"She is so much happier, brighter and active than she has been for a long time"
My wife, Sue, and I are rapt with the improvement Rose Hip Vital Canine has made to our dear Millie. The attached picture is of her sunbathing in her favourite spot in the flower bed. Millie is 13 years old and for the past few years has been racked with the pain of joint issues which had been steadily getting worse despite regular Pentosan injections, anti-inflammatory medications, etc.
We'd been bracing ourselves for the inevitability of having to euthanize Millie sometime in the very near future so that she wouldn't have to suffer the pain any longer. It was a thought process that was as distressing as when we almost lost her to a Brown snake bite about 6 years ago when (according to our vet) she was literally a couple minutes away from succumbing to the venom by the time I got her to him.
But back to RHV Canine, which I think is absolutely wonderful!! After about 10 days of taking RHVC it was quite evident that Millie's discomfort from joint issues had decreased very dramatically. She could once again get up from her bed and walk off without first needing to stretch for a couple of minutes before she could limp to where she wanted to go.
Three weeks further on now and Millie is her old self again. She is once again taking a keen interest in, and getting enjoyment from, the world around her that is our 9 ha property. However, chasing rabbits is now beyond her as her eyesight and reflexes are not what they used to be, not that it stops her from trying !! It is truly heart-warming and a joy to see her revelling in the pleasure she is again able to derive from being able to move about freely without the pain that had just about crippled her for so long.
She is so much happier, brighter and active than she has been for a long time. Almost to the point of being a real nuisance when she now excitedly insists to be let out to go after a rabbit, Crow or Magpie in the back yard, not that she has a ghost of a chance of catching any of them these days. Millie's mother Jazz (15-1/2 years old) and her brother Calvin (12 years old) are both also on RHVC. They also have much improved mobility, although their problems were nowhere as severe as Millie's.
