What is Glyco-Flex III?

Glyco-Flex III is a nutritional supplement (stage III of a comprehensive 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. It is used for maintaining healthy joints, and is recommended for geriatric, and working and sporting breed dogs, as well as a follow-up to orthopedic surgery. Glyco Flex III is available as natural imitation roast chicken flavored chewable tablets or chicken liver flavored soft chews. Made in the USA. It is an alternative to SynoviMSM which is not currently available.

How it works:
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.

Cautions:
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.

Glycoflex 3 There is no better trustworthy neutraceutical company in the veterinary profession than the vetriscience company Their very first product called glycoflex, has reliably and in a trustworthy manner served the veterinary community and our companion dogs and cats with degenerative joint disease and arthritis for several decades now. . Fortunately with great distributers like 1800petmeds, products like glycoflex III are now readily available to the public at very reasonable costs. Not only does this wonderful whole food supplement contain the whole food perna canaliculus,(that has been researched recently in even human medicine in significantly helping very severe human arthritis patients), that is naturally rich in glucosamine and chondroitan sulphate, but also adds the wonderful synergistic nutrients in MSM and dimethylglycine(called DMG) to this wonderful formula which only enhances efficacy of this wonderful combination product. . The stage III formula is especially useful in those pets with either advanced arthritis of any cause, or in helping post operatively in terms of reducing recovery time in those aging pets who need to undergo stressful and painful orthopedic procedures. I find it best when this product is combined with other wonderful synergistic joint supplements like proanthozone from 1800petmeds, as well as fatty acids like super joint omega or super pure Omega 3 from 1800petmeds. When these products are used in combination, the efficacy of the combination certainly goes up significantly in my experience and opinion. The only drawbacks I have seen are in those rare dogs who are allergic to shellfish or wont eat this chewable flavored joint supplement, and on even rarer occasion in those pets with established diabetes, where sometimes dose adjustments need to be made. With all of that being said, I give this product an overall rating of 5, with its effectiveness a 5 and its taste a 4. 02/25/2009
THis product really works.MY lab runs and plays like he is 2or 3 years old and he is now 10.Try it you will not be disappointed. 07/17/2014
I think this is a great product! Rebel just turned 2 somewhere around the first of the year. We adopted him so his age is close. He is half Red Heeler and 1/2 Bassett Hound,. He runs like the wind most of the day. He suffered a knee injury, a Vet friend of mine suggested we give him Glyco-Flex III for life and he is better, and still runs like the wind.! 05/06/2014
Glyco Flex 111 I have two dogs and they are both on this med. Taco (Shepherd) is 14 yrs. old and his legs tend to bother him. This med has given him back his agility. Mikey (Shih Tzu) is 12 and has for years limped due to a hip issue. Since going on this med he rarely limps anymore and flies around like he did as a puppy. I highly recommend this product. 12/14/2013
Intolerable Wanted to step-up the joint supplement for our 11 year old Lab mix, however she was unable to tolerate this supplement. Caused yellow emesis and diarrhea. Will return to the classic supplement. She tolerates the Classic Glycoflex very well. 08/13/2013

Is there the same amount of medication in one tablet as there is in one chew? If so, then I don't understand the huge price differential.

Answer: 
Either one would work for him. You could try the Glyco Flex II first since it has less Glucosamine in it and depending on the results seen if needed move up to the Glyco Flex III for more medication if needed.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question Springer. Glyco Flex III does not contain any artificial flavors or colors which can cause discoloration in your poodle's fur. Check the following items which can cause discoloration in your pet's fur: other over the counter or prescription medications, your pet's food, also, give your pet distilled water and food from a stainless steel. Check with your vet if the problem persists.
