Senior Dog Finds True Love

It's never too late. We're all entitled to fall in love at any age. Even senior dogs that suffer from dog arthritis and other age related ailments may find love at unexpected places. Well, this is exactly what happened to our Linguini, aka Spotted Dog, the dalmatian and german shortaired pointer mix.

We switched her supplements about a week ago. She used to be on K9 liquid health with dog glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM. This particular supplement had worked like a miracle for her. As soon as she was on it, she started to feel better. A few months later, we decided to switch to another formula, just to give her a jolt. After high recommendations and gathering the data, we tried out the Petco Joint Support III Tablets. The formula contains: glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, MSM, cetyl Muristoleate, and hyaluronic acid. Our joint resident expert determined that this was definitely worth a shot and we got out first bottle. Once again, another miracle. Our senior dog did really well with the new supplements and within two days started hopping around like a pup again. The verdict: we'll alternate between the two supplements every few weeks.


Now that Linguini's dog arthritis is temporarily under control, now that she's feeling much better, there are two things on her mind, how to jump the fence (yes, again), and how to find a soul mate to keep her company during the last stages of her life. She picked wisely.

Love is in the air . . .

May the two of them live happily ever after!
