Reduces Pain and
VetSmart Formulas powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties protect dogs from stiffness and pain and help to keep their joints healthy, mobile, and strong.
Restores The "Building Blocks"
of Joint Cartilage
Cartilage is the rubbery connective tissue that holds your bones together. Inflammation and constant wear and tear can erode your dog’s cartilage, causing the bones to rub painfully together.
Replenishes Lubricating Fluid
within The Joints
Just like a car or bike chain, your dog’s joints need “grease” to move smoothly and without friction. By replacing the lubricating fluid within the joints, you help your dog remain healthy and active.
Binds and Deactivates Dangerous
Every day, your dog is exposed to free radicals that can cause oxidative damage to its cells, tissues, and organs. Neutralizing these free radicals boosts your dog’s immune system and overall wellbeing.
Support Your Pet's Natural
The active ingredients help your dog’s joints, tissues, and organs heal faster so they move out of pain and back into the healthy and active lifestyle they love.
NOW is the best time to protect your pet against arthritis and other joint issues.
Arthritis is usually seen as an “old dog’s disease.” But younger dogs get it too! According to the Arthritis Foundation, one out of every five dogs over the age of one suffers from painful or crippling joint issues.
And as dogs get older, the risks keep going up.
Studies show that 60% of dogs 7 years or older suffer from arthritis – and that percentage continues to skyrocket as your dog enters his senior years.
That’s why the best time to start protecting your pets from possible joint issues is NOW – before they start developing any symptoms.Order Now
Which dogs are most at risk?
One big reason veterinarians are seeing more dogs with early stage arthritis is because they are overweight. Obesity in dogs is a huge risk factor for joint issues. In fact, according to the VCA Animal Hospitals, 50% of dogs are obese! Fat cells contribute to inflammation, which causes stiffness and pain. On top of that, your pet’s joints simply weren’t built to handle the extra weight. This results in unnecessary wear and tear and leads to long-term damage.
ACTIVE AND INACTIVE DOGS
Dogs that are extremely active can also be at risk of developing arthritis. All of that running and jumping and turning on a dime adds a lot of extra stress to the joints! On the flip side, dogs that spend most of their time snoozing on the couch and never get much exercise tend to experience more stiffness and mobility problems than dogs who get a good amount of physical activity on a regular basis.
Everybody loves a big floofball, which is why dogs such as labradors, golden retrievers, German and Australian shepherds, Bernese Mountain Dogs, and all of the “doodle” breeds are so popular these days.
But the larger the breed, the greater the risk of joint problems. Large dogs are more prone to hips and elbow dysplasia and other issues which can impact their mobility and wellbeing. Because of their size, they have to carry a lot of weight around, which causes wear and tear, and stress and inflammation on their joints.

What makes VetSmart Formulas Early Stage Hip + Joint Complex the best preventative supplement for your dog?
There are a lot of Glucosamine/MSM products on the market for pets these days. Sadly, many of these products are made with low-quality ingredients. Or they contain such small amounts of the active ingredients they have little to no impact on your pet!
VetSmart Formulas Early Stage Hip + Joint Complex is a proprietary blend of veterinarian-strength ingredients that meet the highest standard that veterinarians demand. It is formulated to be safe for use over long periods of time and contains only the highest-quality ingredients in the right amounts that have been tested in US laboratories to ensure maximum effectiveness.
Why preventative action is essential
Dogs tend to hide their discomfort. It’s evolutionary – showing pain is a sign of weakness that could cause their pack to abandon them or indicate to predators on the prowl that they’re an easy target.
That’s why dogs won’t let you know when they’re experiencing pain until it’s so severe they can no longer hide it.
Only YOU can help your dog – so it’s up to you to prevent problems before they happen. Experts agree that a great way to do that is to give your dog a high-quality natural supplement that helps to support your dog’s joint health and mobility and protect your beloved pet from the inevitable effects of aging.
Because no matter how good your dog’s diet is, chances are he’s not getting all of the nutrients he needs to maintain optimum joint health and combat the wear and tear of everyday life.
Made in the USA to the highest quality standards
VetSmart Formulas is made in the USA in FDA audited facilities which adhere to cGMP and are audited by Underwriter Labs.
Every ingredient is carefully inspected and tested before processing, ensuring a consistently safe, high-quality product for your beloved dog’s health.

Our product is generally safe for dogs with diabetes. However, if your dog has any health issues, we always recommend that you obtain your veterinarian’s approval prior to use.
Beef is not an active ingredient in the Advanced Hip + Joint Complex, but a small amount is used as a natural flavoring. Our organic beef flavouring is made from USDA-inspected beef. It is uniquely processed, leaving very little of the reactive proteins available. By NOT having a full protein mass it can be used in "hypo-allergenic" diets and is generally considered safe for dogs with allergies.
If you know that your dog has a specific beef allergy, or you suspect this may be the case, we suggest that you contact your veterinarian and discuss the beef flavoring that we use. And when in doubt, with your veterinarian’s approval we also suggest using a small or partial dose to observe possible allergic symptoms, and then decide to use or discontinue use. We offer a 30-day money back guarantee.
You may also want to use our Advanced Hip + Joint Complex formula instead as it comes in chicken flavor and has no beef-related ingredients at all.
Yes, if your 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 VetSmart Probiotic Nutrient Enhancer to balance your dog’s gut.
