For dogs that love life, joint degeneration can have a huge impact on their physical and mental well-being. While not all joint problems are preventable, involving joint aid supplements is a sensible investment for the future, as these contain the key ingredients needed for joint tissue repair and renewal. In fact, many people now include joint supplements as a staple part of their dog’s diet, whether or not there is an existing problem.

Extending VioVet’s service of care to pets everywhere, we have developed ‘Joint Force®,’ our own branded joint care supplement. ‘Joint Force’ offers high quality daily nutrition that is cost-effective and for those who are unable to be in for parcels, the pack of 120 is uniquely packaged to fit through your letterbox.

Additional Feeding Guidelines

If your dog is over 7 years old or showing signs of stiffness, use twice the daily amount for 4-6 weeks and then reduce to the above quantities. If your dog requires more than one tablet, we recommend giving half of them in the morning, and the other half in the evening.

Consult your vet before feeding to a pregnant or lactating bitch.

Why use Joint Force®?

Joints are specialised structures which allow a range of movements and endure a lot of stress from everyday use. When joints become damaged over time, the loss of mobility and pain can greatly reduce a dog's quality of life and activity levels.

Supplementation is a popular method of maintaining joint health, intended to extend a dog's period of mobility and comfort. It is believed that as many as 1 in 5 dogs could benefit from a dietary supplement, so we have developed Joint Force with both your dog's needs and your pocket in mind.

Joint Force has been formulated to provide a cost effective and unique combination of 9 high quality nutrients, believed to be beneficial in the following areas when fed daily.

Glucosamine HCl is an important building block and major constituent of all joint components, cartilage in particular.

High quality Chondroitin is found naturally in the Green Lipped Mussel and is key to maintaining cartilage elasticity and promoting the formation of new joint structures.

Manganese is known to activate many enzymes involved in tissue repair and maintenance. For instance, collagen has great tensile strength and is essential for strong connective tissues, including ligaments which hold the bones in the joint together.

Chondroitin provides cartilage with its vital shock-absorbing quality to protect the joints from impacts. Its number of functions help to slow the deterioration of cartilage.

MSM is a rich source of sulphur, with many roles beneficial to joint health. It is believed to work in combination with Glucosamine to inhibit joint degeneration and support recovering tissues.

Hyaluronic Acid is a vital component of synovial fluid, the lubricant between joint surfaces. HA gives the fluid its cushioning properties and allows friction-free movement.

Antioxidants Vitamins C and E work together to minimise the harmful effects of free radicals generated during exercise.

Turmeric has been used by many cultures for hundreds of years and is thought to boast both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help with joint health.

Green Lipped Mussel is a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids, widely used as supplements for their anti-inflammatory properties. Omega-3 fatty acids also act by inhibiting the conversion of Omega-6 fatty acids into harmful agents that drive inflammatory reactions.

Boswellia serrata is traditionally used in herbal remedies for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Each of the above areas contributes towards an overall level of activity a dog can achieve. The longer joint structure and integrity is maintained, the longer our dogs will be able to remain supple and comfortable.

Each dog will respond as an individual to any supplementation but Joint Force ingredients have been carefully selected, based on both scientific reasoning and traditional use, to give them the best chance of feeling the benefits.

What is Letterbox Friendly Packaging?

Joint Force® 120 tablets are specially packed into a slim, flat container, rather than a round tub, so that your order can fit through any standard letterbox, saving you a trip to the post office or trying to remember which neighbour might be in to take it for you! With Joint Force, you know your dog's tablets will be waiting safely inside for you when you return home.

Bought this for both my dogs as mickey is 11 and Polly is 7, mickey is getting on a bit and Polly is an ex breeding bitch from a puppy farm with luxating pattellas so I thought it would be a good idea to get them a supplement, have only been using them for a couple of weeks but have seen an improvement already.

Tried these instead of YouMove, which our doodle liked very much. She won't touch these, even disguised in other food. So, in our case, a complete waste of money.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Joint ForceĀ® for Dogs, including answers from our team.

24 August 2020 at 7:54pm

Are they suitable for a puppy


Hi. Are these suitable for an active 5 month old cocker spaniel to promote healthy joint growth.

  • VioVet Staff

Yes these tablets can be used in dogs once they start eating solid food. They are therefore safe for use in your 5 month old cocker spaniel and will help prevent future joint disease.

7 August 2020 at 12:12pm

Is this product suitable for a dog with frequent gastro-intestinal problems?

Charlotte's Mum

My 6 year old Cavalier has recently developed significant pain in one shoulder and the vet thinks she may have underlying arthritis. Charlotte often gets gastro-intestinal problems, sometimes with inflammation and bleeding. She also has continuous problems with blocked anal glands. I am worried about giving supplements that may make these problems worse.

  • VioVet Staff

This depends on the cause of the gastro-intestinal problems. Joint Force is a very safe supplement and none of the ingredients have these kind of issues as a listed side effect. It is ideal for a dog potentially suffering from arthritis. However if your dog's problems are related to a food intolerance/allergy or a disorder like Inflammatory Bowel Disease then I cannot guarantee she won't react to the flavouring within Joint Force.

You may be best to try Synoquin EFA capsules, these are unflavoured and so less likely to set off an intolerance/allergy related gastro-intestinal problem.

Are Joint Force tablets palatable and chewable?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes these tablets are liver flavoured. They are not chewable, this version is more 'crunchy'. If you are looking for chews then I would try Joint Force Soft Chews for Dogs which are bacon flavoured.

Change of tablets

Joint force tablets

I normally give my labrador yumove for her stiff joints, she eats these no problem, I am trying her on joint force, but have to put them in her food as she won't take them from hand, I have noticed your tablets have changed , would I be corr8that you have change shape of your tablets from the larger Sharpe edge tablets I have in at present

  • VioVet Staff

Yes our Joint Force tablets have recently changed shaped, they are now circular as opposed to oval. The ingredients are exactly the same and this is purely a cosmetic change.

4 July 2020 at 5:25pm



I have order the taster pack but there is no indication of dosage. My dog weighs about 15kg.

  • VioVet Staff

If your dog is under 15kg then you should feed 1 tablet daily, if 15-30kg then you should feed 2 tablets daily.

3 July 2020 at 9:48pm


Alison Kendall

Can these be used with yumove

  • VioVet Staff

Joint Force can be safely used alongside YuMove, but they are very similar supplements and you should not need to give both. In giving both you will be feeding an unnecessary high dose of the ingredients they both share.

27 June 2020 at 7:27pm

Side effects


Can these tablets have side effects like itching

  • VioVet Staff

Joint Force is a supplement, categorised similarly to food. It is a very safe product and there are no listed side effects, however if your pet is allergic to one of the ingredients then this can appear as skin problems (itching) or intestinal upset (diarrhoea) as with any food. I would stop giving Joint Force and contact your vet if this starts shortly after starting the product.

Where are the ingredients sourced from?


Hi, where are all the ingredients sourced from, i.e. which country? Thanks.

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Dawn,

Thanks so much for your interest in Joint Force. All of the raw materials for this product are from UK suppliers. We source as many ingredients as we can from the UK for our whole Own Brand Range, and occassionally have to go slightly further afield but still within the EU when they are unavailable to us locally.

We always want to ensure the best quality, and our manufacturing partner has this as top priority :-) I hope this is helpful!

Best wishes,
