Our Wolf Study

Takoda: Age 10 – 110 lbs

October 19, 2017 – Takoda was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and put on a new drug called Lymphocyte T Cell (LTCI). We saw improvement, but the results seemed to last for only two weeks. The cost was $150 every two weeks and became too expensive.

We have tried glucosamine, homeopathic remedies, acupuncture and massage. We are hoping that adding Wolf Milk will be beneficial and relieve his pain and discomfort as well as giving him more mobility. He lost his mate Alaska in late October 2018 and has been in a state of grief still over her loss.

March 6, 2019 – Takoda had his first dose on this day. We started on a low dose (.3ml) twice per a day.

April 5, 2019 – Dr. Gray says Takoda needs to lose weight to relieve pressure for his hip dysplasia. I backed up on his dry food a little bit, he is a pretty picky eater anyway. He started to lose weight, almost looked like too much at first. We had not seen him so thin since he was a pup, so it alarmed us. As the weather got hotter, he seemed lethargic. His senior blood panel came back perfect, but after Alaska, we were concerned he was not himself.

July 3, 2019 – Training day and Takoda was running around with his pack with vigor. We have not seen him so energized in at least 4 years. He ran, would not rest afterwards and insisted on running the training course more than 3 times. He even got frisky with two females and bossy with his son. He jumped and put his feet up putting his full weight on his back legs. It was breathtaking. For the first time since Alaska passed in October 2018 that we stopped fearing he would join her soon.

July 9, 2019 – Takoda ate dinner, asked for more and then played and rough housed with his pack family. Having fun at home for the first time in years.

October 12, 2019 – We have a sectional couch with a chaise lounge that Takoda has had a hard time jumping up on when he wants to take a nap. It is about one and a half feet high. Today I found Takoda napping on the bed in the master bedroom. The bed is about a foot higher than the couch and does not have enough room for him to get a running start. Only Wolf Milk would have allowed that 116lb boy with hip dysplasia to get up on that bed. 

January 16, 2020 – Takoda’s appetite seems to have increased dramatically. We had been having to coax him to eat. In the past couple of weeks, he has been looking and asking for more food.

Keme: Age 9 – 82 lbs

August 21, 2014 – Keme diagnosed by Dr. Allison Hoffman of Eye Care for Animals – Pasadena with Pannus (Chronic Superficial Keratitis). Prescribed these two steroid treatments: NeoPolyDex and Tacrolimus Ointments for life. It is an autoimmune disorder and we are hoping that Wolf Milk will help her conditions and not need the steroid treatment after some time.

Not sure if Wolf Milk will be able to help damage already done to her eyes, especially her right eye which is the most compromised. She also tends to chew on her paws until they are raw. We hope this anxiety will be diminished or even disappear on Wolf Milk.

March 6, 2019 – Keme had his first dose on this day. We started on a low dose (.3ml) once a day. After two weeks on Wolf Milk, we started giving her the two steroid treatments every other day.

April 5, 2019 – Dr. Gray sees no inflammation in Keme’s eyes. We will wait to see on her next check up before backing off even more.

Wahkahn: Age 4 – 90 lbs 

Our wild boy is very insecure and although 4 years old, he still tends to use his teeth to grab and chew. He only has very supervised time in the house and he misses his pack terribly. We are hoping Wolf Milk will relieve his stresses and insecure chewing and grabbing.

July 5, 2019 – Wahkahn has gone from taking 1 ½ hours to settle down and fall asleep in the house to 20 – 30 minutes, without tearing anything apart. When told to “leave it” he can reluctantly stop the behavior.

July 21, 2019 – Wahkahn’s fur has completely transformed from a bit wiry and full of dandruff to silky smooth, soft and shiny.

Freedom: Age 7 – 105 lbs

Genetically, Shadow and her line have very sensitive digestive tracts. Being Shadow’s nephew, he cannot tolerate raw meat and chicken like the other wolves. In March of 2016, he got a hold of a piece of insulation that looked like a furry creature. Although he did not swallow it, he suffered damage to his intestinal system. We are hoping Wolf Milk will help heal so he has less discomfort and more solid stools. 

August 1, 2019 – I ran out of the soft beef jerky treats Freedom likes so much and gave him one of the drier, harder chicken treats he also loves, but seemed to have caused him to have some pretty runny stools. He loves them and seemed to have no changes to his healthy solid stools. I am alternating the treats to see if he can stomach them since being on Wolf Milk.

Ogin: Age 9 – 72 lbs

Suffers from separation anxiety mostly, but she has been prone to benign cysts.

One was surgically removed on March 15, 2017, and one was aspirated on April 5th, 2017 and healed on its own.

November 25, 2019 – Ogin has a lump the size of a softball removed from her right shoulder. On November 29th, the biopsy revealed Sarcoma. We do not know when it started to grow and how long since she had not been on Wolf Milk until June of 2019. An ultrasound and X-ray showed no other evidence of metastasis. We put her on Wolf Milk twice a day and we are watching her very carefully. 

Cochise: Age 9 – 120 lbs


Having a voracious appetite, he is heavy, especially since he was neutered. We cannot back off on anymore food than we already have. He eats the same amount as the females half his size.


He also suffers from Hyperkeratosis and has had an issue with pressure sores on his elbow, one that required an operation on November 10, 2014. We are hoping Wolf Milk will help with his skin issues.


January 16, 2020 – We have noticed that Cochise has become more friendly and more trusting of male visitors than ever before. A personality or psychological shift has happened since adding Wolf Milk.

Chenoa: Age 9 – 58 lbs

She is a finicky eater and needs some prodding in order to eat enough.

We are hoping Wolf Milk will help stimulate her appetite.

Kachina: Age 9 – 101 lbs

I the lowest pack ranking wolf in the pack. She inhales her food and therefore is hardly satisfied. We struggle with keeping her weight down.

She is also very insecure, shy and fearful. We are hoping Wolf Milk helps her confidence.

Tehya: Age 9 – 60 lbs

She is the runt of the litter and very small. She spends time with Wahkahn and he can get overbearing. We have noticed that she is having some pain in her lower back after a day out training and hunting.

We are hoping Wolf Milk will help her with the discomfort after typical activity.

January 16, 2020 – Tehya seems to have less discomfort and pain after training and hunting. She has improved greatly.
