It is German Shepherd day on May 10 so we are celebrating German Shepherds with one of our favorite testimonials! We were so happy to receive this testimonial about Zac, a beautiful German Shepherd dog (GSD). Ana is Zac's mum and regularly brings her GSD to her veterinary clinic at Greencross Veterinary Clinic in Australia.
Ana knew her GSD would have joint problems in his future. She was very familiar with arthritis in dogs, especially in GSDs. As a preventative measure, she was giving Glyde® Mobility Chews to her Zac as early as one year old. Now at 6 years old, they have added more treatment to keep Zac mobile, active and HAPPY! We are so glad to see this wonderful video from Ana staring her lovely GSD, Zac. In Ana's words, Zac is simply, "...living his best life!" We loved seeing it for our own eyes. Thanks for being a #GlydeDog, Zac! Be sure to check out the video!
“This is my German Shepherd, Zac and he is 14-years-old, but you wouldn’t know it because he is still very active and leaving his best life thanks to his Glyde Chews.
Our veterinarian at Greencross Vets have recommended Glyde for Zac since he was 1-year-old to help protect his joints as he has a higher chance to develop osteoarthritis being a large breed dog.
We also started using Zydax after he turned 6, the results are amazing! People often can’t believe his age because his mobility is still very good, but I do honestly believe it’s because we started him on Glyde so early on in his life and then added the Zydax injections to further strengthen his treatment.
In the odd occasion when I have run out of his Glyde Chews, I can tell the difference within a few days. He struggles more, is a lot slower at getting up and refuses to play. As soon as we start back on Glyde and Zydax, he’s back to being happy and playful again!”
