GlycoFlex Challenge Launches Today

Do you use glucosamine or other supplements for your dogs? I know a lot of people do, for various reasons. Most common, people use glucosamine to help with the pain and inflexibility of joints with arthritis. Some people use it preventatively in dogs without evidence, or without severe evidence, of pain or trouble moving around. Most people I know in the dog sport world use glucosamine or other supplements for their active dogs, even the ones who are quite young.

VetriScience, the company who produces Glycoflex, has a new product out now, Glycoflex Plus. Glycoflex Plus is a combination of glucosamine, chondroitin, Perna, DMG, MSM and important antioxidants and has been shown in trials to improve hind leg strength by 41% in just four weeks. And now, Vetriscience wants to prove it to you. You can sign up for the GlycoFlex Challenge and be sent a month's worth of GlycoFlex Plus to try with your dog.

Signing up is simple. You just need to take a video of your dog that shows their hind end weakness, then go to and upload the video. Fill out the information and request your free product. When the GlycoFlex Plus arrives, start using it according to the feeding instructions. At the end of a month, take and post a follow up video showing your dog's hind end movement and strength after a month on GlycoFlex Plus.

This video above is Koira's before video. The double striding she shows on the way to the box is new for her within the past few months. While it is hard to pinpoint an exact cause, chances are pretty good that it is a combination of not pushing off with her rear, not extending her fore (due to old injuries in the right front), and possibly some confidence issues. We'll be addressing the confidence issues with some drills in practice. And I have her on GlycoFlex Plus now, to see if adding a high quality supplement makes a difference. I am looking forward to seeing if we can improve her strength and flexibility through supplementation and training.

As we go further with this challenge, I will post updates on how the Glycoflex seems to be working. And while we did receive Glycoflex Plus in exchange for trying it out and helping to promote the GlycoFlex Challenge, our honest opinions and honest experiences are what is going to be shared on the blog.
