Dear Springtime,

My husband and I have been raising and working with sled dogs in interior Alaska for over 30 years. The card I sent was our Christmas card for 2010. That's Jacob on the cover with me. At eight years old, he's one of our younger dogs.

Our dogs are older now, as we are. We currently have 15 dogs, and most are 8-13 years old. We've been using Joint Health Formula for 10 years now. At the time, several of our dogs were having back problems. The Joint Health really helped relieve the stiffness and inflammation they were experiencing. We've used it ever since. We buy it 10 lbs. at a time and put two big scoops in their breakfast bucket. Your catalog markets the 10 lb size for horses, but it's an economical way to buy it for a dog team as well.

The "runs" with our younger dogs are more like "walks" these days and the distances we go are closer to five miles than the 50 mile days we did in past years. The Joint Health Formula really helps our dogs continue to enjoy this sport we all love so much. They still jump around like puppies when it is time to go.

Thank you,
Rebecca and Doug Bowers, Alaska
