  • Question:
    Are these products safe to give in pregnant/lactating bitches?
    Answer:
    For lactating bitches, there are no known contraindications. Whilst there are no known contraindications giving YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 to pregnant bitches, we have not studied this specifically from an ethical perspective. For the sake of 9 weeks, we would recommend stopping the product, and starting again once she has whelped.
  • Question:
    What age can YuMOVE be given from?
    Answer:
    YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 can be started with a diagnoses osteoarthritis at any time after weaning.
  • Question:
    Can YuMOVE be given to dogs with pancreatitis?
    Answer:
    Yes, there are no known contraindications. Fat level in all the chews (2.5g, 5g, 7.5g and 10g) is 12%. This level is lower than a standard food. (Compared with Hills vet essentials which is 15.3% fat)
  • Question:
    Can it be used on those with diabetes?
    Answer:
    No – not advised as chew contains molasses
  • Question:
    Can YuMOVE be given to dogs with urinary problems?
    Answer:
    Yes. For struvite, when magnesium needs to be restricted, you can be reassured that there is 0.01g of magnesium stearate in the tablet, and only 0.0004g of magnesium. For calcium oxalate, there are very low quantities of calcium diphosphate and vitamin C in the tablet – not enough to contribute to these crystals forming. For cysteine, there is low protein in the tablet – approx. 0.2g. If the dog is on a purine restricted diet, we would suggest contacting the food manufacturers to see how much, if any, purine could be tolerated outside of the diet. As shellfish is a known source of purine, if they advise ‘none’, then we would not recommend YuMOVE.
  • Question:
    Are there any medical conditions where YuMOVE ADVANCE would be contraindicated?
    Answer:
    Apart from kidney disease, YuMOVE should be fine to give dogs who have concurrent diseases. We would, however, ask that you speak to a Lintbells representative to double check before starting the product.
  • Question:
    Can YuMOVE be use alongside NSAIDs?
    Answer:
    Yes, this is fine. YuMOVE works on different pathways to NSAIDs, and using the two alongside one another can be very beneficial. Our post marketing surveillance and adverse event recording shows a lack of negative interaction between the two.
  • Question:
    Do I need to induce vomiting if they overconsume YuMOVE ADVANCE?
    Answer:
    An overdose is generally not a concern, it may result in gastrointestinal signs. We advise to treat symptomatically, monitor closely, and withdraw YuMOVE for a week before gradually introducing. Inducing emesis is not required – however, if there are pre-existing concerns about kidneys (i.e elderly dog who has recent symptoms of PUPD) we would suggest checking bloods to ensure kidney readings are under control.
  • Question:
    What age can it be used from?
    Answer:
    YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 can be started at any age after weaning with a diagnoses osteoarthritis which warrants this treatment
  • Question:
    Can it be used on hypothyroidism?
    Answer:
    Yes
  • Question:
    Can it be used on those with pancreatitis?
    Answer:
    Fat level in all the chews (2.5g, 5g and 7.5g) is 12%. This level is lower than a standard food, but owners may wish to use the YA360 tablet if the dog is on a low-fat diet.
    (Compared with Hills vet essentials which is 15.3% fat and Hills i/d canine low-fat food which is 8.52% fat)
  • Question:
    Can it be used on those with diabetes?
    Answer:
    No – not advised as chew contains molasses
  • Question:
    Is YuMOVE safe to give to dogs on a low purine diet (for prevention of urinary stones).
    Answer:
    Shellfish is a known source of purines so suggest caution if these must be avoided, as we have not analysed the green lipped mussel for purines.
  • Question:
    Are there any side effects?
    Answer:
    No known side-effects and no frequent adverse effects reported. However, like any new dietary change, sometimes adding YuMOVE into the dog’s diet may cause some mild gastrointestinal upset and diarrhoea in some rare cases. If this happens, it is usually mild and resolves itself. Sometimes it may be necessary to stop the YuMOVE, let the digestive system settle down and reintroduce again, but this time starting at a very low dose and building up to the label amount gradually. This will allow the digestive system time to adjust to the new dietary elements.
  • Question:
    Can it be used on Dogs with heart problems?
    Answer:
    Use in ill or debilitated dogs or those with specific health conditions have not been specifically studied, therefore we advise to use the product with precaution and monitor the level of effect of the product and the underlying condition closely.
    If owners are concerned about the salt content recommend YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 tablet
  • Question:
    Can it be used on Dogs with kidney problems?
    Answer:
    Dog’s with kidney disease (also known as chronic renal failure), some dogs may be on phosphate restricted diets for this condition. YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 does not contain Calcium Phosphate so this is not a concern.
  • Question:
    Can it be used on Dogs with Liver Problems?
    Answer:
    Yes – No known contraindications
  • Question:
    Can it be used on Dogs on Steroids?
    Answer:
    Yes – No known contraindications
  • Question:
    Can it be used on Dogs with Cushing’s Disease?
    Answer:
    Yes, there is no known contraindication to this. Cushings Disease can make dogs more prone to certain other conditions such as Diabetes Mellitus, pancreatitis and calcium oxalate urolithiasis (calcium-based bladder stones) however there is no evidence to say YuMOVE would cause any deterioration in these conditions if present.
    Other ingredients in YuMOVE such as Omega-3 fatty acids are very active but at low levels compared to fat levels contained in dog’s diets generally. They should not interfere with secondary conditions such as pancreatitis (where high fat should be avoided
    If the dog is on Vetoryl (Trilostane) to treat Cushings, there are no expected interactions between YuMOVE and this medicine.
  • Question:
    Can my client’s dog take YuMOVE if they have cystinuria (cysteine stones in bladder)? I am worried about protein content.
    Answer:
    YuMOVE ONE-A-DAY ADVANCE 360 has an average of 18.2% protein in the 2.5g, 5g and 7.5g chew. This level is below the recommended maximum of 20%.
  • Question:
    My client’s dog gets calcium oxalate stones and must have low calcium in their diet. Can they still use YuMOVE?
    Answer:
    No – YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 contains calcium carbonate, calcium propionate and the antioxidant vitamin C which may increase oxalate formation and excretion in the body
  • Question:
    My client’s dog gets struvite stones and must have low magnesium in his diet. How much magnesium is there in YuMOVE?
    Answer:
    Magnesium is not added to make YuMOVE ADVANCE 360
    Green lipped mussel extract may contain a tiny amount of Magnesium, but the amount is so small it is not even detectable by standard lab tests.
    YuMOVE also contains ingredients that may help with bladder repair and health. The bladder wall structure depends heavily on structures called glycosaminoglycan’s (GAGs). YuMOVE contains GAGs found in the bladder (including hyaluronic acid) and also contains building blocks for a range of bladder GAGs. YuMOVE additionally contains omega 3s (found in the green lipped mussel extract) and this can support the body’s own natural anti-inflammatory processes if bladder inflammation is present.
  • Question:
    Can it be used on epileptic dogs?
    Answer:
    No known contraindication
  • Question:
    Why do you recommend to double dose?
    Answer:
    Using the loading dose will speed up the incorporation of Omega 3 Fatty Acids into the phospholipid membranes so there should be a shorter time to see the difference.
    Continue with the loading dose until the owner and vet are both happy that there is a difference, then the dose can be reduced to the maintenance dose.
    Therefore, they may not need to use the loading dose for the full 4 – 6 weeks
  • Question:
    Can it be used alongside other medication?
    Answer:
    No known contraindication
  • Question:
    How many calories per chew?
    Answer:
    The 2.5g chew contains 9kcal, the 5g chew contains 18kcal and the 7g chew contains 27kcal.
    These levels are less than 2% of the dogs daily calorific requirement.
  • Question:
    Are YuMOVE Gluten free?
    Answer:
    Yes
  • Question:
    How does Vitamin E reduce oxidative stress? What is actually damaged by oxidative stress? Is it protecting the omegas?
    Answer:
    Oxidative stress results from an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants. There are plenty of papers, mostly human ones, showing the role of oxidative stress in the pathology of OA.
    Free radicals cause damage to DNA, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids.
    Vitamin E helps because it is an anti-oxidant, it can donate an electron to a free radical to neutralize it.
    The anti-oxidant (Rosemary extract) is there to protect the omega-3 fatty acids in the tablet against oxidation.
    The vitamin E is there to reduce oxidative stress in the body but would help protect the omega-3 fatty acids if all the Rosemary was used up (unlikely)
  • Question:
    Where does the Hyaluronic Acid come from?
    Answer:
    The hyaluronic acid we use is produced in a factory under controlled conditions by a natural fermentation process of plant derived glucose. It is therefore from a plant source.
  • Question:
    What does the hyaluronic acid in the product do?
    Answer:
    Hyaluronic acid is a vital part of the joint fluid inside the joint and helps with mobility. Given orally it can support the structure and composition of the synovial fluid which lubricates and cushions the joint.
    YuMOVE contains a certain type of HA which is proven to reach the joints in just 2 hours (Balogh et al 08)
  • Question:
    What are Glycosaminoglycan’s (GAGs)?
    Answer:
    In simple terms, GAGs are chains of molecules that string together and attach to proteins in the joint to make up the substance of cartilage. GAGs attract water into the cartilage and give it its flexibility and cushioning nature to withstand the forces in the joint and protect the ends of the bones. GAGs also make up an important part of the joint fluid which lubricates the joint. Glucosamine is a building block molecule for the GAG chains.
  • Question:
    Why doesn’t the product contain shark cartilage?
    Answer:
    This is not a sustainable or ethical source, also there is more evidence for efficacy of GLM for structure and Omega 3 EFA’s.
  • Question:
    Why is there no MSM in there?
    Answer:
    MSM is Methylsulfonylmethane and is marketed as an inflammatory support and anti-oxidant for the joint. It is a dietary source of sulphur.
    Concerning dogs, there is far more evidence showing benefits of Omega 3 and GLM in OA for supporting the inflammatory response. Regarding anti-oxidant effects, the Vitamin C & Vitamin E are added to YuMOVE to provide this function.
    For MSM it is in fact unknown what the effective dose in dogs is as there are no canine trials showing clinical improvement in OA.
    In horses, there is more convincing evidence for benefits. This may be because the diet of dogs is naturally sufficient in sulphur content as this is plentiful in meat protein products. As regards horses, providing extra sulphur to their herbivorous diet may be of benefit to provide additional sulphur for anti-inflammation and anti-oxidant benefits.
    In short, in dogs the key is that ActivEase Green Lipped Mussel is a more scientifically established ingredient than MSM for aiding the body’s own inflammatory response, so we use this instead of MSM.
    There is a far higher weight of evidence for the other ingredients we do include in YuMOVE and this is now supported by the RVC clinical trial that shows YuMOVE has a clinical benefit.
  • Question:
    What are the key differences between this and other joint supplements?
    Answer:
    1. Quality- Ingredient sourcing and ingredient evidence base e.g. GLM is from the best source in New Zealand with the highest EFA levels and the HA used is the type shown in studies to be rapidly and efficiently absorbed.
    2. YuMOVE is a comprehensive joint supplement, not only does it support the structure, but it also naturally supporting the inflammatory response, provides Omega-3’s and supports general mobility.
    3. It is clinically proven to support mobility in just 6 weeks
    4. Affordable
    5. Easy to use, it is palatable and just once chew per day after the loading dose.
  • Question:
    What is different about ActivEase Green Lipped Mussel?
    Answer:
    The GLM in YuMOVE is very special. It is the highest quality GLM that can be found in a joint supplement (pet or human). It is specially sourced from one particular mussel farming area in New Zealand and the extract is produced from the mussels via a patented vacuum extraction process. If you look on a product label and simply see ‘Green Lipped Mussel’, this doesn’t tell you much. You need to ask the manufacturer for more detail. Many GLM products contain GLM powder that has been ‘de-fatted’. This means it does not contain the important essential fatty acids ETA, EPA and DHA that make it effective for joint problems. Our GLM contains the highest level of EFAs possible and over 4 times more than the standard freeze-dried preparation.
  • Question:
    Why do you have glucosamine hydrochloride and not sulphate?
    Answer:
    We have glucosamine hydrochloride because the hydrochloride molecule is smaller than the sulphate molecule, which means that weight per weight you get 20% more active glucosamine with the hydrochloride form. Also, the sulphate form is less stable and requires salt (either potassium chloride or sodium chloride) to stabilize it. We want an ingredient with as minimal impurities as possible, so use the hydrochloride form.
  • Question:
    Why are you using a vegetarian/plant source of glucosamine?
    Answer:
    There is high global demand for glucosamine and the majority of it come from crushing seafood shells and extracting glucosamine via a water-based method. The majority of this happens in China. The seafood shells may have significant levels of heavy metals, such as mercury, and with the extraction method these may contaminate the end glucosamine product. Heavy metals have obvious health implications and ingestion should be avoided. Therefore, we use an FDA-approved vegetarian source to avoid contamination with heavy metals. Our glucosamine is safe and 98.8% pure.
  • Question:
    My clients dog seems vastly improved in just 2 weeks on YuMOVE ADVANCE 360, should they exercise him/her normally?
    Answer:
    This depends on the severity and nature of their dog’s condition. The GLM in YuMOVE aids the dog’s own natural inflammatory response quickly in the first few weeks and the dog may start to feel better and be willing to do more. However, it takes a little longer for the other ingredients, and the dog’s body, to help with the structure of the joint. Therefore, it is important to make any changes to their exercise routine gradually and if increasing exercise amounts to do this slowly and sensibly.
  • Question:
    What are the advantages to using YuMOVE instead of an NSAID or of reducing the dosage of an NSAID?
    Answer:
    There are no known significant side effects to using YuMOVE, but there are with NSAIDs. NSAIDs may irritate the lining of the gut and in some cases cause ulceration. Other concerns involve NSAID use in older pets as their kidneys and liver may not be working as well as younger animals and this fact may mean that the organs are not able to tolerate NSAIDs as well and potentially they may be damaged.
