Does Your Younger Dog Need Joint Support Too?

Do they need joint support too?


Many people first hear about YuMOVE when they have an older dog who’s starting to slow down and show signs of joint stiffness.

But you might be surprised to hear that your younger dog might also benefit from joint support.

It’s true that younger dogs naturally have more of a spring in their step than older dogs. That’s because when your pooch is young, they’re likely to have healthy joints with strong cartilage and lubricating joint fluid.

This means they’re often more able to jump up to catch a ball, climb into the back of a car or get up and down stairs.

But while your younger dog may naturally have well-cushioned joints, they’re also likely to have more energy, be more active and run around more. All of which can lead to occasional joint stiffness.

That’s why it’s important to consider giving your younger dog’s joints some extra support so your pup can stay active and keep enjoying life to the max.

Your one-year-old’s all grown up

Another factor to consider is that your dog might be older than you think. We’re all used to hearing that a dog year equals seven human years, but in fact, dogs age at different rates depending on their size and breed.

This means that although you might think your dog is still a sprightly, springy pup, their joints might need support much sooner than you’d imagine.

How much exercise does your puppy need?

When you get a new puppy, it can be tempting to take that adorable ball of fluff out as often as possible. However, too much exercise can be damaging to your puppy’s growing joints. The Kennel Club recommends walking your pup for just five minutes per month of age, up to twice a day. Speak to your vet for more personalised advice.
