Even though I am not a professional or vet, I always recommend hip and joint chews to people who have animals with some sort of joint issue. Whether it be soreness, a surgery, arthritis or just old age, I love hip and joint supplements. Pet Naturals of Vermont offers a more natural approach to a healthier life for your pets!
I first started using GNC, which can be bought at major pet stores. I started my cat Joey on the GNC, who suffers from radial hypoplasia. It’s a struggle for him to walk so I want to make sure he gets any support from me that he needs. I learned about hip and joint vitamins from my vet, who basically told me they work just as they would for a human with arthritis. So why not give it a try?
When Pet Naturals of Vermont gave me this review opportunity, I jumped on it because of Joey’s disability. Also my sister adopted a 4 year old Husky who needs knee surgery, so I figured it would be awesome for her to try as well. I got to try the hip and joint supplements for both cats and dogs!
Why I love Pet Naturals of Vermont
What I love about Pet Naturals of Vermont hip and joint supplements is that they are, of course, all natural! Ingredients (for both the cat and dog formula) include glucosamine HCI, methylsulfonylmethane, chondrotin sulfate and n-dimethyglycine HCI. What I also prefer about these as opposed to GNC is they are really soft. They don’t need to be crushed up or anything, they are simply a very soft chew. The chews for dogs are large, so I split it in half for Wynston. For Joey and Sadie, they easily eat them up with no problems!
Even though Sadie and Wynston don’t have join problems, they still get the supplements everyday because it can’t hurt! Wynston also suffers from intrathoracic tracheal collapse, so if I can assist in strengthening his body, I will. With Joey, I have noticed him become more active. He wants to play more and he comes downstairs more often. I have even noticed him just being awake more frequently to spend time playing.
I also tried out the flea and tick wipes that Pet Naturals of Vermont offers. Fortunately since we live in Arizona bugs and ticks aren’t too much of a problem. We like to use the wipes if we’re going on a hike or outdoor adventure, and I take them with us. The wipes are nice because they are soft and easy to use like any other wet wipes. They are great to get into the small crevices and creases of any dog’s shape. I only need one wipe for Wynston since he’s only 7lbs, but you may need more depending on how big your dog is.
Ingredients for these wipes include lemongrass oil, cinnamon oil, sesame oil and castor oil. I love anything natural and would highly recommend these wipes if you live in an area where ticks or other wildlife end up sticking to your fur child all too often!
