Using Glyco-Flex for Cats

Glyco-flex for felines come in two stages (GlycoFlex I and GlycoFlex II).  Your vet will be best placed to suggest which one is better suited to the needs of your cat.  Stage I is more of a preventative aid to maintaining healthy joints whilst Stage II has more active ingredients designed to help cats with more serious joint concerns.

Whichever you are using, it is usual to use a higher dose for an initial four to six week period.  Then when symptoms have been shown to decrease a smaller maintenance dose can be followed as detailed below.

Glyco-Flex I

Each Stage I tablet contains 300g of GlycOmega Perna (Green Lipped Mussel) as its single active ingredient.  This is harvested in New Zealand and tested to ensure consistent quality across the range.  GlycOmega Perna contains a range of compounds, minerals and vitamins essential for good joint health.  The building blocks of connective tissue (ligaments, tendons and cartilage) in the form of the full range of major glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) including Chondroitin Sulfates and Hyaluronic Acid.

The initial daily dosage needed is as follows:

  • Cats from 1 to 8 lbs – 1 tablet
  • Cats over 8 lbs – 2 tablets

The maintenance dose to be followed from 4 to 6 weeks is:

  • Cats from 1 to 8 lbs – 1/2 tablet
  • Cats over 8 lbs – 1 tablet

Glyco-Flex Stage I is supplied as a chewable tablet that most cats find tasty.

Glyco-Flex II

The Stage II formula is available in both chewable tablet form, or as a chicken liver flavored soft chew.  As well as containing GlycOmega Perna (Green Lipped Mussel) additional anti-oxidents, vitamins and minerals are included with DMG, glucosamine, MSM and manganese.  The aim is to make the active ingredients work more effectively in combination to really boost joint health and maintain mobility.

The initial 4 – 6 week daily dosage is as follow:

  • 1 tablet or 2 chews to be given for every 10lbs of body weight.

The daily maintenance schedule is then reduced to:

  • 1/2 a tablet, or 1 chew to be given for every 10lbs of body weight.

If more than one tablet or chew are needed daily, split them up between the morning and afternoon.

The Glycoflex range is natural and has been shown to be safe for pets, with no interaction with other medications noted.  Of course when using any new treatments it is always a good idea to discuss them with your vet.  They will have a better idea of which products are most likely to be effective, and whether they are duplicate other treatments already being used.

Glyco-Flex Range

As well as tablets and chews to help feline cats, Glyco-Flex is also supplied in a powder or granule formula to help horses, as well as tablet or soft chew form to help dogs.  Glyco-Flex for cats is worth trying if you are concerned about mobility issues.  Glycoflex II is the best choice for older animals with obvious signs of joint damage already evident.
