For most of us, pets are family. You know me – my dogs and cats are my “kids,” and I want them to live the longest, healthiest lives possible. As our pets age, they start to exhibit signs of joint pain, slowing down and maybe even a weakened immune system. Wouldn’t it be great if as pet parents we could be proactive and supportive of our fur friend’s potential health concerns? Well, now we can be with a plethora of options available to us. With Wynston approaching five years old and Joey turning six this June, I want to be sure that I am doing the best I can to make their everyday life comfortable and pain free. I know that five and six sound young, but there’s no age limit on being proactive! Wyn and Joey have been on NOW® pet supplements for about a month now and I’m excited that I’m contributing to their continued optimal health.
What are NOW Pet Supplements?
NOW Pets is a new line of quality supplements under the umbrella of NOW. The supplements are formulated to support optimal health and wellness in dogs and cats. They were created with the guidance of Dr. Barbara Royal, DVM, CVA, a renowned Midwestern veterinarian and pioneering expert in holistic animal care. The NOW® Pets line offers products specifically tailored to address today’s most common pet health concerns. Many pet parents are opting for more natural animal care, and NOW Pets supplements offer that to us.
Let’s start with Joey. I worry about him. I worry about back pain and back leg pain. Although he runs, walks and plays like a normal cat, recently he’s been wanting me to carry him down the stairs. Now, I’m not sure if he just likes me to carry him down the stairs or if it’s hurting him. You can bet that our next house will be one floor…but in the meantime, I want to do everything I can to avoid him being in pain.
I opted to start Joey, who turns six years old this June, on NOW Pets Joint Support supplements. This formula assists with healthy aging of joints. It’s formulated to help alleviate occasional discomfort associated with routine daily activity. The routine activity I’m worried about is Joey simply walking down the stairs. Does it hurt him? I don’t know. I really wish I could ask. But since I can’t, he’s been on the joint support supplement. The best thing I can do as a pet parent is take advantage of this natural pet supplement for cats and dogs.
Wynston turns five years old on September 11, 2016. For some breeds, five is senior but for Chihuahuas, it’s still young. However, “young” or not, I want to provide Wynston with joint support to keep his bones strong and healthy. As a past agility dog (and potentially again in the future), the activity can take a toll on his body. Wynston has become more active lately. So much so, in fact, that he’s lost weight. As a mom this makes me extremely happy. I noticed that on our daily walks, he runs a lot of the time! In the past he would run a lot but he slowed down over time. Now he’s running to keep up with Khloee and McKenzie Rae! I remarked to Matt the other night that Wynston now runs on at least half of the walk each night. He seems to be back to his younger self.
As they get older, many cats and dogs experience joint mobility and flexibility issues due to normal daily exercise and activity. Veterinarians often recommend a healthy diet accompanied by pet supplements to help alleviate pain and discomfort.

The joint support supplements that Wynston and Joey are on come in a tablet form. The tablets are super easy to break in half. Since Joey and Wyn are less than 20lbs, they get 1/2 a tablet twice daily. It’s as easy as breaking the tablets in half with my hands. Can’t get much more convenient than that!
