The short answer is no, never heard of it. But the ingredients look useful. Green lipped mussel extract has long been known to help, as has Omega 3 fish oil. Cortaflex or Cosequin are both well thought of. But it seems some dogs get more benefit from one supplement and other dogs from a different one. So it pays to give different products a try. Several people I know have gone down the route of human supplements such as the Holland and Barrett Glucosamine and Chondroitin. But of course that needs a certain amount of guesswork for the correct dose. If you choose to do that I'd air on the caution.

Regards, John

As a thought for you. He is already receiving cartrophen injections and capreive tablets so I would certainly not give anything else without clearing it with your vet first. I could well be that another supplement could react with what he is already having.

I would stick with just the cartrophen injection for a while and leave the caprieve off because if you're giving both, you won't know which one is working, it may be that the cartrophen alone will do the trick and you won't NEED to use the caprieve, unless of course, your vet has suggested he needs both now.

Hi, thanks everyone, we have already stopped the caprieve as I think it wasn't agreeing with him at all, so he is just on the cartrophen injections, are others lab is on nothing at the minute but does suffer with arthritis too, he had both his cruciates done so we call him bionic dog hehe, another one I came across was viovets own supplement joint force, it is supposed to be comparable to yumove?

I got one of the magnetic collars (not expecting any impovements)
Interestingly I've been wearing a magnetic bracelet for around 5 years and swear I'm better with it than without.

Hi john, I've read about the magnetic collars with mixed reviews, is it the bioflow collars? Has anyone tried these?

No, it's only a relatively cheap bracelet. Titanium so it's quite light. But I used to get bad backs regularly but since wearing it I've not really had many spells and they have never lasted anything like as long.
