5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product March 5 2014
Fantastic product really helps out our dog with soreness and stiffness, do yourself a favor and buy it in the USA, you can get three packages for $85.00 (entirely pets) with a bonus treat and free shipping to a US postal box, same product same manufacturer. Pricing is not amazons fault but do we ever get ripped off north of the border... 3X the cost, this is why Canadians shop in the US?

I love this product. I have a 13 year old Parson Russell Terrier with arthritis of the spine. He was having a hard time standing straight and going over things. I started giving him this product and he is almost back to his old self. He is running and going over everything. I would recommend this product to anybody that has a dog with arthritis.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine for moderate joint/arthritis issues; but better options are available for severe situations Sept. 9 2012
By Catrinka - Published on Amazon.com
I feel that Glyco-Flex III is probably a great supplement for dogs with mild to moderate joint or arthritis issues...but it was insufficient for more severe situations such as my large German Shepherd. The following review of it and other products is probably too lengthy of a read for those owners of dogs with moderate problems; but thought I'd include it in case it might help someone who hasn't found anything else that will work for their dog.

I first noticed my pup walking funny when he was 11-12 weeks old. Took him to vet who suspected genetic hip problems. By the time he was 5 months old, he looked like an old arthritic dog when he tried to get up from a down position. He still had all the enthusiasm of a young pup -- his body was just not cooperating. So he was x-rayed which showed severe hip dysplasia (with arthritis already settling in) when he was just 5 months old...basically his hip joints were completely malformed. Went to 2 different orthopedic vets who said that the less extreme surgical options (TPO, etc.) were not an option for him. Full hip replacements of both hip joints would be only option and with no guarantee that his quality of life would improve (not to mention the $10,000 cost for doing both hips!). Docs prescribed strong NSAIDS (anti-inflammatories) along with strong pain meds to be given twice/day for rest of life. Prescription meds helped immensely with his mobility and pain, but he always had a drugged, glazed-eye look to him and his entire personality changed. Of course, the heavy use of NSAIDS also requires bloodwork every 3 months to watch for liver failure -- so it really was a heartbreaking prognosis for such a sweet, beautiful puppy.

I started looking for a more natural solution using supplements that would enhance the health of the rest of his body rather than destroy it. I talked to holistic vets, researched products online, and surfed through a number of horse and dog breeder forums in order to come up with those joint products that might help. I tried four different products (Figuerola Lab's InflammaSaver w/JointSaver, Glyco-Flex III, Springtime Inc.'s Longevity, and Dasuquin/MSM) before settling on the one that worked best for him. I gave each product a minimum of a few weeks in order to give them time to reach their optimum effect. I also used the maximum recommended dosage for each joint product...to the extent that my dog could tolerate the dosage without diarrhea (glucosamine can cause intestinal upset at certain levels in some dogs; mine is one of those).

Of the four, Glyco-Flex III helped the least (while on it, I had to start him back on daily prescription meds). It was very easy to administer though. He's a picky-eater; but he was willing to take it as a "cookie."

Figuerola Lab's products were great; but based upon his size, his max dosage was a total of about 28 capsules/day. Way too many big capsules to push down his throat every day; so I tried disguising them in his food. Even with all sorts of tasty additions to his kibble (chicken/salmon/etc), he would still find many of the capsules and spit them out on the floor. I tried emptying the powder out of the capsules into a meat/veggie mixture that he normally loves, but then he wouldn't eat the food. It was an extremely expensive test of their product since I ended up "losing" so much of it in uneaten food. In order to give the product a fair chance though, I did make sure that he got the total number of capsules each day...which meant counting the number of nasty dissolving capsules on floor and pushing that many "fresh" capsules down his throat. (really a pain in the butt, since the Figuerola Labs supplements were comprised of two completely different capsules...so had to first identify exactly which gooey capsule was disintegrating on the floor). Despite the difficulty in administering the supplement, my pooch did very well on their InflammaSaver and JointSaver...for the first time I had to deal with this big guy racing through the house jumping on furniture and beds. Mixed blessing :) but obviously I was hoping to find another product that worked as well but was easier to give to my dog. Since he was having such great results while on these supplements, I waited 3 months before trying a new product.

Springtime Inc.'s Longevity product was the one I tried next (based upon recommendations from other shepherd owners dealing with severe dysplasia). Their Longevity product is a mix of typical joint supplements (glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM) in a base of powdered bee pollen, spirulina algae, and a bunch of other supposedly healthy stuff. I'm not sure if his joints improved anymore over the Figuerola Labs' products; but they did at least as well (and it was easier to disguise in food). I give him nearly triple the dosage (instructions say you can give up to 3 times/dosage based on severity of need). This is LOTS of dark green powder to add to food; but since I was used to disguising unwanted supplements in his food by now...not a problem. He gets half kibble (grain-free) mixed with fresh chicken, turkey, or salmon and a bit of rehydrated veggie mix for dogs. Mixing the powder in canned dog food also works fine. With the Longevity mixed in, he always stares at his bowl of food first and sighs loudly. Green food...yuck. But then he happily eats it and licks the bowl clean. An additional benefit was that his already nice coat got even lovelier. My vet commented on how bright-eyed and healthy he looked; and was amazed that he never had any other issues typical to shepherds such as ear or skin infections. We decided to start his nearly 12 yo terrier "sister" on Longevity also for any overall health benefits. With just a basic dosage (maybe a smidge more); she has turned into a puppy again. I guess I didn't realize that she might be feeling a bit stiff and sore with her advancing years. Her itchy, dry skin went away and her coat also improved dramatically enough that others have noticed. It was great to see both of them racing up and down hills chasing each other for the first time.

I really wouldn't have looked any further for a joint supplement for my shepherd; but I was still hoping that I could find an easier product -- especially for those vacation times when we have someone else taking care of the critters. Really hoping for an easy product that could just be added to kibble or given as a "cookie." I tried Dasuquin w/MSM (it had been recommended by a holistic vet). Dasuquin was SO easy to give. He's pretty finicky; but he happily eats them as a treat. I was reluctant to completely take my guy off the Longevity that was working so well; so i dropped it back by half and started the Dasuquin/MSM and made sure that the amounts of specific "joint ingredients" (glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM) remained about the same as I eased him off Longevity and onto Dasuquin. Well, I never really got him entirely off the Longevity powder. He would end up having more frequent days of stiffness where I would have to give him prescription pain meds and anti-inflammatories. However, I do still keep a bottle of Dasuquin/MSM on-hand for those times when we're out of town and our doggie caretakers are unable (unwilling?) to fix him his "green stuff." Our 12 yo terrier did fine with her stiffness during her weeks on this product; but she just has arthritis and her situation was not nearly as severe as our shepherd's.

For our shepherd's extreme dysplasia issue, Springtime Inc's Longevity product worked the best. He has now been on Longevity for over a year and a half. Because of the malformation of the joint, obviously no supplement is going to correct it. We're just hoping to keep his pain to a minimum and allow his joints to be as healthy, lubricated, and mobile as we can during these early years...but realize that we may eventually have to go to daily prescription meds as he gets up in years and pain increases. He still needs a dose of prescription meds every couple of weeks or so when he's been chasing too many tennis balls (I can tell he's having a rough day when he can't jump into back of my car or onto the bed). I feel that his current situation though is much better than if he had remained on twice/daily doses of these strong prescription meds every day since the age of 5 months. Although he's big at 100 lbs, he's still quite skinny...and we're determined to keep him that way as a benefit to his joints.

Bottom-line, for dogs just dealing with arthritis issues, it is certainly worth first starting with a joint supplement such as Glyco-Flex III or Dasuquin w/MSM. They are both quality products and because of their palatability are much easier to administer. I offered this long review on other available options primarily for those dog owners who have found nothing else to help their pooch.

Sorry this review is so long...but hope it helps someone else in the same situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars 11 year old "pupply"? Dec 18 2009
By Karin Goode - Published on Amazon.com

Ok¡K The vet recommended Glyco-Flex III Soft Chews by Vetri-Science for our Bull Mastiff Sierra. She was doing GREAT since her life expectancy is 8 and she is 11 but we wanted to make sure her joints were ok. The bag recommends 5 per day for a dog her size but we started only giving her one to slowly introduce her to it. We did notice that she would play with the other dogs a little and seemed to feel great.

Over the last 3 days I noticed Sierra is being a NUT! She is running around like a puppy and super playfull! I asked my boyfriend what the heck is going on with her? He said he started giving her 2 chews a day about a month ago! Holly Molly WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Our old ¡§granny dog¡ is following him all around the house all day like it is dinner time and jumping up on him doing her happy dance. This stuff is GREAT and she LOVES the taste of them! So¡K If you have a Granny Dog¡K you should try this stuff! º

I got this product from my vet as a sample, and I saw an immediate improvement in my dog. He wasn't selling it yet, so I shopped around and Amazon had the best price by far. I am very satisfied. I always am with Amazon.

Still working miracles in my elderly lab as part of a routine to keep her limber and comfortable. She also gets accupuncture and daily massages, but it all works together and has been a blessing to a dog that was on Rimidil by 8 years of age, but off it from year 9-12.
