All dog owners deal with what we call “limp and gimp” from time to time. You know the symptoms, the dog shows difficulty walking or favors a leg or can’t jump up on couch or into the car, or experiences pain when you touch a leg or joint area. You immediately wonder….is my dog hurt?
Telling actual injury from inflammation can be difficult as we can’t Xray the dog at home and sometimes there is redness and swelling and sometimes there isn’t. That’s because the swelling can be on the inside so it’s invisible to the dog owner at home.
Dogs are athletes and they do what nature intended them to do no matter their size, breed or disposition. They run, they jump, they turn, they zig, they zag and they can land hard. Often times, physical shock and stress on the hips and joints can lead to inflammation. At this point, there is no injury but the dog is sore and can’t move normally.
Inflammation loves to live in joint soft tissue where the tendons and ligaments are. Physical stress and overuse causes inflammation and soreness in these areas (just ask any marathon runner). If treated quickly, it’s possible to solve the problem at home using a product like WINPRO Mobility. The blend of animal blood proteins in the WINPRO Mobility is called KThrive. The blood proteins in K-Thrive are nature’s secret weapon against inflammation. Often times WINPRO will work in as little as 48 hours. So you can actually see it work.
Best of all WINPRO is all natural and won’t create negative side effects like NSAIDS and Rimadyl can. So it’s perfectly safe and dog owners feel good using it.
At $1 a day, it’s worth giving WINPRO a try when you first see any limp and gimp in your dog. Heading off injury is always easier than fixing it. And dealing with inflammation before it becomes a serious problem is good for the dog too.
