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 started Blaze on Rose-Hip Vital as a preventative supplement to keep his joints in best shape. I was not expecting it to do so much more! I have seen improvements in his confidence under saddle when jumping and his movements/suppleness have improved extremely. After a long ride there has been less heat in his tendon and his coat is gleaming. His overall health and performance has improved since starting Rose-Hip so there’s no going back now! Thank you to the team at Rose-Hip Vital for your amazing product.

We started using Rose-Hip Vital for our two youngish horses (7 & 9yrs) as we want them healthy for ever. Didn’t do a before as they are both young and sound but……. We take care of an older quarter horse lady who’s quite rickety and stiff due to confirmation and old injuries. We weren’t going to give her the Rose-Hip Vital just due to cost (I know that sounds horrible but money’s tight for everyone these days) but of course we eventually started her on it as we felt so mean! I Sooo wish we had taken a before because the difference in her is remarkable, absolutely amazing. She can now turn and bend, she can pick her feet up for the farrier (previously she’d just tip her toe for him). She can trot, it’s beautiful to watch. Makes us so happy everyday when we see her feeling so fresh :) We may have eventually drifted away from using Rose-Hip Vital just through life getting busy and it being such a long range additive for our two but seeing what it’s done for the old girl, we’re hooked! We will be feeding Rose-Hip Vital without fail from now and always. Thank you for your amazing product!

Penny has always been a bit hard to get going. She is a lovely horse, but due to her age, she would probably have preferred to just be in her paddock and eat grass.


After giving Penny Rose-Hip Vital for the last 6 weeks, she shows so much more interest in moving forwards. She is more alert, seems a lot fresher and we even completed our first Western Dressage test together. There will be definitely more Horse Shows to go to in the near future. Penny's age does not longer seem to be an issue. I'm very happy with my mature lovely mare.

Tex was diagnosed with arthritis of his near side knee and he would often be slightly lame after riding. He had developed little bumps on his knee and fetlock joints over a period of twelve months. Since using Rose-Hip Vital, Tex is no longer lame and is moving more freely. He was always a good boy but now I can certainly see a much happier and healthier horse. Apart from helping his joints, it has also benefited his coat and overall well being. I would certainly recommend Rose-Hip Vital.
