episode and was diagnosed with severe hyper-cardiomyopathy. Over 97% of veterinarians say with just the saddle thrombus episode alone, most of these cats are very lucky to survive for up to approx.3 months--- Well, Sam's doctors keep telling me he he one in a gazillion, that they don't believe he is running around like a kitten, at times, with his super- severe heart trouble.
Well, Sam lost his entire right leg and hip due to that clot way back then, and he was super lucky that he regained full use of his left leg; but he has been on so many medications, that of course, he must take daily for the rest of his life. That is why I began giving him just a small dose of Tripsy only once a day for only 3 days per week., and he has been getting that dosage for over 6 years now.
Sam was never diagnosed with kidney disease but I thought Tripsy might be a good idea because we all know the damage that so many medications can do to or kidneys and other organs.
Now that Sam also has pancreatitis and some gastrointestinal illness, at age 15, I will be increasing the dose of Tripsy to 7 days per week, because I noticed that Tripsy is also good for the pancreas, kidneys and gallbladder,etc.
I truly believe that Tripsy has very much helped to keep him alive with all the daily meds. he has to take, or other wise, his kidneys may have failed by now. And I do understand that Tripsy is safe with all of his medications as NHV representatives have always been researching all of his medications to inform me, for sure.
The only reason that I did not increase his Tripsy dosage, for all the prior years, is, as, I said, he was never diagnosed with kidney problems, and he is on so many medications and supplements that my little angel needs room for his food ! But now, at his age and with the recent diagnoses of chronic pancreatitis, etc., I will be up-ing his Tripsy dosage, and will be considering other NHV supplements, as well. That is, IF, this boy can handle any more of ANYTHING in his little belly.
Actually, his big little belly, because "Sammy Miracle Cat" is a gorgeous black/white/grey Maine Coon, who is, now, only 10 - 11 pounds, at age 15. And no one would even suspect he is sick in any way by just seeing him ! And if I kept his hair long (not good with heart condition, those frequent hairballs) you wouldn't even notice he is minus a back leg and hip, when he, yet, zooms in and out of rooms! But if you saw all of his cardiology scans and reports, you, also, would know that Tripsy is helping his kidneys to help keep him alive, and in this well of a condition !
I sincerely Thank all the staff at NHV and Tripsy.
Sammy-- and his Mom, Pat *
