I got this on the recommendation of our breeder, our breeder keeps all the senior dogs on it to keep them comfortable and it’s just what our senior girl need along with golden paste. Good results all round.

When my old 3 legged dog takes Joint Aid, he's like a different dog, where he was running to go outside. I was recommended Joint Aid by my dog groomer and I've been giving it to my dog ever since. Because it's made of natural ingredients, there's no nasty side effects.
I would definitely recommend this item to any dog owner.

Using this alongside other supplements


  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: Northamptonshire, United Kingdom

Hi, please could you let me know if it is safe to use this alongside the Yumove joint supplement chewable tablets for my dog?
My dog is 8years old, weighs 47kg and suffers with arthritis in back legs.
Many thanks

  • VioVet Staff


We wouldn't advise that you use two joint supplements together, especially as they contain similar ingredients. Although both products have proved very effective in many dogs it is what your dog responds to best. I would suggest using one or the other not both. If you require a stronger strength for a more severe condition, your vet can suggest Yumove Advance that is only exclusive to vets or directly from the manufacturers.

Glucosamine HCL or SO4

Janet Edwards

  • VioVet customer since 2010
  • From: Surrey, United Kingdom

Does Jointaid contain Glucosamine HCL or Glucosamine S04. Its not clear from the packaging or the website.
Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Good Morning,

Thank you for your question, the product contains Glucosamine HCL.

I do hope this helps, if you have any further enquiries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Side effects

Liz Morris

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: Norfolk, United Kingdom

My beagle is nearly 7, he has quite a sensitive stomach. I have been giving him yumove for the last 2 weeks but have had to stop as it is causing him discomfort and it makes his stools very soft. I was wondering if this would be a better product for him

  • VioVet Staff

The answer is that you would have to try it to find out. Generally none of these products upset the digestion, but some dogs as you say are easily upset. You should allow a gap between them both, then make sure that you are very consistent with the normal diet, then see what happens if you try it. All should be well, but it is impossible to guarantee. They are different products with reasonably different ingredients, so there is no real reason to think that this one will cause problems.

Strength of glucosomin


I have flexidog chews with a glucosomin content of 600mg per chew. What is the equivalent amount of glucisomin in one measure of joint aid?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Lynn

The man at GWF has told me that "Glucosamine is included at 2%, so on a 10gm (one measure) inclusion, it will provide 200mgs."

Hope that helps.

Expiry date?

shelf life

What is the shelf life of this. If I bought a large tub which will last over 6 months, will it go out of date?
Many Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Generally our stock of this product has much more than 6 month's expiry date. If you order some, you can always stipulate when ordering that you need a minimum of 6 months before the expiry date. If you order online, click on the line "Add Notes for VioVet Staff" to do this on the checkout page.
