Niki - The Wonder Dog
Reason For Use: Treatment of Arthritis
Breed: Fox Terrier
Age: 7 years
Owner: Michael, SA
Niki's around 7 years old now - and like many of her breed she loves to run. She'd break into what we call the "crazy run" regularly, running around in a large circle as fast as she could for no apparent reason, just for the joy of it.
Unfortunately, a month or so ago, she started holding up one of her hind legs a great deal, hopping around for most of the time on three legs. Even when the leg was down, we could see she was feeling some pain. After taking her to the vet, it seems it's arthritis - the flare up coincided with the cold weather.
The vet gave me a prescription for some anti-inflammatories and some information about managing the condition. It was very sad as it likely meant the end of our 5 mile walks while out in the boonies. It made me realize just how quickly the 7 years had passed and that Niki was now, like me (eeek!) middle aged.
Anyhow, among all the information the vet provided was a leaflet on a product called "Sashas Blend", it contains 100% all natural marine concentrates and works at the site of joint problems by treating the illness rather than the symptoms. Only a small amount is used daily, so it lasts for ages. We decided to give it a whirl; after all, Niki is a treasured companion.
We started her on Sashas Blend and within a week, she had stopped holding her leg up, pretty much lost the limp entirely and was running around like always, even though it was still very cold; which should have caused her problems. Additionally, she seemed so much happier. I was concerned that the day after her burst of energy, she'd really feel it; but the next day she was fine. It's great that this product isn't a mishmash of laboratory produced pharmaceuticals, but totally natural.
I also noticed the company is currently working on a Green Policy to minimize their carbon footprint throughout all aspects of their operations. It's great to see so many companies starting to think a little more about the environment.
