Rose-Hip Vital® Canine is a plant-based, 100% natural joint treatment and nutritional supplement that provides anti-inflammatory and immune system support for your dog. Besides joint health, it may be of benefit for improving the general well-being of active and ageing dogs.

Made from rosehips manufactured with patented processes, Rose-Hip Vital® Canine is scientifically and clinically proven to reduce inflammation, protect cartilage, improve general health and improve performance. Patented extraction and drying processes isolate and activate the compound GOPO® which has scientifically proven anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties. GOPO® works by stopping excess white blood cells from gathering around inflamed tissue, thereby helping to break the cycle of inflammation and protect cartilage. Rosehip products that do not contain GOPO® have not been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.

It is also a powerful antioxidant, a rich source of vitamin C, and is a safe, scientifically proven formula.


May be of benefit for improving the joint health and general well-being of active and aging dogs, and is also used for:

  • Joint pain and Joint mobility
  • Prevention of joint problems
  • Osteoarthritis / degenerative joint disease
  • Cartilage protection
  • Immune system support & general wellbeing
  • Recovery after exercise
  • Coat quality


More Effective than Glucosamine Supplements

One of our 30+ scientific research papers is a comparison between our patented Rosehip powder & glucosamine. The study found that there was a clinically significant improvement in the group who took our product verses those who took glucosamine.

Results are typically noticed after three weeks. If possible mix with food morning and night. Should your dog suffer from chronic inflammation it is safe to administer the loading dose ongoing. If you are using Rose-Hip Vital® Canine as a preventative there is no need to administer the loading dose. For dogs weighing less than 7.5kg Technically you could halve the dose for dogs up to 7.5kg and expect the same results. The recommendation would be to administer the full loading dose until results are noticed and then slowly reduce the dose until a balance between cost and effectiveness can be achieved.

The more Rose-Hip Vital® Canine your dog takes, the more effective it will be. While it isn’t possible for your dog to overdose on Rose-Hip Vital® Canine, if your dog has a low tolerance for vitamin C any excess will be excreted. The appropriate dose might also depend on whether Rose-Hip Vital® Canine is being used as a treatment or for prevention.

Tips for fussy eaters:
If you already know your dog is a fussy eater, the recommendation is to gradually introduce Rose-Hip Vital® Canine. Start with a small pinch of powder and slowly increase to the recommended dose over time. Other tips to get your fussy dog to eat Rose-Hip Vital® Canine include mixing it with wet food, mince, sardines, tuna, yoghurt, cottage cheese, milk, raw egg, butter or stock.

For dogs with a history of stomach sensitivity Introduce Rose-Hip Vital® Canine very slowly. Start with a small pinch of powder and gradually increase once tolerance has been established.

NOTE: Part of the APVMA (Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Association) approval process for Rose-Hip Vital® Canine included a 3 month tolerance study involving the administration of 5X the recommended loading dose to 5 dogs for 3 months. At the conclusion of the study no adverse reactions or side-effects were detected.

A. Yes, Rose-Hip Vital® Canine is suitable for dogs of all breeds, sizes, and ages, from puppies to senior dogs.

Q. What is the difference between Rose-Hip Vital for humans and dogs?
A. Absolutely nothing. All of our Rose-Hip Vital® products contain the exact same patented Rosehip powder. The whole family can share!

Q. Is there natural Vitamin C in Rose-Hip Vital Canine?
A. Yes. Rosehips are known to be one of nature’s richest sources of natural vitamin C. The patented processes used to manufacture Rose-Hip Vital® Canine maintain the integrity of the natural vitamins and minerals found in the Rosehip. The vitamin C in Rose-Hip Vital® is 100% natural and therefore absorbed more effectively then synthetic vitamin C. 2.5g of Rose-Hip Vital® powder contains 12.5mg of natural vitamin C.

The story behind Rose-Hip Vital® Canine

We begin on the Danish island of Langeland. A pristine location with a population of approximately 13,000 and measuring 50km from north to south and up to 9km east to west. In the early 1980s, one such resident, a Mr Erik ‘Farmer’ Hansen was truly dissatisfied with the forms of therapy available to treat his Osteoarthritis. On the recommendation of a colleague he tried Rosehip Marmalade, and this changed everything.

Highly impressed with the level of symptomatic relief offered by the Rosehip, Hansen began small scale production and distribution of dried Rosehip powder. Before long, thousands of letters from satisfied customers flooded his small office and Hansen realised that he had an amazing treatment to share with the world.

In 1995, Hansen’s son delivered some of the letters of recommendation to an inflammation specialist based at Fredricksberg Hospital, University of Copenhagen. Upon reviewing the feedback, he initiated clinical trials to assess the validity of the reported success at a formal scientific level. The invitro studies undertaken demonstrated impressive results which supported the high effectiveness of the patented Rosehip powder.

What started on a few acres in the early 1980’s has grown into Hyben Vital ApS, the farming and manufacturing company for Rose-Hip Vital® branded powder. Hyben Vital ApS is a family-owned company that spans over 200 hectares and also employs some 40 professional farmers in Denmark and Sweden who grow Rosehip full-time to keep up with the demand.
