HAPPY TAILS – OMG SHE IS LIKE A PUPPY ALL OVER AGAIN!

Thank you top dog! My 3 yr. old golden retriever had TTA surgery. We went thru weeks of therapy and also did aquatic treadmill for 6 weeks. After all this she still had a slight limp after playing and retrieving her ball. I gave GlycanAid and saw results but at times still a slight limp. Now she is on GlycanAid and Flexerna Omega . OMG she is like a puppy all over again!

Thank you for these products.

HAPPY TAILS – WE KNEW IMMEDIATELY THE SUPPLEMENT WORKED!

Thank you so much TopDogHealth for your fabulous website and the GlycanAid HA. Our beloved Lad (17 year ++ ) had tore his ACL March 1 2016. We followed your road to recovery and used the supplements faithfully. We knew immediately the supplement worked and had given Lad some extra time here on earth. We lost our little boy on April 29. He had a fantastic “long” life, I only wish we had started your product years ago. I recommend your website and product to everyone I know that has a dog. Keep up the good work!! Thank you so much for giving our Laddie-boy some better days!!

LOVE to you all @ TOPDOGHEALTH

HAPPY TAILS – SAY THANKS ONCE AGAIN!

Dr St Clair,

It’s now been 2-1/2 years since my then 9 year old Cavalier King Charles had her MPL surgery. Watching her this morning chase a rabbit full speed through 4″ of snow now at the now age of 12 prompted me to write again and say thanks once more for your book and guidance post-op and the GlycanAid joint supplement that she’s been on ever since her surgery. I continue to buy the product on Amazon and keep her on the maintenance dose.

Our Chocolate Lab Pilot is 90 lbs and just turned 6 yo and you would never know he has 2 titanium knees! He had 2 TTA surgeries before he was 18 months old!

He goes on regular hikes with us and swims until the ice covers the lake! We foster dogs and he plays with these much younger dogs for days and doesn’t get sore!

Pilot loves TopDog Health, GlycanAid-HA Advanced Joint Health Supplement for Dogs Tasty Chewable Tablets – he is a very picky eater and he eats these like treats with breakfast and we love that its Made in the USA!He is active and happy and pain free!

HAPPY TAILS – I’LL NEVER USE ANOTHER JOINT SUPPLEMENT

I initially purchased GlycanAid for my previous dog Bruiser (he passed about 6 months ago). He had torn his ACL and was having a difficult time getting back to himself after surgery. Prior to his surgery we would go on three mile walks. A few weeks after the surgery, I was having a difficult time getting him to walk a block. That’s when I found Dr. St Clair’s rehab plan and information about GlycainAid. I began giving Bruiser the GlycainAid and over a two month period we went from barely walking a block to building up to a mile and a half. As Bruiser got older and began developing arthritis, GlycanAid was the only thing that I gave him. I never had to give him any pain pills, he did great on the GlycanAid. And we continued using it until he passed. I highly recommend it for arthritic dogs and dogs who have had leg surgeries.

I now give GlycanAid to my new dog Meatball. We adopted him shortly after Bruiser passed. He was in a shelter and was lucky to get a walk twice a week. When we took him home, we noticed he was a little stiff from sitting in the cage for so long at the shelter. But now with GlycanAid and daily walks, Meatball is no longer stiff when he walks. He runs, jump, walks and plays like a normal dog. (He also takes the GlycanAid pills like a champ, he thinks they are treats). I’ll never use another joint supplement other than GlycanAid on any of my dogs.

Thanks,

Bruiser at my wedding                                     Meatball ready to go on his walk

HAPPY TAILS – ACTUALLY HAS “FRISKY” DAYS!

Hello,

I am very grateful for Dr. St. Clair’s Home Rehabilitation Guide for Cranial Cruciate Ligament (CCL) Repair and for Top Dog Health’s supplements DermAid and GlycanAid HA. Our 11 year old Siberian Husky mix, Shadow, had the torn CCL surgery on January 2, 2017. Little did we know that it would be so difficult for him (and us) as he is an older dog and recovery seemed so slow and painful.

The guide certainly helped us cope and guided us through each phase of recovery. We started him on GlycanAid HA, but at first only gave him one tablet per day; after the expenses of surgery and canine physical therapy, we were “budgeting” with a dosage of one tablet a day since he is near the threshold of 50 pounds. (He was 59 pounds but has lost five pounds.) That was a mistake.

Since starting him on a full dose of two tablets a day of GlycanAid HA, his recovery is going so much better and his energy level is much higher; he actually has “frisky” days where he wants to play with his toys again! We are being conservative with running and climbing a flight of twelve steps to prevent an injury to the other hind leg, but there is a definite improvement in his spirit and desire to walk, run, and play! We are so happy to see him happy and enjoying life again without pain pills! We are enjoying our hour long walks again in parks and around our neighborhood and he wants to keep walking longer than that ! We wish we would have had this knowledge and these resources with Shadow’s predecessor, who had two CCLs and was on rimadyl for about seven years.

Thank you so much, Top Dog Health, for your advocacy on behalf of doggies everywhere and, in particular, dogs with this type of injury. Your mission and ministry are certainly needed ! Thank you, Thank you!

Sincerely,

Hi,
Meet Liezl, my 8 yr old Belgian Malinois who underwent TPLO surgery on February 3rd. My vet’s existing  post-op protocol called for 12 weeks of short, controlled leash walks for bathroom breaks only. The surgeon, on the other hand, suggested I consult your rehab regimen over the same 12 weeks. I followed his advice and am happy to announce that x-rays at the 8 week mark showed the bone completely healed and my vet now convinced that your protocol is the more desirable approach to take in the future.
Attached below are 2 photos of Liezl in her “prison” just home from surgery and today, ready for her stair therapy. Your step-by-step guidance and phone support were invaluable in bringing her back to normal in a much shorter time span. I will continue to recommend your site at every opportunity.

HAPPY TAILS – DERMAID

I wanted to tell you how much I love DermAid. I have 2, 100 pound dogs and both have short hair. In just a little over a week I noticed a change in their fur, it was much softer but the really dramatic change was my couch covers. They are usually covered in hair the first day they are put on, I’m not kidding, but now they still look great after a week! Before DermAid I would brush them outside and with each sweep of the brush I would get enough fur to feather a small nest. Now the brush does not fill up, I now know what normal shedding is. I know this is supposed to be about the comfort and health of the dogs but honestly this is making my life so much easier.

Thank you for another great product!

Today my 85lb would-be athletic takes it a little slower on doctors recommendation, enjoying a pain free, very active lifestyle. In addition he eats GlycanAid tablets like treats. They don’t upset his stomach, and looks forward to the toss-up and gulping them down. Thanks for the opportunity and gift of Glycanaid.

HAPPY TAILS – YES, I SAID 2 DAYS!
My almost 12 year old Rough Collie, Kane, has suffered from arthritis in his back feet joints for several years.  His back toes were always swollen and angry looking with inflammation.  He has been on a popular glucosamine supplement and an anti-inflammatory medication for many years so I thought his feet and joints were as good as they could get.  I really didn’t want to put him on any strong pain medication as Collies are very sensitive to drugs. 
 
I found Top Dog Health quite by accident and saw all the good stories about GlycanAid HA and decided to give it a try.  Two days (yes, I said 2 days!!!!) after treatment started, the swelling and inflammation in my dog’s feet and toes were almost gone.  He is now walking with a much more fluid gate and not taking “baby steps” anymore.  Going up and down the 3 steps into the back yard doesn’t seem to be such a chore for him.  He still has difficulty getting up from lying down, however, it seems easier for him.  Overall, he seems to be feeling better and is even taking part in play sessions with my other dogs.  It is so good to see Kane acting more like himself again.  I highly recommend GlycanAid HA to everyone particularly if you have an old, arthritic dog.  Kane just celebrated his 12th birthday and I hope his final years will be more pain-free thanks to GlycanAid HA!!!  Thank you, Dr. St. Clair, for such a wonderful product.

HAPPY TAILS – ALL BEHIND US NOW!

Shelby had surgery on both knees eight months apart. That is all behind us now and thanks first to the manual provided by topdog and secondly to the Glycanaid HA-factor she healed fast and remains in good health. Shelby will be five in Oct. since Shelby had done so good with the Glycanaid we decided to try Chelsey on it for the hip dysplasia that started very young. We have been able to reduce the amount of prescription Met-Formin which can in the long run cause several health problems. Curtailing her ball playing and adding the Glycanaid we hope our very soon to be seven year old has many more years. We all thank you.

My beautiful Ginger is now 6 and one year out of TPLO surgery. She tried other fish oils and Chondroitin recommended by the vet but still had a limp with moderate activity. I felt so depressed that I was desperate to try something new. Within 2 weeks of trying Glycanaid HA and Flexerna, the limp went away! Also, her need for Rimadyl went away! I firmly believe that not all products are created equal. This experience justifies my belief! NO MORE LIMP!

HAPPY TAILS – WE HAVE NOT BEEN DISAPPOINTED!

Our catahoula mix Austin luxated his right patella in October 2015 when he was only 10 months old and had right-sided MPL repair in November 2015.  On December 20, 7 weeks into rehab, he luxated his left patella and had MPL repair on January 15 but just a week later it popped out again so he had a revision on January 28.  After much research, we started Austin on both Flexerna and GlycanAid HA back in November 2015, wanting him to be on the best glucosamine and Omega 3 on the market due to his young age.  We have not been disappointed.  We are now 12 weeks into rehab of the left revision surgery and he could not be doing better.  He is walking/jogging/a little bit of running 4 to 6 miles a day (after of course a great 8-week checkup and the go-ahead from his surgeon) without a single lame step since walking out of the hospital in January and he is a power walker, slow has never been in his vocabulary.  He does not appear to be stiff or sore even after extra long walks.  I believe these products are the reason why he is healing so quickly and feeling so well.  And, of course, the rehab videos on the Top Dog website were so helpful in getting him to this point (yes, he is still a lazy sitter but we are working on that).  Thank you, Dr. J and team.  And thank you for the fast shipment of GlycanAid HA when we almost ran out.  We did not want him to miss a single dose.  He will be on both of these products for his lifetime.

HAPPY TAILS – THANKS FOR ALL YOUR INFORMATION, SUPPORT & CARE!

Hello Dr St Clair!
Wally had his surgery 4/14/16 and no tear to the other hind knee – hooray! He will be 5 years old next week and he has been through a lot already in his life.
We followed your rehab guide extremely close after his surgery and thank goodness for all the help.  The Orthopedic Vet did a great job with the surgery, but could do a better job educating patients on the after care and rehab.  I did share your guide with the Vet practice in the hopes that they would recommend it for future patients.  We did the rehab on our own and it was never suggested by the Vet post op.
Wally had a set back last August – 4 months after surgery – in which they felt he pulled something in the surgical leg. No exercise for him at that point.  Then……I myself suffered a very bad foot injury and no walking for me.  Neither of us were able to walk for months and months, and we both put on a few pounds.  Not good for Wally’s joints.
Wally was diagnosed February of this year with arthritis, which significantly increased from 6 months ago. We are swimming him, both now back to daily walking, laser therapy, adequan injections and of course, doing the rehab exercises from your guide.  The interesting thing is that until Wally was diagnosed with the arthritis and we addressed the symptoms of the arthritis, rehab exercises were never recommended by the Orthopedic Vet.  Strange that they were not proactive.  We still give Wally your Glycanaid supplement and will for the rest of his life,  We also have dropped some of his weight!
So, thanks for all your information, support and care.  You are an amazing person and I tell everyone about you every chance that I get!!!!!

HAPPY TAILS – WE’RE BACK AT THE BEACH!

So happy to be sharing Penny’s success story with you. It’s been about 8 months since Penny’s TPLO surgery (complete cruciate & meniscus tear). At 7 years old, I was worried she wouldn’t be able to go back to her active life of swimming, hiking, ball chasing. After the surgery, she was still limping after light activity, which her Vet attributed to the existing arthritis in her joint. I switched Penny’s joint supplement to Glycanaid HA about 2 months after her surgery, and around 1 month later I noticed that the limping went away. I took her on her first hike soon after that and she did great! Now the next big test- the beach. I was worried the uneven sand and jumping in and out of waves would be too much for her. At 6 months post-surgery and with Glycanaid, she conquered the waves! So thankful to have my adventure buddy back in action.

HAPPY TAILS:  WOW – WHAT A DIFFERENCE!

This is Jake.  He’s looking sheepish because he doesn’t like to have his picture taken.  But he also just got done playing fetch with his brother Elwood, which is something he couldn’t do until recently.  Jake had cruciate surgery in November, and our vet recommended that we follow the Top Dog Rehab Guide.  It was beyond helpful.  It was wonderful to have a plan to follow, and Dr. St. Clair was fabulous about answering our questions.   Jake was doing well, but we were not truly satisfied with his progress, so we switched him from the joint supplement that our vet had given us to GlycanAid HA about 6 weeks ago.  WOW – what a difference!!  He has more energy, wants longer walks, and plays with his brother like he did when they were puppies.  The only thing we are still working on is a correct sit, but we both feel that the fault lies with us on that one.  His sits have always been a bit to the side, and we just need to keep working on that with him.   Thank you, again, for the wonderful rehab guide and for answering our many questions along the way.  Jake will be on GlycanAid HA for the rest of his life, which we are both confident will be a long and active one.

HAPPY TAILS – FLAT OUT WORKS!

Hi, Dr. J!
 
Just wanted to let you know that Inky is still on the GlycanAid HA, and is doing great!  She’s going on 12 now, and hasn’t yelped at all since starting on GlycanAid last year.  At her last checkup in January of this year from her regular vet, he determined that both stifles are now gone, but advised against the surgery, since she’s doing extremely well on the GlycanAid HA.  I really appreciate so much that you developed this product; it’s been a lifesaver for Inky, and was a lifesaver for a little rescue dog I kept while he recovered from FHO surgery.

I also have a friend who has a gigantic old German Shepherd, and I raised the roof with her when I saw how fat he was!  He’s now lost over 10 pounds, and looks tons better, and is moving better.  I had her put Ruckus on GlycanAid HA, and it’s made a dramatic difference in his comfort level; instead of limping around, he’s back to walking and trotting like a much younger dog now, and is able to go to the dog park for a daily romp again.  

Can’t say enough about the product!  GlycanAid HA just flat out WORKS!!!  :-) 

Here is an updated picture of Inky.  I took this early this morning, when I had my dogs outside.  She’s almost 12 years old now; hard to believe I’ve had her for so many years now.  She loves her GlycanAid HA; has it every morning at breakfast, and thinks it’s a treat.

I called my friend, and she was nice enough to send a picture of Ruckus.  I’m happy that she’s gotten some weight off him, and so is his vet!  No more junk treats anymore either; he’s on green beans for treats now.  And he thinks his GlycanAid is also a treat!  He’s a huge dog, is 6 years old now, and it’s really nice to see him moving around so much better.

You helped our Oreo so much during her different CCL surgeries. She has recovered after 4 years. She is able to jump and run with her sister that is a 5 years old Lab.

I appreciate your kindness and concern during her recovery period. 
 
Dr Clark told me to let her be a dog and if she wants to jump up on the bed that will push her to get better on her own. But I think it is the GlycanAid HA that has gotten her to the activity level she enjoys today.

HAPPY TAILS – THANKS FOR A GREAT PRODUCT!

 

Nugget is still doing well at 12.5 years, about 2 years after his TPLO surgery (and then six months later, the redo of this surgery). After the first one, I did exactly what the surgeon said for rehab (which was basically keep him on a leash for a long time and then let him loose), and as soon as Nugget had the chance to run around again, he promptly reinjured himself.

So we went back in again for some tightening up, which turned out to have another extensive rehab period. By this time I had found your website, so I followed your instructions for rehab, plus put him on the GlycanAid HA, with much better results! He is a happy dog! Thanks for a great product!

HAPPY TAILS – COMPLETELY RECOVERED!

 

I have 2 highly active Springer Spaniel dogs that are 9 (Ruby) and 12 (Dotti) years old. In 2011, my younger one, Ruby started to limp on her front leg.  I had her X-rayed and vet told me she had a bone spur and should not walk over a mile at a time.  A few months later, my older Springer, Dotti tore her CCL out on her back leg and had surgery (suture type).  So I started giving my dogs Top Dog GlycanAid supplements right after CCL surgery–this was approximately 4 1/2 years ago.  About 1 year after surgery, Dotti tore out her good leg.  So I took her to the vet and he said she wouldn’t recover without surgery. We postponed the surgery.  We continued with the Top Dog GlycanAid HA supplements and did short leash walks (up to a mile) for 6-8 weeks and lots of swimming at the lake.  Her leg healed on its own without surgery this time.  Currently we hike on the forest everyday and they run free range. We go about 20-25 miles a week.  Some hikes are even up to 10 plus miles.  My girls have been doing great–completely recovered and no more limping!  They continue to get their Top Dog GlycanAid HA tablet everyday along with a fish oil tablet.

My dog had a torn cruciate almost 3 years ago. The vet had me follow the therapy plan Top Dog Health provided. I found it to be a manageable therapy program and very effective in her healing. No one ever asked me to use the GlycanAid-HA and continued to use the supplements I already had. I read about the GlycanAid online and decided to give it a try. I noticed a difference within a month of using that our dog was running stronger and seemed to have her pep back.

Hi Dr. J,
Actually, our 1-year old mixed breed dog has had bilateral MPL.  He had right-sided repair on November 6, 2015, then the left dislocated 7 weeks later on December 20 and repair on January 15.  The right-sided surgery went very well, the left not so much.  Just a week into recovery, the left side popped back out.  Multiple x-rays have shown he has anatomical defects with bowing of his femurs and a high-riding patella.  He had revision on January 28.  He is now 7 days post surgery and doing really well.  He has been on both GlycanAid HA and Flexerna since the middle of November and I would like to think his healing is going so well because of these products. He walked out of the hospital each time on all 4s. I plan to keep him on these for his lifetime.
Thank you for your website and videos, they have been very helpful in his rehab, especially the weekly emails with expectations and rehab recommendations.

HAPPY TAILS – HIS STRENGTH IS AMAZING!

 

Last spring my heart dog Sterling, had to have FHO surgery due to hip dysplasia.  My Vet gave me a copy of Dr J’s Home Therapy Booklet and it was a godsend.  I followed it and my Cavalier made steady progress.  About mid way through the recovery, I decided to try the GlycanAid HA supplement, since everything else Dr J had recommended worked and the videos on the Internet were so helpful.
When I started the GlycanAid HA, his progress was markedly faster.  I have continued his daily pill, he thinks it is a treat. His strength is amazing!  Now I have to put things he wants out of his reach, because he can stand on his hind legs for a lengthy amount of time to try to reach his toys or treats on counters.  Thank you Dr J and Top Dog.

HAPPY TAILS – LIKE A BRAND NEW DOG!
 
Hello Dr. St.Clair,
First of all, my dog did not have the surgery.  I found your website when researching what the rehab would entail if and when my guy would need the surgery.  I was very interested in the weekly instructions and found all the information very informative even though I didn’t need to use it at this time.
History about my beloved American Bulldog, Pork Chop.  He was diagnosed with hip dysplasia about 5 months ago.  He was just 18 months old at the time.  The X-rays were very definitive, but my vet wanted us to try a treatment.  I’ve been giving Pork Chop an injection of polyglycan.  We started with twice a week for 2 weeks, then once a week for 4 weeks.  I saw just a small bit of improvement so we continued the injections.  He’s had an injection every other week for the last 4 weeks.  About the time I began the second round of injections, I decided to begin him on your GlycanAid HA.  Within just a couple of weeks, his improvement was remarkable and has improved SO much.  He’s like a brand new dog.  I honestly don’t know if it’s the continued injections, or the supplement, or a combination of both.  Since American Bulldogs mature late, as in 2+ years, I even wonder if his ball and socket have seated into better position as he’s matured?  In any case, I plan to continue on the prescribed treatment.  The injectable will go to just once a month in January.  I will also be continuing the supplement as I truly believe it’s played a huge role in his improvement.
Thanks for the follow-up and wonderful service you provide!

HAPPY TAILS – A VERY HAPPY LITTLE 10 MONTH OLD PUP!
 
I have an 11 month old mini golden doodle. About 3 months ago she started having problems with her hind legs, particularly the left.  She would lift the leg and it seemed to lock in place, but not forgery long. Sometimes I would pick her up to straighten her hind legs and she would be fine.  She hopped on three legs on a few occasions.
I saw two vets and an orthopedic surgeon who said she had luxating patellas and would need surgery.
I decided to wait and see and sent for your joint supplement,GlycanAid HA, which she’s been on for the past five weeks.  I don’t know whether this had anything to do with it, but she has not limped or lifted her legs since.
She’s active, runs, plays, eats etc.  A very happy little 10 month old pup. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we can avoid surgery.

HAPPY TAILS – HELPED HIM GREATLY!
 
Baron Von is an 11 yr. old Shitzu.  I have given him GlycanAid HA for almost five years after learning that his limp was caused by an ACL problem.  The vet did not recommend surgery.  The GlycanAid HA helped him greatly.  After losing almost 20% of his weight since May of this year, he was not limping at all.  Unfortunately, a recent ultrasound revealed that Baron has a carcinoma mass in his stomach, liver, spleen and duodenal lymph node.  Palliative care was recommended. 
 
I wanted to send you this note and photo of my beloved dog and thank you for the help GlycanAid HA gave him.

HAPPY TAILS – FEELS MORE CONFIDENT!
 
3 yr old English Bulldog – two weeks on this with visible positive results and no digestion issues. If you have an EB you know the second is almost as important as the first when it comes to anything you put into them!
 
Our pup was showing a slight limp that would not go away 100% until we switched supplements to GlycanAid HA. Vet was like ‘it will go away’ and it did not until I did some research and dropped the cheaper condroitin for this one. The difference between Advil and generic ibuprofen may be in my head but my dog had no idea that I switched to a premium brand, he just stopped limping and feels more confident on hardwood and slippery carpets.

HAPPY TAILS – IT WORKS!
 
My 3 year old Doberman tore his ACL and had TPLO surgery last year in March. We started giving him GlycanAid HA soon after surgery. We also followed Dr. James rehab program. And now we have passed the one year point and he hasn’t torn the other ACL and has healed beautifully. Highly recommend this product. IT WORKS!!! Just follow the dosage it’s that simple.

HAPPY TAILS – ENJOY THE OUTDOORS!
 
My 9 yr old Chocolate Lab, Moose, was diagnosed with a small partial tear if his left ACL in February of 2015. The doctor suggested, in lieu of a surgical procedure, a PRP, platelet rich plasma injection, in the effected area. This procedure ran $1,000.00 for the first procedure, and $600.00 for the second. Over a two month span, with limited walking and no stairs Moose continued to favor the hind leg. I decided to try GlycanAid HA, as I had read some of the good reviews, even though the majority were from post operative situations.
Moose is a muscular 105 lb dog, so we give him 4 tablets a day. I am happy to report that, although we curtail any running, but do 2 brisk 2 mile walks each day, Moose rarely favors the hind leg with the tear. I’m not saying this is a miracle drug, but it has seemed to curtail any pain or discomfort affiliated with his injury. Since March 2015 we have been giving Moose his daily dose of GlycanAid HA as it has enabled him to exercise and enjoy the outdoors as he did prior to the injury.
Thank you folks for enabling Moose to enjoy his daily activities without pain!  Enjoy the Holidays and thanks again!

HAPPY TAILS – MADE LIFE TOTALLY WONDERFUL!
Smokey who will be 8 years old Jan 2nd, 2016 appears to be completely healed after suffering two ACL tears, one in September of 2013 and the second one in December of 2014. He has more energy than ever, which wouldn’t ordinarily seem to put him at risk of suffering another ACL tear, except that he knows no fear and he goes all out to catch a Frisbee or a ball going at full speed and jumping at the end to snag the Frisbee or ball. We couldn’t be happier with Smokey’s progress and I believe we owe it in part, if not all to his continued use of GlycanAid HA. Smokey has been on that supplement since November of 2013 and seems to be getting stronger every day. We want to thank Dr. J for his invaluable input in the rehab portion of Smokey’s recovery and for recommending GlycanAid HA.  We wouldn’t be without it and we recommend it to anyone who truly wants the best for their canine buddy.  I have to admit I’m a bit concerned yet when I play Frisbee with Smokey because of the fearless and reckless way he goes after Frisbee’s and balls.  But I’m confident he’ll continue to show improvement, though we couldn’t be happier with his physical condition as it is right now.  Thanks again Dr. J. to you and your terrific company for providing a truly remarkable product that has made life totally wonderful for Smokey and me.

HAPPY TAILS – BACK TO HER PLAYFUL WAYS!
Our cockapoo, Brandi had two ACL surgeries last year- one a year ago in October and the other one in January. We started using GlycanAid HA after reading about it in Dr. James St. Clair’s Recovery Guide. I was really concerned that Brandi would not be able to run and hike or go on long walk the way she always did because of the fact that she was 9 and it was a tough recovery because of the winter we had.  She was not walking with a normal gait and was having difficulty with the stairs. Well here it is a year later and no one can believe that she is 10 or that she had 2 ACL surgeries in the past year. She is back to her playful ways and I really believe the GlycanAid HA aided her recovery. This past summer she was swimming and hiking and hopping over logs on the trail as if she were still a puppy. I’m so glad I found this website and this product.

HAPPY TAILS – THE DIFFERENCE IS OBVIOUS AND REMARKABLE!
I discovered your products while searching for a canine joint supplement made with ingredients not sourced from China. Dr. St. Clair’s prompt, informative and caring replies to my questions impressed me. Unfortunately, I mistakenly ordered your GlycanAid HA when I meant to order the regular GlycanAid. So I figured I’d just switch to the regular GlycanAid after I used up the two bottles of GlycanAid HA that arrived. Well, that ain’t gonna happen.

This may be a coincidence (although I doubt it) but after being on GlycanAid HA for a couple weeks my 14 year old Aussie Karma…who had been stumbling, losing interest in food and generally winding down in old age (I thought)…began running in the yard, eating with relish and happily enjoying each day as a vibrant older dog. She was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor that has likely metastasized to her lungs which has led to some seizures and coughing but is otherwise a picture of health and continues with the improvements seen after we started the GA-HA. The difference is obvious and remarkable.

Karma, along with our other two Aussies, Tango and Skid, will be staying on GlycanAid HA. Thanks so much for a quality product made with quality ingredients and for discounting with your SmartShip auto-ship program. You guys rock!

HAPPY TAILS – THE IMPROVEMENT WAS ALMOST IMMEDIATE!
This is not something that I normally do, but I am sooooo happy with GlycanAid HA that I am compelled to write this email and tell our story.

Isi, our 18 lb tiny golden doodle at the young age of 1 year started holding her hind left leg up and taking a few steps on 3 legs when she got up from resting.  I immediately googled to find out what could be going on and read a lot of how glucosamine could really help.  I ordered a product that was widely recommended on the internet and made an appointment with our vet.  It was suggested that we keep her quiet for a few months, no running, jumping or playing and to start her on the glucosamine as she probably had a luxating patella.  Not an easy task with a 1 year old pup!  After three months it was not getting any better, worse in fact, so back to the vet we go. 
She then suggested that we take her to a very reputable surgeon.  We made the appointment and brought her in, she was diagnosed with a partial tear in her ACL and surgery was recommended.  Of course we felt terrible for our little girl and wanted to do what was best for her so we made the appointment for surgery.  The day before the surgery she became violently sick (she had a very bad reaction to he yearly shots which she had two weeks before.) The appointment for surgery was cancelled and I again I resorted to the internet following a link from the surgeons website to the Top Dog website.  I read all the rave reviews and thought there couldn't be any difference in the product we were using and GlycanAid HA.  I kept on giving her what we had and did see some improvement but any time she ran around the house sure enough she was limping again that night. 
I was getting near the end of the bottle of glucosamine and decided to order GlycanAid HA, the bottle arrived and I figured I would finish what we had before opening the new bottle but after seeing her limping every other night I bit the bullet and switched her to GlycanAid HA.  The improvement was almost immediate!!!!  She has been on it now for 2 months and I have not seen her limp for the last 5-6 weeks.  We slowly started taking her for walks again and she even had a few play dates without any issues!  I cannot say how grateful we are to have found this product.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

HAPPY TAILS – IT’S WONDERFULLY EFFECTIVE!
 
I want to tell you I've been using this product and it's wonderfully effective. I was turned onto GlycanAid HA by a friend who's pitbull  was recovering from surgery. I ordered it and liked what it did for my 13 yr old Sheltie who has arthritis in her joints. So when a neighbor told me her old dog had fallen and had problems walking again I told her about your product. She brought him over to see me about a week after she gave him the supplement later that dog was walking like he didn't have any problems. She was thrilled!.  Three people and their beloved pets have been helped by you. 

Thank you sincerely,

Our 7 year old, Sophia, an amazing Weimeraner had double ACL surgery when she was two. She has been on GlycanAid HA for over two years and nothing beyond well.

Hello Dr. James,
Thanks for your follow up email. Now this is already l think our third order and our small Yorkie, Misha, is doing quite fine after her surgeries. This December she will be 8 years old and she is so active and happy dog. I think that big part of her successful rehabilitation is also your joint supplement product. This evening we went to our regular walk on the beach and because of low tides the sand was just perfect for her and she was running around even faster than dogs much younger than her and also bigger. Such a joy to see her so playful and happy.  All the best to you and your team.

HAPPY TAILS – VERY HIGH RECOMMENDATIONS!
We have a 15 year old Bichon Frise that over the last several weeks, began to suffer some difficulty jumping up on the places she could normally get to, without problems.  We noticed that she just couldn't get the spring from her back legs.  We took her to our vet for a "Senior" checkup and they provided a diagnosis of mild osteoarthritis in her hips and provided a litany of medical solutions, from laser, weekly injections of anti-inflammatory drugs, Metacam, Omega 3, and then a passing suggestion of a glucosamine product.  Having had experience in our own life of the help from glucosamine, I began investigating products and found yours due to the very high recommendations and 5 star reviews.
Long story short, we started her on your product,GlycanAid HA, loading dosing of one tablet a day, beginning on Friday 21, Aug, on Sat after 2 full tablets she was moving much more vigorously and seemed to navigate much better. By Saturday night she actually jumped up on a chair that she hadn't been able to reach just 48 hours previously. By Sunday, 72 hours she was managing to jump up on most of the higher locations where before she would just sit at and whine to be lifted up.
We are now at 4 days and counting and she seems to be improving her mobility to where she was 12 months ago or more and we look forward to keeping her in this condition well into her later years. We will advise of her progress since she is our "Top Dog". Thanks again.

HAPPY TAILS – I’M A BELIEVER!
 
My 1 1/2 year old Newfoundland,  Tallulah,  completely tore her CCL, March 27, while playing fetch inside the house.   She tripped on a purse and got tangled in the strap and immediately began limping and “toeing”.  It was devastating to the whole family to see her go from healthy and happy to sad and lame.

We opted for TTA surgery on April 2nd and subsequent rehab with the therapy dept.  She came through it very well.   They released her to home therapy at 8 weeks and I continued to give her the joint supplement that I purchased at the vet’s office.  

At about 12 weeks post op I decided to try GlycaAid HA and almost immediately noticed a difference in her gait and activity level.   We are at 20 weeks post-op and she is stronger and more active than I have ever known her to be.  I’m a believer! 

Thank you for this wonderful supplement!  We will never be without it.   I’ve had family members ask if you make it for humans.  Lol!

HAPPY TAILS – WE LOVE THE RESULTS!
 
Hi, my name is Brenda Rubin and I just wanted to tell you about Sammie.  She’s a mixed breed rescue dog and is 9 years old.  Two years ago she came running up on our deck around Thanksgiving and she couldn’t walk on her right hind leg. This left us very worried because our 11 year old lab greyhound mix had recently had surgery on both hind legs at about a year apart and we didn’t want Sammie to go through that. Of course we took her in and the vet said it was important she get surgery before Christmas.  My sister-in-law told me about GlycanAid HA and I immediately came home and ordered some.  Within a month Sammie was showing improvement!  We were amazed.  She’s been taking GlycanAid HA daily and never needed surgery and runs around with not even a limp!  I also give it to my lab greyhound mix that had the surgery.  We will continue to use GlycanAid HA because we love the results!  Saved Sammie from surgery!  Thank you so much Top Dog!

Very happy with the products (Flexerna and GlycanaidHA). Sadie has a torn cruciate ligament. We have opted to wait on surgery for reasons other than money. She seems to limp less and even runs at times even though we would rather she not right now. Will be reordering as we have tried many other things including Winston’s joint system and this is the only thing that appears to be helping her mobility and pain so will continue to order. Also appreciated the quick delivery after placing order.

HAPPY TAILS – HELPED IMMENSELY IN HER RECOVERY!
 
Dr. J,

My 4 1/2 year old Lab mix Riley suffered a complete tear of her ACL in early April and had TTA surgery 13 weeks ago. If that wasn’t enough she also at the same time was diagnosed with moderate arthritis in both knees due to being infected with Lyme’s Disease despite getting the Lyme’s vaccine every year…which is a whole other story!
 
After surgery, we followed your TTA guide step by step and we started her on a name brand joint supplement recommended by and sold at our Vet’s office. While she was doing ok with her surgical knee, all the pressure she was putting on her “good” arthritic knee was taking its toll and she was now limping on both knees and was having difficulty going from sitting to standing. It was so difficult to watch her struggle and I was so disappointed that there was no difference using the first supplement. In the meantime, I kept reading all the good reviews about GlycanAid HA and decided it was worth a try…while being a bit skeptical especially after trying the name brand producing no change. Well I am happy to say that GlycanAid HA is amazing! First off Riley loves them…she literally looks forward to her “treats” twice a day. But more important GlycanAid HA has made a big difference in both her knees.
 
Riley is no longer limping, no longer has trouble going from sitting to standing and is back to her carefree self. The only problem we have is slowing her down until her final post operative x-ray in 3 weeks! Thank you for both the guide which we could not have done without during these past weeks and helped immensely in her recovery and the GlycanAid HA….we are on our second bottle and will never be without it…Riley will be on it for life.

My Dog Oliver had TPLO surgery on both his back legs at the same time about 4 years ago and I have to say the only supplement that I have him on is GlycanAid HA Factor and he is doing amazing. I recently had him on a diet to lose 15 pounds and now at 7 1/2 years old he is just like a puppy. I know between the weight loss and the GlycanAid he is doing the best that he can and I would recommend this product to anyone who is struggling with an dog with joint pain. I laugh every morning when Oliver moves his kibble out of the way to get to the GlycanAid tablets, always eats them first.

HAPPY TAILS – LONG TIME SATISFIED CUSTOMER!
 
Hi Dr.!
Thank you so much for your courteous email! I have been a long time satisfied customer of TopDog, for almost 3 years now, specifically GlycanAid HA.
I want to thank you for introducing me to GlycanAid HA, as I even called in years ago and was given the utmost best expertise and advice when first introducing my husky to the product. This product saved my Roxy, and transformed her life, so thank you! Prior to using the product, my Roxy had a mild ACL tear (in addition to already moderate arthritis setting in), and I opted not to do surgery based on her age (I believe she was 9 or ten at that time). Roxy’s arthritis starting getting worse, and her hind legs would fail her when hopping on the couch (which she wasn’t even allowed to do). I got Roxy on GlycanAid HA and followed the usage recommendation after calling in, till the day she passed this January  (not due to arthritis side effects, etc), she STILL bounced around like a pup (just slept more), and never once d,ave now continued to purchase GlycanAid HA for my mom’s maltipoo, Charlie.  And it has been his miracle worker.  He no longer grumbles when touching his back, and she gave him a new nickname – Sparky…because he is a bouncy new dog every morning now! He no longer walks, but RUNS everywhere he goes! So thank you!!! And I have now adopted a 5 year old Husky, and will be getting her on Glycanaid HA as well!

HAPPY TAILS – CHOMPS IT RIGHT DOWN!
 
Lucy is on a joint supplement – has been for 7-8 years – there was very little arthritis in the joint as a result… more recently she has been on your GlycanAid… we’re on the second bottle! She really likes it and eats it right up… getting what she needs in her has always been a challenge for a picky Standard Poodle – so it is a big deal for us to have your product – especially now – she chomps it right down! (It’s nice for something to be easy!) The upside is being picky has also kept her trim… and she has lived a life of a very active dog – with how this looks changing with her age…
Regarding getting back to her life after this big event – Lucy will have PT support from her canine masseuse and acupuncture as well… I am icing her 3 times a day, doing gentle massage myself, and very gentle passive range of motion as she is only 2 days post ob. …so I think we are off to a good start!
I’ve attached a picture of Lucy at the end of her time as hiking dog… she’s still a marvel – though our adventures are much more simple now… these are what we hope to get back to… nice walks on our back 40 trails in Montpelier, Vermont…
I’ll keep you posted as she moves through the recovery process and look forward to your email updates.

HAPPY TAILS – IT’S “DESSERT”!
 
Maya gets one GlycanAid HA twice a day. There’s no forgetting because she comes looking for it. It’s “dessert” following the breakfast meal and the diner meal. She’s our little rescue girl. When she came to Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida, she was in rough shape. Both knees were bad and had been for over a year, and she was in a lot of pain. She needed TPLO surgery. We fostered Maya following the first surgery in September 2013. While researching rehabilitation information, I found Top Dog and a wealth of informative information to help us help Maya recover. We switched her to GlycanAid HA early on following the first surgery and she’s been taking it daily since. It’s been almost 2 years since surgery number 1 and about 19 months since surgery number 2 and Maya is doing great. She had been in pain for so long, she was very cautious and afraid to run, so It’s been fun to watch her grow confident in her movements and discover she can run and do things without pain.

HAPPY TAILS – DOING FANTASTIC!
 
I’m skeptical of all the supplements recommended for my dogs hind legs. He, a 10 year old mixed breed, had three surgeries on two legs. The vet was not particularly effusive of any supplement, ” you can try them ” she said dryly. Dr. J’s knee surgery handbook was the only one available anywhere , and after following it the best we could, we decided to try his supplement.

I’m still as skeptic and can only offer my observation on our dog. Surely each dog will react differently to supplements. Ours is doing fantastic ! It could be the recovery time from the surgery , it could be his reduced diet. But I will tell you that we were using Dasequin and Welactin for quite some time with very little change in his activity level or use of the back legs. Now we use the GlycanAid HA and Welactin and can see that he runs and jumps like he used to before the surgeries. He is very active, has built back muscle in those legs and we are praying this is a permanent change for the better for the remainder of his years.

HAPPY TAILS – BACK TO HER ACTIVE SELF!
 
One year ago this month, our almost 6 year old girl, Lily had a TPLO on her right hind leg. I found Top Dog while preparing for surgery and doing a search on how to rehab your dog afterward. I was so glad to have the reassurance of other people who had gone through this. That’s when I learned of GlycanAid HA.

It’s been a year now of disciplined rehab for our girl, but I’m happy to say that she is back to her active self. All along we have been supplementing her with this product and so far the other leg is doing fine and we hope she will never have to experience another TPLO. Lily loves to take her “treat” right after her meals and knows it isn’t complete until she has her GlycanAid HA.

HAPPY TAILS – LIMP HAS DISAPPEARED!
 
Hi Dr J.,   Thanks for your mail. My dog Lily had TPLO surgery in Oct. 2012.  We were very thankful for your help with the recovery using all your suggestions for getting her back on her feet. Unfortunately she has a very sensitive stomach and every time I gave her the GlycanAid HA, she got diarrhea, so I kept my jar sitting on the counter, reading all the wonderful stories about how it helped other dogs.   She still had a slight limp after 2.5 years  but so far she was doing well with the other leg. When I had the feeling that her stomach was improving,  I started her on small doses of  GlycanAid HA about 2 months ago because we adopted a new puppy (5 month same breed lab/pit mix). They took to each other like a duck to water. Lily and Basti are wild players and she is so much more active, her limp has disappeared and she is using both hind legs now equally and we can see that she is developing more muscle on the TPLO leg, this after keeping her on GlycanAid HA for 2 months.     lily

HAPPY TAILS – VERY IMPRESSED!
 
Our last chocolate lab was purchased from a recognized breeder in Southern Pines, NC.   She died at 15, and a month later my job was eliminated.   She had no medical problems in her 15 years, which spoiled us.    It took us over a year to adjust to getting another dog, and this one, was pretty much spontaneous with an ad in the paper with a local family that we purchased in the summer of 2009.  Well..  in January 2014, her first ACL surgery cost $2200.  Her second, in February 2015 was $2800.  I will say VSRP in Cary, NC was spectacular, as was our own Vet who said that because Kona was so young and so big (95 lbs.) she did not feel comfortable doing the surgery herself and wanted her to go to a specialist.   After both her first and second ACL repair surgery a year apart, we followed the Top Guide rehabilitation guide and put her on the GlycanAid HA.  She has come through both spectacularly,  and is now back to chasing rabbits and deer out of our yard!  At her 8 week followup with the orthopedic surgeon, he was very impressed with how great she was doing!

HAPPY TAILS – PLAY AND NOT LIMP!
 
Before Pilot was 2 years old he had blown both his knees (ACLs). (Thank you TOP DOG for your rehab/PT program!)
After both knees were healed up he continued to limp and it was heartbreaking to see a 2 year old limping!
We tried a couple different supplements but it wasn’t helping…we tried laser and we tried more PT but still Pilot was limping.
Finally we decided to try TopDog Health, GlycanAid-HA Advanced Joint Health Supplement for Dogs. It has been 2 years now and it has been wonderful to see my now 4 year old chocolate lab play and not limp!

HAPPY TAILS – AVID HIKERS!
 
My family often debates how many years over the age of 10 our Catahoula, Charra, really is. What we don’t debate is that she loves the outdoors and the word “hike” sends her and our other dog, Tarki, into a frenzy of excitement. So when Charra had ACL tears in both knees as well as hip dysplasia, we were concerned that her hiking days were over. After two surgeries 2 years ago, we put her on GlycanAid HA-Factor. As you can see from the attached video, she is able to hike without discomfort and run around the next day without any issues. It’s too bad that we didn’t video her on the way up the mountain. We didn’t think to video her until after six hours of activity and on the way back to the car. We know that the humans bushwhacked 6 miles through manzanita and rocks ….so we know that Charra and Tarki easily doubled that with side trips up and down the hills chasing deer and rabbits.
 
Thank you for ensuring that Charra and Tarki age gracefully and that we continue to enjoy our outings in the beautiful Arizona winter.

I’ve had many complements and questions from owners and vet professionals about where to buy the same harness. I was happy to recommend your company. I was especially surprised with the amazing customer service I received on the phone. I had initially purchased the xl harness and it was just too big for Rico and the woman told me to donate the first harness and the one I needed would be sent to me. That does not happen too often and it was great to know your company cares about giving back to communities.
Thank you so much!

HAPPY TAILS – DOING AMAZINGLY WELL!
 
Dr. J,
Hi there.  We are very happy with the GlycanAid HA that we purchased. Our 10.5 year old Newf mix recently had ACL surgery and we have made sure that he is taking this ever since. He is doing amazingly well and is on his way to a full recovery.  We did have to replace a bottle as our lab managed to eat the entire bottle while we were at work but… we got a replacement and all is well.
 
I signed up to have it shipped automatically every 7 weeks so we are never without and I can get the 20% discount. 
Thanks a million,

HAPPY TAILS – ENERGY LEVEL HAS DOUBLED!
 
Thank you so much for all the information you provide over the web. If I may I would like to share my story with you. My son rescued a small dog from the park last fall. He was tied to a park bench, in the cold rain with a note attached to his neck to find him a home. My son, having grown up with many types of animals on our small farm could not abandon this sweet little being. He had frost bite on the tips of his ears. He immediately was attached to our family including all four of my cats.
 
He loves playing with his toys so much so that he was running in our family room while we were watching tv one night and all of a sudden he just got a little quiet. He didn`t say a word. I checked him out and he didn`t seem to have anything wrong. He was walking fine and all other functions seemed ok. By the following day he was limping slightly so we applied heat and ice therapy to his hip. It seemed to be swelling. Still he didn`t cry or wine when we tried to touch him. We decided to take him to our local veterinarian for an evaluation. X-rays revealed a femur fracture. The clinic gave us a couple of options. This was a horrible experience as we were faced with a financial dilemma. We love our animals but did not have the cash up front for the surgery and we were not given any type of payment options.
 
They took our dog, performed the surgery and then relinquished him to our local shelter. We were completely distraught. After pleading with our shelter, they realized our intentions and returned our precious Shadow back to us. The clinic had performed a FHO surgery and placed him on antibiotics and Metacam. No other instructions were given to us and we felt completely abandoned.
 
I didn`t know how to rehab this poor little animal or even understood what they had done to him. It was then I found your website and have been following as much as possible all of your guidelines for rehab. Shadow is now on GlycanAid HA and his energy level has doubled. This does however make it difficult to restrict his wanting to run. He was introduced to our hot tub for the first time this week and loved it. Every day we see more and more improvement.
 
We want to thank you for all the support you offer. The average pet owner has minimal knowledge on rehab care and the local professionals come at a very hefty price. Thank you so much for caring about animal and their owners. I don`t know how we would have gotten through these last two months.

I have been spreading the word about your website and the exceptional service and support you provide.  Again I can`t thank you enough for all you do. You are awesome….

HAPPY TAILS – TRULY AMAZING!
 
Dr. J –
Your product is incredible. I have a 8 year old, 77 pound dog that injured himself a couple months ago. The vet diagnosed him with arthritis and prescribed an anti-inflammatory and over the counter glucosamine. Once the swelling went down he had clicking in his back legs and still walked quickly to his destination to sit down. Within 4 days of taking the GlycanAid HA the clicking was gone and he became much more active and interactive with the family. Truly amazing.
Thank you!

HAPPY TAILS – FOREVER GRATEFUL TO YOU DR. J!
 
Dear Dr J-
 
Our almost nine year old German shepherd was having a very hard time going up stairs, and getting up from lying on the floor. We were starting to get worried, but later began to come to terms with the fact that he was getting older and that these types of things would become harder for him to do. He had been on Dasuquin, for about a year, but we never quite saw the results we had hoped for. And then we discovered GlycanAid HA. What drew us to this product was the fact that it contains hyaluronic acid. The reviews seemed too good to be true, but we figured we had nothing to risk by trying the product, only everything to gain. We started Bucky on 8 tablets for the first 3 weeks, and then transitioned to 4 on a daily basis. Not only does Bucky love the taste, and anxiously awaits getting the GlycanAid HA everyday (we think he believes they are his treats), and eats them without us having to sneak them in between a piece of cheese or peanut butter, we have seen a remarkable change in Bucky’s energy level. He’s been going up and down the stairs, so playful with other pups, and gets up off the ground with ease. Words can’t express what this product means to us. Seeing Bucky happy and so full of life is priceless, and I am certain that we have GlycanAid HA to thank for this. We are forever grateful to you Dr J, and are true believers in all your products, and will be without a doubt, customers for life.

HAPPY TAILS – MUCH BETTER WITH THE GLYCANAID HA!
 
Dr. St. Clair:
Thank you. This was not an easy fix for all his problems. He was hit by a hit and run driver April 1st of last year. Three out of his four legs had severe orthopedic injuries. The right rear had three surgeries, the last being FHO in September 2014, as a last ditch effort to get him as back to normal as he could be without amputation. (The total of surgeries was 6) I just keep telling myself, as you said, give it 6 months; so we still have time to get him a bit better. I truly believe that because of all of these orthopedic joint issues and fractures, he is much better with the GlycanAid HA from you and the therapy recommendations for FHO. Over time as he ages, he is only going to be 2 in March, this supplement will keep him comfortable as the arthritis sets in. I have no doubt that even though he is limping, he is much better off with your program recommendations and the GlycanAid HA than he would have been without them. I have signed up for the regular shipments.
Churchill sends a big sloppy kiss to you!

HAPPY TAILS – HE’S LIKE HE’S 2 YEARS OLD!
 
Dear Dr James,   We LOVE the GlycanAid for our 10 year old black lab Rupert. Rupert had 2 TPLO surgeries at 5 and 6 years of age and we followed your rehab program but because we live in Canada, at the time we couldn’t get your product.

The past year he has really started to slow down. Even though I gave him glucosamine daily and Metacam when needed, he lacked spark.

Well…he’s now been on GlycanAid for almost 2 weeks and he is doing awesome. He brings me his tug toy to play, races up the driveway after his walks and has a lot more energy. We are vacationing right now and my daughter is looking after him and her comment is, “Mom, what is up with Rupert? He’s like he’s 2 years old, he’s driving me crazy!” Hahhaha … A good crazy!

I want 4 more bottles as I am in Maui and will order some more today as the shipping is very decent in the U.S.

Thank you for this incredible product! He’ll be on it now the rest of his life.

HAPPY TAILS – RESTORED BOTH MY DOGS TO PUPPY STATUS!
 
I recently purchased DermAid for my two dogs Rosco and Maxx and I must say that I am impressed.  Having both dogs in the house one black and the other white is quite challenging in itself, but to have to constantly be sweeping the floor because of shedding is frustrating.  The hair was always accumulating in the corners and slowly would spread all over the house.  The DermAid powder that I sprinkle over their food has proven to be a miracle worker.  The shedding is so minimal now and both of their coats are so shiny and pretty that it seems to just glow.  Both products, the DermAid and the GlycanAid HA have restored both of my dogs to puppy status and I must say that Top Dog Health can count on me to always give positive reviews.  ROSCO   MAXX

HAPPY TAILS – NO MORE WALKING ON 3 LEGS!
 
Hello Dr. James,
Just sending you a note about Scotty my 4 year old Lab/Doodle. Scotty had TPLO surgery on Oct 16th,2014, he was still limping and at times walking on 3 legs in Jan. 2015. At that point, with your recommendation I started Scotty on your GlycanAid HA supplement on the 1st of Feb. Within 3 weeks I started to notice a great improvement in his walk and now running. No more walking on 3 legs. He is much happier now. The only problem I have now is to slow him down, but I’m not complaining.
 
I’m sending you a couple of pictures of Scotty then and now.

HAPPY TAILS – SHE LOVES THE TABLETS!

A few months ago I wrote to you about my then 10 year old yellow lab. Her name is Flopps. She had just had her 2nd surgery for her ACL. The TTA surgery was a little different than her TPLO surgery in 2009. The surgeon had told us to I follow your rehabilitation schedule. She is a pretty active dog and with this surgery and she was having problems adjusting her body, lifting her hind legs to get up and altogether looking very uncomfortable. We were at about the 6 week post-op stag when I wrote you, telling what was going on and you were nice enough to promptly answer. You told me to go back a few steps in the post-surgery rehabilitation and continue with the warm compresses and Physical Therapy and to make sure she was on the GlycanAid HA for her joints. If there was no improvement, I should speak to my vet.

It is now 6 months later, she is 11 and I must say, the GlycanAid HA has helped make a huge difference in her life. First off, she loves the tablets, she is on maintenance (she weighs 84 lbs) and gets one pill 3 x a day. Believe me if I forget, she goes to the cabinet and barks until she gets her “snack.” The difference in her hind legs is absolutely amazing. She now can get up quickly like when she was younger. What a pleasure to watch. We have a neighbor dog that my dog runs the fence line with in the backyard. She has no problems with quick turns and running back and forth. It’s a pleasure to know she is comfortable and the GlycanAid HA is doing its part. Thank you for introducing us the the GlycanAid HA product.

HAPPY TAILS – SEE HIS PROGRESS!
My Bichon is now 9 wks post-op ACL surgery. He started doing PT on an underwater treadmill around wk 5. He just went to his vet for an 8 wk post-op recheck and after looking at his x-rays, his vet told me if he did not know Bailey had had surgery he would not be able to tell he had had surgery because he had perfect alignment in his leg. I was so glad to hear that news. I credit it to the surgeon and starting Bailey on GlycanAid HA about 3 weeks before his surgery.
I have the best news! On the day after his 1st swimming PT I decided to take him for a little walk. We walked on grass and then we moved to cement and as long as we went at a slow pace all 4 paws were walking on the cement! We did the same thing the next day and he walked on the concrete. This morning after his breakfast he was walking on all 4 on the hard wood floor. I think swimming in the pool has boosted his muscles and his confidence. 99% of the time I forget he’s a rescue dog with a history I know nothing about. When the vet took the last set of x-rays at his 8 wk check he told me and I saw it that Bailey had been shot with a bee bee  gun. Because there was a bee bee in the x-ray. Having him on his leash and walking with me again is the best gift I could ever receive. We are keeping our speed slow for as long as he needs it to be slow. Slow is a speed he never used pre-surgery but he seems to be getting comfortable with it:) I’m still giving him 1/2 a Tramadol on the longer PT days. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly and I’m so happy to report Bailey is doing so well in his recovery. It is only due to all the information I rec’d from you and the GlycanAid HA supplement that I’ve been able to keep his recovery on track and see his progress. Thank you so very much.

HAPPY TAILS – THANKS FOR CARING!
Our girl is an 86lb Bernese Mtn Dog. She is regaining her mobility after being back on HA for the last, what 2 weeks? — we saw a significant decline in her when we ran out of HA factor. She’s had 2 TTA’s, the last being a year ago in November. Its heartening to see she can play in the snow again. Just 2 weeks ago she couldn’t climb the stairs, and she’d only been off the meds a couple of weeks. I must get on the auto ship program, I can’t do this to her ever again. We ran out as I was trying to find a Canadian supplier, as I was worried about the hassles of Canadian customs, but we had no problem with either extra charges or timing.

Thanks for caring enough to provide true quality ingredients. How is a consumer to know unless an ethical vet like yourself puts their expertise and knowledge behind a product. I can’t say enough how much it means to see our girl seemingly out of pain and jumping in the snow, like a Berner should be.

HAPPY TAILS – IMPRESSED WITH THE INGREDIENTS!
 
Dear Dr. St. Clair,I purchased the GlycanAid-HA after my pug-mix Barkley completely tore his ACL and our vet referred him to a surgeon to have it repaired. I took the bottle to the surgeon during our consultation, and he was impressed with the ingredients and enthusiastically gave us the go-ahead to give it to our dog. He had TPLO surgery, as well as repair of a luxating patella, that same day and it is now two weeks post-surgery. He just had his two-week postop checkup and is doing great–walking on the repaired leg most of the time now. I feel this is due in part because of the GlycanAid-HA as well as our wonderful surgeon. Barkley will continue on this for several months and then start on the GlycanAid Maintenance Formula. No problem in getting my dog to take the pills–he looks forward to it. Thank you Top Dog Health for a wonderful product.  I also want to thank you for the great information about the TPLO surgery on your website—what to expect and the guidelines for week-by-week recovery.  It has been a lifesaver, and I will continue to refer to it over the next several weeks throughout Barkley’s recovery.barkley

I am a loyal follower of Top Dog’s website and have purchased various products and supplements from Top Dog since my Westie, Duffy underwent Cruciate Ligament Repair surgery in April 2012 (approaching week 5 of his rehab and with Top Dog, especially Dr. J, so far so good).  I would recommend the products to all pet owners and the free advise from Dr. J is still quite unbelievable to me as he gives so freely of his time and knowlege when other skilled Veternarians would most likely not monitor a non-patient for 12 weeks free of charge.  I am happy that Top Dog sold goods that I elected to purchase for Duffy’s initial recovery and his ongoing joint health, it does ease my guilt somewhat in asking Dr. J so many questions.  Thank you.

Hi, there. I would like to thank you for your booklet, and weekly emails. I found answers for all my questions. I`ve followed your instructions about 75%, to be honest. Sometimes I was too tired to take Ringo out, or we had blowing snow, here in Calgary, and very cold temperatures. I missed some practices and walks after 8-th week, but before that I was really dedicated, 100%. Today is exactly 12 weeks after the surgery, and my dog doesn`t limp at all, mostly thank to you. I`ve spread your booklet among my friends, and in few dogs groups on the Facebook. I have a small suggestion for your future references. In my humble opinion, maybe wouldn`t be a bad idea to advice the dog owners to loose some weight on they dogs. Ringo had 110 lbs before the surgery, and I`ve reduced it on 95 lbs. He is a big dog, and I just wanted to minimize possibility to hurt his leg even more, or hurt a ligament on his healthy leg. Also, he was burning much less energy sitting in a house, and he didn`t need same amount of food, like before. He is slowly gaining that weight back. I forgot to mention he is a Yugoslav shepherd, the breed more than 2000 years old, and not recognized here in Canada. I`m attaching his picture day after the surgery, and one from the last winter. If you ever visit Calgary, please, don`t pass our home. My family and I would be more than happy to invite you for a good lunch. Thank you one more time, and in Ringo`s name too.                                           ringo2    ringo

HAPPY TAILS – AMAZED AT THE 100% POSITIVE REVIEWS!
 
We started our 8 year old Golden Retriever Brinkley on GlycanAid HA Factor in April 2013 and added our 14 year old Lab/Chow mix Ozzy during the summer of 2013. I’ll detail our journey for you since I think it really shows what the supplement was up against, especially with our dog Brinkley.
Brinkley was about 5 when she slipped on the ice in December 2010. Our veterinarian found no apparent injury after she was checked out the next day, and was walking normally within 24 hours.
In March 2011, we were hiking and suddenly she started to drag her left leg. We immediately took her to our vet, who thought she had partially torn her ACL. Treatment was watch and wait for about 12 weeks. At that time, she was still limping a little, so we took her to another vet who said she had a ruptured disc and just to wait.
By January 2012, we’d had enough and went to an orthopedic surgeon for a consultation. They also believed she had partially torn her ACL but were not sure. She was sent home on Prednisone to see if that would help.
Three weeks later, she came in the house and would not put weight on her left leg. We took her back to the orthopedic surgeon and she had completely torn her left ACL. She had TTA surgery and recovered fairly well (after a few missing staple incidents, despite a constant cone on her head). However, she still limped a bit on that leg, even months after surgery.
On Halloween 2012, my husband let her out late at night. At that point, she was back on leash restrictions just in case. She came back in and couldn’t walk on either of her back legs, just sort of waddled. We took her to the orthopedic surgeon immediately. He determined she had now completely torn her right ACL, and she had torn the meniscus on the left. She had surgery that day (another TTA on her right, and released meniscus on her left).
By April 2013, her right leg had healed well but she still had a left limp. We went to a veterinary research hospital and they went in to check the meniscus and release it if possible. When they opened her leg, her meniscus was gone (still can’t get my head around a muscle coming up missing, but they said sometimes it’s absorbed- crazy!). They said there was nothing else for them to do.
After this prognosis, with a 7 year old dog that looked longingly at her dusty tennis ball collection, I started looking for other answers. I found your product online and was amazed at the 100% positive reviews on Amazon. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a product, especially health-related, that did not have a negative review.  We started her immediately and within a few weeks, she walked so much better!
That said, she’s not able to run around and chase tennis balls or take long walks but she has much more mobility than before. She can walk outside to wander and eliminate, and run for a short bit. No active limping on a daily basis unless she over-exerts, and then a little ice (and if it’s a pronounced limp, a half Rimadyl) seems to do the trick overnight. Our 14 year old started on the GlycanAid HA Factor after his arthritis really started to bother him (and about 13 years after he tore one of his ACLs). He is also much more mobile and often looks like a puppy running around his yard.
Just want to thank you for your product. Brinkley especially would have a much lower quality of life without it.

HAPPY TAILS – THRILLED WITH YOUR SUPPLEMENT!
Skylar is almost at 12 weeks post-op from her TPLO and is doing fantastic!  At 8 weeks her x-ray showed complete bone healing!  She has no limp at all and has the energy that a two year old lab should have… maybe more!  We are thrilled with your supplement, GlycanAid HA and the TPLO guide was a tremendous help. I followed it as closely as possible until the snow and ice hit, and frigid temps hit, thus, slowing down our rehab routine.  We are still keeping her leashed outside so she doesn’t have any incidents!
We also have Sky’s family member, Sailor, who will turn 6 in May. I was giving both the girls Cosequin DS + MSM but have switched over completely to your product due to the amazing results we’ve seen after Sky’s surgery!
Thank you for such wonderful resources for pet owners!  I will continue to recommend the supplement and the guide to everyone!

HAPPY TAILS – FIRM BELIEVERS!
Thank you so much for sending this story. We are faced with a similar situation. First off, our beloved Daizy survived ACL surgery, lost 15 pounds and survived another ACL injury and was on GlycanAid HA. We credited GlycanAid HA with her ACL recovery as well as the step-by-step rehab program you offered. We followed it religiously. Unfortunately we lost her a week before Christmas when a embolism on her spine took away all use of the lower half of her body.
So having been through all of this we found out recently that our four year old high energy aussie, Dash has a torn ACL. We were stunned. We can’t make a decision about the surgery right now, based on all that happened to Daizy, so while he is on light pain medicine we have him on GlycanAid HA! His weight is fine.
We felt comfortable with our decision but the timing of you sending this article really helped us know that we are doing the right thing for Dash. We are not 100% opposed to the surgery just need time to think about all that goes with it. This article certainly helped our confidence with the decision we have made thus far.
WE are firm believers in GlycanAid HA. It helped Daizy recover and we know it is helping Dash now too.
Thank You!

HAPPY TAILS – CANNOT EXPRESS HOW HAPPY I AM!
I have a 10lb rescue. When I got her 2 years ago, she limped, held her back leg up
whenever we went for a walk.  It progressively got worse.  The beginning of this year the Vet suggested she have surgery.  I was not thinking of the cost of $5,000.  I did not want her
to go through anymore trauma if possible.  Did a lot of research, almost went for the brace.

I found this website and read all about GlycanAid HA and tried it.  Now 2nd bottle, months later she does not hold the foot up anymore, does not limp.  I cannot express how happy I am, no surgery.  I am afraid not to give this supplement to her. She still gets 1/2 a pill daily.

Thank you again for your product it is wonderful.

In early August this year my lab Katie was diagnosed at the same time of having a complete tear of her left ACLand partial tear of her right ACL. I did some research on the internet and found your product and decided it couldn’t hurt. One month before her surgery (TightRope CCL) was scheduled I started her on GlycanAid HA-Factor. Fast forward to the present time I have my playful dog back, she’s acting like a typical two year old.

My Vet saw her at almost 6 weeks  post surgery and said she was doing excellent. Thank you for all that you have helped me with and she will be on GlycanAid HA-Factor the rest of her life!

HAPPY TAILS – FULL OF HAPPY PUPPY LIFE!
 
Our Bailey underwent her 2nd TPLO surgery in May 2014. With the great resources provided on Dr. J’s Top Dog Website, this recovery went much smoother than the first. His step-by-step instructions with photos were beyond words helpful. The support was truly amazing!!

We immediately got Bailey taking GlycanAid-HA along with the Flexerna. I confess that I had read all of the wonderful success stories but was skeptical. Could my 10-year old Lab become a puppy again?? Well….She HAS become a puppy again!!

I saw dramatic results within a few weeks of her starting on these supplements! Several months away from this surgery she runs, jumps and is full of happy puppy life!! There is absolutely zero evidence of limping, and she is able to go from sitting to standing with no problems.

Do I believe in these amazing products??? YES, I DO!! Bailey is a believer too!!

Thank you all for this amazing product and for helping all those dogs who deserve a great puppy life.

HAPPY TAILS – PUPPY AGAIN AT 9 YEARS OLD!
 
Our Chloe went from acting like an old dog that no longer wanted to participate to being a puppy again at nine years old!  She had reached the point where we bought her a special bed for the floor as she could no longer jump up onto the couch with the other dogs.  Now, she springs upon the couch as she did in years gone by.  This is the first and only product that we could actually “see” the progress – immediately.  She is doing so well that I would not consider stopping the TopDog for even a day!

HAPPY TAILS – ALREADY SEE A DIFFERENCE!
 

Hello Dr. J.,   Our dog Akilah, a husky mix, had a badly broken leg when we got her as a puppy and she is now 3 1/2 years old.  Her leg healed after some major surgery, but it has never been 100%.  We have given her the GlycanAid HA for about 3 weeks and we can already see a difference! She is running longer and faster, and pulling harder (it’s a hard habit to break in a husky!) than she has in a long time.  I look forward to seeing her progress in the next coming months. Thank you for your product!

HAPPY TAILS – BACK TO FULL ACTIVITY!
 

It has been 11 months since my 6 year old German Shorthaired Pointer had TPLO surgery and 2 months later Extracapsular sutures added. If it weren’t for your Rehab guides, ability to ask you questions, and your joint supplement, GlycanAid HA, I don’t think we would have made it to full recovery.  He is back to full activity, though we are still careful.  I must say you making me aware of muscle mass was so important in the decision to increase activity.  We did the recommended exercises faithfully, for months.  It is such a pleasure to see him back to running, hunting and playing.

Thank you so much.

HAPPY TAILS – MY GIRL TURNED 15!
 
Kayla is a beautiful German Shorthaired Pointer that has been extremely active all her life. Unfortunately, she’s had a few injuries over the years but never really slowed her down.  
 
However, in October 2011, two days after the loss of my big boy, and Kayla’s brother Chilco to cancer, Kayla was tackled by accident by another dog while on our walk.  Kayla slipped, yelped and was hardly able to walk.  It turned out that she had torn the ACL in her left hind leg.  Her Vet was hoping is was only a partial tear and recommended full rest for my girl.  It became obvious that she was not getting any better so Kayla was referred to an orthopedic surgeon.  He diagnosed Kayla with a full tear of her ACL and partial tear of the meniscus.  The surgeon recommended the TPLO surgery, which I immediately agreed to.  
 
When I got home, I wanted to educate myself more about ACL injuries and TPLO surgery.  That’s when I came across the TopDog Health website and was extremely amazed that Dr. St. James had a wealth of information and was also offering a “free” rehabilitation guide post TPLO.
 
I then read about his product, GlycanAid HA-Factor.  I really liked what I was reading about the product but decided to do more research about what else was being offered out there as a similar product.  Honestly, I was disappointed that I couldn’t find anything remotely close to this product in Canada.  After comparing many available products, I came to the conclusion that the GlycanAid HA-Factor was probably the best product I could find.  I decided to order some so I could start Kayla on it immediately after her surgery, which took place just before Christmas in 2011.  
 
Kayla was 12 years old at the time and I had already had her on other type of joint supplement but never really noticed any real differences.  Of course, Kayla went through several months of rehab, hydro-therapy after her surgery, but when she started to walk without a limp, I should note that I followed Dr. St. Clair’s Guide to TPLO rehab, which Kayla’s surgeon was even impressed with!  
 
I became a firm believer that GlycanAid HA-Factor was really helping her.  Her “old” joints seem to be like new and no longer bothering her after exercising.  For me, it was like a miracle and for Kayla it was like she was given a new life!  Kayla has been on GlycanAid HA-Factor since and I have no intent of stopping.  My girl turned 15 yrs on Sept. 5, 2014 and she still loves going for walks, swimming.  Of course, she’s slowing down and can’t jump in the truck anymore but I’m sure she’d be in worse shape if I wouldn’t discovered this amazing product. Kayla’s Vet is amazed how she’s doing right now considering her age.  Kayla is also on medication for hypo-tyrodism, liver and heart condition because of her murmur getting worse but nothing is stopping her for enjoying life.  I made her a promise when she was 2 months old, that I would give her the best life possible, which includes the best care, nutrition and supplements available. GlycanAid HA-Factor is one of them!  Nothing but the BEST for my girl Kayla!  
 
Thanks Dr. J for caring so much for our furry family members, and sharing your knowledge & expertise with us.

Cinta our Shetland sheep dog had hip dysplasia caused by lack of development of the hip bone due to being the little runt of her litter.  We were devastated, she was so little at the time, only 9 months of age, and she could barely walk.  The vet told us she would always been in pain unless we had an excision anthroplasty performed.  They suggested I look up on your website for physio exercises to help Cinta recover.  Her surgery happened end of April, I printed out the 8 week plan and had it posted on our fridge.  The plan on your website was brilliant, she has fully recovered with just a slight limp which truthfully you would have to know she had it done to pick it up.   We are having the other side done February next year, I will be pulling out those pages again to help her recover again.  But thank you so much, I feel more confident for her when the next operation takes place. cinta 05.05.14

HAPPY TAILS – STRONGER & HEALTHIER!
 
Shelby just had her second surgery one week ago.  Left knee this time.  Right knee done Jan. 2014. Shelby is doing much better this time around.  I truly believe, that having put her on the GlycanAid HA supplement has helped her to be stronger and healthier.  The tear was 20% against 80% last time. That alone tells me she is stronger.  We will be leaving her on GlycanAid HA for the future.  I could not have done as well myself (76 yrs. old) without the manual that I also copied online.  Thank you so much for making things better for all the dogs and people.

HAPPY TAILS – Billie Says THANKS!
 
Our Golden Doodle, Billie had surgery on her knee about 3 years ago.  That’s when I found your web site and downloaded your rehab manual.  Thank goodness for this resource.  While the vet gave us general instructions, we’re certain Billie’s recovery would never have been as complete without your detailed manual.

Well, a few months ago Billie started favoring that same back left leg and we were sure the surgery had come “un-done”.  However, when the vet x-rayed her leg she told us that the knee was just fine but unfortunately she had hip dysplasia.  The vet sent us home with pain meds and told us there was little that could be done.  I came back to your site and read the testimonials for the Glycanaid HA Advanced Joint Health Formula and got her started on it right away.   Billie’s a big girl (84lbs.) so we were dosing her 3x a day to begin with and she is now on maintenance of 2 a day.  Within just a few weeks she was walking without a limp on all 4 legs instead hopping around on 3. What a joy to see her back to her old self.  We’ve given up playing ball because that causes her to make sudden stops and turns and we know that’s not good for her hip, but otherwise she‘s back to chasing after the chickens, herding our alpacas, swimming in the pond and all without the slightest sign of pain.  We are so thankful and so is Billie!

HAPPY TAILS – She LOVES It!
 
Thank you for your persistent contact and information.  Daisy my cairn terrier, is recovering very nicely from her cruciate surgery about 4 months ago.  Although she is much more active and is now jumping up on the couch she is slow to get up from rest.  When she’s been sleeping she has a pronounced limp when she starts moving. 
 
We have been using GlycanAid HA since her tear and I feel it helps.  She LOVES it.  Daisy takes her GlycanAid HA right before bed.  As soon as she sees the bottle she bounces into her crate and sits at attention. It is a great treat. 
 
I have added Flexerna to her morning meal for additional support.  My biggest fear is having the other cruciate tear.  Daisy weighs 16 lbs and I give her 1 tablet every evening.  Thanks for your support.

HAPPY TAILS – RECOVERED TO RUN, JUMP AND CLIMB AGAIN!
 
Little over 3 years ago my then, 2 1/2 year old Boxer, Belle, ran a Luring Course and started favoring her back left leg that very evening. When I got to my vet two days later, he said she either strained or partially tore her ACL, but the shelf action wasn’t severe enough for a positive diagnosis. We decided to give it a week or so with pain and anti-inflammatory meds before I made a decision to take action, which would be surgery.   I searched the web and found Dr. James St. Clair and TopDog Health and Rehab.  I read everything I could get my eyes on so I would know what I was dealing with and made a conscious decision to go with Dr. James St. Clair’s ACL Rehab Program and GlycanAid HA exclusively.  I felt that if the ACL wasn’t completely torn, I had a chance to treat it back to health with Rehab and a good joint formula.   I also knew a little about the HA factor, as I, personally, had been taking a series of knee shots (Euflexxa)  that contained HA and they were keeping me moving without pain or surgery.  It was such a positive to see that the canine world had the same idea of keeping healthy knees, etc.

I started out on the double dosage of GlycanAid HA and have continued on the maintenance dosage ever since.   Knowing what the HA factor has done for my knees, I am very thankful that I found it for my dog. My vet warned me that once Belle had injured one leg, she could have the same injury to the other leg because she would be using it so heavily while recovering from the first injury.   I was quite determined that that was not going to happen.   I attribute no further injuries to following Dr. James St. Clair’s ACL Rehab Program to the letter and continuous use of GlycanAid HA to keep her joints and connective tissues healthy.  She recovered without surgery or further injuries.

You just need to read the label to see the comprehensive listing of ingredients!! These are the same ingredients used on the ‘holder’ of-the-leash to keep our joints healthy!  Belle is back to agility training and competing, her Therapy Dog work…and just enjoying life, as only a Boxer can.

So whether your canine is coming off an injury, rehabbing from a strain or torn ligament, recovering from joint/ligament surgery or has arthritis, I would highly recommend putting the dog on GlycanAid HA immediately and checking out all the great rehab outlines from TopDog Health and Rehab.  If  HA is good enough for me, it is good enough from my dog.   In Belle’s case, it meant no surgery and a back-to-health and activity for her.  GlycanAid HA is with us for life.

HAPPY TAILS – BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!
 
First I want to say TopDog Company and Dr. J are the best thing since sliced bread.  My 7 year old black lab, Sammy, had an ACL tear two years ago and had to have surgery, which was a long recovery, but thanks to Dr. J and TopDog, the step-by-step rehab program was amazing and helped Sammy get back to herself.    I also purchased a  harness to help her get in and out of car, get up steps, etc. which was also amazing and reasonable.   The vet hospital that did the surgery, never suggested any kind of harness to help me get her into my SUV after surgery or the intensive rehab, that she needed.

A year later, she hurt her opposite knee (the vet said it was a tear) but didn’t seem as bad as first one.  So I didn’t want to repeat surgery because of the long recovery and she was in pain for a long time, so I decided to try GlycanAid HA and rest her leg.  After 3 to 4 weeks, she wasn’t limping as much and actually running around the backyard.  We go for long walks now and she can jump up on the bed like her old self.   I have refilled this 4 times and will continue to use.  It is amazing, I wish they made it for adults….I need it for my hips and knees.

Thanks Dr. J (I wished you lived closer….I could use you as a vet here!)

HAPPY TAILS – HEADED BACK TO THE WATER!
 
Pilot is a 3 year old chocolate lab that has had the TTA surgery on both knees before he was 1.5 yrs old.  He is a very active!  The vet recommended that we start him on some Glucosamine supplements.  Wanting to stick with a US product and something that he would take as a treat was not an easy task!  We had a hard time finding a product he would eat until we tried GlycanAid HA!  Not only does he think its a treat BUT his stiffness is better.  We have now been on GlycanAid HA for over 6 months and at our last Vet appointment the Dr. said his knees were looking good!  He is headed back to the water with a spring in his step and less stiffness!  Thank you so much TopDog and Dr James!

HAPPY TAILS – WALKING BEAUTIFULLY!
GlycanAid HA is an amazing product. My lab Bruin had TTO surgery on one knee last year and I followed your rehabilitation guides religiously and used GlycanAid HA. He healed very nicely but I got lazy about ordering and starting sending my daughter to our vet who’s a few blocks away to pick up Dasaquin. Plus we had a super icy winter — the snow drifts became permanent ice bluffs so neither bruin or his labby sister got much exercise. Finally spring arrived but Bruin’s gait was horrible. He kept skipping to avoid putting pressure on his good leg. I was certain he needed another surgery and I didn’t have the stomach for the cost or the recovery. My lovely boy also ate a sock last summer that had to be surgically removed to the tune of $5900. The vet said his knee felt swollen but did not appear to be torn.  I immediately ordered GlycanAid HA and your omega oil. I put him on the loading dose — in fact I’m kinda afraid to cut back because he’s waking beautifully. No skipping and laugh all you want the boy lifts his leg high and keeps his balance on the standing leg!

HAPPY TAILS – RESULTS HAVE BEEN FANTASTIC!
 
My Pitbull Lab mix had his knee surgically repaired when he was three. He recovered quickly and we were walking two miles a day at a brisk pace.  As the years passed he unfortunately slowed down. He is now seven and we were down to about a half mile at a snails pace. I really enjoy our walks and I was devastated by his slow down. It broke my heart to watch him struggle to complete our short walks. I had the vet prescribe him Deramaxx but there was no change. I decided to try GlycanAid HA and the results have been fantastic. As soon as we walk out the door he pulls on the leash and I couldn’t be happier with his recovery. Thanks for this great product.

SO HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS!
My 2 year old shelter dog, Taffy, a pit-boxer-lab mix, injured her rear leg by rough housing with a doggie playmate.  I took her to the vet (not a vet I would go to again) and she had x-rays.  Her diagnosis was a cruciate ligament injury and I was told it would cost $3,800.00 to repair it and it would take a long time to recover after the  surgery.  I decided not to put her through the surgery and try to help her repair her injury.  Well, trying to keep her quiet was pretty impossible.  I looked online and found some information regarding supplements that could help repair her injury.  I have another 13 year old dog that had that surgery over 8 years ago and it cost $1,700.00 then but his ligament was actually completely torn apart, not just injured.  His name is Niko.  He is getting old and arthritic and was having trouble getting up the two stairs into the house. 
 
So, first I tried a different supplement and it helped some but not enough.  So, I found Glycanaid HA online and decided it could help both my dogs.  I ordered the Glycanaid HA and am so happy with the results for both my dogs.  Niko now has no problem getting up the stairs and Taffy is walking and running without any limp at all.  She is completely healed and it is hard to believe she is the same dog that the vet said needed the expensive surgery.  Being young helped her too but I owe her recovery to Glycanaid HA.  I recommend it to anyone with dogs suffering with pain while moving.  Keep up the good work helping our pets. 
 
Thank you!

WORKED WONDERS FOR MY DOG!

My 5 year old golden retriever had CCL surgery on April 21.  I followed the TopDog Health recovery program, along with using the GlycanAid HA and she and I are already doing two 1.5 mile walks in a day.

This product along with the rehab guide has worked wonders for my dog. If it wasn’t for her shaved leg, you would never know she even had surgery. She walks without almost any trace of a limp. I’m so glad I found this wonderful rehab program, and the amazing supplement.

3 DOGS THE CHARM!
 
Our dog Bailey (7 yrs old)  had TPLO surgery in January.   We studied the Top Dog Health guidebook and website.  Then we ordered the GlycanAid product in hopes to speed up the recovery process. Bailey recovered very well!   Our vet was nicely surprised at her progress when we took her in for her follow up visit.
 
We decided that we would give the other two dogs the GlycanAid as well.  We started our 10 year old German Shepard on it who would limp a bit after getting up from laying down. We also started our MinPin on it.  She was on carprofen because she would actually favor one of her back hind legs and would walk around hopping along with the other three legs.
 
Since we started them on the GlycanAid in February, the Shepherd is no longer limping when he gets up from his naps  The MinPin has not favored the one hind leg and runs around the yard and up/down the stairs without any problems.  She is no longer on the carprofen.
 
Thank you for the great resources on the website and the miracle supplement!

THE DIFFERENCE HAS BEEN REMARKABLE!
 
One year ago, Bella had double TPLO surgery.  She had both legs done at the same time.  I was a nervous wreck!  We followed all the instructions posted by Dr. J on the Topdog website.  They were very similar to the instructions given to me by my vet.  Bella had been on Glyco-flex III before and after her surgery.  However, after her recovery, she still favored her left leg, which was the total tear leg.  She also had some trouble getting up and limped for a little bit when first standing. 
 
I saw all your stories about how much the GlycanAid helped so many others with dogs that had similar issues and decided to give it a try.  Especially since we were going into spring and summer and I really wanted to keep her active.  The difference has been remarkable!  I saw a huge difference after about 2 to 3 weeks.  She no longer limped when she got up and walked normally.  She started running and wanting to play with her toys again.  She started playing like she did before she got hurt.  I was amazed.  This product is just outstanding!  I will continue to use it and have told many friends about it.  Thank you so much for putting a product out there that helps so many dogs that we can trust.  Your website and your product is tops in my book!

MAC is a 3.5 year old Bernese Mountain Dog.  He is our “fur” baby, our big boy, and the love of our lives.  On January 31, 2013, he had TPLO surgery on his left hind leg.  Leading up to the surgery was a scary time for us, as we didn’t know what to expect.  I talked to 4 different Vets.  I had many x-rays taken.  I knew that both ACLs were going to need repair and I didn’t know what to do.  I googled and researched and came across topdoghealth.com.  It saved our lives!  I downloaded the TPLO Home Rehabilitation Guide and it became the bible to us.  I documented each day of MAC’s first surgery and followed the tips and exercises.  MAC recovered from his first surgery and had a second surgery on his right hind leg on July 4, 2013.  We didn’t feel as nervous for the second surgery since we had the experience and the “bible”.  I documented each day of MAC’s second surgery and compared it to his first surgery journal.  It is amazing how knowledgeable we became and how were were able to assist in our baby’s recovery.  Thank you for giving us the tools, tips, and confidence to help our dog become a dog again.  I can’t say enough wonderful things about your website, programs, and obviously the caring staff behind it all!

Our Dog Sadie is recovering from TPLO surgery.  She is 5 weeks out, and with the help of GlycanAid HA, is doing wonderful. We have been doing the excersises outlined in the rehab guide and she has been putting weight on her foot since we brought her home.

MOBILE JOINTS & PAIN FREE!
 
Hi Dr. J.,
 
TopDog was instrumental in Rosie’s ACL recovery.  This was her second surgery in the same leg.  This time it was a complete ACL tear and partial meniscus.  She had a recent vet exam and she was very pleased with her progress.  The vet recommended longer walks to build that muscle back up.  She thought Rosie’s knee looked and felt great.  Rosie still has a little “skip” to her walk and does not put all her weight on that leg when standing to eat.  However, she is completely off Rimadyl and does not limp much at all.  I am thankful that GlycanAid HA has helped Rose to heal and continues to keep her joints mobile and pain free. 
 
Thanks for you supporting videos and your great product.  Rosie thanks you too!

Happy Tails – I was SHOCKED!!

 
My dog Rosco was diagnosed with a degenerative disease that affects his hind legs.  He drags his left rear leg so badly sometimes that he eventually ends up with no claw.  I purchased GlycanAid on June 9th and have been giving it to him every day since.  I noticed 3 weeks in that I wasn’t hearing the claw dragging on the kitchen tile and his tail was wagging more, but the biggest surprise is when he jumped up on my bed and actually cleared it without his hind legs slamming against the bed.  I was SHOCKED!!! 
I know that he isn’t healed completely, but I do know that he is much happier and enjoys running in the backyard much more. 
 
Thank you so much TopDog for the positive effect on Rosco.  I will continue to purchase GlycanAid for Rosco and now for my other dog Maxx.

SURPRISED, AMAZED & DELIGHTED!

I am surprised (though I shouldn’t be), amazed and delighted to report that adding that third tablet of GlycanAid-HA has made the difference we were looking for!  Even in just one week – well, in fact, in a matter of days – we could see a difference.  Miss Be Haven, our 5 year old, 50 lb. Boxer/Dalmatian, more than a year after her TTA surgery, has finally been pain free even after running (and jumping in the air with joy just a few times).  Thank you, Dr. J., you rock, man! Thank God and Dog for your brain and your passion for the health and happiness of dogs!
We started her on a 4 tablet loading dose, and kept her on that for 2 months – although a slightly higher dose than your literature suggests, we thought it was wise because she was having real problems following surgery in spite of all the therapies we were doing with her. Then kept her on a 2 tablet daily dose – also a little on the high-ish side.  That’s been about 9 months now.  She was doing MUCH better, but if we let her run (or even worse, jump), then she’d be in pain afterward, having difficulty getting up and down and limping around the house. We were a little concerned about going up one more tablet – not wanting to overdose her – but that’s exactly what she needed.  She’s pure muscle, fit and trim and gorgeous, if that makes any difference.  

I’ve come to accept the fact that she’ll never be the dog she once was and have let go of the dream of agility competitions, but she can still live an active and pain-free life.  So she continues her work as both a service dog and a therapy dog, continues to take classes in various types of activities that don’t include jumping, and I can finally let her run hard through the fields and do her “zoomies” around the house without worrying that later in the day I’ll be helping her get out of her bed.  And if I’m really careful, I can even throw a stick – or a frisbee or a ball or a toy or a treat or a bumper… – and watch the pure poetry of her athletic body fly after it.  Just a few times, but I can do it without guilt so my heart can fly with her.  
Dr. J., please please please never change!

A PUPPY AGAIN!
 
Hello Dr. J:

My Bailey is making an amazing recovery following her 2nd TPLO.  I listened to you, gave up the Adequan and have started her on your wonderful product.  She is post-op 8 weeks now and is doing so well!  She has been on your product for about 3 weeks. I am seeing Bailey become a puppy again!   I am not sure if she is simply healing so well and is so happy, or if it is your product plus all the good food and love and attention that she gets.   It’s all so amazing.  We are  planning a vacation this fall to the beautiful beaches of NC.  Bailey and her rescue sister Abby will join us.  They love the beach!!

Thanks to you, your amazing resources and top-shelf product, we will have a great time!  Thank you for all that you do to help and support  all the critters and their mommies.   We value you!!

DOING THE BEST HE HAS IN A VERY LONG TIME!
 
I just wanted to take a minute and share my story with all of you.  My 6 year old black lab, Moose has had two ACL repairs. The first one was when he was just 18 months old.  The recovery was problematic to say the least. It took almost a year before he was “back to normal”.  Moose had his second surgery at 3 years old.  We found Dr. J’s rehab guide and followed all of the instructions except using the GlycanAid because we were already using Dasuquin with MSM. 
He recovered very quickly but he was still having problems with his first repaired leg. We just assumed it was arthritic and there wasn’t much we could do. We made the decision to try the GlycanAid just recently at 5 1/2.  After the loading phase we noticed a big difference!  Moose was not favoring the bad leg as much and would sprint across the yard or beach which he didn’t do before GlycanAid. Today was his annual check up and I couldn’t wait to tell him that Moose was doing the best he has in a very long time!!!  I told him about GlycanAid and he asked me to send him the information so he could recommend it to his patients.
Thank you Top Dog and Dr. J

Your encouraging e-mails and reminders as to what I should be doing to help rehab. Jed, got us through this rigorous post op rehab.  He is doing very well and has free run now of his 4 acres.with no limping.  The only problem was during rehab.3 times per day, 7/8 of a mile each he walked and trained on leash, he marked his territory, and thinks he owns the neighborhood and is very territorial.  When we walk off our property he is on leash. Thank you again for all your support.

In January I found a sweet little dog on a dog rescue website!  He was found abandoned in an elevator wrapped in a shower curtain.  I was told he had been in the elevator about 9 hours.  He had cherry eye in both eyes and a bad hip!  He was taken to a vet in Los Angeles  who fixed his cherry eyes, neutered him and gave him FHO surgery!  I called and asked about him and I was the only person who had inquired about him,  two days later he joined me and my two pugs in Nevada.  He was a month out from surgery when I got him and I had no idea what FHO even meant!  When I picked him up sometimes he would cry in pain with his hip!  I was afraid to hurt him!  He never used his back left leg and hopped around on three legs!  So after about week I googled FHO and learned what the surgery was!  Lucky,  I also saw Top Dog Health and the recovery program for dogs!  I read the entire program and started that day!  Thank God for you all!!!  My dog Tazzy is doing so well and uses his leg most of the time!  If he over uses it he will limp occasionally!  Your program is wonderful and I’m so appreciative as my new family member is happy and doing well!

READY TO RUN AND JUMP!
 
Dr. James,
 
I have a 4 year old Doberman girl who had TPLO surgery on both knees a month ago.  I started giving her GlycanAid before surgery and followed your recommendation for rehabilitation right after surgery. We got her to loose 15 lbs ( from 97 to 83 lbs now).
 
It seems that she is almost 100 % better. She is ready to run and jump, but we keep her on leash, and walking for 15 min 2 – 3 times a day as you recommended.  We saw her doctor this weekend, and he was very pleased with the results of her rehabilitation.
 
Thank you very much for your help, advise, and the GlycanAid product.

THUMBS UP FROM OUR VET!
 
Last year, we started seeing some trembling in our 10yr old German Shorthaired Pointer, Josey’s, hind legs.  We noticed that she would get up really slowly and seemed to be stiff.  At that time, I did a little research and purchased GlycanAid HA Factor.  Josey had immediate, noticeable improvement with her mobility and continues to benefit as time goes on.  She yummys them down like treats!  
 
I took the bottle with me to her last veterinary appointment and got the thumbs up from our vet. Last month, my mom mentioned that her two dogs, also getting up in age, were having some similar mobility issues.  I recommended GlycanAid HA Factor.  She recently shared that her dogs love their new “treats” and that she can see a difference in them already.

Hi Dr. James,
I completed your 12 week survey but wanted to share my Grandog Quinn’s story with you.
My 5 1/2 year old  English yellow lab, Grandog, Quinn had both cruciates torn when he had his first surgery in January.  The more recent tear was repaired because he had more strength in the other leg for post op recovery.    I was limited with rehab with the first surgery because he would become lame in the still torn cruciate in the other leg. The second repair was done 7 weeks ago.  He is recovering beautifully and I am now able to fully use your rehab program following the second surgery.  Quinn is also doing water treadmill therapy.
I tried conservative treatment for almost a year when Quinn was diagnosed with a strain.  It was no fun with his size and energy level!    I made an appointment for acupuncture with another Vet, Dr. Jerry Scheck In Hopewell Junction, N.Y.  after Quinn pulled the leash out of my hand and chased a rabbit, remaining lame without recovering like he did in the past.   He confirmed that the ACL was torn and Quinn needed surgery.   The second tear occurred just before his scheduled surgery.  The main reason I pursued conservative treatment was that I was uncomfortable with the invasive procedures of the TPLO and TTA.  I had pursued the fish line repair but Quinn was too big for that procedure.    Dr. Scheck  told me of the Fibular Head Transposition repair done in his office by  Dr. DeAngelis.  Dr. DeAngelis is known for his surgery called the “DeAngelis Technique”.  He is semi retired and travels to local offices doing the Fibular Head Transposition repair.  And this is only 1 hour from where I live!
Up until then, only the TPLO had been recommended to me by every Vet I went to.  I scheduled the surgery with Dr. DeAngelis and you know the rest of the story.
I certainly hope I made the right surgical decision but so far all is going great.  Life has a way of working out!
It has been a long New York winter with two surgeries.  Spring is here and Quinn and I will soon be hiking our together again!
I enclosed some pictures of Quinn.   His baby photo won a photography contest!  He is beautiful and as you can tell, we love him dearly.
Thank you for all your guidance.  You perform a wonderful service!

MORE ENERGY & FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT!
 
Hi, Dr. J.,
 
I ordered the Glycanaid HA when my  8 year old Cocker Spaniel was scheduled for ACL surgery in February.  He is a healthy, happy dog, typical of his breed.  I started the supplement a week after his surgery and he is doing well.  Cocker’s just aren’t designed for jumping at the back fence to talk to the neighbors.  Or maybe it is the landing they are not designed for.  Straight up, straight down, ouch.
When I took him to his vet, for his six week follow up I let his vet know that he was on the supplement.  He said Sammy Joe was coming along well and that he should benefit by staying on the Glycanaid HA as too often dogs develop some arthritis at the site.
We also talked about our older Lhasho Apso, Buster, who is 14 and has severe arthritis in his front legs.  He has a regular regimen of Rimadyl each day to ease his discomfort.  We decided to put Buster on the supplement as well.  What a surprise!  Buster is moving better than he has in years.  He is more lively and really gets into his short daily walk again.  He still doesn’t hear or see well but, his quality of life has improved a lot.
Both dogs have more energy and freedom of movement.  An unexpected benefit to be sure.

Dear Dr. St. Clair,
I am very pleased with the support harness which I purchased for my darling dog Charlie just before his scheduled TPLO.  It has been very helpful–he had a follow-up check up on Monday and using the harness I was able to lift him from the car seat and gently set him on his feet rather than let him jump down — I am not sure I could lift him without the harness.
I have meant to write to you previously to thank you for your Total Support Harness.  A friend ordered one for me when my precious senior, Zoe, began to have difficulties.  Zoe had degenerative myelopathy and eventually lost the ability to walk.   The sling enabled me to carry her when she needed to be carried, to support her when she needed to relieve herself, to safely help her up and down stairs, etc.  Zoe died on March 1, 2013, just two months before her 16th birthday.  I could not have lifted or carried Zoe without the support harness–she was a big girl.  Thanks to the support harness, Zoe got to enjoy her life for a little while longer–to have more treats, more massages and brushing, more winter sunbaths on her blankets when she could bark happily at the little dogs barking at her next door.  Thank you for the additional time Zoe and I had together–every day was very precious.

COME THROUGH WITH FLYING COLORS!

Shelby had her TPLO surgery on Jan. 13,2014. Shelby is a Aussie cattle dog/Siberian Husky weighing in at 50.1 lbs. the date of surgery.  


I give all my thanks to the manual on care downloaded free from TopDog. Without that I was in the dark as to how to give her the care she needed. Not affording professional help I used the guidelines given.  With that and adding the GlycanAid HA to her diet, we have come through with flying colors.


Our surgeon says she is healed 100 percent and she has no limping at all. She is now off leash for most of the day only back on when circumstances require it ( neighbors dog out, squirrel harassing her or the stray cats) to control the running.  


I am proud to say I am 75 years old and both dogs (Chelsey, Aussie/border collie) walk our mile or two everyday.


Thank you so much for all the help.

WORLD’S HAPPIEST PUGGLE!
My baby boy Buster is the love of my life, but things have not always been easy for him.  Due to genetics, at a young age, Buster required surgery to replace the ACLs in both knees.  In addition, Buster suffers from severe seasonal allergies and the only effective treatment for relief was steroids.  Needless to say, this remedy caused Buster to gain a significant amount of weight and limit his mobility.
 
Once arthritis sent in a couple of years ago, Buster began to limp, and I feared that my faithful companion would never be able to go on long walks with me ever again.

Fortunately that same year while attending the New England Pet Expo, I was educated about the natural benefits of GlycanAid.  I ordered some of the HA-Factor version of this product and started giving Buster two GlycanAid chewable tablets every day.  In a short period of time, not only did Buster’s lameness go away, but he seemed more energetic and was interested in going on longer walks.

I religiously give Buster his GlycanAid tablets every day which he enjoys as a tasty treat.  Please see the attached picture for proof of that.  My never-ending gratitude goes out to Top Dog Health organization for giving my boy his mobility back.  You have helped to make me one happy dog owner and have made Buster the world’s Happiest Puggle.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

CONGRATULATIONS!
Dock is a three year old Lab. Just had his birthday on April Fool’s Day. On September 12, 2013 he had TPLO surgery on his right hind leg. He had struggled with lameness issues for a nine month period prior to surgery. We tried several treatment options to try to determine the cause of his lameness. If wasn’t until we had the knee scoped that a cruciate ligament partial rupture became apparent. He never did exhibit the defining ”drawer movement” symptom.
We were home for two weeks post op when I accidentally found the Top Dog Health site and the wonderful TPLO Home Rehab Guide. This was such an amazing resource. It reduced personal anxiety, gave forward direction, things to avoid and how to do exercises the correct way. The support videos were incredible. Best of all was the interaction with Dr. J when a setback occurred.  At this point we ordered the GlycanAid HA supplement. Dock has been on it ever since.
We have had our challenges trying to get in enough walking outdoor this winter. The snow in Dock’s yard was over three feet deep at its lowest depth for most of the winter. We have done a lot of the exercises outlined in the guide in our rec room. The bone in Dock’s leg was healed by our twelve week visit. Since that time we have seen a certified rehab therapist to further assist in Dock’s recovery. Walking incorrectly to avoid pain for those pre-surgery months led to some compensation injuries.
We had our final planned program visit on March 31, 2014. The veterinary therapist measured his legs, watched him walk, and trot out. He had met the goals on the Recovery Check List.  “He strides evenly, no sign of a limp. If you took him in obedience classes now he would win.”Yahoo!
Thank you Dr. J for all your help and for developing this great supplement.  It has made a big difference in Dock’s recovery and he is so happy he has now been cleared to have supervised play with other dogs.
Thank you so much!

I love the dog harness I ordered.  It was a life saver in helping our 5 year old mixed black lab/border collie get up and down stairs when she had an ACL injury to her left rear stifle.  Now she has had surgery, and it helps me support her as she recovers when she goes out to do her business. Though I only use the front part as she freezes when the “bikini” part is around her, it was a godsend. Thank you for sending it so quickly.

Dear Dr J….

I’m so FLIPPIN excited… I started “Zoe” (my almost 6 yr old Siberian Husky) on GlycanAid about 3 weeks after her TPLO surgery (surgery on 9/26/13) & we JUST came home from her 8 wk check up & X-rays…. Oh my GOSH!  We… My hubby, Vet & myself are very EXCITED to report that he can’t even see a line where the bone was cut n moved. The healing is FANTABULOUS!  GlycanAid is AWESOME!!!

I’m so thankful I came across your TPLO video & website the night before my baby’s surgery. YOU have gotten me thru it ALL.  Weekly email with therapy guidelines, emails answering my questions & concerns, GlycanAid & Flexerna & ALL the AWESOME info on your website… You’re the BEST!  Thank you sooo very much.  I know we are NOT out of the woods by far & she just started limping on the other (non surgery) leg which scares me to death… but…. Her surgery stuff is all moving along so nicely & in my heart… I owe it all to you.

I’m really bummed that I can’t thank you & give you a hug in person but… Know that I TRULY do appreciate all you have done for not only myself & my Siberian… But to all who come in contact with you.

OLD JOINTS SEEM LIKE NEW!

Kayla is a beautiful German Shorthaired Pointer that has been extremely active all her life. Unfortunately, she’s had a few injuries over the years but never really slowed her down.

 However, in October 2011, two days after the loss of my big boy, and Kayla’s brother Chilco to cancer, Kayla was tackled by accident by another dog while on our walk.  Kayla slipped, yelped and was hardly able to walk.  It turned out that she had torn the ACL in her left hind leg.  Her Vet was hoping is was only a partial tear and recommended full rest for my girl.  It became obvious that she was not getting any better so Kayla was referred to an orthopedic surgeon.  He diagnosed Kayla with a full tear of her ACL and partial tear of the meniscus.  The surgeon recommended the TPLO surgery, which I immediately agreed to.

When I got home, I wanted to educate myself more about ACL injuries and TPLO surgery.  That’s when I came across the TopDog Health website and was extremely amazed that Dr. St. James had a wealth of information and was also offering a “free” rehabilitation guide post TPLO.

I then read about his product, GlycanAid HA-Factor.  I really liked what I was reading about the product but decided to do more research about what else was being offered out there as a similar product.  Honestly, I was disappointed that I couldn’t find anything remotely close to this product in Canada.  After comparing many available products, I came to the conclusion that the GlycanAid HA-Factor was probably the best product I could find.  I decided to order some so I could start Kayla on it immediately after her surgery, which took place just before Christmas in 2011.

 Kayla was 12 years old at the time and I had already had her on other type of joint supplement but never really noticed any real differences.  Of course, Kayla went through several months of rehab, hydro-therapy after her surgery, but when she started to walk without a limp, I should note that I followed Dr. St. Clair’s Guide to TPLO rehab, which Kayla’s surgeon was even impressed with!

 I became a firm believer that GlycanAid HA-Factor was really helping her.  Her “old” joints seem to be like new and no longer bothering her after exercising.  For me, it was like a miracle and for Kayla it was like she was given a new life!  Kayla has been on GlycanAid HA-Factor since and I have no intent of stopping.  My girl turned 14 1/2 yrs a couple days ago and she still loves going for walks, swimming.  Of course, she’s slowing down and can’t jump in the truck anymore but I’m sure she’d be in worse shape if I wouldn’t discovered this amazing product. Kayla’s Vet is amazed how she’s doing right now considering her age.  Kayla is also on medication for hypo-tyrodism, liver and recently on heart meds because of her murmur getting worse but nothing is stopping her for enjoying life.  I made her a promise when she was 2 months old, that I would give her the best life possible, which includes the best care, nutrition and supplements available. GlycanAid HA-Factor is one of them!  Nothing but the BEST for my girl Kayla!

Thanks Dr. St. Clair for caring so much for our furry family members, and sharing your knowledge & expertise with us.

We also purchased the GlycanAid-HA tablets and have doubled the dosage during this recuperation period.  We intend to keep her on a maintenance dosage of this joint supplement for the rest of her life!

I didn’t think this made sense as I have recovered from an ACL surgery and thought my slow PT was so beneficial. Why wouldn’t that help a dog? Your book has been a great source for slow rehab. My dog is so happy to get out and have his exercise walks as he was getting a bit of “cabin fever”. His 1 month check up was very good and on track. He likes your supplement and eats it quite happily.

Thank you for your prompt response.   I love your videos and the harness which I bought 2 days before my lab had surgery and it came the next day.  Excellent service.   It is better than I had imagined. Plus the fact you have the videos to go with the rehab book help more than you can imagine. The vet facility that did the surgery really didn’t show me much except a quick ROM with Sammy’s leg, nothing like you have.   I want to recommend your website to them to tell their patients…it has helped so much, they didn’t even tell me to have a harness to help her get in the car post surgery, I would have been in big trouble without it, she weighs 60 lbs.   I want to buy the joint supplement but you have a maintenance one and the HA, which should I be using now post 6 weeks surgery.  Also, thanks for the note about sam not being fully up to snuff in 12 weeks but more like 6 months, cuz I was a little frustrated when she limps a little now and then and her leg muscle still looks kind of atrophied.    I was worried.   I have already told everyone I know at work about your website and products.   You are an angel….thanks!

The harness has been a blessing. I am more grateful than you can possibly know for both the benefits it is providing my black lab Moka and for the thoughtfulness and generosity of your staff in providing an extra harness in case the size I ordered didn’t fit. In fact, though  Moka is 75 + lbs, the larger harness that met her measurement requirements, and which I had intended to order, would  have been way too large and the need was urgent. Per your suggestion I am donating the larger harness to the local Lab Rescue organization, who I know  will be grateful.

Moka and I were both  in dire straits when I made my call. I had recently had back surgery and she had collapsed in the street outside my house and had been unable to move. I had had to pull all 75 lbs of her into the house on a blanket by myself. In the fall Moka had been operated on for LP, had suffered a cartilage collapse, probably due to a preexisting and undetected infection, and ultimately had to have an emergency tracheostomy. Her recovery was hindered by the fact that her trachea was infected with a probably pre-existing antibiotic resistant e-coli and pseudomonas infection, and later by nerve degeneration, often associated with LP, that affected her hearing and all 4 of her legs, but particularly her front legs. Still the severity of the last collapse was very sudden. The harness as well as alternative medicine treatments for the infection have vastly improved her quality of life-and mine, for the short time we have left together. The harness allows me to take her up and down steps and even to get her in the car, where it still gives her joy to ride. Am amazed at the ease of control it gives me.

Have recommended your harness to everyone who will listen including both my vets, to whom I have provided the link to your site..

Dear Dr. J,

What a privilege it is to have your rehab expertise!  Your website and emails have been a great source of encouragement and information for us.  We appreciate you so much!!  Our 5 year old black lab granddog Lexie who lives with us had a total ACL repair/rebuild on March 15th.  We have tried our best to follow your rehab plan.  Our vet is so, so pleased with her progress and so are we.  It has been a long journey, of course, but we are looking forward to a great recovery.

Our daughter, who is actually Lexie’s “mom”, is a first year vet.  She didn’t do Lexie’s surgery, but she did diagnose the problem.  Your rehab program has been a real education for her, even though she is not here to help carry it out (she lives 7 hours away).  Thank you for your part in Lela’s learning!  Hopefully, she can use your information to help others.  Once again, thank you for making a great difference in our lives.  May God bless you for it.

Dr. St. Clair

Your program was an amazing tool to use to strengthen our young dog’s leg after a partial tear.  I did not follow the program exactly, but adapted it for her needs.  This was the only place I was able to find a physical therapy program I could apply to our situation.  Our rescued puppy was only about 9 month old when she suddenly went completely lame with a stifle injury.  She is a small (25lb) cattle dog/border collie/mystery dog mix.

Due to her age and size, I wanted to avoid surgery–the chances of a rebuilt knee lasting her expected life span seemed very low to me.  I consulted with the veterinarian who spayed her through the dog rescue group where we adopted her.  He advised restricting her activity for a week to determine if it was only a partial tear and then trying to find a program to train and strengthen her leg.

Your program was fantastic!  I used the activities in it like squats and walking her across the side of hills for 12 weeks before we let her off leash again.  She is now back to her active self and is back to running around the yard like a crazy border collie.

Thank you so much for making this program available over the internet!  We not only avoided the expense of surgery and the pain for our dog, but I think she will have a much healthier and happier life having avoided surgery through your exercise program.

Thanks!

While expectations were addressed at the Vet’s they were no where as helpful as having your instruction Manuel ( downloaded free) right at my finger tips to re-in force my memory as to what to do. I am 75 years old and love my dog to death. We are hoping that with the massages, ice, heat etc. and the addition of the Glycanaid she will keep on going as wonderful as she is at the starting of the fifth week. Your e-mails are helpful.

Thank you.

Hi Dr. James,

Our golden is  five months out from surgery and I am very grateful to have had the benefit of your wisdom and guidance.  Connor started a weekly rehab program in December using the underwater treadmill and other strengthening exercises.  We of course are continuing conditioning him at home on a daily basis as well.  He is now off-leash with me while I snowshoe for 15-30 minutes and doing fabulous.  Without your detailed weekly guidance during the initial recovery process and the continued support for strengthening I would not have felt as confident as I now do now to let him off-leash at this point.  Thank you very much for this valuable information and support!   I just finished giving a review of your  TTA book.  I have attached for your information.

“My golden retriever is close to his five month recovery for TTA surgery.  Although the surgery was a success in MN, I found the surgeon’s 2 page recommended recovery process lacking in detail.  It is very important to exactly know how to do each exercise and a 2 page summary just wasn’t enough for me.  I researched the web for more detail and discovered Dr. St. Clair’s very detailed TTA recovery information. I was so relieved to see videos of how to do each week’s exercise as well as the much needed support to continue through the entire process to enable our golden to recover completely.  Oddly enough, our surgeon just said, “use common sense” and we were then left on our own at twelve weeks.  This just didn’t feel right to me.  I  e-mailed Dr. St. Clair about my concerns at week twelve of letting my dog off-leash. Dr. St. Clair immediately responded by telling me that it was not ok until both legs measured the same in muscle mass.  Since our winters are very harsh I was concerned that my golden would lose whatever strength he had gained going forward due to a decreased exercise schedule during our icy/cold conditions.  I also found a rehab facility through Dr. St. Clair’s website in Oakdale MN which specializes in PT for dogs recovering from TTA surgery.  Our golden has been using an underwater treadmill and all sorts of strengthening equipment weekly and will continue for twelve weeks.  The muscle mass has improved and is near equal to the non-surgical leg.  We are now off leash in the snow for 15-30 minutes while I snowshoe!  I would not have known about the importance of continued rehab or the many exercises recommended if it had not been for Dr. St. Clair’s website and TTA guide.  I truly believe that without Dr. St. Clair’s caring help and detailed guidance for TTA recovery, our golden would not be as strong as he is now.  I cannot emphasize how important it is to follow Dr. St. Clair’s instructions completely to ensure that your beloved pet recovers to their full potential.  By the way, this is the first time I have written such a glowing recommendation for any product.  This is the real deal and you will not find another detailed TTA recovery explanation better than this.  “

 Thank you Dr. James!

Dear Dr J.

The T.U.S.H. apparatus is working beautifully for our husky, Charlie. The clinic was so impressed with your harness. They want to recommend it for all their TPLO patients. Our  St Bernard, Rollo, had his hip surgey (TPO) last Wednesday. I have the regular blue harness on his chest. He is allowed to walk for necessary purposes only. The blue harness helps immensely while taking Rollo to the bathroom .Thanks so much for your ingenuity! All the dogs on on your Glycan pills also. Kindest regards

Testimonial Categories: SUPPORT-RX.

Dear Dr. St.Clair,

I just wanted to thank you for your excellent customer service.  We first ordered a SupportRx: Total Body Harness (XL) from you in preparation for our English bulldog (Rooney)’s double TPLO surgery scheduled for December 18th, 2013.

We received our order on Monday, December 2nd and were very impressed by the quality of the harness, and were eager to try it on for size – but when we tried the harness on Rooney to see if it fit, we saw that the harness was too long for his short body (the front part went all the way to the back – and partially covered his tinkler, so the back part couldn’t be attached at all).

We sent an email to your customer service department in order to see if/how we could go about exchanging the harness for a smaller size, and were promptly answered by possibly the nicest lady I’ve crossed paths with in a long time, named Martha.

She was amazing!  She recommended that I get another model (not available on the website), but she was not sure if I would be able to get it in time for Rooney’s surgery.

I asked her to send me this new model, knowing that it was better late than never (I knew that I needed it for the next 2 months or so anyway), and she kindly did so :)

I also inquired on how I should go about sending back the initial harness, and was pleasantly surprised to hear that I could simply donate the harness to my local vet or animal shelter (which we gladly did – we got our second dog, a 4-6 year old German Shepherd named Mika) from a no-kill shelter, and we donated the harness to them).

We got the new harness in time for his surgery, and he seems to be recovering well, the TPLOs are healing nicely – although he did manage to rip a muscle in his leg afterwards (hopefully the harness will help us avoid a second surgery).

You and your team truly are animal lovers and have made our lives so much easier…and Rooney is especially thankful for your help!

Thank you for everything – you guys are the best!!!

Testimonial Categories: FLEXERNA and GLYCANAID-HA FACTOR.

I have been wanting to write and thank you so much for your 12 week rehab program as I had written you earlier re: Lacey have two torn ACL’s and not having surgery on either due to what people were telling us, her age was 8. We did not have the surgery but I followed your 12 week Rehab program to the letter doing every step of yours, plus ordering the Glycanaid and the Flexerna too, both helped immediately. I have also had a vet come and do some cold laser on her legs along with spinal manipulation.

This summer I have had her in the water, she does not like it, but I bath her and have her swim as well.

The swimming has really strengthened her legs as well. Yes last New Years eve she had already torn her right ACL and that day she tore her left. She could not walk we had to take her to the vet carrying her with towels and they put her on a stretcher.

I had to start my/your Rehab out by helping her stand with towels. It has all worked and she runs and plays just like a normal dog, barking and having the time of her life.

We go swimming at the bay and walk down the pier together no one would believe that 8 months ago she could not move and I attribute it to your incredible 12 week program. Feel free to use this anyway you need or want as far as for your worth, advertising or whatever.

Thank you so much,

Oh by the way we used the shorted leash in the rehab and we always used to use an extension, due to your rehab i still only use the short leash and lacey does not mind at all.

Jill St. Germain & Zorro
Testimonial Categories: General Love.
Dear Dr. St. Clair,   The vet who did the ACL surgery on my dog, Zorro (a very active 11-year old Siberian husky), recommended your website as part of his rehabilitation instructions. It was amazingly helpful and here’s why: 1) Written instructions regarding exercises are fine, but actually seeing them — as in your helpful videos — is extremely helpful. They were very clear and I was confident in implementing them with my dog. 2) You anticipated all the questions I had, right down to things that might seem self-evident. For example, when you suggest warm pack therapy, you actually say “Here’s what you can use…” I appreciate that you offered alternatives — a gel pack, a towel/facecloth rinsed in warm water, or, for a cold pack a gel pack or a bag of frozen vegetables! These are the kinds of instructions that people who have not been involved in rehab therapy before need to know. It sounds obvious, but it isn’t always. I always felt very comfortable following your instructions. 3) I liked the weekly prompts and expectations. They told me what I should be looking for so that I was able to measure my dog’s progress. I also really liked your frequent cautions and reminders that this is a slow process. It helped me to keep in mind that this was an ongoing process rather than an immediate cure. 4) The exercises were all useful for Zorro and also well within my capacity to do with her. I knew exactly what I should be doing, for how long, and what to look for. 5) Registering for your program was very easy and your website is very accessible and “user-friendly.” This is the best informational website I have ever seen, and I’m not kidding. I have looked at websites for different purposes, not just medical/rehab, and I was impressed from the beginning with the thoroughness, the clarity, and the usefulness of the information supplied. Zorro had ACL surgery 2 years ago on one leg and I did not follow up immediately with rehab. When we started a rehab program, it did produce startling results in terms of her return to normal. But our delay in opting for surgery in the first place and then in taking proper rehab action led, unsurprisingly, to her tearing the other cruciate about a year and a half later. The second time, we had her at the vet’s immediately after the injury, had the surgery promptly, and then started rehab right away. In addition to that, we also had your website supplementing our own fantastic rehab vet/team and through it had answers to any question that came up. I am confident that if I’d had this kind of support the first time around, Zorro might have avoided a second operation. We had the first ACL surgery done at Cornell University’s Animal Hospital (we live in Canada, but Cornell is the best veterinary care closes to us), and we were very happy with the treatment there. But we didn’t follow up with the rehab. We had the second surgery done in Ottawa (ON, where we live) and embarked immediately on rehab, supplemented by your program because the surgeon in Ottawa directed us to your website. I urge you to suggest to Cornell that they consider adding a referral to your website as part of their post-operative instructions. It would help anyone who is in this situation. I had no problems or issues with any of the information you provided, any of the instructions, or any of the presentation. It was all extremely well done. As I said above, this is the best informational website I have ever seen for ANYTHING. Apart from helping people recover their dogs from the ACL surgery, your team could be helping other people design effective websites. Thank you very much for all the information and for the assistance you have given me in helping my dog Zorro to recover from her ACL surgery. We will continue to do various exercises as part of her maintenance. And Zorro, at 12 weeks, is now pretty much back to normal. I am still careful with her and will continue to be, but she thinks she can do anything. With much appreciation,

Testimonial Categories: GLYCANAID-HA FACTOR.
Hello Dr. J,
Snoopy, our 17ish year old rescue beagle is recovering well from his torn ACL a little over 8 weeks ago. He started Glycan several weeks ago and appears to be more confident with standing on his injured leg. He swims about 20 minutes a day with some in the water weight bearing. Now this is a dog who is currently also on IV chemo for soft tissue sarcoma diagnosed over 3 years ago, but recurred aggressively a year ago. He’s responding and tolerating doxorubicin amazingly well. Given the prior owner’s wanted to euthanize him 6 years ago due to a diagnosis of Valley Fever (the vet kept him and treated him, we adopted him 6 months later and that remains under control on maintenance fluconazole), a severe bout of Vestibular Disease about 3 years ago at which time it was suggested to euthanize him as they felt it was a central vestibular disease. A few months later with lots of rehab he was back to his normal self.
He was on Cosequin DS before switching to your product to try and help the healing process a little better. I think everyone is amazed at how well this 17 year old is doing.
Thank you.

Without your detailed instructions, I doubt that I would have a dog in such good shape.  The best part for a panic button like me was the ”normal vs not normal’, as well as what to expect on a weekly basis.  If I’d had these sorts of instructions for myself after an accident where I required extensive orthopedic surgery, I would have not only been able to manage my recuperation far better, I wouldn’t have taken up valuable surgical and medical staff time with so many questions (and here, with medicare, answering my questions could mean backing up on people that had a higher priority).

Thank you again; your directions and information were brilliant.

SIMPLE CHANGE MAKES WORLD OF DIFFERENCE

Hi Dr J,

I just wanted to thank you for having the info available on your site to aid my dog in his acl recovery. His leg is completely healed, and he is doing great. During the healing time, I kept my Bruiser on Cosequin instead of putting him on the Glycanaid  because he seemed to be doing good on it. About two months after his surgery he started favoring his other leg, in which we found out he has arthritis. He was doing bad. He was stiff and could barely walk. When I attempted to walk him, he would sit after ten steps. I couldn’t understand, he’d recovered so nicely from the acl surgery. I didn’t want to keep giving him the Deramaxx, I went back to your site and discovered the Glycanaid HA. After reading your recommendation and other customer reviews, I bought it. Bruiser has been on it for a week and a half and there is already so much improvement. In fact yesterday we completed our first 30 minute walk without stopping every ten steps, he walked the entire time without stopping from pain! I am confident he will get stronger and stronger each day through the use of this product. Thank you so much, your advice and tools to help are amazing!

Thank you!

Granite, our 6 year old lab, had FHO surgery on November 10th..we are now about 3 months out, and she is doing fantastic! We finished her old joint supplement and a month ago put her on GlycanAid HA. She is doing about 2 miles of exercise per day, off/on leash..she is back to  chasing sticks, climbing hills and swimming in the Bear River when it is not too cold. We followed your rehab guide religiously and were very vigilant over what we allowed her to do…what an amazing recovery! Her leg muscle is almost all built back to pre-surgery level and she is again, our happy, robust companion..your website, I discovered by sheer accident, and I cannot express how wonderful it was! I fully give credit to the FHO guide, exercises, videos and weekly guides for exercises for Granite’s amazing return to mobility..she is on GlycanAid HA 2 times a day and is doing so well, we are nothing but thrilled! Thank you so much for having this site available.  We knew what to expect and this eased our worries and stress greatly! I would hug you if I could and Granite sends sloppy Labrador kisses to you as well for all the support to her humans! Wish you could see her! She is truly another success story for Top Dog!

Your rehab email series was a great help in understanding how to help our dog recover. We decided not to submit him to ACL surgery. One of the big reasons we opted out of surgery is our dog (70 pounds) is almost 12 years old and his physical stamina has been waning for the last couple of years. So we had no expectation that he could be restored to boundless energy and running around like he was one year old, like he had been until he was 10 to 10 1/2 years old. We wanted him to be able to resume walking but did not expect a return to top speed sprints all over the place, like when he was younger. We were concerned about the stress of surgery on him as an older dog.

Our vet predicted dire consequences, essentially permanent disability, if he did not have the surgery. I noticed, however, that between the recommended courses of action for rehab following surgery and without surgery, the rehab was essentially identical. And although your rehab was stated to be for post surgery rehab, it worked just as well, I think, for our dog. We got a second opinion from another vet who recommended that we give the rehab 8 – 12 weeks, then reevaluate whether surgery was needed. I think the results so far support foregoing, or at least delaying, the surgery when the dog can be constantly restricted in his activities and led through a carefully planned rehab process, like you provide.

He is back to walking normally with no apparent instability in his injured left rear leg. He also is able to do some jumping and goes up and down stairs now with no difficulty, although he has learned to go up stairs more deliberately than he used to. He is still limited in endurance more than he used to be — he will now begin to limp a little and slow down his walking after 50 – 60 minutes of walking, although I am not sure whether the ACL injury or his age is the main contributor to that.

So all in all, we are very pleased with his recovery so far and we are grateful that you provided your rehab series — I think it helped a lot.

Thanks.

Hi Dr St. Clair,

Yes, I am very pleased with my purchase of the RXBelt.  This is now my 3rd CCL surgery between 2 Chows in 15 months and after struggling with 2 other non TopDog Health belt supports during those I decided to purchase yours this time.  The 2 way support of chest and belly/back legs is working great as I can lift up the hind legs to help up steps and curbs and to get up when sitting or lying down, the byproduct also is I can lift the entire dog from both belts if I clip them onto the same center ring.  They are 50+ # dogs so picking them up without the support kills my back and having this capability really is a help. Thanks again for your advice and the RX Belt.  I use your Cruciate Ligament Guide by week as a help in the rehab as well to supplement guidance from my personal vet.

Dr. J, I was a veterinary surgical tech for many years and I’m very knowledgable in animal health, large and small animals. I’m very, very skeptical with it comes to supplements claiming big improvements. Glycanaid? All I know to say is WOW, WOW, and WOW! My 14 year old rat terrier had been stiff in his front legs and his hind legs were starting to collapse when he’d stand up on them. I know all too well the side effects of pred and I didn’t want him on it long term, and pain meds help, but they just mask. I truly wish I had taken before video of my boy. We just finished the 14 day loading dose and honestly I was not expecting any real results for 6+ weeks. We live in the country on a farm in a leash free world… I can’t keep up with him! He is standing strong on his hind legs for treats. He even brought the cows in at feeding time yesterday. He is attempting to jump up on the bed again and I believe he’s going to succeed soon! I wish all veterinarians would carry this product. I have also given my boy the Flexerna oil. The results are nothing short of phenomenal! No side effects either!! Thank you, thank you!! I know he’s in his golden years and we all wish they’d live longer, but now he can enjoy himself again…. and I have peace of mind knowing he is comfortable and NOT ON PRED!! Thank you again!!!

Dear Dr. James,
I am glad you wrote because I wanted to reassure you that your instructions were excellent!  It is precisely because of your instructions, that my dog is recovering very quickly despite having torn the first ACL just 3 months prior to the tear of the second ACL.  Her muscles were not as wasted as they could have been had we not been on your rehab regiment.  My dog actually was walking and slipped on icy grass!  The weather is so unusual right now.  We had snow and then several days later it was very warm and the snow was melting.  It was slushy on the grass, then it froze and melted again.  That particular day, there were lots of muddy patches and our dog just happened to step on an icy patch and simply slipped!  We were all very heartbroken.  :(
After this second fall, we felt that we had to seek professional rehab assistance (beyond your wonderful internet information).  We are taking her to a rehab facility where twice a week she is receiving laser therapy on her knees and muscles, and using an underwater treadmill.  Everyone involved is quite surprised at her fast improvement.  I, personally, feel this is because we used your methods to help keep up her muscle strength.  Thank you!

Your online course for “doggie acl” rehab saved lives.  I worked with a 30 kg lab for 30 days and your guidelines got her from “unable to walk” to almost fully functional.  The only problem is the somewhat odd gate resulting from the surgically implanted bands to restrict motion of the join. You were also the only voice online that was more concerned with the health of the dog and it’s owners than with pushing more exotic and expensive treatments. Thanks

Dr. J,

I have a not so normal Yorkie.  He weighs 24 pounds.  Back in October he had both hind knee caps repaired.  My Vet referred me to your website to get the MPL (Medial Patellar Luxation) Guide. After looking at the guide, I looked at other products you have available, and I found the Glycanaid, and the Flexerna.  I purchased both for my dog. He is really beginning to improve from the surgeries.  He is so eager to jump, you can tell that he really just wants to do it himself and no get any help from anyone. Once I received the products purchased, I gave my dog the Glycanaid, and he chomped that up with no problem.  When I tried the Flexerna with my dog food, he would not eat it.  I tried it twice with different foods and he didn’t like the smell or something. I called your customer service department, I left a message, and my call was quickly returned.  I explained the situation to her about the liquid Flexerna, and she was quick to assist me.  She gave me a refund in the amount that I paid for the item. I am so appreciative of the kindness I received with one phone call.  Most generally when you call any customer service department (excluding yours) they don’t care if you are happy or dissatisfied, they just want to get rid of you. Thank you for being a wonderful group of people who just want to help and assist in anyway they can.  I commend you for that. If I ever know of anyone who is in need of the services that you offer, I will definitely refer them to your website. Thanks so much.

Thank for the Home Rehabilitation Guide it is an excellent guide, much more informative than any information/guidance I had from my Vet.   My vet was delighted with Rex’s progress after his TPLO operation, it was thanks to your guide and supporting e-mails.  It certainly was a time consuming and energy sapping time for me, but worth every second.   A year on and Rex has just had his annual Mountain climb to a height of 3,000 feet, he was scrambling over boulders and going down steep ravines just like a mountain goat, he loves it.   At the end of the walk he was tired but with such a sparkle in his ear and wide grin on his face that said thank you, and he was glad that he was still able to do the things he loved.  He has a slight limp in his rear leg, but that is due to the amount of ligament that had to be cut away, it doesn’t bother him at all.
Thank you once again!

Dear Dr. St. Clair,

I just wanted to thank you for your TPLO pamphlet. SUPER helpful, and I wish I had it 6 weeks ago when my dog first had surgery. I’m working with Patti at the Canine Joint for my dog’s rehab, which is how I found out about you.
I could write a lengthy email about my experiences with the pitfalls and perils of rehab and what the surgeons don’t tell you, with humans and with canines, but I don’t have time at the moment. I just want to say you are SO smart to be putting out educational materials for free. An equivalent in the human world that I know of is the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Dear Dr. St.Clair,
 
I just wanted to thank you for your excellent customer service.  We first ordered a SupportRx: Total Body Harness (XL) from you in preparation for our English bulldog (Rooney)’s double TPLO surgery scheduled for December 18th, 2013.
 
We received our order on Monday, December 2nd and were very impressed by the quality of the harness, and were eager to try it on for size – but when we tried the harness on Rooney to see if it fit, we saw that the harness was too long for his short body (the front part went all the way to the back – and partially covered his tinkler, so the back part couldn’t be attached at all).
 
We sent an email to your customer service department in order to see if/how we could go about exchanging the harness for a smaller size, and were promptly answered by possibly the nicest lady I’ve crossed paths with in a long time, named Martha.
 
She was amazing!  She recommended that I get another model (not available on the website), but she was not sure if I would be able to get it in time for Rooney’s surgery.
 
I asked her to send me this new model, knowing that it was better late than never (I knew that I needed it for the next 2 months or so anyway), and she kindly did so :)
 
I also inquired on how I should go about sending back the initial harness, and was pleasantly surprised to hear that I could simply donate the harness to my local vet or animal shelter (which we gladly did – we got our second dog, a 4-6 year old German Shepherd named Mika) from a no-kill shelter, and we donated the harness to them).
 
We got the new harness in time for his surgery, and he seems to be recovering well, the TPLOs are healing nicely – although he did manage to rip a muscle in his leg afterwards (hopefully the harness will help us avoid a second surgery).
 
You and your team truly are animal lovers and have made our lives so much easier…and Rooney is especially thankful for your help!
 
Thank you for everything – you guys are the best!!!

Testimonial Categories: TTA.
Hi Dr. James, Our golden is  five months out from surgery and I am very grateful to have had the benefit of your wisdom and guidance.  Connor started a weekly rehab program in December using the underwater treadmill and other strengthening exercises.  We of course are continuing conditioning him at home on a daily basis as well.  He is now off-leash with me while I snowshoe for 15-30 minutes and doing fabulous.  Without your detailed weekly guidance during the initial recovery process and the continued support for strengthening I would not have felt as confident as I now do now to let him off-leash at this point.  Thank you very much for this valuable information and support!   I just finished giving a review of your  TTA book.  I have attached for your information.   “My golden retriever is close to his five month recovery for TTA surgery.  Although the surgery was a success in MN, I found the surgeon’s 2 page recommended recovery process lacking in detail.  It is very important to exactly know how to do each exercise and a 2 page summary just wasn’t enough for me.    I researched the web for more detail and discovered Dr. St. Clair’s very detailed TTA recovery information. I was so relieved to see videos of how to do each week’s exercise as well as the much needed support to continue through the entire process to enable our golden to recover completely.  Oddly enough, our surgeon just said, “use common sense” and we were then left on our own at twelve weeks.  This just didn’t feel right to me.  I  e-mailed Dr. St. Clair about my concerns at week twelve of letting my dog off-leash. Dr. St. Clair immediately responded by telling me that it was not ok until both legs measured the same in muscle mass.  Since our winters are very harsh I was concerned that my golden would lose whatever strength he had gained going forward due to a decreased exercise schedule during our icy/cold conditions.  I also found a rehab facility through Dr. St. Clair’s website in Oakdale MN which specializes in PT for dogs recovering from TTA surgery.  Our golden has been using an underwater treadmill and all sorts of strengthening equipment weekly and will continue for twelve weeks.  The muscle mass has improved and is near equal to the non-surgical leg.  We are now off leash in the snow for 15-30 minutes while I snowshoe!  I would not have known about the importance of continued rehab or the many exercises recommended if it had not been for Dr. St. Clair’s website and TTA guide.  I truly believe that without Dr. Sinclair’s caring help and detailed guidance for TTA recovery, our golden would not be as strong as he is now.  I cannot emphasize how important it is to follow Dr. St. Clair’s instructions completely to ensure that your beloved pet recovers to their full potential.  By the way, this is the first time I have written such a glowing recommendation for any product.  This is the real deal and you will not find another detailed TTA recovery explanation better than this.  ”   Thank you Dr. James!

Yes, we are very happy with our purchase from TopDog Health!
We purchased the harness and the GlycanAid.
We started to give it to our min-pin regularly and haven’t had to give her the carprofen in over 2 weeks! Yeah!
We are giving it to our Austrailian Shepherd/Sharpei mix who had the TPLO surgery and we think it is helping her recovery time.
We then decided to start giving it to our 11 year old German Shepherd cuz it can’t hurt.  He is not showing signs of joint problems but it can’t hurt an aging dog!
Your emails/website/video information has been a tremendous help and blessing to us!
Thank you so very much  for all that you do to help people and their pets!

No Longer Blue!

I am totally satisfied with the GlycanAid HA and how Blue, who is my seven year old English Lab, is doing on it.  We are six weeks out from herACL surgery of her right hind leg and as you said in your week 5 newsletter, these next weeks will be a challenge to keep her from doing too much.  We are vigilant in keeping her safe and under control. We will have a lot of time when Spring gets here and we are well past the 24 weeks of PT and getting her legs equally strong so as not to go through this again.  I only wish I had come across your website back in the early 2000’s when our first chocolate lab had leg surgery because of – for lack of better words- poor breeding.  Even now, with the orthopedic surgeon and our vet, the only instructions that were given was – no running, jumping or stairs for 84 days. I am grateful and thankful this year that you have dedicated your practice to helping us dog lovers with our children who unfortunately have to go through a surgical procedure.  With your information, products, continued encouragement to us and the availability to ask you questions has made going through this rough time easier.

LOVE THE HAT!

Back in June I contacted you about our 9 month Golden Retriever, Aspen, who was diagnosed with bilateral elbow dysplasia. Not a day would go by that she didn’t limp, and most days she would just lay around the house and not act like the playful puppy that she was. I asked for a suggestion on what joint supplements to put her on because the Glycoflex that our vet put her on was obviously not the answer. You had suggested another brand and Glycanaid Ha. My wife and I decided to try the Glycanaid Ha. Not just because of the excellent reviews it has received, but partially because of the honest response we got from you in recommending another brand as well. Well, here we are almost three months later and she doesn’t limp anymore. She is more energetic than ever, isn’t afraid to get off the couch, and even goes to hospital to visit sick children as a therapy dog now!!! We also take her swimming just as you had suggested. Thanks again for the honest advice and for the incredible supplement that has helped her. We know it won’t cure her joint problems, but it has restored a quality of life that she probably wouldn’t have had otherwise.

My wife and I can’t say enough about you and your supplements. Thanks again, Dr. J and Top Dog Animal Health and Rehabilitation!!!!

A WATER DOG GETTING HIS FINS BACK!

This is Morgan a Border Collie I rescued about 4 years ago and who is now 8 years old. He did dock diving competitions and did very well…working toward his National Championship. He tore his cruciate ligament on the left side and had 3 surgeries before we got it healed. I used the Top Dog Health Rehab Program and found it to be very thorough and useful on a day to day basis.  This summer he tore the right cruciate, had surgery and was not healing well with the supplements he was on. I went looking for another option…I had a knee problems and they had tried using Hyaluronic Acid on me…I know how much better it felt. I thought I would give this GlycanAid HA a try and it has worked. Morgan has been improving consistently and after his last x-rays his bones are great. Maybe back to swimming and diving soon.

I usually do NOT take the time to give review, but in this case I felt it was justified.

PS: He loves the taste of the pills and waits for them to be served before his dinner….that is very unusual for a Border collie…they are NOT food motivated.

Mike & Deanne Johanson & Kona
Testimonial Categories: Happy Tails.

Dear Dr. J,

On July 19, 2013, Kona had TPLO surgery on her right knee.  It was such a difficult decision whether to have this surgery or not.  This would be Kona’s third knee surgery (same knee!)  The previous two surgeries were unsuccessful.  Kona is an avid hiker, swimmer, and all around very athletic girl.  The pain she was experiencing indicated to us that TPLO was our final answer.  We knee the surgery would be a tough one, tougher than the previous two.  But we had no idea what was really involved until we got her home after four nights at the vet hospital post surgery.

Kona walked out of the hospital with a square shaved area on her rear from the epidural, a narcotic pain patch on her left rear leg, a sling, pain pills, anti-inflammatory pills and a list of rules and instructions.  Once we got her loaded into the back of the SUV, she then had a 2-1/2 hour drive home to our mountain community, curving roads and all.  She was in so much pain it was horrible to watch.  We got her settled in the house, but she wasn’t comfortable for days.  I spent the night on the floor with her trying to keep her comfortable.  Neither of us got much sleep.  I sure was questioning myself about doing the right thing for her.  She had no interest in food and not much in water.  I hand fed her for several days so that we could get her pills down her with something on her stomach.  Thank goodness I am retired and was able to just sit and care for my girl.  She needed that one-on-one care for about 7-10 days.  At about day three or four, I couldn’t stand watching what she was going through and after a very unsatisfying chat with the vet that did the surgery, I decided to go online and see what more information I could find about post TPLO surgery.  Thanks goodness I found Dr. J and Top Dog Health!  I immediately saw that this was a site that would help me and downloaded everything I could from him.  In the first video, Dr. J says “Take a deep breath, we are going to get through this.”  It was exactly what I needed to hear.  A vet that understood I was having trouble and fearful for my dog.  Dr. J took me through everything on what to expect, how to help her in every aspect.  I followed his instructions to the tee!  Not only did it help Kona, it helped me!  I was seeing progress and felt like I was an active participant in healing my dog.

Upon our first follow-up appointment with the surgeon, he was very pleased with Kona’s progress and told us to keep up the good work.  I told him the only reason we both survived the first four weeks was because of Dr. J and his instructions.  We started Kona on the Glycanaid-HA supplements at this point.  Her healing process seemed to speed up and she was using her leg more.  We were all housebound for the full eight weeks, no stairs, no running, etc.  Again, sure glad I was able to stay home and watch her every second.  At the eight week check-up with the surgeon, he of course x-rayed her and stated that her knee is completely stable and healing perfectly.  He stated “I wish all my patients were doing this well at eight weeks, keep doing whatever it is you are doing.”  I had printed up the materials from Dr. J’s site and recommended to him that he provide this thorough of a guide and information to all of his TPLO patients, it is what saved Kona and I.  He assured us that he would, and I truly hope that he does.  We needed this information up front, not finding it on my own.

As of today we are almost five months into Kona’s recovery time.  She still pulls her leg up occasionally when she trots, but bears full weight on it most of the time.  She hiked with me for two miles and did great!  She swims on a regular basis too, but no more bounding into the water, nice slowly emerging is the goal.  Because Kona is 7 years old, has had two previous knee surgeries, and some hip dysphasia on the right side, she will never be 100%.  We were just hoping to get her out of pain and able to continue to do the sports that she loves.  With Top Dog Health and Dr. J, we have achieved that goal.  Words alone could never express our gratitude for providing the very best advice, video demonstrations, and joint supplement on the market. I am convinced that the outcome for Kona would not have been as positive without the help and guidance provided by Top Dog Health.  I wish everyone that out there that is considering TPLO surgery for their pet, or has had it, contact Dr. J and Top Dog Health now.  No matter how great the surgeon and/or vet, this program is the answer to an informative surgical decision and successful recovery!

Again Many Thanks for all that you have provided to our family!

Hey Doctor J,

I just wanted to let you know that Smokey is in his 4th month since his CCL surgery and he is doing very well.  I’m trying to be cautious about letting him do too much too soon, but he is now taking short walks with me and running some without any negative results.  He has been on GlycanAid Ha for almost three months now and he likes the supplement and is moving without any noticeable limp at all.  Neither he nor I can wait until he can retrieve balls and play Frisbee again, which he dearly loves.  He is a very happy dog now that he can move around a lot more without the accompanying pain that was present following his surgery.  Thanks again for all the good advice on your web site and for being instrumental in getting him on the GlycanAid Ha.  Smokey thanks you as well.

Our Cooper is a Labradoodle. He will be 4 in February and weighs just about 82 lbs.  He is great now running, hopping, dashing, darting, and his favorite swimming. Just about a year and a half ago he pulled his ACL on the right  side and the cushion in the left had rolled up and he could not extend  his leg straight. The surgeries went good and repairs were done and things were going good until the right side repairs snapped and we needed to start all over again with another surgery and rehabilitation. It was at this time that I learned about GlycanAid HA and the wonderful staff at Top Dog. Dr. James St. Clair always had time to send information about Cooper’s rehabilitation and answer question. He was concerned and I could tell that he really wanted to follow Cooper’s progress. Cooper will need to take GlycanAid HA probably for the rest of his happy, healthy, life and I know because of this product he healed strong, quickly and is not in pain. This is a picture of Cooper from the past summer. It was the first summer back into the pool after his surgeries and rehabilitation. As you can see no problems here! TOP DOG YOU ARE GREAT.

I would just like to take a moment to thank you for your unmatched help in the recovery of my Boxer, Pago. He tore his ACL and Meniscus last January running in the snow.  He had TPLO surgery with some instructions; however, your information on your website was invaluable.  He and my other dog are both on Glycanaid.  You gave us step by step instructions to his rehabilitation and it’s one year later with no problems. Pago is 11 years old and is slowing down, but for a Boxer it’s unbelievable!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  We couldn’t have done it without your helpful website.  We live 2 hours from Seattle and required a ferry service to get to the clinic; so it was prohibitive for us to go there for rehab.  You gave us a workable situation at home.

I have two dogs. Max is in his 7th week of recovery from TPLO surgery. He is doing very well. He started taking GlycanAid HA-Factor right after his surgery. I feel it has helped his recovery a great deal.
Our other dog Jake started at the same time. In the past he has often come up lame on his right front leg. I have not seen that limp since the third week after he started taking Glycan Aid HA-Factor. Needless to say I will keep both dogs on GlycanAid HA-Factor.

Dr. St. Clair: My 6 yr old black lab, sammy, had an ACL repair 2 weeks ago and thanks to your body harness, her rehab has gone very well.    Sammy weighs 60 lbs and to help her get in and out of the house to go to the bathroom was so much easier with the harness.  It helped to lift her back end so she didn’t have to put pressure on her leg.  I use it also to walk her and keep her close iike you show on the videos to she has to use her leg.   Those rehab videos are the best.    The vet hospital didn’t give me much as far as rehab instruction.   it is so nice to be able to visually see what I have to do to help sammy get back to herself.   Thanks so much for your great product and videos…I have been telling everyone I know about them.   Also the price of the harness was very reasonable and you had it shipped the next day after I ordered, now that is what I call service.   You can can use my testimonial in your ads if you want.

Testimonial Categories: TPLO.

Thank you so much for your response Dr. J!  My wife and I (along with the surgeon) believe that our little girl had already torn her ACL prior to the first surgery.  She is a Pit mix, and she is our second of this mix which from what I understand are predisposed to this condition.  We actually just had her 2nd TPLO surgery last Monday(1/9) and thanks to your rehab program, she is doing wonderful on her left leg(the first surgery on October 6th).  After the surgery, the surgeon informed us that her meniscus was partially torn on her right leg, and the ACL was completely unattached but she had quite a bit of scar tissue so that basically confirms our thinking that it was already torn, just not as bad as the left side since she was not limping on the right at all prior to the first surgery.  I honestly would have purchased your supplement during her recovery, but I didn’t know about your site until after the surgery, and after I stocked up on the supplement “Dasuquin” which our regular vet and our surgeon spoke highly of.  Regardless, she is doing great already on the right leg after the recent surgery, and she is already weight bearing about 50% or more on the leg.  During the surgery, we also requested that the surgeon remove the plate and screws from the left side while she was under anesthesia to help avoid any future problems down the road.

Sorry for the long email, but I also want to thank you for all of your efforts in making the recovery so structured and extremely helpful.  It is great to see people in any profession nowadays to have as much passion and pride in their work as you clearly show.

Testimonial Categories: TPLO.

Hi Dr. James,

I wanted to tell you that your recovery guide was extremely  beneficial to me and my husband as we rehabbed Bayle after her first surgery (tightrope)  and then her second (TPLO).  Her second knee went out about 6 months after the first. It’s unfortunate, but know that this happens a lot.

She is doing extremely well and her legs are very stable.  I would have preferred the vet did TPLOs on both legs, but we shall see as time wears on . From what I understand, the tightrope procedure usually was done on smaller dogs, but is now showing durability and strength in larger, active dogs.

I certainly will go back to using your joint product – appreciate the discount coupon.  Again, thanks for your help – the information you provided was right on  to get our Baylee back on track and am sure it will help others who encounter same situation.

Thanks again, take care,

Testimonial Categories: GLYCANAID-HA FACTOR and TTA.

Dear Dr. J,

I just wanted to say that you are so admired for your dedication and caring.  Your informative messages are always appreciated and they are a great learning experience, especially in your presentation.

I am so glad that I found your site over a year ago while gathering insight on the different surgical procedures for a cruciate ligament tear and after reading your informative explanation of the differences in the procedures was greatly relieved by the choice made to have TTA done.  The best part was your detailed day to day recovery instructions, which I was truly so gratified to have, in the recovery of my Standard Poodle…Deedee, who was only 1 1/2 at the time.  And I referred my vet to your site as well as showing him your recovery instructions….he in turn has referred several of his patients…I also gave a copy to the surgeon!

Unfortunately after the first month she somehow threw one of the screws out and cracked a bone, which put us back a little, but the surgeon felt that since the cage was still in place her bone would hopefully heal around it and we would not need further surgery.  She did heal …no further surgery but she does have a “funny” gate…she throws that “knee” out while walking, but we have built that muscle up.  We go for good walks, but I have hesitated to let her run loose in the park and I’m sure that as she ages will see the effects of arthritis.

Which brings me to another wonderful compliment to you….the GlycanAid is a terrific supplement.  Our other girl…Willa who will be 5 in October is our rescued girl and she has bad hips.  Both of our girls are on the GlycanAid.  One quick question if you are able to respond, the girls are suffering from allergies and are very itchy, as we are trying to eliminate all kinds of possibilities, you haven’t had anyone that’s had an allergic reaction have you?

I could go on but I’m sure you get so many wonderful testimonials from everyone who discovers you, that you don’t possibly have time to read all of them.  Just also wanted to thank you so much for your personal note.

Testimonial Categories: SUPPORT-RX.

Hello Dr. St. Clair,

Yes, I am very pleased with the sling. At first I thought is was too large, but now agree to the sizing. I needed to get use to the fact of it being loose and cradling my dog, instead of tightly encompassing. Allagash, 80 lb choc & 3 yrs on 2/14, now post-op day 4 of TPLO surgery, has done very well with the recovery with the sling. She stands still to have it put on and waits at the 2 stairs until I have a good grip on the chest and abdomen straps. I can easily lift her off the ground, enough to move her along or change her directions. I am of petite stature of 5’1″ and do not workout with weights! (Yet I had been walking up to 3 miles, daily, for years, but not with Allagash.)  I feel comfortable and confident to help her through her rehab appropriately. The sling has been a God-send.

Thank you.

Testimonial Categories: CRUCIATE.

I downloaded your CCL rehabilitation information a while ago.  Our dog did havesurgery 5 weeks ago.  I took the information to share with the vet doing surgery. He looked it over, said that he “doesn’t want anyone messing with his surgical repair and that dogs do their own physical therapy.”

So… I listened to his comments with a grain of salt, and when my dog came home (we boarded him with the vet for the first 4 weeks, as we knew the only way we could keep him quiet was to have him heavily sedated – not an option in my mind) I began following your protocol.  He is doing very well, getting stronger, and does not seem to have much pain. As a physical therapist, I know people don’t always follow our recommendations and often have poor outcomes, which they blame on the surgeon. I think you need to start the education process for vets in veterinary school.  It’s difficult to get people to change when they feel what they have been doing is working Any way, thanks so much for the information

Dr. J, thank you so much for all of the information and the wonderful products you have developed!  I was totally lost as to my dogs ACL surgery, I had never heard of it.  So, I got online and found your website!  I have also joined your facebook page and am so thankful for the family I found there!  I was very nervous about the surgery and what to do, but I feel so much better now with the added knowledge and the many friends who have gone through the same thing with their dogs.  Thank you!

When I found out my dog needed ACL surgery I went searching the Internet and found the TopDog website. There was a wealth of material that provided me with the information and confidence to give my pet meaningful rehab treatments. I especially found the booklet with the 12-week program invaluable with just the right amount of detail. I also took full advantage of the video examples of rehab procedures I’d never done, products that helped me lift her, and supplements especially designed for joint healing. It was far beyond what I received from our vet and made me feel inspired and confident to give my dog the post-surgery care she needed. As it turns out, my vet was so pleased with my dog’s quick healing, and interested in this website in order to encourage people to really give their pets the time they need to heal from this kind of surgery. He plans to refer the website to other people whose dogs will be having this surgery. I imagine TopDog’s wealth of information and support has saved many a dog from re-injury due to inadequate or improper post-surgical care.

Testimonial Categories: FHO.

Dr. James St. Clair at TopDog Animal Health & Rehabilitation,

I would just like to first off give you a HUGE Thank You from myself (michelle vickers) and my dog Spud (4 year old Louisiana Catahoula Leopard). Thanks to your Home rehabilitation guide & step by step process we have had a huge improvement in only 1 weeks time. We started this process 2 weeks after Spuds FHO surgery due to lack of improvements and frustration. I cannot explain how happy I am that I found your guide out there on the internet (and for FREE).

I began looking for help 2 weeks after Spuds surgery when we went to the vet to have his stitches removed and they told me they were surprised he was not doing better and more with his leg. They did give me a hand out after surgery with a few of the same exercises that are in your weeks 1&2. They sent me home that day with the advice to work inclines with him and recommended hydro therapy. I was pretty upset and frustrated that was all the advice I received. So when I got home I jumped on the internet in search of help.

This is when I found your guide, downloaded it and began to use it. We began this on Tues, April 25th 2012. It has only been 6 days and we just (literally) came in from our therapy session 2 of the day (Monday, April 30th 2012) and Spud walked the whole 5 minutes on his leg, was not tense during PROM, motion work, and totally relaxed during massage & passed out during ice time. I have followed your guide very closely and have done therapy at least 3x a day. (time consuming Yes, Success YES) Especially with a 5 month old baby girl, 3 other dogs, 4 horses, 2 goats, and multiple other little critters. I also use the log you made available and note after every therapy session as to what went on good or bad improvements or something different I may have tried and have found this to be very helpful!

I am going to pass your guide on to my vet to hand out to others after dogs receive this surgery. I am also going to hydro therapy with Spud and will be taking the guide with me there to give to them in case any other pet parent is at a loss with frustration of healing their best friend after surgery.

I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to put together such an awesome guide and making it available for FREE to the public. Your expertise and knowledge has helped us out in a wondeful way.

 I am a trainer myself and it always feels good to hear back from clients about how you have made a change in their life, success stories, and that you’re helping people out with their animals. Also this is so you know your guide is being used on the net!

Spud and the rest of my dogs are all working dogs whether obedience, agility, or therapy work. They are C.G.C. and T.D.I. and I can’t wait to get Spud back on his feet and working again! Feel free to use any of my email so others know this really works when you put in the time.

Maureen MacDonald & Angus
Testimonial Categories: TPLO.
We found the TopDog Rehab guide for TPLO surgery on the same day that  our 5 year old Golden Retriever, Angus, had his first TPLO surgery. Thank goodness we did. Without the TopDog guide, we would have been at  a considerable disadvantage in terms of helping Angus to heal and  regain mobility and strength. Our orthopedic veterinarian provided about three typed pages of confusing notes. They explained the  immediate post-op care for the first three days and what to watch for  in terms of abnormal reaction to the surgery. They also contained  general instructions to show up for an x-ray in eight weeks and then to start movement … and not much else. The TopDog guide, on the other hand, provides step-by-step information for the first few days and then for every week during the process. It  also contains photos and you can view related videos on the TopDog website. I firmly believe both the dog and the owners are helped by  these guides. Angus needed TPLO on his other leg four months after the first surgery (this was not a surprise. We knew at the start he would need both  done). When the second surgery was completed I needed to download and  print a new copy of the TPLO guide. Why? The first one was so well-worn and dog-eared that it was falling apart. That’s how much use it  got. And after 8-10 weeks, the second guide was in the same condition. I recommend the TopDog TPLO rehab guide without hesitation. It helped  our beloved dog heal more quickly and become stronger faster. And it  helped my husband and me get through a very stressful experience with  more confidence and assurance than we would have with just the  information provided by our vet. The TopDog guide was free. I would  have gladly paid for it … twice.

Testimonial Categories: TPLO.

My 3 year old German Shepherd Dog “Baron” was scheduled to have TPLO Surgery on his back left leg on February 22, 2010.  Not knowing anything about Post Surgery, I looked on-line and came across the most incredible site, “Top Dog Animal Health & Rehabilitaion”! It has been the most wonderful thing in helping with Baron’s recouperation.  Not only did the TPLO Post Surgery booklet down load and print in a snap, they check in with you weekly via e-mail to give you reminder tips, ect.  Having followed the instructions pretty close to their recommendations, you can really see a difference.  Baron is almost into week 5 and he’s doing amazing.  The physical therepy exercises helps him to actually use his energy, but at the same time help in the healing process.  The short video’s on how to approch each exercise are worth a few short minutes of your time to ensure each exercise is done properly. Once I found out they also are on Facebook, my life just got better.  You can talk to people who are going through what you are.  Everybody is their to support you, and offer advise on something that they also encountered and maybe had a solution.  It just works.

Thank you Dr.J and staff for all you’ve done and continue to do for my “Baby Bear”

Sara E. Petr & Meathead
Testimonial Categories: TPLO.

Our 2 year old American Bulldog, Meathead, has his TPLO on March 14, 2011.  Even though we are only two weeks into his recovery I wanted to write and say what a help TopDog has been to my husband and me.  Post-op day 3 we brought Meathead home and his leg was extensively bruised and swollen.  They kept him an extra day due to the amount of the swelling and oozing he was experiencing.  I’m a registered nurse and I have a background in joint surgeries, but I can’t imagine someone with no medical knowledge feeling confident caring for a pet following this type of surgery.

Before Meathead ever came home I’d done a ton a research on what to expect, but I wanted to find something that could be a reference for my husband on the nights that I’m at work.  I found that in TopDog.  Your week to week guide was exactly what we needed.  Week one:  Ice the leg!  There’s my husband was in the pen with Meathead, the ice pack and a towel.  Week two:  Moist heat, massage and passive range of motion.  Again…  There’s my husband in the pen with Meathead.

 Not only are your instruction technically correct, but I think that by spending the time with Meathead in the pen he gets bonding time with us.  Meathead isn’t accustomed to being confined all the time and sometimes I can tell he’s getting depressed and anxious.  The time we spend with him icing, massaging or moving the joints still allows for time to snuggle with Meathead.

Meathead has his first follow up appointment tomorrow!  Crossing my fingers that everything is on track.

Dear Dr. J:

I would like to thank you for creating such a wonderful place for dog owners to visit during such a very stressful time before and after surgery.  Your informative home rehabilitation guides and demonstration videos have been absolutely wonderful!  It gave me a chance to understand what to expect after surgery and how to best prepare for my pet’s homecoming and ongoing continued well-being.  Your detailed step by step weekly instructions are very clear and easy to understand.  I would highly recommend this site to anyone who is considering TPLO surgery.  I believe that physical rehabilitation including joint supplements is very important to a successful recovery.

You should be congratulated for your true love for animals and all the support that you have given us by sharing this vital information.

Thanks again.

First and foremost, I want to thank you for all of the wonderful information and products you have made available for dog owners. I went to your website and ordered the supplements and harness for Holley. I appreciate your email on what to expect each week and how I can best encourage healing after surgery.

Was able to schedule her for a surgery consult at A&M next Wednesday, the 13th.

As a lot of animal lovers, I am a bit apprehensive about the TPLO surgery. I just want to make the right decision for her health, well being and recovery.

Thanks again for making the rehab information available. Holley will have a much easier time recovering now that her “human” has the tools to help.

I cannot tell you how helpful your TPLO rehab therapy has been.  So clear along with the email follow up and videos. A far cry from the one pager I received from the vet when I left the clinic 4 weeks ago after surgery. As of now she is not on any pain meds – just your supplements. We seem to be progressing nicely. I don’t see any evidence of pain, biting, careful placement. She has what I would expect is a little limp when trotting and when walking using the leg. Still favoring it when she stands. We are up to 20 min few trots with walk.  Figure 8s and puppy squats….all which are going well.  Again thanks for sharing so freely of your expertise.

“When Toni’s Surgeon, Dr. Leadbeater provided me your TPLO rehab guide book and advised us of your site it gave me so much more then paper.  A world of knowledge, compassion and support opened up and it made the road to recovery easier for me and Toni and for that we are forever grateful!!!

My husband would joke that the guide book became my bible.  I carried it every where I went and it stayed in the center of our home where I could constantly reference and check off the days tasks.  The guide book provided invaluable instruction and a way to stay structured on your dogs recovery.  I added a grid for each week so I could track rehab activities and curb the rehab to Toni’s recovery time.

I can’t Thank Dr. J and his team enough for such smart and clear assistance!!!”

Testimonial Categories: FLEXERNA and GLYCANAID-HA FACTOR.

Our black Lab had TPLO surgery in January 2011. We had him on Deramaxx (anti-inflammatory) and a different brand joint supplement. Before he went into surgery, the surgeon ordered a blood panel, which showed elevated kidney levels due to the Deramaxx so we immediately took him off the medication. So now we had our dog having to go through the whole healing process without an anti-inflammatory. I was very worried, until I found the TopDog website, read about their supplements and spend some time browsing through testimonials. I ordered Flexerna (a natural anti-inflammatory) and the joint supplement and switched our dog from his old supplement to the new one the day we had it in the mail. What can I say, he never had any issues with inflammation and he is doing so much better on the TopDog supplements, than he ever did on Deramaxx and the other brand supplement! Thank you so much TopDog for making my pup feeling so much better.

Thanks for everything!!!

After our 4 year old Lab had TPLO surgery, we picked him up at the surgeon’s office and all we were told was, to keep him in a small confined area for 12 weeks. Feeling horrible for my dog, I started to search the internet for rehab and ended up downloading the TopDog Rehab Guide TPLO. I read the whole guide within a few minutes and was determined to give it a try (after reading many very positive testimonials). Our dog did outstanding, he enjoyed every minute of the rehab. His 6 week xrays showed that his bone had healed 90% already and the surgeon complemented us on how well our dog was getting around. I told him about the rehab guide and he was truly impressed. I can’t thank you TopDog guys enough for this awesome tool for the recovery after TPLO. Thank you!

Hi Dr. J. and Staff,

I just wanted to send a quick note to say “thank you” all for your support and information for my dog Quincys recovery.  I found your sight by accident about 1 week prior to my dogs surgery.  I have to say that If not for you sight, I would have no idea how to help my dog recover.  I printed the TPLO recovery guide and studied it from page to page.  It now looks like an old book because I refer to it all the time to see what I should be doing.  My dog is now 8 weeks post TPLO and he is doing very well.  Due to the information on your website and the recovery guide, my vet was amazed at  how well Quincy is using his leg and how little muscle loss he has.  If not for the information and TPLO guide, I think my dog would be weeks behind in his recovery.  In addition, I ordered the Glycanaid HA and Flexerna and see a huge difference in him.  I will continue to use these supplements for him as he is 8 years old and will need them for the rest of his years.  So thank you again, and I will continue to come to your website for information as well as ordering the amazing supplements you offer.

Nancy Missildine & Gracie
Testimonial Categories: TPLO.

Hi Dr J,

I want to thank you so much for the work that you do.  My service dog “Gracie” had TPLO surgery on September 25th.  I was so worried for her and for my abilities to care for her in the same dedicated way that she has cared for me over the years. I did not pick a surgeon that believes in supplements or home physical therapy,  I am not sure what I was thinking.  I have cooked her food and taken her to a vet who uses an integrative approach for years.  We did acupuncture, herbs and tried to work this issue naturally but it was not possible.  The irony of me finding myself with this kind of surgeon makes me laugh today many days after surgery.

My first experience with you and your organization was the recovery checklist which was helpful in just checking items off and getting prepared without being overwhelmed.  I felt grounded in knowing this was a long journey that we are on.

I love the  rehabilitation guide.  It is clear and concise and I feel like I know exactly what I should be doing each day. I also appreciated the journal area as I have kept very detailed notes.  She has a tear in the other leg as well so we are likely to be doing this again.  I pray for a better surgery experience next time.  I wish we could fly out to you.

The videos are fabulous.  I feel very competent doing each new exercise with her.  I have watched the videos several times as I have built my confidence.  I still have not found those dog treats you keep talking about.

The emails are amazing.  I feel so supported by you and I do not even know you.  They come at the exact right moments when encouragement and support are most needed.  Friends and family are trying to support this but they really don’t get whats happening under it all.  They don’t understand that its really not ok to to have infractions at all nor that she is looking and wanting to do more than she can or should. Funny, I see my surgeon after week 8, I could call if I needed her but so far no calls, emails from her – just the final bill. LOL

Then when I thought I was completely supported, encouraged and en-powered by you – you did something else.  You sent me the supplements for shipping costs only.  That is more than any person could imagine.  I just can not tell you how much your information and support has helped me so far.  I have just begun the journey, but I know I can count on you and I have no fear about how we will make it for the next 5 months and 1 week.  We will do it one week, one page of the guide, one video at a time. This is what we needed. I can not think of a way to help you or thank you enough for your work, dedication and effort.  Gracie and I want you to know we appreciate you and your team.  If there is ever anything I can do to help please do not hesitate to let me know.  I wish there were more people like you out in the world.

Thanks and take good care,

A little background: DD Puppers is 78 lb, female pit bull 8 years of age. I am a 74 year old woman who weighs twice as much as DD but less than half the strength:) However, DD has been the best patient since the surgery and she is still very patient with me!

I want you to know how much I appreciate your articles and especially the rehab guides on your website. One of my dogs, Ethel, had the TTA surgery 5 weeks ago. She is doing physical therapy 2 times a week along with laser therapy and walking a water treadmill. My Vet gives us PT to follow at home and I also incorporate your weekly rehab tips and instructions with my Vets blessing. And I can not recommend enough nor do I know what I would have done without your Support RX Body Harness!  She’s a big girl to lift in a car! The Doctor and Physical Therapist told me that Ethel is doing better than any other dog they have ever had of her caliber (I guess she means age, size and maybe breed??) that had the TTA and gone through their therapy. I’m one proud animal Mom! But so much credit goes to you for your rehab guide, video’s and the support harness.

It is so obvious that you love animals and being a Veterinarian is more than a career. You genuinely care about these animals’ health and want to educate us simple animal lovers. I can’t thank you enough! I wish you had a practice here in the Chicagoland area.

Hello Dr. J.

Your harness has been so helpful to my Austrlian Terrier. He suffered a very severed fracture in his elbow due to a car accident. The repair was done by a very good surgeon in Miami. As you know, no repair is good, unless you can keep the dog from destroying the repair. My Aussie is a maniac on the leash at 15 months old, you can imagine what can happen if you can’t control the dog on the walk. Well, he had long pins migrating to his neck and little pins coming out of his elbow. luckily the most important piece of the puzzle (the screw) is intact! First i saw your video about walking in a control manner… well no Dr. could tell me how to do that. then I saw your harness and I got it. It has been a Got sent for us. He no longer pulls from his upper body and no longer grabs the ground with his front paw. The great thing is that it does not put any pressure in his front since you control him by the meddle. I am very proud to have found you and have shown the harness to all the Drs we have visited. Thanks so much for putting out all those videos and if you think of something else that could benefit Miles now or later when he gets Arthritis, let me know. He is a beautiful show Dog that has or had a very promising career…

Dear Dr. J,

We are so relieved to have a way to help our 13-year-old German Shepherd with canine DM up and down the stairs! She is comfortable with the front part of the harness on her body all day, and we just snap on the back part when she needs to go outside. Only one person needs to accompany her at this point, but we know that in the future it will take both of us. Because of the harness, we won’t have to relegate her to living in the garage downstairs in her final stage of life.

We do find that the back part of the harness is a little loose on her narrow hind quarters, but I think I can sew a tuck into those straps  to make a more snug fit.  Friends of ours are amazed at your creation—when their two labs were on their last legs, they had to improvise a sling by cutting open a  large canvas tote bag to carry the dogs down the stairs.  Thanks for making the body harness available.

Testimonial Categories: FHO.

My Newfoundland was diagnosed with SEVERE hip dysplasia and our vet determined that the best approach would be FHO surgery.  When we were able to bring her home, the vet failed to inform us on what to expect.  When her leg was dangling and she sat on it and urinated all over it, I freaked.  I came inside and cleaned her up and tried to call the vet.  He was not available so I resorted to the internet where I found TOP DOG HEALTH and a book on my dogs surgery.  I read what I could and downloaded the E-BOOK.  It was such a relief that what I was experiencing the first couple of hours with her was all NORMAL. When I was finally was able to talk with the vet he said it was a llittle overkill using the book but I thought it made more since than he did.  My husband works in WOUND CARE and said all the therapy can only help.  It has been 7 days and we have started the moist heat and she is walking on her injured leg with about 25% pressure most of the time and she is loving all the attention during therapy time.  Without the book I would not know what to do or how to do it properly. Thank you so much Top Dog Health!

Jody Jernigan & Nutmeg
Testimonial Categories: FHO.

Hi Dr. Stclair,

My name is Jody and almost 2 years ago, my dog Nutmeg (Nutty) had to have an FHO done. I work as a receptionist in a vet clinic and this was the surgery the vet recommended as I could not afford a total hip replacement at Ohio State University. Nutty weighs about 88 pounds, a husky mix. She is a pound puppy, got her at 6 weeks. However, she does have severe hip dysplasia and one hip became dislocated and would not stay in the socket….which wasn’t formed enough to hold the ball in there. To make a long story short, we had the surgery and the vet gave me no go home instructions except to keep her quiet. Duh!!!! That’s when I got online and found your rehab booklet. I printed it out and did therapy on her 3 times a day….as much of it as I could do. Needless to say, the moist heat, massages and exercises helped her tremendously.

When I told the vet about my discovery of your booklet online….he got kind of crappy with me and said we shouldn’t be looking online for medical advice. Ha!!!….when he did another FHO….guess what?…he asked me for your booklet that I downloaded. And then later again….he asked for it for another patient. So I’m going to see if he’ll order your Guides…he’s heard me tell people that I got the booklet from Top Dog and I’ve referred people to your website. Not sure how many actually go there, but I have told people about it.  My dog is doing wonderful, thanks to the vet but also, many thanks to you for the therapy I was able to help her through. She leads a normal life and you’d never be able to tell she’s even had surgery. She does great.

Many thanks!

My 2 year old Border Collie (Aiyana) had to have FHO surgery (birth defect).  I was totally in the dark with what to expect and what I needed to do.  After hours of research, I was still lost.  I downloaded the FHO booklet from TopDog.  This booklet was amazing!  It told me step by step what to expect and what I should be doing to allow my dog a 100% recovery.  I printed out a copy for my vet as well and he loved it.  Vets are “experts” on surgeries but few are “experts” on after-care.  TopDog specializes in the after-care side and it shows in their booklets.  I have recommended them to everyone I know (I am a dog trainer so I know plenty of pet parents).   6 months post-op and Aiyana is better now than she ever was.  Thank you TopDog for the wonderful booklets.  Because of you, my dog will be able to do agility!

Hello,

I would like to say just how much the TopDog rehab guides helped me and my dog through the CCL recovery process. They were truly beyond my expectations. While I was doing research on the internet for ways to help my dog recover from his CCL surgery I happened to luck out and find Dr.J’s information. I was thrilled to tears to discover the free downloads that he offered and I was not even his client! The rehab guides go above and beyond what I expected with not just written information but actual photo’s that instructed in detail how to apply and perform the various techniques. From the first scary days when your dog comes home they show you step by step how to use ice therapy, passive range of motion, using a sling or support to maneuver the dog. All very, very scary procedures to preform without the proper instructions to inexperienced, nervous dog parents. The guides don’t stop there they take you right to the end of recovery explaining and educating on all the different exercises and modalities of the rehab process with your dog.

Having had a dog go through two knee surgeries years ago when there was absolutely nothing available to help me help my poor dog, I wanted more!  Now years later I again found myself with a dog that ruptured his CCL and was sent home with little to no instructions on his recovery or rehabilitation needs. Thankfully, I was not satisfied with this lack of help and information and decided to research other possibilities. And so I found the TopDog rehabilitation guides via the internet, sadly not through my veterinarian or orthopedic surgeon.

My hope is these rehab guides be made available from veterinarians and surgeons to all who face these type surgeries and want the best possible outcome for their pups. Simply put they are invaluable. Take it from someone who knows all too well what it was like to face this surgery and recovery with no knowledge of what to expect. The TopDog rehabilitation guides are an absolute necessity.  Just pick one up and see for yourself how informative and professional yet easy to follow they are for all types of orthopedic recovery and rehabilitation. I would like to personally thank Dr.J and TopDog rehabilitation for sharing this wealth of information with the pet community and hope all veterinarians will follow in his footsteps.

Bailey, a five year old black lab recovering from ACL surgery, has found it a wonderful  help for her owner – she particularly liked the moist heat therapy and massage – and still does even though we have passed the point where it is necessary. Seriously the booklet has been a great help – I showed it to my vet and he thinks it is a really good  source of information.  We are on week 5 ( should be on week 6 but my mom had hip replacement surgery two weeks ago and my time was pretty crunched) and Bailey is doing really well.  Went for her one month check – up and our vet thought she was several weeks ahead of where she should be in terms of movement and weight on her leg. Information is well written, concise and the descriptions of each activity ( i.e. puppy sits) very easy to understand.  Have also appreciated the weekly emails which have given additional information and tips. Thanks!

Hi Dr. J,

 My Bichon Frise, Zoey, hurt her leg while running through snow in our backyard March 4 2011. Assuming it was just a slight sprain I brought her to the vet. To my horror I was told it was a tear in her Cranial Cruciate Ligament and that it was going to require an expensive surgery with a lengthy recovery. I went home determined to find out what I could to help her through this. I found the Topdoghealth.com website. I easily found a booklet for the cruciate surgery. It was exactly what I was looking for. It takes me step by step, and week by week on what I should be doing and watching out for. It gives examples, hints, and leaves very few questions unanswered. It has become my “bible” for helping me get my dog through this.

Thanks

Dear Dr. James,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how pleased we are with Sadie’s progress after her ACL surgery. Although we haven’t been able, due to time constraints, to follow your protocol to the letter, we’ve had great success. Sadie is now solidly on all four legs after 7 years (negligent previous owners) of lameness. It’s still too soon to let her run off the leash but she is trotting along at a good pace and doing great at hill climbing. We hope to get her out on the hiking trail for short hikes very soon after we check in with her vet and get his approval.

We were very concerned about Sadie’s recovery due to the length of time she’d been without the use of her leg. But thanks to Dr. Hawman and your booklet, we’ve got her up and running (almost). Thank you so much for your guidance.

I downloaded your CCL rehabilitation information a while ago. Our dog did have surgery 5 weeks ago. I took the information to share with the vet doing surgery. He looked it over, said that he “doesn’t want anyone messing with his surgical repair and that dogs do their own physical therapy.” So… I listened to his comments with a grain of salt, and when my dog came home (we boarded him with the vet for the first 4 weeks, as we knew the only way we could keep him quiet was to have him heavily sedated – not an option in my mind) I began following your protocol. He is doing very well, getting stronger, and does not seem to have much pain. As a physical therapist, I know people don’t always follow our recommendations and often have poor outcomes, which they blame on the surgeon. I think you need to start the education process for vets in veterinary school. It’s difficult to get people to change when they feel what they have been doing is working Any way, thanks so much for the information.

When my 7 year old year old Yorkie had ACL surgery I was devastated.  I spent hours searching through the web for information on the recovery process but could not find anything satisfactory until I came upon the Top Dog Heath Website. It was a God sent, the website not only had a depth of information but many testimonials on other dog owner’s experiences.

I downloaded the Home Rehabilitation Booklet and followed the instructions. I found the instructions and information most helpful and it helped my dog’s recovery. The website gave me a piece of mind and helped speed up my dogs recovery. This site is a must for any dog owner and is highly recommended.

This ACL post op guide was awesome. The instructions from my Vet were so minimal and conflicted with what the surgeon said to do the first time Harley ruptured his other ACL. My beagle lab mix just had a second ACL repair with suture like the first one that he recovered from completely. He didn’t rupture the second one for 4 years! He weighs 50 pounds and we are in week 7 post surgery. He is 7 years old. It is good to see he is progressing normally. This has been a long 7 weeks but I know time invested now will pay off for him later.

Thank you so much!

Thank you very much – I love your website and the “personal” feel I get from the follow-up emails and advice.  My dog required TWO surgeries as a result of a fall while hunting that dislocated his right hip.  The second surgery was necessary because the vet did not realize (during the first repair) that the head of his femur was fractured, so the mesh repair didn’t work and a FHO was necessary.

It’s been a long haul for sure (we’re approaching 3 months from the initial injury) but thanks to your brochure of physical therapy exercises we’ve been able to make progress and the other day he actually stood flat-footed and bore weight on the leg for the first time.  In addition to your therapy regimen, I found a place where we can do hydrotherapy as well.  So I’m optimistic that the combination will bring him back to a [relatively] normal state.  “D’Art” loves the GlycanAid supplements.  We’re still on our first bottle (I give him 1 morning and night) and I’ll continue the regimen after this bottle is gone.  I’ve also recommended it to a friend, whose dog has been having her own issues with her back legs and lower spine.

I’ve also recommended your website to a NUMBER of people.  (Including giving you credit in an article I just wrote about “D’Art’s Misadventure” for our Breed Club Newsletter.)  D’Art is a field trial and show champion – and GREAT hunting dog.  Our goal is to hopefully get him to a point where he can hunt again.  Maybe not field trial, but at least hunt – because he loves it so much and he is such a joy to hunt over.  I am so grateful for the guidance I’ve got from you.  I know it is helping.  THANKS!

Dr. St Clair, I wanted to thank you for the product GlycanAid HA Factor. Roughly a year ago my 6 year Beagle, Tahoe, suddenly showed obvious problems with her back legs. Initially we suspected a strain and provided her plenty of rest to heal. The problem worsen to the point where Tahoe could barely walk on her rear legs and most dragged her back end around until she could finally stand up. Having seen this I took Tahoe to our Vet and had X-Ray’s done and the diagnosis was the equivalent of an ACL tear in both legs, the right more severe than the other. I was provided with surgical options and costs involved and the recovery procedure. Being the beginning of the winter months I consulted with our vet the ramifications of delaying the surgeries until the spring for ease of recovery. This didn’t present an issue and our Vet’s recommendation was to watch her diet and prescribed pain killers for the bad days. That day I became to search for options on the internet that may provide some relief and/or help in the recovering and rebuilding of Tahoes knees after surgery. Which is how I found TopDogHealth.com. I didn’t want to use the prescribed pain killers too often due to possible side effects, so after researching your product GlycanAid HA Factor I felt it was worth a try. Began Tahoe on the 2 per day and continued this as directed and in a short period of time not only I saw the improvement in Tahoe’s mobility, but other did as well. After 2 full months the improvement was astonishing, Tahoe was walking again with no dragging of either leg and begin to once again use the stair without any assistance. Needless to say I continued the GlycanAid HA Factor and her improvement continued as well. As of today Tahoe show no signs of issues within her rear legs and is now not only walking, but using the stairs (up and down), jumping on the bed and furniture (no way she could do this a year ago) and again accompanies me on walks where we jog at times as well. After all the activity, again Tahoe shows no signs of pain and anyone meeting her for the first would never know the condition she was in a short time ago. I have no doubt in my mind that GlycanAid HA Factor and the weight reduction were the reasons for her turnaround. Tahoe has come such a long way her surgeries were cancelled and she is living a fun filled active life again. I continue to buy GlycanAid HA Factor to this day and will do so for as long as I am a pet owner. My other dog is also taking GlycanAid HA Factor just as a maintenance preventative and I have recommended the product to several friends. We feel very fortunate that Tahoe did not have to undergo the invasive surgery planned and has returned to her playful self. Thank you for GlycanAid HA Factor.

Dr. J,

I don’t think my big boy Hank  could have done without his (TPLO on second leg, 1st TPLO went without a hitch, the second leg’s healing was going very slow with constant setbacks until about 4 months after surgery we started him on GlycanAid HA. The improvement was evident after 3 weeks but as time passed I thought he might always favor the leg when first arising but when I wasn’t paying attention he came back 100%. Amazing! You worry & worry, then voila! I will always keep him on this supplement, even though we are 8 months post-surgery, I have worked it into my budget. Thanks again for your great product, advice & encouragement.

Our dog Cali had FHO surgery last year…your information was a Godsend in helping us understand the steps to assist in making her her recovery much easier!  She has less severe dysplasia in her “good” hip.  We give her Glycanaid HA and it makes a HUGE difference.   My daughter now gives it Rider, her elderly Lab. She was giving him another brand of joint supplement  which didn’t seem to help much.  Since he as been taking the Glycanaid HA, we can’t believe the difference…he now runs up and down the stairs, and is able to jump on the sofa and bed…not sure if they’re happy about those improvements :)

 After seeing what the Glycanaid HA has done for Cali and Rider, my brother started giving Glycanaid HA to his two 13-year-old Labs.  They have seen some improvement in their dogs’ ability to get around, and they will keep giving it to them with the hope that they see further improvement.

Thanks again, and we’ll keep spreading the word about your products!

They both LOVED them and I didn’t have to sneak them into cream cheese like everything else!

Dear Dr. James,

I just want to say “thank you” so much for making available to us such a fine product! My 11 year-old yorkie, Bobby, has gone from sleeping and lounging around all day to always wanting to go for a walk…sometimes he’ll even go for 40 minutes to an hour! I am taking my other 11 year old dog, Toby, off his current supplements as soon as he is finished with them and starting him on Glycanaid-HA also. Although he doesn’t seem to have as much severity as Bobby did, I know that he has a little trouble sometimes, and I am confident that he will do better with your product. Delivery has been very fast and packaging is excellent also. I try to tell everyone about Glycanaid-HA.  Thanks again!

I have been using Glycan Aid HA now for almost 2 years.  That is when my Yorkie broke her left rear leg, tore all the tendons and ligaments and her kneecap had to be redone.  Yeppers she did a great job on herself!  And 2 weeks ago she did her ACL on her rear right leg….not as bad, thank goodness!  But…the Glycan Aid HA works….and everyone should use it with their dog…make it a daily routine.  We do and even our Vet said it is GREAT stuff!

My 6yr old Golden retriever Dakota had a traditional CCL repair and had part of her meniscus removed almost 7 months ago  After surgery she was still very stiff when she got up and would limp when tired after a 15 min walks.  I started her on Flexerna and GlycanAid-HA and now she is acting like a puppy!! no limp after running, swimming in the ocean, and walking on the beach.  She now takes me for walks.  Even with the cold temperatures I thought the arthritis would make her even more stiff but she has been fine!! I have a very happy energetic dog!  I know its the supplements because I was told that  even with the surgery that I would still see stiffness due to the arthritis but I have seen improvement and no stiffness!

Thank you Top Dog for making my Dakota a happy dog!

I purchased the GlycanAid-HA, I love, love, LOVE the GlycanAid-HA!!!! Angus has been on supplements for years, but he is so much better after taking this. Angus is only 3 years old, but has had 2 ACL surgeries–both knees; so you understand my concern with his quality of life. He was just over 1 yr old when his first knee blew & I was concerned for him to hopefully have a very long & happy future. Since using the GlycanAid-HA, he has been running HARD, he can catch Maggie (our 3 year old basenji) now and Maggie is very fast. He streeeeetches long, he’s starting to jump again when he’s excited & he’ll stand on his hind legs on the couch to look out the window. These are all changes that have occurred since being on the GlycanAid-HA. Thank you so much!!!!! We are all so very happy.

Rainier seems to have improved! It has only been 2 or 3 weeks. He moves better and isn’t so stiff when he first gets up. The snapping noises aren’t so prominent when he gets up and lies down. So I would call that significant improvement! he is walking without showing signs of pain like in the past. I sincerely hope I don’t have to put him through TPLO surgery again! I put him on the HA formula as an initial dosing. He didn’t get support like that when he was in recovery. I plan on continuing the GlycanAid regular maintenance when I finish this bottle. I plan to keep him on this supplement for the rest of his life. I believe you that this formula gives him the joint support he needs. I see a distinct difference in his performance and behavior. We are about half way through the first bottle and I didn’t expect to see such good results! Thank you again for your incentive and encouragement.

I just want to write a quick note to let you know that GlycanAid-HA has helped both of our dogs greatly. Having two large breed dogs with knees and hips issues we know how hard is to find a product that can actually help our dogs, it has been an ongoing struggle to find a supplement that can do what GlycanAid-HA can do without any ill side effects. In these days with so many products promising to work miracles it is nice to know that we can finally trust a supplement that can do what it is actually suppose to do. Bailey and Morgan (our spoiled pups) have never been happier and full of life.

I love GlycanAid-HA. My dog had TTA surgery on July 31st, 2009 and after doing extensive research on which supplement would benefit him the most, I discovered that of course, I needed to give him the glucosamine and chrondroitin, but the key ingredient is HA.  Your product is far superior to anything I have found and the result is in the pudding…or dog in this case.  Possum is lively, body slams with the best of them and runs like he never had an operation.  I credit his great supplement for this behavior.  He gets a pill twice a day and is like a puppy.  I can’t recommend GlycanAid-HA enough to anyone, not just an orthodog.  Keep up the good work.  Thanks for a great product.

My German Shepherd has been on GlycanAid-HA and Flexerna for over a month and is doing really well. He’s moving about far better than before – although in fairness he’s also recovering from TPLO surgery, so I’d expect him to be doing better. The thing is, before surgery his other knee seemed to have issues as well and that knee had to do extra weight bearing while he recovered from the surgery. So the fact that he’s not favoring either leg and able to get up readily and anxious to do all sorts of activity says to me he’s doing a lot better. He loves the  GlycanAid-HA and seems to view it as a treat rather than something I have to trick him into taking, which makes it easier for me. He’s doing so well, I have no intention of stopping the GlycanAid-HA even though empirically that would be a better testament as to its effectiveness. While there are other somewhat similar products out there, TopDog seems dedicated to making sure that the ingredients are first -rate, not cheaper less effective versions. And if you have questions, Dr. J. will respond to you himself, which increases my confidence in these products.

I just ordered the Glycanaid HA and Flexerna for my son’s dog (Boone, an 8 year old Choc. Lab) after seeing such great improvement with my own dog – Judge.  Boone has had joint problems since puppyhood (front leg surgery for too fast growth? and two knee surgeries). I think his quality of life would have been much better had we known about TopDog Rehab and Health! He is now having more problems and I was so impressed with Judge’s recovery and the two supplements that I wanted Boone to have the benefit hopefully too. If they help him I will purchase them for him as well as for our Dog Judge who is about 13-14 weeks post his surgery. Thanks a lot!
