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 to treat.

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.

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.

Q & A

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

Sensitive

Leigh Stoten

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Hertfordshire, United Kingdom

Is it delicate on the tummy?

  • Website Content Developer

Hi Leigh,

Some dogs with very sensitive stomachs have experienced digestive upset, so I would recommend introducing any new supplement slowly, and build up to the amount needed.

If you still have some Yumove left, you can slowly transition to Joint Force e.g. if you are giving 2 Yumove, give 1.5 Yumove and 1/2 a Joint Force tablet for a few days, then build up to 2 Joint Force tablets.

I hope this helps!

Kiind regards,

Danielle

These tablets v cosequin

Jane

How do these compare with the noticeably more expensive cosequin I have been giving my 10 year old labrador?

  • Website Content Developer

Hi Jane,

Thank you for your question.

The main difference between Cosequin and Joint Force tablets is the number of active ingredients. They both contain Glucosamine, Chondroitin (found in Green Lipped Mussel in Joint Force) and Manganese, however these are in smaller amounts per tablet in Joint Force as they are also balanced with MSM, Boswellia Serrata, Turmeric, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E, which all help to contribute to the overall health and comfort of joints. To make up this difference in Glucosamine, Chondroitin & Manganese, you may need to feed more Joint Force than Cosequin. For example, a 30kg Labrador will need 2 - 3 Joint Force tablets vs 1.5 Cosequin DS Tablets.

I hope this helps!

Overdose

Julie

What would happen if my dog overdosed on these

  • Product Developer

Hi Julie,

Thank you for your question,

As Joint Force™ only contains natural active ingredients, your dog would not be able to 'overdose' in the same way as with medication, however if they consume a much larger amount than is recommended, they could experience digestive upset.

I hope this helps!

Omegas

Vikki

I often see marine based fish oil recommended for arthritic dogs due to the omega content. Should I /can I use this in addition to Joint Force or does this product already contain sufficient amounts?

  • Product Developer

Hi Vikki,

Thank you for your question,

While Joint Force™ contains a comprehensive blend of ingredients which are formulated to give all the support needed in the one product, you can certainly use fish/omega oils in conjunction as they are not found in Joint Force™, and using both will contribute in different ways to support the joints, which is key when it comes to looking after overall joint health.

I hope this helps!

Joint force

Peter

Please can you tell me if there’s s any pork or yeast or maize, cereals or rice or potato or any other ingredients that are not listed in this product? What is the fat content and protein and fibre any other nutritional information? Do joint force contain any enzymes or probiotics or prebiotic?

  • Product Developer

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your question,

All ingredients included in Joint Force tablets are declared on our website at the packaging, they are free from pork (the liver flavour is chicken liver), yeast, maize, cereals, rice or potato. The analytical constituents of the tablets are Protein 22%, Fat 3.1%, Ash 26.3%, Fibre 9%. We don't include probiotics/prebiotics or enzymes in Joint Force, however we do have a ReguTum™ range available specifically designed for digestive health, both forlong-term daily use and for short-term support during times of tummy upset.

I hope this helps!

Can joint force be given along side prescription medication

kay kirk

My 12 year old German Shepard cross is on Prednicare 5mg at a rate of 1 tablet every 3rd day for inflammatory bowel disease, he is fed Purina DRM, he is also on Previcox 227mg at a rate of 1 tablet daily, and is also on Yumove Advance as he does have arthritis in some of his joints, i wanted to know if i gave him joint force either along side the yumove advance or instead of do you think it will be safe along side his prescription meds and do you think it might upset his stomach ? Look forward to your opinion, thanks, Kay.

  • Brand Manager

Hi Kay,

It is safe to give Joint Force alongside the other medications and supplements your dog is on. I would recommend transitioning extra slowly to any new supplement to allow your dog's sensitive gut to adjust to the changes. The main differences between the tablets are the chicken liver flavouring, turmeric, Boswellia serrata, and MSM. Yumove Advance contains slightly higher levels of Green Lipped Mussel and a few other ingredients that Joint Force also has, although the benefits from the ingredients in Joint Force that Yumove Advance does not have, will work in other ways to support your dog's joints.

As the ingredients are so similar, I would either stay on Yumove Advance or swap to Joint Force, rather than spending more to use together. The feeding guideline can be adjusted to suit your dog, and if he needs more support, you can safely give an extra tablet if his digestion allows it (after you slowly build up).

We have taster packs for both the Joint Force Tablets and the Joint Force Soft Chews for dogs - I can see you've already ordered a pot of the tablets but I'll pop a couple in the post to you so you don't have to open the tub before you know he's okay on them!

I'll send you the chews too, as these are double strength so you only need 1 chew per 30kg, and the 'non-active' ingredients are different due to the chew formulation. Do let me know how he gets on! If we can help any further please get in touch :)

Loading

nicola

Hi My dog is already taking yumove i am thinking of changing him too to joint force would i still have to load him or can i just continue on his regular dose

  • Customer Service Advisor

Hi Nicola,

You can continue with your normal daily amount, as many of the ingredients are the same :slightly_smiling_face:.

I'd recommend swapping him over gradually if you still have some Yumove left, just to minimise chances of stomach upset if he is sensitive to changes.

Kind regards,

Gluten

alison bate

My 9 year old sproker spaniel suffers with sore joints, I would like to give her a supplement but she also has a gluten intolerance. Does joint force contain gluten.

  • Brand Manager

Hi Alison,

Neither of our formulations for dogs contain gluten :)

We have the Joint Force Tablets as you found, and we also have Joint Force Soft Chews which are great for fussier dogs. The Soft Chews contain some corn starch and rice bran for the texture, but these are not a source of gluten. The full ingredients for both can be found in the description boxes if you'd like to see the lists.

As with any dietary change, I'd recommend introducing him to Joint Force over a week or so and build up to the number of tablets/chews her requires just in case he has a sensitive stomach to changes.

Kind regards,

Danielle C

These tablets v yumove advance

tracy hopkins

Hello there.. my 13-year-old Cavalier King Charles has been a yumove advance now for about five years for her joints etc.. could you please tell me the benefits of these tablets against the yumove advance I'll be very interested to find out more.. does it have all the same ingredients that yumove has are there some not included many thanks look forward to your answer Tracy

  • Veterinary Advisor

YuMove Advanced and Joint Force are very similar products and both contain quality ingredients. Joint Force contains some extra ingredients that Synoquin doesn't- one of which is Turmeric, a natural anti-inflammatory. On the whole I don't think your dog will notice much difference between the two but if you feel that you'd like the addition of the anti-inflammatory give Joint Force a go.

Can it cause itching?

Ellen Higgins

My doberman William has been on joint force for about 7 weeks now to help with a joint injury. However he has in the past suffered with very bad itchy skin due to demodex mange. He had it as a pup. With careful management he hasn't had any problems at all until about 4 or 5 weeks ago, so I'm wondering whether it could be joint force causing it. I think it has omega 6 in it which I believe can cause inflammation. He hasn't had any problems until now so what would your advice be ? He is 3 year's old.

  • Product Developer

Hi Ellen,

Thank you for your question,

I'm sorry to hear that William has been experiencing discomfort with his skin recently, you are correct that an excess of omega 6 can sometimes cause inflammation, although Joint Force does not contain Omega 6, but rather Omega 3 from Green Lipped Mussel which should actually help with inflammation. We would first recommend having William checked by your veterinary surgeon to rule out any conditions that have caused his itchy skin to occur again, and your vet may be able to discuss whether a skin supplement could help in his case if he is not already taking one. You will find that Omega 6 is commonly included in skin supplements, however this is because optimal skin health is achieved by a diet containing a balance of both omega 3 & 6, which skin supplements aim to provide. If your vet feels that William will benefit from a skin supplement, one of our most popular and positively reviewed products specially formulated for dogs with itchy skin is Yumega Itchy Dog. This is added to their food and you can usually expect to see results in around 4-6 weeks.

I hope this helps.
