What a change in my dog's mobility!
I have a 10-year-old poodle mix who was going downhill physically. She could no longer jump onto the bed or my lap. She used a dog step to get up to the bed. The 3 steps to go outside were a growing challenge. She started each daily walk limping on a back hind leg and became a 3-legged walker before we got home, Sometimes I would just carry her back.
After reading reviews, I decided to try the chews, because the vet said she was still a healthy little dog. The chew is her bedtime treat, and within a week she began jumping up on my lap, no longer limps, and walks on 4 legs happily. I'm so happy to see her moving again without hesitation.
My dogs think there a treat!
Great savings ordering them here instead of through their vet. My dogs love taking them and think they're getting a snack when they see me pull out the container. The supplement seems to work well because they move around with so much ease since starting with them. Overall, they work so well that I would continue ordering them from their vet if they didn't sell them here.
This product is wonderful
My miniature Doxie has arthritis in both back hips, she has been taking the Synovi G4 for two years and what a difference. She has no problems with her hips at all. I do give 1/2 chewy everyday.
I have a 12 year old shepherd/rott mix who started having trouble getting up. After being on this for a week I noticed an improvement. After two weeks, he was jumping up like he was a puppy again! He loves taking the chewables too. He thinks they're treats.
My older chow is finicky & he loves the flavor & the fact they are soft. My lab also takes them and has shown much improvement on her hips.
I was wondering if there was a minimum age for this product. I have a 100# 7 month old english mastiff and would love to start him on this now, but did't know if you had a certain age requirement because of the ingredients and his developing system.
My 10-yr-old poodle mix has issues with wheat as well (chews her paws). I chose to give her a reduced dose of the chew (by her weight) and so far, so good with the wheat issues. I would like to know if there is an alternative without wheat, also, but for now, the chew is working for us.
