NHV Remedies Help Ike On His Road To Recovery Inspiring Pet Tails 3 min read
*”Ike is a 100% Raw fed Yellow Lab who had TPLO surgery 3yrs ago. I wanted to add supplements to his diet that would help reduce his need for Nsaid medication. I worked long distance with Dr. Donna M. Raditic, D.V.M, C.V.A U of Tenn. to develop a diet that worked best for Ike’s needs. Dr R highly recommended NHV supplements. I started with the Detox formula followed by Milk Thistle to cleanse Ike liver from any damage from all meds following his surgery. with a lengthy recoup time. I introduced STIMMUNE to boost his immune system since Ike seems to have a sensitivity to Gluten. Currently we are alternating between TURMERIC & OLD TIMER to assist his joints. When he over does it-(Ike was a Greyhound in his former life-) I add YUCCA into his daily supplements. I see a big difference in his recovery rate. I prefer the ease of adding a liquid herbal that is easy to dose and is well tolerated by my Lab. I’m particular about the supplements I use and I’m pleased that NHV products maintain high standards . I’m so happy that I was referred to NHV. Ike is now 6 and I expect will have many more years of running through the woods. I plan on continuing with NHV products for life.

Thank you Kathy for sharing Ike’s story with us! We’re so glad we are able to help this beautiful boy in any way we can :-).
TPLO surgery stands for tibial-plateau-leveling osteotomy. This is one of the most common orthopaedic surgeries, which are performed on dogs who have torn their cranial cruciate ligament (dog’s acl). The recovery period of this surgery is extremely important for your dog. Continuing physical therapy and veterinarian recommended exercises are critical during this time (be sure that the exercises are recommended by your medical professional). Be sure to support their overall immunity, health and healing with diet and supplementation.
