Customer Question
Hi there my club...

Hi there my club is an 8 year old cocker spaniel with possible early signs of arthritis although this has not been confirmed. My car has prescribed medical for him. I have been researching the product online and am concerned about the general reviews regarding the product. My dog is a health spaniel whom is larger than life. Is there an alternative and what is the truth about this product. Concerned owner??

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with your dog?

Minor limping on rear leg. Prescribed metacam by vet

Veterinarian's Assistant: Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

No wound already assessed by vet. Can you answer my previous opening question for me as I am seriously concerned
