Meet Marley, a black lab mix & beloved part of the Pitts family! She was rescued from an adoption center at 2 years old and was immediately loved by everyone in the family! (and very spoiled)
Marley loves to play and is always eager to go on walks or go play fetch at the local park. Usually, she is met by strangers asking to pet her and give her treats.
About 6 months ago she started to seem 'off' from her normal happy/energetic self. She became uninterested in playing out in the yard and even going on a walk.
These changes in behavior raised some suspicion but were brushed off and assumed to be Marley just getting older. As more time went on, however, she started to look uncomfortable and stiff. She even started to develop a small limp while walking.
The Pitts concerned for Marley decided to take her to the Vet. After some x-rays and a physical exam, the Vet determined Marley was suffering from Osteoarthritis (OA) in her joints.
As a first resort, the Vet told them to put Marley on a hip & joint supplement to see if she would improve before putting her on prescriptions.
Once the Pitts came home they immediately started to research the various hip & joint supplements on the market. It was quickly discovered not all products were created equally and many contained TOXIC fillers including palm fruit oil which is known to cause diarrhea and kidney damage to dogs.
Finally! They came across a special hip & joint supplement made by Barx Nutrition that is all-natural, doesn't contain toxic fillers and has all the right ingredients.
Full of hope they ordered the product and started giving the special chews to Marley.
Within 6 weeks Marley was back to her old self and enjoyed playing again which brought so much happiness back to the Pitts family!
