Movoflex: a new joint care supplement for dogs

Virbac have announced the release of their new soft chew joint health supplement for dogs – Movoflex Soft Chews

Unlike many other joint supplements, Virbac‘s Movoflex soft chews do not require a loading period.

Where other supplements often require multiple tablets to be given each day over a period of up to six weeks to start seeing an effect, just one Movoflex chew per day can show a perceived increase in mobility in just seven days, regardless of the activity levels or age of the dog (EC Veterinary Science, 7, 13-21, 2022).

The five key ingredients of eggshell membrane, hyaluronic acid, astaxanthin, Boswellia serrata and krill meal have been selected for both their individual and synergistic benefits.

They are formulated to work together to effectively support joint health and help increase quality of life.

This unique combination allows the consumer to not only start seeing benefits faster than other joint supplements, but provides a cost effective, highly-palatable treat which is easy to give, a fact that 94 percent of pet owners agree with (EC Veterinary Science, 7, 13-21, 2022).

Eggshell membrane, an innovative ingredient in Movoflex, contains a number of different naturally occurring elements involved in joint structure and function, including collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and more than 200 different proteins.

Eggshell membrane has also been shown to have a proven effect on mobility in dogs (and humans).

Canine osteoarthritis is the most common disease in dogs with 20 percent of adult dogs and up to 80 percent of dogs over eiight years old affected, so we are proud to be able to add innovative Movoflex soft chews to our wide range of products that support joint health,” said Dan Johnson, product manager at Virbac.

Presented in eco-friendly packaging in three different sizes for optimal dosing, Movoflex soft chews are available in Small (under15kg), Medium (15 to 35kg) and Large Dog (35kg) packs, each containing 30 chews and are available to order from your usual veterinary wholesaler.
