This story was shared by the Nevada Humane Society.
When Aphid came to the care of the Nevada Humane Society, she was suffering from severe health and weight issues along with a collapsing trachea and extreme dental issues. At the time the treating veterinarian placed Aphid on the EmerAid diet, her weight was 3.4 pounds and body condition score was 3 (thin).
Aphid had no issues with eating EmerAid and enjoyed the flavor right away. Because of her dental issues, it was given to her as more of a liquid form, about 4 or 5 times a day in small portions. In just under two weeks, Aphid’s body condition score was a 4 (lean). By six weeks, Aphid’s body condition score was up to a 5 (ideal)!
