Below are some reviews from Ask Ariel customers:
"Presley is our sweet rescue kitty who had a rough time prior to arriving at our door. He has stomatitis and had very inflamed gums. Before finding Ask Ariel we sadly had most of his teeth pulled at the recommendation from our vet. I knew there had to be something to help him and I wanted to salvage his remaining canines. We found that shortly after having his teeth pulled his gums were still very inflamed and he would chew on my fingers and eat too much dry food to soothe his gums. We went on the Silver and NOT & QUENT Drops for him. At his last checkup, the vet commented that his gums looked healthy and not inflamed! We are still needing to keep up the regimen and the transition to getting him to eat a better diet and probiotics has been challenging, however we keep at it and he is doing well. The extra dry food has left him a bit chunky so still a work in progress. Thank you so much!!!" - Deborah, Oregon 2023
"Our 13 yo Shih tzu came back from the groomer about 9 months ago coughing uncontrollably and we found out he had a Collapsed Trachea confirmed by his vet that evening. The coughing, honking, etc., was unbearable but our love for him and his quality of life had us searching for better options. The vet said it was incurable but something that could be managed with steroids and pain meds. He still coughed around the clock. I found Ask Ariel and started with Ultra-Flex Collagen and he coughed significantly less. Also gave him benadryl tabs occasionally. The next time I ordered, I added LypoZyme. After 3 weeks of both he is not coughing at all. It's a miracle and everyday my husband and I are thankful that we found Ask Ariel. No more steroids or pain meds either! He is running up and down the stairs now without coughing and we just watch him in awe. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, a million times over (Jerry thanks you too)!
"This is Timothy and Tony in Mom’s favorite chair. They were fosters from our local animal shelter who ended up staying. I just received my second order of Power Probiotic and still have the Soothing Digestive Relief. I should have updated my note on the order to let you know how well Timothy has done on the supplements! Within two weeks or so his GI system totally improved. He now has normal colored stool and no more diarrhea. He has put back on the weight he has lost and eats well. I put both the probiotic powder and the digestive relief in his wet food, which he laps up eagerly. As a matter of fact, his brother Tony noticed that Tim’s food was a different than his and he kept trying to eat Tim’s wet food. So, I put a little of the Soothing Digestive Relief on Tony’s food and he seems satisfied. Tony does not have any GI issues, he just hates to be left out of anything.
"Thank goodness for Gastro ULC and Soothing Digestive Relief. I’m not sure if my little Mya (brown Chi) would still be around had my friend not given me your website. So many ER visits, sick nights, and debilitating pain before she started with the medicine. Life changer for us!" - Amy, Montana 2023
"This is our Mocha! Although she is dressed in her witch's costume for Halloween, she is the complete opposite....a 24 hour a day angel!!
"My boy, Wrigley, takes the Immune Harmony for his autoimmune disease and it has helped him tremendously! It helps balance his immune system and keep it under control. Thank you for a great product!" - Jennifer, Utah 2023
"Here is Grace Kelly clowning around in preparation for her first Halloween with me. I adopted her in January 2023. She is pure love and joy! Upon learning Grace has luxating patellas, I started her on Ask Ariel’s Ultra-Flex Collagen. This supplement, combined with a healthy diet, keeps Grace moving and living her best life! ❤️" - Kelly, California 2023
"This is Millie the Bernedoodle. Millie reluctantly ate food in the morning and tended to vomit (TMI but true). We tried every type of food out there and visited several veterinarians. She was losing weight, and not acting like herself. Millie has been taking a combination of the Power Probiotic, Gastro ULC, and the K9 Digestive Enzymes for several months. She hasn’t had any episodes as before, she’s gained needed weight because she now eats her breakfast, and has more energy. Thank you!" - Jami, Arkansas 2023
"I can't get over how well Pip does on Ultra-Flex Collagen. According to the vet, he blew out the canine version of the ACL on his right rear leg almost two years ago when he was running around the back yard and slipped on some ice. Surgery was going to be really expensive -- without a "guaranteed" correction! Since I am a Naturopathic Doctor, surgery and meds are never my go-to's. Within just a few days of starting him on Ultra-Flex, he was putting weight on the leg. Within a few weeks, he was no longer pulling the leg up to rest it. Best of all, within about a month, he was running around the yard again!!
"Sharing this because perhaps it could help another dog. A few years ago Gracie's blood work came back showing that she had an elevated liver enzyme above 190. Normal range is 12-118. The doctor prescribed me the normal horse size pill for liver support that many dogs take and she said she would need to take it for the rest of her life, it wouldn't lower it, but it MIGHT help it from rising. I tried the medicine for 3 months when my intuition was telling me it wasn't the right thing to do. WE ran another panel of bloodwork and it had gone up a few points. I threw the medicine out.
"I adopted Jack from the neighborhood Animal Shelter. I was sold by his sweet demeanor amid the busy and loud barking Kennels. Once we got home, I realized he had a terrible kennel cough, or so I thought. At his first Vet visit it turned out that he didn’t have a kennel cough, but he has a collapsed trachea. The Vet explained that there is no cure except for possibly surgery and sent us home with 3 or 4 different medications. I was hopeful the medicine would help this poor little guy’s suffering. However, after 3 weeks Jack's coughing seemed to get worse and worse.
"MC squared is a 15-year-old Parsons Jack Russell born on 8/24/2008. She is 10.6 pounds and has had a history of pancreatitis, but she has done extremely well since adding your products. We feed her 3 smaller meals per day and use Power Probiotic, LypoZyme, Soothing Digestive Relief and K9 Digestive Enzymes. She also gets Liver Support with breakfast. The Happy Paws drops have made a significant improvement in her mobility." - Mike, Georgia 2023
"I have been giving my 9yr old Shih tzu/Lhasa Apso mix ArthroSoothe for quite some time. The first time was for a cruciate ligament tear. The vets recommended surgery and I just wasn't able to afford it at that time. I ordered ArthroSoothe and Casper was back jumping and running in a few weeks. We continue to take it daily! I can also vouch for the liver enzymes supplement. They got Casper's levels back in line in no time. For anyone desiring to keep their dog healthy or to get them back on their "good foot", I strongly recommend ArthroSoothe. We recently added Ultra-Flex Collagen to the line-up and it's another amazing addition!!" - Cristy, North Carolina 2023
Ellie, Flower, Lilly & Raven
"Ask Ariel products are a staple in our house of 4 rescues. All of our girls take Power Probiotic as part and parcel of what they eat on a daily basis - I can't imagine them not taking it. Their coats are shiny, their eyes are bright, their stools are well formed and they are all at healthy weights.
"Scruffy is 13 and suffering from Grumpy Dog Syndrome (yes, it's a real thing). I started her on Happy Paws and it definitely reduced the symptoms to almost nonexistent. Her "sister" is happier too because she took the brunt of Scruffy's agitation, growling, and snapping. Lucky for Amber, Scruffy has no teeth, but I was concerned that Amber would have enough and retaliate and Scruffy could end up hurt. It feels so good to have more peace in the house." - Darleen, California 2023
"Luna started itching and scratching her body and genitals in the beginning of June. I put her on K9 Yeast Defense, Power Probiotic and Olive Leaf all of which she is still taking daily. My good news is that Luna's coat and skin are very healthy and in excellent condition." - Lynn, Florida 2023
"Our little Shorkie, Wuqi began having this honking, choking cough so, of course, we took him to our vet. We were horrified to learn that he had something called 'Collapsed Trachea', to which both breeds of Wuqi's parentage are susceptible. Collapsed Trachea is a condition that only grows worse as dogs get older & it can shorten their lifespan. We happen to be big fans of alternative health treatments & so we started researching this condition which is how we found Ask Ariel. We bought several of the products & within 2 weeks, Wuqi quit having that cough & his energy rebounded. These products definitely work & we are & will be repeat buyers. Wuqi's doing great. He's 12 & everybody he meets is surprised he's that old." - Susan, Washington 2023
Max & Amy
"I've been using these supplements for my 12-year-old kitties, Max and Amy for almost 2 years. They were diagnosed with megacolon and this has kept them from having to have surgery. Thank you, Ask Ariel! Using Power Probiotic, Liver Support and Amazing Omegas, along with feeding a high-moisture novel protein diet has kept Max & Amy happy and healthy." - Kathleen, Texas 2023
"Rocket, my pit bull really does well on this. He's had allergies since he's been a puppy and I will never be without this product again. I don't have to use AllerEaze every day, but when he's beginning a flare up, I start right away so that the paws aren't licked raw and the big bumps that he used to get don't start up. It's awesome stuff. I will never give those shots from the vet. This works perfect." - Terri, Ohio 2023
"Graydon developed a yeast overgrowth after a large allergic reaction to Mayfly bites. I’m not sure what the connection is. His belly, paws and anus became covered with yeast. He was super itchy and uncomfortable. I googled and found Ask Ariel. As a nutritionist, I was already quite knowledgeable about supplements and also quite wary. As soon as I read about all the products Ask Ariel had to offer, I knew I had the right place! I started Graydon on the recommended yeast protocol as well as a raw diet. It all worked. After about a year I eased him back to kibble and slowly came off all supplements except the probiotics. He remains yeast free only flaring up in May when the Mayflies are biting! Thanks so much to your team for such smart and clean products and for caring so much!" - Caroline, New York 2023
"This is my baby girl Peanut, she just turned 9 years old. About 18 months ago (or so), I started to notice she was much less active, she would make weird noises while sleeping and had this horrible honking cough that would last for minutes and she couldn't breathe during it. At 1st the vet thought respiratory infection and gave her antibiotics but they did nothing. She then started having episodes where she wouldn't eat for a couple of days and would throw up bile.
Freddie & Honey
"These two kittens are my latest rescues. Freddie was found on the side of the highway under a Dairy Queen sign and Honey was in the Middle School pick-up area in busy traffic--my daughter saved her. Unfortunately, Honey had the feline herpes virus and gave it to tiny little Freddie. I was heartsick because after three different medications (one of them was the one people take for it), none of them were working. I was pretty much on my own at that point so I prayed and researched and found Ask Ariel. What a blessing!!!
"Our sweet Fred is 17 years old. He is happy, active and enjoys his daily walks. A few months ago, the vet reported that Fred’s liver enzymes were elevated. We started Fred immediately on the Liver Support supplements from Ask Ariel. After just a few months, the vet reported that Fred’s liver enzymes were at nearly normal levels. We are so thankful that your supplements helped so quickly. The vet was very happy with Fred’s improvement as are we. Thank you so much for all you do to help our pets! Fred gives Ask Ariel two paws up!" - Sheryl, California 2023
"My sweet rescue dog Allie has always acted like a puppy. But now that she is getting close to 13 years, I noticed she was having difficulty getting into cars and climbing the stairs. I am very concerned about only giving Allie things that are good for her. I wanted to try something natural and didn’t want to use medication. I tried K9 CurcuMagic and am so happy with the results. Allie has more energy and is able to jump up on my bed again! She is having less problems with the stairs too." - Amy, California 2023
"Lucy is our rescue Beagle. She was found wandering in a park almost nine years ago (she was estimated around 2 years old then). My friend was just starting her rescue at the time and she called to ask if I would 'foster' Lucy in hopes we would find her owner. Well, we did find her owner, me and my husband!
"After researching and looking for a more holistic way to help my cat, Reese, and his tummy issues, I stumbled upon AskAriel. I purchased the IBD Kit for him and I believe this, combined with the food suggestions from AskAriel, has made such a difference for him in just a couple of months. He went from vomiting 3-4 times a week to only a couple of times a month, doesn't seem as bloated, and I no longer hear the rumblings in his tummy. He loves to take the Power Probiotic by itself, like it's a treat! We are happy to have found something that works for him and I'm sure Reese is happier, too!" - Dawn, Pennsylvania 2023
"Gavin is a 7-year-old Scottish Terrier who has been my buddy since a puppy. A couple of months before he turned 3, he became listless, had a high temperature, drinking more water than usual and no appetite to eat. He was hospitalized for 3 days at a Specialty Veterinary Hospital where tests were done to rule out various issues. To help him recover he was on a variety of pills. The specialty doctors still could not figure out what was wrong with him for a couple of months eventually concluding that he was diagnosed as having “Immune-Mediated Polyarthritis (IMPA)”. I wanted him off all the medication and researched for a more homeopathic way to heal. I decided on the website “Ask Ariel”. I have ordered various products eventually using up to 7 products on a regular basis going on 4 years. Gavin is doing very well!" - Lisa, California 2023
"I just wanted to thank you guys for your great service and great products. Our Vet was telling us that we were looking at a very expensive surgery and a full tooth extraction for my cat Pete and that they didn’t know what was causing his stomatitis and it was the only thing they could do to fix it. The antibiotics they gave us weren’t working. Not only did you get me your products immediately, my cat seems to have made a full recovery in 2 weeks. The Vet didn’t tell us Stomatitis was an autoimmune disease, diet related or anything else. You and your website told me that and I believe it was your products (Immune Support Kit, Immune Harmony and Happy Paws Drops) and knowledge of a diet change that made the entire difference. My family can not thank you guys enough! Pete seems to be back to his normal self and we are just so thankful!" - Ryan, Virginia 2023
"We adopted Trixie from the Animal Rescue League and loved her from first sight! She was so tiny! Fit in the palm of my hand & was a little stinker as a kitten. Always in things she shouldn’t be, but always so cute, it was hard to be mad. At her first annual appointment, I had told our vet that I was noticing she had bad breath and was a bit lethargic. After checking her mouth, I was told she had Stomatitis. I have had cats all my life and had never heard of this. After discussing treatment options which included steroid shots to extracting all her teeth, I was overwhelmed. How could this be happening? How did this cutie pie develop an autoimmune disease that could be that life altering? I remember discussing the vet recommendations with my husband with tears running down my face. I told him that I felt helpless & needed to figure out an option.
"Our Toby is a six year old cat who started bleeding from his paws and was diagnosed with Pillow Paw. We were nervous to start the Power Probiotic as it is a little pricey with a no refund policy but we owed it to Toby to at least give it a try. We started with many speculations since Toby is such a sensitive, one of a kind cat. We read the reviews & thought they were too good to be true. Within 4 weeks, Toby’s paws had completely healed & the swelling was gone and it has stayed that way. There were also quite a few unexpected benefits. Toby has always bathed nervously to the point where he had furless patches & he has always been a small cat who weighs next to nothing. After starting him on the Power Probiotic, he has grown all his hair back, bathes more like a normal cat, instead of nervously & has even gained a few pounds. He has also been an avid puker, we’re talking daily, and that has stopped almost completely as well. If you’re like us and think this product is too good to be true, please give it a try I promise it’s worth it. We would rate this 10 stars if we could. Thank you Ask Ariel for giving our sweet Toby a better life." - Noah, Ohio 2023
"I just want to thank you for your products, I purchased the IBD Kit for my cat Lucky. He was having issues with vomiting. He had trouble holding food down even though he was hungry. My vet tested for feline viruses, performed a biopsy of the spleen & administered steroid injections and cerenia for vomiting, but the treatment lasted for shorter periods of time. He was losing weight & was fading before my eyes. I prefer more natural treatments, so I stopped the vet visits, to try something else more natural. What did we have to lose at this point? I received the IBD Kit and administered the supplements & he immediately began to eat. At first it was occasional vomiting & I was still feeding the prescribed veterinary diet from my vet. We were making progress, but he was still sick. I decided to forgo that food & try the diet tips that came with my order. He ate it immediately & began to slowly increase his food intake, slowly gaining back some weight. I periodically gave him the supplements when he had a minor relapse. Today he is eating regularly & is keeping it down. Thank you for your products. It means so much that our cat is having a much more normal life, even if we have to live with his IBD." - Helen, Georgia 2023
"Our feral feline, Romeo, has been living in our basement since right before COVID hit. We have been unable to get him to the vet's office because of COVID, and most recently because they are only seeing patients in the parking lot! We are afraid we will lose him forever because he is so scared. That's when I found Ask Ariel! Several months ago, we noticed he developed a slight limp in his left paw. As the weeks went on, it was clear that he was getting worse and was suffering from Pillow Foot. I knew we needed to get him treatment but how? I started researching Pillow Foot and came across Ask Ariel's website. Their excellent advice regarding the "true" cause of Pillow Foot led me to try their protocol. WOW!!! After just one week, we were able to notice a marked improvement in his mobility. Now after three months, his little paw looks almost back to normal with NO limp. He also seems much happier and more content now. I can't thank Ask Ariel enough for providing safe, effective remedies to address the "root cause" of these diseases rather than just putting a band-aid on it!" - Dawn, Pennsylvania 2022
"This is Eddie showing off his lovely paw. He has been taking Power Probiotic and Immune Harmony since he had a terrible reaction to vaccinations which apparently made his immune system go haywire. He initially had a high prolonged fever and was on pain medication, fever reducer, and antibiotics. I started giving him Quent Drops & NOT Drops and within a week the fever was gone. Then he developed pillow paw and winky eye and could barely walk so we started the Power Probiotic and Immune Harmony and again within the week his eyes were clear and paws back to normal. He’s a very special boy. He was found as a kitten injured and on the center stripe of a lonely two lane blacktop. He’s been with me now for close to 10 years and thankfully back to his healthy and charming self. Thanks so much!" - Melinda, Texas 2022
"My sweet, beautiful Rudley has had tummy issues since he was a puppy. With Ask Ariel's help, we put him on a raw diet and have used their supplements…Amazing Omegas and Power Probiotics all these years. He will soon be eleven years old and he’s been very healthy.
"Samwell has been doing well thanks to Ask Ariel's Amazing Omegas, LypoZyme and Power Probiotic. He takes them daily to help with his collapsing trachea. The digestives help reduce any dietary issues or allergens that could irritate his throat and the omegas are an excellent anti-inflammatory." - Heather, New York 2021
"Since I started him on your trio of digestive aids (Probiotics, Enzymes, Gastro ULC) three months ago, he has not had a single vomiting episode, and now he eats his breakfast in the AM with gusto. No more gurgling stomach/grass-eating episodes and no more loud mouth smacking at night. I'm going to keep him on this supplement regime for a few more months and then see if I can cut back to once a day. Thanks so much Ask Ariel." - Odette, Pennsylvania 2021
"Beau is a seven-year-old chihuahua and rat terrier mix around 15 pounds. He is in great health but with a tad bit of stiffness when he is very active which is so much better with these products. Curcumin complex and Arthrosoothe are the best joint supplements I’ve ever used for my furbabies and the only ones I️ trust. Thank you for these great products!" - Micaela, Virginia 2021
"My cat, a 10 year old male Siamese, named Indie, was diagnosed with a large tumor next to his left adrenal gland/kidney in January of this year. The vets advised surgery immediately as the tumor was affecting his electrolytes (low potassium and high sodium). This operation is also very delicate and dangerous and we worried about his quality of life after the operation (if he survived it).
"We can't thank Susan Davis enough for her tremendous knowledge. My 5 lb. yorkie, Sissy, was diagnosed with early stage Protein Losing Enteropathy (Lymphagiectasia is a form of this) back in 2008. Before I even had a diagnosis, I scheduled a consult with Susan. Hands down, it was the best move I ever made.
"Molly, our 13 year old black lab was diagnosed with kidney disease in January of 2012 and was given a few months to live. She had been healthy most of her life, surviving a spindle cell cancer tumor removal in 2010. My husband and I were stunned with the diagnosis. In addition to her kidney disease, her legs were getting weak from arthritis and she was also starting to show signs of dementia. Needless to say, we were not optimistic about her future. That weekend, we went to the Pet Expo in Baltimore and were lucky enough to talk to a vendor who recommended we speak to Susan Davis with AskAriel.com. I scheduled a consultation. Susan provided me with an easy home made food receipe that was good for Molly's kidneys. She also recommended commercial canned food that would be good for her. Then she recommended Renelix and the Kidney Health Formula for her kidney disease in addition to the Amazing Omegas. We've been treating her with Susan's supplements in addition to administering sub-q fluids and 5 months later Molly is still eating, drinking and very much full of life. We know that she is still with us because of Susan Davis, her expertise, compassion and arsenal of supplements. We are so grateful we found Susan and AskAriel and have already started our younger dog, Brandy on the Amazing Omegas." - Szulinski Family, Maryland 2012
"My 9 year old Welsh Springer Spaniel mix, Max, didn't have much of an appetite and would frequently vomit. He would often rush out to eat grass and then vomit afterwards. I was worried because he was thin and seemed so uncomfortable. I followed the Ask Ariel program and changed his diet while using supplements such as Gastro ULC and Power Probiotic. I really wasn't expecting much because I had made prior changes before that hadn’t worked. Within just a few days, Max improved. He no longer was interested in eating grass and his vomiting stopped. Max is now at a healthy weight and it is so nice to see him so happy to see his meals." - Karen, California
"Toby is a Persian cat 15 years old. Last year he was diagnosed with Kidney disease along with a UTI. Toby was fed, what we thought was a healthy diet--Royal Canin dry food. Toby would not eat the food and was getting weaker every day, he couldn't defecate and he wasn't urinating. You could see and feel every bone in his body, his eyes were glazed over and his coat was dull. Toby would sit and stare at the wall--he had given up. We couldn't watch him slowly die so we took him off of all of the meds and food and started searching for help on the web. We found Ask Ariel!
"Thank you so much for the allergy/skin solutions! The Pro-Aller plus the Notatum alternating with Quentans not only gave my 15 yr. old Maltese, Beebop, relief from his respiratory and skin allergy symptoms --- these amazing products helped his skin to heal completely and his beautiful hair to return so thickly, he looks like a young pup again. His ear inflammation and "gunk" cleared up, and he's happy and frolicking like his "old self". He's living up to that Beebop name and wrestling with our two other Maltese, the rescued Bambi and Thumper. For the first time in years, his little tail is back up and curled as he romps around our yard. We are eternally grateful to you and continue to recommend you and your products to all our pet-owner friends and family." - Debbie, Florida 2012
"Davy was diagnosed with IBD and was pretty bloated with fluid retention. I went to two different veterinarians but Davy still was very lethargic and wouldn’t eat. As stronger medications such as prednisone were being prescribed, we decided to try supplements instead. We started Davy on Liver & Gallbladder Supplement, LypoZyme & Power Probiotic. We also consulted with Susan about Davy’s diet. His swelling went down and the IBD is completely under control. I sprinkle the capsules over his food since it is odorless and has no taste. He's feeling great and back to normal size-- no more fluid retention." - Elaine, California 2012
"We wanted to let you know how well the Immune Harmony has been working for Cody, our 5 year old spaniel/border collie mix. Cody has autoimmune thrombocytopenia (his immune system attacks his platelets). He developed this in the Spring of 2008 which was about four months after we rescued him. He had to take Prednisone and Azathioprine for months to get it under control. Then we had to take him off the Azathioprine because it started affecting his liver enzymes. We slowly reduced the Prednisone to get him to the lowest dose that would keep him in remission. This kept his platelet counts between 80,000 and 120,000 which were considered adequate. The low end of the normal range for platelets is between 175,000 and 200,000 depending on the testing lab. We wanted his platelets to be as close to the normal range as possible so we didn’t have to worry about a relapse. You suggested Immune Harmony.
"To all the kind souls at Ask Ariel,
"About two years ago, I brought home my first kitten, Mia. At first, she was a playful bundle of energy, but then her health began to deteriorate. I noticed that Mia’s stomach was bloated and tight. She never seemed to be able to get comfortable, and she suffered from severe diarrhea and dehydration. We took her to four different veterinarians, even an Internal Medicine specialist. Mia was poked and prodded. She had blood tests, ultrasounds, and an expensive scoping procedure to get a biopsy of her small bowel. She was finally diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. After trying four different dry cat foods and a long list of medications with horrible side effects, we were still frustrated, and, worst of all, my kitten was still sick. We felt that the medications were a band-aid for a larger problem. We wanted a solution that would not only relieve her symptoms but one that would last. We finally decided to try a holistic approach. We did some research online and found Susan’s website. After a consultation with Susan, we were ready to try a combination of herbal remedies and a wet food diet. Susan suggested we try Nature’s Variety wet cat food. The results were quick. After making the dietary and supplement changes suggested by Susan, Mia’s bloating and diarrhea disappeared! She was more alert, hydrated, and she had a beautiful, shiny coat. Mia is now a healthy, active two-year-old cat. Thank you Susan and Nature’s Variety." - Stacie, California 2008
"Rocky, our 16 year old kitty, is doing quite well. At 15, he developed an allergy and we tried everything. However, after our consultation with Susan Davis and a process of elimination of different foods, we found that he was allergic to chicken. He does Notatum and Pro-Aller every night mixed in a very small amount of his high quality canned food. When he has an occasional flare-up of the Herpes virus, we alternate Notatum and Quentans at night -- still with the Pro-Aller. He is doing so well. People can't believe he is 16... one happy camper in Eastern, NC." - Deborah, North Carolina 2012
"In February 2007, our precious Rottweiler, Wyatt, was diagnosed with bone cancer. The lesion was on his left front wrist. The life expectancy was 2 to 6 months so we set out to help make Wyatt comfortable. Amputation was not an option for him. We went to a cancer specialist and got some great supplements. We went to an oncologist and she suggested a bone strengthener Pamidrinate that wouldn't cure him but might help with the pain and possibly retard the tumor a bit. She also suggested acupuncture and contacting Susan Davis for nutritional support.
"Bella is our fourth and most sensitive golden. She developed chronic UTI's and yeast on her skin. We have always fed Bella premium dog food since she was a puppy. After many expensive tests, medications and possible surgery to correct her problems, we found Susan Davis. We have had nothing but good results. Susan directed us to better health and happiness for Bella with her knowledge and expertise. As my husband so simply put it, "She's fixed!!!!!" Thank you Susan." - Bick Family, California 2009
"I had tried several other brands of fish oil for my 3 year old Yorkie, Tango. His coat continued to look dry while using the other brands. I started using Amazing Omegas and seriously within a few DAYS noticed a new sheen and luster on his coat. I believe that the difference is the uncompromising quality of this product. The first time I opened the bottle, I immediately noticed the fresh smell of this oil. Tango’s groomer, who is an expert on canine coats, comments regularly about the health and beauty of his coat. We love this product and would highly recommend it." - Barber Family, California
"My name is Maverick and I am a 10 year old Miniature Pinscher Mix. My friends call me Ricky but I will come to just about anything if you have a tasty treat. You’d never know it from my sexy, studly stature, but I was once a very sick old man and nearly died from complications related to diabetes and obesity. Basically, I needed a complete overhaul from my bad eating habits of cheese, kibble, milk bones (large ones of course!), table scraps and anything else I could beg for. By the time my mom realized there was a problem (I started to drink lots of water and lose weight rapidly), I was in a very serious state of ketoacidosis and liver dysfunction. My mom knew that I had to give up my naughty habits to get me back on track.
"Bruiser had chronic yeast and skin problems. We had been to the veterinarian many times but the problem would just come back. We scheduled a consultation with Susan Davis and followed her dietary and supplement recommendations which included Olive Leaf Extract. Bruiser's yeast finally cleared up and I receive many compliments on how nice his coat looks. It was the best consultation fee I could have spent." - Genette, Hawaii
"Layla is a 3 year old Yorkshire Terrier who was diagnosed with pancreatitis in October of 2008. Our vet wanted Layla to be put on canned prescription formula to manage this and I knew I couldn't do that because I didn't agree with the ingredients in these foods. I talked to a friend who had used Susan in the past for her Yorkie with great success. Our vet was quite sure that Layla's issues could not be managed with a home cooked diet but we were determined to try. From the moment I talked to Susan in our first consultation, I knew that Layla was in good hands and that through her help, everything would be fine. Layla was put on a strict diet, along with Ask Ariel's LypoZyme and Power Probiotic. Layla's Spec numbers went from 740 (under 400 is considered normal) in October, down to 164 in February. Our family is beyond thankful to Susan and all that she has done to save our girl from a lifetime of horrible canned food. I recommend Susan to anyone I meet who is considering home cooking or who is dealing with a dog with health issues. I just can't say enough about how knowledgeable Susan is and how deeply she cares." - Pluss Family, Canada 2009
"Smokey (8 years old) said that he wanted to thank you all for his Colostrum For Pets. To help him with the stomatitis, we sprinkle Colostrum For Pets in a little ham baby food with some spring water. He literally licks it up and it helps to coat his gums and he is one satisfied baby. Rocky (16 years old) enjoys it as well and it helps his immune system. Wonderful Product!" - Deborah, North Carolina
"Just want to thank you so much for helping our kitty, Jessie with her IBD. She is so much better, playing with her toys and our other cat, Romeo. The Notatum and Power Probiotic really worked! I give them to her as a bedtime snack. We are so grateful that we have our Jessie back." - Elaine, Florida
"Molly Marie, our kitty, was very sick and had fleas, ear mites and hot spots when we rescued her. We took her to the vet numerous times and she was treated with antibiotics and steroids that proved to be unsuccessful. We had blood work done and determined that she had a staph infection on the hot spots as well as an infection in her pancreas and a UTI, too. She once again took antibiotics and everything healed except the hot spots, which by this time had become a lot worse with the largest one being the size of a lemon. I tried organic shampoo, sprays and creams—nothing worked.
"Cookie is my senior cocker spaniel/dachshund mix rescued a few years ago. Just over a year ago, she had a malignant mammary tumor removed and it was suggested that she have chemotherapy immediately thereafter so it wouldn't come back. Instead, I did some research for alternatives, found Ask Ariel, and then decided to try the OncoPet and Immune Harmony cancer package. It is obvious that Cookie's health only got better from that point on and I am grateful to Susan Davis for her advice and fabulous products! Cookie also benefits from Phosphatidyl Serine for her Cushing's Disease, Amazing Omegas, and Power Probiotic.
"Sophie, our sweet boxer, is now 14 years old. Boxers generally only live 8 - 10 years. Thanks to Ask Ariel's diet and supplement program, Sophie is going strong physically and mentally. As many senior dogs do, Sophie had developed pancreatitis and was having digestive issues; she did not want to eat. Susan Davis, Ask Ariel Nutritionist, formulated a low fat diet for Sophie and recommended using the supplements, K9 Digestive Enzymes and LypoZyme. Sophie no longer has pancreatitis and she is back to chowing down her meals.
"Murphy was diagnosed with Stromal Sarcoma after a tumor on her spleen was discovered (which was removed through surgery) & was given 3 months (tops) to live. The vet told us to not even bother with chemo or radiation. This all happened in early August of '06. We contacted Susan Davis and did a consultation. She gave us a special cancer diet for Murphy and a supplement protocol (OncoPet and other products) based on her symptoms and type of cancer. It is now the end of April 2007 and Murphy is doing very well. She just celebrated her 8th birthday in March and still has tons of energy & is so lovable. It is almost as if she knows every day is a gift. Thank you for all your care and concern. Murphy sends her love :)" - Gina, New York
"Oliver was getting chronic UTIs and we tried many rounds of antibiotics. We used the Akutur along with Power Probiotic and Notatum. This really seemed to help stop the cycle of nonstop infections. Ollie has gone 6 months without an infection. Whenever he shows signs that he might be getting another one, we immediately start him on the Akutur and Notatum and it works right away." - Lynette, California 2010
"Happy New Year! Thank you for keeping our Labrador Stanley well. He just celebrated his 9th Birthday! After his cancer diagnosis in early September, we all wondered if he would be here for Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then his birthday. He has not seen his general vet or specialist since his diagnosis. We attribute his wellness to your products! YOU have BLESSED us immensely! Each time we receive an order from you, somehow Stanley knows "his ladies from California have sent him a package." Our heartfelt gratitude to all of you!" - Jodi, Pennsylvania 2011
"My name is Gunnar. Here I am at my 16th birthday party having a blast. My mom did a consultation with Susan Davis and I am feeling so much better. I currently take SAMe and LypoZyme, which are pills that help the liver. Since I have been on these pills, I have been feeling really great. My appetite increased and I have a lot more energy. My mom says that without these great products, I wouldn't be here and both of us highly recommend them!" - Gunnar, Oregon 2007
"Our dog Bleu is 8 years old and very active. Recently, we noticed he was really slowing down, seemed stiff and overall less agile. He stopped jumping on our bed and seemed to be much less spry. He also had an episode where he was crying out about his neck following a day of playing with his friends. We gave Bleu ArthroSoothe and noticed improvement within a few days (He already was using the Amazing Omegas which has helped his coat and allergies tremendously). But, when upon adding the Curcumin for Pets--wow--what a difference in energy. Our bouncy boy Bleu is back! We have heard similar stories about cats with inflamed, swollen limbs. We hope your pet will show the bounce and energy that we have experienced." - Davis Family, California
"Tootsie was a stray who came into our local shelter. I brought her home to foster her for Internet MinPin Service a year ago. She was somewhere around 10 years old at the time. She apparently had had injuries to her back legs. There was little muscle tone and she could barely walk, often holding one leg up as she tried. I started her on a glucosamine/chondroitin preparation but saw little progress. Three months later someone told me about Ask Ariel products and I purchased the ArthroSoothe and started her on that. She made amazing progress. Within a month she was able to use the leg that previously she had not walked on. A couple months later she was able to go at a fast walk and a few more months and she could trot. Six months after starting the ArthroSoothe she was able to actually run. Today you would never know that her back legs had been so bad. She has good muscle tone, runs, uses steps, and never has any more discomfort." - Jean, North Carolina
"I am writing this testimonial so that others like me who are very hesitant to follow instructions from someone (I didn't even know) on the internet can help their dog. Sophie had recurrent urinary tract infections that became resistant to antibiotics. As a result of the large amount of antibiotics, she started to have digestive and itching issues. After two different vets, with multiple visits, costing lots of money and no improvement, I was extremely frustrated.
"I am writing to thank you for your site and products. On New Year's Eve, I took my 18 month chihuahua Loki to the vet. He had not been eating, was sleeping all the time and was losing weight. He only weighs 2.5 lbs and could not afford to lose weight. I was told by the vet that he had renal failure and would not live long as the treatment and/or dialysis for him would be very expensive. I was heartbroken to say the least. I began to search the internet to try to find something that could help my baby. There was your site, www.askariel.com. I ordered the kidney supplements and I am happy to say that Loki is back to normal. Eating, playing with his sister, running around the house just as if he had never been sick. Thank you so much for the work you do." - Ruth, Michigan
"I ordered herbs for Ranger, my 14 year old cat, on Friday Jan 29th, 2010. To my great surprise, they arrived here in Upstate NY on Monday Feb 1st! Ranger, my kitty was near death. She hid to sleep constantly. Usually cats hide to die. She was in really bad shape. I had one cat die of liver disease and two others from renal failure. Ranger is my third cat with renal failure so I know how they act before they die.
Archie & Noonie
"I would like to thank Susan Davis for all of her knowledge and expertise in nutrition and diet. My Archie and Noonie would not be here today if I hadn't found her! Through her instruction, we have corrected the heart problem Archie had and the kidney problem Noonie had. My vet is amazed and to me, it is no less than a miracle! Susan has taught me how to keep them healthy and happy in their "golden years". Thank you." - Underwood Family, Texas
"In April 2008, our 10-year-old dog, Teddy, a Chow Chow rescue, was diagnosed with a liver tumor. Our vet did not know if it was cancer at the time. As Teddy’s tumor grew, he was able to be tested, and cancer was confirmed. We were told he was too old for conventional treatment and, as his cancer progressed, to simply keep him comfortable. The vet had no hope for his recovery.
"My dog Marco was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. I have been giving him suppleemnts which really seem to help. However, one of his symptoms is constant coughing. It is so horrible to see him suffer. The ApoTuss and ApoPulm helped him so much. I can't believe that it completely stopped his coughing. We previously had tried some coughing medication from the veterinarian and Marco was still coughing. Thank you so much for helping Marco feel better!" - Karen, California 2010
"Just wanted to thank you. Our 4 year old Selkirk Rex, Zin, was adopted through a rescue when he was 2. He was recently diagnosed with the Herpes Virus; which explained a lot of his illnesses since we have had him. Two months ago, he became ill with a really bad cold; he could hardly breathe and soon stopped eating and drinking. We took him to two Vets, both tried hard to help him with antibiotics and antihistamines; but he still was suffering. I found your website and ordered the Quentans and the Notatum drops and gave them to him daily. He is now almost back to his normal little self and we are so grateful! He is eating and drinking. He even jumped his little brother tonight! His breathing is pretty much normal now for his flat little nose. Thanks again for helping our Zin!" - Olson Family, Virginia 2013
"Thank you for the amazing supplements you provide. We see a tremendous improvement in the lives of all our cats and dogs! They have more energy and are far healthier. Subsequently we spend a lot less time at the veterinary office. With your supplements we are looking forward to having our babies with us for many more years! The picture attached is of my Lab mix Julie. Just shy of her 3rd birthday, she was diagnosed with epilepsy. The day after the test came back we went online to email you guys about her condition. We bought everything that was recommended and a year later we've been seizure free and have seen a remarkable improvement in her attitude and energy. She is taking her Dog Brain Booster, Purrfect Pet CoQ10, Curcumin, EFA oils, and probiotics daily. She is only 3 years old and is the sweetest girl! Thank you for giving me many more healthy years with her!" - Malena, Hawaii 2014
