A MUST-READ FOR ALL DOG PARENTS…
I’d like to introduce you to my adorable little trouble maker, Koa.
Koa is a 1.5 year old Goldendoodle who is training to be a therapy dog.
We’ve been through the ringer with her digestive issues! 😭
First, there’s the Diarrhea. Sometimes she makes it outside. But sometimes she goes right here by the door! 😂
Then there’s the Vomiting. You know, the smelly, yellow nasty kind of barf that requires a full bath to remove the smell from her face. Her favorite place to go is right here on the landing of our carpeted stairs. 😂
And our favorite, though less visible issue: silent but deadly farts. That sweet face might look innocent, but it isn’t and she knows it!
What’s extra frustrating is that we’ve tried EVERY kind of food imaginable. Dried food, wet food, freeze dried, even home-made. All the expensive kinds! She might enjoy it for a day or two, but then she gives me this adorable “NOPE face”
I know a lot of you can relate. I’ve talked to dozens of dog owner friends that deal with the same issues Koa does:

Can I share with you a very personal story? This one is hard to write without tearing up, but I’ll do my best.
This is Splash.
Splash was the inspiration behind iHeartDogs. 16 years ago, my wife and I rescued her. It turns out, she rescued us too! Through her inspiration, iHeartDogs has been able to donate over 30 million meals for homeless dogs.
Splash lived an incredibly long and healthy life. Just 3 weeks ago, she passed away just a few months shy of 18 years old.
Splash was incredibly active and healthy up until her very last week of life, where she declined quickly. In those final days, where she was struggling to both eat and drink, I sat with her on my lap, cradling her and comforting her.
There was only 1 way I was able to get her to eat anything. I took her favorite food, and soaked it in our iHeartDogs Goat’s Milk Super-Probiotic.
She immediately would perk up and eat the food directly out of my hand. It was the only way she took food in the final days, and I cherish those special final moments I spent with her.
In honor of Splash, and to continue her legacy of helping homeless dogs, we’re pledging to donate 7 meals to shelter dogs for each purchase of the iHeartDogs Goat’s Milk Super-Probiotic.
