Worrying about arthritis is a common concern among pawrents of three legged dogs. Thankfully an endless variety of options exist for preventing and treating degenerative bone disease. Some are, of course better than others and to learn how to spot quality supplements, follow the advice of Dr. Nancy Kay in this Nutrition blog post, “Supplements: How to Spot Bargains Versus Rip-Offs.”
Tripawds UK Spokesdog Vader recently tried two arthritis supplements on the market, and is excited to tell you more:
YuMove, by Lintbells
“Mummy was very happy when she received an e-mail from John Howie of Lintbells, saying that he was offering me a trial sample of YuMove Triple Action Joint Support tablets.
Mummy is always worrying about the risk of early arthritis to me but would rather I have a good quality of life than quantity of life. She knows that I love tearing about the place and she would never stop me doing what I enjoy (only try to slow me down when she can!).
Our YuMove tablets arrived from Lintbells very quickly, a lot of my other three legged friends have tried it and have spoken of great results.
YuMove is said to do three things:
Improve joint comfort with:
Triple Strength Green Lipped Mussel – YuMove provides a concentrated source of unique Omega 3′s proven to soothe stiff joints and improve joint comfort. Green Lipped Mussel contains a unique omega 3 called ETA to soothe stiff joints. The high content of these key active oils is one of the reasons why YuMove works so quickly.
Support joint structure with:
Pure Glucosamine – YuMove is made with veterinary strength and purity Glucosamine HCl to provide more concentrated joint support.
Natural Chondroitin – YuMove is rich in natural chondroitin sulphate from green lipped mussel which plays an important role in slowing the breakdown of cartilage in your dog’s joints.
Manganese – supports stronger tendons and ligaments
Promote mobility with:
Hyaluronic acid – a major part of synovial fluid, the cushioning fluid in the joint which helps lubricate and cushion the joint during movement.
Triple Strength Green Lipped Mussel – a rich source of minerals, amino acids and glycosaminoglycans to support joint, tendon and ligament health aiding flexibility and mobility.
Vitamins C & E – vital for active and working dogs. As your dog exercises, they produce more free radicals which can cause problems over time. Vitamins C & E neutralise these free radicals, helping to maintain joint mobility.
“The Green Lipped Mussels are carefully harvested then ‘cold extracted’ to make sure as much of the beneficial joint ingredients such as omega 3 and chondroitin are protected and available for your dog.
Then we add Glucosamine HCl, which is made from carefully selected sea shells, and natural minerals and vitamins to support your dog’s joint health.
We also don’t believe in using unethical ingredients in our products, so you won’t find any ingredients such as ‘marine chondroitin’ in our products (which is another name for ground up shark fins). Which means that we can supply you a product made with natural, ethically sourced,renewable ingredients. Good for your dog, and better for the planet.”
I take one in my dinner every day and although I need no help promoting my mobility at this age, I really hope in years to come when I begin to feel old that these tablets will help me grow old not so gracefully, I want to be whirling around and I hope that they will be helping me to do just that (reviews on the website from other customers give me real hope!)
Already on YuMove even at such a young age, I feel my fur is shinier and softer and Mummy keeps telling me how glossy I look! So that is an added bonus I think as I am on the same diet as I was before with this added supplement.
I would recommend YuMove Triple Action Joint Support to my friends because it is one tablet a day which Mummy puts in my dinner and I scoff it away merrily, it isn’t difficult for me to take, and even in young tripawds it is a real investment for the future, for the longevity of comfy, supported, mobile joints. I would also recommend it because we love products that are carefully farmed and kind to the environment!
YuMove is available with a selection of other products at www.lintbells.com which I know because Mummy was so pleased she has bought me some more! YuMove is manufactured in the UK, but is available on Amazon for U.S. customers, and the company will ship to other countries where it isn’t available. International customers should email firstname.lastname@example.org for a shipping estimate.
Beaphar – Joint Fit
Mummy enters lots of competitions to win things for me and we seem to have had a good run over the last few months! A surprise came in the post for me and it was a bottle of Beaphar – Joint Fit from Your Dog Magazine‘s giveaway!
I am always a little anxious about trying “medicine” but it was very easy for me to take as it was in a bottle with a pump action on the top, I opened my mouth and Mummy squirted a little bit onto my tongue and I lapped it up straight away!
Beaphar – Joint Fit helps doggies like me in several ways:
- To assist in the maintenance of healthy joints in dogs of all ages
- Suitable for growing, active, working and elderly dogs
- Contains easily metabolized ingredients that are the building blocks of cartilage (glucuronic acid, glucosamine, proline and chondrotine)
- Hyaluronic acid is added to maintain joint lubrication
- Copper and manganese also included for healthy skeletal growth and bone development
I am no scientist but I can definitely say that I enjoyed slurping it down on my dinner or even straight from the bottle, Mummy says that it’s very easy to give to me unlike some tablet forms which are different colours and I leave them at the bottom of my food bowl (I am a clever boy!). The colour of Joint Fit was the same as my dinner so I didn’t even know it was there!
We give Beaphar – Joint Fit a 3 paws up for ease of giving to doggies who might not like tablets and we will certainly be buying more.
