Since Pom Pom’s onset of arthritic symptoms, she has been getting regular acupuncture sessions (link to blog about Pom’s acupuncture) and 2 doses of this all-natural, liquid medicine to help manage pain and the progression of the arthritis.
Officially dubbed “Pom Pom’s Potion,” the blend is made of organic alfalfa, yucca, organic burdock, and organic licorice roots, and supports joint health in both dogs and cats. Our vet suggested this as an alternative to liver-damaging pain killers that are traditionally used to treat arthritis in pets. This potion has worked miracles – within the first couple of weeks, she had stopped limping, running around the house, and attempting to jump on and off the sofa again!
A 1-fl. oz. bottle of this magic juice runs $23, and a 2-fl. oz. bottle costs about $30…not the cheapest thing in the world, but if you think about how much prescription medication for pets can be (around $100/month, or more!), this is actually quite the bargain. Plus, the potion is all natural, so no need to worry about harmful side effects from pharmaceuticals. The little one loves the taste of it too!
Summary: All-natural blend of herbs are effective at curbing Pom Pom’s arthritis, and also work as a treat twice a day because she loves the taste so much. It’s a win-win situation!
