Rose-Hip Vital (RHV) was initially recommended to me by a colleague. Since I have had much earlier experience with rosehips while living in Denmark, where I was in love with the rosehip (hyben) jam and a powdered concentrate made into a warm drink, I was extremely curious about what benefits RHV could provide to my patients.

Soon after contacting RHV directly, they helped me by generously providing some products to trial on a variety of cases. The cases included:

  • an equine veterinarian with spinal pain and daily consumption of ibuprofen,
  • a fussy Thoroughbred in race training that would not eat and maintain weight,
  • two horses suffering from insect bite hypersensitivity (receiving corticosteroids and antihistamines daily),
  • a geriatric equine patient with “sidewinder syndrome” (spinal osteoarthritis) and
  • another human with plantar fasciitis were our case studies

 

The results were astounding after just a few weeks: the equine vet was not reaching for the ibuprofen anymore, the fussy Thoroughbred was eating everything and winning races, the horses with the insect bite hypersensitivity were no longer rubbed raw and the other medications had been stopped when RHV started, the geriatric patient’s gait improved dramatically so he could walk straight, and the plantar fasciitis patient could start to run again.

Since then I have used RHV in horses recovering from severe infections and colic surgery, as well as horses, humans and dogs with osteoarthritis.  I have really liked their friendly and approachable service, the quality and consistency of the product and how all the animals love it! The geriatric patient would have his mouth open and ready as we syringed it into his mouth each day.

I found the experience since using and supplying RHV for myself and for friends or clients to always be a positive one.  I am still excited when I hear positive feedback from clients when they have started using it on themselves, their dogs or their horses.

I would recommend Rose-Hip Vital to anyone looking to reduce their reliance on anti-inflammatory medication for osteoarthritis or an immune boost when recovering from surgery or illness.

What I don’t recommend is that you stop taking it!  Your aches and pains return and you find yourself reaching for the paracetamol or ibuprofen.

I have trialled many joint supplements over my years as a Veterinarian and I have finally found a supplement that ticks all the boxes.  It is a natural product that supports the entire animal and is well tolerated by the digestive system. I have seen first hand the benefits in both my own and clients horses and dogs.

I have swapped many clients over from other premium joint products to Rose-Hip Vital and the clients are commenting on the obvious difference in their animals. The differences are in behaviour, comfort, mobility, reduction in joint effusion, improved range of motion, improved coat condition, improved top line, performance and hoof health in horses and general wellbeing. The animal’s ability to heal from my ABM treatments is also greatly enhanced.

I now feel confident to recommend a joint product to my clients that has the scientific backing and that I not only use personally but have great faith in as a holistic veterinary therapist.

I have used Rose-Hip Vital Equine for over 18 months in performance horses of all disciplines and continue to be impressed by the results. It appears to have useful anti-inflammatory properties resulting in a reduction of pain, inflammation and even lameness in a number of horses with osteoarthritis. Some of the most noticeable results have been seen in older horses with chronic lameness conditions. Additional benefits include appetite stimulation and reduction of inflammatory and allergic skin conditions.

As a professional equine bodyworker for over 10 years, and a trainer prior to that, I know the importance of joint health. Joint pain and dysfunction should be considered from a whole horse point of view. Through the fascial system one unhappy joint can create a myriad of negative changes in the horse’s body affecting: performance, trainability, temperament, recovery, muscle condition, digestive health and saddle fit.

When Dr Raquel Butler mentioned Rose-Hip Vital as a viable joint supplement I did some research into the product and then recommended it to my clients. The feedback has been positive, both from my clients and from the horse’s themselves. The horse’s body tells me when it is feeling more comfortable, areas that were tight due to compensation become freer and muscle rebuilds in a normal pattern.

Dogs in my practice have also gained new enthusiasm for life on Rose-Hip Vital Canine.

As Rose-Hip Vital appears to be gentle on the stomach I gave it a go for myself and I feel so much better, not just my joints but muscles as well. Of course I was silly enough to stop taking it for a while and quickly realised the benefits I was missing!

I have been using Rose-Hip Vital Equine on both my dressage horses for a few years now. The horses are both Australian Warmbloods doing dressage, the 11yo is competing advanced and the 5yo is competing novice. With the horses being young and having no joint disease I am aware of, it was hard to know what to expect from the product. I started using Rose-Hip Vital on the recommendation of a very knowledgeable client. I always like to try products on my own animals first before I recommend them to clients.

Another part of my rationale for trying Rose-Hip Vital on my horses is a sort of preventative management for them. I hope to have both of them sound for as long as possible. The most outstanding part of the response I noted in both horses in the 3-4 weeks after I started them on Rose-Hip Vital was a noticeable calming effect which was a bit of a surprise to me. They also both appeared to look really glossy and fat in the months after starting Rose-Hip Vital and I put this down to the effect of bioflavonoids. As I have already said it’s hard to monitor joint effects when I am not aware of any pre-existing disease.

A few years down the track and both horses are still maintained on very minimal feed and both continue to look and feel well and also continue to be sound and perform well. Very recently I have decided to try the product on myself as well because unlike the horses my joints can ache and I’m interested to
