PostSubject: Devil's Claw   Thu Feb 10, 2011 8:03 pm

Hi!

Does anyone have experience of/views on supplementing their more senior Saint on Devil's Claw to alleviate stiffness due to arthritis/old age/wear-and-tear?

I'm having to think laterally about Han as he also has renal issues. From my digging around, it seems that Devil's Claw doesn't have a significant phosphorus level - which is what I need to watch out for! Any views/opinions/first-hand experience feedback more than welcome!!

Thanks - and come on you herbalists out there...!!!

Hi a friend of mine used caniflex on her dog, think it's from animal health? It's a liquid like devils claw, sure you give 30ml daily, and I'm pretty sure it has devils claw along with other stuff in, she said it worked wonders
hope that helps

Devi;s claw is a natural anti inflammatory.

When I wanted some i looked all over the place for the dog variety & could only find tablets.
I wanted liquid as it gets into the system quicker. It does have to build up in the system, its not as a dose of metacam for example but I have found it very effective.
The kind I found in the end & stuck with is the equine version, called NoBute. If you Google it you get a whole list of horsey sites come up wher you can buy it.

For Saint owners its great as it comes in 500ml, 1 litre & 5ltr bottles. Anything smaller than that doesn't last.

I swear by this stuff & personally have never found any side effects & haven't heard of any

Thanks very much for your feedback - I'm encouraged by your positive experiences of The Claw!

Just for your info, Wendals Herbs do offer a canine liquid DC formulation as well as an equine one - the only difference being in the size of the bottle, as far as I have been able to discover!

I notice that the liquid formulation appears to be suspended in alcohol - do you have a view on this?

I also found quite a variety of both liquids, granules etc for the equine market at my local equine supplier.
