"The difference in our elderly pony is amazing"
We got Mia a couple of years ago as a companion for our elderly pony who suffers from laminitis and has to be kept separated from our other horses in a paddock with limited grass. We didn’t know much about Mia’s background apart from the fact that she was also elderly. Ever since we got her she struggled with her mobility. We assumed like our other pony that it was due to laminitis and gave her the appropriate supplements and medication to treat that. Unlike our other pony she just wasn’t responding to the treatment for laminitis. We had her on a low sugar/starch diet, Founderguard and Bute which weren't working. We noticed that her stiffness seemed to be worse in the morning and cold weather so got an equine body worker to do an assessment on her. She confirmed that Mia had arthritis in her right hip.
We had been using Rose-Hip Vital for a couple of years on our 25 year old horse and 15 year old dog after seeing a testimonial for it on Facebook. They had both had great results with Rose-Hip Vital so we decided to try it with Mia. Within two weeks she was walking much better and within six weeks she was walking normally. Now after 10 weeks she is trotting around the paddock. The difference in our elderly pony is amazing. She is no longer on any treatment or medication for laminitis. Rose-Hip Vital has worked so well for Mia we’ve also put our other elderly pony, Cupcake, on it and have noticed a huge improvement in her mobility also.
