This week is National Veterinary Technician's Week! It's a time to celebrate those Vet Techs in our lives that keep our animals happy and healthy. Vet Techs are often the very backbone of your favorite Veterinary Clinic. When you head to your annual vet appointments, be sure to recognize those Vet Techs. They do a lot to make your pet's visit the best it can be. Plus, they really are miracle workers at times.
We were especially excited to receive this testimonial because it came from a Vet Tech! We are sharing it with you because we love hearing from our veterinary clinic technicians since they are the front line of what makes our veterinary clinics work. They see it all! And they help treat all the ailments and illnesses. They know what works and what does not. That's why this story from Bonnie about her adorable dog Jimi, was even more of a bonus! Plus, it came with some adorable photos of Jimi. Read on for more!
Bonnie, Jimi’s mum decided to try Glyde after seeing the remarkable results with other pets in their own clinic. Jimi is a black Labrador Retriever mix, a breed typically at high risk for arthritis. Bonnie knew she had to protect Jimi's joints and we are thrilled to hear from her about Jimi and his #GlydeDog story.
Bonnie intended Glyde to be used as a preventative treatment for her dog. At age 6, Jimi is at a perfect time to start Glyde™ Mobility Chews: young enough that he has not had mobility issues yet, but still old enough to thwart off future damage before it starts. We were excited to hear from Bonnie and see these adorable photos of Jimi with his Glyde Frisbee!
Here are some interesting statistics to remember:
- 80% of dogs will have arthritis by age 8 and over.
- 20% of dogs will have arthritis by age 1.
Arthritis in joints is sometimes misinterpreted as "getting old." If you treat the problem, and protect the joints, your dog will have better odds of a happy, active life.
Now here is what Bonnie said:
“Jimi is a 6-year-old Labrador cross cattle dog who loves jumping and playing. I knew Glyde did great things for his joints and body based on what I have seen with other pets in our clinic who tried this product. While I feel he’s still young, I wanted to be proactive and protect his joints before something happened. My plan is to keep him on Glyde Mobility Chews so that he can continue his fun outlook on life and continue playing for a long time to come.”
