The Vet Diagnosed My Dog with Severe Spinal Arthritis
On Mother’s Day, May 9, 2021, Sunna started having trouble walking, stumbling on steps, wobbling. She got steadily worse, losing control of her hind legs. We saw the vet, and x-rays showed dog with severe spinal arthritis to recover. Most of her spine fused with probable nerve damage. They prescribed pain medications and then suggested euthanasia. I was shocked, I’ve had Sunna since she was four months old, and she has always been super active, high-energy, and happy.
I Found Nzymes® While Searching the Internet
I began searching the internet for for something that could help my dog with severe spinal arthritis to recover. Somehow that day I noticed Nzymes® on my computer, and I followed the links.Their site sounded good and the mobility videos impressed me, but I was skeptical. I ordered the Nzymes TREATS on May 17, 2021 and made the post office staff mad at me for pounding on their door after hours to pick it up on May 20. I didn’t want to waste a day. By the time I started her on Nzymes®, Sunna could not walk – at all – on her own! As seen (at the start of) her recovery video, I used a sling to help raise her hind legs, as sometimes – with the severe spinal arthritis – she would just drag on the toes, and get crossed up. Also, she wasn’t drinking water, so I had to force water into her mouth. It seemed hopeless.
Nzymes Antioxidant Treats Arrived – May 20th
On day 8, she showed more energy and walked a little bit better. On day 9, she sat in the yard and watched while I was working. Suddenly she got up and ran out of the yard, down the driveway, and the road for about 150 feet. She was galloping! I couldn’t believe it! Since then, I’ve let her walk more on her own. I let her off the leash while in our yard, so there would be no more runs down the road! She is still pretty shaky and needs help getting up. But she is dragging her feet less and able to walk a much greater distance without assistance.
Today, day 11, we started prednisone. I figure the Nzymes® will help her body deal with the steroids while they do their thing to help reduce the inflammation. I can hardly believe the miracle that is happening. I’m so hopeful for the future after witnessing my dog with severe spinal arthritis recover! Wait until you see day 12 and day 21 on the Video.
Thank you, Nzymes,

Follow up Remarks and Progress Reports
Email Remarks from Ann, October 19, 2021:
Sunna continues to get stronger and happier. I would say the pace of change is slower, but her progress seems steady. When my RV friends see her after a month, they all comment on how much better she seems. They’ve seen her every month since May or June. I’ve taken a few videos where she is running and chasing a ball, one of her favorite activities.
I have increased the GRANULES to almost 2 teaspoons twice a day. Her consumption however is erratic and she doesn’t always eat her whole serving of food. When she doesn’t eat most of a meal, I supplement her with a TREAT, plus always a TREAT at bedtime. I’ve been experimenting with different food products trying to improve the quality but also give her food she is likely to eat with enthusiasm.
New Video Updates & Remarks from Ann’s Personal Version of Sunna’s Story
September 2021, Hiking: In September we started hiking up the hill behind my property – it’s pretty steep and the loop trail takes over an hour. I started slowly and watched Sunna for signs of pain the day afterwards, and didn’t see any issues. We have walked these trails since she was a puppy. She loves it! We try to walk the loop at least several times a week. We usually walk an average of 2 miles a day, 3 or 4 on hiking days. This helps her build strength plus it’s good for me too!
October RV Camping: October 6th – Sunna had a full blood panel done at the vet’s (annual checkup). Her vet called to say that her results were PERFECT, there was nothing that needed attention! She even had had indications of an enlarged heart in 2019 and 2020, but that was GONE! Vet asked if I had changed her diet. Well, yes, I have tried to improve the quality of her food AND she’s been taking Nzymes Antioxidents for almost 6 months.
October 26, 2021: We’ve been busy. Several camping trips in my RPod trailer. By October, she didn’t need the ramp to get up into the trailer. And she goes up and down stairs in the house with ease. She has been steadily progressing. Her gait is smoother (near end of video), she runs much more often, her spirit is alive and well. I know that because she’s been getting her toys out of the basket, something she had not done for a long time. And she still loves to chase her ball. I don’t throw it as far as I used to, but again, her spirit shows. She has been climbing up into her favorite chair more frequently and on October 25th she was able to jump up onto my bed!! I gave her a boost at the end, but she did most of the work!
