Life changer for Bean

Our senior Boston terrier, Bean was exhibiting hind quarter lameness a couple years ago. We ruled out tick borne illness and neurological issues and the diagnosis wound up being arthritis. About 6 months ago, Bean was diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease which can cause muscle wasting. This, along with some other supplements have helped her be able to maintain her muscle mass and continue daily walks and play time.

Game Changer For Our Senior Dog!

Encore Mobility has made a huge difference for our 9 year old schnauzer mix, Luther. Before he started taking it we would notice he would be super stiff and even limp around for a minute or two first thing in the morning waiting for his legs to get going. We had tried joint supplements in the past and nothing came close to the results we get with Encore Mobility. We noticed a difference pretty quickly and a year and a half later Luther is feeling great taking it every day. We just moved to a house where the yard is a hill. I truly don’t think Luther would be able to run up and down it as easily as he does without Encore Mobility. He gets around great and is able to enjoy his long walks again. Highly recommend!

What’s Not to Love…

Encore Mobility is an excellent product and I would encourage folks with senior dogs to give it a try. I had my 15 year old Aussie/Border Collie on it and it was very helpful to make her feel more comfortable. She has passed over the Bridge recently. We are currently using it for Mikey, my 13+ year old Australian Shepherd. Mikey has “old man” aches and pains in his back end and Encore Mobility helped him feel more comfortable in less than two weeks. He can go up and down the stairs easily now whereas before using Encore there were days that we had to help him. Highly recommended 🙂

Since starting EM we have monitored her closely. We have certainly not seen any deterioration since the change, and both of us reported seemingly increased energy and enthusiasm in her exercise from week 1 – which we were not sure if it could work that quickly! This has continued and her activity level is significantly higher (bearing in mind that we have always tried to avoid her racing around fields, chasing deer etc. for the last few years as we would always see consequences from this). Currently we are see her doing all the things we have previously tried to stop, and as she exercises with Mac, our 16 month old Labrador who, as you might imagine, is a complete lunatic when he’s out and about, Madge is currently doing everything he does without any adverse reactions. Significant stiffness, especially from rest, would have been likely prior to EM, but is currently not apparent.

Copper shows signs of improvement after taking 2 doses of Encore mobility, for the past months he ate his food lying down, I have tried countess treatments, Copper stood up to eat his food to day and shows signs of increased mobility, thank for giving him some freedom, he is a Papillon and was very active. Thanks again

This product literally saved my dog's life

He was having accidents in the house EVERY DAY. He would urinate or defecate on the living room rug, in the kitchen, or sometimes in his bed in his crate and then just lay in it even though the door to his crate was open and he could walk out if he wanted to...It wasn’t fair to him...I had decided that I would give this supplement a try but if there was no improvement I was going to euthanize him. I started Toby on Encore Mobility in February. Within 2 weeks everything completely changed for the better!!!!

A note from integrative veterinarian Dr. Julie Buzby


Do you worry that your senior dog is slowing down from the aches and pains of age, exercise, or arthritis?

As an integrative veterinarian with 25 years of experience caring for senior dogs, I get it.

That’s why I’ve worked with veterinary colleagues around the world to formulate a 100% natural supplement to turn back the clock for our grey-muzzled friends.

The result? A very special supplement that soothes stiff joints, improves comfort, and renews vigor and vitality throughout a senior dog’s “encore years.” That’s why we call it Encore Mobility.

Encore Mobility is a unique combination of two all-natural “super supplements”—Green Lipped Mussel and New Zealand Deer Velvet. It has helped thousands of dogs around the world rediscover their inner puppy.

I recommend it for all my senior patients. And I believe it will help your dear dog enjoy brighter, happier “encore years” too.

Discover the benefits of New Zealand Deer Velvet and Green Lipped Mussel in Encore Mobility

Boosts your dog’s energy & stamina

The unique combination of bioactive New Zealand deer velvet and green lipped mussel works naturally and synergistically to promote joint health, comfort, and flexibility for renewed vim, vigor, and vitality.

Soothes stiff joints for ease of motion

Senior dogs can be a little stiff and sore! Glucosamine, chondroitin, and glycosaminoglycan (found in green lipped mussel and New Zealand deer velvet) repair joint cartilage and increase hyaluronic acid (HA) production. The result? Your dog can move more freely because once stiff joints are now lubricated joints.

Improves your dog’s comfort

Green lipped mussel (rich in omega-3 fatty acids) and New Zealand deer velvet (rich in peptides) are both natural anti-inflammatories. This means your dog’s comfort level increases as inflammation decreases. A more comfortable dog is a happier dog.

Dogs love the taste

The chewable tablets are irresistible to dogs, which makes it easy for you to give—even if your dog has an “iffy” appetite.

Simple ingredients found in nature

Sourced from pristine New Zealand, green lipped muscle and deer velvet are rich in vitamins and minerals—and have helped thousands of dogs “bloom” again.

Formulated by veterinarians

The professional veterinary formula is recommended by veterinarians worldwide, 100% safe and natural, and scientifically backed by research on canine arthritis.

New Zealand deer velvet and green lipped mussel

Frequently asked questions

What kind of conditions is Encore Mobility helpful for?

If your dog suffers from any of the conditions below, Encore Mobility™ can help:

  • Joint pain and inflammation (e.g., hip dysplasia)
  • Connective tissue health and healing (tendons, ligaments). For example, to assist the body in healing ACL tears.
  • Stimulation of the immune system
  • Cognitive support
  • Adrenal support (stress support)
  • Senescence support
  • Red blood cell production
  • Wound healing
  • Fracture repair
  • Cardiovascular health
How long after starting Encore Mobility until I see results?

Generally, dogs show positive changes in as short as one to two weeks, sometimes even within a few days.

However, because it can take longer in some dogs to see improvement, please continue to give the supplement for a full 30 days before judging efficacy.

If my dog takes more than one pill daily, is it best to give them all at once or spread out dosing throughout the day?

It really makes no difference, so we recommend that you do what works best for your schedule.

However, giving your dog Encore Mobility on an empty stomach IS important. We recommend the tablet(s) be given 20-30 minutes before a meal for optimal absorption.

Life saving

This supplement is amazing. I have a 12 1/2 year old German Shepard who is my world. He’s been declining across the years as his arthritis has advanced. Over the summer he started to rapidly decline to the point where he was no longer getting up by himself at all. It was to the point where we started having some hard conversations about his quality of life and what to do since he couldn’t be left alone and being concerned he’d hurt himself trying to get up or just when walking. Cognitively he was still there and my happy boy so I started looking around for supplements to help the arthritis. He was already taking Gaunfacine and had been regularly for 2 years. He started taking this supplement and within 2 weeks he was doing SO MUCH BETTER. He’s now about halfway into his second month and he’s getting up all by himself 99% of the time. He’s no longer crying in the middle of the night and he’s completely off Gabapenton due to not showing any signs of discomfort. I wish I would have known about this sooner, it’s not just given me more time with him, but time as a happy comfortable puppy. I’d buy this 100 times over and if you have an older dog with arthritis you should get this immediately.

The best thing for my dog with arthritis!

Encore Mobility helped sustain my severely arthritic dog for years longer than expected. We'd tried everything else - shots, acupuncture, pain meds, etc - but adding in Mobility made all the difference. The pills are tasty & chewable as well, so no issue getting your dog to take these. I am now giving this to my other 2 German Shorthaired Pointers who are 15 and 8 since this is such a potent & amazing supplement - I wanted to start them on this early and get ahead of pain & joint issues.

Works well

I'm mostly giving these to our 7 year old beagle pre-emptively but they seem to give her an extra pep and she loves the taste!


My almost blind 15year old not only had cognitive issues- droopy, staring at the wall and moving slowly despite all the joint and other supplements he was taking. Tried this and I got a NEW dog. Moving, jumping around and very alert. Now I give it to his brother- also 15 -as he seemed to make an extra effort to pull himself up. They are both much improved. I have a 13yr old female rescue as well - she is starting to gnaw on her front paw joint so she will be getting this too when my new order is received. I will be gifting some to a friend to try on her rescue -with an injured hip and painful walking. -Hope she likes it and will continue to use it. No adverse reaction as I continue to give them their usual supps. Thanks very much.

This product delivers!

My 10 year old golden is wise to all the supplements I have tried to slip him in the past to improve mobility. Although each product said my dog would love it....Nope! He could sniff it out and reject it no matter how I disguised it. I could never tell if any of them worked because the battle to get him take them was a lost cause unless I shoved them down his throat - and that felt counterproductive. I have had great success getting him to take Encore Mobility. I still have to disguise the tablets, but he doesn't seem to notice or care. There has been a distinct improvement in his energy and mobility. He has two other golden siblings that give him a run for his money and he has done much better at matching their energy and endurance. Very happy to have found a product he will take and that gives evidence to the benefits! I highly recommend giving Encore Mobility a try!

Encore Mobility is working great for Rocky

Rocky is now almost 14! He's an 87 pound mixed breed who has chronic gastritis and can't tolerate NSAID's anymore. After starting him on Encore Mobility about 6 months ago, I've seen a positive change. He's less stiff and seems more comfortable at night. It doesn't affect his stomach adversely which is great! I'm going to continue giving it to him! Thank you as well for your helpful articles geared toward our beloved senior pets. There's never been one that I don't get a wealth of new information!

Miracle supplement!

Ande is a Pomeranian Lhasa mix and 13.5 years old. He has severe arthritis in his joints, feet and toes. He stopped being able to walk or go up small steps one year ago. Was looking at wrap carriers or wheelchairs, but just couldn't go there-being outside and taking long walks is his favorite thing! So I researched and researched until finding your supplement. Ande is very picky and won't eat them so he gets full tablet crushed up with water in syringe in mouth daily. It's game changer. He has more energy than ever! Along with doggie NSAID from vet, he's a new man! We can go every other day but longer than that and I can tell. Your formula with green lipped muscles and the deer antler is *the* key and most important part of his regimen. Thank you for giving us more time to do what he loves to do.

Cierrah Rodriguez

My 16 year old Pomeranian was starting to become more lethargic and not wanting to walk around and it was breaking my heart. She had an episode with idiopathic vestibular syndrome back in April that really knocked her down. She was still so active and was declining in activity after this incident so I figured I would give anything a try to help. She’s been on encore about a month and she’s up walking around so much more. Exploring the backyard again and even getting excited for her treats again! Truly such an amazing feeling for her to be more herself again!


Dr. Buzby,
How do you properly thank someone that has given you the gift 💝 of added time with the one you love?? Ollie/Oliver is my 14 1/2 year old Golden Lab / White Shepherd. He was born with hip dysplasia and got arthritis quite young. He is no stranger to pain!! He was hit by 2 cars at a year and a half and his leg was crushed. He came back from that and you would never have known he got hurt like that!! He has been my best friend and gotten me through some of the worst things I have “EVER GONE THROUGH”!! He has been in good health besides the arthritis until 13 years old. His Thyroid, liver and kidney started acting up and I got the liver and kidneys back normal with supplements and my vet!! He is on Thyroid medication! He is on 2 medications for pain daily and was on a supplement with glucosamine and that wasn’t enough!! I started him on a human supplement that is for ALL kinds of pain!!! Bone, Muscle, Joints, Nerve, Skin!! It is supposed to alleviate inflammation!! It has Tumeric in it!! It did so well for me with my pain that I looked up the ingredients and saw all were compatible for dogs! They helped him immensely for a good 6 months!! I had him to the vet for a check, which I have been doing every 3-4 months now and everything looked good but a week later his back end stopped working!!! I knew I had to put him down!! He looked at me telling me he was done!! That’s when I realized I had run out of supplements completely about a week before!! I got the human one and yours cause it was cheaper than what I had been getting and it had different ingredients!! It took 2-3 days to get the supplements and within 3 days of taking the 2 supplements he was walking again!! With just the human one he could get up but he couldn’t walk!! Your supplement got him walking!!! I truly WANT and NEED my dog, my OLLIE!!! I KNOW, I could lose him any moment!!! Every moment I have with him now is a gift 💝 that you have given me!!! THANK YOU 💝THANK YOU 🥰THANK YOU ❤️‍🩹!!!! I mean it from the bottom of my HEART 💔❤️❤️‍🩹🐾🐕🐾🦮🫀😢💔🐾🐾

5 stars!

I was not paid nor asked to leave this review. Just honest feedback and finally getting around to leaving a review. I started my 13 year old dog on Encore Mobility back in March. The results in those 7 months are amazing, seriously have a puppy again some days. My boy Gulliver was heavily limping at the beginning of the year due to some arthritis, the mornings were really slow for him. We live on 2nd floor condo and going up and down the stairs were a challenge. Almost immediately (less than a week) these started to work for him and he absolutely LOVES to get his “puppy pill” before his breakfast and dinner. He gets just as excited about it as his actual food! It has made such a difference in his life and ours, have tears in my eyes typing this. We can go for longer walks again, he runs at the beach and gets the zoomies after he gets back in from a walk and when we go on vacation he’s right by our side. If you’re contemplating buying this for your dog, I’d highly recommend it like all the other reviews. I cannot thank you all enough! Love the fact the company is located so close to me and the quality of ingredients. 100% trust and recommend it!
