"I'm so happy Rose-Hip Vital Canine is available to give a helping hand to all dogs, young and old!"
I got my therapy dog ‘Johnny' 11 years ago when I was 9 years old. He was and is the best thing that's ever happened to me and I couldn't wait to get up every morning to see his gorgeous face, and these days I still look forward to it just as much! One day last year, I called Johnny to get up on my bed for a cuddle. He was so enthusiastic as always as he trotted towards the bed and popped his front paws onto it, waited there for a moment and struggled lifting back legs high enough onto the bed.
It was then when I realised time was catching up to my loving companion and he isn't as young as he used to be. Whenever somebody asks Johnny's age and we tell them 12 years old they don't believe us! He looks so healthy and young for his age. We have seen 9 year old Golden Retrievers who look older than Johnny.
We thought as he aged, it would only benefit him to be on Rose-Hip Vital Canine and we were right! Now at 12 years old, Johnny has no problem getting up from laying down, he has more energy and moves freely, and he can even get up on the bed! I'm so happy Rose-Hip Vital Canine is available to give a helping hand to all dogs, young and old! He may not have much hearing left but at least now he can be comfortable on his legs!
