It's nice to see others who have had good experiences with K9 Critical Care and the folks at Birkdale. Our dog Jake has had Mast Cell Tumors for nearly 4 years now. The vet said that normally he saw animals last 6-8 months. Jake's case has turned out to be severe in that he had multiple tumors remove and they don't stop coming. Jake has lasted nearly 4 years since the diagnosis and we believe that his strong health is due in part to the help we receive from Tom & his products along with good diet and veterinary care. Yes, it is expensive, however it's a drop in the bucket compared to other treatments. Thank you Tom and the folks at Birkdale Medicinals!

We have had our Mini schnauzer on your Critical Care Power Pak and dog food for 1 month now. He has lymphoma and was treated with chemo for almost two years when it reappeared. He was put on a last ditch protocol of chemo with the results making him very ill. We had made a decision to treat only with prednisone. He was given a matter of a few weeks at most. We had him into our vet yesterday for a check-up and she was very surprised and pleased with his health and asked for information on the food and supplements we were giving. Mozart is a pure white schnauzer we have had for 6 going on seven years and is the most loving dog I have ever seen. Seeing him happy is our greatest pleasure. Thank you.

Pet Mix Mobility
My dog loves the Pet Mix Mobility - as much as she enjoys the Pet Mix, the Mobility seems to be her preference - me too, I enjoy the aroma over the regular mix. Will definitely be re-ordering Mobility!

BirkDale Pet Mix
I recently purchased the BirkDale Petmix for my 12 year old Border Collie Mix. The first batch (enough for 12 days for him) I made with ground beef and he absolutely loves it, especially that I am giving him warm food every day. I love giving him something I feel is safe and healthy. Today we will try it with chicken.
I was extremely happy with your customer service and prompt delivery.
STAR LOVES THE FOOD
I WAS AFRAID SHE MIGHT DISLIKE IT,BECAUSE OF THE CHERRIES,BUT SHE EATS IT RIGHT UP.SINCE WE HAVE BEEN GIVING HER PETMIX SHE NEVER HESITATES TO EAT.
This is my dog Lexi who was diagnosed with liver cancer in June. The day she was diagnosed, I frantically went online to search for something that may help her while she was going through chemotherapy. I found your product and ordered immediately. She has never missed a day of K-9 critical care.
I am happy to say that at her last chemo appt. an ultrasound was done and the tumors on her liver have disappeared! The vet also said that he has never seen a dog with her type of cancer have such a good white blood cell count. I love your product and believe it has helped her tremendously!
I would be thrilled to see my beautiful girl on your label:)

Emmie is our one year old shih-tzu. She absolutely loves her homemade petmix!

This is a picture of my Mocha. I lost her to cancer a year ago, but she would do anything for her petmix!! She didn't realize she was sick, she just thought she hit the jackpot with this new food! I couldn't stand the prescription food the vet gave her so I did some research and found your petmix! Thanks to good food and your cancer care pack, she lived 19 months after her diagnosis and was happy and active until her last day. She is the reason all my dogs eat petmix now, and would be so proud to be on a petmix label!

Annie is our seventeen month old Sheltie and I think she'd be a great "poster girl" for BirkDale PetMix! She eats BirkDale every day, twice a day and is thriving! The PetMix gives her energy to chase the squirrels and armadilloes on our property every day! I use ground turkey to prepare her PetMix and she loves every bite!
Thanks for considering our Annie!

Here are some photos of my best friend, Tyler. He has been doing extremely well since I started him on PetMix just a few months ago. I hope you like them.

Here are a few pictures of Scruffy who just underwent surgery to have a tumor partially removed from his throat. He is currently on your supplements and eating your homemade dog food and doing fantastic! We call him our miracle dog! Hope and pray he continues to do well.

Great product, average shipping time, wonderful = thank you for helping our dogs!!
Birkdale Dog Food Mix
My order arrived very quickly, and I'm very pleased with the dog food mix. My dogs go for it VERY eagerly, much more so than they did the dry kibble I had been feeding them. They seem more content and satisfied after their meals than before, too.
K-9 Critical Care is helping
My beautiful 6 year old german shepherd was diagnosed with splenic cancer in June that had spread to her liver. Her spleen was removed and she is now receiving chemotherapy. We started her on K-9 Critical right away as well as chinese herbs. She just had her second round of chemo and an ultrasound was done and they cannot see any tumors on her li ver!!!! I attribute this first and foremost to god of course but the K-9 critical care is well liked by her and it contains all of the good cancer fighting, immune boosting ingredients that I know she needs...I've read alot of books on this since June. This is a great product and my orders have been received quickly. All in all this is a great product!
I can't believe it was that easy!
My dog Manny has had intestinal issues since I adopted him 2 years ago. I tried every kind of food combination, prescription food and home cooked food with little success. After an emergency stay at my vet over Memorial Day,I decided that there had to be something wrong that I needed to figure out. So I spent the weekend on the internet and stumbled upon the K-9 Critical Care site. After reading some testimonils (that sounded alot like my dogs problems) I decided to give it a try. Wow, during the cooking process my dog actully came in the kitchen to see what the yummy smell was all about. I gave him a small taste and it was all uphill after that. I did a gradual switch over from chicken and potatoe home cooked food and he has been on the BirkDale Petmix totally for three weeks now. NO VOMITING and NO STOOL ISSUES...I have a new happy dog now! Just placed an order and hoping for continued progress. No more processed food for my little man ever again! Thanks so much for your product! Bernnie and Manny, NJ
So glad I found this stuff!!!
My 11 year old Yorkie/Maltese mix has had health issues all her life. I've been making her food, always feeling like she wasn't getting everything she needed nutritionally. This food seems to be just perfect, and most importantly, my dog consistently LOVES it!
Lucy's vet said keep doing what you're doing.
Two years ago our poodle, Lucy, was diagnosed with an anal mast cell tumor. The oncologist estimated 6 months to 1 year with surgery, chemo, radiation regimen. Lucy was 11 years old and had already had heart and hip surgery. So we decided against putting her through that regimen and to try the "natural way" to keep her comfortable as long as we could. We tried several potions and finally discovered K9 Critical Care. Four months ago we happened to be at the vet at the same time as her surgeon. He examined her and said he could remove the tumor. It was the size of a baseball (mostly internal). He was successful. Our vet said that she was remarkable and we should keep doing whatever we were doing. I believe that K9 Critical Care kept Lucy in good enough condition that 2 years after her cancer was discovered we were able to improve and extend her quality of life.
I am a new customer and was so happy at the quick response in shipping my order of Birkdale Pet Mix.(ordered on Sat. & recv'd on Monday. Thanks so much!
I have nothing but praise for BirkDale Medicinals. Tom and Jeff have been friendly, courteous, and very helpful when I called to place an order or if I had any questions. Plus the products are great.
My Madeline is a Different Toy Poodle Today!
Once I caught on that the "prescription" dog food for my "allergic" dog was keeping Madeline consistently ill, I took the first step, and tried the Pet Mix. the difference in her is simply astounding! This poor little girl, who was frequently ill with ear infections, dietary problems, etc., is doing SO MUCH BETTER! It is a gradual change, and it is such a relief to know she is not suffering any more!
What a Fantastic Product
My dog loves your product. We have a 5 yr. old boxer/mix who was already having a problem with arthritis in her hips. We started feeding Pet Mix and the Mobility Pak a little over a week ago and she's already showing improvement. Her coat is silky now and she has much more energy, along with her ability to get up off the floor without a problem. P.S. I lost my last dog with bone cancer and would love to see her photo on the front of your Pet Mix. Can you tell me how to go about doing that? Thanks so much for your wonderful product.
For Dogs with Tender Tummies
The most important thing is that my dog loves this food. The next important thing is that it's great for his digestion. He's always had a touchy tummy but has had no problems at all since he's been on BirkDale food. It's easy to prepare and I know it's always fresh. The service from this company is excellent so Charlie (my dog) and I are very happy with everything.
Great service and product
I ordered K-9 Critical care for my 12 year old Shih Tzu who was diagnosed with lymphoma of the colon in February, 2011. After 4 chemo treatments she had a very bad reaction and treatments had to be terminated. They gave her 1 month. I believe your product did extend her life to 2 months. Unfortunately, she lost her courageous battle on May 20, 2011.
I have given my dog the Critical Care supplements for two months and she is doing GREAT. The supplements really work. She's like a puppy, playing and running. Bright eyes and coat.
Service exellent as always! I have been ordering Pet Mix for quite awhile now. My dog loves it and it's convenient to make.
dutchess is a brand new dog
Your products are very good. Nutrition is so importiant for health. She has tombers and some bleedining from her throat area since she has been on your products no more bleeding dutchess is a 11 year old schnauzer and a big part of our family Thank You.
I just was to let Tom and Peter Know how much I am thankful for all they did to keep my sweet Bailey with me as long as they did. I lost her March 3,2011. I am, of course still pretty much in mourning however I know she is at Rainbow Heaven with her friends playing. It just hurts so bad. She was almost blind and had become hearing impaired due to th e growth in lymph gland (cancer) . I don't think I have ever seen a more sadder site than to see an animal deaf and blind at the same time. Even if you are not a dog lover this would break anyone's heart. Tom and Peter gave me longer time with Bailey by feeding her their products and had I known about them sooner I may still have her with me today. I would recomend their products to anybody 100%. They prove to me they can help. They are the best.
We just got the product for a dog of ours that has cancer. Will have to wait and see how they work. The website is nicely detailed and explains all the supplements uses. Communication with the seller is excellent and shipping was fast, so far a great experience.
K9 Critical Care Pack and Pet Mix
My Dog Buttons was diagnosed with Lymphoma in Mar 2011. I elected to not do chemo and radiation as he is 10 and I did not want to put him through that. I found this website in my search to fight his cancer holistically. He is on prednisone right now along with the supplements and pet mix and seems to be doing well. We do have some bad days but wit h lots of prayer and these products the good days have outweighed the bad ones. He is happy and that is what is important to me and his recovery process. Thank you Birkdale, for your superb customer service and very quick delivery.
Pet Mix - All Natural Dog Food, Allergen Free formula
My one year old Sheltie (Annie) is thriving, so your product seems to be a good fit for her! Annie's breeder (Sandi Benton - Cadeneaux Shelties) uses your product for her show dogs (and pet dogs) and I have ordered it and used it based upon Sandi's recommendation and her dogs' successes in the show ring.
Service was attentive. I received my order but this is the first time using the product so I don't have much to comment on. I was using another similar product however I read in a medicinal mushroom newsletter that the rating wasn't very high for that product. The rating was high for the Birchdale product so I am trying it. The other product w as deliverd in much less time due to having a Canadian distributer. The BirchDale product requires more product for a dog of 80 lbs and is therefore more expensive so I will need to weigh all factors when ordering again. My dog has a mast cell tumour...very aggressive and I use a combination of natural and alleopathic medicine to kee her quality of life.
Professional and expedicious,thank you.
I am so glad I found you guys!! I know you have saved my sweet baby Samantha's life. You are always so nice and helpful and understanding. Samantha lost her leg to bone cancer and I know the supplements have saved her. Thank You!!
Best dog food ever!
My dog was never a "food" dog, mealtime held no urgency for her and she was content to wait until you got around to putting food down... well, all that changed when I switched her to BirkDale! Now she lets me know IMMEDIATELY that it's time to eat, she LOVES this food! Molly is a "lab mix," probably a lab-retriever blend of some kind, 46 lbs, hi gh energy, athletic, very "fit." I started her on BirkDale PetMix in response to allergies she was experiencing (itchy skin, red/raw/itchy feet, etc.) and they have cleared up beautifully with BirkDale PetMix. The vet let me know that it was likely the wheat, corn, and/or soy in the dog food she was eating before. I now occasionally mix in a grain-free dry kibble to supplement the BirkDale PetMix, Molly does seem hungry when I feed her the recommended amount, probably due to her high activity level (she runs with me and we go on lots of long walks along with her puppy-playtime at the park). I cannot recommend this food highly enough, if you love your dog enough to put the time in effort into prepping it then please do so! One prep note: I finally figured out that cooking a large batch and then storing it into containers with daily servings worked best, I keep the bulk of it in the freezer in pre-measured containers and move them to the fridge as needed. A cheap investment in the ziploc tupperware proved to be the best solution and now feeding time is a breeze! Also, the food stinks to high heaven when you cook it so don't plan to make it at the same time as your family meal, it will spoil everyone's appetite!
Petmix Homemade Dog Food
I loved the 2# sample I received. My dogs LOVED it even more. It was so easy to prepare. I would love to feed it to them on a regular basis, however it is a bit too expensive for me pocketbook. I will however purchase this product occasionally to give them for a treat. Thank You for the sample.
My little Shih Tzu loves this food!
I've been feeding this Pet Mix to my little 10-year-old for 2 or 3 years - he had been sick to his stomach - would not eat, and had lost a lot of weight. I called and Tom himself answered the phone. His suggestion to try his special food was my answer. Ming-Lei whines and barks every morning until we warm up some of that yummy turkey stuff. He l oves it, and is racing around the couch like a puppy again!
This stuff is great, and much to my surprise, my dog likes it.
I have ordered three times. All three orders have been received very quickly, even when I ordered at night. Rusty, my almost 12 year old boxer who was diagnosed with rectal cancer over a year ago, is doing very well eating pet mix. He has been on a grain free diet cooked by me. The Pet Mix is easier and quicker to fix and less expensive. I am very pleased.
Great service. Received order next day.
I have been feeding my mixed-terrier Tyler this wonderful food for over three weeks, and I can actually see a great difference. He's more happy and energetic, and his coat has been getting softer. Most of all, he just loves it! I never saw him woof-down food like he does with PetMix. He won't even touch commercial foods anymore. I only wish tha t I could have found this sooner. Thanks k9CriticalCare! PS: Can you send me a catalog? I want to order by mail.
K9Critical Care and Pet Mix
I recently purchased both products for our choc lab with MAST Cancer and our black lab who has continuous ear problems. They love the food. Will keep you posted on their status
omega 3's have helped my dog
My vet recommended omega 3's to aid in my dog's cancer remission. I have been using BirkDale's for 3 years in April. My Snow Pea has been cancer free for 3 years now. Obviously, the suppliments are working for him. I highly recommend this product.
Restored my dog's spunk!
My dog had been diagnosed with diabetes in early Jan., and we had been giving him insulin shots, which seemed to do next to nothing. Within days of simultaneously using the insulin, the K9 Level Stat, and the homemade food, he was like a new dog. My other dog, without diabetes, clearly loves the homemade food as well.
K-9 Critical Care Kit
My Bernese Mt. Dog who was diagnosed in Nov.'09 with Osteosarcoma of the left leg has been on K-9 Critical Care for a good year. Along with diet this supplement has enabled Jackson to remain in remission. He celebrated his 7th Birthday in Feb. With continued use I hope to celebrate many more.Thank you BirkDale and especially Tom.
My 1 year old German Shorthaired Pointer (have another pointer also who is 4)was shedding and had a really rough coat so I decided to change her dog food. After a lot of research, then reading a lot of reviews for Pet Mix I decided to try it. After both had been on the food for about 2 weeks took them to the vet he said I don't know what you are f eeding them but their coat looks amazing. The youngest is so soft and not shedding like she was. Both have a lot of black in their coat and are so shiny and soft. Both love the taste. Hopefully the 4 year old will lose some weight. Delivery was very quick.
I have ordered a few products and received all within a timely manner. I have called and asked questions and they answered with no problem. only small problem i had was I ordered a product and they sent the wrong bottle, but i called and they said they would send the correct product out right away and i can return when i receive the new one. Which Ipersonally think all companies should be just as efficent as this one.
K9 Critical really works!
After finding out our beloved Rottie mix had gotten cancer (bone) I was devestated. I looked on the internet, and was directed to this site offering supplements to improve a dog's health. Needless to say, I was extremely doubtful, but as we were given only 2-4 weeks for our girl to be with us I figured I would try it out. Well, that was shortly afte r Christmas, and it is now after Valentine's day, so we have already passed the date the doctor's said (and we didn't even get her leg amputated because of her age.) As soon as I began giving the pills to her, I noticed she was different. It literally was only 2-3 days before she began getting up and moving around, whereas she had been lying on her pillow not even going outside at all. Also, her eyes became much clearer- which surely is a sign that something was working. Since then, we have had blizzards and ice storms, yet she continues to move around outside. She even went on a hike with our kids sledding, running (although slowly!) after them. She was out walking this time at least an hour! I had my doubts, but now truly believe these products do what is claimed. I have ordered my second pack, and will soon be needing my third. I am very happy with this product, and would recommend it to anyone.
love pet mix
My English cocker had been having weight problems. She loves PET MIX and has lost her fat rolls.
I purchased 3 products from BirkDale. They were shipped and recieved in a very timely manner. I ordered a product that i really didn't need and called them and sent the one needed ASAP. BEST THING ABOUT COMPANY THEY ACTUALLY TALK TO YOU AND HELP YOU!!!!
Erin KennedyThis is CJ. She has made such an improvement since she started on K9 Critical Care just one week ago. Thanks to Tom for such an amazing product!!
The K9AllerG is a fantastic product. It totally handled my Golden Retrievers skin allergies. He no longer has his "hot spots". Thanks
Our dog Pima is diagnosed with lymphoma. We immediately did research and found you. the K9 critical care is making a difference even after only two days! she is more herself, with energy and bright eyes. And the FOOD! excellent!!! we have been making our dog food for a long time, however supplementing with dry crunchies. NO MORE! your make your own food mix is absolutely perfect. both of our beagles love it. and making the treats of the food in the freezer works wonderfully. So they now have completely healthy dog treats. no more milk bones with the unhealthy grains. Thank you so much for your products. Since we are not electing chemo for Pima, the impact of your product is essential to her health for the time she has left. we will undate as we go along. Anyway, thank you again.
Still experimenting with product
I find the company to be very easy to work with. I had questions on my order and I was able to talk to a rep without any hassle. I think I like the products, but have not been taking them long enough to know for sure if they will help with any of my issues.
Terminal Prostate Cancer with metastatis to Liver
I purchased the 247 and Colostrum products to complement my father's chemotherapy for terminal prostate cancer which had spread to his liver. I chose these 2 products to support his immune system since the chemotherapy would essentially wipe it out AND to support his liver function since it is working so hard with cancer and chemotherapy drugs. My father is currently undergoing chemotherapy round 3 of 5. When my father's bloodwork was run prior to the 3rd round of chemotherapy, his doctors were speechless. Even with cancer in his liver AND 2 chemotherapy drugs being administered for 2 months, all of his liver numbers were within the normal range. All they could really say was that they had no idea how this could happen, and he was not a "textbook" case. Additionally, it is the height of cold and flu season. Even so, my father has not contracted any illnesses. He has been exposed but able to fight them off, even immunocomprimised. We are sure that all these things would not be possible without the 247 mushrooms and colostrum!!!!
Great Company, Products & Service!
My dog suffers from allergies. I contacted BirkDale and spoke to a rep regarding which products would help alleviate Lexus' allergies. He was very patient and helpful! I ordered and received the products quickly. Thank you for being such caring and knowledgeable staff.
Nami Oneda Lawenda I just wanted to reiterate how much K9 Critical Care prolonged and improved the life of my late Chocolate Lab. I now have a Chocolate Lab puppy, and I will continually use your products! I also love how informative your website is in regards to what is unhealthy for our canine friends. I am purchasing my dog food/treats through you directly! PS: Your human supplements are equally recommended--I have seen the results with myself! THANK YOU!!
Our 14 year old lab was diagnosed with lung cancer and told she had, at the most, 1 month left. She was having trouble breathing, her third eyelid was constantly closed due to pressure from a tumor, she had several lumps on her body and she was lethargic. I found Birkdale on the web and decided to give it a try. My husband was skeptical to say th e least. I'm happy to say that it's been a month and she has made a HUGE turn around. She's able to take 2 mile walks, is playing with our other dog, her eye has returned to normal, the lumps are all but diminished and she is breathing with ease. This product is nothing less than amazing!!
Gretchen, 11-yr-old Australian Shepherd
Gretchen was diangosed on 10/26/10 with mass cell melanoma of the throat and tongue. The vet said to pamper and spoil her and with any luck, we might have her until Christmas. Surgery removed 3/4 of a growth sized like an avocado the 1/2 of an egg sized one. We immediately started an aggressive and complete Birkdale Critical Care Diet and medicine regimen. She is happy and energetic and just had a second surgey to remove part of the recurring tumor. We still have her and she is healthier than she has been in over a year. We realize her time has been shortened over all, but her time with us has been extended and made a happy experience because of Birkdale. The owners have answered our calls at 9:30 PM from home and responded to our needs with concern, understanding and positive support. Our vet was surprised with the results and supportive of our efforts with Birkdale. She said she supports "whatever works" and this is working. We are recommending Birkdale as a standard diet to our friends and have our 8 year old Lab on the diet now too. They both really love it. Our thanks goes beyond health care. Birkdale has added to our "heart care" too.
i was desperate when i found Kritical k-9. My Cocker, Zekey was diagnosed with tonsil cancer. Major surgery was implied but prognosis and time grave. We opted out and paid to have Kritical K-9 overnighted. I immediately started him and in a few days I saw a spark in his eyes I recognized. He has continued to get stronger regain his weight and o verall condition improve. Yes he still has cancer but it it being managed. Cancer is a symptom of things awry in the body. Getting it balanced your body has a better chane to fight. They sent us home with major drugs that looped him outta his headhe now takes one Rimadyl a day half am and half pm., for pain, along with his Kritical K-9 on his food. He chases the mailman everyday down the driveway and drags in birds that hit the windows and even killed a mole the other day. I'll take just one day of his good days than to have him just exist in a shell from the drugs. He's been there for me always, my job is be there for him. Thank You Birkdalejill and zekey
we received our order very quickly. Our Great Dane Maddie was diagnosed with bone cancer and we started her on the critical care and trans factor within a week of the diagnosis. She is also on meds to help control her pain. We know that at 8 1/2 yrs old our only option is to keep her comfortable. We seem to be accomplishing this. Maddie's appetite has returned and she is getting around well. She still has a limp but goes outside to patrol the yard. The growth appears to be growing on her leg but not bothering her in any way. As long as Maddie is happy and eating well we will keep her on these products. It has been 2 weeks and we are very pleased.
My Golden Retriever was diagnosed with lymphoma on 12/23 a neighbor recommended your products and I started her on the Critical Care supplements on 12/27 and she seems to be doing really well. I am starting the food this week. Her skin allergies seem less bothersome already and she seems to be tolerating the chemo very well. I am very pleased with the products so far. I hope the combination of food and supplements will help her battle the cancer. Joanne V.
I never write reviews on anything but I just had to endorse the Birkdale Petmix product. We have two 8 month old female Welsh Corgi Pembrokes and were searching for the best food to feed them. Last year we lost our 12 1/2 year old Corgi to mast cell cancer and after a lot of research became convinced that a better diet might have helped her avoid that. When we got our pups home from the breeder we noticed they already had developed food allergies to the dried kibble they were getting there and our Vet put them on some expensive kibble that they sold in their offices. They still exhibited signs of food allergies. When that expensive Vet food was out we switched to a highly rated kibble but the scratching and itching persisted. We again switched food to a kibble that was very highly rated and at the same time got some Birkdale which I made up and froze. One of the pups was very finicky and did not care for her new kibble so I threw in some frozen Birkdale treats and she gobbled it all up. We then decided to wean them of the kibble and start feeding them the Birkdale and their itching stopped and they lust to eat now. Our slow eater attacks her bowl with a vengeance now. It's been about three weeks and their coats are soft and shiny and beautiful. People are stopping us on our walks to tell us what beautiful healthy dogs we have. I told my niece about our dog food switch and she ordered it to try on her dog and my sisters dog. Both of their dogs suffered from lack of energy and had terrible allergies and hot spots, etc. The Vet they went to wanted them to go to a dog allergist and get regular allergy shots. My sister called me a few days ago to tell me that both dogs had no more hot spots and had virtually stopped scratching and were much more energetic. Wow! I am always a skeptic about any product that claims to do so much but your product has produced incredible results in a very short period of time and my dogs freaking love it. Peace and respect - David Hickey
Fast delivery, Great product that the dogs really love to eat, smells so good it's tempting to try some. Really glad I made the switch.
Since feeding petmix to my senior Beagle and Lab I have noticed a positive change in their energy levels and the texture of their hair. They are more playful and their coat is shiny and healthy. My lab has thyroid disease and it has been difficult for her to gain weight but with petmix she has managed to add on some healthy weight.
This company is top notch. their delivery is fast, and I never have had any problems with my orders!! Love them!!
Dogs just Love this food! As soon as I get it out of the frig they start dancing around. Easy to make and store. Like that it can be portioned out for each dog so all I have to do is grab a couple bags from the freezer the night before. Customer service is awesome! Tom and Mary Beth are knowledgeable about their products and very helpful with questions. It's all good from here and my boys thank you immensely.
This is the only place I know of to get antlers - already cleaned up and ready - without going out into the woods searching. They are great for dogs!
My 6 year old golden retriever (who is otherwise a very strong, fit, happy boy) has recently been been diagnosed with malignant lymphoma. I found what I thought was a swollen gland and took him in for a check. It was in fact the beginning stage of lymphoma, evidenced in 4 lymph nodes. In an effort to give his immune system an extra boost during, and most likely beyond, his six month chemo protocol, I have started him on the BirkDale K9 Immune supplements. He has only been on the supplements for about 10 days and has received one chemo injection. After one week, I can no longer feel the swollen nodes under his jawbone, at all!!! I am anxious to hear my vet's take on this speedy reaction to treatment when we do bloodwork today. Thanks to BirkDale for providing what might be just what Sully needs to stay strong throughout this course of treatment and thanks to God for the many months or years I may be blessed with the companionship of my over achiever retriever.
I have been extremely happy with the products (Critical Care) we have put our 4 year old cocker on. She has lymphoma (T-cell) & we still have her 3 months out from diagnosis. She FEELS good & that's what is most important. Tom, your kindness is invaluable! I appreciate your care.
When my boxer, Jake was diagnosed with lymphoma, the vet said it would be only a month or two before we would have to put him down. That was three months ago and Jake is still with us. He has his good days and his not so good days but I can attest to the critical care pack extending his time with us here on earth. He doesn't show any signs of suffering or pain, maybe slight discomfort with the swelling of his glands. Thank you for giving us a little more time with our beloved best friend. Dave Wilcox
Our Lab was given 3 to 6 months to live. Started buying Birkdale products at that time, and now after 18 months and our Lab has never looked healthier - the Vet can't explain it. The combination of daily prayer for our Lab and these products have been a lifesaver for him..
Our 10 1/2 year old Labrodor Retreiver Rambus was diagnosed with Lymphoma about 6 months ago. He was put on the Madison Wisconsin Short Protocol and his last shot is November 29th. He has been on K9 Critical Care since about a week after the chemo started. All I can tell you is he has gained back all his weight and is now within 2 pounds of his original weight before he got sick. He is doing GREAT and I would highly reccomend the K9 Product to anyone in similar situation. The staff of Birkdale has been great anwering questions and refilling orders. Special thanks to Tom for all his help.
Considering the bad news our Vet gave us on Duke's bone cancer, it was nice to get immediate understandable info on the disease & how we could build up Duke's immune system to help fight it. The Web page is organized & easy to read & as the product description & ordering. Thanks. Rick B.
I have been buying supplements for my best friend Bailey for about 7 months from Birkdale Medicinals. The Vets gave my Bailey a few months to live and wanted him to go through radiation and chemo. He has cancer in his mouth. He was twelve at the time. He is doing amazing and just had his 13th Birthday. At 13 I opted to go a different route. Thank God I found Tom at Birkdale. He is always a phone call away and always makes time for my questions. Yesterday I asked him what I could take not realizing he has a supplement company for humans.
this was my first time trying it on my dogs and they totally loved it. they got the diareha from change of food but only lasted two days. will definately order it again. it is worth the price
Dear Tom, I have recommended your dog food to many friends with fussy eating poodles. All have rave reviews about Birkdale!! Spohie a 4 lb tea cup poodle has been on birkdale diet for about 6 weeks we haver recently noticed here eyes have cleared beautifully, she is perkier than ever, acting like a pup and wants to eat to much now. I'ts 9pm she has already had her morning and eavening meal and she's begging to eat again. If I can tell you this dog has barely ever eaten anything sometimes going two days without eating. Walking up to the traditional kibble smelling it and walking away. I felt after trying every dog food on the market that I would never be able to find something healthy for my dog. She would never touch a carrot now she loves them. This is such a good feeling. I just bagged up some food to send to my freind in Colorado, her poodle only eats roasted chicken. Thank you 100 times I feel Birkdale saved my dogs life and has made me one happy pet owner. Sandra, Boca Raton, FL
DJ and I both love your product. DJ for the flavor, he devours it as soon as I set his bowl down (he's never shown this behavior with any other food I've offered, not even table scraps. I love it for its ease of preparation, cost and last but not least, DJ's love of it (I know he's eating and eating good food). Thank ypu very much for your food.
Hi, I had ordered from BirkDale in the past for our dog who has since died from Lymphoma. I believe that your product gave him 7 long good months of health until he lost his battle with cancer. I am writing today to say that we have now tried your K9 Mobility with our older 13 year old German Sheppard cross. He has had arthritis for quite some time now. Your supplement is the only one that he LOVES to eat. I mix it up with a bit of water so it is like a gravy and he licks his bowl very clean every time. So much easier than trying to get him to eat pills. We have also noticed that the K9 mobility has helped him better than any other natural supplement we have tried. Thanks so much for making such a "yummy" supplement. From Spencer R. from BC, Canada
I purchased the K9 Mobility powder for my 4 dogs. I have noticed an improvement in the activity of my 4 dogs, and that they have more energy and move about more easily than before.
Hello, all. First of all, I love your products. I have shared the food with my girls who are now buying it for their dogs. My Ben, who has skin cancer, was supposed to be gone by August 2010, but he is still thriving. The vet says his organs are perfect, heart great, fur is beautiful and he looks better now than before! He still has skin cancer but it has slowed down and he is functioning, eating, eliminating perfectly. His blood work is great and vet is amazed. I'm just sorry I didn't find these products sooner because they make such a huge and obvious difference. I'm enjoying every day with my Ben, large mixed black lab, and he is enjoying life. I tell everyone that dog foods 'over the counter' are very bad and that they have to learn to read the ingredients and see for themselves. Again, thank you for this much time of extending Ben's life. I hope he makes it through as I'm treating him as best I can (good water, etc.)Thanks, all.
After doing some research online regarding options in caring for (and hopefully keeping her happy and a bit healthier as long as possible) in dealing with my dog, Cricket's, bone cancer I called BirkDale with some additional questions. They were very sympathetic and extremely helpful with suggestions regarding the proper nutrition and nutrients that might be helpful for Cricket. I was really impressed that they suggested it might be more economical for me to get natural food at my local pet store (to avoid excessive shipping costs) and even gave me the names of several brands to try. They did, however send a sample of their "PetMix" food along with the Critical Care Power Pack that I ordered. I was amazed that the package arrived within two days so I could get her started on the regimen right away. Cricket seems to prefer the BirkDale food over the natural kibble that I got at the store so I plan to order more of that from BirkDale. In addition, although she's still limping, she seems to be a bit peppier than she had been recently. She even "insisted" on walking around the lake at the park over the weekend, rather than just going into the dog park area to sit with me, so I'm hopeful that this is a good sign that the regimen is beginning to help already.
Very nice and knowledgeable. Thinking about selling their products in my store. Great product
An informative website,very responsive staff, fast shipping times, excellent products, all around a very impressive online purchasing experience. Have placed 3 orders so far and intend to continue to do so. Am referring colleagues and friends.
My 6 year old beagle was diagnosed with a mast cell tumor in July 2009. It appeared seemingly out of nowhere on her back left legluckily, my vet biopsied it and determined it was probably a mast cell tumor. She had her first surgery done by him, but the pathology came back as unclean margins. I researched right away and discovered the Critical Care power-packs by Birkdale Medicinals and got her started right away. She had a follow-up surgery by specialists at a university and was given a good report. To this day there has been no recurrence of her cancer. After switching her food to the Petmix and another grain-free dry food, she actually lost over 2 pounds with no increase in activity! These products are wonderful and have given my beagle better health, and a longer life. Thanks!
Our little Pug, Butterbean, was diagnosed with MCT this past Spring. She was administered 2 rounds of 2 different kinds of chemo and she did not respond well, in fact her white cell count plummeted and she became gravely ill. We were told by our Vet to take her home and enjoy the limited time we had left with her. I immediately got on the internet and found your web site. I read everything you had on your site about the Cannine supplements for critically ill (cancer) pets. I was so impressed by your assurance that we would be able to see a remarkable difference within a very short while, I had to order the Critical Care package - Butterbean is only 5 years old and normally is very robust and completely happy. She hardly moved and even refused food - which, as you know is unheard of in the world of Pugs. Within one week of taking your supplements, she had changed dramatically and was back to eating with vigor and scratching the floor by her bowl most of the day for more (PetMix)and she even gets very excited when we tell her it is time for her medicine (your supplements and a few other prescribed meds). Your commitment to helping critically ill and healthy pets (to avoid cancer) is remarkable, and we as owners of a beloved pet with plaqued with cancer are eternally grateful for adding time to her life with us. I can recommend these supplements hightly to anyone who wants to help their pet recover and/or extend their lives.
I think this is a great company. Service is great. Product is great. Can not ask more of them.
My wire fox terrier refuses to eat. She also has anal gland issues attributed to allergies in processed dog food grains. I fed her this food and she ate what was put in front of her and actually begged for more. She spun and spun in front of the fridge until I opened the door and gave her a second helping. She is much more calm and satisfied, not so itchy, and seems to be a much more content dog than I have seen in three years. Her skin is not pink anymore and she (and I) are happy! Thank you thank you thank you for this wonderful food. Also, my package arrived in excellent condition and in 2 days. Excellent!
Very Helpful & Kind. Time well spent talking on the phone. It was very informative talking to you Tom. Thank You Again!
Excellent experience!! They are friendly and very knowledgeable about the products they sell. I got all my questions about dog food choices answered and feel that I made a good informed descision in the end. I have already recommended them to my friends and family.
Great service. really care for their customer
I love going into this shop. It feels more like a boutique than a pet store; but not stuffy. Customer Service A+, Selection A+, Staff Knowledge A+ and we love the cat Charlie! The store is not overcrowded so your mind does not have to filter too much. Everything in the shop works synergistically to give our pets the most natural care. I will be back soon to buy the water bowl fountain and our pugs won't let me forget to buy their food!
Dear Tom: Thank you for products and making them so easy to purchase. Unfortunately, I may not be purchasing any more product for a whilemy Bugg is sliding downhill pretty quick. I'm sure your products helped me enjoy my baby a few extra precious months. Thanks again. Sincerely, ~joyce
Good prices for great food and very friendly staff! I wont buy my dogs food anywhere else.
Have tried several brands and flavors marketed to be the best..None of them worked out for long, allergies continued, GI upset with some etc. I have 2 mini schnauzers and they love love the food. I have peace of mind knowing that their food is fresh and healthy and I am serving them something that they loveThey know when I am in kitchen preparing our supply and cant wait until cool enough to eat. They clean their plate until there is nothing left-skin and coat is now in great condition and the one who was constantly licking her feet has almost stopped. I can not get over how they both LOVE the food.. Had been on internet researching homemade dog food when I discovered Birkdale mix..I tried the free sample we are hooked!
How bout the Gentleman that hsa sold me the stuff. Great Guy Great Store!!!! aLL i CAN SAY IS SO FAR SO GOOD.
Tom has been very helpful with my most recent order. My dog loves this food and he is a much happier dog since feeding this to him. I appreciate his personal response when my order was sent the wrong way.
I was feeding my dog a well known canned organic dog food. You would think that the manufacturers would be as concerned about the safety of their food as I was. They weren't. My dog got very sick from Salmonella tainted food. After this happened, I looked on line for dog food recipe. I was going to make my own food. Purely by accident, I found the website for Birkdale Mix. I order 4 of the 2 lb mixes. You add 5lb of hamburger and a gallon of water and one of the 2lb birksdale mixes. The food is wonderful. My dog loves it. It has everything she needs for a healthy diet. She has more energy, her coat is shiny and she is back to her old playful self. I have peace of mind that she is getting fresh healthy all natural dog food. I know what goes in it, because I make it myself. I am extremely pleased with this product. Thank you Birkdale Medicnals for giving me back a healthy happy dog.
Very helpful and fast service. Great place to do business with!
My dogs love the mix. It is really easy to make. I mix ground turkey to the mix.
Great store - the employees/owner was very helpful!
Great products and service.
I recently adopted a dog from a local shelter and upon bringing him home, noticed that he had very soft stools. When I took him running, he had to go at least two to three times and it was always very loose, to the point that I feared that he would become dehydrated. Any time he was excited, he also would end up having the same trouble. I began to wonder if it was the dog food. I was feeding him Solid Gold dog food, a high end brand. I decided to switch to a new proteins source within the brand and did so very gradually. It did not work. I then switched to a very expensive limited ingredient made by Natural Balance, and not only did he drink buckets full of water, but the diarrhea persisted and seemed to get worse. He was becoming lethargic and his hair coat was so dull. I decided to try a homemade diet as a last resort. I began researching how to provide proper nutrition when I cam across Birkdale Pet Mix. I live right by the store, so I thought that I would give it a try. AMAZING!!!!!!! No more diarrhea.none.he has great solid stools and I could not be happier! I highly recommend that anyone suffering the same problem gibe this food a try!
My shih tzu, Hershey, was diagnosed one year ago this month with lymphoma. I was devastated when I got the diagnosis. I refused to put my dog through chemo and immediately began to research canine cancer on the internet. BirdDale's site popped up. One of the reviews talked about how their dog had been diagnosed with lymphoma four years ago and was doing so well. I couldn't order PetMix or the canine power pack supplments quick enough. Once I became educated about grain-free food, I'd never feed my dogs anything else. I also took Hershey to a holistic vet and told him about the supplements and the food I was feeding him. He said that his lymphoma was in remission. I highly recommend PetMix for your healthy dog as well. My two healthy dogs eat it plus I give them the DailyCare supplements, ProBiotix and omega. I am so thankful for Birkdale Medicinals.
I have been a customer for close to 3 years now and have always had great customer service. Tom calls me whenever there might be a way to reduce the cost of my order due to bundling products or shipping differently. The Pet Mix is great my dos love it! One of my dogs has had a lymphoma diagnosis for 2 years now and you'd never know it. The Cancer Power Packs really work well. My vet is very impressed with Birkdale products as well.
I inquired about dog cancer on the web and this site came up. My 14 year old female Jack Russell Jackie had developed a lump in her groin area that had turned into a tennis ball sized tumor within two weeks. I ordered the food for her initially in hopes of a miracle but unfortunately it was too late for her so I was never able to see how this food could help her. I do have two healthy dogs at home that are a little younger but one is a picky eater. I decided to cook the food and see how it works for them. They loved it, they look forward to their breakfast and dinner every day. I can tell the difference in their energy levels and my Roxy who was slightly overweight has trimmed down to where she should be for her breed. I have no more throwing up or diarrea problems with either of them. I truly believe this food is the best thing out there and would recommend to anyone. I will never feed my dogs commercial dog food again.
Super fast shipping. Always friendly, helpful and informative. Couldn't ask for more!
Excellent product and excellent customer service. The entire group is both knowledgeable and helpful. I have referred many to them already!!!!
I wish I'd discovered Birkdale before it was critical that I take action and provide my pet with the absolute best nutrition choice possible. I typed in dog cancer & found your site. The info was invaluable & most impcomforting & offered hope.i bought the critical care package & give my dog each day. Also, thank you for the Free samples. My dog loves the dry veggie/ supplement mix which I add ground beef so much that now its a healthy and tasty alt to her previous dry diet. there's no upset stomach, she inhales it & I'm happy that I can give her the nutritional support she needs as we battle cancer. Highly highly recommend trying these products. Thanks for Educating me & giving me hope at the very least.
5 months ago boxer,Greta, developed what looked like an injury on the tip of her nose. I though she had scraped it chasing squirrels or lizards in the back yard, but it kept growing. 3 months ago she was diagnosed with lymphoma of the skin. She had a tumor on the top of her nose the size of a silver dollar and 2 mm high. It was a raw, bloody, open wound and was spreading down the side of her nose. I was devastated. The vet said she had 4-6 months to live. I went on line searching for help and found K9 Critical Care, transfer factor, Omega 3 and ProBiotix. I also switched her dog food as recommended. We saw improvement within 2 weeks. 3 weeks ago it was pink new skin and now, though a bit of her nose is gone, there is no visible tumor at all. I took her to the vet 2 weeks ago for a check up because I wanted to know if she had something in her stomach or if she was just getting fat. Turns out she had gained 5 lbs. The vet said this cancer is a nasty one and can spread anywhere in the body. He had never seen a dog this far into this disease looking so well and asked me for information about what I was treating her with. Thank you!
The product arrived quickly to Alaska. I was happy about that, and also that they will ship via USPS.It was So easy to make, compared to the hours I would spend each month making my Jack Russell's food. I was skeptical as she is a picky eater, but she loved it right away. The only thing I am wondering about is the orange stuff in her stool because the same orange stuff is in the food, so clearly it is undigestable.
Great to work with! Nice to find a place with healthy options for my dog. He loves the Petmix!
My greyhound, Sunshine, has never been a good eater to the point of hand feeding each meal if it was a meal she would even eat. The first day I added the mix to her kibble she came to the bowl and ate it all. Knowing her to eventually snub it after a few days, she did not. It's been a month and still eating and putting on weight.
We have 3 large breed older dogs and they have always shed heavily and tended to gain weight during the winter months. Boss was constantly chewing on his paws. Since starting them on your allergy, mobility, and pet mix I have notice a huge difference in all three. Shedding has decreased, they have lost weight, our oldest acts like a puppy again, and Boss is not chewing on his paws as much. I highly recommend these products.
I am very impressed. My 8 yr old female lab had an osteosarcoma and her back leg was amputated. I was told it was very agressive, one of the worst and fastest our vet had seen. We put her on the k9 critical care, and changed food, etc. Its been over almost 5 months and she is testing great with blood work, and my vet says she has no sounds of anything in her lungs. My vet thinks we got it. Bottom line, I was told to enjoy what could be 2 months with her, and she is full of life, vigor and runs just as fast as her brother. IF its a back leg, its amazing how little impact it can have on the life of your dog! That was the biggest surprise. The second biggest is that she is thriving! One never knows with these things, but I have HOPE, and that is priceless to me. THANK YOU for what you are doing, from the bottom of BOTH of our hearts!
Buddy, our 11 yr old mutt, and Camo, our 1.5 yr old mutt have been on the Birkdale Pet Mix for over 2 months now. What a dramatic change! Buddy was losing weight, clumps of hair falling out and on thyroid meds when we started him on Birkdale. In less than a week, his appetite returned, he started gaining back muscle tone and his energy weight through the roof. No more hair falling out either. We decided to take him off his thyroid meds with this new diet and he hasn't needed them since! He is like a new dog! Our young pup, Camo, literally jumps up in the air every time its meal time - he loves the food that much! (When I first opened the dry mix, he tried to eat it out of the bag!) They both are like new dogs and we are so thankful we found a healthy, no-grain diet that they look forward to eating every day! Thank you!
This is the food I have always dreamed I would find for my dog. The old girl is as healthy as can be and friskier than ever. You can tell when a dog eats as they are meant to eat. We even have a lot of fun cooking it! THANK YOU so much for such a wonderful choice for our beloved pets!
My Success with AllerG My seven-year old Labrador Retriever, Polly, was experiencing significant skin irritations that were causing her to itch all over hind quarters. As a result of all the scratching she was doing, she also lost patches of hair and her coat lost its luster and shine. I contacted Birkdale Medicinals and they suggested that I test out AllerG, a specific supplement designed to help improve canine allergies. AllergG contains a uniquely blended formula that is made from sea vegetables, which have concentrated sources of minerals, such as iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron. These minerals help to stimulate healthy functioning of the endocrine system and help to temper allergy symptoms while also reducing shedding and improving the health of dog’s skin and coat. I followed the directions on the product’s label and within three weeks, Polly’s itching stopped and her hair started growing back. Four months later, Polly is still showing no signs of the allergy that had caused her so much discomfort. Thanks so much Birkdale!
I love this dog food! My Boston has terrible allergies & this is the only food he has eaten & not broken out! My other dog loves it too! The site is easy to navigate and I feel like I'm giving the best to my two furry friends.
Very caring about your dog's health;they had their Dr. Harvey call me to advise supplements (other than their own) for Emily's multiple problems; I recommend them highly & will continue using their products which are A plus quality.
very fast service! great products, has definitely given some energy back to our little fur angel who's fighting hemangiosarcoma.thank you.
I have 6 dogs. My problem was I made all 8 lbs at once with the 5 lbs of meat. My dogs were not that enthusiastic about it and only ate if they were not fed anything else. I felt that the ratio was not very appealing and I don't feel like starving my dogs to get them to eat it. I will get more but I will change the recipe maybe a cup or two to 3 lbs of meat and mix in some gravy.
My experience with Birkdale Medicinals was wonderful. My package was missing and Mr. Peters did everything he could to help me find it.His products are saving my dog's life.
Great products! Super fast shipping:) Our dogs love BirkDale's pet mix. Thank you
My 8 year old Rottie/Lab mix was diagnosed with lymphoma in Nov 2009. I immediately went online to find out how I could help combat it. I found K9 Immunity, read the testimonials and gave it a shot. On last report (Feb 2010) my dog's CBC bloodwork came back as a healthy dog - all within range! My Vet now recommends your product to other clients whose pets have cancer.
My dog enjoys the Pet Mix. She is doing very well on it and I feel good about giving it to her.
excellent customer service. I was encouraged to call and speak to an expert before purchasing and he provided important information that guided my purchase. The products arrived quickly and were as indicated.
I have been feeding BirkDale diet to my 5 dogs(3 tervs / 2 corgi's) for about 4 months. They love the food. It is really pretty easy to prepare, and one 2 lb. bag lasts 7 days. Their teeth are much cleaner looking then they were before. I have a 15 year old terv, and like the idea of feeding her more holistically. I do mix the BirkDale with Kibble (taste of the Wild) because I'm feeding so much to so many. I did the math, and it costs me just over one dollar per day per dog to feednot bad in my book.
Delivery of product has always been good, but one should know that it's the fact that people pick up the phone that really sets them apart. I have a dog with cancer and they were great about taking a moment to work with me and help me understand their products.
Great Product! My dogs are nuts over it and the grain free diet has helped with their allergies. The instructions are very easy and I will continue to buy this product! Thanks!
Excellent customer service. Good products.
Purchase experience was good though a bit pricey. They worked to reduce the cost by providing custom quantity. Cannot speak to quality of product as dog, Flo had to be euthanized shortly after receiving product.
I have been doing business with BirkDale for about 18 months and have had outstanding service. My dog was diagnosed with cancer and given 6 months to live. That was 18 months ago when I started with BirkDale's food and supplements. She is still alive and doing well. Thank You BirkDale and Tom Peters.
I am extremely happy with Birkdale Medicinals. I started working with them in November of 2008 after my dog, Snookums, had surgery for primary lung cancer. The person who worked with me was so supportive and helpful, made good suggestions, and was very positive. I use the supplements(K9 Transfer Factor, K9 Bio-Silymarin, K9 Immunity and K9 Omega) and the dog food mix for Snookums and have been very pleased with the results. I usually order by phone because I like to talk to the staff and seek their advice with whatever questions have arisen since the last order. They are patient and have made numerous helpful suggestions. The order always arrives promptly and well packed. I have moved my other dog,Viva, onto the dog food and am considering several supplements for her after consultation with the vets. My veterinarian has read the Birkdale materials and has supported me on this effort. So far, my Snookums is doing very well and hopefully, with the care I'm giving her from Birkdale, she will continue to do well. And, last but certainly not least,the dogs love those homemade dog treats! :>)
I have had an excellent experience with Birkdale Medicinals. Tom did a great job of explaining how these products could benefit my dog and help her fight cancer ( I initially called when she was very sick and did not have a good prognosis). We have been extremely pleased with her progress and have been loyal users of both the Critical Care and Transfer Factor for at least 6 months now. I have had a couple of times where there was a small problem with my order, but both times they took care of the issue right away, and handled the matter very nicely. For those of us with sick dogs, this is a wonderful product (that I truly believe works) to supplement the care you are receiving from your Vet.
My dog has Lymphoma. One of my friends suggested your company and I have been ordering the supplements and transfer factor ever since. My dog has out-lived her 6 months expected life her on earth by 6 months. I pray she continues to do so well, and I guarantee you, she will continue on these supplements. I am Registered Nurse and I am very impressed with the professionalism of Tom and his partner. Thank-you Birkdale Medicinals. I don't think my rescue lab would be alive today without your help. Marilyn Ranck, Flowery Branch, Ga.
A year ago after finding out news my little buddy Mario a Yorkshire Terrier had Lymphoma I was devistated. I went on a mission determined to help my Mario beat this. I would not listen to anyone and felt in my heart there has to be something out there and just knew with prayer and hope something special and magical could happen. While searching the internet I found Birkdale Medicinals with a heavy heart I read the wonderful stories from other people who have used their products. I truly did not know is this site was just another one of those scam sites or just a money making hoax so I decided to call and personally spoke with Tom Peters. I explained to Tom look I found out some bad news and told him all about it and was so sad and very determined to find some way to help this little special angel who has given me so many years of joy I could never pay him back for all the joy he has given me and my wife. I love this little dog with all my heart. So I explained a lot to Tom and one question I asked him. I said please tell me if this product that will help fight cancer is for real or am I throwing my money away. I asked him to please tell me if this is a scam like many things on the market because if it is please let me know this means too much to me. Tom said to me have you read the articles. I said yes and with that Tom said what does that give you? I said hope he said I wish the FDA would allow people to take this. Tom said Tony you have hope and Tom went on to tell me how important this is to him. So I took tom on his word and did what he told me. I can not thank Tom enough and if it were not for Tom I would probably not have my buddy here. Mario who has been through so much and with Toms help,lots of prayer,tons of love and HOPE, and an amazing doctor. We have given Mario the tools to fight. I am amazed every day to see what the suppliments I get from Birksdale do for Mario. Thank you Tom your a angel sent to me from heaven :) God Bless
My dogs love your food and I feel confident in serving it to them.
VERY CARING!!!!! THEY HAVE A TRUE LOVE FOR ANIMALS AND UNDERSTAND THAT ARE PETS ARE REALLY OUR FOUR-LEGGED CHILDREN. THEIR PRODUCTS ARE TOP OF THE LINE AND THEY PROVIDE YOU WITH ALL THE KNOWLEDGE YOU NEED TO HELP YOUR CHILD WITH ITS HEALTH ISSUES. THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE FOR ME AND I WISH THERE WERE MORE PEOPLE OUT IN THE ANIMAL BUSINESS THAT UNDERSTOOD, LIKE THEY DO, THAT IT IS NOT JUST A BUSINESS. THESE ANIMALS ARE LOVED AND THEY HAVE HELPED ME SHOW MY LOVE FOR MY DOG BY SHOWING THAT THEY CARE ABOUT OUR ISSUES AND ARE THERE FOR US. THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU!!!!!
First and foremost, Tom Peters is a wonderful man and I appreciate his knowledge and kind spirit. My experience with Birkdale Medicinals was very positive and the cancer diet and products were instrumental in extending the life of our beloved Hogan - a 13 year old Sheltie who was diagnosed with cancer in August 2008 and lived a good quality of life for several months more than the experts said he would. The cancer was much slower in recurring post surgery due to the supplements and diet from Birkdale. It is because of the knowledge Tom shared with us regarding commercial brand dog foods, that we now have our new Sheltie puppy, Henley on a grain-free diet for his health and quality of life. He is vibrant and thriving! Thank you, Tom Sheila and Barry Brake Clarksville, TN
Hi Tom, My husband and I both took critical care 24/7 with the colostrum for three months. I will have to admit that I was really impressed with the fact that both my husband and I never got sick with a cold or flu while we were on it. I honesty started the product because of a customer statement that it lowered his triglyceride level. I had my husband go in for a lab draw prior to starting the products, and I had him go in again to the doctor after 3 months of using the product to see if it helped with his cholesterol or triglycerides levels. Unfortunetly, my husbands lab values were unchanged in every value and remained high. But I must state that my husband did not change his eating habits much, but he does eat generally healthy anyway. He does exercise a few times per week as well, but is not consistent with that either. So over all, I am impressed with critical care 24/7 (used with the colostrum)in its ability to keep away colds and flu, but Im disappointed that it did not change my husbands cholesterol/triglyceride levels like it has done for prior customers. But if your looking for a product that will keep you healthy in cold or flu season, I think its a great product!!
I was very happy with BirkDale Medicinals right from my very first phone call. Our dog, Sammy was diagnosed with cancer this spring. She was not given very long to live. We turned to BirkDale to try to give her immune system a boost to fight the Cancer. I was only sorry I hadn't found out about their products sooner. Sammy lived until the Fall. Her diagnosis was grave, but the quality of her life was so much better after changing her diet and giving her suppliments. She was our perky old puppy again for a little while. I would say although her Cancer was not erased, nothing could have done that, Birkdale products improved the quality of her life for her last few months. Having a little more quality time with her made us all very happy.
I love the Petmix and feel I am doing everything possible for my dogs to prevent cancer and keep them trim and healthy. I lost a dog to cancer several years before I knew about Birkdale products and am so happy now that I am doing everything possible to prevent that tragedy again. I would like the shipping to cheaper is my only complaint
My experience with BirkDale has been very rewarding. I needed specific medications quickly, and BirkDale had everything and got the order out to me immediately. I feel their prices are very fair and their specials great!
So far I don't have a lot to report except that Bailey, our Golden Retriever loves the taste of the K9 Critical Care Supplements and the Transfer Factors. He thinks of them as treats as he chews all 9 of them plus the transfer factor. We are praying for a miracle and hoping our change to a grain free diet and giving the supplements will keep him with us for a long time. Oh, he loved the dog food that was mixed up too! Thank you for enclosing it in our shipment.
I purchased the K-9 Immunity Packs and the Pet Mix for my Black Lab who had lymphoma. He was undergoing chemo at the time. There was a noticable difference in the way he tolerated the treatments after using the K-9 Immunity and he really loved the Pet Mix. Sadly the cancer eventually won out but I believe the K-9 Immunity gave him a better quality of life. I plan on giving my new pup the Pet Mix when he gets older. When calling Birkdale to discuss their products, I felt there was a genuine concern on their part for my dog.
Tom, All I can say is your product has save me alot of money. Not only in unhealthy dog food, but my "SNOW", hasn't had an allergy shot or benedryl in almost a year, since using your pet mix and cooking their food. You and your staff are genuine and care about your service. You and your products have not let me down. Don't change a thing!
our Lab was given 3 to 6 months to live because of an agressive form of cancer. We immediately researched alternative foods/supplements to help him because we didn't want to alter his lifestyle by using chemo. It was the best decision we ever made. We started feeding him the Birkdale food mix (which he loves by the way) and the assortment of supplements recommended to fight cancer. He is beyond the 6 months, has not lost weight or muscle mass and has more energy than he had a year ago. he acts like a puppy sometimes. In addition Birkdale's customer service and reliability has been outstanding. I heartily recommend their products.
Very easy to place order. I placed the order on-line on a Sunday, and the product was delivered in 2-3 days. Very fast & efficient! I will be happy to order from Birkdale again, and I will in the very near future.
First of all I want to say that Tom Peters is a most kind and compassionate person who really cares about the service and the welfare of your pets , very few companies could hold a candle to birkdale. My Benny had a tumour on the leg , and also cancer in other parts of the body. I bought the immune tablets for him and his whole well being improved ( sent before and after photos) all within two weeks. His cancer was advanced and had I started this sooner I am sure he would have recovered or the cancer at least halted. The vet had told me he had weeks to live , but these tablets gave him months of improved life. These days when money has to be spent wisely , it is worth it to go with a reputable company. I will have more dogs in the future , and I will be a birkdale customer. The company with heart deserves to have continued support and prosperity. Thank you for your kindness and amazing product during the most difficult time in my life with my beloved Ben..namaste. Rosemary Fox
BirkDale Medicinals provided courteous, personal, efficient service. I was nearly out of Orijen for our German Shepherd since my previous supplier ran out of inventory without notifying customers. I desperately needed the food since our Shepherd must have this particular kibble due to her health condition. BirkDale responded! I received the food in one day without being charged for premium delivery. They understood my dilemma and won a new customer. If anything could be improvedit would be to broaden their inventory. We also purchase Evo and Innova for our cats and would love to buy it from BirkDale. Keep up the good work and thanks. Norma Sweeny Cleveland, OH
I have a lot of faith in your product. We ordered the K-9 Critical Care Supplements and they came promptly. The contents are just what any dog with cancer needs. And the price was reasonable. Unfortunately, our 12 year old Golden had to be euthanized due to an edema that formed in the leg where the tumor was. He was spry and healthy in every other way but it was evident that the leg was causing him discomfort. That said, I will use your maintenance products with our dogs in the future before they get cancer or get as bad as our Buster did. We just did not know about your fine company.
I can't honestly say if the medicine worked or not, my baby girl Lucky past away before we could even see a difference.
Tom's help and his product has been amazing. My dog Diva was diagnosed with B Cell Leukemia back in June 2008 and was given 6 weeks to live, its been a year and a half and she is still with me and doing well (knock on wood)!I continue to give her Birkdale Medicinals Cancer Power Pack. Thank you for your amazing product!
this is kimmy cancer free. thank to critcalcare products. thank you TOM
Sage is doing fabulous. I’m pretty sure you spoke with Margo Roman, her vet. Sage has had a Lymphoma diagnosis for almost 2 years now. And she acts like a 3 year old. Turns 10 in June. Off to take a walk with my precious girl.
Attached a couple of pictures of Sage and Paco (our newest boy)
Thanks for everything,
Snickers has been taking your product since January of this year and loves it. He is a year old yorkie who was diagnosed with Stage 3 mass cell cancer and was only given 9 weeks to live in December. We just went for his check up and his vet was shocked to see how well he is doing. He acts like a puppy and they found no signs of his cancer during his check up. It has been 10 months now and I truly feel blessed to have found your product and still have my healthy and happy best friend with me. Thank you so much. I will send you a picture to prove just how well he looks and acts.
Thank you. I've been using your power pack and your pet mix for about a year; since my dog had his first mast cell tumor removed. He just had another removed, but I think it was there before the one on his leg but we thought it was just a fatty tumor. It tuned out that there was a MCT hiding inside.
Do you have any stats from users about the effectiveness of the program and the food? My dog Riley hadn't been to doggie day care for months, but when I took him yesterday the staff told me that he looks younger to them every time they see him. I think that is a great testimony, but I'd love to hear any other info you may have.
I don't feel good about chemo because I'm not sure it is worth the side effects.
Any info you can offer will be appreciated. All my dogs scarf your food down as soon as the dishes hit the floor!
On the website there are at least 0 letters from customers. They all do not have happy endings, but all of them have the same theme. Every dog was helped in some way. Some had their life's extended way beyond every prediction, some only had the last part of their lives made more comfortable. Most people do not share their stories, but I have no doubt what is happening because their first calls are in desperation, and months and months pass and they are still buying supplements and food.
This (PetMix) is a GREAT diet even for dogs that don't have cancer. My dog no longer sheds and the stool is minimal compared to dog foods that are mostly grain.
I cannot tell enough people about PetMix and what it has done for my dogs. I have three Bichon Frise, all are rescued. All three dogs come from puppy mill stock and were neglected and/or abused. My oldest is 17 yrs. old and has advanced inoperable mammary gland cancer. My middle pup is almost 13 yrs. old and only has three teeth and my youngest is 9 yrs. old and has food allergies and IBD. So as you can see, feeding them has been a challenge and has involved lots of food changes and experimentation. Oh, and did I mention that the youngest is prone to stones.
While reading letters on a canine cancer list, I ran across information on your product. I was particularly interested as I read that the product also helped dogs with food allergies. I read reviews and reviewed all of the information on the site and decided to give it a try. Instead of ordering online (as I had a few questions), I called to place my order. A delightful lady answered (without a telemarketer voice) and was very helpful. I ordered three bags on the spot, along with some grain-free treats and ProBiotix.
I am here to tell you that my dogs loved it and have been eating it for the last three weeks! I have seen a major difference in the oldest and the youngest. My cancer pup has had more energy and her interest in family activities has increased significantly. She is also deaf and blind, so she tends to find safety spots and stay there. She no longer lies around, and instead, begins whining and "talking" at treat and mealtime. Of most significant improvement, is my youngest pup (food allergies, IBD and stones). We have had NO bloody diarrhea, vomiting, little scratching and a whole new personality, like that of his younger self. And finally, the middle pup only has the three teeth, so he happily gobbles it up, without the difficulties that come with having to gum food bowl contents.
Once again, I want to thank you for your product quality and the support and information your site provides. I have enjoyed the benefits of home cooked food, without intense labor. It freezes beautifully, so I make lots in advance. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I recently switched my brand of dry cat food from Nutro to Orijen, and I can't tell you how glad I am that I did.
First of all, my cat LOVES her new food, and is scarfing it down like crazy! But more important to me is the fact that her stools are now large, substantial, and tubular, unlike what they were before - far smaller, much more pellet-like, and (for want of a better term) "gooey". This is important because larger, more substantial stools help cats keep their anal glands free of fluid build-up and ultimate impaction. Anyone who (like me) has had to take a cat to the vet every 3 months or so to have its anal glands expressed knows how inconvenient this is for the pet owner, and how uncomfortable (and even painful) it is for the cat.
Thanks for a great product!
Hoping this will prove a blessed day for you, I remain . . .
Very gratefully yours,
Thank you so much for your products which have, without condition, improved Scotty's life. . .Scotty was diagnosed via catscan with nasal adenocarcinoma (cancerous growth in his left nostril) in Sept. of 2008. My husband and I decided after much consideration not to have him undergo the traditional radiation/chemotherapy treatments because we felt it would be too hard on him. That being said, Scotty's doctors predicted he would only live for another three months.
In desperation, I found your site and immediately ordered your product and the results have been amazing! Not only did Scotty suarpass his three month life sentence, but he's now in his tenth month after diagnosis, and he's a very happy dog!
Here's a photo of Scotty with his brother Charlie walking in the park. Doesn't he look good? Thanks again very much!
Thanks so much for all of your advice and help. Foster lost his battle to brain cancer on April 27. It was a devastating lost, but I am convinced your products kept him with us longer and better than his time would have been without them. Again, thanks for everything, but I am sure you can understand my hope of not needing your services on my new rescue. I am hoping to keep him healthy and cancer free for a long time!
Snookums' lung X-ray looked really good--best since surgery according to the vet who is very supportive of what I'm doing with your products. She's eating the mix with 8 % lean ground beef, getting the Transfer Factor in her food (won't touch it as a treat), same with Omega. The Immunity capsules are still a challenge but we do them!
Earlier this month Snookums was coughing again and I was really worried. X-rays again and better yet! Sent to the specialists in Tucson who did her surgery and they agreed that these were THE BEST LUNG X-rays since the surgery in October! Our "monsoon" season has since started here and her coughing stopped----conclusion is she was allergic to something blooming or seeding. Doing fine.
As I said, cautiously optimistic, but thought you'd like to know how we're doing.
I'm so thankful that I found your site and talked to you about my boxer. Boomer is doing great with the medicines and his new food! He loves his food it's unbelievable how much it has changed everything. He no longer chews at his feet his skin and coat are great and is more energetic!
Alright, Boomer had a mast cell tumor on his belly and on top of his foot. We got them removied and I put him on the one month power pack, with the PetMix and Taste of the Wild. He would always get sick from almost every food we would give him and he has not gotten sick for the past 5 weeks since we switched him to everyhting!
Hope this helps!
Hello Tom & Jeff,
I had a concern about the last shipment of K9 Immunity. I had to throw more than 1/2 of the pills away. I open them up and mix it with my dachshunds food. I pulverize them in a mortar, which makes it very easy to mix. However, this batch, and quite a few from the prior batch were hard (like cement), and I was unable to pulverize OR cut them with a knife.
If I was unable to do that, there is no way she would be able to digest them where they would have any benefit to her. If I had not opened these, I never would have known. When I threw away so many from the last batch, I honestly didn't think much of it because some that I opened were fine, but after throwing so many from this batch away, I decided to write. Do you think because they have been on the shelf too long, that may have caused this?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for your letter. Because of your concern and that of many other customers regarding K9 Immunity, we developed K9 Critical Care. Within a short time we will also offer K9 Critical Care in a capsule but we guarantee this will not happen with our product.
I just had to share with you and the rest of the staff. Snookums had another lung xray Wed and the vet said it was the "best since her surgery" last October. We've been on your products since before Christmas with my vet's approval. He's amazed at how well she has done--six months now and clear! Am cautiously optimistic, but so happy. She and Viva and i are walking about a mile to mile 1/2 every day. She's eating well and taking all the Birkdale supplements plus the food mix with ground beef. Immunity capsules are still a bit of a challenge, but we're doing it! I open the Omega and mix with the food.

Dear Birkdale Pet Mix,
It's true! My doggie LOVES you! He asks to eat now by standing by the refrigerator waiting to taste you again! He gobbles you up, takes a big drink of water and nestles down in his bed for a nap. His ears are not red and no longer smell this is after only 11 days! He has a new light about him and so do I. I feel so much better knowing his body is getting wholesome food.
Thanks so much,
Duske and Krysta

2 weeks ago I told you the story of my 2 goldens and you asked me to E-mail it to you. We found your product while doing research on dog cancer. Our female, Amber had a very invasive form of skin cancer. Unfortunately, we found out too late and lost her 6 months after. Max is our male. He has had a life-long battle with allergies. After lots of tests we were told he was allergic to most animal protein, so I ended up feeding both Max & Amber a vegetarian diet. I now know how wrong that was. Long story short, I started feeding Max your pet mix WITH GROUND MEAT and his skin is no longer pink, his hair doesn't feel coarse anymore, in fact, it feels like a bunny, and he no longer itches. He actually looks healthier. I have a feeling he is going to live to be much older than our dear, sweet Amber did, she was 11 and Max is now 10. Thank you so much for all you do for these great companions we have.
Amy, Greg, Max & now Chita (new puppy)
Hello, I just re-ordered the Cancer- Power- Pak for our little Hattie (12 yrs. old). She has been taking the Power-Pak for the past 2 month, and I am thrilled and happy to report that Hattie is doing great. Hattie still coughs once in a while, but she is full of energy and as happy as can be.
Next month is Hattie's yearly check-up, shots etc. and she will have an X-Ray again.
I will let you know how it turns out.
Thank you for your help ,
Hattie and Elizabeth
I placed a custom 3 month order with you last November for my black lab, Magic. She was undergoing chemo at that time and still is. You were very kind in tailor making the order for her weight and I am hoping you can do that again as it saved me quite bit of money. You spent quite a bit of time with me on the phone explaining K-9 Supplements.
I have to tell you that my dog is doing very well on the chemo and has been ever since she started on the K-9 Supplements. She is up to 72 pounds now so I assume that you would want to increase her to 7 pills a day from 6? She is also on the Transfer factor and the Omega caps. She LOVES the Immune Assist treats too that you were so wonderful to include.I have to tell you a strange story regarding the K-9 Supplements that even has the vet scratching his head.
Prior to Magic's diagnosis and subsequent chemo her muzzle had been turning quite gray. As she started her chemo and K-9 Supplements we noticed a MARKED decrease in her gray muzzle hair about 3-4 weeks after starting all these supplements and chemo. I noticed it first then my husband noticed (I hadn't even mentioned it to him). I pointed it out to my vet who then started really watching it. He finally admitted that it was true.her gray hair was VERY diminished on her face. He did not have an explanation but wouldn't attribute it to the K-9 or the chemo. He truly was astonished.
Well, about 3 weeks ago I noticed a slow return of the gray muzzle and Magic's coat being a little duller and tons of shedding. She had also been shedding very little since the chemo and K-9 Supplements which was very unusual as she had always been a terrible shedder. Anyway, to make a long story short, when I took Magic in for blood work and a weigh in she had crossed the 70 pound mark and was in fact 72 pounds. I decided to increase her to the 7 caps a day as recommended about 10 days ago. Well, her shedding seems to have decreased, her coat looks very black and shiny and her gray muzzle is going away again!!!
I can't believe it! I am taking her for blood work this week to prepare for her next round of chemo on Thursday and I am going to show the vet! Anyway, she has or 6 treatments left and I am just praying that her lymphoma stays in remission for a decent amount of time. I will continue the supplements for the rest of her life though. I am certain of that! I will be contacting you soon regarding my next order. I didn't want to call today being Super Bowl Sunday so I thought I would email you with my intentions. I hope that you don't mind.
Thank you so much for your time,
Sally and Magic
I just want to tell you how our 10 year old lab is doing. As you know, she has been getting your Birkdale Power Pack ever since she was diagnosed about 7 months ago with a nasal chondro-sarcoma. We had her to the vet for her annual check-up last week, and I am knocking wood as I tell you what they wrote in their report: "FEELS GOOD, NO SYMPTOMS OF NASAL TUMOR CURRENTLY. NO SYMPTOMS OF ARTHRITIS. DOING WELL CURRENTLY. SUCH A NICE DOG!" That's a quote, and I just had to share it with you. No surprise that we continue our Birkdale Medicinals.
I have now been giving "Ruby" my vizla your k9 for 1 days and the results are remarkable. My vet was expecting me to bring her in to put her to sleep. When I brought her in to remove her surgery stiches he said "what did you do?" So I showed him your K9 product plus the 4life Transfer and he asked me for a copy of the info page you sent me.
I was so glad to talk to you a couple of Sundays ago when you happened to be in the office. Ruby is like her old self again. I am feeding her lots of protein like you said. I wish I could find a good dog food so I don't cook two meals a day for her. She does not like the n/d can food. The hemionsircoma tumor was not removed, so I am hoping that following you suggestions of antioxidants and diet will take care of her cancer. I can't believe how well she looks! As far as the vet was concerned it was a matter of "weeks".
Ruby is a beautiful red Vizla with long ears and a cinnamon coat. Intelligent and energetic. I have kept her indoor for a month, so she would not bleed internally from the tumor. THANK YOU! I would like to be one more success story on your web site!
My Chocolate Labrador passed away last October. He was nearly 1 years old! After he was diagnosed with a malignant tumor, we put him on the Immune Assist for Canines and we saw dramatic improvement. Not only did his tumor shrink, his coat was shiny and full, he gained his appetite, and he even started growing brown hair where it used to be gray! I truly believe that if he wasn't on this supplement, he would have left us a lot sooner. His improvement and his prolonged life inspired my whole family to take the supplements!! Hence the big orders!
In fact, my friend's father had stomach cancer, and was going through chemotherapy when I introduced this product to him. After taking the Colostrum and Critical Care for a month, his white blood cell count dramatically improved, and even his doctor was astounded! He didn't even lose a lot of physical strength. My cousin started taking it after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She's been on chemo, but she hasn't lost much stamina, and she already is starting to grow her hair back! She is absolutely thrilled! Meanwhile, I have had some cervical issues due to HPV. After taking my Critical Care and Colostrum for half a year, I went back for a check-up and my doctor happily reported to me that I am no longer in this high risk group because my immune system has improved dramatically. It's an incredible feeling! I have to say, I also get a ton of compliments on my hair--lots of volume and luster, and I even noticed my few gray hairs that I had are gone!
I want to thank you for this amazing line of products. We all feel safe taking them as well because it's organic and made here in the U.S. I am most grateful for the time I got to share with my beloved dog--surely it would not have been possible without this wonderful line of supplements. It gave him life, a whole year longer!
With much gratitude,
Hi Tom, Merry Christmas!
Thanks to your food and medicine, Mac is still with us ! Please send me another One Month Medium Dog Cancer Power Pack.Thank you,Suzanne
I promised you to write the story about Max. Also you see attach photos: Photo one is Max in the backyard. Photo two is after Max had radiation treatment on his bone cancer on September, 2008. Max is a 10 years and 8 months old Great Pyrenees Mountain Dog. I had him while he was two months old.
First, Max was diagnosed for bone cancer last August , 2008. Vet wanted to perform amputation on his leg in order to help him to live another 4-10 months. Otherwise, he would live for up to three more months without surgery. Well, it was a heartbroken moment for us to make decision what to do. Later we decided not to do the amputation because let him live a quality life is more important than living longer but suffering especially he is such a giant dog truly needs his four legs. No matter how painful he was from the bone cancer, he still used his four legs.
Because he was not going to get more treatment than radiation, I got help from Tom to give Max the nutrition supplement. I love Max very much and I didn't want him to suffer any pain. Max started the K9, fish oil, the factor on the beginning of September, 2008.
October, 2008 Vet found out Max had not only bone cancer (Osteosarcoma) but another two cancers: Apocrine gland adenocarcinoma of anal sac (Perianal tumor) and Splenic tumors. Because of the three types cancer, Vet decided not to do anything at all but just keeps giving Max Deramaxx Pain killer)
I can't tell you how much I cried but I insist to give him 11 pills of K9, one factor and fish oils everyday. It is not a easy job because he is too smart to spit out the pills from cream cheeses cover or peanut butter cover. But I got to be stronger than him in order to save his life.
We all thought he would not live to see the Thanksgiving but he did. He spent Thanksgiving with us and got Turkey meat as dinner. Then we celebrated Christmas Eve together.Then we celebrated New Year eve and New Year of 2009 together.
He is living the seventh month now from the date he was diagnosed cancer. Remember what the Vet said that he would have only up to three months life if we didn't do the surgery to cut off the cancer leg?
He can still walk on his four legs and we still take 10 mins walk in the neighborhood. You should see his face all smile, his tail up and he walk like flying. He even pull us to opposite direction from home while we finish the walking. He is very active, happy, energetic and alert like Guard Dog he suppose to be. And he is playful and cheerful like puppy.
K9 and Factor really works. It is miracle to us. Max takes only half pill of Deramaxx per day now and he shows no pain at all. He doesn't look any way nears to a cancer dog to us and he still eats like pig with great appetite. Of course, I give him high protein food and less grain made food.
Thanks Tom for your great help. You are a great listener and you understand.
We truly appreciate you from our bottom of our heart.
I'm writing for 2 reasons. The first is to thank you for this formula Pet Mix. My pug loves it and has no more "itchies" and has lost the desired amount of weight. He's peppy and happy all the time. He thinks he's a puppy again. We love it!! The second reason is I have been mixing in boneless, skinless chicken breast to get the lowest amount of fat since Owen was a porky puggy. Now that he's all svelte and slim, I was wondering how much fat is okay? I used about 1 and a half pounds of turkey with the remaining being chicken in my last batch and he loved it just as much as the all chicken. I don't want to cause future problems by restricting the fat in his diet too much.
thanks very much
Here are the before and after pictures of Sweetie. I don't think I need to explain anything, the pictures do it for me.
Thank you so much for your kindness when I first called regarding my dog's (Hunter) advanced Lymphoma. I know I was tearful and upset and you were a voice of calm and reason. Well, it will be a month on Tuesday, and Hunter has done a "180". When first diagnosed he had several tumors in the lymph nodes of his neck, front legs, and back, he had also lost 30 pounds. He was listless, not interested in eating, and would throw it up when he did eat. He went downhill so fast, I thought we would be putting him down within a week, even though the initial diagnosis was 4-6 weeks to live.
We immediately started researching and put him on a fresh meat, broccoli, diet. And, then we found you. Within a week of being on the K9 and transfer factor, his tumors had shrunk in half, in two weeks we could not find them. His appetite is back to normal and he's back to a healthy weight. His energy level is not completely back to what it was, but almost. We also have him on the Prednisone, but I feel safe enough to have cut the dose into a quarter of what he was initially on (in conjunction with my vet, and on a prednisone taper). Words cannot say enough about your products. At only 7 years old we were not prepared for him go- especially as we have an 11 year old dog that is his best friend.
I have every intention of using your products for the rest of his life span however long that may be- but, I am comforted by the fact that he is so much healthier.
Thanks again, and feel free to use this in your testimonials if you like.
I just placed another order for Sage. She's doing great. Thanks for everything. It's just amazing how well she's doing. All she gets is a raw food diet, your pet mix and the K-9, transfer factor and some fish oil. Her Lymphoma diagnosis was over 6 months ago but even before that her lymphocytes were elevated. Anyhow, we believe in your products and my holistic vet has asked for the name of your company and website more than once.
Hi my name is Steve, I don't normally do things like this but I had to tell you my story and give my thanks.. my dog Zeke was diagnosed with malignant histiocytosis a fast moving potent form of cancer for which there is no cure in canines..in may of 2004 Zeke stopped eating and on that day I went to work thinking he had an upset stomach/ bug or something else but when I came home he still wouldn't eat so I called my local vet who said bring him in the next day, they then did the usual tests like blood work listened to his heart etc. nothing was found except that he was showing signs of severe anemia .. pale white gums. The next day I took him to a veterinary hospital where they could do a lot more testing and had the latest equipment
Also, I wanted to get him well and get to the bottom of this,by now he was showing signs of general weakness and he was getting wobbly on his legs..they suggested an ultrasound, x-ray,more blood work,bone biopsy,and kidney values be done so they took him in and two hours later came out to see me with the most awful news I could imagine CANCER my beautiful loving Zeke has cancer they told me and if that wasn't bad enough they told me it was a type that dogs never do well with and with treatment(chemotherapy) he might live 4-months he had it in his spleen and bone marrow and his liver didn't look good either ..
I was devastated here he was doing great and then just like that he has cancer,now here I was faced with having to make a decision I didn't want to make not knowing if I wanted to put him through the side effects of chemo or not,he was 10-1/2 years old now and for a Rottie that's getting pretty near his life expectancy although I always thought he would live for ever..they told me that they didnt understand much about this form of cancer being that it is so rare so they wanted me to bring Zeke to the New England Veterinary Oncology Group a specialty hospital for animals with cancer only, I was now wishing for a ray of hope.After meeting with a doctor there he did all sorts of the same tests again to Zeke and after -hours of testing he came to me and said he did have malignant histiocytosis and gave me the same odds as the other two doctors who examined and tested him,this doctor suggested aggressive Chemo be started that day so he gave me some pills to take home with rubber gloves and instructions on administering the chemo agent..I was trembling when I got home at the thought of poisoning my loving Zeke with these drugs..
I tossed around in my head all day what I should do and decided not to give the toxic drugs to Zeke.I now turned to the internet to search about malignant histiocytosis and what I found was even more bad news most dogs live an average (with chemo)of 2-4 months and with not that great a quality of life, I now did a search on canine cancer treatments and all kinds of products started to show up and that's how I found Immune Assist.. I ordered a 360 capsule bottle, when it arrived I gave Zeke capsules in a small amount of home cooked chicken which was now all he would eat and not much of it at all, he was now down under 10 lbs in body weight and looked really bad my heart was broken just looking at him with his sad eyes.
I gave him another -capsules that night and continued with this schedule,after about 4-weeks he seemed like he was looking more energetic I didn't want to get my hopes up too high but I continued with the Immune assist and around 7-weeks later he was now eating much better and had gained back 8 of his lost pounds, I cant tell you how I feel inside I truly cant but I'm beyond happy!
It has now been 6-months since his diagnosis and he is back up to his normal weight and looks super his appetite is the best it has ever been no-one can believe it's as good as it is and his energy level is like that of when he was around 3-years old ,my vet is shocked and doesn't know what to say when I bring him in for checkups he wasn't supposed to be here but here he is and I'm so happy that words cant describe how I feel seeing him bounce back like this, there was nowhere else to turn and Zeke was going down so fast it was so sad to see him hurting like thatI'm amazed..thank you from the bottom of mine and Zekes heart for this web site and this fantastic product ..in this case it was a life saver!
Steve and Zeke

Thank you very much for your honesty, prompt help and kind words. I look forward to buying more for years to come!
We saw your display at the Cobo Hall dog show. When we got home, I ordered the free sample. Our French Bulldog loves it! My wife wants to switch her to it so I just ordered 3 bags.

I just wanted to update you on my dog Diva.
She had her blood taken on Tuesday and the vet called me last night to give me some good news finally! Her lymphocytel levels went from 120,000 down to 42,000!!! I know its due to your products!
John, I don't know if you recall speaking to me on the phone back in June. My 12 year old dog, Steppenwolph, had just been diagnosed with nasal adenocarcinoma in his left nostril, a very aggressive tumor. He had several nose bleeds prior that lead us to the cancer diagnosis. The week I received your product he had a very serious bleeding episode that put him in the ICU of a local emergency vet hospital for three days. They had a very hard time stopping the bleeding. His doctors told me to prepare for the worse. They had not seen a nasal tumor bleed like this and felt it may have progressed too far to do anything about it.
At this point, he had not seen an oncologist yet. We had been referred to the University of Georgia teaching hospital and had our first appointment scheduled the day after his release from ICU. He was very weak and I feared there wasn't anything they could do for him but I drove him to Athens, GA anyway. They gave him an exam and felt if he could take a week to recover with no new problems we could look at the possibility of radiation therapy. I continued giving him the IA, 4 caps per day. I also received some other herb treatments from another source during this week and started him on those as well. His red blood cell count improved and he started feeling much better.
On our next visit to the University they were very impressed at how well he was doing. He received a full exam including ultra sound of his organs and full pre-anesthesia work up. A CAT scan of his nose showed that the tumor had completely filled the left side of his nose but had not invaded the bone or broken passed the nasal cavity. His blood count was still low but improving daily. With the exception of the tumor and anemia he was in perfect health. We started the radiation treatments right away.
12 treatments for 4 weeks, including 10mg of Prednisone daily to decrease the tumor's inflammation and Clavamox, and antibiotic to avoid a possible secondary infection. The treatments went uneventfully with very little side effects or complications. The anesthesia three times per week barely effected him.
Once we were done he had lost a little bit of hair around his left eye and had a little swelling of his left gums. His doctors were amazed at his turn around. And so was my bank accountthe cost of the treatment was $800 less than the estimate given!! All due to the lack of "usual" problems most dogs experience he didn't have. It has now been almost two months since he finished treatment. We didn't go through the expense of more x-rays or CAT scan to see if the tumor actually shrunk. But he can breath through the left side of his nose again! No more sneezing and not a drop of blood lost since July. Steppenwolph is back to his pre cancer, happy, energetic self again. This type of cancer isn't curable with radiation. About the best it can do is give him another year or two of symptom free life. But that doesn't count the help he has gotten from the IA and other herbal treatments he has been getting all this time. And his doctors said something helped him during this period they didn't expect. I'm planning on continuing those for the rest of his life.
Thanks again. IA is a wonderful product!
Jim and Steppenwolph
While I can't prove it worked, this is what happened
Phric was diagnosed with fibrosarcoma. The tumor was surgically removed and the follow on therapy recommended was for him to undergo radiation for six weeks. We decided this would literally destroy his personality and greatly endanger him with the number of times he would be anesthetized, to say nothing of the fact a portion of him would be burned to a crisp. In the meantime I found your product and decided to try it as well as changing his diet to healthier foods, all in the name of trying to improve his immune system, which Western therapy was ignoring.
Several weeks after his surgery all looked well as we did not find evidence of other tumors or signs the cancer had invaded his organs. At that time he had been taking your K-9 for two weeks. I reduced your recommendation to a third, given he appeared not to tolerate the full dosage. A week later I found another tumor on the side of his face. It was diagnosed as more fibrosarcoma and surgery was scheduled for its removal two weeks later. A few days later it appeared the tumor was shrinking. Three days before surgery it had shrunk to a spot with no evidence of any mass. The Vet recommended it be removed anyway and sent off to pathology. The report showed no evidence of sarcoma!
The area is now completely clear with no evidence anything was there.
He has since gained some weight and is back to his goofy personality I am now a believer in polysaccharides and his litter mate Phrac, is also now on a low dosage of your product.
So, why did the sarcoma come and go? I suspect I have the answer to that question, I just can't prove it
Dr. R.M. Clemmons' paper, Integrative Treatment of Cancer in Dogs, got me interested in doing a lot more research on canine cancers. What I found is the Western medicine approach is far short of what therapy is available in the treatment of dogs with cancer and extremely intrusive. Potential customers for your product will find oncologists are like republicans and democrats - they don't agree on anything. So, what are they to do? They can spend inordinate amounts of money on Western therapies, with no guarantees, or try your product. They need to consider what they have to lose, if they don'tYou can send this or any part of this email to potential customers, I don't want anything from you in return. I am simply very happy you developed the K-9 product, and now have more than anything I could have asked for
I met you at the Cobo show and purchased the 10 bags of food. Just wanted you to know that my fussy girl loves your mix and I have been telling a ton of people about it.
I'm looking forward to trying the mix on my next batch of puppies.
We spoke the week of June 16 when I ordered the K-9 Pack and you sent a sample of your dogfood mix.
Timbuktu ("Timmy") has been on the supplements going on 3 weeks. Although I do not yet see the results others have written about, I am still hopeful. He is still eating and drinking and is responsive. Both the dogs LOVE the food (we weren't able to try it until we returned from our vacation). Am hoping to do a complete switch, but both dogs have had problems throughout the years with food, so need to check with our vet--he's into holistic treatment so I don't think it will be a problem.
I appreciate your talking with me and am glad to know through the testimonials you are always willing to lend a helping hand.
I met you at the dog show and you provided me with a sample of your Pet Mix for review on my dog blog, The Ruff Ruff Review. I am emailing to let you know that the post is online now here. Please let me know what you think and also if you would be interested in providing a free bag to one contest winner from my blog. I'd love to give you another post and give one of my readers a chance to try your great food. (My dogs LOVED it.)
Have a great night and thanks so much for the sample!
We got Bixby from a rescue group. He is a Border Collie mix, about 6 years old. Extremely smart, full of life. Loves to eat. In October, 2006, he started rubbing the right side of his face everywhere - the coach, floor, walls, etc. Then we noticed redness and drainage from his right eye. His regular vet said it could be allergies and treated his symtoms as that - antihistamines, eyedrops and prednisone. No improvement from the medications. I took him to another vet because I started to notice an odor from the drainage and he started scratching the right side of his face and his right eye, so we had to place a E Collar to prevent him from reaching his eye.
The bad news was this vet noticed his face being assymetrical. Muscles were starting to atrophy. His right eye started to roll because of the lack of muscle control. They kept him for more tests. He had no sensation in his left nostril so the combination of all his symptoms arrived at a diagnosis of brain tumor. To relieve some of the symptoms, he was prescribed antibiotics, prednisone, eyedrops, neurontin. We were told to return after two weeks. On the next visit, the vet said she did not think she could do anything more for Bixby. She said to keep him comfortable. If we wanted to pursue more tests and treatments, they would cost thousands of dollars and a lot of discomfort for Bixby.
I left the office that day extremely depressed. I could not imagine Bixby being sick.
He is always happy and keeps us happy. I decided to go on the internet to do some research. I arrived at your website and read all the wonderful stories from pets recovering from cancer. Therefore, I ordered the K9 Power Pack. It did not take long for his symptoms to diminish. I continued ordering and giving him the products. The right side of his face started to fill in after approximately three months. It was after Christmas when we saw more progress. I believe his condition has stabilized. His appetite is good. No change in his physical functions. He has not deteriorated since we started the K9 products. We are now 9 months using K9. I give him 8 capsules a day, 4 in the morning and 4 at night. Thank you for great life-saving and life-prolonging products! I have stopped crying for Bixby. He is going to be with us for a long time. I am really convinced that K9 has kept him alive. I will keep you posted. I will share this story to as many folks as I can.
As I received my regular order from Birkdale today, I thought about how fortunate I am to have found your company and I just wanted to say thanks. Two years ago, my darling rottweiler, Dakota, was diagnosed with bone cancer and had one of her back legs amputated. After one year and many rounds of chemo, I was told that the cancer had spread to her lungs and that she had 3 months at most to live - that was 1 year ago.
I thank God that I found your company. Today, Dakota is a very healthy and happy dog and our vet has no explanation he can offer. But I don't need an explanation - I know why, Birkdale. Thank you so much for giving us another year with our dog - you will never know how much it means to us.
When I contacted birkdale a month ago my vet told me my dog had only 3 months to live maybe 4 months at best. He could not stand at all , I had to put a harness on him so I could lift him up enough to take him out . As he is a rottweiler this was not an easy task , he was miserable and looked sick.
After just two weeks on k9 he was able to get up by himself and walk outside, he is walking with a limp but this product has given me real hope where there was none.The difference in my dog both in the way he looks and his obvious happy demeanor has me believing in miracles, whatever the outcome I know I am giving my dog a real chance with this amazing product. I also want to point out that this company have the best deals , and treat their worried customers with kindness and understanding, which was not the case with the people I called before birkdale, I was very surprised to find how many people do not know that this product exists.but I will keep spreading the word , thank you so much.
After 14 Days on Birkdale
Benny, before taking Birkdale - Benny gaining weight and happier after 14 days on Birkdale
ps Tom, thank you so much for your help.
I spoke with you almost 2 months ago regarding my 9 year old dog, Maya.
I really appreciate the time you spent with me on the phone educating and providing thoughtful recommendations. As a reminder, her primary symptom was one sided nose bleeds, an indication of nasal cancer.The general vet and specialist both noted that it is an aggressive cancer with a 4 month prognosis. Difficult to diagnose and pin point, medical treatment would be costly and invasive with no guarantees. Also, the expectation was that treatment would only extend her chance of survival by a year since radiation is not considered a cure for cancer.
Not satisfied, I started to research the web to find alternatives. I found your website, saw the testimonials, and decided to try the Cancer Power Pack. At this point, I had nothing to lose and a lot to gain. When we spoke, you also recommended that I put her on the Pet Mix and feed her more protein (which I have used for over a month now). The first 3 weeks were tough as Maya still had frequent nosebleeds (about once or twice a week). However, her energy level was off the charts, which I considered a good sign. Her second month has been incredible.
She has not had a nosebleed for 3 weeks running now. Her energy and quality of life remains high, and as a side benefit, she is slowly losing weight on the Pet Mix (she is overweight and been trying to lose weight for years). I have no problem getting her to take the pills mixed with the Pet Mix, which I alternate making with various meats (she loves it). I'm continuing to keep her on the full dosage and will reach out to you in another month or so to give you another status. I remain optimistic that she will continue to make good progress. Please feel free to use my testimonial for your website. I hope that it will help others in a similar circumstance. Attached is a photo of Maya. She loves the water and will hopefully be swimming with us all summer long!
I wanted to drop you a note to let you know we had to have Sasha put to sleep. She developed a condition called Degenerative Myelopathy which is much like MS in humans. What is amazing is it was almost one year to the day after she was diagnosed with cancer. You and your wonderful products were such a blessing to us and without question were a huge part in Sasha living so long after getting cancer. The K9 Supplements, Transfer Factor, and Pet Mix were nothing short of miraculous in her treatment. When she was diagnosed with the cancer, the doctors gave her 90 day s to live.
One year later and after being on your products she was still the vibrant and active German Shepherd we all loved to have in our family.
This DM came out of nowhere and was just awful. In a matter of one week her quality of life ceased to exist. She was 12 1/2 when she was put to sleep and had lived a good long life for a GSD. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the K9 Supplements and your other great products are what gave us one more year with her. A few months ago we took her to the vet for a cancer checkup. They ran their blood tests and X-Rays and couldn't find any signs of the cancer that was there before we started using your stuff. You have always been wonderful to deal with on the phone and in email and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for what you do to help others daily.Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime.
Nice seeing you at the dog show. Lucy is still alive and well. It has been 4 years since she was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Thanks for the bag of Pet Mix. I can't believe how quick and easy it was to make. Lucy loves it!
I've been using K-9 Supplements and Transfer Factor for my dogs for a few years (or longer) and I'm definitely a believer as well. Also although no proof, I really believe when I cut Rexie's and Cassie's doses back to maintenance (instead of keeping them on the full dose) is when Rexie's hemangeosarcoma returned and Cassie's started.
Cassie's holistic vet recommended mushroom therapy for an inoperable tumor deep in her shoulder. She was on them for a couple of years and the tumor shrunk down some (more importantly - it stopped growing). At the same time she had a spindle cell carcinoma on her tail - the whole tail had to be removed, so it was a good follow-up therapy for that. The hemangoesarcoma was a later surprise.
I've found the vets (other than holistic) and vet specialists (like oncologists) will tell you your wasting your money and call it all unsubstantiated hype. But don't believe them because they don't have any experience with it and won't open their minds to the possibility that something other than what they've been taught can help (or work).
Further my husband uses their people version to stay healthy. When he doesn't use it he spends most of the fall and winter fighting colds/flu/viruses - when he takes it daily during those months, he doesn't get sick at all.Sandy
I just had to send you these 2 pictures of my dog Calypso.
She was recently diagnosed with systemic Lymphoma due to a very fast growing mast cell tumor. She went down hill very fast and starting to refuse food and became very sick. I decided to try K9 supplements along with prednisone and forced her to start eating good quality raw foods (chicken, ground turkey, yams, some oatmeal).Although she is 13 1/2 and her prognoses is not very good, I have seen a huge change in her personality in the very short time on the K9. (less than 2 weeks).
Even more astounding is that her huge, hot, heavy Mast Cell tumor has decreased in size dramatically. It was oozing and bleeding and now is almost non existant. See the attached pics. I will continue to do everything for her and I, and Calpso want to thank everyone at Birkdale for this wonderful product.
Just wanted you to know that Shadow seems to be doing fine. Thanks for asking. The last time he was at the vet they couldn't believe how good he looked. This is the dog they suggested be put down in April (its now October 14). He runs and plays like a pup. He gets tired faster but we all do when we get old and he is 10 now. I never thought he would make it.
Dear Tom,Thanks so much.
The product is working wonderfully. Our dog is in remission after only 2 chemo treatments. Her lab work is perfect and normal. Our vet is amazed at how well she is doing. I told him I would make a believer out of him yet!
Just wanted to thank you for your wonderful product, my baby Bedelia passed away the morning of 28 Nov, 07, she was diagnosed with Melanoma cancer 4 months ago and I was told by the vet that there was really nothing I could do, I believe your product helped her, she never lost her appetite and she was running around chasing the cats in the back yard the night before she passed away, thank you so much. Just wanted to send you a picture of Bedelia this was taken 1 week before she passed away, she was very happy but as you can see in the picture she had the cancer lumps under her ear and one big lump on her shoulder but this never affected her she was always so happy

I highly recommend this product.
Treating your dog with prescription medicines like rimaydal is likely to cure your dog's arthritis by killing your dog.
The side effects of rimaydal are often life threatening.
K9 Mobility has the best all natural ingredients and worked well for my old dog's painful condition.
As you know my dog Lucy was diagnosed with cancer in 2004. She is a 11 year old Black Lab. The diagnosis from the vet was not very good, couple months at best, so after a couple weeks I decided to get a new puppy so Lucy could help train her before she left. Then I discovered your dog cancer kits.
When I told my Vet about the pills, he looked at the bottles, and simply said well, it doesn't seem they could hurt as they are all natural, and good luck!
So I immediately started her on the regimen of pills and changed her diet. I am so happy I still have my Lucy, and the new puppy, Polly, has just turned three years old!
Thanks so much

I just wanted to thank everyone at Birkdale Medicinals for such a great product. On October 30th, 200 our wonderful Lab mix, Brandie, was diagnosed with advanced bone cancer that had spread to her lungs. She was only 7 and my family was devastated. Our veterinarian prescribed some pain meds and told us she only had about month or so left to live. I found your site and decided to give your products a try.I had nothing to loose. At the time Brandie started on your supplements she was listless and non weight-baring.
But within just a week of starting her on K-9 and Transfer Factor we started to notice a profound change.her appetite was back and she was playing like a puppy again! Her quality of life improved so drastically that even our vet was stunned. Because of your phenomenal products we were able to spend another 13 months with our beloved friend. Words can not express how thankful we are for that additional time. I truly believe that if we had caught the cancer earlier, and started K-9 sooner, we would've had even more time together. We said goodbye to Brandie on December 8th, 2006. As difficult as it was to let her go, we are forever grateful to you and your products for helping our family friend. And I will gladly refer all our "Dog Friends" to your website as I sing your praises. :-)Many blessings for a Happy Holiday and prosperous New Year.
The K Family
