Jenn King of Prussia, Pennsylvania 8/21/2014 6:21:18 AM THank you for this article. I had never heard of using alfalfa! I will add that to her new diet! I found a totally natural way to help my pet at http://nzymespetproducts.com/arthritis-joint-pain/ I started these a couple months ago and my Dixie went from barely getting up to go potty to now she runs up the stairs! She even doesn't realize she is get something to help her she just sits up and begs for her little treats every morning! We were at the point where the vet suggested surgery or the Rainbow Highway and I wasn't prepared for either :( But I've never been so glad to find a supplement.
