What A Difference!!!
Toby is almost 13 years old and is having arthritis issues. She couldn't open her mouth wide nor could she handle steps very well. Soon after we got her on this product, we started to see improvement -- that was about a year ago. Now she can yawn, run up and down the steps and pretty much do what she wants. By the end of the day we can see some fatigue, but that's normal for a dog of her age. We're very pleased with how Glyco-Flex has worked for her.

My dog hates this
These pills may be listed as chewable, but my dog just spits them out. Apparently they taste like garbage. I had to give them to him like a pill wrapped in a pill pocket. Then, about a half hour later, he throws them up (even when they were given after he had eaten. A total waste of my money.

this stuff really works
Started my 9 yr old dog on Glyco-Flex I on my vets recommendation when she exhibited frequent stiffness and limping in her front legs. By the time we were down to the maintenance dose (6 wks) she was clearly feeling relief. She happily chases after squirrels and bunnies without "paying for it" a few hours later.Highly recommend for anyone whose dog is showing early signs of arthritis.

so much for chewable
Although I know this has good ingredients it is far from being chewable for my dog. She has been on 2 other brands that she thought of as "treats". Now I have to smother the Glyco-Flex in cheesewiz to even get her to eat it!

Worked well for cold weather stiffness
I gave this to both of my aging Dobermans last winter and it seemed to make them much less stiff and more agile. I stopped it in the warm weather but am ordering it again this fall. Our vet said the green-lipped mussel in Glyco Flex makes it more effective.

Seems to help
I got this for my daschund. He had disk problems a few years ago requiring surgical intervention and he has been in obvious pain since. It does seem to help. He moves without limping now and the range of motion of his 'bad' back leg is better. He won't take them as treats, which if you know daschunds tells you the taste really needs improvement. If I drop half a tab in with his food he eats it with no problems though.

I have a 4 lb Papillon. Her current script is for only 20 tabs. Do you have a smaller size than the 120 tabs. She is 13 and has congestive heart failure and her life is winding down. Thank you
ANSWERS (1)
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not offer the Glyco Flex in anything less than 120ct. Also this is a over the counter medication and does not require a prescription.

What is Glyco-Flex for Dogs (Stage I)?

Glyco-Flex for Dogs (Stage I) is a nutritional supplement (stage one 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). It is used for maintaining healthy joints, and is recommended for younger dogs or dogs predisposed to hip or joint dysfunction. It is available as natural imitation roast chicken flavored chewable tablets. Glyco Flex for Dogs is made in the USA.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • All natural ingredients
  • Supports joint health for puppies and dogs with 500 mg of glucosamine and 600 mg of Perna Canaliculus (green lipped mussel) per tablet
  • Comes in easy-to-administer chewable tablet

How does Glyco-Flex for Dogs (Stage I) work?

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 dogs or dogs that are overweight and have problems with glucose tolerance should have their blood sugars monitored if they are given glucosamine supplements. This product is for use in dogs only. Glucosamine, in humans, may increase insulin resistance and consequently affect glucose tolerance. 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.

  • Glyco-Flex I for Dogs can be given with or without food.
  • If giving more than 1 tablet daily, divide between AM and PM.
