Uisce at Sam Smith Park
Eight-year-old Uisce visits with us once a year when his family goes to Ireland.
This year was a little different. He has switched, with his mom's permission, to a raw diet! I was astonished at the positive results!
These are the facts - when Uisce visited this time, he had great difficulty going upstairs the night before his scheduled morning pain meds. Uisce has arthritis now and, every two days in the morning, he has his pain medication. His family takes him for daily city walks (sidewalk) for ninety minutes.
Upon visiting us, he started eating a raw diet (which is described briefly in the prior post) and his hikes were all on country trails.
Within four days, he no longer cried the evening before his pain meds and he was demanding to share our second daily hike (and our evening hike as well). I tried to hold him back from running!
Uisce is back home now and his family is eagerly awaiting instructions on the raw diet. I do believe he may be back on his city walks. I will share all I have learned about the raw diet with with his mom.
