Today I have invited my sister Katie to my blog for an interview. A while back I was contacted by NuVet® and asked if I would be interested in reviewing their product NuVet Plus®. Bailie and I haven’t been taking a joint supplement, but we have thought about it. Normally, we are focused on Katie who is suffering from Osteoarthritis. I emailed the company and let them know I would be interested in trying NuVet Plus® and also let them know about Katie and her arthritis issues as I saw while reading through their website they had supplements for arthritis. NuVet was very helpful in offering information on their program and also sent along their newest product NuJoint Double-Strength (DS) for Katie.
Emma: Katie, thank you for agreeing to come on my blog to talk about your arthritis issues and how NuVet products have worked for you. I will make sure you get an extra snack for your trouble! Things with your front left leg sure took a turn for the worse late last October, didn’t they?
Katie: Yes, I was in pretty sad shape. I have tried so many supplements and drugs and nothing has really worked. The last supplements were awesome but after only a few months, they stopped working. As some people said to Mom, I was in the worst shape I have ever been in. I did not want to walk much at all, heavens, I could barely get up! The cold winter was not to blame as my flare up started prior to our Florida trip and you may recall I didn’t even want to walk much in Florida. Here at home I did not even go into the backyard for a couple months, I just stayed on the deck. My front leg was so painful to walk on.
Emma: Tell me how this NuJoint DS works for you. Bailie and I are taking the NuVet Plus® daily but we haven’t noticed a difference and probably won’t since we are young and healthy. We will continue taking them to stay healthy, though. You are taking the NuVet® and NuJoint DS. That is four wafers a day for your weight, are they easy to take?
Katie: These wafers are so tasty – chicken flavor! You know me, I don’t take anything that may be medicine, but I could eat the whole bottle they are so good! I need four wafers a day, one NuVet Plus® and three NuJoint DS. Mom bought this handy dandy pill box thing so we don’t forget and they are all sorted for me. It has really been amazing taking these all natural supplements. What I really like is that they repair damage, and don’t just cover up pain! Within just two weeks I wanted to go walking with you and Bailie again and it was still below zero outside. I started to venture into the snow in the backyard, and now after about seven weeks, I am racing and playing. I am not a puppy, so if I do a lot one day, I rest up the next, but I am able to enjoy myself and my limp isn’t very bad at all!
Emma: So are you pleased with NuJoint DS, has it helped you? Would you recommend it for other dogs?
Katie: I would definitely recommend NuVet® products! You know as you get older, when you fix one problem another crops up. When my arthritis was so bad, I stopped dragging my back left paw because of the way I had to limp around. Now, I am not limping much, but I have started dragging my back paw again. Mom and I agree, that the dragging problem is no where near as bad as the pain and limping I had for several months. Right now I feel like these products are a miracle for me! I am hoping that if I continue taking the NuVet Plus® and NuJoint DS my rear joints may feel better and the dragging may lessen. I had Mom place an order for more wafers so I can continue my joint repair.
Emma: Would you tell me a bit about NuVet®?
Katie: NuVet Labs® has spent over eight years to create a product designed to attack the causes of disease instead of just covering up the symptoms. They put together a team of top scientific, medical and pet industry professionals to find real solutions to an ever growing pet health dilemma. NuVet® products are made in a FDA registered laboratory with natural, human-grade ingredients specially compounded to deliver the most effective nutritional health benefits. Utilizing the latest advances in medical and nutritional science, they apply state of the art manufacturing technologies to help maintain a standard of product quality and integrity that is virtually unheard of in the pet industry. The NuVet Plus® supplement focuses on the root cause of illness and disease while simultaneously boosting a pet’s immune system and overall health. For dogs suffering from joint pain due to osteoarthritis or hip dysplasia, NuJoint DS helps improve mobility by lubricating joints, rebuilding cartilage, accelerating the healing process and reducing pain quickly. NuJoint DS has increased amounts of the active ingredients MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), Glucosamine, and Chondroitin. NuJoint DS also includes Vitamin C (Ester-C®) which is required for the synthesis of collagen (a component of joint cartilage), and it can also reduce free radical damage to cartilage.
Emma: Mom put together a short video showing you before and after the NuVet® supplements. Please tell my friends a bit about what they should look for before they watch? The end of the video is where the Monday mischief comes in. You are having quite the time with Bailie which makes us all so happy to see!
Katie: In the first short clip, you see how I struggle to walk. Mom is almost pulling me. My front right leg is very stiff, I am almost walking sideways pulling myself along and I look really sad. In the second part of the video I am walking at a good pace for being on snow with just a slight limp on my front left leg. I have a frontal and side view. The last part of the film is the best where I am in the snow wrestling, jumping and running with little Bailie. You can see how much better I really feel! Don’t count this Kuvasz with arthritis out, I am still good for some mischief with the puppy!
Emma: I hope this short interview and review may help out some of my furry friends that have joint pain and/or issues. NuVet® also has products for kitties in case you are a cat reading this. We were amazed at the transformation Katie has had in such a short time and hope it continues. Katie and I both say it is definitely worth trying, and even for younger healthy dogs like Bailie and I we feel it is important to take a supplement to stay healthy in the future. NuVet® offers a sixty day, 100% satisfaction guarantee. If after trying the product you are not satisfied for any reason, they refund your money to you! Thank you NuVet® for bringing your wonderful product to my attention for me and my sisters to try. Our whole family is very grateful!
