TESTIMONIAL

Hi Team,

Untitled

Thank you so much for developing this fantastic product. My friend nobly gave me one bottle of her dog’s tablets and was effusive in her praise, so I thought why not?

My dog suffers from arthritis and had been in pain for some time. After a month on the tablets her mobility was much improved.

After two months she is a different dog – energetic again and keen to go for a run instead of a creaky, uncomfortable, very short walk.

Video attached as proof!

Thanks again.

Kind regards,

Penny

Why Play Is So Important For Your Older Dog…

Part 2: Why Play Is So Important For Your Older Dog!

When our old cocker spaniel, Cotton, got old, I noticed that he was less interested in his old toys and the games he used to love to play.  You may have noticed this with your old dog as well.  But you know what, if I got down on the floor with an old favorite toy and started up one of his favorite games, like tug of war, he was all of a sudden back to being a puppy!  He seemed energized and ready to play…and had a happy look on his face.

I think that sometimes we, as owners, are the ones to blame for them not playing.  They don’t initiate it, so we assume they aren’t interested.  But half the fun is having you involved in the play and your attention, especially if you are down on their level.

Studies have shown that dogs that don’t engage in a lot of play suffer from behavioral issues such as anxiety or aggression.  Less playtime can also lead to an increase in whining, jumping up, and not coming when called. Read More…

Dogs with Arthritis – Hydrotherapy

 

Dogs that are crippled with arthritis end up sitting or lying most of the time, not exercising. The result is weight gain and immobility. This exacerbates their condition, worsening the pain of arthritis.

Exercise and a healthy diet with the proper nutrients are keys to managing arthritis. While you can monitor what they eat, it’s not easy to make a hurting dog get up and moving. If the arthritis is severe, a great option to consider is hydrotherapy.
Hydrotherapy puts your dog in a water tank with a treadmill below them. The hydrotherapy technician can monitor your dog and adjust the tank conditions to give them the optimum amount of exercise to build up their muscles.
