I highly recommend Fido-Flex, I own an older heeler who’s body doesn’t always feel the best but his mind is still very young there for it’s also hard to keep him calm when he isn’t feeling the best and we aren’t able to pin point his discomfort. But since using Fido-Flex he has felt his very best each and every day he goes to the barn!

Chondroitin Sulfate works synergistically with glucosamine in the production of new cartilage and inhibits the effects of various enzymes that breakdown cartilage. It also helps to support a natural inflammatory response lending to overall joint health and comfort.
Glucosamine is the building block of chondroitin sulfate, a specific type of polysulfide glycosaminoglycan (GAG), a small but complex molecule has an important role in both the production and protection of joints. Glucosamine plays multiple roles within joint function/health. It helps increase the production of new GAGs and therefore new cartilage has also been shown to inhibit the free radicals and enzymes that aid in cartilage degradation.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) helps support healthy cartilage and joint fluid. Hyaluronic acid is what makes joint fluid "sticky" because it is known to protect cells in the joint, HA is especially useful during periods of high-level joint stress.
MSM: (Methylsulfonylmethane) Assists body to produce its own internal antioxidants which helps support natural inflammatory response by providing protection against oxidative stress. It is a great source of sulfur, which plays an important role in maintaining the health of collagen, cartilage, hooves, hair and joint fluid.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is an antioxidant that plays a role in helping combat harmful free radicals. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect the tissues of the body and also important in the production of connective tissues like tendons and ligaments.
Yucca is an herb native to North and Central America used by ancient and modern civilizations to address musculoskeletal discomfort. Active ingredients have been isolated from Yucca that have shown to have antioxidant properties to help support natural inflammatory response.
Can the soft chews be fed as a treat?
MVP: Yes, the chews are a very palatable liver flavoring and can be given as a treat or added to your canines kibble meal.
My dog is a year old does he need a supplement like Fido-Flex now?
MVP: Thank you for inquiring. That is a great question. A canine can benefit from starting a support supplement early in it's life, especially for breeds prone to issues. The ingredients in Fido-Flex (Glucosamine, MSM, Chondroitin Sulfate and Sodium Hyaluronate(HA) are going to help to provide natural support from life's daily wear and tear.
I am one who usually does not write reviews, but I had to on this one. Plus, I use the horse supplements and love, so I figured why not try the dog? I was looking for something to help support him in his senior years. Back story, I have a 9 year old cocker dachshund who has IVVD and had the spinal surgery when he was 4 and now has has decreased mobility in his right back leg. Both my husband and I can not get over the visible changes we have seen in just 3 weeks!! He has been more playful and energetic. Every day he looks forward to getting his chew! I can not say enough good things about this product! Thank you MVP!!
