Those that use Glyco Flex: how do you get your dogs to eat them? I like the ingredients, but I have to make Blaze swallow it.

Do you use the chews? My dogs aren't picky at all, so that probably helps! I give it to Rylie as a "treat" with her breakfast.

My guys will just eat them straight. I typically put it in their food bowl and they eat it while eating their kibble. They definitely don't dislike them because both dogs have been known to eat around/spit back out other pills in their food... I guess they just don't find the taste offensive. We use the regular pills.

I don't use Glyco Flex, but I put a dollop of yogurt on their food with the pills in it.

She's only 2 years 10 months with no signs of joint issues at all, but I give her half a Cosiqiuen (sp?) regular strength + (I think) once a day. She also gets fish oil every other day.

I use the chews. Mia's not crazy about them but will eat it once she realizes I'm not giving out better food. Summer eats anything pretty much. They get it as a treat for when I'm headed to work.

I normally use Pet Naturals Hip & Joint and Wapiti Labs Mobility. The Pet Naturals is a glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM blend, in a tablet form. Missy gets 1 1/2 tablets, Jack gets 1/2 tablet. The Mobility is a Chinese herb/elk velvet blend, and it comes in a powder, three scoops for Missy and one for Jack. They just get mixed in with their food.

I recently got a couple of Hyalogic products for free, so I'll be trying those in place of the Pet Naturals when I run out.
