I have tried other supplements and my GSD absolutely dislikes it. She even goes as far as spitting it out when I try to mix it with her food. With Pebble Natural's Frolic, she thinks its a treat. I will definitely purchase and recommend to others should anyone asks.
I am always skeptical of supplements actually making a difference in humans and especially pets, but decided to give these a shot. We have a midlife 3-legged dog and he's missing a front leg, which is especially difficult for a 60lb muscle dog. Since adding Frolic supplements to his diet, he's taking less breaks during walks and is actually SPRINTING in short bursts during our walks, which is a huge step up from his previous limping. I truly think these are making a big difference. Plus: so easy! The dog is happy to get this supplement as a treat. No need to mix it into food. We are sold.
Our dog loves Frolic as a treat. Which is great since we give it to him for his hips which is typical of breed. He loves it, we love it.
We have been using this for our Old English sheepdog since we adopted her in November. We have heard such good reviews about this product and we are so optimistic about the future results of taking care of our Daisy's joints for the rest of her life.
My 10 month old Aussie LOVES these. She is so excited to have her vitamin every morning and will stop everything she’s doing when I say vitamin. We recently started my 11 year old German Shepherd on the joint supplements as well and he loves them just as much. We’ve noticed him moving around a lot better as well!
DEGENERATIVE JOINT DISEASE: A GUIDE TO JOINT HEALTH IN DOGS AND CATS
Recognizing and treating degenerative joint disease (DJD) in pets is essential to keeping our companions comfortable and active as they age. One of the most common causes of pain in animals, DJD is due to chronic wear and tear on the joints resulting in loss of the joint’s protective cartilage “cushion”. There are a number of causes that can contribute to DJD -- including trauma, genetics, conformation and nutrition -- and successful treatment likewise requires more than one approach.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY DOG HAS DJD?
With their natural exuberance and eagerness to please, it can be difficult to recognize when a pet is in pain. DJD is often subtle, with owners first noticing that their pet just seems to be “slowing down”. Specific signs to watch for include:
- Increased difficulty getting up or laying down
- Limping, especially just after getting up
- Reluctance to jump up or down from previously well-loved furniture
- Less enthusiasm for play sessions, walks or games of fetch
- Irritability in a previously good-natured animal
Once DJD is suspected, there are a number of steps you can take to help protect your pet’s joints and ensure as many happy years of pain-free mobility together.
High quality joint supplements containing glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate and MSM are one of the first lines of defense against emerging DJD. With ingredients that help to protect and rebuild cartilage, supplements such as Frolic help ensure your dog’s body has the building blocks it needs to maintain optimal joint health.
No one enjoys a diet, but one of the best things you can do for your arthritic pet is to help them achieve their optimal weight. Extra pounds mean extra stress on joints, and shedding even a little extra weight can make your pet feel years younger.
When supplements are not enough, your veterinarian will likely recommend adding a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) or other pain medication to your pet’s treatment regimen. These can either be used as needed or on a daily basis, depending on your pet’s degree of discomfort.
EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL THERAPY
Moderate, low-impact exercise can help maintain range of motion and prevent loss of muscle mass in the arthritic pet. In addition to traditional leash walks, some exercises that may be particularly beneficial include:
- Walking over uneven terrain like sand, gravel or cushions
- Repeated sit-to-stands to help build core strength
- Helping your pet balance on 3 legs in order to build muscle in limbs they may be favoring
During all exercise, remember to follow your pet’s lead. If they show signs of fatigue or distress, it’s time for a rest.
Alternative medicine is no longer just for people. Acupuncture and laser therapy are increasingly available at vet clinics and pet rehabilitation centers, and can be an excellent addition to your pet’s healthcare regimen.
