Glyco-Flex III Joint Supplements (soft chews)

It took me forever to find a place that would ship these from the US to Canada, but they came in the mail today. We purchased them to help with Jaida's hip dysplasia and associated joint pain. The manufacturer is Vetri-Science.

First off, I'll say that buying them online was WAAAAAY cheaper than buying similar supplements at the vet. We got them off ebay from the "entirelypetsstore", a year's worth for just over $100 including shipping.

The ingredients:

Recommended for those that need maximum joint and connective tissue support. GLYCO-FLEX® III represents Stage III of our comprehensive stage of life program for joint support. It’s also recommended by veterinarians for geriatric and working dogs as well as a follow-up to orthopedic surgery.

I'm mainly starting this thread to remind me to do a review on the results after we complete the loading dose. All the reviews I've read about the product have been really favourable, and I've had a few breeders of large-breed working dogs recommend it to me. We'll see what happens.
