VetriScience® Laboratories’ GlycoFlex® Classic 600 mg is a chewable tablet that supports joint and connective tissue function in canines. It is the foundation for our entire GlycoFlex® Stages line of hip and joint support for pets and, is recommended for joint health maintenance programs for puppies and dogs throughout their lives.
GlycoFlex® hip and joint support for dogs contains perna canaliculus, an edible green-lipped mussel sourced from the waters of New Zealand. The perna has been freeze-dried so that the whole organism is included, providing many of the nutrients necessary to maintain healthy connective tissue. It is rich in amino acids, polypeptides, naturally chelated minerals, fatty acids, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), vitamins, glycoproteins, protein complexes, polysaccharides and the nucleic acids RNA and DNA. Perna contains all major classes of GAGs including chondroitin 4 and 6 sulfates and hyaluronic acid that occur in connective tissue such as joint cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluids. The nutrients provided from Perna also are known to support other systems in the body including sperm motility, vascular system, bladder function, immune system function, and gut health.
The perna used in GlycoFlex® products is GlycOmega™ brand perna canaliculus exclusive to VetriScience® Laboratories.
