"While I realise it is not the fountain of youth, for us it really did turn back the doggy clock"
In August 2006 my husband & I welcomed, what we joke as our first born, which came in the form of an English Bull Terrier named Hal. He was followed 3 years later by our first son Finn and then 2 years after that by our second son Van. He is loved just as much by our boys as by my husband & I.
What can I say, he is part of our family. Hal had some previous problems with his skin & while on holidays at Christmas last year he was prescribed antibiotics & then again when it flared up a couple of months later and while on both occasions it cleared up there always seemed to be a couple of residual lumps that never went away.
About 4 months ago, we had to purchase Hal a new bed as we had always had a raised frame bed but because of the stiffness in his leg we noticed that he was starting to struggle to get out of it and one morning my husband discovered Hal had obviously been unable to get up in time and had defecated all in his bed. So we purchased him a new bed which is a huge pillow type bed and while it is a lot better he still struggled to get up. So as the weeks went on we noticed Hal struggling to get up and down the back stairs and he did actually fall down them on one occasion.
We then noticed the joints in his front legs extremely swollen & while I had been putting cold packs on them because of the heat that week, my husband & I thought it time to talk to our boys about, the fact that Hal was getting older and that he wasn't going to be with us forever, as they too had started to notice Hal not being himself. Not the conversation that you ever want to have with a 7 year old & nearly 5 year old & as it was Van's birthday party the next week we decided to wait till then & make a decision after this.
It was at Van's 5th Birthday party that a lot of the parents commented on how stiff Hal was in his legs & that he was just laying around, we had commented to many of them that we thought that the time maybe coming when a decision may need to be made & that we were waiting till after Van's party to take him to the vet to see what our options were. It was at this time that Emma Hughes, said that she had an all natural product for us to try before we made any drastic decisions. So with the view that we had nothing to lose and everything to gain, we started him that night, within a couple of days I could see a difference, but my husband thought I was just seeing what I wanted to see.
By the end of that week, my sceptic, husband was the one saying to me, about what a difference he could see. About 2 weeks into the treatment, one of the mum's who had attended the party called in, and saw Hal chasing the boys around the front yard and barking and generally playing with them. She was in complete amazement and couldn't believe that he was the same dog. By week 3 the huge swelling in his joint have reduced significantly, the residual skin adhesion/lumps have gone and he has his shiny black coat back.
So for me Rose-Hip Vital Canine really is a life saver. While I realise it is not the fountain of youth, for us it really did turn back the doggy clock. So thank you again, while I had the view of nothing to lose everything to gain, because of you we really did gain everything, we gained our beautiful, playful & very vocal Hal back & while he is 10 years of age, we aren't telling him any time soon! Thank you again.
