What are Glyco-Flex Soft Chews?

Glyco-Flex Soft Chews contain the same formula as Glyco-Flex chewable tablets, but are now available as a delicious chicken liver flavored soft chew. Each Glyco Flex Soft Chew contains Perna, Glucosamine, MSM, Dimethylglycine (DMG), and Manganese to help maintain healthy joints. Made in the U.S.A.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:
  • All natural ingredients
  • Two soft chews of Glyco-Flex II for Cats have 250 mg of glucosamine and 300 mg of Perna Canaliculus (green lipped mussel), and two soft chews of Glyco-Flex III for Dogs have 1000 mg of glucosamine and 600 mg of Perna Canaliculus (green lipped mussel)
  • Comes in easy-to-administer chewable tablets
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good - He Actually EATS Them! I had been looking for a hip/joint supplement for my 13 year old pit bull for a year; he rejected 6 different types out of hand. Even when broken up small and mixed with Pate or in meat, he would know they were there and absolutely refuse them. I even tried a liquid formulation of glucosamine and chondroitin that you pour on his food, and he thereafter refused to eat from that bowl again. When I first offered him these he refused as usual, perhaps not liking the smell. I persisted, offering him a quarter of a chew over and over, finally he took it, liked it, and ate all I would give him. Strangely enough, this happens daily. Initially he refuses, gives me dirty looks and won't touch it, then after a few minutes he tries a small piece of one, and apparently remembers that he likes them because then he will eat them like I eat tic tacs. A week in hes still taking them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it changed our family our dachshund had bad arthritis and could not get up small step from den to kitchen. friend told us about this--gave her first piece at 2 pm and by 6 pm she was hopping around the house. I went to pharmacy and got and equivalent product for my arthritis and now I feel better. this has been great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got my normal dog back again! I am on the third bag of Glyco-Flex and when I first started them my 14 year old Jack Russell/Pug couldn't walk. I took her to my vet and she said to start these and fish oil. I followed the directions but when I cut back to only one a day she started not walking good again so I have to keep her on 2 a day. She won't eat them so I cut them up and put them in her food. She is running down the yard chasing other dogs again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from STINKS!!!!! These smell so bad that I cannot help from retching when opening the bag. I can't see going through this every day. My dog eats but doesn't particularly like them. We've used two other brands of joint support, neither of which stank, and both of which she seemed to like better. Will switch back to the expensive ones my vet sells, I guess. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great joint supplement It's been 3 weeks since Gracie started on her Glyco Flex II chews. What a difference. She loves the chews and isn't limping anymore!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit pricy but a noticeble difference improvement My dog was a little stiff in the morning when she woke up and had a slight limp till she got around. also she is less reluctant to jump off my lap now. It has been an improvement after about 3 1/2 months now. She can run full out playing Frisbee without an occasional yelp every now and then.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My dog won't eat it just alone. Every AM when I feed him, I break the Glycoflex into 2-3 pieces and put it in his food. He eats it no problem.

What is the difference between the Glycoflex 3 tablet and chews? The price difference of $80 verses $54 seems alot for the same product.

Asked by: Abbey
Thank you for your question. The supplements are the same as well as the ingredients. The differences are one is a soft chew and the other is a tablet.

What is the fat content?

My 9 year old boxer has pancreatitis. Although she has not had any issues since her initial episode several years ago, I am very careful to make sure she keeps to a low fat diet.
Asked by: nelley
My bag does not give the fat content. You could probably find that info. on the 1800PetMeds.com site.

Why is the Glyco-Flex II I buy from my vet prescribed for my 50 pound dog and has different ingredient amounts than either your I or II varieties?

The two products seem to be different though both with Glyco-Flex II.
Asked by: Nana
Not sure, I use the III product.

How long are the glyco-flex chews good for? I can find no expiration date?

Asked by: ivyabbie
I don't know but I do find that when the chews get hard and crumbly, it is hard to bet my boys to eat them.

Is dog drinking more?

I don't know if this increase in drinking is because of beginning the GlycoFlex Soft Chews or it was a coincidence that Trevors drinking has increased... He does have diabetes & wasdrinking a large amount of water until he began to take medication...he slowed down considerably but since starting the soft chews....it has increased. we have a doc's appt to discuss the necessary action.. He is otherwise doing quite well and I don't want to stop using them.
Asked by: Leanie
Let me know what your Vet says about the increase of drinking. In the past, I had a dog on insulin shots for her diabetes so she drank water a lot. I hope Trevor continues to improve.
