- 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!

Enter your question below
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.
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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.'
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 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.
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 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 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 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, the collagen is bovine in origin.
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 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 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 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.
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 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 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.
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, 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%
