Sunny is a miniature dachshund and one of the loves of my life. She began having disk problems at age 6, which is common for the breed. After the second serious bout the Vet advised me to give her Zeel in a small amount of chicken broth 10 minutes before her meals. Sunny has been on it for months without an inkling of a problem. She runs and plays with the younger dog and the Vet is very impressed with her flexibility. Of course nothing works on its own. We help her stretch and exercise those muscles that support her spine, and I'm very strict about her diet. However, Zeel helped us get to the point where she is and is helping her live the happy life she had before the disk problems began.
