Hip & Joint Soft Chews (Formerly Run Free™)


Hip & Joint Soft Chews for Targeted Support

Use before or after dinner or as a treat!

We took our original Wholistic Run Free™ formula and created our new function soft chews! Wholistic Run Free™ Soft Chews are a synergistic blend of proven nutraceuticals that provide superior joint support. Wholistic Run Free™ Soft Chews exclusively target joints and their supportive structures all in a convenient soft chew! Use before or after dinner or as a treat! Wholistic Run Free™ Soft Chews have the same great palatability, potency, and quality you come to expect from Wholistic Pet Organics!

Our pets’ bodies are designed to be active and agile. But as time takes its toll on a pet’s skeletal system, our pets can begin to “slow down” and show signs of aging.

Joints are constantly undergoing normal remodeling through a process of “wear and repair.” It is the damage to the cartilage matrix that allows elbows, hips, and other joints to become weak and to lose elasticity.

Wholistic Run Free™ is a synergistic blend of proven nutraceuticals and antioxidants to help combat this process and provide superior joint support and comfort for healthy hips and joints.

Unlike other animal supplement manufacturers, our soft chews are made without the use of heat, water, or gumming agents. Heat can deteriorate a product’s effectiveness while using water requires high levels of preservatives to extend shelf life and eliminate the chance of mold. The addition of gumming agents helps control moisture however can cause digestive upset.

Our process preserves the texture, flavor, and benefits of all ingredients without any of these downsides

Give your pet a new lease on life and see your pet Run Free™!

A Synergistic Blend of Nutraceuticals

  • Glucosamine is a natural building block of cartilage that can help to prevent cartilage degeneration. Glucosamine also influences the production of hyaluronic acid, the main constituent of synovial fluid, the lubricating liquid between joints that allows bones to move smoothly past each other.
  • Chondroitin sulfate helps protect joints by inhibiting the degradative enzymes that destroy articular (joint) cartilage. Without inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels in the joints, calcification occurs, and the body becomes unable to heal damaged joint tissues. Chondroitin decreases the degradation of cartilage as glucosamine rebuilds it.
  • MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), a natural source of dietary sulfur, is critical to maintaining the connective tissue’s elasticity and flexibility in joints.


  • Delivers Total Body Support™
  • Helps promote healthy hips and joints
  • Helps support a normal inflammatory response
  • Helps support a normal range of motion
  • Provides a natural source of EFAs and high antioxidant levels

Chondroitin sulfate helps protect joints by inhibiting the degradative enzymes that destroy articular (joint) cartilage. Shark cartilage, which is primarily composed of chondroitin sulfate, is best known for its anti-angiogenesis properties. Without inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels in the joints, calcification occurs and the body becomes unable to heal damaged joint tissues. Chondroitin decreases the degradation of cartilage as glucosamine rebuilds it. Our shark cartilage is obtained exclusively from legalized fishing methods.

A natural building block of cartilage. It influences the production of hyaluronic acid, a main constituent of synovial fluid that lubricates joints and allows bones to move smoothly past one another. In healthy pets, the body is able to synthesize a sufficient amount of its own glucosamine to keep the existing cartilage healthy, but when an animal ages or there is damage to the joint cartilage, the body may not be able to produce enough to keep up with the body’s increased needs

A rich source or sulfur, which is required for most body functions. Sulfur is the fourth most abundant nutrient in the body and is stored in nearly every single cell with the highest concentrations being found in the skin, hair, nails, cartilage, and joints. The sulfur found in MSM is functionally and structurally important to 150 compounds within the body, including tissues, antibodies, enzymes, and hormones. Because mineral depletion of the soil is an on-going concern, dietary sources such as meat, eggs, and fish may not be adequate for maintenance levels and certainly are not adequate for therapeutic levels.

Organic Flaxseed helps promotes normal cell functioning and the production of hormone-like substances necessary for energy metabolism, cardiovascular, and immune health.

Ester-C® is a patented form of Vitamin C that is “body-ready” and found to be four times more readily available to body tissue than basic Vitamin C. There is an increased demand for Ester C® during times of stress such as heavy exercise or injury. Being an important constituent of connective tissue, Ester C® also serves as a chondroprotective, anti-inflammatory, and immune responsive substance. Ester-C® is very easy on the stomach lining.

Run free chewable

I have been giving this to 7 yr old GSD and noticed a big change in her gait. She is not hurting in her rear when walking and moves much easier. Highly recommend this product.

Treats that Help

I give these to my aged dog as treats and she love them, and I love that she is getting joint support nutrition.

Jeanne Mueller (Charlottesville, US)
Ordering our second tub now!

Just finishing up our first month of these chews for my 11.5 yr old golden lab, Winston. He loves the taste and so far they seem to have made a difference with his joint pain. Only wish I would have started him on these earlier than now.

Katya (San Salvador, SV)
Great way to prevent

I am using this supplement on my 1 year old maltese to prevent injuries since she is super jumpy and active! she loves the taste would totally recommend

Pillonius (Seattle, US)
Game Changer!

Our little frenchie had a minor injury jumping off of a step that was a little too big for her, and had some intermittent limping on her front leg. Vet cleared her and couldn't find anything wrong, but it persisted. We put her on these chews, and several months later, she hasn't limped once! They were a total game changer for us, and gave her that little bit of extra support, so she could heal fully, without any more pain!
