Pebble is a great company. I first was introduced to them when I adopted my senior dog and Pebble had donated an entire set of supplements that accompanied his adoption (Frolic, Shine, and Flora). All three of these products are great and my dog will eat all of them without complaint (and he's kind of picky!) Packaging is beautiful--extremely high quality and feels boutique. I genuinely think they've helped my arthritic dog get some more pep in his step. I just wish they sold it in brick and motor stores so I could also reduce impacts on the environment of shipping and because it's a little pricey (I live close to the company). Even with shipping costs though it is far cheaper than all competitors so in the end I will return to buying Pebble and recommending it to my friends.
The founders also personally reply to any questions you have. You can tell they really care about their company, their customers, and giving back to animal rescues. 5 stars!
It’s a wonderful product sold at a great price. I like that it’s made in the USA. My dog apparently likes the flavor and chews them eagerly.
Much more reasonably priced than other joint relief tablets
Frolic has kept our eleven year old dachshund limber and still able to jump up to the couch.
Our bernese mountain dog gobbles up these vitamins before his food each and everytime. He will sometimes leave his food unattended for hours, but the Frolic lasts seconds. Given his size (120lb), good joint health matters
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.
