My biggest regret is that I did not make a note of the dates involved regarding the marked improvement in our dog Jed.
First a little history on Jed. We got him at about four months of age in the late spring of 1998. He is 1/2 Rhodesian Ridgeback and 1/2 Chocolate
Lab. He was always very active as you might guess from the Lab half. At one time in his prime he weighed in at the Vet's at 72 lbs
Now, when the wear and tear of 13 years came to the surface last winter he had apparently become quite stiff; possibly arthritic; espicially in
his hind quarters. It was very difficult for him to get up, and also stiff about walking. Sometimes he would limp in his right rear leg. Also
in the past year or two he has had teeth problems so his eating dropped off and he now weighs probably from 40 to 50 lbs so his troubles were not
due to excessive weight. Well, we received a package of "Want A Snack brand Dog Snacks" from Cal Density. After giving him one a day for 4 days he was
getting up and about a lot easierthan he had for some time. He steadily improved to the point that getting up and down is a whole lot easier and less stressful for
him. Also there is no longer any limp. Mind you he is 13 so there hasn't been any rabbit chasing or ball fetching for some time; but he does get along much better
now. Other than moving slower than he used to and being thinner along with some hearing loss; his life looks to be a lot more enjoyable thanks to
"Want A Snack". We will make sure he gets it daily from now on. We are most grateful for your help and caring.
