Our dogs are part of the family, so we look after them in the same way as we look after our babies, our teenagers, our parents and ourselves. And, just like us, those doggy health needs change as they go through life and they may need extra support to recover from exercise, or to see them through the ageing process – which is a much faster process for dogs than it is for us.
Because you care about your dog’s wellbeing and happiness, you may choose to feed them supplements to increase the levels of helpful ingredients in their diet and give them a bit of a boost. This is why we created YuMOVE Dog in the first place.
We offer a complete range of joint supplements so that you can find the right one for your dog, whatever stage of life they’re at. However, so you can ensure you choose the correct ones for your pup, and see the biggest improvement in their joint health, we’ve created this quick guide to choosing the right joint supplement.
YuMOVE Young and Active
Perfect for: young dogs and give-it-all-you’ve-got dogs!
YuMOVE Young and Active can be given as soon as your dog is on solid food, and it is specially formulated with extra antioxidants to help the joints of growing, athletic and super-bouncy young dogs. Like all our YuMOVE supplements, it contains our ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel, which is cold-extracted in a process unique to Lintbells, packing in even more of the essential Omega 3 oils that help to keep those joints as active as your pup.
YuMOVE Dog and YuMOVE Chewies
Perfect for: promoting continued joint health in adult dogs
YuMOVE Dog is our original formula, proven to support your dog’s mobility in just 6 weeks*. We use ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel, pure Glucosamine for dogs, Manganese and Vitamins C and E which together help to cushion the joints and promote mobility. Giving this joint supplement daily – either in the standard tasty tablet format or as YuMOVE Chewies– helps to aid stiff joints and promote mobility as your dog gets older.
YuMOVE Working Dog
Perfect for: Dogs with daily working habits
Working dogs tend to put miles on the clock faster than most domestic dogs, which is why we’ve formulated this dedicated version of our joint supplements just for them. YuMOVE Working Dog is a triple-action joint supplement that you give daily to aid stiffening joints and promote joint mobility. We’ve also added Beta Glucans for added digestive support, helping to keep your dog happily on the move day after day.
YuMOVE PLUS for Dogs
Perfect for: Senior dogs with signs of stiffness
If you’ve noticed that your best friend is a bit slower on walkies, or takes a while to stand up after resting, it could be that your dog’s joints are starting to stiffen with age. If you haven’t given joint supplements before, now is a good time to start, and YuMOVE PLUS for Dogs is a great supplement to give. Because this is for dogs who already feel stiff, we’ve added 20% more of our amazing ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel, which really soothes that stiffness. We also use ingredients like fast-acting N-Acetyl D-glucosamine, which provides the major building blocks of cartilage, for extra support in the tough connective tissue that protects the joint.
YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 for Dogs
Perfect for: Dogs under veterinary supervision
This range has been specially formulated for dogs under veterinary supervision and is often recommended by vets as part of a wider care plan. If you are worried about your dog’s movement or stiffness, it’s a good idea to take them to your vet for a check-up – whatever age they are – so that you can find out exactly what’s going on, and put a plan together. Ask your vet about YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 for Dogs – it contains 100% natural ingredients and is easy and tasty to feed to your dog. It’s the highest strength formulation for dogs that need the highest level of support for their stiff joints.
