"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.

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
