Alexis, the nutritionist at Puptection is the absolute best!
My little Jack Russell was recently diagnosed with renal failure and Alexis helped me and my dog Jack through this frightening ordeal.
She recommended a raw food diet which includes: rabbit meat, freeze dried vegetables and purifying clay ( he also takes milk thistle and steamed sweet potatoes).
Within days I could see that he was feeling better and eating all of his "new healthy food" with lots of gusto.

Within days I could see that he was feeling better and eating all of his "new healthy food" with lots of gusto. A month later I took him back to see his vet and he could not believe how good he looked. Jack's creatinine level initially was 3.4 and after all these healthy changes in his diet it had gone down to 2.4! The normal level is 1.6.
My vet said keep doing what you are doing.... it's working!!
I consider the people at Puptection Guardian Angels. Thank you.

This place literally saved my cat's life. Pillow started losing weight and not sleeping. She was waking me up every two hours throughout the night crying. I would feed her wet food with vitamins but nothing was soothing her. I took her the the vet and they put her on antibiotics and pain killers for a kidney condition that they could not quite figure out. Still no improvement. I was at my wits end and completely sleep deprived, while my poor kitty was wasting away before my eyes.

I told them her symptoms and what the vet had told me and they recommended a raw food diet, purifying clay, and specially blended rosemary oil with vitamins and omegas. After the first feeding of the new diet she slept 4 hours. The next night 5, and then started to sleep through the night again and was eating all the food I gave her. She is well on the road to recovery now. She is acting like herself and is gaining weight again. I looooovvvveeee Puptection!!!! They SAVED my cat and my sanity. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!

I found the place through a friend whose dogs overcame skin and stomach problems after switching to Puptection's raw diet. I picked up some beef mix, and some dehydrated veggies/fruit. In a very short time, my little guy has more energy, his ear infection is gone, his coat is amazing, and he actually poops less, because there's no kibble waste to expel.
I couldn't be happier. They take time to make you feel welcome when you come in to the store. They walk you through the contents of the food, the benefits, feeding instructions, everything. They're also more than willing to take your phone calls and help you out with whatever questions you might have.
A-plus. Love this place.

We started the veggie mix with our dog 2 weeks ago. We were skeptical but have really notice our dog Chilipepper has a lot more energy and really likes the taste. They also recommended some herbs for Chillipeppers hip problems. He normally hopped when running but we have noticed he is starting to take normal strides. The staff is very friendly and gives good insight on dog diet.
big fans!

Stopped into this store a month ago out of desperation...needing to find a new food for my Dane. He has inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and became intolerant to his most recent food. (He's probably been through at least 20 super hi quality foods over the last 6 years...all of which he has become intolerant to).

This store has a decent supply of very hi quality foods and very competitive prices-but also offers nutrition/consulting advice and REALLY DO know what they are talking about.

This store has a decent supply of very hi quality foods and very competitive prices-but also offers nutrition/consulting advice and REALLY DO know what they are talking about. My dog has been eating raw/ very limited ingredients for a few years and doing great-until a few months ago. When Alex suggested a clay product and a raw food with veggies-I resisted...because I was certain that my dog was unable to tolerate veggies and he certainly didn't need another additive.

Well-out of desperation, i gave it a try (although have cut way back on the added veggies...at least for now). His diarrhea, which had been off and on for 4-6 months was gone within 3 days and he is doing great on the food.
good people/good prices and good advice makes for a great store.

If you love your animal, you must come here to Puptection. You will be amazed at how much you can learn from Alexis and Alex. They are both professional, caring, and patient while you ask your questions. After my loving kitty got diagnosed with a mast cell tumor I came here to see if they had any recommendations. They spent nearly an hour with me going over what types of foods that I can feed Shoopy so that she could boost her immune system and kick those cancer cells to the curb.

They spent nearly an hour with me going over what types of foods that I can feed Shoopy so that she could boost her immune system and kick those cancer cells to the curb. Everything that they said made sense from switching her to a raw food diet to adding coconut flakes to her meals to rubbing coconut butter on her wound to heal to giving her purifying clay. The vet told me that she'd probably have a scar on her leg and the fur wouldn't grow back, but after Puptection told me to use that coconut cream on her wound, it miraculously healed and the hair grew back! Within a few weeks of the raw diet her coat became silky smooth and she had a lot of energy. She is not totally down with the coconut flakes or the clay but I think that this is the best holistic store to come to try out different types of natural food to care for your pet. Alex and Alexis told me of stories about dogs and cats that were really sick and after switching to a simple holistic diet they became much better. I believe that everyone should come here if not to just learn about what holistic options there are (stay away from big chain stores like Petco and petsmart if you can avoid it!).

My dog loves Puptection.
I originally went there because my dog was itching badly. I think he had some allergies and dry skin. At Puptection they listened to my and truly cared about my dog. They gave me some oil to put in his food to help his dry skin/coat. In addition they mix their own nutritional dog foods. They gave me mix that they design to help his coat. First of all my dog loves their dog food - he immediately noticed a change and loves it.

In addition the service there is terrific. I will keep going back

This is a place we were looking for ever since we rescued our two pit bulls. We have them on a raw diet since we adopted them but needed more information on what exactly we should and could feed them besides the raw meat. When I bought the Groupon I did not think I would learn so much about nutrition for our doggies. Our female has a lot of allergies and she had red spots all over her body before coming to visit Puptection,

We have them on a raw diet since we adopted them but needed more information on what exactly we should and could feed them besides the raw meat. When I bought the Groupon I did not think I would learn so much about nutrition for our doggies. Our female has a lot of allergies and she had red spots all over her body before coming to visit Puptection, after about 3 weeks of following their instructions the red spots are gone and the doggies smell better than ever. I will refer any one that has concerns about what they feed their pets to go see Alex. We should all educate our selves better and not make decisions on what company has the cutest commercials on TV, most of those name brand pet foods have fillers which most dogs are allergic to. We used to ask our vet about where to go to get more informed and they never new where to send us, now we found the place and hope that more people become aware of what they are feeding their pets. THANK YOU Puptection we will keep in touch, even from Texas when move.

I am recommending Puptection for a consult if your dog has any kind of digestive issues. Alex and Alexis were very helpful and gave me solutions for my dog. I have a yorkie terrier that was diagnosed with IBD. My dog had lots of diarrhea and vomiting and her stomach was very sensitive. She was on some prescribed medications by the specialty vet and we were told to keep her on a strict salmon and potato diet, nothing outside of this because of the severity of her stomach issues and digestive system.

She was on some prescribed medications by the specialty vet and we were told to keep her on a strict salmon and potato diet, nothing outside of this because of the severity of her stomach issues and digestive system. After visiting Puptection and thoroughly going over our dogs health problems, Alex and Alexis developed a special diet for my dog and recommended a veggie friendly raw food diet for our dog along with a bentonite clay to detox (use of the clay only for two weeks), Coconut whipped cream along with some other products from their store. We were able to take our dog off of all the prescribed medications and we noticed a big change within the first few days. Our dog has been on this program for approximately 3 months now and is doing fabulous and her coat looks awesome. I am so happy with the results and my dog is very happy. I am so thankful that I stopped in to obtain information and talk to Alex and Alexis.

Puptection folks recommended "Purifiant Argile Purifying Montmorillonite Clay" (which has a long list of benefits, including improved absorption of nutrients) and their Raw beef formula. In less than a week there is a noticeable improvement in my cat's weight/eating habits and her mood seems better.

Thank you SO much - very grateful to have you in my neighborhood!

This testimonial is extremely overdue, but I'm happy to submit today. Puptection helped give back the gift of life to our Carmel. Back in October 2014, we bought a golden retriever-Carmel. From the start, the breeder told us she was the smallest she had ever seen. She was a normal playful, lovable, and a complete blessing. We were having a hard time potty training her, but brushed that off to just her being a stubborn puppy. One week when she was about 8 months old Carmel started to become less like her puppy self,

This testimonial is extremely overdue, but I'm happy to submit today. Puptection helped give back the gift of life to our Carmel. Back in October 2014, we bought a golden retriever-Carmel. From the start, the breeder told us she was the smallest she had ever seen. She was a normal playful, lovable, and a complete blessing. We were having a hard time potty training her, but brushed that off to just her being a stubborn puppy. One week when she was about 8 months old Carmel started to become less like her puppy self, she didn't talk (bark) as much and seemed to have less energy than normal. On a Friday night, into early Saturday morning that's when everything took an unexpected turn - Carmel's gums were hot and she was just restless. Throughout the night, we kept watching her and she started to drool. When we realized she couldn't stand without swaying, we raced her to the ER where they told us at first it was something toxic that got into her system. They administered fluids and other meds to help with what they thought was going on and came out and told us that her condition was getting better and that whatever was causing this was going away. The vet told us that we could go home and that they would look after her. We drove home thinking everything was going to be O.K. and that she was in good hands (so we thought). No more than a half hour later we got a call from the new shift vet stating that Carmel was banging her head, walking in circles, and was blind. We raced to the E.R. and they stated that it could be meningitis, but they didn't have a neurologist on site to diagnosis her.

We ended up taking Carmel to another ER in Chicago that had a neurologist on staff that could perform a spinal tap that would tell us if she had meningitis or not. The vet sedated her and proceeded with the tests which included taking more blood samples, it was during the blood samples that one of the doctors found that Carmel's liver enzymes were over 500 when the normal range is 10-120. We had a spinal tap done to rule out meningitis and the vet advised us to have an ultrasound performed on her liver with her regular vet to find out if there were any shunts. Carmel's regular vet Dr. Makofski (Beach Park Animal Hospital) wanted us to get a second opinion as she couldnt see a definite shunt.

We took her to the Vet. Specialty Center in Buffalo Grove- the ultrasound concluded no external shunts so the next step was an MRI. If the MRI concluded it was internal shunts, surgery can correct it, but it's an extremely risky. On the day of the MRI, the vet in Buffalo Grove called while Carmel was under anesthesia and determined that she does have liver shunts, but they can't be surgically fixed. The doctor told us that we should keep giving her a protein free diet, continue her lactulose (which helps break the protein down for the liver), and that we would maybe have a year until she passed. We even asked what about a special diet? Their response was "it's a lot of work and you won't get results as expected". We couldn't believe what we heard and were in denial. We instantly started our Internet search of dog nutritionists and that's when we were called to Puptection. Alex answered the phone and spent over an hour with us, listening to us, encouraging us. Our faith was shattered from the vet in Buffalo Grove, but Alex was determined to build it back up. He suggested the V-Flow diet to detox from all the anesthesia she was given and all meds. He also suggested to get her on the Original Dehydrated Formula (which contains no meat) and stated we need to feed Carmel the real protein as the low-protein diets are nothing but the bad meats that can make our beloved pets feel worse. He stated to use real chicken in diet.

We were so scared- here the vets in Buffalo Grove were telling us LOW-PROTEIN, but Alex was saying feed her the real deal?! We immediately called her regular vet and gave her the news, she encouraged us to try it and agreed with Alex. After 2 weeks of feeding Carmel her new diet-Original Dehydrated Formula & V-Flow with small amounts of cooked chicken, the vet took her blood and her levels dropped to the normal range of 75! The doctor was even in disbelief that she ran it twice! We called Puptection back right away and shared the good news! We haven't looked back since. On our last trip about 1 month ago, still being on the specialized Puptection diet, Carmel's levels are still within normal range! Today Carmel is still alive and loving her puppy life, doing puppy things and all of this is because of Puptection and her vet's encouragement to follow the holistic diet from the start. I don't even want to think of where we would be if we listened to the Buffalo Grove vets and never found Puptection. For any disbelievers given grim news of their beloved pet call Puptection for a second opinion and see if they have anything to rebuild your pet's health and strength-they truly saved our Carmel!

I have been getting food for my dog, Roo, from Puptection for several years. When I brought him in, his skin was bad, his allergies were out of control, and we could not find a way to get him through that situation. We got him into Puptection and they gave us several options and a strategy to use with his care. In only a matter of weeks, Roo's skin got better and he lost around 8 pounds of bloat that we didn't know he had been carrying.

I decided to check out Puptection because my dog had bumps all over his body. The vet had him on antibiotics and told me they might be mast cell tumors. After talking to the people at Puptection I decided to change his diet and started using the original blend. Now its been two months and my dog is healthy and happier. No more bumps and after his last visit to the vet he checked out fine no need for testing or anything.

This place is a gem and a life saver..the people who work there know there stuff and genuinely care about your situation with your dog or cat. My dog bingo has been on the food for several days plus supplements. I have already seen some big improvements... But I would highly recommend this place. I will keep u posted as things turn around for my Bingo. I believe in there products.

Our yorkshire terrier, Foxy, was very sick with liver problems. Her enzyme levels were extremely high according to the vet, and he wanted to have her hospitalized for $300 a day. I also spent a lot of money on medications, however I felt it was too much medicine to give to our little pooch.

She was very ill, did not want to eat, lost a lot of weight and hair, was very lethargic, could not go down stairs without falling,

She was very ill, did not want to eat, lost a lot of weight and hair, was very lethargic, could not go down stairs without falling, was walking into corners of the room confused and was not able to back out of them, she would get lost under furniture and bump her head all over the place! We had no idea what else we could do because we couldn't afford the vet costs.

We researched alternatives and found that a diet change might help. Unfortunately Vets are not properly trained in their studies regarding diets, therefore the only advice he had was to search for recipes online. Instead we found Puptection, and were amazed at the results! There were so many stories Puptection told us about that gave us hope. And just like they promised, our dog really liked their food and within a day of eating it, she had the energy to get out of bed. By the end of the week, she was on a new diet and more energy. As a couple weeks went by, she had gained back weight and was looking like our old dog again! She began climbing stairs, running, and barking again!

Puptection has a very Holistic approach to the way they do things, and it absolutely works. Their natural ingredients are sometimes all a canine needs. They have helped dogs with all kinds of problems, from failing livers to tumors and cancer. I wish we would have used them sooner. I've referred a lot of friends to Puptection, and they also love it. Plus the customer service their was a amazing. Every time I go there I find myself chatting for over 20 minutes. They are extremely knowledgeable, and gave us great advice. Give them a try, it's really worth it.

As a pet owner with a sick puppy with food allergies this past year has been tough finding the right food and many,many vet visits. After completing much research and talking in detail with the store manager, Alex I believe I have found the solution! From a cost perspective it is comparable to the fancy dog food I had been buying with no success. Staff is very helpful and do spend the time to consult on each concern I had prior to starting the new diet .

We originally went into Puptection with our dog to check it out and get him a treat. After talking to Alex and Alexis about the problems we were having with our dog and diabetic cat we decided to switch them from the food we were getting from the vet and try a raw, holistic diet to see if it would help alleviate some of their problems. Our dog absolutely loves the new diet and gets so excited every time we are preparing his meals.

Our dog absolutely loves the new diet and gets so excited every time we are preparing his meals. It also has taken care of his health problems and he is a much happier dog! Our cat is a bit more finicky, but we are working on getting her to change her diet completely as well. I highly recommend considering switching your dog or cats diet to a raw holistic diet whether they have health issues or not, as it is just a better quality food that is more in tune with their natural instincts. Alex and Alexis are very knowledgeable and friendly and will help you find the perfect food. In addition, the cost difference between the food I was getting from the vet and the new holistic food is roughly the same so it is not an overly expensive option and your dog or cat will love you for making the switch!

PUPtection was a life saver!!! My black lab (Mimi) was diagnosed with a tumor on her hip about 3 months ago. My vet put her on lots of different medications and she had to get annual injections to try and shrink the tumor. Nothing worked! Mimi was as sluggish and weak as ever! She started to hobble up and down the stairs and was barely eating anything. After trying everything my vet had recommended with no progress I decided that I wasn't going to lose her that easy!

She started to hobble up and down the stairs and was barely eating anything. After trying everything my vet had recommended with no progress I decided that I wasn't going to lose her that easy! I then started looking for more natural and alternative ways of treatment. This is where PUPtection came in. I found them online and read about how the specialize in holistic, organic, and all natural treatments for pets all different types of conditions. I went there immediately! I was able to sit down with one of their holistic consultants right away and figure out the root of the problem.

Turns out the food I had been feeding her for years had a certain preservative in it that had been clogging her liver. Therefore making her body more acidic (creating an environment for cancer to grow) and greatly decreasing her immune system. They recommended their signature dehydrated raw diet (which was quit convenient) and also gave me a number of herbal supplements to rapidly boost her failing immune system. One of the main products that they put her on was a purifying clay to literally attract the tumor and flush it out of her system. With in a couple of weeks she was walking around again! She seemed to have more energy; she was able to eat her food and started gaining weight! When I took her back to the vet she said that her overall health had greatly improved and asked me what I had been doing differently. We are still on the program and Mimi is getting better everyday. We go in to the clinic weekly for check ups and refills on her food and herbs.

If your pet has any kind of health problems I would highly recommend them!
