I noticed my senior schnauzer, adopted from Muttville, starting to get stiff. He hated the joint supplements he was on previously and would pick them out of his food. Since starting on Frolic, he now spends many hours each day playing with my other 2 year old schnauzer and running around. He also has a new found interest in toys as well and can be found playing tug-of-war often. Most importantly, he loves the taste of the supplement and has no problem eating it plain or in his food. He seems much less stiff now and I imagine with more time, this will continue to improve. I highly recommend this product. It also came in beautiful packaging and we received a handwritten note.
My dogs love the Frolic chewables. I’m excited to see the long term effects! We love supporting senior shelters!
I am so thankful to Pebbles Natural for a product that is affordable, works and is something that our incredibly picky dog will eat. Waggles knows a pill when he senses one and would spit out everything we tried to disguise. We tried everything from sandwich meat, peanut butter, pill pockets and even crushing his pills into his food: this dog will NOT be fooled. Short of force feeding him, we were exhausting our options and due to his age and concern about his arthritic legs, we were losing hope. Pebbles Natural has a great formula and it goes to a wonderful cause. We love that Waggles benefits and also we can pay it forward to help more mature (older) rescues like him find forever homes.
I purchased Frolic for my very active husky/pit mix, who will turn 8 in a month, because he wasn't doing as much, well, frolicking on the beach as he used to. My vet suggested putting him on anti-inflammatories as one option, but I didn't feel like we were ready for that. I proposed this instead, and she thought it would be a great first step. The last couple of times Juneau has been off-leash, he tore around like an adolescent and took flying leaps over other dogs. I'm really excited about the shift and the fact that we can clearly hold off on the meds. Also, despite being a picky eater, Juneau gobbles the Pebble pills right up.
With 10 dogs it's hard to find an affordable joint supplement that works. Two weeks into using Frolic my seniors are already more comfortable. I'll be keeping them on this product !
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.
