Glyco-Flex II

Glyco-Flex II by VetriScience

Glyco-Flex II is currently on backorder from the manufacturer.

What is Glyco-Flex II?
Glyco-Flex II is a nutritional supplement used for maintaining healthy joints. Glyco-Flex II is recommended by veterinarians for dogs and cats 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: Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • All natural ingredients
  • Supports joint health and connective tissue function for cats and dogs of all stages of life
  • Comes in easy-to-administer chewable tablets for dogs and bite-sized chews for cats

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.
