In the summer of 2016, after ‘blowing’ both knees, Rosie underwent bilateral TPLO surgery.
(MedVet – Karl Maritato,DVM, DACVSSA)
She recovered quickly and life went on.
As time progressed, she would ‘complain’ a bit after walking. We would and treat with Tramadol initially (two to three days) accompanied with rest for 10-14 days.
Throughout this time and pre-dating her surgery, feeding was supplemented with glucosamine/chondroitin and turmeric.
Eventually, we recognized that the pain was originating from the front legs. I learned from her vet (Joe D’Amico,DVM) that this is a positional adjustment associated with the hind leg surgeries. To compensate for the modification in the hind legs, Rosie was now lifting up (from rest and squatting,) bearing a greater percentage of her weight on the front legs. Makes sense, right?
For the past few months I had been limiting the distance on her walks.
After meeting Lara and learning about her association with NatrixOne and your canine product she graciously provided us with a sample. We started NatrixOne on August 1, 2019, to coincide with a time when I would be able to dedicate more time to Rosie’s walk program. We began with mile walks on 8/2 and continued to increase distance every day, returning to a 2 mile walk by 8/7.
The results are stunning. There has not been one single complaint (yelp) following exercise since starting the Natrix One. This ‘Liquid Gold’ has changed life for both of us. I have my energetic, engaged, paw stomping, run into her ‘walking collar’ girl back. If I hadn’t experienced this behavior change myself I’m not sure I would believe it.
