Although surgery wasn't an option for her, we have maintained her condition by keeping her weight on the lower side and making sure she gets regular exercise without over doing it.
Having just turned seven years old a few months ago we have noticed that she is moving a little slower, whether she's getting up after a nap or climbing the stairs - she definitely does so at a slower pace.
Last month we were given the chance to try out a hip and joint supplement for Maggie and we thought this would be a great time to offer her a natural supplement and see if we notice a change.

For the past 30 days, we have been giving Maggie the Nutri-Vet Hip & Joint Chewable Tablets. We give her one with her morning meal and one with her dinner meal. She loves the liver flavor chewables so much that she thinks they are a treat just for her and will even do tricks for one. I love how easy they are to give her, no pills to try and stick down her throat or hide in a treat. Sophisticated formulas combined with innovative delivery systems and high palatability profiles have positioned Nutri-Vet as the leading provider of natural animal products in North America.
These chewable tablets are regular strength which provide 500mg of glucosamine, 100mg chondroitin and vitamin C and 10mg MSM to help maintain healthy canine joint function and connective tissue.
Ingredients That Help Maintain Healthy Hips & JointsGlucosamine HCL is the key building block for making cartilage. Recent reports in veterinary journals have validated the benefits of glucosamine in maintaining joint health and supporting mobility and activity in dogs of all ages.
Chondroitin Sulfate protects existing cartilage and slows its break down.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is important for the formation of bone and cartilage.
Manganese, Copper and Zinc are essential in biochemical reactions that help form cartilage.
Maggie's ResultsJust in the past week I have noticed Maggie going up the stairs more freely, usually she would pause half way up before reaching the top. She loves following me downstairs to do laundry and such so this is a huge plus!
I believe in treating ailments and maintaining my dog's health as naturally as possible and I'm so happy I can do that with Nutri-Vet, my only regret is that I didn't start her on this supplement when she was younger.
