Sheer Etiquette (Ellie)

CONDITION: Joint Pain
RIDER: Susan Paix's
LOCATION: AUS

In 2011 we started competing at Grand Prix International, unfortunately arthritic changes and stiffness set in for Ellie and we sadly decided to retire. Six months ago I started Ellie on Rose-Hip Vital. The change is unbelievable. 

Ellie is better now than when she was competing. Ellie and I are going back into competition at the ripe age of 20. This is so exciting!

Life is too short to be unhealthy. Thank you Rose-Hip Vital!

"The improvement has been nothing short of phenomenal! Our vet is amazed!"

  

  


  


Severley ruptured CL in a Limousin stud bull. Severely lame could not walk at all. Prognosis was no cure and euthanasia recommended as this injury advised not repairable. Bovine specialists were also consulted who advised same. Discussions with vet pre my decision to try RHV raised concerns that bovine stomach would likely not allow absorption of product. We started administering RHV, figured nothing to lose and the improvement has been nothing short of phenomenal! Our vet is amazed! This bull could barely walk at all, he was severely and horrifically immobile and lame. The improvement so far had been absolutely remarkable!! After approx 6 weeks of treatment he made a significant, noticeable and phenomenal improvement with full mobility, and gait, covering large strides comfortably (though some impediment). He also seems much happier, comfortable, and more his normal self. I have also noticed his overall condition has improved considerably. The difference between him pre treatment, and now is simply unbelievable! Thank you.

 

Letter from Veterinarian Dr Scott Bissaker BVSc 14/04/2022:


Morpeth Veterinary Hospital
105 Swan Street
Morpeth NSW 2321

To whom it may concern,

I presented to Mr and Mrs Sutcliffe’s property on the 22nd of December, 2021 to examine Man O Man, a mature Limousin Bull for acute right hind lameness. On physical examination, he was found to have marked (grade 4) right hind lameness, right stifle instability and joint effusion consisten with, and thus presumptive diagnosis of, craniel cruciate rupture. Unfortunately, the prognosis for this type of injury is poor with most individuals humanely euthanized.

There are experimental studies in the USA showing promising resluts for surgical repair however we could not find anyone in Australia performing these surgeries here and this medical management was the only option available to Man O Man. Traditionally medical management of these cases included anti-inflammatory pain relief and strict confinement for up to 6 months. Oral supplements used in other species are often found to be ineffective in Ruminant species due to microflora action in the forestomach, thus resulting in poor bioavailability to the patient.

Mrs Sutcliffe researched and proposed using Rose Hip during his recovery and due to the above reasoning, I was skeptical of its effects. Man O Man has been on Rose Hip supplementation for a couple of months now and I’m happy to report his clinical picture is much improved. His lameness, despite still being present, has improved dramatically and he appears to be moving much more freely and sure footed.

I would be interested to see any previous, current or future studies on the use of Rose Hip in cattle for not only traumatic orthopeadic injuries but also for degenerative diseases.

Kind regards,

Dr Scott Bissaker BVSc

“He is definitely moving much more freely and jerking hind leg action is virtually non-existent”.

 

 

At the time of this video, late November 2019, was when i began to trial Rosehip Vital in his diet

I actually was seeing improvement a few weeks before i took this video, but as I was pretty sceptical, wanted to leave it a bit longer to make sure he didn’t relapse, lol. As seen, he is definitely moving much more freely, and jerking hind leg action is virtually non-existent. During the time he was supplemented on rosehip vital, I continued the massage therapy, but no other changes or supplements were made to diet.

AGE: 20
CONDITION:
Lame
LOCATION: Aus

 

“We struggle to keep up with him now!”

 

 

 

Our pony was intermittently lame and stiff. This often meant that he was unable to be ridden and my daughter would have to miss pony club rallies. After much we made some minor changes to his feed and got out our Vet.

We invested in hoof X-Rays which resulted in some minor changes to how our farrier was trimming our pony. Our vet told us despite these changes which would improve the situation that we would most likely need to keep our pony on anti-inflammatory medication for the rest of his life.

I introduced Rosehip Vital while he was still on the medication and gradually decreased the anti-inflammatory medication. I’ve kept him on the Rosehip Vital powder daily in his feed and we struggle to keep up with him on foot at pony club now.

He has not needed any medication for months now and is a much happier pony.

 

Blaze

AGE: 5
CONDITION: Performance
LOCATION: Aus

 

“After 3 weeks on Rose-Hip Vital, Blaze is so much more forward and willing!”

 

 

 

 Since purchasing Blaze in March 2019, he has been having some performance issues. I had a vet check done; they couldn’t find any issues. He gets regular massages, which he loves! But they don’t seem to help relieve his stiffness much and he saw a chiropractor who said he couldn’t really find any obvious reason for his stiffness. I noticed he was worse, very jerky and stiff going downhill and would often be very hesitant or refuse to go downhill.  

My chiropractor suggested I try Blaze on some joint formula, and I had seen Rosehip Vital advertised and after I watched a couple of videos and read some reviews I decided to give it a go.  

After 3 weeks on Rose-Hip Vital, Blaze is so much more forward and willing! In addition to being a more willing partner, I believe Rose-Hip Vital helped improve his overall condition. He is looking amazing! I definitely recommend this product to anyone who’s horse is having performance issues or is suffering from any joint related pain.

“Flighty is now able to trot and canter to her full potential!”

 

 

 

Flighty’s condition before taking rose hip vital was that she would short step on her right hind leg. And could not trot nor canter properly.

Since taking rose hip vital Flighty is now able to trot and canter to her full potential.

We are now also working cattle to get ready for our cutting season next year.

Tatta

AGE:
CONDITION: Navicular
LOCATION: Aus

 

“Back riding after 6 weeks, I am ecstatic, he is feeling great!”

 

 

I turned Tatta out for about 4 months, took his shoes off, he was fine. When I started bringing him back into work he was lame.I got him shod, still lame. Had the chiropractor out, still lame. Then we went to the vet for x-rays which showed early stages of navicular.

Vet suggested cortisone injections and corrective shoeing.
One injection once a week for 4 weeks and then once a month after that. He had a total of 5. They hardly helped.

Then I got Rose-Hip Vital Equine after seeing before and after videos on Facebook. At the 3 week mark in the video I was still half way through my first 1.5kg tub.

He now has wedges on and rubber wedges in between the hoof and the shoe (he always had wedges on in the past).

I was ready for his early retirement; he was starting to look and feel like a garden ornament. Back riding after 6 weeks, I am ecstatic, he is feeling great.

"We are watching a miracle unfold before our eyes!"


We have been using Rose-Hip Vital for 4 weeks on our mare who has been literally struggling to walk for over two years.

Our mare, Simmy, who turns 21 this month, in her halcyon days was a huge moving horse and reached great heights here in Tasmania.

In recent years she has been afflicted with severe arthritis and huge swelling in her near side knee and significant rotation of the pedal bone in her off side fore. Hence her struggle to walk.

It was very confronting to watch and recently the vet suggested that we need to, as a family, have 'that' conversation to consider putting her to rest.

We have tried everything to help her as we love her with all our heart.

Then Rose Hip Vital came into our lives! The change in Simmy is absolutely unbelievable! She is now moving as well as we have seen her for over two years, her coat is magnificent and, yesterday, we saw her have a little canter...twice!

We are watching a miracle unfold before our eyes!

The significant swelling in her knee remains..and the x-rays don't lie...and we know she will never be cured...but the joy it has given us to see this new lease on life is just euphoric.

We have no doubt that Rose-Hip Vital has given us a gift which we never thought possible; more time with our beautiful girl.

Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts.

Toby was suffering from Laminitis in his front right hoof which caused him acute pain. He also has arthritis in his back from an old injury which also caused him constant pain...


Toby has been taking Rose-Hip Vital for 4 weeks now, and the improvement is absolutely fantastic, he has gradually, day by day improved, and he is now able to walk normally without any pain in his hoof or back. Toby hasn't been without pain since his injury a couple of years ago, today he seems to be pain free. Even his coat looks so much healthier and shiny. I am so happy with the results from using Rose-Hip Vital, it's an absolute miracle worker... Cannot recommend Rose-Hip Vital enough, amazing results. Will continue to use everyday. Toby loves eating his Rose-Hip Vital with grated apple and carrot, he comes running for his Rose-Hip Vital. I'm so happy that he is happy, I used to feel so bad for him, seeing him in so much pain. We only just recently discussed euthanasia, as we couldn't see a way through his pain. Thanks to Rose-Hip-Vital, it seems as though we have found our way through his pain, and we cannot be happier.

"They are in incredible condition that I can whole heartedly say Rose-Hip Vital is the aspect of their management that keeps them looking and feeling great"


Rose-Hip Vital is incorporated into both of my horses diets. One of my horses [Beethoven] has been using Rose-Hip Vital since we purchased him over four years ago and my new horse [Savvy] was started on it when she was purchased a few months ago.
As high performance horses, their health is an essential part of their management so I am always conscious of how their internal health and diet is going to assist their physical health.


Beethoven is approaching 15 years of age so I am even more conscious of maintaining the health of his joints and combating any inflammation caused during training and competition. Rose-Hip Vital has been a critical component of his care, evident through his amazing joint condition recognised by our vets who have recently completed a full health check.
He is also a buckskin and light skin horses are typically more prone to inflammatory skin conditions. Once we commenced Rose-Hip Vital, the irritated skin patches around his muzzle and white socks subsided quickly and his skin was easily softened - I also applied some of your Rosehip Oil to his dry patches to heal the skin.


Savvy is an 8 year old mare so starting her health maintenance at a young age is important to ensure she has great performance now and her joint health is looked after as we progress to higher jumping levels. When we bought savvy, she had an area of joint fluid that we were told would stay put and wasn’t harming her. However, I wanted to make sure it would affect her in the future. She was immediately commenced on Rose-Hip Vital and within the loading period, the fluid bubble had completely disappeared and has not come back since. I would say I’m shocked, but after previous use of Rose-Hip Vital, I knew Rose-Hip Vital was taking care of her joints.


Both Horses coats are shiny and soft and they continue to receive complements from people passing by when we’re at competitions. Overall, they are in incredible condition that I can whole heartedly say Rose-Hip Vital is the aspect of their management that keeps them looking and feeling great.
