Annie, the dog on the Mobile Bones trial originally presented with a mild ******** patella of the left hind leg.
She had fair to good extension of this leg, and average movement within the rest of the joints for a 2yo terrier. The owner explained how Annie was showing the typical ‘hopping’ and lifting of the left leg while she was running about in the garden or on walks.
Annie seems to be eating the mixture fine, although the owner reports that she can often be fussy, so palatability seems good. The owner is also happy with the measuring system, and its ease of use.
Over the 30 day trial the patella still continued to ******, however gradually there was an overall development within the joint mobility and extension of the limbs.
At the end of the trial, I felt that Annie had advanced within the way her joints were working, her extension of the limbs and in my opinion, comparing the results to her previous mild ******** I feel that Mobile Bones has had an impact on Annie’s condition.
I will be recommending it, and no doubt Annie’s owner will too.
