I finally broke down and got Sierra some Glycoflex II.  I'm only giving her 1/3 a tablet at first to see how her stomach likes it.

Anyone else's dog on this?  I'll let you know how she does on it.

Katie, have you seen any results? 

Sierra seems to like it now.  The first day she took it and then gave me this look like "Hey, are you trying to trick me?  Where's my deramaxx???" (she loves the deramaxx)

Started my 5-year-old Corgi,  Heidi, on it  last month.  She loves it & is no longer lame (x-rays showed arthritis)  Make sure you dose your dog according to the directions, by weight. Otherwise, it wont work.

when I remember to give it to my dogs they like it fine because it is a chewable that is beef flavored (or something like that)

We just started Orry on the Glycoflex as well. We're trying to keep his remaining three legs as healthy as we can.

Melody, that is great that Sierra likes Deramax. Orry is so fussy and will spit it out, I always have to hide it in his food.

Brenda, she seems to think it's a treat.  LOL  I give her the deramaxx, phenylpropanol, and the glycoflex.  She's gets all excited like it's her daily bonus.

She will be on glycoflex one month soon.  I had to do it differently than they say.  It says to start one full tablet for a month, then work down to 1/2 for maintenance.  At the same time, I had to buy her new treats because the store was out of her favorites.  She got the pukie joes two days in a row.  Got rid of the treats and worked the glycoflex up to 1/2 tablet which she seems to tolerate well.
