Embracing the Golden Years with Gusto Joey's journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. At 15 and a half years old, he's seen it all – from youthful exuberance to the inevitable challenges that come with age. A torn ACL, a rear right TPLO surgery, and a victorious recovery were just chapters in Joey's adventurous life. But as time passed, osteoarthritis cast a shadow over him, threatening to take away his mobility, his joy, and the essence of who he was.

A Glimpse of Desperation and a Ray of Hope For his devoted family, seeing Joey struggle was a heart-wrenching experience. Despite their best efforts, his mobility was compromised, and even simple movements became challenging. Desperate for a solution, they turned to their veterinarian, Dr. Diane Levitan, for guidance.

Filled with compassion and determination, Dr. Levitan introduced Joey's family to a novel approach – an injection into Joey's knee joint with Spryng™. They embarked on an unexpected journey with this new hope on the horizon.

Within days of receiving the Spryng™ injection, the unimaginable happened. Joey, who had struggled to stand and walk, was not just getting on his feet again; he was reveling in his newfound mobility. The change was nothing short of miraculous. Joey's family witnessed physical progress and a revival of his spirit with every step he took.

"Within days of the injection, we truly could not believe what we were seeing. Joey was not only getting up on his own and walking around, but within a week or so afterward he was back on the trails, slowly walking around and enjoying the great outdoors once again. We were amazed, even in tears, as we could not believe that we had our dog back and that was at 14 years of age at that time too! " - Judd Spodek, Sit Happens
