Teddy was diagnosed with inoperable arthritis in his elbow at about 8 months of age. He would limp following even moderate exercise and at two years had a bout of arthritis that left him unable to even walk a block. His vet recommended that he be placed on Rimadyl daily with increased dosages as needed when he limped. This necessitated regular blood tests to monitor the health of his liver.
Three years ago, we were given a free sample of System Saver by Dr. Schwabe with additional recommendation for adding fish oil to his diet and continuing the use of glucosamine/chrondroitan. We are happy to report that since beginning this regimen we have not needed to use Rimadyl, we have cut his glucosamine/chrondroitan dosage in half, we continue with 2 capsules of System Saver daily and his fish oil and Teddy has not limped for those three years. He hikes on trails 4 - 5 miles daily, he swims up to 3 1/2 miles a day in the summer and is as playful and full of energy at five years of age as he was as a puppy. We are no longer having to test for his liver function and are delighted by the results we have seen. It is safe to say, that without the System Saver, Teddy’s outcome would not have been as good and should the arthritis affect him in later years, our options would have been really limited because he would have already have been on the optimum prescription medication currently available for arthritic dogs. With System Saver, Teddy has been given the chance to have a healthy, active, fun-loving life.
Thanks so much!!!!!!!
