Jemma is 12 and weighs about 27kgs. As per below she had a permanent limp in her front right paw/leg. Despite having the arthritis injections every 6mths at the Vet, this did not really improve or disappear.
Based on her limp, we stopped walking her in order to alleviate some of her discomfort and just allowed her to get her exercise running around the backyard. At our last vet visit it was suggested we try an arthritis specific liquid in her food. This didn't improve her limp enough for me to continue with the treatment.
It was expensive and as I saw no major improvement, I didn't want to outlay more money for blood tests (they have to have these before they continue on it) to then pay for something that I didn't feel was working. We were also offered an arthritic biscuit which is all your dog eats but yet again, I didn't want to change her diet and only give her biscuits that there was no guarantee would work.
I then contacted Dr Katrina Warren (I am a fan of her Facebook page) and asked her input as a vet. She kindly suggested Rose-Hip Vital Canine and was also lovely enough to send me a 500gm tub to try. At the outset we didn't know the cost of the powder and now that I do, I am so appreciative of the free trial as I would not have outplayed the money without being able to see the results.
As Jemma is the oldest of our dogs and had the most discomfort, we gave it to her and when I saw the results of her limp disappearing and her seeming more comfortable, we decided to then give it to Fletcher too. Fletcher – Our Brittany Spaniel Fletch will be 10 this December and he weighs about 20kgs. He has always been a very active boy and would fetch a ball all day long if we allowed it.
We noticed that when we walk him or after a lot of ball time, he would become stiff and sore. At night he would yelp in pain (bear in mind he is a bit of a sook, howls/cries when vet gives him injections) when he got up to move his position. Based on this, we had greatly reduced his ball time and stopped walking him. Our dogs do have half an acre to run on at home so they were not missing out completely.
Fletch spends a good part of the afternoon chasing and being swooped by the magpies, they seek him out and he loves it. Whilst I cannot say I see any other benefits from using the Rosehip Vital Canine, the fact Jemma's limp disappeared and Fletch no longer cries in pain after activity was/is enough for me to continue the treatment. We are now playing a lot more ball with Fletch and both dogs are back to enjoying regular walks again. Your product is amazing.
