Dog Hip Dysplasia

Degenerative Myelopathy in German Shepherds

Over the last 14 years, I have had the privilege to care for and treat over 30 canine police officers at my practice.  These amazing animals are true athletes.  They train multiple days a week and are on the road the rest of the time doing article searches, tracking lost people, tracking violent offenders and protecting their handlers and other officers.  These beautiful animals do this for nothing more than a bowl of food and their favorite toy.

These dogs train like Olympic athletes and endure a lifetime of wear and tear on their bodies that most people don’t realize.  Almost all of my canine officers are on NatrixOne for multiple reasons.  It helps muscle recovery, it is a great anti-inflammatory for those joints and ligaments, and it helps keep their coats thick and lust and decrease their risk of skin diseases.  I have all of my retired canines on NatrixOne to help with the pains that come with a life-time of service.  A lot of our canine officers are German Shepherd dogs and we also use the NatrixOne to decrease the chances they develop Degenerative Myelopathy, a debilitating neurological condition in GSDs.

If I trust NatrixOne with these expensive and valuable members of society, why wouldn’t it be the perfect supplement for your best friend.

Keep them healthy and pain free while helping the environment!
