Pixie Pie

Our goat Pixie developed a large growth on her neck, right underneath her chin. It was getting bigger, so we took her to our veterinarian to check it out. He said that it needed to be removed and she should stay over night for surgery. We anxiously waited to find out how the operation went and late that evening finally got word that, although extremely extensive, the surgery was a success! Pixie was recovering nicely and would be ready to go home the next day. Pixie has stitches and a drain where the tumor was and she is on antibiotics and pain meds to keep her comfortable and free of infection. Of course we applied Puremedy to help her wound heal and additional Sun Chlorella Algae Superfood to boost her immune system, to Pixie’s regiment as well. Pixie is now at our Healing Center so the suture sight stays clean and she can get some much needed TLC. Pixie will return to our barnyard very soon so you can all come and hug her.

Caring for over 170 animals is so expensive. Aside from their regular food and annual shots, deworming and dental care, sometimes things happen and our animals need special medical attention. Thank you so much for supporting us so we can do this work! We cannot afford do this without your help! Thank you for being a part of our Gentle family! To learn more, click here.

"Because Animals is a small company with a big mission: to create nutritious pet food without ever harming any animals or the environment. We believe that factory farming has no place in pet nutrition, which is why all of Because Animals' products are made without slaughtering animals. "

"Our ultimate goal is to end the raising and slaughtering of farmed animals to feed our pets.
Until we get to that point, we are so very grateful there are sanctuaries like The Gentle Barn’s three locations to give refuge to abused, tormented, neglected and suffering animals who deserve so much more from the world."
