In Detail

AIDS STIFF JOINTS
YuMOVE Cat contains a high strength extract of ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) to soothe stiff joints. ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) contains three Omega 3s, EPA and DHA (found in many fish oils) and ETA (only found in ActivEase® GLM) to aid the body’s own natural anti-inflammatory process.

ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel
Only Lintbells products include our unique ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel. It’s one of the key ingredients in the YuMOVE range, and is sourced from specially selected crystal clear bays in New Zealand. Because of the specific growing conditions and unique cold vacuum extraction of Green Lipped Mussel, YuMOVE Cat provides significantly higher levels of Omega 3 EFAs – 4 x stronger than standard versions.

SUPPORTS JOINT STRUCTURE
YuMOVE Cat uses Glucosamine HCl and Chondroitin Sulphate to provide structural support to the joint. These components provide the building blocks of cartilage synthesis enabling maintenance of joint structure.

Glucosamine HCl
YuMOVE Cat contains the highest levels and purity of Glucosamine HCl.

Chondroitin Sulphate
Most products add a single source of Chondroitin Sulphate from either a bovine or marine source. YuMOVE Cat contains both Chondroitin-4 and Chondroitin-6 Sulphate sourced from ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel.

Manganese
Manganese is a necessary co-factor for GAG and collagen synthesis.

PROMOTES MOBILITY
Maintaining joint mobility in cats is important for their overall health. Cats with joint stiffness can be less mobile which may lead to obesity. YuMOVE Cat has been formulated to help maintain joint mobility.

Hyaluronic Acid
A principle component of the synovial fluid, Hyaluronic Acid is normally produced from Glycosaminoglycan precursors internally. However, a study by Balogh et al has demonstrated that oral administration of Hyaluronic Acid can be shown to accumulate in key areas in the body including the joints and vertebrae within 2 hours of consumption.

Vitamin E
Exercise can produce free radicals. Vitamin E is included to provide antioxidant activity against free radicals.

PHOSPHATE & VITAMIN C FREE
YuMOVE Cat is phosphate-free, perfect for cats on a low phosphate diet. It is also Vitamin C free to avoid the risks of the formation of oxalate crystals.

Daily Recommendations

For an average 4-5kg cat, we suggest you recommend 1 capsule per day.  It’s easy to feed – just split the capsule and sprinkle over the cat’s food.

For older or stiff cats, use 2 capsules per day for the first 4-6 weeks.

YuMOVE Cat is available in packs of 60 sprinkle capsules.

Question:
Are these products safe to give in lactating queens?

Answer:

For lactating queens, there are no known contraindications.

Question:
Are these products safe to give in pregnant queens?

Answer:

Whilst there are no known contraindications giving YuMOVE Cat/YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 for Cats to pregnant queens, 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:
Can YuMOVE be given to cats with hypothyroidism?

Answer:

Yes, as long as they are on medication, as opposed to Y/D food. Although no Iodine is added to YuMOVE Cat or YuMOVE ADVANCE 360 for Cats, Green Lipped Mussel naturally contains some Iodine.

Question:
Can YuMOVE be given to cats with kidney disease?

Answer:

To ensure that older, stiffer cats can still benefit from YuMOVE, despite a strong likelihood of kidney disease, YuMOVE Cat/ADVANCE 360 Cat comes in a gelatin capsule, and is therefore phosphate-free. As such, this is safe to give to cats with kidney disease.

Question:
Can YuMOVE be given to cats with urinary problems?

Answer:

YuMOVE Cat/ADVANCE 360 for Cats is vitamin C free, to avoid the risks of formation of oxalate crystals. If the cat is on a urinary diet, we would recommend that the owner seeks veterinary advice.

Question:
Are there any medical conditions where YuMOVE Cat would be contraindicated?

Answer:

Apart from hypothyroid cats on Y/D food, YuMOVE Cat is safe to use in most cats. We would always ask pet owners make their vet aware if they are starting their cat on a joint supplement.
