I purchased this product because of the success of Recovery EQ for my horse. I have two 10 yr. old Airedales who are both showing signs of advanced arthritis. I believe that this product has definitely helped both the male (95 lbs.) and female (85 lbs.) The one thing I've noticed is that the male has stopped eating horse manure. He is feeling better, wants to go for walks, and sleeps soundly without moaning and groaning through the night.

Good result, but ...
After seeing excellent results with the EQ version in my thoroughbred, I purchased this for my German Shorthaired Pointer who has a partially torn cruciate ligament. My vet and I are hoping to avoid surgery. This product is effective, but to get the 1 1/2 teaspoon of powder into my dog is a battle. I have tried mixing with melted cheese, Braunschweiger, canned dog food, baby food, butter, and more. She will not touch it. I have to put it down her throat to get it done. The best method I have found is to mix with a little broth or baby food in a syringe, and squirt it down, but it is a messy, time-consuming battle every morning. I believe it is helping, but it's hard to tell, as she is also on a half dose of Dasuquin MSM, HA, and Ligaplex II. It is a good product, but would be better if available in a more palatable form.

The product worked as advertised. I would be sending for another order pretty soon. Thank you, and my dog also thank you.

Recovery SA - Great for my Rotti
My 95-pound very active 2-year-old Rottweiler was diagnosed with mild-moderate hip dysplasia. She used to cry when she stood-up or when she played too hard. I put her on a regime of 2 tsp Recovery-SA + 4,000mg fish oil + Wysong Optimal Performance Dog food each day and she stopped crying 95% of the time. I tried many other organic/natural dog food kibble, but Wysong seemed to work the best for her....when I tried other dog food brands, her pain would come back to some degree and it took a couple weeks for her pain to go away again once I switched her back to Wysong (despite staying onthe Recovery-SA and fish oil). Her pain is under great control, but she started getting ear infections in the summer months, so I switched her over to 1.75 pounds per day Darwin ZooLogics raw-grain-free dog food. The ear infections stopped and I could reduce her dose of the Recovery-SA and fish oil significantly. Although I feed her 100% Darwin now, she still did substantially better when I only fed her 1/2 pound darwin mixed in her Wysong kibble each day ...so even a little bit of raw food can help the inflammation. It takes a holistic approach, but moderate hip dysplasia can be well controlled without surgery :)

I give this to my 2 year old chihuahua who has bad knees. Before I started giving her the Recovery I could really tell when she was hurting and in pain from running and playing or after a short hike with her boy scout friends. After 3 weeks on the Recovery SA, my son went on a weekend camp out, and Scout kept up with him on a 2 mile hike. She didn't seem to be in any pain that night or the next day! Thank you for giving out little girl the freedom to play again, pain free!!

My eight year old Brittany tore a muscle in her back a few years ago and we have had reoccuring problems with it ever since. Not only does she compete in Field Trials we want to keep her happy and healthy. Since starting to use this product she had not had a sore back and her motion is the field has been fluid. I can't say for sure it is solely due to the Recovery SA but it sure seems to be helping.
