Hi, I'm Ginnie, this is my
web site, and I have a 10-year-old great Dane
two years we've been using a liquid glucosamine formulation to
arthritis. (He was eight when we started him on it.) I first heard
about liquid glucosamine from a friend who is a researcher at a pharmaceutical
a convincing report
the advantages of using a liquid glucosamine formula – instead
of pills – to treat arthritis in people. So why not dogs?
looked into it, and found a product marketed for primarily
for humans, but of course, dogs could take it, too. Within a few
short weeks the liquid glucosamine product proved
incredibly effective for Merlin, so much so that my husband began
taking it as well.
An active field scientist
and an avid gardener, he was constantly bothered by sore knees... but
At some point Merlin,
who has a more sensitive taste palate than my husband, decided
he didn't like the taste of the product we were using. He refused
to eat it, even when
it is mixed with his
favorite food. It wasn't long before his arthritis symptoms
returned. We had to something. I looked around for another
liquid glucosamine product, and found Flexicose.
After reviewing the ingredients, I decided Flexicose was probably even better
than than what we'd been using before, so we made the switch. Merlin is now back
on track with his morning dose of liquid glucosamine and he's feeling much better.
(My husband has switched, too!)

We're happier with Flexicose for
a couple of reasons:
- First and foremost, Merlin has no objection
to it, and whatever makes Merlin happy, makes me happy. Because Flexicose is
in a water base it's much easier to mix with other foods and beverages,
and that's a big
advantage. It tastes like grapes.
- Both products were similar
in composition, but not identical. Flexicose provided more
Glucosamine HCL and Glucosamine Sulfate along with lots more
Chondroitin. Specifically, Flexicose contains 1500 mg of Glucosamine
HCL and Glucosamine Sulfate and 120 mg of Chondroitin Sulfate per 1/4 ounce serving.
Flexicose also contains MSM and other important synergistic ingredients.

Note: Merlin passed
away about six months after this article was written. He was losing control of
his back legs and falling down a lot. Just as had been the case a couple
of years earlier with his littermate, there was nothing that could
be done for him medically. (It was probably an inherited condition.)
We let Merlin go when his "bad days" began to outnumber his
good ones. I still miss him terribly, but I'm grateful that were were able to
successfully manage his arthritis
during his twilight years and keep him happy for so long.
