Joints - Large 400g
- WHY CHOOSE JOINTS?
- unique quadruple action Veterinary Formula developed over 25 years
- proven in clinical veterinary practice
- 100% natural, human food grade ingredients
- NO fillers, preservatives, synthetic ingredients or chemical additives of any kind
- NO ‘loading’ dose required
- fast acting with visible benefits typically seen within weeks, sometimes days
- HIDDEN CHANGES WARNING OF STIFFNESS & LOSS OF MOBILITY AHEAD
Age related degenerative joint changes typically begin in many dogs from 6 years of age onwards (often earlier in medium and large breeds).
- loss of elasticity of the articular cartilage (which over time can become brittle and develop fissures / splits)
- thinning of lubricating joint fluid (which becomes more like water than engine oil)
- stiffening of supporting ligaments
- weakening of surrounding muscles and bones
Although in the early stages these deteriorations in joint structures can’t be seen, they will inevitably impact mobility, activity and quality of life over time.
Fortunately, early supplementation with Joints helps the body to maintain mobile and flexible joints, far better than it would be able to without.
And this is highly beneficial for any dog approaching middle age.
- CRUCIATE LIGAMENTS
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) damage / rupture is common in dogs, especially in medium and large breeds.
This typically causes the affected knee to become:
- inflamed and
Surgery is frequently undertaken to restore limb function and prevent further injury to the joint, which over time can adversely affect mobility.
To ensure a rapid return to full limb function, and minimise the onset of stiffness later on in life, it is important to provide the best possible natural support during and after convalescence.
This can be done as follows:
Give 2-3 drops 3 times daily following surgery, and continue until normal activity is resumed, which is typically 6-12 weeks (may be longer for some dogs).
- aids self-repair
- soothes soreness
- relieves discomfort
- supports a rapid return to full health
Add to diet daily to:
- provide the building blocks the body needs to build healthy muscles, tendons, ligaments, bone, joints and joint lubricating 'oil'
- support strength in the opposite knee, which ruptures in more than 50% of dogs within a few months or years of the first ACL injury
Long Term Impact
Stiffness inevitably develops at some stage following cruciate ligament damage.
Although supplementation with Joints along with physiotherapy / hydrotherapy / canine massage can delay this for many years, additional help is often necessary as dogs age. This can be provided by giving Vince the Vet Joint Support remedy too, which naturally eases discomfort in joints and further aids ease of movement.
For the best results, give 2-3 drops three times daily.
This can be continued along with Joints indefinitely.

This is great stuff it really is! I’ve tried so many different joint supplements for my dog. My two oldest both have arthritis. Billy had double elbow surgery in December and I started Joints the day after. I’m certain the Joints helped his healing, as even the surgeon was amazed as both elbows had large fissures which had screws placed in. My older lad has chronic arthritis in most joints, and he’s now on Joints powder and Joint Support remedy, and it’s helping him I’m sure.
Joints is not just for animals. I've taken it for arthritis in my fingers. There has been a massive improvement after three weeks. So that's me and my dog Murphy that think it's a great product!
We have an adorable Heinz 57 from the streets of Portugal. We did a DNA test on Murphy (surprisingly cheap and very accurate) and it revealed his main breed (of 5) was Cavalier. This went some way to explaining why he was sometimes kicking his back leg out when he walked as Cavaliers have a predisposition to a 'floating patella' (literally a kneecap that slips out of place then rights itself with a quick flick). Vince recommended putting him on Joints, not only to help stabilise the joint but also to help delay the onset of arthritis in the future. Murphy's been on the Joints powder for about three years now and hasn't done his kicking and flicking dance routine once! It's a wonderful product. Thank you!
Excellent products, I have my Mastin on ‘Joints ‘ and Digestion I am over the moon with the results from both products! Long story really but I will try to make it more brief! I have three rescues, Darcy, my Spanish Mastin was in a kill shelter at 11 months, she was very lame, we adopted her and X-rays revealed a badly broken hip and tail. She went on to have a full hip replacement at 18 months old. It is a great success - both her legs are a little twisted but they work! She’s now 5. I’ve had her on other natural supplements, not wanting to give her prescription drugs until absolutely necessary but with age I thought I would have to. Then I found your Joints supplement. I can honestly say I saw a big improvement within two weeks! She is showing no sign of pain..... to the point of being somewhat naughty! Dare I say, ignoring my commands and chasing a Muntjac through the woods! She’s a big girl too at 54 kilos. I sprinkle some on my other dogs dinner too. Darcy caught a bad gastric bug that was going around to the point we went to an emergency vet as I was afraid with all that gas of bloat. She was prescribed some probiotics but I wasn’t happy as they were full of wheat, didn’t seem to help much and my dogs are raw fed. I put her on your Digestion product and we have no more gurgling stomach. I am keeping her on it too. Thank you so very much from Darcy and me.
I have changed Harley over from a well known joint supplement for older dogs to your JOINTS, and it is like having a 14 year old puppy now! I can?t believe the difference in her mobility.? No more stiffness or stumbling when out on walks.
Fantastic product. We can really notice the difference in our 11 year old Labrador.
My old man, Rocky, thanks to the joints supplement, the stiffness in his legs has reduced and he is still able to walk around 3/4 miles with no stiffness, and he has great fun at the beach! He has such a cheeky streak and is just a very happy boy,
My 10yr old Schnauzer was starting to get stiff in the mornings. This was recommended over a well known product. Such a difference the past few months! She gets up in the morning like a younger dog. And still leaps onto our high bed although I try to stop her when I can!
Quick delivery.. a product that makes a difference and works!
Brilliant product which has made such a difference to my 12 year old greyhound.
We tried this product after recommendation from the supplier who we met at the National Pet Show. We give it to our Springer Spaniel but we were told that it was human quality too. We have been taking it for about a year now and have definitely seen improvement especially in my partner's knee joints. He's a Gas Engineer and has suffered with his knees for years. It's taken a while but he suddenly realised that he is in nowhere near as much pain as he had been and we are putting that down to Joints... thank you Vince the Vet! Also the dog goes mad for his "milk" in the morning!
Our 11 year old Labrador was really starting to struggle after going for a walk, and sometimes couldn't put his back leg down whilst trying to eat. I started to give him Vince the Vet supplements Joints and Immunity, as he also has warts and fatty lumps, as well as salmon oil and the difference in just 2 weeks is amazing! He hasn't had any trouble with his legs since and seems so much happier. I highly recommend Vince the Vet supplements.
Been using this now for a few weeks and slowly bringing his walk up to what we use to do. Fabulous joint supplement!
We are into day 11 or 12 of the supplements, all are accepting them well. Really positively, we have seen a marked improvement in Ruby. More specifically her gait has changed a lot. She still has obvious weakness in her left knee /stifle but instead of hobbling in a bouncy way, her back is straight and she is clearly taking more weight with no ill effect. It?s really great to see , so we are hopeful her ligament continues to heal! Thanks, Heather
This was bought for my Mum?s four year old Saluki. He runs very fast (as most hounds do!) but was limping afterwards and clearly in some pain. After four weeks on the Joint supplement, the limping completely stopped and hasn?t been a problem since. My Mum is thrilled with the results and Lenny will be staying on this supplement long term. Highly recommended, a quality and trusted product by Vince the Vet.
Hi Vince the Vet... I just wanted to update you on my Rottweiler Dexter. 2 weeks since we started using your Joints supplement, and I have to say it's like a miracle!!! He has a new lease of life and has stopped limping... he used to be so stiff in the evening - as if he just seized up - but now he is amazing! No pain and has so much more energy on his walks. I cannot recommend this product enough to anyone who has similar problems with their big dogs! Thank you, and I will keep him on this.
I'm on week 3 for Thunder and starting to see a huge difference. Thunder is 10 years old and has very bad hips. I've noticed that he's moving around a lot better.
Superb product and works a treat on my Leonbergers - no sign of stiffness when given as a daily supplement.
I had suggested the Joints supplement to a friend for her elderly dog and it had made a huge difference to his ability to get out and about for walks in his last year. Our older pony, Cindy, a 22 year old New Forest, was looking and feeling a bit stiff last winter. I wondered if Joints was suitable for ponies and messaged Vince to ask. His prompt (as always) response was that it was safe and he explained how the ingredients worked and that they had been researched and found to be highly beneficial for joints, joint fluid, tendons, ligament, and bones in equines. I started Cindy on Joints at Vince's recommended dose of two teaspoons, twice a day if I could, or three teaspoons once a day, and after a couple of weeks began to notice that Cindy seemed more comfortable. I later added in MSM which seemed to help also. I did at one point try another combined equine supplement designed for joints as it contained the MSM and some of the other ingredients, but it didn't seem to have the same effect. So I went straight back to the real deal and she has been on Vince the Vet Joints ever since.
Just would like to say how great your Joints and Immunity products are, and I will definitely be recommending them to my clients, as I'm a professional dog trainer. Thank you very much.
Hi I just wanted to say a massive thank you. My Belgian Malinois went really lame on her elbow just as we went into Lockdown, so I made her rest. We were about to go the whole X-ray route, until I was pointed in your direction. So I decided to by the Joints powder even though I was very sceptical about it working. After about a week I could see a huge improvement and by week 2 all the swelling had gone and she only has a minor slight limp. I also decided to get her the Vitality powder and only after a few days she was bouncing about playing with my other dogs, she's more alert and her coat is really soft. I definitely recommend your products and I've started recommending you to all my clients (I'm a trainer and behaviourist).Again thank you from Bugg and myself!
I have used this supplement for my large Rottweiler for some years now and when I recently ran out I could tell that she was missing it due to her sore joints. I do use glucosamine supplements in addition but I feel that the collagen is of particular benefit to her.
All my 3 doggies have been on this for over 2 years now. Don?t waste your money on anything before you give this a go....you will see results before any of the others. I?ve got two doggies with arthritis both age 12 years old, started to see stiffness several years ago due to past operations and metal work installed. This has been a godsend for them both with regards to stiffness and keeping them mobile. My other doggies hasn?t got any joint issue but he gets it also to keep the joints and surrounding tissues healthy.
I would just like to say we have been using your Joints product on our ex-racing greyhound Joe for a while now. He was, apparently, very successful in his day, but seemed to have thrown his last race!!! Joe is 10 and a half now and was obviously having trouble with his joints. Ex-racers are very prone to arthritis and he was becoming stiff. We had tried various products, not really knowing if they were easing any pain he may have been in as there was no noticeable difference in his behaviour. However once we started him on your Joints product, following recommendation from a Facebook friend, the difference in him was noticeable in, literally, about 10 days. He now bounds up to another dogs to play, does the odd zoomie and does his ?greyhound spins? again in the garden. It is as if it has taken years off his life. I have recommended this product on Facebook and personally to people with both dogs and cats and they have all said they have noticed a difference in their pets. It really does do what it says on the tin!! Thank you so much for such a wonderful product.
Super helpful customer service. Outstanding. The product is also very good. We believe it's really giving our almost 13 year old greyhound relief from his arthritis. He certainly runs round like a puppy at times. Thank you.
We have tried many different joint supplements over the years, including the popular well known brands like yumove and products available only from the vets. Vince the Vet Joints is absolutely the best one. Difference in the dog can be seen within days instead of building the product up for weeks. I have recommended for friends and they have been as delighted with the results too. Our 6 Giant dogs say thank you Vince!
Fergus is my almost 11 year old German Shepherd Dog who was diagnosed with severe arthritis aged 2 and a half when we adopted him. This condition has progressively worsened and I?ve done my best over the years to keep him pain free, mobile and happy. He is thriving on your Joints, Immunity, Vitality and Digestion powders as well as the Joint Support liquid. They have definitely helped him with regard to his joint discomfort and his health in all other areas is (touch wood!) great. Thank you Vince for these products and also your great customer service and very generous invaluable advice.
The reason we started using the joint supplement was that our then 12 year old Golden Retriever bitch was clearly suffering when out walking, and it was recommended as a potential benefit. Our now 13 and a half year old dog has had a new lease of life, and is happily walking with our 3 year old Retriever, albeit at her own pace, but clearly enjoying every moment. We have recommended the supplement to many people, all who have reported beneficial effects to their dogs. Wonderful stuff, thank you!
Hi, I emailed about my young Rottweiler who has just had a cruciate ligament operation at only 18 months old. She has been on Joints for 7 weeks and when we went back to Rutland House for her post op X-rays, they said the healing was fantastic - at the high end of healing! Over the moon, thanks!
I've only started my greyhound on your Joints formula today, and incredibly he's showing signs of improvement already!
I cannot thank you enough for the Joint Supplement, which I have been giving to our beautiful 12 year old rescue dog, Murphy. He was so lame with his arthritis that we found it necessary to restrict his walks, and therefore his food - which he wasn?t impressed with! Six weeks later we have our happy boy back, running through the sand dunes once again, and enjoying his normal walks. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
My dog's name is Holly. She is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and is nearly 11 years old. Holly has had problems with her joints and since I switched to Vince the Vet JOINTS from another supplement, she?s now playing and full of life again. She's also able to walk better and in no pain. It's amazing and I have recommended it to a lot of friends and family!
This supplement is amazing stuff. I was using a well know brand which was ok, the transformation since using this is phenomenal!
I would highly recommend this. I have been using Vince the Vet Joints for about 13 months now on my two senior Staffys. It?s been a Godsend. I would not be with out it.
I got JOINTS for my dog. My God it works wonders Vince! Thank you for inventing this. Dora is 4 year old and her knees were clicking. Went to Otley and Kathryn said to try this, it works well. Vince, one week down the line no clicks in her joints!
I?ve been using your joint supplement now for over a month with Merlin. Merlin is a blue merle 15/5 y/o BC with bilateral congenital HD. He is raw fed, homeopathically treated, has regular chiro and nutraceuticals. I started seeing him get out of his basket more easily and move from lying to standing with less struggle, then I noticed he was striding out on his walks more and was able to walk further without tiring. And recently he has become more playful bringing toys to play tug. I am pleasantly surprised at the improvement in him which, to be perfectly honest, I wasn?t expecting! I thought he would stay about the same however, he has improved in a number of areas in his overall well-being and we are delighted. Thank you so much!!!
Rufus is a 15 yr old 3 legged Bearded Collie and has been really struggling with his legs. I put him on Joints by VTV and within 4 days he was so much better on his legs. Unfortunately due to demand and how successful this is I have not been able to buy any more Joints and Rufus has been without it for getting on 3 weeks and there is a noticeable difference in his mobility. He is really struggling which goes to show just how good this is for him. I will be back giving it to him next Saturday!
Amazing stuff. It has sorted out my husbands knees, my shoulder and my dads neck! Have recommended it to others who have also used it for their joints too and had remarkable changes. In my view not just for pets!!
Just to let know, I ran out of Joints two weeks ago, but have had a bit of a health problem to deal with and kept putting off getting some more. The difference in Corky has been astounding without his Joints. We took so many steps backwards it was quite shocking. I feel sooooo guilty at running out and thinking it would be ok for a while. It certainly is absolute proof to me that JOINT REALLY WORKS." Heather
Jasper has hip issues and your magic joint powder has turned him into a new boy. He is 12 years old and he seems and acts like a dog half his age. We are also giving it to Buster as a preventative measure. Thank you so much for helping them.
I put Charlie on a joint supplement from Vince the Vet.. shes jumping about all over the place. Window sill, back of sofa - love it!
It brings tears of joy to my eyes to see her so happy! Fenella is 13 years old. She is so happy, relaxed and pain free after starting your Joints supplement. Nothing else worked for her. We tried everything including various oils, well known supplements, vet injections, hydrotherapy etc. She's one of my clan of 5. Thank you so much!
Hello! I purchased the Joints supplement for my 8 year Leonberger and it has helped her so much! On my recommendation a few of my puppy families that have younger Leos without issues have asked if the Joints could be given as preventative daily Joint care, to a dog that has no issues? She will be on it for life now! Very happy dog who now sleeps in our bed every night. She was not able to jump on our bed at all before the Joints was added!
Lola is a different dog since being on Joints. Highly recommended! A big thank you to Vince
Since starting the Vince the Vet Joints supplement, it has been 6 months since Bear has needed to use his stroller! It?s wonderful to see him walk longer distances and just be a dog again.

Hi Marie, yes it is, as part of a renal support regime.
As always when CKD is present, regular blood monitoring of SDMA, BUN, Creatinine, calcium and phosphorus levels is important, so that diet (including supplementation) can be adjusted if and when necessary to maintain the highest quality of life.
Thank you for your enquiry. We do ship to Canada. You can order direct through this website.
The ingredients are listed on the products page, and are our own, unique Veterinary Formula blend of:
Hydrolysed Collagen, organic Kelp, Bromelain from pineapples (corn starch used as a carrier) and Hyaluronic Acid.
Good morning Andrienne, thank you for your enquiry.
Joints is the perfect supplement in these circumstances. It provides the body with the nutrients it needs to build and repair ALL joint structures, including muscles, tendons, ligament, bones, fibrous tissues, cartilage and joint lubricating 'oil'. It is very gentle on the stomach, and there is no need to give double the amount to begin with. Improvements in joint comfort and mobility are typically seen in within a few weeks. If there is still a need for additional relief after a month, giving the Joint Support remedy alongside Joints, soothes sore tissues and further aids ease of movement.
For more information on aiding recovery following ACL rupture, take a look at this blog.
Hi Marie, yes it can as it is a completely different formulation.
Many of our customers also find that after a month on Joints, if a significant improvement in mobility is seen, they are able to continue with Joints alone, without any loss of benefits. Do let us know how you get on.
The composition can be found by scrolling down the left hand side of the product page and clicking on the + next to INGREDIENTS to open the data panel.
Joints does not contain glucosamine or chondroitin, as these largely target joint cartilage, whereas Joints provides the building blocks for ALL joint structures, including cartilage, bone, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fibrous tissues and joint lubricating 'oil', And this is why it is so effective at aiding maximum mobility and flexibility. It also supports whole body musculoskeletal health.
You won't see any components listed in mg because Joints is a 100% natural supplement composed of a unique blend of whole foods and whole food extracts. When you see the amount of ingredients in mg, such as glucosamine, for example, it is because they are synthetically manufactured in large scale industrial plants.
Hi Julie, the daily dose (divided between meals) is 1 teaspoon per 10kg bodyweight.
There are approximately 100 teaspoons in a 400g tub. And so this would last one 20kg dog around 7 weeks (50 days). For all 3 dogs it would be 17 days.
The most economical way to order Joints, is to choose one of the multipacks (3 or 6 x400g). Free shipping is also available if the total is £100 plus.
95% of dogs will readily take the Joints powder in any wet food, such as a little live, plain yoghurt, bone broth, or anything similar. In the rare event this doesn't work, the powder can be put into empty gelatine / vegetarian capsules.
Hi Nikki, it is a powder which is easily mixed into any wet food. This can either be the main meals, or an alternative such as plain live, yoghurt, bone broth, unsalted natural gravy, or something similar.
Hi Olwen, there is no reason why Joints and Joint Support can't be given to a diabetic dog.
We recommend using these 2 products together when stiffness is severe, as the results are significantly better than when either is used alone. Joints provides the nutrients the body needs to build the healthiest possible joints. Joint Support soothes sore tissues and further aids ease of movement. They can be purchased as a bundle for a saving of £8 here. Do let us know how you get on, as we may be able to advise further.
Hi Hayley, the composition of Joints can be found under 'INGREDIENTS' on the left hand side of the product page as you scroll down, and is our own, unique Veterinary Formula blend of: Hydrolysed Collagen, organic Kelp, Bromelain from pineapples (corn starch used as a carrier) and Hyaluronic Acid.
It is a completely different formulation from any other product available, and successfully helps 94% of pets (based on the number of 4 and 5 star customer ratings). In our experience (Dr. Vince specialised in orthopaedic surgery for 3 years) Joints is the most effective nutritional support for maximum mobility available.
Hi, the collagen is bovine in origin.
Hi Pam, if stiffness has only just started, giving Joints alone is the first step, as this results in positive changes in mobility in 94% of dogs. Your girl would need 3 teaspoons of the powder daily, divided between meals. This can be mixed into any wet food, such as plain live yoghurt, bone broth, a little natural gravy etc.
If after a month or two there is still room for improvement, giving the Joint Support remedy soothes sore tissues and further aids ease of movement. Both products can be bought together here as a bundle for a saving of £8.
Do let us know how you get on.
No, it is a powdered supplement because if provides the nutritional building block the body needs to from the healthiest possible Joints.
Joint Support is a liquid, but this is designed to soothe sore tissues and aid ease of movement by supporting the body's natural self-repair mechanisms.

Hi Jacqui, the following methods work well for most dogs who are reluctant to take a powdered supplement in food:
1. Mix into wet foods given alongside main meals, such as live, plain yoghurt, bone broth or natural unsalted gravy.
2. Add a little warm water to the raw before feeding, to make mixing the supplements in more palatable.
Do let us know how you get on.
Hi Maria, Joints is safe to use alongside any medication prescribed by a vet. Many pet parents find that after supplementing with Joints for a month (in conjunction with Joint Support drops if stiffness is severe) they are able to reduce the dose of drugs, and in some circumstances, discontinue them altogether. Joints and Joint Support can be bought together as a bundle for a saving of £8 here. Do let us know how you get on.
Hi Serena, yes it would.
This bundle would be even better. Give one and a half teaspoons of the powder twice daily, and 2-3 drops of the liquid remedy 3 times daily.
No it doesn't, as we find the composition of Joints to be far more effective. The full list of ingredients, which can be found on the left hand side of the product page are: a powdered blend of Hydrolysed Collagen (bovine origin), organic Kelp, Bromelain from pineapples (corn starch used as a carrier) and Hyaluronic Acid.
You many also be interested in this bundle which provides even greater benefits.
Joints is highly effective for supporting maximum mobility and ease of movement in cats, particularly when age-related stiffness creeps in. You will only need the 200g sized tub however, as a little goes a long way. And most cat parents find the powder goes down a treat when mixed in with any wet food, or some yoghurt / milk or something similar.
Hi Anna, thank you for your enquiry. The ingredients are listed on the left hand side of the product page as you scroll down, and are: Hydrolysed Collagen (bovine origin), organic Kelp, Bromelain from pineapples (corn starch used as a carrier) and Hyaluronic Acid. Unlike joint supplements which largely rely on chondroitin and glucosamine to help maintain cartilage, Joints provides the nutritional building blocks for ALL musculoskeletal structures, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, joint capsule, cartilage and synovial fluid (joint 'lubricating oil) - which is why it is so effective. Joints also contains only natural ingredients, with no chemical additives of any kind, such as manufactured 'vitamins' such as C and E, and minerals such as manganese. We hope this helps, and do let us know how you get on!
Hi Jayne, Joints is easier to digest than most supplements because of the hydrolysed collagen it contains. Also it provides the nutritional building blocks the body needs to form ALL musculoskeletal tissues, including cartilage, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, fibrous supporting tissues and joint lubricating 'oil'. Glucosamine and chondroitin on the other hand largely support cartilage only. If you try Joints, you may find a digestive support is not necessary. And if you wanted enhanced joint support at any stage, you can purchase Joints and Joint Support as a bundle here, for a saving of £8.
Hi Jan, there's no reason why Joints can't be given in these circumstances, as part of a healthy, balanced diet.
Hi Jennifer, due to an error by the manufacturer, the best before (BB) date on Joints is showing as 09/23 when in fact it should read 09/24, as this product has a minimum shelf life of 3 years.
This will be correct on the new batch ordered, which will be arriving October / November this year.
Yes, it can as long as the regular health checks and blood tests typically carried out for dogs with kidney disease are in place. Also consider giving Joint Support alongside this.
Hi Hilary, the Joints supplement is a brand new batch. The composition and analytic data are identical to previous formulations. The only difference is that the raw ingredients originate from different sources - hence the slight change in colour and texture. This however, does not impact it's effectiveness in any way. Hope this helps.
If you scroll down the page you will see INGREDIENTS on the left hand side. Click on the + alongside to expand the composition panel.
The suggested daily amount = 1 teaspoon per 10g bodyweight daily, divided between meals. A 35kg dog therefore needs 3 and a half teaspoons. A teaspoon equates to around 4g and so your dog would require approximately 10g daily. Based on this a 400g tub would last around 40 days.
All our products are designed to complement each other, so that they can be combined in whatever way is best for a particular pet, to support optimum health and quality of life. And if any advice is ever needed on what to choose and how to do this, we are always more than happy to help.
The most important thing when supplementing the diet of a pet with health issues of any kind, is to only introduce one at a time, and to start with just a 1/4 teaspoon or so initially. Then, if all is going well, the amount can slowly be increased over the following weeks until the suggested daily level is being given (divided between meals).
This is gentle on the digestive system and also avoids a pet being put off their food because it smells or tastes unusual. It's also the best way to confirm that a supplement suits a dog or cat, and is healthy and nutritious to give long-term.
With regards to Vitality, most dogs and cats need multivitamin, mineral and trace element supplementation these days because the food chain is not as rich in these as it used to be. In addition to this, the level of nutrients the body needs to stay healthy in the face of modern day stress and pollution is much higher. Adding Vitality to the diet helps to bridge this gap, by making sure that essential micronutrients which need to be present in the diet each day (because the body can't store or manufacture these for itself) are supplied. This is even more important when there is evidence that the digestive tract is not assimilating nutrients from food effectively - which is often the case when blood folate and B12 levels are low.
IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) as you know, is a descriptive term rather than a specific diagnosis, which means that various parts of the digestive tract are inflamed for some reason. This can be due to dietary sensitivities, parasitic infections, autoimmune diseases and a range of other conditions. It is best to work with your vet to address these and other possible underlying causes for the best possible results.
Such an approach typically includes the following:
- Identifying and avoiding dietary allergens.
- Supporting the gut microbiome with prebiotics (Digestion) and probiotics that have proven to be effective.
- Ruling out worm infections as a contributory factor - which can be done with this kit.
- Providing a rich supply of essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements in an easy to digest and assimilate form, such as Vitality.
- IBD / GI Support Diet - Raw
- IBD / GI Support Diet Home-cooked
- When your pet's food is the enemy - what do you do?
- Probiotics and Prebiotics - What's the difference?
Joints is the supplement of choice for maximising flexibility and mobility.
When stiffness is severe and / or long-standing, giving Joint Support too, further eases discomfort and aids ease of movement.
Both Joints and Joint Support are safe to use alongside any other natural products, and medication prescribed by vets.
The ingredients are listed on the products page, and are our own, unique Veterinary Formula blend of:
Hydrolysed Collagen, organic Kelp, Bromelain from pineapples (corn starch used as a carrier) and Hyaluronic Acid.
A 43kg dog typically requires 2 teaspoons twice daily. Where stiffness or joint pathology is severe, a little more may be necessary - it depends on each individual dog's circumstances. The small tub (200g) is designed for cats and dogs weighing 15kg or less, and the large tub (400g) for medium and large dogs.
If there is still room for improvement after a month of supplementation, giving the Joint Support remedy too, provides additional relied of discomfort, and further aids ease of movement.
Hi Jane, all the remedies are in liquid form.
These are supplied in 50ml dropper bottles, so that a few drops can simply be added to food as directed.
The supplements are all powders, and are supplied in small and large tubs of the specified weight in grams. The appropriate amount can be mixed into any wet meals.
If you scroll down to the heading 'THE DETAILS' on the left hand side of each product page, and click on the + to expand the hidden panel, the information about the make up of each supplement or remedy can be found there.
Hi Sam, we're so sorry to hear of your dogs injuries, you are truly an angel for helping these poor pets. Joints is the perfect choice, as it provides all the nutrients the body needs to build the healthiest possible joins, and to maintain maximum mobility and flexibility. This is especially important for dogs with the kind of problems you describe.
A 4kg dog would need 1/2 (half) a teaspoon daily, divided between meals.
If you enter the following code at checkout - MAXIMUMMOBILITY30 - it will give you a 30% discount off the single tubs of Joints (200g and 400g). This is valid until March 31st 2022 and is single use only, so it would be worth buying as much as you think you may need for the foreseeable future at once.
If at any stage any of your dogs still appear in discomfort, giving the Joint Support drops (2-3 three times daily) will further soothe sore tissues and aid ease of movement.
We hope this helps, and do let us know how you get on.
Hi Bev, thank you for your enquiry. And wonderful to hear you've seen such fabulous results with our supplements. Would love you to email further details of the benefits seen to firstname.lastname@example.org along with some pictures of your boy to share! ????
Yes, it's fine to give the Ultimate Anxiety remedies in raw, or on a small tit-bit. It also helps to add a little to drinking water daily and sprinkle on bedding. This short video explains how they work, and advice on getting the best results. Do keep us posted!
Good morning Karen, and thank you for your enquiry.
Joints is very low in oils and fats (less than 2%) and has virtually no carbohydrate content. The full nutritional analysis figures can be found on the left hand side of the product page, and by expanding the panel 'Ingredients' under the heading 'The Details.'
Hi Damien, thank you for your enquiry.
The optimum dose of the Joints powder is 1 teaspoon per 10kg daily, divided between meals. And so you would be using just under 4 teaspoons daily - 1 for the smaller dog, and 3 for the larger girl. A 400g tub supplies approximately 100 teaspoons, and so would last around 4 weeks (25-28 days). The Joint Support remedy, would last 6 months or more, as the dose is only 2-3 drops 3 times daily, regardless of size. And these can be added to food, and drinking water.
We hope this helps, and do let us know how you get on.
Hi Dawn, thank you for your enquiry.
Yes, all our supplements and remedies are safe to use alongside any medication prescribed by vet. And the sooner they are started the better when any injury has occurred. Guidance on how to provide the best possible nutritional support following cruciate ligament damage can be found here.
It's best to use the two products in combination for the best results in dogs over 10 years of age, and who are either very stiff, or who have struggled with their mobility for some time.
Joints provides all the nutrients the body needs to build the healthiest possible cartilage, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, fibrous supporting tissues and joint lubricating 'oil'.
Joint Support soothes sore tissues, aids the body's natural adaptive and recuperative powers, and further aids ease of movement. See Coco's story here.
Together they provide the best possible support for maximum mobility. Do let us know how you get on.
Hi Sheila, yes we do. USA can be selected as the delivery destination from the drop down postcode list at checkout,
Hi Patricia, the nutritional analysis figures can be found under the heading INGREDIENTS on the left hand side of the product page, as you scroll down. Joints contains less than 2% fats and oils.
Hi Pam, if you scroll down the list of Previous Answers on the Joints 400g product page (underneath the button you used to ask this question) you will see our reply there.
Have also just forwarded this by email.
Hi Patricia, the level of crude oils and fats in Joints is very low - less than 2%.
Information on the composition of this supplement can be found under the heading INGREDIENTS on the left hand side of the page as you scroll down.
They can be bought together as a bundle for a saving of £6 here.
Hi Renée, roughly 1 teaspoon of Joints powder twice daily. A 400g tub would last approximately 7 weeks. Even better results when given with Joint Support remedy. Both can be bought as a bundle for a saving of £8 here. We don't have any suppliers in Australia, unfortunately. Shipping there might be prohibitively expensive, but we could get a quote if you email us at email@example.com
Hi Joanna, Joints is highly effective at easing stiffness, aiding ease of movement and maximising mobility in cats. And in most cases, all it takes is a quarter of a teaspoon twice daily mixed into a little wet food. Do let us know how you get on!
Hi Caroline, a combination of Joints and Joint Support is best in circumstances like this. The former provides all the nutritional building blocks the body needs to create the best possible joints while the latter soothes discomfort and aids pain free movement. Together they enable maximum mobility. They can be bought as a bundle for a saving of £6 here.
Hi Sharon, yes it's beneficial to give Joints to any dog, but especially those prone to musculoskeletal issues of any kind because this supplement provides the nutritional building blocks the body needs to build and maintain the healthiest possible joints, tendons, ligaments, bones, joint fluid, cartilage and supporting fibrous tissues - including intervertebral discs.
Hi Richard - great question! Two things to consider here. Firstly, blood tests for food sensitivities are notoriously unreliable, as they frequently return false positive and false negative results. This essentially means that if IgG or IgE suggest a food is reactive, it does not necessarily mean it will cause problems if fed. In fact the opposite could be true, with it being perfectly safe to include in the diet. The same applies to 'negative' results, which may actually cause reactions if given. Secondly, hydrolysed collagen, is significantly less allergenic than the beef protein it originates from, and so rarely causes problems even in genuinely beef sensitive dogs. If you'd like to give Joints a try, and it can't be used because there is a reaction, we'll refund the cost of the supplement for you. Do email me direct with your order number if you decide to go ahead on this basis at firstname.lastname@example.org The Joint Support included in this bundle, is highly unlikely to cause any issues, given that it employs botanical extracts.
Hi Claire, yes it can. And it is particularly beneficial for rapidly growing large breeds, as it supplies the nutritional building blocks for the body to form the healthiest possible musculoskeletal system, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, fibrous supporting tissues, cartilage and joint lubricating 'oil' (synovial fluid).
It is hydrolysed bovine collagen. However, this is not necessarily allergenic to a dog sensitive to beef, as the proteins have been reduced to peptides, which in may cases do not provoke an inflammatory response. As always, it's best to trial Joints while keeping the rest of the diet the same, to see what effect it has, for a particular pet. ????
Hi Mary, Joints contains only 100% natural ingredients which are easy to digest. We've never had any reports of this supplement causing any stomach reactions. Hope this helps.
Add the suggested amount to the diet daily, divided between meals.
If a pet has sensitive bowels, it is better to give half the usual quantity or less to begin with, and then - if the stools remain well-formed and health otherwise good - increase to the full amount over a few days.
A powdered blend of Hydrolysed Collagen (bovine origin), organic Kelp, Bromelain from pineapples (corn starch used as a carrier) and Hyaluronic Acid.
Crude protein: 83-85%; Crude fibres: <5%; Crude oils and fats: <2%; Crude ash: <5%
A natural supplement designed to complement a complete, balanced diet.
