YuMOVE Tablets vs Bites: which are right for your dog?

As we all know, the right joint care supplement has the power to help our animal companions keep leading rich and active lives for life. And this is especially important when you consider the fact that – for our pets – the ability to remain active influences everything from how capable they are of exploring and experiencing the world around them to how they play.

YuMOVE Joint Care is the UK's no.1 vet-recommended joint supplement brand,* with a clinically proven formula that makes a difference in just 6 weeks.*

But you might have noticed that our Joint Care range not only includes different supplements tailored to your dog’s age and lifestyle but that almost all of those supplements are also available in both ‘tablet’ and ‘bite’ formats.

In this article, we’re giving you a rundown of what these options mean for you and your pet and why bites might be a great fit for your furry friend.

YuMOVE Joint Care tablets

Tablets are the default and original format that our YuMOVE Joint Care range comes in. Everything from YuMOVE Joint Care for Young Dogs to YuMOVE Joint Care PLUS Max Strength is available in tablet form.

For the majority of dog owners, tablets are a great option. They’re easy to store, portion out and keep track of, and they deliver the full range of potent YuMOVE active ingredients quickly and effectively – for dogs who love eating them.

YuMOVE Joint Care tablets are designed to be hand-fed to your dog, but they could just as readily be mixed in with your dog’s food.

However, while most dogs will do just fine with YuMOVE Joint Care tablets, a small number of fussy eaters may turn their noses up at them. This is where our bites step in.

YuMOVE Joint Care bites

Now that you know about YuMOVE Joint Care tablets… you may be wondering what the deal is with our Joint Care bites.

Simply put, bites are packed with all the same great active ingredients as our tablets – in the same proportions, and with the exact same benefits. The twist? They’re a different-tasting and more treat-like option, all but irresistible to even the fussiest pups.

What ‘types’ of YuMOVE Joint Care bites are there?

Our bites are available in two broad ‘types’, each clearly marked on the packaging and product pages:

One-a-day – available for YuMOVE Joint Care for Adult Dogs and YuMOVE Joint Care PLUS. These have been formulated so that you only need to feed your dog one bite per day, on average, after the initial month.

Daily Bites – available for YuMOVE Joint Care for Young Dogs, YuMOVE Joint Care for Adult Dogs, YuMOVE Joint Care for Senior Dogs. These have the same serving sizes as their tablet equivalents, but in a treat-like form.

Please note… our NEW YuMOVE Joint Care PLUS Max Strength bites are a bit of an outlier. While they are technically branded ‘YuMOVE Joint Care PLUS Max Strength Daily Bites’, they actually follow the one-a-day format. That means stronger support for your dog in fewer bites!

Is there a quality difference between bites and tablets? If I chose bites, is my dog missing out on any benefits?

Rest assured that there is absolutely no difference in quality or potency between our Joint Care tablets and bites. In fact, they include exactly the same powerful active ingredients in the same potent concentrations!

So, why would bites be a good choice for my pet?

Whether tablets or bites are the perfect fit for your pup will depend on their unique temperament, as well as just what it is you hope to achieve with their YuMOVE (aside from supporting their most active life for life, obviously!)

Here’s a look at a few different scenarios where bites might be the perfect option for your pet.

1.    You’ve got a fussy canine companion who doesn’t want to eat anything other than treats

This is the most common scenario where YuMOVE Joint Care bites could prove a perfect alternative to our tablets. As our bites have been designed to be especially delicious, they’re the ideal option for dogs who might refuse tablets fed by hand – or who might even polish off a whole bowl of food while managing to somehow leave behind the tablets you left carefully tucked between their morsels.

2.    You want to replace some of your dog’s treats with a tasty supplement that will do them good

A few treats in moderation can be a great way of adding a little more happiness and excitement to your dog’s day, and they can also serve a useful role as positive reinforcement during training.

All the same, overfeeding treats can lead to problematic effects, including excess weight gain.

Replacing a few of your dog’s regular treats with YuMOVE Joint Care bites can help to ensure that the delicious snacks they’re enjoying are doing them some real good at the same time.

3.    You want to reduce the amount of the supplement your dog needs to take (in the case of our one-a-day bites)

Some pet owners may find it easier to get their dogs to take their YuMOVE when the serving sizes are smaller. In the case of our ‘one-a-day’ bites – a format available specifically for YuMOVE Joint Care for Dogs (available for small, medium and large dogs) and YuMOVE Joint Care PLUS – serving sizes are significantly reduced, as compared to our Daily Bites and tablets.

4.    You want to add a bit more joy and motivation to your pet’s supplement regimen

Even if your canine companion already takes their YuMOVE Joint Care supplement without fuss, you may still feel like taking some additional steps to make the process more joyful and motivating for them.

Not only might the extra unexpected ‘treat’ get your pup’s tail wagging with delight, but they might also start nudging and reminding you when it’s time for their YuMOVE, instead of the other way around!


Our YuMOVE Joint Care bites offer all the same great benefits as our tablets – and are powered by the exact same active ingredients in the exact same quantities.

From convincing your fussy pup to finally take their YuMOVE, to giving them a healthier ‘treat’ option, or even reducing the amount of the supplement they need to take to see results, our bites can be a game-changer in your pet’s YuMOVE journey.
