Lee Windeatt, International Agility Competitor and Dog Trainer has sent us this story of his experience with his young dog Coy

For years we have been encouraged to neuter our dogs and cats, we have been told this will help prevent unwanted pregnancies and help prevent many health issues. The first is certainly true but is the latter? Yes it can prevent “some” health issues but the latest research shows it can cause a lot of health issues too and may actually have far more negatives than positives. I’d encourage you to research it thoroughly before going ahead with it.

I have a puppy (sort of anyway, at the time of writing she is just 2 years and 3 months) At the age of 10 months I noticed a change in her, subtle at first but then it snowballed into a full blown personality change, a shell of her normal self she would just shutdown and act like the world was over. She may be in a fantastically good mood and bouncing around begging me to play with her then within one second act as though she had been scolded and threatened.

Nothing I tried could bring her out of this state, except time. I tried ignoring it, I tried treats, playing tug (her favourite thing) begging her, I tried putting her away from all the other dogs, I tried putting her with the other dogs. I tried every single thing you could ever think of and the only thing that helped was a few hours to herself and then she’d be ok for an hour or so.

I recognized that this was hormone related and after her first season she had a major phantom pregnancy. After the phantom I carried on trying to work through this which was soul destroying as I trying to train her for agility. It was impossible to train her, so after another season where she had her second phantom pregnancy I waited for three months and then made the decision to have her spayed.

I had a traditional spay and after the necessary rest and care about 8 to 10 weeks later I decided to start her agility training again. I cannot express how happy I am, since her spay she has been back to her old self, the pup I had before ten months old.

She is now flying and hopefully will be able to start competing soon as long as no hiccups come my way. So although I am still not convinced neutering our pets in the best thing it certainly was in this case, it has turned a very sad dog back into the happy bouncy girl she wanted to be – take a look!

Early days still but 2 of my dogs with eye issues have now been on them for about 1 week and they are showing good signs of improvement. One is a 14 yr old with cataracts and her eyes are already clearer and showing some sparkle. The other suffers with allergy so gets muccus and sore crusty eyes in the allergy season moreso when the pollen comes out, and his eyes are looking alot clearer and less irritable and he is calmer after just 1 week and I am now very hopeful with regular use they will resolve his issue completely. I will be buying them again for sure.

Great service and quick delivery. Website very easy to use. I’ve been giving the flex joint care to my elderly arthritic dog for over a year now and see an improvement in him. He was on yumove advance but I felt it wasn’t doing much for him but I’ll keep him on the flex joint care.

Highly recommended, Flex Sprinkles Jointcare is fantastic!
I’ve bought the Jointcare for both of my dogs. My family has been giving Green Lipped Mussel to our dogs for more than 30 years now and it’s an amazing product. The sprinkles are fantastic and I put it on their food in the morning and no hesitation on eating, even with my fussy boy! One thinks it’s a treat he loves it that much. So much easier than tablets as well. A little goes a long way. Highly recommended.

So helpful and products realy work
I used the carnicare for my cavalier, for may years, sadly hes no longer with me, but he lived to be an ammazing 14, Im sure the carnicare helped his heart, and there is always a real person at the end of the phone should I need help, I still use carnicare for my other Cavalier, and the joint supplements, for my Lhasa Apso when he had a massive back operation, and more recently the hypercillin, now I use that for everything, I clean their eyes and ears with it, and if they ever get a poorly its my go to for them .
Brilliant company thankyou

BEST CANINE HEALTH SITE I HAVE SEEN
THIS COMPANY ARE A GOD SEND FOR ALL PET LOVERS, I BUY CLARIFYE FOR MY DOGS EYES AND THANKS TO BEING ABLE TO BUY FROM ACE RATHER THAN THE VET, I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CLEAR MY DOGS EYES 95%, STILL JUST A SHORT JOURNEY TO GO, BUT WHEN I THINK LESS THAN 7 MONTHS AGO HE COULD NOT SEE PROPERLY AND NOW HE CAN GET HIS NOSEY LITTLE BEAK INTO EVERYTHING, I AM REALLY HAPPY. THE OTHER GOOD THING IS YOU CAN ASK FOR ADVICE TOO. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

We were told about this product by a friend (it’s the flex jointcare sprinkles) I was a bit sceptical to be honest, but my big oldish dog was struggling to get up in the mornings so thought it was at least worth a try. And honestly within a week he was back to his old morning self!! We saw a difference in him within a few days really. It’s a shame they don’t sell smaller sample pots as when you’re sceptical you don’t initially feel like trying it (just an idea!) I’ll continue to buy for him, it’s helped his big old joints immensely

Great company very helpful and knowledgeable. After a long chat on the phone I placed an order just before Christmas and it arrived next day. My 2 labradors love the Flex sprinkle and are showing signs of the benefits by moving more freely. Just placed my second order.

You can't beat the best.
My little papillon has been on the Flex Jointcare for a number of years due to various life-long joint and ligament problems. Just recently it was really to prove its worth to me all over again! Buddy has been pretty poorly over a number of months and despite a CT scan nothing conclusive could be found. He was on pretty heavy drugs which I have now weaned him off and onto a natural oil. He was doing really well but then out of the blue started to show signs of distress! Realised that due to him not wanting to eat when he was poorly he had missed out on his Flex Sprinkle for nearly a month! Immediately started him back on a half dose to restart the routine he has been on for a number of years, and to which I have no doubts I owe the fact he is now approaching his 11th birthday and is still with me. Literally within 3 days my little Buddy started to perk up again, and now a week down the line and now back on his full dose of Flex Sprinkle, I have my adored bouncing Buddy back to his old self. I honestly cannot thank Ace-Canine enough for producing this miracle in a tub. I have recommended to so many friends, I have lost count.
