Jasper’s Journey with Autoimmune Disease

This blog entry is dedicated to a brave little Miniature Pinscher (Min Pin) named Jasper.

We received a phone call in January of 2015 from a lady who explained how her Miniature Pinscher (Min Pin) was losing his battle with Autoimmune Disease. She explained how she has tried everything recommended by her Veterinarian and nothing seemed to be helping Jasper. He was continually getting worse instead of better; she had heard of Dr Kruger’s Formulas from friends and decided to give us a call. Shortly after the call she texted us Jasper’s photos so we could see his current condition. (The next photos may be hard for some viewers; viewer discretion is advised)

When you love your dog and you see them going through something like this it just tears your heart out.

These pictures were very hard for us to view and we knew that we needed to act right away to help Jasper! Through our conversation we explained how Jasper needed to be on our Everyday Health Formula and Healthy Skin & Coat Formula to bring Jasper’s system back into balance to address the Autoimmune Disease, work on clearing up his skin issues and start getting his hair to grow again. We explained how this was not going to be a quick fix and she would need to be patient. Give Jasper’s body time to build up on the supplements and allow his Immune System to go back to its normal level.

DISCALIMER – Supplements are NOT a cure for anything. Proper supplementation can and will help to bring your dogs body back into balance the way nature intended. You should ALWAYS consult your Veterinarian when your dog becomes injured or ill. 

The change in Jasper’s condition was gradual and positive; they could see a difference within a couple of weeks. They continued the supplement therapy for several months and Jasper continued to improve. The progression of his Autoimmune Disease had come to a complete halt at this point.

Jasper eventually started feeling good enough to interact and play again. His hair has continued to fill in all of the bare spots and he is starting to look like his old self again.

It has been a little over a year now since we first heard of Jasper’s situation; we are happy to report that he is doing GREAT! We are also happy to report that Jasper’s Autoimmune Disease is in full remission. His health is fantastic, his skin has cleared up and his hair is almost completely filled in.

All of us at Dr Kruger Pet Supplements are overjoyed that we could step in and offer our assistance to help Jasper. He will always have a very special place in our hearts and we will continue to stay on top of his progress and life.

If you would like more information on Dr Kruger Pet Supplements just go to or give us a call and we will glad to speak with you!

Update from Jasper’s Mom;

Kathy Blannin McKenzie – Hardest thing I have ever been through with any of my pets. We had so much support from our amazing vet, support groups, breeders and Dr Kruger’s. Jasper is back to competing in agility, hogging the bed, greeting customers and generally being his old self. “Pemphigus foliaceus is an autoimmune blistering disease of the skin with characteristic lesions that are scaly, crusted erosions, often on an erythematous base. Mucosal involvement is absent even with widespread disease.
