In January I found a sweet little dog on a dog rescue website!  He was found abandoned in an elevator wrapped in a shower curtain.  I was told he had been in the elevator about 9 hours.  He had cherry eye in both eyes and a bad hip!  He was taken to a vet in Los Angeles  who fixed his cherry eyes, neutered him and gave him FHO surgery!  I called and asked about him and I was the only person who had inquired about him,  two days later he joined me and my two pugs in Nevada.  He was a month out from surgery when I got him and I had no idea what FHO even meant!  When I picked him up sometimes he would cry in pain with his hip!  I was afraid to hurt him!  He never used his back left leg and hopped around on three legs!  So after about week I googled FHO and learned what the surgery was!  Lucky,  I also saw Top Dog Health and the recovery program for dogs!  I read the entire program and started that day!  Thank God for you all!!!  My dog Tazzy is doing so well and uses his leg most of the time!  If he over uses it he will limp occasionally!  Your program is wonderful and I’m so appreciative as my new family member is happy and doing well!

Dr. James,

I have a 4 year old Doberman girl who had TPLO surgery on both knees a month ago.  I started giving her GlycanAid before surgery and followed your recommendation for rehabilitation right after surgery. We got her to loose 15 lbs ( from 97 to 83 lbs now).

It seems that she is almost 100 % better. She is ready to run and jump, but we keep her on leash, and walking for 15 min 2 – 3 times a day as you recommended.  We saw her doctor this weekend, and he was very pleased with the results of her rehabilitation.

Thank you very much for your help, advise, and the GlycanAid product.

Last year, we started seeing some trembling in our 10yr old German Shorthaired Pointer, Josey’s, hind legs.  We noticed that she would get up really slowly and seemed to be stiff.  At that time, I did a little research and purchased GlycanAid HA Factor.  Josey had immediate, noticeable improvement with her mobility and continues to benefit as time goes on.  She yummys them down like treats!

I took the bottle with me to her last veterinary appointment and got the thumbs up from our vet. Last month, my mom mentioned that her two dogs, also getting up in age, were having some similar mobility issues.  I recommended GlycanAid HA Factor.  She recently shared that her dogs love their new “treats” and that she can see a difference in them already.

Thank you, thank you, Dr. St. Clair and Top Dog Health!

Hi Dr. James,

I completed your 12 week survey but wanted to share my Grandog Quinn’s story with you.

My 5 1/2 year old  English yellow lab, Grandog, Quinn had both cruciates torn when he had his first surgery in January.  The more recent tear was repaired because he had more strength in the other leg for post op recovery.    I was limited with rehab with the first surgery because he would become lame in the still torn cruciate in the other leg. The second repair was done 7 weeks ago.  He is recovering beautifully and I am now able to fully use your rehab program following the second surgery.  Quinn is also doing water treadmill therapy.

I tried conservative treatment for almost a year when Quinn was diagnosed with a strain.  It was no fun with his size and energy level!    I made an appointment for acupuncture with another Vet, Dr. Jerry Scheck In Hopewell Junction, N.Y.  after Quinn pulled the leash out of my hand and chased a rabbit, remaining lame without recovering like he did in the past.   He confirmed that the ACL was torn and Quinn needed surgery.   The second tear occurred just before his scheduled surgery.  The main reason I pursued conservative treatment was that I was uncomfortable with the invasive procedures of the TPLO and TTA.  I had pursued the fish line repair but Quinn was too big for that procedure.    Dr. Scheck  told me of the Fibular Head Transposition repair done in his office by  Dr. DeAngelis.  Dr. DeAngelis is known for his surgery called the “DeAngelis Technique”.  He is semi retired and travels to local offices doing the Fibular Head Transposition repair.  And this is only 1 hour from where I live!

Up until then, only the TPLO had been recommended to me by every Vet I went to.  I scheduled the surgery with Dr. DeAngelis and you know the rest of the story.

I certainly hope I made the right surgical decision but so far all is going great.  Life has a way of working out!

It has been a long New York winter with two surgeries.  Spring is here and Quinn and I will soon be hiking our together again!

I enclosed some pictures of Quinn.   His baby photo won a photography contest!  He is beautiful and as you can tell, we love him dearly.

Thank you for all your guidance.  You perform a wonderful service!

Hi, Dr. J.,

I ordered the Glycanaid HA when my  8 year old Cocker Spaniel was scheduled for ACL surgery in February.  He is a healthy, happy dog, typical of his breed.  I started the supplement a week after his surgery and he is doing well.  Cocker’s just aren’t designed for jumping at the back fence to talk to the neighbors.  Or maybe it is the landing they are not designed for.  Straight up, straight down, ouch.

When I took him to his vet, for his six week follow up I let his vet know that he was on the supplement.  He said Sammy Joe was coming along well and that he should benefit by staying on the Glycanaid HA as too often dogs develop some arthritis at the site.

We also talked about our older Lhasho Apso, Buster, who is 14 and has severe arthritis in his front legs.  He has a regular regimen of Rimadyl each day to ease his discomfort.  We decided to put Buster on the supplement as well.  What a surprise!  Buster is moving better than he has in years.  He is more lively and really gets into his short daily walk again.  He still doesn’t hear or see well but, his quality of life has improved a lot.

Both dogs have more energy and freedom of movement.  An unexpected benefit to be sure.

Dr. St Clair,  Thank you for your free manual download that I referred to daily during our 100 lb Ridgeback- Sheppard mix recovery from TPLO surgery. Your encouraging e-mails and reminders as to what I should be doing to help rehab. Jed, got us through this rigorous post op rehab.  He is doing very well and has free run now of his 4 acres.with no limping.  The only problem was during rehab.3 times per day, 7/8 of a mile each he walked and trained on leash, he marked his territory, and thinks he owns the neighborhood and is very territorial.  When we walk off our property he is on leash. Thank you again for all your support.

Hi, Dr. J.,

We LOVE Glycanaid. Thank you. I feel as if you’ve added a year or so on to our 14 year border collie’s life. He has so much more energy to run and his legs rarely collapse since he’s been on the supplement. And he likes the way they taste too. You rock!


P.S. Shadow is 14 years old in July. He’s a border collie, chow, lab mix. Super smart and his mind is still very active. He runs faster than me on most walks since using Glycanaid. :)

Shelby had her TPLO surgery on Jan. 13,2014. Shelby is a Aussie cattle dog/Siberian Husky weighing in at 50.1 lbs. the date of surgery.

I give all my thanks to the manual on care downloaded free from TopDog. Without that I was in the dark as to how to give her the care she needed. Not affording professional help I used the guidelines given.  With that and adding the GlycanAid HA to her diet, we have come through with flying colors.

Our surgeon says she is healed 100 percent and she has no limping at all. She is now off leash for most of the day only back on when circumstances require it ( neighbors dog out, squirrel harassing her or the stray cats) to control the running.

I am proud to say I am 75 years old and both dogs (Chelsey, Aussie/border collie) walk our mile or two everyday.

Thank you so much for all the help.

My baby boy Buster is the love of my life, but things have not always been easy for him.  Due to genetics, at a young age, Buster required surgery to replace the ACLs in both knees.  In addition, Buster suffers from severe seasonal allergies and the only effective treatment for relief was steroids. Needless to say, this remedy caused Buster to gain a significant amount of weight and limit his mobility.

Once arthritis sent in a couple of years ago, Buster began to limp, and I feared that my faithful companion would never be able to go on long walks with me ever again.

Fortunately that same year while attending the New England Pet Expo, I was educated about the natural benefits of GlycanAid.  I ordered some of the HA-Factor version of this product and started giving Buster two GlycanAid chewable tablets every day.  In a short period of time, not only did Buster’s lameness go away, but he seemed more energetic and was interested in going on longer walks.

I religiously give Buster his GlycanAid tablets every day which he enjoys as a tasty treat.  Please see the attached picture for proof of that.  My never-ending gratitude goes out to Top Dog Health organization for giving my boy his mobility back.  You have helped to make me one happy dog owner and have made Buster the world’s Happiest Puggle.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
