"The Joint Health Formula really helped relieve the stiffness and inflammation…"
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 support 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.

"He is the happy-go-lucky pup he was before!"
Thank you so much for the wonderful products you make for our fur kids. Our GSD mix, Bubba, developed issues with his hips at the age of 3 1/2. We were devastated. I researched just about every option for him I could find.
I found Springtime, and was recommended the Joint Health Formula. We received our order and had some difficulties getting Bubba to eat his food with the Joint Health Formula in it but we finally found a routine that works. We use high quality canned food with a few of his favorite treats and add crushed freeze dried liver on top. I want to tell everyone who has a finicky pup like Bubba to NOT give up!!
Bubba did amazing on the Joint Health Formula- success! I cannot say enough good things. I tell everyone I know to check out Springtime Supplements. At one point, we went to an orthopedic surgeon just to get Bubba checked out. But, the vet said he wouldn't suggest surgery at this point, to just "keep doing what you're doing, Bubba is in great condition!" Bubba is chasing balls again and rough housing with his younger brother. He is the happy-go-lucky pup he was before. We can never thank you enough.
With much gratitude, Scot & Sara Field, Wisconsin

"...no surgery required for Simba."
I volunteer with Mid Atlantic Great Dane Rescue, Dogue de Bordeaux Rescue, Cane Corso Rescue, and a local Pit Bull Rescue, Good Dog Adoption Agency. My Bordeaux Mastiff, Simba, had some knee problems and the vet said he would most certainly require surgery. The other knee was not quite as bad. In any event, I started him on the Joint Health Formula, giving him two scoops per day. Within 10 days the knee maintained healthy function and that was almost seven months ago. I now give it to all four of my dogs and to date, no surgery required for Simba.

Romie is back to running & jumping!
14 Year Old Romie Turns Back the Clock!
My vet was out of solutions for my 14 year old dog, Romie. Nothing helped her, and now we were at the point where I had to lift her up to bring her outside to pee and lift her up again to bring her back inside.
I tried the Joint Health Formula for Romie as I had nothing to lose... After less than 2 weeks on the maximum dose, my Romie was standing and walking! After 1 month she was running and could jump on and off the bed (and she hasn't done that since she was 1 year old!)
Now I give her the maintenance dose for her weight to keep her good. Joint Health Formula was very effective and cost way less than any other solution my vet had given me. And without the side effects! Keep it up! And most of all, thank you for my Romie, who has been with us since she was almost a year old!
