Disappointed After trying this med on our dog for over a month, we were disappointed to notice no change in her joint stiffness due to arthritis.
Our vet then prescribed Deramaxx, an nsaid. After three days, she's already exhibiting more flexibility. There are side effects possible. She hasn't had any at this time. Ask your vet....more info
It works These supplements have helped ease my 12-year-old dog's arthritis pain, so that she's much more comfortable and active again. I can see the difference between when she does take them and doesn't. I highly recommend this product for a better quality of life for your dog....more info
moving better I bought these after a few people saw my aging puppy (she will always be my puppy) struggling a bit with getting up and around. It has been about 2 weeks now and she does seem to be able to get up and move better. Especially, in the morning which was always tough for her. Perfect, no but a lot better! A vet recommended taking this with a Rx as well. Haven't done that yet....more info
Canine joint relief I was recomended Glyco-Flex II by my vet for my then 8 year old Australian Shepherd who upon getting up was stiff and limped a little. After giving daily for 2 years his limp is gone and he continues to run and jump pain free. At 10 years old he can still keep pace with his 2 year old Aussie brother. ...more info
Glyco Flex II might cause itchiness? This paragraph is not so much a product review - I am merely sharing my experience with others. I recently switched my senior golden retriever from Glyco Flex I to II; and his level of itchiness increased significantly within a day. He was on it for about 10 days until I got some more Glyco Flex I; when I switched back to Glyco Flex I his itchiness decreased. I've been very happy with Glyco Flex I and think highly of Vetri Science. But I did want others to be aware of a possible [food] allergy with the crab or other additional ingredients in the Glyco Flex II....more info

Great price We had gotten this product the first time at my Vet's office and paid a lot more for it. By ordering it through Amazon it saved us quite a bit of money. Our Golden Retriever was recently diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia and will probably take these joint supplements for life. She usually fuzzes to eat any pills but this one I just mix into her food and she has no problem eating it. Great product....more info
Glyco Flex II - supplement We give this supplement to our Bernese Mountain Dog. We heard about it from a friend who has a BMD and has had no signs of lameness in his dog. To date, it seems to be working - she has not had any limping or other signs of joint problems. We prefer to treat pro-actively versus waiting for pain....more info
Excellent My dog has been taking these for years and they do help his hip dysplasia. Besides can't beat the price....more info
Glyco Flex II Fine product, if pricey. I have been using it with my young dogs for 3 years as a preventative, so I have no way of judging how effective it might be for older dogs with joint problems. However, after reading many testimonials about Glyco Flex and reading of the studies of the effectiveness of glucosamine, MSN and chondroitin, I am convinced of the overall value of providing my dogs this supplement....more info
