Blue is my 5 year old Neapolitan Mastiff x Great Dane – a lovely sweet boy, who came to me as a rescue dog at 10 months old. Within a few weeks of having him home it became clear he was having trouble with his hips and/or back legs, and my fears were confirmed by the vet, who after x-raying him, diagnosed Blue with hip *******. As I’m sure you can imagine, this was initially quite a shattering piece of news for us – such a horrible thought to think of a dog so young, with his entire life ahead of him, having to live a restricted life due to this horrible condition!
Our vet put Blue on Metacam, to be taken daily initially for six weeks, and then every other day for a further six weeks, and then we were to return to the vets to reassess after this time. We did as instructed, and sure enough, Blue did improve immensely during his time on Metacam, but I had the ever present niggling thought at the back of my mind, that I just wasn’t comfortable having my boy on such a powerful drug, which numerous serious side affects, long term – especially since Blue was still really only a pup!
I took to my trusty friend Google, and stumbled across Mobile Bones, ordering a packet to try – and honestly, we’ve never looked back. Blue has had it pretty much daily ever since, and no longer has any need for regular Metacam – he came off it completely within eight weeks of starting Mobile Bones, and now only needs the tiniest drop if he really over does things. Over the years I’ve tried numerous other joint care supplements with him, just out of curiosity really, but nothing hits the spot like Mobile Bones, and we always come back to it – I’ve now packed in all the messing around trailing other products, and stick firmly to Mobile Bones.
Blue is a big lad at 70 kg and hence takes 5 heaped spoonfuls of Mobile Bones a day, meaning a packet lasts us just shy of a fortnight – so we’re probably one of your best customers!
A huge thank you from both myself and Blue for producing such a terrifically useful product.
