Duke is his old self again, happy, and active!
Reviewed in the United States on September 1, 2016
I have a Sussex Spaniel/Chocolate Lab mix, named Duke. He is the seeetest dog who ever lived and who ever will live (although admittedly, I am biased). He just turned twelve this year, and I have been afraid he may develop the notorious Lab hip problems, so I have always kept a close eye on him.
About 3 months ago, Duke started having problems with stairs. When we would go upstairs to bed, Duke would pace back and forth, hesitate at the bottom of the steps and whine before finally coming up the stairs; he was in pain. It broke my heart. Some nights he stayed downstairs, and I know he didn't like being away from us. He also started sleeping on the bathroom tile during the day, I think the cold felt good on his sore joints. After about a month of this behavior, I realized it was not just a pulled myscle or something temporary, so I started researching supplements. Enter this product.
The directions say to give the dog 2 pills a day for the first months, and then go down to 1 pill a day after that as a maintenance dose. That means this one bottle will last Duke 4 months, which is very convenient for us and our wallets (although I would gladly spend any amount of money to make my Big Brown Boy feel better).
It has been 3 and a half weeks since starting this supplement. Duke is a whole new dog. He is active, jumping up and down, and even westling with Chunk, his 5 year-old Yorkipoo brother.
I can actually see it in Duke's face that he feels better. He is happier. He has a sparkle in his eye that you usually see in much younger dogs. My Big Brown Boy has become my Big Brown Bouncing Boy, and I am so happy that he is probanly going to be feeling better a lot further into old age than I previously thought possible, all because of this supplement that has absolutely changed his (and our) lives.
Now, Duke goes up the stairs for bed with ease, and we are confident that his golden years will have a much better quality of life.
