Thread: Sasha's Blend

  1. #1

    Default Sasha's Blend

    Over the last week I have been discussing my Zigby's Hip Dyplasia - I have many recommendations for supplements some of which I was already giving him. I have investigated Sasha's blend and was thinking of using that as it seems to have everything we would need for him. Has anyone used it for the fur friend with Hip Dysplasia? Would you recommend it?
    I have also started feeding him Barf - it has taken nearly two weeks for him to eat all the serving size - he has been fussy with raw food from the start so I have given him a mix of tin and dry usually a brand from the vet.
    I have learnt a lot from Zigby's condition particularly about nuitrition, I wish I had the kowledge with my previous dogs - I thought mixed breeds were bullet proof, sadly I am wrong!

    Hi Kate,

    Not an uncommon misconception that (crosses being "invincible" or hybrid vigour as it is called) sadly most people don't find out the truth until they have a dog that becomes unwell, like you and me.

    Glad to hear you have transitioned Zigby to a raw food diet, I believe it will make a big difference to Zigby over the years.

    Personally I haven't used Sasha's Blend but have heard good things about it from others.
    I used a different supplement for a while but can't for the life of me remember what it is called at the moment, I will try to find it.
    I have also heard good things about Joint Guard and Glyde but haven't used those either. Still can't find the one I used.

    Your best option is to see a good holistic/chiropractic vet as they will be able to recommend you the best supplement for your dog and dosages etc. They will also be able to give you things you would never consider using like Chinese herbs etc.

    ETA - A good starting point is to go to your local chemist or supermarket and get some Fish Oil and Glucosomine Tablets both of these ingredients are very good for your dogs general health and joints.


    ETA2 - Found it - I was using The Missing Link which my chiro vet asked me to give her.

    I can highly recommend Sascha's Blend. I gave it to my mum's boyfriend's dog with pretty bad HD and he had a fast improvement. It took a week or so to kick in but once it did the dog was able to mostly keep up with my dog, and wasn't in as much pain. He was pts two months later because of a tumor sadly though.

    Sasha's blend was recently recommended by a friend who said her dog seemed like a new dog after taking it.

    She did warn that you don't see any effect for weeks, but then suddenly it starts working overnight.

    I did talk to someone else whose dog started getting arthritis symptoms recently and she said her vet recommended a cheaper brand which apparently has exactly the same ingredients: Nature’s Answer Pernaease Powder.

    I use Sasha's blend on a toy poodle. She was extremely lame on one back leg and after x-rays etc the vet told me she would need surgery to fix it and it could take months in recovery. We erred on the side of caution while we checked the bank balance as knee surgery on dogs (esp small ones) is very expensive. We rested her and I began with the Sasha's blend. After several weeks the leg began to get better with a few hops in between and then she recovered, it seems, completely. We are back to walking 4 or 5 kms per day without a problem. So, it seems maybe it was due to the Sasha's which I'm still feeding to her and my younger toy poodle as well.

    I used Sasha's blend on one of my previous newfie's...She had severe Arthritis in he spine. I also used a Bowen Therapist and acupuncture with great success. Abbey seemed in great pain before we started her treatment and we were considering PTS for her. but using the therapies, Sasha's blend, Devil's Claw (herb). NZ mussel extract, Glucosamine/chondrointon and fish oil.

    I also think going RAW is very good for your dog........Good luck and well wishes for your dog
