What is UC-II®?
UC-II® is a clinically proven ingredient formed of undenatured type II collagen derived from chicken sternum cartilage. Type II collagen is present in joint cartilage and is important for mechanical strength, gliding ability, and cushioning. To learn more, visit our blog.

Signs of Dog Joint Pain
As dog owners, we constantly want our dogs to be happy, confident, and active. They can experience joint pain for various reasons, including ageing, genetics, injuries, or underlying health conditions like dog arthritis. It's important to be attentive to your dog's behaviour and look for signs indicating joint pain. Common signs include:
Change in Activity Level: A decrease in overall activity, such as becoming disinterested in playtime or walks, may indicate joint pain. Often a change in activity level may be partnered with an increase in sleep. Another indicator can be the amount of time they can engage in exercise. As dogs age, even short bursts of activity can cause discomfort. Finally, a speed reduction could indicate dog mobility issues. Dogs with arthritis can find it difficult to move quickly as their joints are inflamed and stiff.
- Reluctance or Difficulty Moving: Dogs in pain may hesitate to move, especially if they know that movement causes discomfort. You may notice when your dog is inactive for some time, they are slow to get up and move. This is often a result of joint issues and stiffness. If your dog has trouble jumping onto furniture, climbing stairs, or navigating obstacles they previously handled easily, it could be due to joint pain.
- Limping or Favouring a Leg: If your dog is limping, holding up a leg, or favouring one side while walking, it could be a sign of joint discomfort or pain. Sometimes dogs may exhibit an altered or abnormal gait, such as a "bunny hopping" motion in the hind legs.
- Behavioural Changes: Joint pain can make dogs irritable or more sensitive. If your dog seems unusually grumpy or reacts negatively when touched in certain areas, it could be a response to pain. In severe cases, dogs might vocalise their feeling through whining, whimpering, or even yelping when moving or being touched.
