What is Glyco-Flex II?

Glyco-Flex II is a nutritional supplement used for maintaining healthy joints. Glyco-Flex II is recommended by veterinarians for dogs and cats with a moderate need for joint support, adult and maturing pets, sporting and working breeds, as well as a follow-up to orthopedic surgery. Made in the USA.
 
For: Cats and Dogs
 
Benefits:
All natural ingredients
Supports joint health and connective tissue function for cats and dogs of all stages of life
Comes in easy-to-administer chewable tablets for dogs and bite-sized chews for cats

How it works:
The active ingredients include glucosamine and Perna Canaliculus (green lipped mussel). Glucosamine is a natural compound that is found in healthy cartilage in both humans and pets. It helps hydrate healthy joints by increasing the production of molecules that bind and hold water in the cartilage. Healthy cartilage provides cushioning which helps protect a pet's joints while exercising. Many believe that it provides clinical benefit in the synovial fluid by strengthening cartilage and aiding glycosaminoglycan synthesis. Further research on the effectiveness of glucosamine is still needed, but many of our customers find it to be very beneficial to their pets.

Cautions:
Diabetic pets or pets that are overweight and have problems with glucose tolerance should have their blood sugars monitored if they are given glucosamine supplements.

Not sure yet My dog is 58 pounds about 8 years old. Right on the borderline. He's been on 1 pill a day for about 2 weeks. Still has some problems getting up and down of the couch if he lays too long. He does seem to be moving a lettle better. Probably just need to give it more time. 05/20/2013
Told to use Glyco-Flex II by our Vet We now have our two German Shepards on the Glyco and both are doing great. 12/09/2012
It seems to work! Stan has been taking Glyco-Flex II for over a month and he seems to have more get up and go! Being 11 years old and 120 lbs. he was having lots of issues with his hind quarters. No hip displasia but wobbly legs and such. He now has less trouble moving around and even runs around like he used to do. 09/03/2012
Glyco-Flex II My greyhound, Randy, will be nine soon. He weighs 86 pounds. He has had severe pain in his right shoulder since we adopted him in 2008. My vet suggested Glyco-Flex II, I give him a pill a day now (started out with two a day), and he is a different dog! I wouldn't go without Glyco-Flex II 07/10/2012
Outstanding OTC Pet Product My toy size breed canine has been on Glyco-Flex II for two solid years now. She is 9 and is bouncing around and running after that same squirrel that seems to follow her everywhere! Whether she's at the park or in the backyard, my dog can run, run and run after the squirrel enemy. Before Glyco-Flex II, one Vet wanted to operate on her kneecaps at a cost of $850.00 per knee!. After Glyco-Flex II, she is not limping at all! She continues her quest to eliminate that squirrel (wherever he may be next!). 05/03/2012

glyco-flex II, 90 CT

Glyco-flex II, 90 count was perscribed by vet when the dog is dianosed bilateral hip dysplasia when the border collie was about six month old a month ago. The dog just had a FHO surgery on one hip about 14 days ago. The question is should the pet taking same amount per day which is 1 pill or 1/2 now? He started the med. on 8/13/11, last month. According to the vet who discribed this med: after taking 30 day for 1/per, will reduce to 1/2 per day (before surgery).
Thank you

Answer: 
Thanks for your question. Typically, Glyco-Flex II is given by the dog's weight initially. After a 4-6 week period of daily dosing, in your dog's case, 1 tablet daily, the dog's dose should drop to the maintenance dose of 1/2 tablet daily. I take it from your description your dog is between 31 and 60 pounds. Regardless of the surgery, continue the maintenance program of 1/2 tab daily since it is now May of 2012 way past the 4-6 week 'start up' period. Initially, the daily dosing began August of 2011; therefore your dog is well over the initial 4-6 week period for the daily full dose. And be faithful with the product. Try not to miss his half tablet maintenance dose because it is essential to maintain an effective blood level of Glyco-Flex II. Consult your DVM if your 7 month old puppy is not progressing after surgery with this maintenance dosing. Perhaps your DVM would chose adjuvant drug therapy. All this means is while the pup is healing from surgery, your Vet may add another drug product!

Answer: 
I would follow your veterinarian's directions to give only 1/2 tablet. If you are not sure when your veterinarian wanted you to begin giving the 1/2 tablet I suggest you contact him/her for clarification.

Answer: 
Thanks for your question. The manufacturer's label clearly has the expiration date printed on the label's side, vertically. For example, turning Glyco-Flex II on it's side you can read the lot number and the last 4 numbers are the expiration date consisting of the month and the year of expiration. Mine reads 0613. My dog's Glyco-Flex II is fresh through 6/30/2013!

Answer: 
Glyco Flex II chewable tablets are natural imitation roast chicken flavored and the soft chews are chicken liver flavored. I'm sure both of these are flavors a dog would love.
