Muscle/joint tablets

    Recommended Posts

    Hi I have a 10 year old lab bitch, she's getting a bit stiff now, I've been told about 'Yumove' and 'GWF Joint aid plus muscle maintenance for working dogs'. 

    Has anyone used either of the above?

    Cheers!

    I am wondering...not suggesting mind, but blue lipped muscle tablets worked wonders on my arthritic ankle and I still use the cream on my hands and wrists with success.

    Is it worth making enquires to see if it would have the same effect on animal tissue. Natural so i would have tought so.  Quite a bit of tuff on the web about it.

    IMHO yumove is an absolute rip off 0 look up the ingredients and buy the human version in Tesco - about 1/100 of the price.

    We are still using Glucosamine on a our old lab (13 this year), do some research on the web. Our vet recommended it and also said if we get the correct dosage it’s massively cheaper buying it from the likes of Holland and Barret.

    Would you say it's a good investment to start dogs on some of this stuff before they start to show issues?

    Our sprocker has Yumove and it's really helped. I'll look into the own brand version, thanks

    No , not the price of a pint and I don't like being ripped off - how much is yumove? £17 when the Tesco equivalent is around a fiver. If you believe that green lipped muscle powder actually works (and there's very little evidence) then you can buy the stuff in kilo bags for around the same price as Tesco tablets. Oily fish most likely has the same , if not more, effect.

    What brand did you find effective if you don't mind me asking?

    In the end I had to get my dog over onto Metacalm which is an anti-inflamatory, gave him a new lease of life for 12-18 months. 👍

    Cannot recollect the original ones but they were shipped from Switzerland. Since that date I have purchased them and the cream from Holland & Barrett with excellent results.

    The result in the initial problem with my ankle; I could not walk along the landing in a morning, was magical because I had relief within 3 to 4 days and was free of pain within two weeks and have never had a return of the problem.    I use the Pernaton cream ..Holland & Barrett ... now for any aches and pains in joints, most recently wirst and hand, but also knee joint.

    Definitely worth trying for ankle arthritis then.

    Thank you

    If you give your dog COD liver oil capsules.Make sure thay are for dogs.The human ones are cheaper but not as effective.

    Put my very nearly 12 year old Lab bitch (non working) onto Synoquin EFA. She's a different dog - much more agile and generally happier. Made a much bigger improvement to her than I though possible. Prior to that she was getting very slow and creaky. Also giving it to my oldest Basset (he's also approaching 12). Seen improvements in him as well but not quite as dramatic as in the Lab. Not cheap but well worth it to see the improvement in them both.
