Helen Knight with Ted & Ernie
Hearing your positive stories about pets that are on ProJoint 4 Dogs is something we cannot get enough of! Lillidale supporter Helen is happy for us to share her story.
Ted is an 8 year old Border Collie, and his buddy Ernie is a 12 year old Jack Russell terrier. Both lead very active lives with owner Helen, along with her three horses, two sheep, four chinchillas and four cats on her small holding in the hills of North Devon.
Ted in particular was starting to feel the effects of an ageing body, displaying some discomfort in getting up as well as an uneven gait. And although his mind was always willing, his body was a little more reluctant to jump around with the same vigour of his youth!
Within a week of starting ProJoint 4 Dogs, Ted was beginning to show signs of being more comfortable, or as Helen puts it 'sprightly'! Another week on and she has noticed how he is now following her up the stairs rather than sitting at the bottom - a good thing we hope?!
Ernie has also started having ProJoint; the local bird population are not so happy with his progress though as he has taken to chasing them across the fields rather than just pootling around!
"Both dogs are now jumping up onto the furniture with ease, whereas before they tended to sit and think about it before scrabbling up" said Helen, "I've also been surprised at how Ted is starting to fill out and he is definitely sleeping better - an indication I think that he is a lot more comfortable in himself."
Helen is also pleased to see their coats are improving too. ProJoint has been developed to promote overall health of the dog with 14 active ingredients including curcumin, piperine and Omega-3 help support the natural anti-inflammatory response, L-glutamic acid and beta-glucans to support both gut function and immunity, as well as beet pulp which contains betaine, a natural prebiotic to help digestive health.
We love to hear your stories - please keep sharing them!
