My 14 year old Staffordshire, Emma, has arthritis and spondylosis and currently takes a number of meds for pain management. After a recent fall, the vet wanted to temporarily increase her normal meds and so my quest began to find other ways to ease her discomfort. I came across this oil and decided to try it out. I really noticed a difference when I ended up spilling the first bottle, stopped dosing to reorder, and began dosing again with the second bottle. Emma has a bit more pep in her step and seems to be more at ease after a few days of continuous dosing. She takes the oil no problem in the am with a little squirt in the mouth, and mixed in her food in the pm. Although still experimenting a bit with the dosages, I definitely plan to continue using the product.
