Excellent supplement!
I have 2 dogs on this supplement and I am very pleased with the results. I've seen some improvement in my 10 year old lab mix since she's been on it. But my 12 year old boy, he honestly acts like a puppy again. We have a 3 year old dog too and he keeps up with her with no problem.

My dog has been taking glucosamine chewables for years, and I thought I would try another brand. After looking at this one and reading the reviews I thought I would give it a try. After a month my dog had no relief. He was limping and sore all the time. I put him back on the glucosamine vitamins I was giving him before and after 2 weeks he was getting better.

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.

QUESTION
glyco-flex II, 90 CT
ANSWERS (2)
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!

Is there a shelf life on the bite-sized chews. My vet ordered these and their label indicated discard by 10/10/11. I just got them 4-21-11
ANSWERS (2)
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!

My thought is your pet may be reacting to the Perna which is derived from a mussel. This is similar to a shell fish allergy in humans. I would recommend you discuss this with your veterinarian as there may be some other reason for your pet's reaction.

Move to the chewables. Pills most often are eliminated through the dogs bowels and they do not get the amount of medication that they need. Anytime that you can choose chewable over pills do it.

What is Glyco-Flex II?

Glyco-Flex II is a joint supplement (stage II of the comprehensive Glyco-Flex program for dogs) used for maintaining healthy joints. Glyco-Flex II is recommended by veterinarians for dogs 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:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • All natural ingredients
  • Ideal for dogs of all weights
  • Supports joint health and connective tissue function
  • Easy-to-administer chewable tablets for dogs

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.

Brand Name:

Glyco-Flex (Vetri-Science)

Active and Inactive Ingredient(s)

Glyco-Flex II for Dogs (per tablet): Glucosamine HCl (750mg), Perna canaliculus (Green-Lipped Mussel) (600mg), Methysulfonylmethane (500mg), N,N Dimethylglycine HCl (100mg), Manganese Amino Acid Chelate (10mg).

What is this product used for:

Availability:

Glyco-Flex II for Dogs is a non-prescription (OTC) product.

How should this product be used:

The usual dose of Glyco-Flex II for Dogs for the first 4-6 weeks in dogs up to 30 lbs is 1/2 tablet. For dogs 31-60 lbs use 1 tablet, for dogs 61-100 lbs use 2 tablets and for dogs 101 lbs and over use 2 1/2 tablets.

In the event of overdose:

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.

Glyco-Flex II is scored to make breaking in half easier. However, Glyco-Flex II is also available as a Soft Chew.

Your dog may just have an ear infection. I use Zymox with 1% cortisone and that works great on the ears. The plain (without cortisone) doesn't work for Pete.

My thought is your pet may be reacting to the Perna which is derived from a mussel. This is similar to a shell fish allergy in humans. I would recommend you discuss this with your veterinarian as there may be some other reason for your pet's reaction.

QUESTION
How long do I give Libby the initial dosage of 2 pills?
ANSWERS (2)
Move to the chewables. Pills most often are eliminated through the dogs bowels and they do not get the amount of medication that they need. Anytime that you can choose chewable over pills do it.

Great question, Mary! The initial dosage of 2 pills daily should be given for the first 4-6 weeks. After that, a maintenance dose of 1 pill should be given daily.
