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.

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

We always feed it to our work horses now and they love it.

10/10 recommend to anyone plus they’ve always got specials on.

Sherman is a 24 year old quarter horse that has always suffered from poor hoof quality especially thin soles and hoof walls. Now with his advanced age he is bothered by arthritis. I started him on Rose Hip Vital about six months ago hoping to see an improvement in his arthritis symptoms. He is moving so much better and seems to be more comfortable. He runs across the pasture like a youngster when I turn him out. My farrier has been very impressed with the improvement in his hoof quality. He now has better sole depth and thicker, more normal hoof walls that hold nails from shoeing. The added, unexpected bonus is the incredible quality of his coat. His coat absolutely glistens in the sunshine!

"Toby hasn't been without pain since his injury a couple of years ago, today he seems to be pain free"


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.
