Hi. Does anyone know of anything natural that I can give my dog to help her arthritis? I want something that's very effective but I don't want to do meds through the vet. Thanks!:)
Just wanted to share with you about a great product I have had my old dog on for the last 12 months. He is a 16 year old cattle dog, and was really starting to have problems.
Then I found Synoflex 1500 and the difference was and still is remarkable. He showed signs of improvement within 2 weeks of starting.
My sister also put her Australian Silky Terrier onto it, and had the same amazing results. We tell everyone about this product. ( I should be on commission I think!)
Anyway, I am not sure where you are, as it comes from America. But I have found a supplier in South Australia. He posts it express post. A bottle costs me $40 delivered, and it lasts him about 5 weeks.
You can order by calling George on 08 9842 1974.
I hope you try it, as I know your dog will thank you for it.
I recently started giving my dog "Joint Mobility". I haven't noticed a big difference yet but it has only been a couple of weeks since I started him on it. Also, there are many natural anti-inflammatories like tumeric and aloe vera.
I'm new here, so just seeing your post. How is your dog doing? My dog had started limping, but that went away when we started him on doggie vitamins! They are powered by the same scientific formula this company uses in their people vitamins. Happy to share more info if needed. Hope all is well.
If you're looking for something natural, most joint supplements use substances that naturally occur in a healthy dog's joints - like Glucosamine. You can also increase your pet's Vitamin C intake. Vitamin C has been shown to help treat arthritis and is a natural anti-inflammatory.
Glucosamine, a common supplement, is naturally found in shellfish and in high concentrations in you and your pet's joints. Glucosamine has been shown safe time and time again to supplement your dog with amazing effectiveness in treating arthritis. Afterall, your pet's joints naturally have Glucosamine, but as your pet ages and the joints become damaged they need more Glucosamine to repair them (in the arthritic dog the joints are falling apart faster than they're being repaired).
Wikiie mentioned using Synflex and has experienced remarkable results - Synflex is a liquid form of Glucosamine. Glucosamine is not a 'medication' but a natural, nutraceutical. You can get it in pill form, liquid form, or buy treats/dog food that has been supplemented with it (usually using shellfish as their source). Glucosamine has been most effective when used with Chondroitin. When used together, joint cartilage is rebuilt, synovial fluid is restored (keeps the joints lubricated), and inflammation subsides - naturally relieving the pain and discomfort associated with this common condition. These can be used long-term and all have less side effects than Buffered Aspirin, which only temporarily takes away the pain.
Hope this helps.
One of my Shih Tsu's at 11 yrs old stopped going up stairs, was not interested in taking walks - my breeder told me to start him on Glucosamine Plus for Pets, minimum of 1000 mg per capsule. The product also includes Sea Cucumber and Shark Cartilage. She said it would take about 4 to 6 weeks to see any effects. The difference was amazing and became increasingly more limber around the 3rd month on this dietary supplement. He is now doing stairs with ease, jumping onto his favorite chair and taking walks. I have now started my 7 year old on same. Dosage is recommended by weight of dog. Give it a try, be patient and good luck.
