Active Ingredients

Active Ingredient Why it is used
Chondroitin Chondroitin is essential for the resilience of cartilage by maintaining the resistance to compression. It also aids the repair and formation of connective tissue.
Collagen Collagen possesses great tensile strength and provides the body’s tissues with their firmness and strength. Referred to as the “glue that holds the body together”, it is essential for connecting and supporting the bones, tendons, muscles and cartilage.
Curcumin Curcumin is the active ingredient of the spice, turmeric. It is a natural and powerful antioxidant and supports the normal anti-inflammatory action of the body.
Glucosamine Glucosamine gives cartilage its strength, structure and shock absorbing qualities. It is involved in the formation of tendons, skin, bone and ligaments and is found in high concentrations in connective tissue and cartilage.
Glutamine (Glucose Fermentation) Glutamine is a protein derived amino acid that supports the natural immune response and is essential for gut wall integrity.
Hemp Oil DerivedOmega 3 Fatty Acids Hemp oil is probably the best source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids found in the plant world. This unique combination enables the dog to produce other essential Omega 3 fats called EPA & DHA, both of which are normally only found in fish oils, but are crucial for the health, fertility, condition and performance of the animal.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) MSM is a source of natural organic sulphur. Sulphur is found in high concentrations in joints and helps to form cross links with other molecules that maintain the strength and integrity of connective tissues.
Vitamin C Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen in the body that forms the matrix of connective tissues in mammals. It directly affects the level of tissue growth, development or repair after injury so is crucial for healing and the body’s immune system.


For all of the above active ingredients to be utilised, they have to be absorbed from the dogs’ digestive tract. Oatinol supplies natural antioxidants, polar lipids, beta glucans and galactolipid emulsifiers, required to maintain gut cell integrity, maintain the lining of the gut, support the immune system and aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

Active Ingredient Why it is used
Oatinol - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that help establish the perfect medium for enzyme activity in the gut to absorb feed components.
Oatinol - Natural
Tocotrienol Antioxidants
Tocotrienol antioxidants are found naturally in oat bran. This tocotrienol form of vitamin E is 40 to 60 times more readily recycled in membrane systems and supports tissue integrity.
Oatinol - Oat Derived
Beta Glucans
Beta glucans provide nourishment for beneficial fibre degrading microbes and helps maintain a high level of natural immunity.
Oatinol - Polar Lipids Polar lipids are found in high concentrations in cell membranes and are essential for tissue integrity and the controlled passage of materials into and out of cells.

Daily Feeding Recommendation

1. Simply mix with the dogs’ normal feed.
2. Joint Aid for Dogs can be fed to all dogs, regardless of age or level of exercise.

Using this alongside other supplements

Laura

  • 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

  • Customer Service Manager

Hello.

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

  • Meds Supervisor

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

  • Non-Executive Director

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

lynn

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?

  • Marketing Analyst

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

  • Non-Executive Director

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.
