Do you ever think about your dog’s overall hip and joint health? If your dogs are as young as Ivi or Rylie, probably not – joints are something most of us only consider when our dogs are older and needing a bit more help. It was actually quite shocking to us that during our last vet visit, our veterinarian recommended that Ivi start taking a glucosamine supplement – not just because Alaskan malamutes are prone to hip dysplasia, but it has been proven that taking hip and joint supplements starting at age 2 can help improve dogs’ lives as they age. Wanting only the best for our dogs, we started our search for a natural hip and joint supplement. Luckily, we recently introduced to the perfect supplement for our girls – Nutri-Vet® Hip and Joint Regular Strength Chewables!
So, what makes this hip and joint supplement better than other options? First off, Nutri-Vet Hip and Joint Regular Strength Chewables liver flavored chewable provide 500 mg of glucosamine, 100 mg of chondroitin and vitamin C, and 10 mg MSM to help maintain healthy canine joint function and connective tissue. For those who don’t know glucosamine is the key building block for making cartilage in most animals, including humans and dogs! Glucosamine has been shown in various peer-reviewed veterinary journals to help maintain joint health and support mobility and activity in dogs of all ages, not just older dogs. The other vitamin and minerals in the supplement helps protect existing cartilage, keep it from breaking down, and supporting overall bone and cartilage help. In other words, this supplement is designed to help even young dogs like mine stay healthy, while also preventing or reducing issues in aging dogs. Just remember, it can take 4-6 weeks to see results.
Of course, no matter how great a supplement sounds, it is only good if your dogs take it, right? I will be honest; I am not one of those dog parents who will put my hand down my dogs’ throat to provide medicine or a supplement. In this house, we are all about bribery. It is very rare that we can actually give the girls any pill unless it is hiding in a pill pocket, cheese, or some other delightful treat. I was honestly ready to do this with this treat, but since they advertised this supplement as being very palatable to dogs, I thought I would try giving it to the girls straight, first.
Not only did they eat the supplement, they were begging for more after they finished this liver flavored, chewable pill. I was actually quite surprised and relieved that they loved it, especially since this supplement is healthy, cost effective, and will help improve their lives for years to come. Since they look forward to their Nutri-Vet Hip and Joint Regular Strength Chewable, I see no reason not to stay with this awesome supplement for my girls!

I have two large dogs. One is already ba k g problems with his joints and hips. Finding a great supplement that works (and not RX that can be harmful long term) is a goal of mine
Linda Szymoniak says
I have three rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds. All three had questionable starts on life, including likely not getting very healthy food. My girl, Kyoko, was nearly starved before being dumped at the high-kill shelter I adopted her from. She’s at a healthy weight now (actually a little chubby) and so far we haven’t seen any negative results from her near-starvation. However, her joints are definitely going to be an issue. She’s been with me for six years and was a minimum of 2 years old when I adopted her. I’d love to try this product for her – and for my two boys, too.

I have been looking for something for my sisters dog who is getting a bit older and could do well with a joint supplement
Margot C says
I have a senior rescue dog (Monty) who is 15 years old – or more, we don’t know – he’s doing really well. I have to make absolutely sure taht he gets glucosamine into himself every single day though or he feels creaky – you can tell. Sometimes, it’s a challenge. these treats would be so great for him.
My dog could really use these! She jumps a lot and I think these would benefit her joints.
My dog’s going to be 6 this year but I don’t think he needs it yet.
I am glad to hear that this is a chewable pill that is easy to give to dogs. Having had 2 dogs who suffered from hip dysplasia when they were seniors, I think this would be good to help prevent having to go through that.
Michelle L says
What beautiful dogs you have. Thank you for this post.
April Monty says
How great is thi? Especially if you have a very large dog since they’re prone to health issues
Sandy Weinstein says
i get Nutrivet emails. i think they have wonderful products. i like that it is a chewable pill and helps with joints and aches. i need this for my sr gal and i have another gal who will be a considered a sr soon.
April Monty says
I shared this with a lot of my friends that are pet parents,their dogs are still at the point where they can prevent health issues with hips,etc.
You’re right – most people probably don’t think about hip & joint problems when they have young dogs. Even though they should. Many dogs have problems as puppies/young adults with hips & joints, as they’re growing so fast. I’m impressed that you’re impressed. More importantly that your pups actually like the supplement. That’s probably the best thing of all, honestly. Will definitely check these out. Gavan is almost 8 years old – eek! I hate even saying those words. But, I’ve been noticing he seems a bit stiffer, although not dramatically, so I know that I need to find something else to start giving him. Thanks for all this information on this product!
Sounds like these would be a great way to introduce the supplement for a sensitive stomach pup. I looked up the ingredients on the site – there’s no hidden carbs/sugars in the product – so I would be comfortable trying this with Gracie (diabetic now).
Susan Bewley says
One of the reasons I’ve been following in love with this company. They have a full line of first aid stuff too that I’m planning on buying for our first aid kit. Just amazing!
rochelle haynes says
Sounds great for your dog they need this
monique s says
I have been looking for something for my sisters dog who is getting a bit older and could do well with a joint supplement. I think it so important to take care of joint issues
Darla Peduzzi says
My best friend’s dog has hip problems and she’s a finicky dog too. I am definitely going to tell her about these. Thanks for sharing!
Sherry Keef says
I have an older dog who suffers from age related joint pain.
A joint supplement would help with his activities of daily living.
Thank you for sharing with us.
Michelle S says
Our good friends have a black lab, Sophie, who has had joint issues. She’s an older dog that sometimes struggles getting up and down. This might be a good idea for her.
Lisa M says
Glucosamine is something we need to be more consistent with our dog. I’m glad these are cost effective because I would like to use them.
Linda Manns Linneman says
This sounds like a great product. My sons youngest lab has hip and joint problems. I will let them know about this. It may just help
Kim Pincombe-Cole says
Hip problems are common in both of our dogs breeds. Joint health supplements are something we started a few years back for them!
Lena jeske says
I never thought of giving my dogs these supplements so early. Great info!
Dogs can get joint pain just like humans. I would love to see if these chewables help my dog’s hip pain.
Susan Smith says
My doesn’t take a hip and joint supplement. I’ll have to look it it. I like that it’s a chewable pill because giving my dog pills can be a challenge.
I have pulled up the site to save to show to my husband. We have had two beloved husky mixes in our home. One experienced much joint pain towards the end of his life and it was one of the hardest things to watch. I wish I had known more about how to help him sooner. Our younger pup is now getting up there in age as well and I am very interested to find out more about this! Thanks for sharing and the pups are beautiful!
Susan Bewley says
I am so happy I could help. Nothing is worse than seeing our fur babies suffer. I know when our vet told us prevention could help our girls suffering later, I took it!
Cynthia C says
I had a dog a long time ago who had hip problems as he aged. I wish there had been something like this back then to help him.
Michelle L says
I love the pictures above. You have really beautiful dogs Susan.
Kimberly Matlack says
Even though my dog is a little one (12 lbs) I believe in being pro-active with keeping them in the best health. They become like family and we want them to be around as long as possible too.
Deborah D says
My sister has a puppy. I will tell her about this medicine which may help her dog in later years. Your dog reminds me of one I had about 24 years ago.
Mya Murphy says
It’s sad when animals start getting old and in pain.. I’m proud of this company who actually cares about it.
Lisa Coomer Queen says
Nutri Vet sounds like an awesome company. I will have to look into it. Thanks!
It is comforting to have products that can help prevent some of the problems as our pets age. And their prices are certainly reasonable.
Judy Cox says
We just lost our oldest dog a few months and she had this kind of problems. We gave her this type of pills and it helped her. She was getting so old and finally it was time for her to go!!
Sue E says
It is so weird that I read this and am commenting, because I was just talking to my daughter about her dogs and this very issue!! One of her dogs is taking a slower time going up and down her porch when going in and out of the house to go to the bathroom. At first she thought it was the cold weather, but unfortunately, Kita does this all the time now. I told her about Milk Bones Daily Vitamins with Hip and Joint help for dogs. That she doesn’t have to wait to see the Vet to help Kita! The vitamins are good for her furry friend anyway. Plus, like your dog, Kita thought it was a treat. She loves them & we have noticed a pleasant improvement in her mobility!! I’m going to inform her about Nutri-Vet and their site so she could learn and make her own decisions where her baby is concerned. Thanks for the information! I’ll be pinning this so other furry friends may get helped!
Susan Bewley says
So glad I could help! It is one of those things no one really talks about. Just know that pups already suffering from hip and joint problems it can take 6 weeks for them to start showing improvement (at least that is what I read from Nutri-Vet and animal studies).
We haven’t started using hip and joint supplements yet, but are most likely going to have to soon. Both of our pups are getting older, so I figure we’ll probably have to start them on them.
Kara Marks says
I don’t have a dog anymore, but I’d like to get one again. It’s good to know about this–thanks!
Thanks for sharing. It’s good to know what’s out there.
Margaret Smith says
Haven’t heard of Nutrivet before but it really sounds beneficial. Going to give it a try with our dog.
Melanie Borhi says
This is valuable information for canines , this could really improve an animals lifestyle and wellness great post.
Maryann D. says
My sister has elderly dogs and Nutri-Vet Hip & Joint Chewables would be perfect for them. I am glad they now have products like this for our pets.
Cathy Truman says
Our boy Bailey was born with some leg problems
he is doing okay now but as he gets older he will
have problems. These Nutri-Vet Hip & Joint Chewables will
be the answer for him. Thanks for letting everyone know
I like how they offer a 100% money back guarantee. That way if your dog doesn’t like it, there’s nothing lost! Sounds like these are pretty tasty though!
Jac Godbout says
Oh my goodness look at that beautiful happy doggie smile.
I am currently squirting some hip\joint supplement into my dog’s food, but he doesn’t like it. He will eat it….eventually. He is definitely not excited about it. I Want to try this.
Amber Ludwig says
Seriously so important!! Especially with bigger dogs and super active dogs!! Their joints and hips are their livelihood!! What a great supplement to improve the health and wellness of our furry friends!
I’m always looking for something to help my pets with their joints. It sounds, from what I read that this would be something I should try.. By the way you have a beautiful dog.
Terri Quick says
I have my senior boy on Jack Hannah. It really seems to help him.
whitney lindeman says
I didn’t know this was something that we should start while our pups are young – thanks for the tips! Gotta keep our fur babies healthy and happy! 🙂
Bryan Vice says
For some people including me our Dogs are family. thank you for sharing because i dont want my Molliie in pain thank you so much
april moore says
My fur baby, Roxi needs some of these. They really look so awesome
April Monty says
This is great for pets to help keep them strong .
Richard Hicks says
We have an older dog that has joint problems. I will have to look into this and see if it will help our dog. Getting old is awful for animals and people!
Sarah L says
Looks like a good product for dogs that need some help. No dogs in my house right now.
Louise Murray says
I have German Shepherds~definitely going to try this supplement~❤
ellen beck says
Odin is getting up there in age, he is 14 now, and slowing down a bit. So far, knock on wood no stiffness, but like anyone else he will eventually have his aches and pains. I started giving him supplements last year, I have to take a look at this brand.
Minta Boggs says
Wow! I never thought of things like this with dogs!! I know people have joint problems!
Kayla Norris says
Thank you for the information. I really need to research more into this. One of our labs is almost ten and if she plays too much the next day she whines and doesn’t want to walk around. She is still so energetic I don’t want her hips to interfere with it.
My dog could really use this, he is getting older and isn’t as nimble as he use to be.
Katt Lewis says
My girls are getting up there in age, I will have to start thinking of things like this for both of them.
gloria patterson says
Today companies are thinking ahead about our fur babies. I know how much hip problems hurt so I would not want my dog to have to go through it.
Margaret S Porter says
Our sheltie is having some trouble getting up and down. Might give this a try.
Holly Thomas says
My dog is 10 and would probably benefit from this, all I have to do to get him to take a pill is call it a treat and through it up in the air.
Anita Jude says
My dogs are going on 2yrs old now and I never thought to buy supplement for them at that age , Great information and a wonderful article to let people know that their pets need this to keep them healthy
crystal frey says
I USED TO USE THIS AS WELL . I LOVED IT AND WILL HAVE TO GET SOME MORE OF IT. ITS HARD WHEN WE LIVE ON A ONE INCOME FAMILY.
Jerry Marquardt says
I like the Jack Hannah varieties. I thank you for the excellent review and appreciate your sharing it with us.
Lana simanovicki says
This is a amazing product
Jennifer Rose says
My son and his gf just adopted a Turnbull who has lived his whole life in a shelter and has had. Both knees operated on. He is on glucosamine supplements. I learned quite a but in this article and I don’t think I would of come across these actual ones if not for you. Thank you!!🐶🐶🐶🐶
