Gio takes a number of medications each day due to his various medical issues. One item that has a great effect on him is Dog Gone Pain. It is an all-natural herbal supplement, designed to improve joint pain due to chronic injury or old age, arthritis, etc. Gio has an unidentified "leg issue" ... maybe "back issue" ... who knows, from years and years ago. It's actually the main reason that he had to retire from his beloved flyball. He's had X-rays and nothing shows up, the latest guess was a partially torn cruciate. The advice given to me by the vet that suggested it is that we just have to wait and see what happens. If it tears completely, then we do surgery. But until that point, there is not much we can do. I'm not convinced that it is a partially torn cruciate ligament, but have no better suggestion to give. I began giving him glucosamine and chondroitin daily in hopes that it would help, but didn't see very noticeable results. It was eventually suggested to me that I give Dog Gone Pain a try. I did ... and it is amazing! He no longer limps, unless he has had a very hard run or play session. He no longer favors his hind leg, and is able to participate without issue in numerous dog sports and activities. It's been a miracle worker for him!

Anyways, getting back to the point, I recently ran out of DGP and had lost the website link that I had previously ordered it from. I found a new website with a decent price and placed an order. iHERB is a distributer of nutritional and dietary supplements. I believe it is primarily geared towards human supplements, but it also has DGP, and a number of other natural health products for dogs and cats.

My shipment of DGP arrived today, along with a little insert advertising their Rewards Program. Here's the deal, as a new member, I have been given a referral code. I give that referral code to friends, and if you are a first time shopper at iHERB, you get $5 off your purchase when you use my code. I then earn credit towards iHERB products for each time someone uses my code. Since iHERB seems to have the best prices for DGP that also ships to Canada, I'll likely be using them again. So if you use my code, you will be, indirectly, helping Gio's gimpy leg! *snicker* But, the real deal, is that you get $5 off your first order, whether you use it for dog products or human products. So check it out.
