Marley has experienced her share of joint support and arthritis issues. The year before I began working at Only Natural Pet, she had arthrodesis surgery to fuse her back leg to relieve severe arthritis and joint pain. I had no idea at the time that there were so many natural options and instead spent hundreds of dollars on pharmaceuticals, which didn’t help much with the pain or sedated her so much, she wasn’t her playful self. Currently, she is one of the primary testers at ONP of all things joint-related. If it passes Marley’s paw of approval, we bring it in. She has tried everything. And everything works well.
What works the best for Marley is In Clover’s Connectin for Dogs and Cats. Marley is about 8 1/2 years old and before working here, she was often in pain. She was sore after getting up in the mornings and limped desperately after even the most minor walks (which for a lab is still a fairly hyper affair). Her ability and behavior have changed so dramatically now that she takes Connectin, it’s like she’s a puppy again. I used to feel so badly watching her deal with the pain of exercise, I stopped bringing her. Now she accompanies me on every walk, hike or run!
