    Seems to be pretty good. I know the big issue with these supplements is how pure are they? I think a lot of vets carry this, and I know a lot of people use it, so I'm going to guess it's pretty pure.

    I have used it, and have had a few vets rocommend it.

    Does it work? No one really knowss for sure, but one thing for sure is it can't hurt if you can afford it. Personally, I never saw any change, but then again, my dog didn't have any elbow or hip problems either... He had other issues like a torn ACL and a problem with his neck.

    Give it a try for 6-8 weeks..you should be able to see if it is heliping at all by then if you are currently seeing a limp. If the dog does not have a limp, then you probably won't see any change at all...

    I'm suspicious of supplements sold by vets. There's often a BIG markup on them.

    Try Googling Glycoflex and see the range of prices. Your vet may be charging you twice as much as you could buy it for online.

    For the last 3 1/2 years I've given my Puff a daily tab of my human supplement Glucosame & Chondroitin (COSTCO/Kirkland). Consumer Union recently rated this brand tops.
