"My 11 year old lab was getting real stuff on his hind legs and walking so slowly. So I started looking online to see what else was put there because even advanced Cosequin didn't work. This is my second bottle and I didn't tell my husband to see if we would notice a difference. He says I went to feed him and he was doing this circle dance and has more energy. He's moving better now. Been researching that Green Lipped Mussel apparently does wonders!!! Will continue giving this to him. They must be tasty because he eats them like treats. I highly recommend this since my boy feels much better!"

"Broke my heart when I found out my girl had hip dysplasia at 5 months old. I had tried other things so around a year old I started her on vet smart which I had seen on Facebook. My baby is over 3 and runs like the wind. Thank you vet smart for such a wonderful product."

"Bessie Mae is 13 years old and about 6 months ago evidently had a collision with one of the other dogs and it knocked her down. In turn she was only able to drag her back legs. And as everyone knows, that results in major sores and abrasions on those back limbs. After the vet's visit with xrays showing arthritis in her back and legs, we chose to do laser treatments, senior feed, Gabapentin and pain meds. At the same time I ordered our 1st shipment of Vet Smart Supplements. Also ordered boots for those back legs and that got us thru the difficult days. But, she got back up on her legs in about 2 weeks and now she runs everywhere she goes. Doing really well. At this time we have cut back on everything but Vet Smart--that is what I give the most credit too. The laser really helped and would do that again if needed. She does not seem to have pain and she is enjoying life. Thank you."

"Sadie, our 98# , 12 yr old shepherd mix had been having hip problems for awhile and could hardly get up. Within 30 days of being on this product she was getting up easily and playing with our other shepherds well. That was a year ago and Sadie still moves freely and has better quality of life."

Barbara W.

"My 10 year goofy Doberman is back to running around stealing sticks and chasing squirrels! His back legs were given out on him and he was falling continuously and required help getting down the steps. After using your product for approximately 2 months we noticed remarkable improvement."

Veterinary Strength

Veterinarians typically sell products that are stronger and more effective than what you might find in a retail pet store. The products are formulated to higher standards, and they contain more of the powerful “active ingredients” that are helpful in delivering the benefits to your pets. VetSmart Formulas products are specifically developed for veterinarians, and we are proud to call them “Veterinarian Strength.”

Our products are not available in retail stores. They are made in the U.S.A., they contain no artificial colors, flavors or fillers, and are wheat and gluten-free.

VetSmart Formulas proprietary combination of natural ingredients makes THE difference.

Green-Lipped Mussel:

Green-Lipped Mussels are found in the pure and clean waters of New Zealand, and have a distinct bright green edge, or “lip”.

Medical experts know that Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are critical when it comes to reducing inflammation. Research indicates that Green-Lipped Mussel contains more than 30 critical fatty acids that reduce inflammation from arthritis, hip dysplasia and joint issues. This minimizes your dog’s joint pain and discomfort.

Studies indicate that Green-Lipped Mussel is:

  • 350 times more potent than salmon oil
  • 350 times more potent than evening primrose oil
  • 400 times more potent than flaxseed oil

Green-Lipped Mussel is a powerful all-natural nutrient that also allows pet owners to reduce or eliminate the use of prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s) like Carprofen that can be harmful over long periods of time and may cause severe gastrointestinal irritation. Another benefit to Green-Lipped Mussel is it includes Polysulfated Glycosaminoglycans (PSGAG’s), which are a key building block for your dog’s healthy cartilage and joint fluid.

Sea Cucumber:

Sea Cucumbers are marine animals (echinoderm) related to the starfish and sea urchins. They are an excellent source of chondroitin sulfate and have long been used to support joint mobility and joint tissue maintenance.

We include Sea Cucumber as a purified powder in each tablet. Sea Cucumbers also have a potent anti-inflammatory effect, which helps alleviate pain in dogs with arthritis. According to a study published in 2008 in the American College of Rheumatology, patients with rheumatoid arthritis usually have high concentrations of certain lipids know as prostaglandins, and Sea Cucumber helps regulate the balance of prostaglandins. Additional benefits include healthier skin, an improved circulatory system, stronger bones and teeth, and an overall healthier immune system.


Methylsulfonylmethane is also known as MSM. This naturally occurring element contains a sulfur compound in a form your dog’s body can readily use to help build joints and cartilage. MSM is essential for many bodily functions, and yet MSM is found in such small amounts in foods, so adding MSM to your dog’s diet via supplements is critical. MSM helps maintain cell membrane permeability and regeneration to promote flexibility and elasticity of body tissue. It also is beneficial in building nerve tissue, hair, skin and nails. Research shows that MSM is safe and effective in promoting joint comfort as well as supporting a normal range of motion and responses in animals.  


Polygonum is a flowering plant in the buckwheat family. It has been studied since the early 1700’s and has been used for years in the treatment of arthritis in traditional medicine.

Polygonum works by increasing the excretion of uric acid and improving the circulatory flow of the capillaries and tissues and providing anti-inflammatory effects. It is used in humans and pets specifically for arthritis, inflammatory and degeneration afflictions of the joints. According to studies by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, Polygonum is a powerful and natural anti-inflammatory with analgesic or pain relief effects.

Vitamins C and E

Vitamin C is routinely prescribed by Veterinarians. It plays an important role in maintaining the health of collagen, and it appears to be especially helpful for slowing and possibly reversing degenerative joint disease, hip dysplasia, and spinal disorders. Dogs of all ages can benefit from Vitamin C, and as dogs get older, they become less proficient in producing their own supply of Vitamin C, so supplementation is recommended.

According to Veterinarians, there are several advantages to giving Vitamin E to dogs. These include improving the texture of the dog's coat and skin, promoting a healthy heart, and supporting the dog's immune system. Vitamin E also has anti-inflammatory benefits, so giving a dog Vitamin E can be a good way to reduce the painful symptoms of arthritis.

About VetSmart Formulas

Pet Wellness Direct was founded in 2015 out of frustration when pet owner Russ Kamalski was searching for a solution to help his dog Sienna with her hip and joint pain and the related inflammation.

As Sienna grew older, she started limping with pain and eventually resorted to walking on three legs. It was just too excruciating to watch. Russ avoided prescription pain pills and steroids since Sienna’s vet indicated that over time the medications would harm her kidneys and liver. Sienna’s suffering was not fair to any pet, especially one that was very much part of the family.

After researching the market for natural joint supplements, and trying most of them with disappointing results, the situation became more dire. The joint supplements on the market were not high-quality, the results were non-existent, and the lack of product information and education added to the confusion and frustration.

This journey led to a team of incredible experts that included veterinarians, biomolecular scientists, nutritionists, and manufacturers of medical-grade supplements. They all shared the passion to help pets with hip and joint pain, and helped us develop our first product under the VetSmart Formulas brand name. Advanced Hip + Joint Complex includes a highly effective combination of Green-Lipped Mussel, Sea Cucumber and natural ingredients that delivered amazing results to Sienna, and now, to more than 100,000 dogs across the country.

My dog is overweight and I am trying to reduce his fat intake. How much fat is in the VetSmart Advanced Hip + Joint Complex?

There is not enough fat in our product to worry about. There is a trace amount in the chicken flavoring, but it is insignificant in any dog’s diet. Most dogs are overweight due to lack of exercise and eating dry food that is flour based. Also, many grain-free dry foods contain excessive carbohydrates that cause weight gain. Another challenge is canned foods contain excessive fats and prebiotic starches that cause weight gain, especially in smaller dogs. The best way to keep the weight off is to keep your dog active and out of joint pain, and read the food labels.

My dog has arthritis and is really struggling with her hips and joints and is not mobile. Can I increase the dose and give her more than what is on the label?

Yes, you can. According to our experts, use your best judgement based on your dog’s condition. For more severe cases you can double the dose indicated on the label for the first 3-4 weeks, and then cut back to what is on the label for ongoing maintenance. This gives your dog’s body time to produce new cartilage and repair the joints. If your dog experiences any issues such as diarrhea, then cut back on the dose.

My dog has a sensitive stomach. Will this product work for him?

Yes, if you dog has a sensitive stomach try easing into the full-strength dose indicated on the label over a 2-week period. It’s also helpful to use our Probiotic Nutrient Enhancer to balance your dog’s gut.

How are green lipped mussels harvested and processed?

The green lipped mussels we use in our Advanced Hip + Joint Complex are raised on licensed sea farms in New Zealand. The green lipped mussel industry is one of the most important industries in New Zealand, and it is highly regulated and a leader in ecological safety. Prior to the 1960’s, green lipped mussels were grown wild in the sea, but the harvesting process scraped the seabeds and destroyed the sea floor. Since that time, virtually all green lipped mussels are required to be farm raised using the “longline technique” that has been used for centuries by Japanese farmers to safely raise oysters. The New Zealand green lipped mussel industry is now considered one of the most ecologically responsible and sustainable industries in the world. Regarding the method of processing, our green lipped mussels are processed by “cold opening” instead of heat processing so the important nutrients in the mussels are preserved.
