GlycoFlex® Stage 3 hip & joint supplements are clinically proven to increase hind leg strength by up to 41% in just four weeks!* This formula for dogs of all sizes is made with green-lipped mussel, glucosamine, MSM, and other beneficial nutrients to support joint health and mobility. Imitation chicken flavor is appropriate for pets with sensitivities to protein, and convenient chewable tablets make it easy to provide powerful daily joint support for dogs.

Your dog can also enjoy the benefits of advanced joint support in GlycoFlex® Stage 3 bite-sized chews, which are tasty and chewy enough to be given as a daily treat!

Ingredient Highlights

GlycOmega™ Green-Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) is the foundation of our formula and nature’s perfect blend for joint support. This New Zealand mussel is a whole-food organism and a natural source of glucosamine as well as hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids. 

Glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCl) is a critical nutrient for building healthy connective tissue and is one of the foundational compounds in cartilage. GlycoFlex® Stage 3 uses only the highest quality forms of glucosamine from sources like shrimp & crab. Some other joint supplements use more synthetically produced glucosamine, which may not be as well-absorbed by the body.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a sulfur compound found naturally in your dog's body that supports the structure of joints and connective tissue, as well as many bodily processes including collagen synthesis. Manganese also supports the formation of collagen, which is required for optimal cartilage structure and integrity.

DMG (N-N-Dimethylglycine) supports your dog's overall comfort and performance by supporting blood circulation, efficient oxygen utilization, and energy.

Vitamins E & C, Selenium, and L-Glutathione provide antioxidant support to promote free-radical-scavenging activities. Grape Seed Extract (Vitis vinifera) is another powerful antioxidant that can support blood flow and healthy joints.

Storage instructions: Store in a cool, dry place.
