We were thrilled to receive this testimonial about Walter, a beautiful Chocolate Labrador. Morika is Walter's mom who works at a veterinary clinic. As a veterinary professional, Morika is very familiar with osteoarthritis in dogs, especially in Labrador retrievers. As a preventative measure, she is giving Glyde™ Mobility Chews to her dog, Walter. We were glad to hear Walter is already a #GlydeDog!
Labrador Retrievers are popular for many reasons. Recently, Parnell wrote an in-depth article about Labrador Retrievers. Labradors have a higher propensity for arthritis in dogs because of their size and activity level throughout their lives. Here is how one Labrador Retriever's dog mom is working to beat the odds by using Glyde Mobility Chews as a preventative supplement to protect her dog's joints before the signs of arthritis set in. Here is what she said about Walter.
"Walter is a 4-year-old chocolate Labrador. This is the first time he has used Glyde. He is still quite young and has shown no signs of pain. But he absolutely loves the taste of Glyde and even though he is a Labrador, he is not ridiculously food-obsessed. He won't willingly eat the popular beef-flavored tick treatment. We are working ahead with Glyde as a preventative to be sure he stays active for a long time."
PREVENTION IS ALWAYS BETTER
It’s always best to prevent problems, rather than fix them afterward. Labs can start to slow down sooner than expected due to joint pain or arthritis. Help relieve these signs safely and naturally by adding a joint supplement to their diet.
Here’s how to stay on top of these health-related problems in Labrador Retrievers.
- Prevent signs of arthritis before they start! Joint supplements can promote joint health and cartilage development which keeps dogs active and youthful, longer. Learn what to look for in joint supplements for your dog.
- Consider starting them a joint supplement as cartilage improvement can be seen in most Labradors with a daily dose.
- Of course, make sure your dog is still active to help their joints work better. This includes regular walking and playing with your dog. A great opportunity to go to the dog park!
- Keep the weight down for the good health of your Lab. The heavier the dog, the more pressure on their joints. Every bit of exercise and proper feeding amounts will help as they age.
