Glyco-Flex III is a nutritional supplement (stage III of the comprehensive Glyco-Flex program for dogs), containing glucosamine as well as Perna Canaliculus (green lipped mussel - which is a good source of protein, minerals, and chondroitin sulfates), and MSM.

Glyco-Flex III is also available as Glyco-Flex III Soft Chews.
The active ingredients include glucosamine, Perna Canaliculus (green lipped mussel), and MSM. 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.
Diabetic dogs or dogs that are overweight and have problems with glucose tolerance should have their blood sugars monitored if they are given glucosamine supplements.
