Would highly reccommend
on 30 December 2015
We had taken our 10 year old Labrador Rolo to the Vets due to arthritis in his back legs, we were told it was old age and was to be expected, we were given anti inflammatories, which we were told would help, but he would need to be on them for life. After a month of taking the prescribed tablets, he was in less pain, but would not put his left hind leg down, so was suffering muscle wastage.The poor dog couldn't get up stairs and struggled to get out of his basket.
My wife bumped into another dog walker by chance at the park, who saw our dog limping, she told here that her friend was a PDSA vet who recommended Youmove to his clients, as we were paying £70 per month for the prescribed drugs, we thought it was worth a go, We started him on 6 a day for a month which was the recommended loading dose for his weight, to start with we didn't see any improvement, after about 6 weeks, he had less of a limp, but it was still quite bad , but after i would guess at about 3 months , we suddenly realised the limp had stopped and he was putting full weight his leg for the first time in months. We are now about 6 months into taking youmove, he has stopped the prescribed drugs and is now able to jump into the car , run down the steps and can go for a decent walk , which he hadn't done for quite some time.
The main thing i would recommend is to persevere, the improvement didn't happen overnight, but we have now got our old dog back, we don't know how long that will last, but fingers crossed .
A tub of 300 tablets cost me just over £30 , which lasts us 3 months, better than the £70 per month from the vets,and the drugs he was on, had quite a lot of negative comments on the web about kidney damage, when taken long term, so it's a win win for us.
