Roux is a 13 year old Chocolate Labrador Retriever who enjoys duck hunting and playing with her family. As she got older, Roux experienced aching joints, and had trouble getting into cars, up stairs, and onto the couch. As a result, her vet put her on 100 mg of Rimadyl a day and eventually on Glycoflex as well. Her owners did not like having Roux on so much medication, and sought out a healthier, more natural alternative treatment for the problem, not just the symptoms.
Roux began OxyNu, and after two weeks, her liveliness came back to her. She was able to get in and out of the truck without assistance, and after 30 days, she began to put back on the weight she lost over the years.
Her owners tracked her progress over the course of several months.
“By the end of March, after 30 days of treatment, Roux was able to go up and down the stairs and jump into the truck.”
In April, Roux was not eating all of her food at one time but still finished each meal. She appears to be gaining healthy weight. She is running around playing in the yard and looks happy. At the beginning of the month the owner called Roux’s Vet to ask how long the steroid shot that she received in February would last. Surprisingly, the Vet reported that the steroid shot that she received back in February, only lasted for 3 days.
In May, Roux continued to improve and continued running and playing around the yard. She seems happy and is getting around as she did when she was a young adult. At this time she is still able to climb the stairs at home.
At the end of June, Roux’s owner noticed that she was a little stiff. This did not affect any of her activities such as going up and down the stairs. Glycoflex was given for 2 days to help with her stiffness.
Roux has been on OxyNu Canine for almost 5 months now. She continues to manage her weight well, and at 13 1/2 years of age is able to get around much better than when she started the trial.
She has not been to the Vet since February of 2012 and is still able to climb up and down the stairs at home and playing in the yard.
On July 27, Roux’s owners had a pool party and Roux was up and running around, excited about all of the activity.
On July 28, Roux’s owners noticed that she was slow moving and had trouble getting up after sleeping.That day only, Roux was given 3 Glycoflex as she had been prescribed before.
Roux has not received any Glycoflex in August. The only supplement that she takes is OxyNu Canine. She is happy, playful, and able to climb up and down the stairs.
Roux continues to maintain her liveliness as previously mentioned, “although she is fast approaching the age of 14.”
Roux is now almost 15 years old and is still doing well.
