– A testimonial from a former Green Dog employee, Becky, about Four Leaf Rover’s Green Eggs:
“Greta (an older girl) was limping pretty badly on Monday . Her hips have been pretty sore and it caused her to fall on Sunday evening and hurt her leg a bit. A day after starting the powder she has stopped limping and her legs and hips seem better . Plus she can get up and down more easily than she has for awhile .
– Gail K: “Our 7 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback was having joint problems, slight limping. Vet X-rayed and found mild arthritis but it seemed he was limping more. I purchased the Green Eggs, while not immediately, but after a few weeks he was limping less. Now, on our third jar, he’s not limping at all. He also loves the taste”.
– Robin R:” My 11 year old Brittany was showing signs of discomfort. She was no longer being her active self, running around exploring off trail on our daily hikes. She had begun to walk stiffly and I was worried about possible arthritis setting in. Thankfully, after a couple of weeks on Green Eggs she is back to her active happy self with no signs of stiffness Read more about review stating Green Eggs worked to relieve my Brittany’s stiffness.”
– Donna C: “My young Shiloh Shepherd became lame and was scheduled for TPLO surgery. Between hydro therapy and green Eggs Joint and Mobility Support he is running and jumping. Cancelled the surgery!
Dolly T: “I can’t say enough about this product!!! We were a hair’s width away from putting one of our chihuahuas down because of excessive health problems. We bought this and almost immediately we saw drastic improvements in her life!!!! All I can say is hallelujah to green eggs!! ”
Rosa R: “Great product for TPL surgery recovery! My Chocolate lab had TPL surgery and her other leg had a slight tear in it. They wanted to do surgery but because of the pandemic I held off and decided to give her this product, I have been using it for over 9mths now and my girl is really doing well, she doesn’t limp anymore and she can be off-leash now more often. I am very pleased with this product.

Remember: We think it’s a good rule of thumb to introduce all new supplements slowly. Start with a pinch and increase in small amounts towards the full dosage to avoid digestive surprises or unknown sensitivities to certain ingredients.
