Hip Dysplasia Is Only The Beginning...
Did you know that without the correct treatment plan many more
problems can result from this disease?
No one wants to see their dog suffering. Do you want the BEST for your dog?
I know how your feel. This happened to me.
Tragically many dog owners fail to recognize the sometimes fatal complications from hip dysplasia can result in the following problems for their pet...
* Spinal injury
* Crippling arthritis
* High blood pressure
* Extreme behavior changes
* Cartilage damage
* Bone damage
Elbow or Hip Dysplasia is essentially the abnormal growth of parts of the elbow or hip. Although the growth occurs during puppyhood, the symptoms may not show up until later in life. Dogs affected by hip or elbow dysplasia often suffer from lameness, swelling and arthritis.
This ailment tends to affect larger breed dogs such as Golden Retrievers, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Boerboels, Great Danes, Labradors etc. Signs of the condition may begin appearing between five and 12 months of age.
So your dog is diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia or
Dejenerative Joint Disease... now what?
Most Veterinary traditional treatments will include NSAIDs - Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs. Treatment will depend on several factors including your dog's age, heath, severity of the defects and the costs of treatment.
Conventional medical treatment for canine hip dysplasia involves corticosteroids or non-steroidal medications and may include the following:
NSAIDs such as Rimadyl, Previcox, Metacam etc help relieve pain and inflammation.
While NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) stops the pain quickly, it does NOT prevent canine hip dysplasia damage to the joints and may even inhibit healing of the cartilage, further destroying the cartilage and joint components if used over a long period of time.
Acetaminophen treats mild to moderate pain in osteoarthritis.
It has no anti-inflammatory properties and is purely for pain relief. It can be used safely in conjunction with NSAIDs. Too much of this medicine can cause liver damage.
Corticosteriods or steriods for short are anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain relieving medications similar to NSAIDs.
They are very effective medication if your dog suffers from extreme pain or when they fail to respond to NSAIDs. However the negative side effects of corticosteriods is that they are immuno suppressive and may also contribute to the destruction of your pet's joints by decreasing collagen and proteoglycans synthesis in cartilage.
Or they get operated on in very severe cases.
Traditional Drug treatments are short-term treatments for a long-term condition. Does this make sense to you?
I'm convinced! My dog's worth it!
I want to buy the best:
What your Dog NEEDS is something Effective and Safe.
Notice I said "effective".
This doesn't mean that aggressive drugs or treatments are your only option. No! Remember that the root of virtually all good drugs come from primarily natural sources. Take a look at the statistic provided by the Journal of Natural Products. According to the facts...
"Around 70 percent of all new drugs introduced in the United States in the past 25 years have been derived from natural products"
So not only do you want something that is effective, it must also:
That is a lot to ask. But we must not only ask for as much as we can for our dogs, we must also ask for the best for our dogs.
"After trying many other Joint Supplements with no success, I was at my wits end and then heard about Sashas Blend. I tried it.
Let me introduce you to probably the
BEST JOINT SUPPLEMENT IN THE WORLD! - SASHAS BLENDHere are just a few of the ways Sashas Blend effectively helps treat the symptoms associated with hip dysplasia:
"Sashas Blend is the only Product I will prescrible for my patients suffering with Degenerative Joint Disease" - Dr J J, Veterinarian, Stellenbosch
If this does not convince you that
Sashas Blend is a MUST HAVE Product then let's go a bit further:
BEST QUALITY INGREDIENTS:
Sashas Blend is so good that not only is it a registered Nutraceutical but it is the first nutraceautical in Australia to be registered as a Pharmaceutical too (APVMA registration).
Its is also registered with the Medical Control Council in South Africa - proving Efficacy, Quality and Safety. All ingredients in Sashas Blend are Human Grade.
Registrations numbers: V18886 Act 36 of 1947 - Dept of Agriculture and 140500 Act 101 of 1965 - Dept of Health (RSA) Medicines Control Council .
All science performed on Sashas Blend is performed on the product in its entirety. WORLD'S BEST QUALITY SCIENCE:
What is that? It simply means that all science performed on Sashas Blend is performed on the product in its entirety.
When research is conducted on Sashas Blend , all the ingredients are tested:
What does this mean? Several things actually. Most Chondroitin and Glucosamine products out there use second hand science - meaning that their claims are based on the science performed on any one of the individual ingredients mentioned on the label.
How does this effect you? Well, the ingredients used in the science, although they may have the same name, may not necessarily be the same quality ingredients sourced and used in the jar.
Not all Chondroitin, Glucosamin etc is sourced from the same source, nor extracted in the same way, nor have the same active levels. In a nutshell, some are inferior to others. Manufacturing companies however may take the best science claims on these various ingredients and use it in advertising to promote the product.
This does not happen with Sashas Blend.
ALL our claims are what have been scientifically proved using the highest quality of science and based on the complete blend which makes up Sashas Blend.
Why is this so important? Well, when two other international joint formulation products were put through some of the same rigorous scientific testing as Sashas Blend, they showed that they actually INCREASED inflammation in the joint, thereby making them only effective if used in conjuction with anti-inflammatories or NSAIDs! Sashas Blend formulation decreased inflammation significantly.
Our science has also proved to be of the highest quality in the world currently.
In 2009, Scientists tried to see the quality of scientific evidence gained from GAG based nutraceautical products in equine joint disease. They studied all science published in respect of in-vivo research - that is science actually performed on the horses themselves. Did you know that of the 315 product on the market in America only 15 of them had any published scientific findings over the last 25 years?
Of those 15 experiments, only 3 made it into to Minimum Quality Standards and of course - Sashas Blend came out on top.
So while there are natural treatments out there that promise to help your dog recover from hip dysplasia or some other degenerative joint disease, there are even MORE so called Natural treatments out there that are as useless as a stick of bubblegum after it has been chewed!
What does this teach us? - Not all products are created equally.
With Sashas Blend, you KNOW what you are buying.
What about molecular weight and Mammalian vs Marine Chondroitin or Glucosamine?
You must have seen the selling punchline on some of these joint formulation products stating that their Chondroitin and/or Glucosamine is of a lower molecular weight (usually between 7 and 10 kDa) which gives their product the ability to be rapidly absorbed into the body.
This is true. But they also neglect to inform you that these GAGs are also very quickly excreted from the body. Therefore, ideally you would need to take the product more often and in higher doses in order to achieve some visable result, making them in true terms, very expensive and not as effective as Sashas Blend.
Not as effective? Let me explain: Sashas Blend's science included a digestion simulation to see how our GAGs survive the Gastrointestinal (GI) Tract and what effect it has on the GI Tract. In this we also looked at bioavailability of the molecules and what size molecule is the joint best able to accept and absorb. We found that a damaged joint can accept a molecular weight of up to 50kDa.
What did we do? We removed all molecules larger than 50kDa and kept all other molecules inside in the formulation. That is why Sashas Blend is able to work so quickly and stay in the body so much longer making it so much more effective.
Another reason we do not use mammalian GAGs is due to the worldwide dangers of those horrible diseases like Mad Cow, Bird Flu etc.
OPTIMUM LEVELS OF ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: What about the levels of active ingredients is Sashas Blend?
This is also where Sashas Blend stands apart. We extract our own actives from our ingredients through our patented processes. In this way we are able to get and ensure the highest actives from our ingredients in every jar of Sashas Blend.
Most GAGs bought by manufacturing companies are sourced from the East where unfortunately there is no legislation specifying the extraction processes to be used to obtain actives from the ingredients nor is there any legislation specifying the best methods to use for the best results. This makes these GAG's active levels unreliable at best.
With Sashas Blend every jar is exactly the same, packed with the highest levels of active ingredients.

A question regarding conservation.
Our Certificate of Export is issued by the Department of Conservation in New Zealand (Permit No. 09NZEEC1033/CY). Here the Director-General of Conservation certifies that shipments of Sashas Blend and Joint XL's ingredients as stated in the schedule:
The CITES certificate is quite self explanatory and the fact that it is reviewed and then renewed or revoked every 6 months is amazing from a conservationist point of view.
It shows that the New Zealand Department of Conservation is absolutely serious and strict in their continued assessment of their marine life in and around New Zealand which certainly earns them the title of one of the toughest Conservation Departments in the world – another point of victory for conservationists.
The permit issued to states that none of the species used in the production of Sashas Blend or Joint XL (the Human Formulation of Sashas Blend) are listed in CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) and fully conforms to the requirements of the Convention. From a conservationist point of view, this is fantastic as a species, along with its ecosystem and habitat, is sustained even if it that species is not listed as endangered or featured in CITES.
BEST JOINT PROTECTION AND SHOCK ABORBTION: How does it work best for Hip Dysplasia?
We have been able to show through our science that Sashas Blend improves the integrity of the Synovial Membrane that surrounds the joint.
What does that mean? Well, the cells that make up this membrane are responsible for producing the fluid (synovial fluid) inside the joint capsule, which provides nutrients for the cartilage along with giving extra shock absorbtion abilities to the joint ends due to its thick and ultra smooth consistancy.
With Sashas Blend, Synovial cells now stop dying at such a furious rate (caused by the inflammation associated with hip dysplasia), and they now may start regenerating. This allows the cells to also start producing more fluid for the joint capsule.
This is very important! Hip Dysplasia causes a larger that normal joint space to occur between ball and socket. The body is not able to produce enough Synovial Fluid to fill this gap sufficiently causing the joint ends to knock and rub against each other due to insufficient shock absorbtion causing even more damage and pain.
Sashas Blend bolsters the production of Synovial fluid inside the joint capsule, providing that much needed extra shock absorbing fluid in the joint.
But not only that, Sashas Blend provides anti-inflammatory properties, pain relief and feeds the cartilage with the full range of GAGs (not only Chondroitin and Glucosamine) all at the same time!

Some symptoms to watch out for which may indicate the your dog has painful joints.
If you answer YES to any of these questions, have your dog's joint examined by your veterinarian:
Are you ignoring these symptoms?
These symptoms may strongly suggest a joint issue or injury. This condition of the joints usually leads to early onset, painful arthritis, a disease characterized by pain and swelling.
Arthritis is one of the end effects of hip dysplasia.
Hip Dysplasia will cause great discomfort to pets if not treated correctly and you can prevent a short, painful life experience for your dog.
