Joint Health for Dogs – Jack’s Moving Story

Inspiring Pet Tails 2 min read
Supporting joint health for dogs is a crucial way to support your furkiddos overall quality of life. When Jack was dealing with joint issues, his vet prescribed medication that could potentially harm his liver in the long run. His furmom decided to offer her boy some natural support to help him while he underwent his treatment and we couldn't be more thankful to her for trusting us with the health and wellness of her precious boy!

Joint health for dogs should be a top priority for pet parents, especially those with senior furkiddos. As our sweethearts age, it’s totally normal to see them slowing down and requiring a little more care, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! Jack’s moving story is a great example of how an integrative approach with vet-prescribed medication and natural supplements can help make sure of that.

Integrative Support for Jack’s Mobility

Like many senior pups, Jack was dealing with a joint issue that was causing a lot of discomfort. To help with his symtpoms, Jack’s veterinarian prescribed traditional medication. After hearing that long-term use of pharmaceuticals could affect his liver, Jack’s pet parent, Chantal, got to work at finding a natural liver support while he underwent his treatment.

A few months ago my Maltese, Jack (11), began limping again. He has this reoccurring injury/arthritis and the vet prescribed him two types of pain relievers and anti-inflammatories that have in the past worked, but this time it went on for weeks. Took him to the vet was prescribed an additional pain reliever and told he may also need blood work in the future because it could possibly cause some liver issues. Not exactly what I wanted to hear, fixing one problem but putting him at risk for something else.

To help protect Jack’s liver from these undesirable side effects, his mama started giving NHV Milk Thistle extract. Milk Thistle contains incredible properties that can help to promote liver and kidney health and encourage regeneration of the liver by naturally stimulating the growth of new liver cells. As an added bonus, Milk Thistle contains antioxidant properties and may benefit as anti-cancer support, too!

NHV supplements, like our Milk Thistle extract, are completely safe to be used alongside vet-prescribed medications as additional support. We recommend keeping a window of about 30 minutes to, ideally, 2 hours between them to avoid any interaction.

It gives me a peace of mind knowing if I do have to give him his medication every once in a while, that his liver is supported and helping with his liver regeneration. NHV supplement cocktails for the win!

Old Timer for Joint Health for Dogs

Pets dealing with mobility issues like Jack can start to exhibit symptoms like difficulty getting up and down, stiff walking, lameness, exercise reluctance, limping, unusual weight gain, and even appetite loss. That is where our main mobility support formula, NHV Old Timer comes in.

The powerful yet gentle herbs found in our Old Timer blend can help to support joint health for dogs, reduce inflammation, and relieve discomfort. Since using both Milk Thistle and Old Timer, Jack is no longer showing signs of arthritis and joint discomfort.

NHV is the whole reason he’s not limping anymore. With meds alone zero improvement, zero. A few weeks in with supplementing Milk Thistle and Old Timer, and he slowly returned back to his old self. I can’t thank you guys enough for creating products that actually help and are safe to use long term!

We’re absolutely thrilled to know that Jack is in such great hands and we’re sending all our love and well wishes their furmily’s way.
