Zeel or Cholodin Flex?

Rocky and I visited a holistic vet today. He got an extremely thorough exam, including full blood workup that will be sent to Texas A&M for full results.

The vet said that it was good he was taking the Nupro Silver for his arthritis, and recommended I also give products called Zeel and Cholodin Flex. They're pretty affordable so I got both. Was wondering if anyone had experience with either or both products?

I tried Zeel for several months but it didnt help at all. I found that Cartrophen Vet worked best for my dog but it's pretty expensive.

I give Phoenix Zeel for a previous back injury. I take it for my own arthritic knees. I have seen a difference in the before and after I started on the Zeel. It does not happen overnight, but over a course of time, I noticed less pain and more mobility.

My holistic Vet has Phoenix on it in addition to Traumeel on a daily basis. I have a high energy dog who goes at everything 110%. I found that the combination of the two help with the recovery from overuse/traumatic injuries.

Last I checked, this was not available in the U.S., only Canada, Australia, and I think England, though I may be wrong about some of that. The U.S. has Adequan, but many think that the Cartrophen works better.

Wanted to update this thread. Since starting on the Zeel and Cholodin flex, Rocky has been much more playful and active. I even saw him sprinting around and chasing the puppy, something I've never seen him do! He seems much happier and more like his old waggly self. Two thumbs up!
