Max, a 12-year-old Border Collie, has been owned by Kira Simpson since he was a seven-year-old farm pup. Because he is unusually tall and long in conformation, his joints have had to deal with extra stress as he got older and this had started to affect his mobility.
Max has always been hard to please with his food and is a very fussy eater, having only eaten very cheap, unhealthy dog food for the majority of his life. When Kira visited the Gatcombe Horse Trials last year, she found out about the range of complete dog foods from VetSpec and decided to try Max on VetSpec Omega-3 Joint Mobility Formula.
This exciting, complete dog food is packed with an outstanding veterinary specification joint supplement and is made from 60% chicken with added vegetables and herbs. It ticks all the boxes for dogs with poor mobility, in hard physical work or simply needing a bit of help keeping agile and fit.
VetSpec Omega-3 Joint Mobility Formula ensures that Max has a consistent, palatable and delicious, high quality daily feed that provides all the nutritional support he needs for a long, healthy and happy life.
It is rich in DHA and EPA (Omega-3 fatty acids), glucosamine and chondroitin at levels only normally found in veterinary grade supplements and also includes biotin and other associate nutrients to greatly improve the coat and promote a supple skin.
Wheat gluten-free with no added colours, preservatives or artificial flavours, VetSpec Omega-3 Joint Mobility Formula is also ideal for elderly dogs and those recovering from orthopaedic operations and skeletal injury.
Said Kira: “Max has been fed VetSpec Omega-3 Joint Mobility Formula for a year now and he absolutely loves it and now cleans his bowl every day! He was also on a joint supplement as he was diagnosed with osteoarthritis, but since starting to feed him the VetSpec food, we have not seen a need for this.”
“He is full of life, energy and spark and I’m absolutely convinced this is because of the VetSpec Omega-3 Joint Mobility Formula giving him the very best of what he needs nutritionally as well as providing him with benefits of a joint supplement. He still enjoys walks on the beach, which involves him walking over a headland and down a flight of steep stone steps; he still has energy after this to jump and play in the breakwater which I think is remarkable for a dog who, a year ago, took quite a while to even get up off of the sofa because he was so stiff.”
“I’d like to thank VetSpec for producing a food that has allowed Max to continue enjoying doing his favourite things, even into his twilight years. Giving an owner extra years with their beloved dog and allowing them to enjoy an active life for this long is something that I can’t thank you enough for.”
