Review of Sasha's Blend for Dogs
Sasha’s Blend is a nutriceutical supplement for dogs, containing active ingredients designed to relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis, delay the onset of degenerative joint disease, and to assist in a pet’s recovery from joint surgery.
At present, Sasha’s Blend has been approved for use in dogs, with further research being conducted into its use in cats and horses.
Sasha’s Blend contains 100% natural ingredients, consisting of Green Lipped Mussel, Abalone and Marine Cartilage with a vanilla and honey flavouring. The main active ingredients contained in those marine concentrates include the Essential Fatty Acids and Glycosaminoglycans with Chondroitin Sulphate.
Currently this product is available in one formulation for companion pets: a 8.8oz (250gm) tub of powder. The powder can be mixed into the pet’s daily food portion, and is generally well tolerated. The 8.8oz powder will dose a 45lb (20kg) dog for approximately 145 days.
Mode of Action
Independent scientific studies have demonstrated the active ingredients to:
- Reduce pain and inflammation by inhibiting the production of a major enzyme (PGE2) and co-factor (NO2) responsible for pain and inflammation.
- Stimulate healthy joint function by decreasing the loss of nutrients from the cartilage matrix – thus keeping cartilage cells alive and healthy – and by providing the nutritional building blocks for healthy joint fluid production.
Does it work?
Yes. It is the #1 selling joint supplement in Australasia (where it was first developed) for good reason – veterinarians see it working for their patients. My own personal experiences treating patients with this product have been very positive and I always recommend it to clients – that’s why we stock it at Best Price Pets. These anecdotal experiences are also backed up several independent scientific studies.
When to Use
Sasha’s Blend is most effective when combined with a comprehensive osteoarthritis management plan from your primary care veterinarian. It can be used as an adjunct to other treatments, or on its own. The main applications are for senior dogs showing signs of osteoarthritis, for dogs at risk of developing problems i.e. younger large breed dogs, or older dogs not yet showing symptoms, and for dogs recovering from joint surgery.
As always we recommend consulting with your veterinarian before commencing treatment. Although Sasha’s Blend is not recommended for use in breeding animals or those with an allergy to shellfish or marine products, it is regarded as a very safe product.
Where to buy
Sasha’s Blend is available from Best Price Pets as a 8.8 oz (250gm) tub of powder.
