Dog Joint Mobility
I don’t know about your dogs, but mine are frisky! I noticed this morning. It’s actually an exciting thing to have frisky dogs. For me. Dog joint mobility is a big deal for the senior dogs.
Flash and Patches are fourteen and a half years old. They’ve slowed down tremendously since my cancer diagnosis. I know the two don’t necessarily go hand in hand, but it’s been disheartening. Their joint supplements just weren’t as effective, and they had trouble moving around. Flash wouldn’t even go upstairs to watch the neighborhood from the bay window. That’s one of his favorite past times, playing neighborhood watch like a grouchy old man. But stairs became a challenge. And Patches stopped playing. Joint mobility has been bad. I thought surely we were nearing the end for my darlings.
Hunny took them both to the vet for me, to see where their health stood, see if there was something we could give them to bring life back to their old bones. Turns out they’re very healthy old dogs, just arthritic. The vet recommended a stronger joint supplement. It brought my babies back to life!
The dogs get their joint supplement every morning. It’s chewable. They love it. It’s affordable. Which means I love it. I’m so grateful to have them back. They’re no longer young dogs, but this will do. The panting has decreased, and the mobility has increased. I’m not going to link to the supplement, but I found it cheapest on Amazon – Synovi G4.
Fall Has Finally Crept In
Fall is here. Well, it’s in the 50’s in the mornings and doesn’t quite climb out of the 70’s during the day. Glorious. And my double coated Aussie mixes adore the weather. Just this morning I watched Patches play bow with Flash, something she hasn’t done in months. She runs across the yard to come in, also something she hasn’t done in months. Flash is going up and down stairs, following Hunny up to the man cave. (Hunny keeps a stash of Jones Natural Chews beef liver taffies in the man cave)
Because it’s cooler here, Hunny has let the chickens and duck into the back yard. They’ve spent way too much time in their chicken yard this year, thanks to cancer. So here’s my thought – maybe the better joint mobility isn’t completely dependent on the supplements. Maybe – just maybe – part of it is chicken poo? This is the first time in months that the pups have had access to one of their favorite treats, and now it’s all over the back porch.
I kid. They do like to snack on chicken poo, but they’d still coming running without hesitation for a Jones Natural Chew . They’re smart that way. And I truly attribute their new joint mobility to the supplement.
Speaking of Jones and joint mobility, we’re currently in the middle of a giveaway! Our Bow Wow Boo Bucket is filled with nine all natural meat treats from Jones. What does that have to do with joint mobility? One of those treats is a six inch Windee! The Windee, or cow trachea, is nature’s highest source of glucosamine and chondroitin! Great for younger dogs with known joint or hip issues, as well as a beneficial treat for senior dogs. And your dog wants one.

Enjoy your weather, wherever you are! And give your dog a Jones Natural Chew, then watch it smile.
